Excellent Service. I would recommend him to anyone when they need a quick and reliable serviceman. My AC went out and my house was 94 degrees at 9 pm on a Sunday night and within minutes of his arrival I had a working AC unit.

Anthony was prompt when called, made time to stop by the house quickly when the upstairs AC went out. He had a new unit installed within a few hours on the day of my request. I would recommend Anthony's Air Service!

Michael and his team were very thorough and responsive. I had a completely new AC Unit installed and the old one removed. I received a detailed quote from Michael, which included the scope of work and the cost for materials. After accepting the proposal, Michael and his team were out the next day and completed the work. The experience was great and would definitely recommend Michael and his team for you HVAC needs.

Responded and came out within an hour of requesting through Thumbtack. Fixed AC unit within a couple of minutes and showed me how to replace the pump to save myself some money. Very friendly and fast. Saving their number should anything else go wrong.

My AC unit would not stop running. I call SEVERAL companies and none of them could come out that day. When I called Scott Heating and Air they were able to schedule me in that day! The tech was very efficient and polite. The owner is a real nice honest guy. The price was very reasonable! I will definitely use Scott Heating and Air from now on!

Installing the AC evaporator and condenser went well, and installing a new zone damper went well. They checked and verified everything, and cleaned up well. The unit is much more quite than the previous one.

Ighor did a great job replacing my 15 year old Goodwin heat pump. I had 5 estimates and he had the best price. He came to the house to give me the estimate and then answered all the questions I had when I was selecting new equipment brand model. I decided on Lennox and he was able to get me a good price on the unit. The installation was done on Saturday and took only 2.5 hours replacing both the air handler in the attic and the condenser outside. Everything was done professionally and I highly recommend Iggy's Air.

Courtney from North East Solutions LLC came out on a Sunday, the week we got back from vacation (for which, during the time away, our AC went). It was quite hard to diagnose what the issue was but what I appreciate about Courtney is that he wants to be absolutely sure what the exact problem is before jumping in and replacing something that doesn't need to be replaced. Me and my wife both work from home so it is imperative we stay cool during our work days. Courtney worked through the week diligently, providing questions and text updates of progress. I loved it. Many other service providers call you about every little thing. Courtney was concise and patient as he explained to me what he believed was going on & what needed to be done to fix and he even followed up if he hadn't heard from me (if anything changed at the house while he was away). He was an Absolute Professional. In the end, Courtney came through 100%; he fixed our unit before a 100+ degree weekend was approaching. He even is looking out for us in terms of a part that needs to be replaced in the future, making sure we have it prior to warranty on the AC unit expiring. I will call no other guy for help in the future - Courtney is the REAL DEAL. I can't recommend Courtney enough for your A/C and Heating needs: Excellent customer support ✓, reasonable prices ✓, and patience through the whole process ✓. Thanks Courtney!

I called Hay's heating and air-conditioning after discovering that my heat was not working properly. I was able to make an appointment for a technician to come out within just a couple hours to my house. The technician called 20 minutes before arrival to make sure I was at home. When he showed up he had a smile on his face and a presentable clean uniform. He removed his shoes before entering my home. After investigating my system he gave me a couple options of replacing a part or replacing my system. Since I had an older system and was looking for a more environmentally friendly system he gave me three options of systems to choose from. He was very attentive to my request and needs for this new system and answered all of my questions there on the spot. I told him I needed to speak with my husband that night, he was very respectful of this decision and let me know that he would call me in the morning. The next morning he called just as he said he would and we were able to set up an appointment for that day to install my new system. The technician from Hay's heating and air-conditioning went through everything with me to make sure that I knew everything there was to know about my new system and how to work it. Overall this was a great experience and I have recommended Hay's to my friends and family. Great job Hay's!

Elvis installed new AC ducts for a room addition and performed a routine maintenance on my AC units. I was very satisfied with his work and would use his services again. His price was very competitive. His work shows that he is a professional and knowledgeable.

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 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 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 much does it cost for a new air conditioning unit?

If you’re ready for a new air conditioning unit, it’s time to start exploring HVAC prices. 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. 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. 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. For a whole-house air conditioning system with coils, condenser and line (not including installation or ductwork), the cost from a big-box store 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.
