Brian provided me with plumbing service on two toilets. He was so nice and very affordable. I was not at the property he serviced since I am just the landlord, but he kept in constant communication with me to let me know when he was going, his findings, and when he would send the invoice. I will definitely be contacting him for any future handyman needs!

Cameron, from Southern Comfort, was an exceptionally professional repair technician. He was open and honest about what he thought the issue was (a leak in refrigerant pipe) and what he was going to do to fix it (he soldered the pipe and tested it for further leaks). He was open to replacing the R22 refrigerant with an alternative (something I wanted) and was able to turn all of this around in 2 days. This experience was exceptional and I would DEFINITELY recommend Southern Comfort's services to others.

Although I ended up not needing them, I'm giving them 5 stars anyway! I mentioned in my message that I'd only been in the house for five months, and Wayne suggested I check my home warranty first to see if my ailing HVAC was covered. It was, indeed, and so he saved me some $$. I really really appreciated his honesty, and if I need HVAC repair in the future, I will call them first!

Communication for booking appt and technician status was excellent. Technicians were professional and friendly. The only issue was they have a new tablet based system for documenting the service and collecting payment that the technicians couldn't get to cooperate.

Their technicians were very knowledgeable and very helpful with my situation. They were able to give me solution to that situation. They were also able to help me with my allergies and sinus problems. By putting a product in my ductwork that purifies my air and keeps air clean in my home. On top of that it protect my heating and air-conditioning system by keeps it clean inside that system. I highly recommend anybody to use them for service work.

Al came right out on time on a Saturday! I appreciate his insight and his ability to explain all of his work so we would understand exactly what he did. He has a locally owned, licensed business that I would definitely recommend to all my friends who need HVAC service or maintenance. Al was super friendly and if I ever need service again he will be the first I call.

Courtney from North East Services did some excellent work for me on short notice on a Saturday. My upstairs attic A/C system wasn't kept in good shape (by previous owner) when I had bought my home; one-day, water backed up in the A/C emergency pan and leaked through my ceiling. The next day (a hot hot Saturday), I located North East Services on Thumbtack and Courtney came by same-day after giving me a good detail estimate. He diagnosed multi issues with my upstairs A/C unit: His thourough explanation gave me the peace of mind of knowing exactly what the problems were. There were multiple issues that Courtney fixed for me on his trip out: bad electrical connection on A/C fan, incorrectly mounted A/C water overflow shutoff mechanism (leading to ceiling damage), then he proceeded to clean out the A/C drainage hose and check the function of the A/C compressor outside (he added one pound freon). I would recommend Courtney to work on your HVAC; he's skilled, articulate, and fair on price!. Eric

I contacted Mr. Ross about checking out my HVAC unit on a condo I was under contract on. He was very professional and punctual in his response. He was very thorough and most importantly he took the time to teach me things about the unit and what he was looking at while he was doing at. Definitely the best HVAC service technician I have ever hired and would highly recommend someone looking for an experienced professional. You will definitely feel like it was money well spent.

    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.

    Do you need to clean your air ducts?

    Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

    You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

    How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

    How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

    Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

    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.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
