Paul was a great service contractor. He was thorough and detailed in his explanations of our problems. He was willing to help us find solutions that worked within our budget at the time. We have since seen others and are coming back to Paul because he is to be the most trusted HVAC contractor I have met.

I thumbtacked 1st Priority for issues with my AC. No cool air was coming out of the vents! My experience was great. In 5 mins Lewis (my contractor) knew what was wrong and how to fix it. The service was professional and efficient. Well worth the cost.

Marcus did a great job repairing not just the fridge, but our dryer, dishwasher, and an attempt at our washer which couldn't be repaired due to a large hole in the liner. We felt the pricing was very reasonable for all machines. He did have some truck issues which caused him to be delayed to the appts. (We had 2 appts for all the machines.) However, his expertise was worth the wait and who doesn't have car trouble sometimes. We will definitely call him again for maintenance on the appliances and any other repairs in the future!

I highly recommend Bob from Renovation Pro. He did an excellent job and gave a fair price. You can see the before and after photos. This tile was extremely heavy and required many individual cuts. I wanted a contractor that was local and experienced, that's Bob!!

This winter my furnace had kicked the bucket during a cold spell, leaving me and my family with no heat. Joey came out right away to take a look at it, and resolved the problem quickly and efficiently. Not only was he prompt, friendly, and quick working, he was also super affordable and did repairs without breaking the bank! I would recommended him to anyone without hesitation! If you need HVAC work done, Joey is the way to go!

Received various bids and selected Action Plumbing due to price and their availability to do the water heater replacement asap They also had knowledge of what was required to get my installation up to current codes and discussed what was needed and their bid included everything. The big box stores all needed days just to provide a bid. Action provided their bid within minutes, then arrived on site, on time, to confirm a replacement was really required vs. just a simple fix. All work was completed within a few hours. They hauled the old water heater away and the garage was spotless when they left. No need to wait for a big box store contractor when Action did it the same day I called and with a competitive price too... perfect. Hope all my future contractor hires go as smooth as this one did. Thanks Thumtack for hooking me up with Action Plumbing! You saved me money and the hassles of dealing with 3rd party contractors and helps us avoid many days of a leaking water heater.

Aurora was wonderful to work with; JT is knowledgeable, timely, a reasonable price, and incredibly polite and professional. He came to service our HVAC, as well as inspect a leak in the attic. On top of that, he changed out the air filters and offered advice on a roofing issue. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest and quick mechanic.

Steve Moore Heating and Cooling is highly recommended by me after my experience. I needed two WiFi thermostats installed. They contacted me almost immediately on thumbtack and had a more competitive rate than any other company. Taylor was my technician. He was prompt and knowledgeable and got the job done much quicker than expected. Very good company. Will be using them for future HVAC needs. Nothing beats fair and honest pricing for high quality work!

Mike was sensitive to our desires and plans. He did quality work at a fraction of the estimated cost of two other contractors that were asked to submit an estimate. We plan to bring him back for additional work.

I came home from work to the misery of a hot house and a broken A/C unit. I reached out for help and Shelton responded immediately. I was afraid I would be forced to deal with the heat throughout the night due the issue being identified late in the day, but Shelton came out after the sun had gone down with his headlamp ready to work. He correctly identified the issue from my Thumbtack description and had it fixed in less than 10 minutes. He also identified another fault with my unit, which sure enough made itself known the very next day. I called and he came back and repaired that swiftly, as well -- all of this service delivered at a very reasonable price with a friendly, Kentucky accent. I would highly recommend Shelton for any HVAC issues.

My wife stayed home and met with Travis - he arrived exactly when we had planned and was a pleasure for her to deal with. She was made to feel comfortable with the work being done and everything she wanted explained was explained well and patiently. We plan to work with Travis again on our future, larger, HVAC projects.

This company responded to my hvac leaking through my ceiling on a Sunday morning. From the time I went online searching for services to having someone at my door was about an hour. It took about 5 minutes and I was told what the problem was and my options to fix it. I literally mean 5 minutes. Highly recommend for anyone one looking for a quick reliable service.

I filled out a request online to be matched with HVAC contractors and Jeff with Air Source was one of the companies I was matched with. I had a couple of other guys come out to give me a quote on replacing my evaporator coil and almost told Jeff not to bother coming. He offered to meet me at my house on Saturday afternoon and boy am I glad I had him come by. He crawled up under the house and took a very detailed look at what I was dealing with. He was honest, straight forward and didn't try to upsell me on anything. He gave me a ballpark quote to replace the evaporator coil and a new unit, since I requested both. He said he would call me back to confirm the price on Monday morning and he did. I ended up hiring him to replace my A/C and my evaporator coil. It was a very tough job b/c my crawlspace is extra tight, but his team did great and finished in a timely manner, fixed several things that didn't have to be fixed and cleaned up after themselves when they left. If you would like a good, honest and reliable company to service your HVAC, then I would highly recommend Jeff with Air Source.

Jason came out to a home that my clients had listed with very short notice. He inspected their unit, gave his recommendations with more than fair pricing, serviced the unit, and then called the soon-to-be new owner and explained to her and her buyer's agent exactly what he did. His professionalism, quick response, willingness to go above and beyond, and great pricing are definitely what sets his company apart from the others. Lets be honest, having to call an HVAC company isn't anyone's favorite thing to do, but knowing that Elite will make sure you are taken care of makes it a whole lot easier when that time comes!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who fixes furnaces?

If your furnace needs to be repaired, you’ll want to find a qualified heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) repair technician. Each state has its own licensing requirements; some require all HVAC technicians to have an HVAC license, while others only require someone operating an HVAC service and installation company with employees to hold a contractor’s license. For example, in Alabama, the Alabama Board of Heating Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Contractors regulates licensing, while in Kansas there is no state regulatory body and HVAC licensing can vary by region. For simple furnace repairs like changing out a filter, a trusted handyman can probably handle the job, but a trained professional should be hired for tasks like replacing a gas valve, installing a new inducer fan motor or other critical furnace repair jobs that involve dealing with gas leaks or other dangerous conditions. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring 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 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. Energystar.gov 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.

How much will it cost me to replace my furnace?

The national average for furnace replacement is between $1,800 and $2,500. The cost can range dramatically higher depending on the model of furnace you select, any repair work you require, your location and the cost of installation. Furnace installation costs can be more than the furnace itself due to the cost of doing business and the expertise needed to install the HVAC equipment. Installing a new furnace generally requires technical know-how and the proper tools and licensing. It’s best to hire a pro and budget for furnace installation rather than risk potentially unsafe DIY installation. This will ensure your home’s safety. Check to see if your HVAC contractor has the proper licensing to do the job. If you need duct repair or replacement, expect to pay more for your furnace installation costs. The price for duct repair could be an hourly rate ranging on average anywhere from $85 to $150 per hour, with additional costs for parts.
