Tony was exceptionally friendly and professional, showing up exactly when he said he'd be here and getting right to work on diagnosing the problem. He quickly found what was wrong, found the necessary parts, and had my AC up and running in a few hours for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend Tony for any heating and cooling system work.

Anthony's air service replaced my coil on my upstairs unit. He was on time and explained everything very thoroughly. My downstairs unit went out and I called him again to have that replaced. He came when it was convenient for me and was very reasonably priced, especially compared to quotes given to me by the bigger companies. I will use Anthony's Air Service for all my air and heating needs.

I tried to select all five for this review but the button function will not allow me to select five buttons for review. My heating unit went completely out and my greatest fear was that it was going to be a huge issue. Michael responded promptly to my request through thumbtack and scheduled an appointment to come out and assessment my unit within a short period after receiving the request. Michael was very thorough with his assessment of the unit. Explained to me what he was doing along the way. Affordable and did not take all day to assess and address the issue. He talked and very simple terms so that i could understand what he was assessing and very personable. He made me feel at ease. I was very pleased and have scheduled for someone to come out in the spring from this company. Feeling at peace now that i have heat again. Thank you Michael!!!!

We figured we needed a quick-and-easy fix for our outdoor air conditioning unit, and Matt was able to fix the problem without any trouble. He also left us with good advice to prevent further issues.

Cameron responded to my request quickly and notified me about the promotional offers he had for Heating and Cooling systems maintenance. He completed my HVAC system regular maintenance next day and billed me for a great price. I recommend him for anyone who needs heating/cooling system maintenance.

Brett was awesome. Came out same day to fix an issue with a supply duct and floor register. He knocked that out. Then I casually I asked him to look my the 3rd hvac system which only services my bonus room and previously stopped working. I’ve had two other companies quote this repair and they both said it needed to be replaced. Brett spent and hour on it and got it back up and running perfectly. Labor and parts came to ~250$ (on this repair) vs replacement quotes of $6k+. Brett is a great guy running an honest and straight forward heating and air business. Highly recommend.

What an great company! The office staff was amazingly friendly and helpful and the guys who came out to clean our dryer vent were courteous and knowledgable. They even looked in our air ducts and said nothing needed to be cleaned yet and everything was sealed properly. We really appreciated the honesty! We are now set up for a yearly dryer vent cleaning and will get a reminder email in about 3.5 years to get the air ducts cleaned.

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.

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.

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 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.
