We needed electrical work to support a larger project ongoing at the house. Victor quickly responded to our request, was on time, worked well with our other contractors, and did a great job. He was flexible as the electrical job evolved - based on other contractor activities - and communicated with me proactively about his plan, the change to the budget etc. We have followup work ahead and will definitely use him.

Tony was honest and fair - Although my AC couldn't be repaired, he walked me through everything he replaced in an effort to fix it. I would hire him again for HVAC repairs.

Charles helped me with updating my 2 bathrooms. I live in North Raleigh and my wife and I have been interested in getting this done for some time now. Originally we were just going to keep it very simple (update hardware, new mirrors, etc.) but when we spoke with Charles and he presented an option that was still within our budget and included so much more, we were excited to move ahead. Not only did we end up with 2 bathrooms that we don't even recognize -in a good way- Charles also had it done in a timely manner and had everything cleaned up and all extra material ready for return before he left on the last day. You could tell Charles really knows what he is doing and is more concerned with customers being satisfied and coming back to him in the future instead of a quick fleecing like many construction companies tend to do. I highly recommend A Hammer And Nail. Just let Charles know what you are looking to do and he will do his best to get it done.

Matt was able to provide same-day HVAC system repair when my A/C stopped working in 100-degree weather. He took the time to explain the issue and the repair plan. My system was up and running in 2 hours. I will use his services again if I ever need him in the future.

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!

Bill replied to our initial request to build a small portico roof over our front door. We had some ideas in mind, but appreciated Bill's honesty that some of our plans may not be best for our house. He worked with us to come up with a better plan, and we could not be happier with it. Since we were impressed with him, we asked him to do other repairs from our inspection report. Bill was hard working, honest and did a thorough job. We will definitely contact him again if needs arise!

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 was terrified about undergoing a remodel of two bathrooms. GreyHouse took away all my anxiety. Every aspect of the project was handled with professionalism…from the initial proposal down to the finished project. They kept me informed of the work schedule and all of their workers were conscientious about keeping mess and disruption to a minimum. I love the end results and would highly recommend greyHouse.

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.

About

Our company is operated very professionally and relates to our clients on a personal level which makes them feel much more comfortable when working with us. We also have fully detailed contracts, specifications and allowance worksheets for each project that keeps the client and builder connected and eases confusion and miscommunication. The greatest reward from being a builder is watching someone's dreams become reality. Sometimes from starting on a restaurant napkin, those simple sketches can turn into a warm and inviting home. Also, just as rewarding is seeing a very outdated space get a full makeover and update to where the homeowner can enjoy using and showing off their new space!

About

I have profound ability to diagnose any problem you could possibly have with your heating or airconditioning. I understand the importance of quality work in someone who enjoys fixing problems you may have. I have done this kind of work for some time now and there is nothing like walking away from a persons home knowing they will sleep comfortably at night with heat or air conditioning. I enjoy the challenges I face with older units that just refuse to work properly. I get enjoyment out of the hustle and bustle HVAC can sometimes require. I love to please people and do the best I can do to make people comfortable in their own homes while saving the consumer a pretty penny as well. I have said it before I have been in this field a long time and I enjoy showing the consumer compassion, understanding, and expertise in my field.

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.

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.

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.
