Through the years, I have engaged numerous contractors to do a variety of projects: plumbing, electrical, framing, roofing, flooring, windows, HVAC, etc. I have become completely familiar with disappointment. Armando actually hit his schedule right on! Any questions were resolved immediately. He was knowledgeable, honest, dependable, and really easy to work with. His work ethic is undeniable. I am so thrilled with the work he have done. I can't say enough good things about this company: more importantly about Armando. What a pleasure to work with him! I would not hesitate to recommend Armando to anyone! If you are looking for a great contractor, If you want high quality construction done the right way, the first time: look no further!! The result was the most professional project I have ever witnessed among the 40+ contractors.

Sean was extremely professional and willing to go the extra mile. They are also affordable as well and the fact that they're a small team gives them a competitive advantage on price versus the larger companies. I've worked with various contractors who were outright horrible at keeping us in the loop but Sean made the process smooth and transparent not only with phone calls, txt messages, emails, but also photos. I will hire him for any future work. A++ service

Watkins Heating and Air did a great job in redoing a previous poor installation job on my HVAC unit. Great work and very reasonable prices also. I would highly recommend for your HVAC needs.

Recently I have had the misfortune of having to deal with lots of contractors and on almost all the jobs they are late or some don't even show. I was so pleasantly surprised when Najim showed up 3 minutes before he promised and got to work quickly and communicated clearly what he was going to do. I am very happy with the service I received for my AC not working properly. I would highly recommend for prompt and professional service.

Iggy replaced 2.5 ton heat pump and coil. Our 12 year old Trane had coil leak and after a few years of adding refrigerant we decided to replace. We had contractors come and asked for proposals. We had several quotes to replace whole system including gas furnace claiming they were paired. Several others told us the Trane furnace was in good shape and should last another 10 years and all we needed was the cooling coil and heat pump. This honesty by some contractors saved us ~$3000. Iggy was one of the honest brokers and just proved to be the most competitive on the coil and heat pump replacement. He offered a Lennox brand which I believed to be higher quality than the next closest competitor. Unit had a 10 year compressor warranty and a higher SEER rating than the other. I went with Iggy for better product and great price. He removed old coil, replaced my condensate drip pan, and set new outdoor unit. He even provided a thermostat upgrade to a programmable control. He came when he said and did what he said, and unit works great. We would absolutely recommend Iggy for residential HVAC.

I hired Peak City to finish a basement room. Though it was just one room, it was fairly extensive as code required the addition of a window (which required cutting into a brick wall/engineering/sign off etc). In addition to the window, Paul anticipated and shared with me everything the town was going to require before he even quoted the job. Yes, I had lower bids but no one else mentioned up front the extra costs that would be incurred. (Which obviously would've resulted in higher costs than originally bid.) The total scope of work involved extending the HVAC, moving plumbing, adding electrical, framing out of a closet, drywall install/finishing, the addition of a soffit, hardwood installation (which included removing a threshold and weaving the new hardwoods into the existing hardwoods,which was done seamlessly) painting and trim. I was also impressed with the fact that he took it upon himself to match the existing interior doors/trim etc. (That may sound like a no brainer but I've done many homes/projects over the years and you'd be surprised!!) He did his best to minimize dust and the work area was cleaned up daily (again something one would expect, but doesn't necessarily happen without asking!). He had a handful of trades in who did the same. He finished on time and stayed within the agreed budget with no surprises! Highly recommended!

About

For over 25 years, I have been designing and constructing homes and small commercial buildings, such as offices, restaurants, and churches as well as analyzing real estate projects for feasibility studies. I have found over those years that I most enjoy working with the homeowner in designing their new home or their addition project. I work with the homeowner not only in the design but cost analysis of their project as well as helping them find quality builders that fit the homeowners’ needs. I offer home plans on the internet as well as custom designing homes for the homeowner or builder. As a compliment to my residential design business, I keep up my contractor’s license and construction knowledge to better serve my homeowners and builders. From time to time, I will construct additions and homes for homeowners or speculative ventures. This effort helps me keep up with construction methods, new products, and refines my plan detail and design.

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.
