Because we had just got home from our honeymoon, it wasnt the best time financially to be dishing out several thousand dollars for new HVAC (and frankly there is never a good time for such a thing). I had people trying to sell me everything from insulting roof panels to duct sealing. I decided to go with Neil Harris because they offered 0 percent financing which I later found out was a scam after talking with Mike at RES-Q. Mike explained to me that there was a charge for 0 percent financing so essentially Im paying interest up front. I appreciated his honesty and decided to give RES-Q my business (best decision I couldve made looking back). So once I committed to RES-Q they put me on the schedule. They were here when they said they would be. They installed a new furnace and air conditioner. They also installed a damper system to help with hot and cold rooms (all for cheaper than any other quote Id received). Fast forward a couple of weeks and my house wouldnt keep cool, so I called RES-Q on a Friday night and they had a guy at my house within an hour. He determined there was a leak of some sort and recharged my system (at no cost to me). All was well for a couple more weeks and then my house wouldnt stay cool AGAIN!! So I called RES-Q back out and of course they showed up very quickly and started running tests. They put a dye in the system to check for any leaks, recharged it (again no cost to me) and said theyd be back in a few days to check if any dye could be seen. They showed up as promised and determined my brand new Lennox air conditioner had a leak from the factory. Mike (the owner) called me personally to tell me the news. I asked if he could just fix it, He then proceeded to tell me he refused to put a bandaid on a brand new unit and would instead be putting in a whole new unit. I got a little nervous thinking about the cost of things. He told me that this one is on him!!! I couldnt believe it. He told me that Lennox asked them to fix the leak and send them a bill. He declined. People like Mike are rare. He was honest with me from day 1. He saved me literally thousands of dollars. He stood behind his work, and basically did the job twice. And never once asked me for an extra dime. So Mike, and all of the RES-Q team .. THANK YOU! Youve earned a life long customer.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is an HVAC system?

The letters in HVAC stand for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. An HVAC system enables you to regulate your home or building’s internal temperature (thermal control) for comfortable living and working. You can bring heat levels down in the summer and up in the winter, keeping your home or office livable year-round. HVAC systems can also help with humidity levels and regulate indoor air quality in a home or office. There are many types of HVAC systems and technologies available.

Many homes have a forced-air HVAC system. Both the heating and the central air conditioning units share a ductwork system where they either push in or pull out warm or cooled air. There are also heating and cooling systems that don’t require ductwork — such as ductless mini-splits — but work on the same principles of heat exchange. The national average to hire an HVAC specialist is $2,920-$3,670, with costs varying depending on the work you need done and the equipment you are installing.

How much does it cost for a new air conditioning unit?

If you’re purchasing from a big-box store, you can expect to pay approximately $120-$1,000 for a window unit. Window units are appealing for their quick setup and relatively low cost, but they can use more energy over time than central air and only cool the room in which they’re installed. The price will vary depending on the type of air conditioner you buy and its cooling capacity. Window units, which require minimal installation, are one of the most affordable options on the market. Portable air conditioners don’t have the cooling power of a window unit, but they do have the perk of being transportable from room to room. Expect to pay between $225 and $800 for a portable air conditioner, on average. The cost of an air conditioning system with coils, condenser and line (not including installation or ductwork) can range from approximately $2,000 to $4,000 or more. If you don’t have (and don’t want to put in) ducts, a ductless mini-split air conditioner is a good option, although pricey up front. Pricing can range from $650 to $4,250 per unit on average; you’ll need one unit for each room in which you want temperature control.





How much does it cost to get central air?

Prices for central-air HVAC systems will vary. The national average to hire an HVAC specialist is $2,920-$3,670 but can run as high as $5,000 or even $12,000 depending on the capacity you need and other factors. Installing central air conditioning requires an entire system that works together to draw hot air out of your home. The system includes an outdoor unit, which houses the condenser and compressor, and the evaporator coils. If you don’t have an existing duct system, ductwork will need to be installed, which will affect labor and material costs. Leaking or damaged ducts will also need to be replaced.

How many years does HVAC last?

The number of years an HVAC system lasts depend on the type and brand of components that make up your system. The lifespan of an air conditioner averages between 15 and 20 years. The life expectancy of a tankless water heater is approximately 20 years, while a storage water heater is closer to 10-15 years. Ducts may need replacing within 10-15 years. Your equipment will have a longer life if you have regular tuneups and maintenance to keep everything in good working order. If you’re having repair problems and your HVAC system is over 10 years old, it’s a good time to consider the costs and benefits of repairing vs. replacing. provides the following tips to help you decide whether to repair or replace:

  • Your HVAC system needs frequent repairs and your energy bills are increasing.
  • Your cooling or heating equipment is less efficient.
  • Rooms in your home are too hot or too cold.
  • Your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old.
    • Replacing your system with an Energy Star-certified unit could save up to 20 percent on your heating and cooling bills.
  • Your furnace or boiler is more than 15 years old.
    • You may choose to replace your system with an Energy Star-certified furnace (which is 15 percent more efficient than a conventional furnace) or an Energy Star-certified boiler (which is 5 percent more efficient).
  • Your home has humidity problems.
  • Your home has excessive dust.
    • Leaky ducts can pull particles and air from attics, crawl spaces and basements and distribute them throughout your house. Sealing your ducts may be a solution.
  • Your heating or cooling system is noisy.
    • You could have an undersized duct system or a problem with the indoor coil of your cooling equipment.
  • Your score on the Home Energy Yardstick is below five.
    • That means your home energy use is above average and you're probably paying too much for your utilities.
