Sam was fantastic in helping to fix my central Air Conditioning. He came for three consecutive nights and called every morning to make sure things were working. Not only very dedicated but extremely personable. His excellent level of service has earned Action Air a permanent spot on my phone list. Thanks!!!

Joseph helped us with the installation of two through the wall air conditioning/heating units. He was very professional, knowledgeable, reliable and punctual. The job resulted in some unexpected challenges but he was pleasant throughout the process and did not even try to charge more. Honest, sincere people are hard to come by and I really appreciate all the help Joseph has provided us. We will absolutely continue to use his services and recommend him without hesitation!

Tony was very methodical in his troubleshooting of the problem I had with my air-conditioning unit. And when he saw the problem was a simple problem that I could fix myself, he gave me the instructions and I was able to fix it. He could have easily charged me for a second visit to solve the problem but he didn't. I will definitely use his services again. In fact, he will be coming soon to conduct maintenance on my outside unit.

Rey at ep210 has done quite a bit of work for us. He replaced one of our central air conditioning units and installed a new natural gas burner as a replacement to our old oil unit (also included removing two large oil tanks from the basement). I can't say enough good things about the quality of work on both jobs. He did what he said he was going to do in the time he said he would do it, at a very competitive price. We've had no problem with either our heating or cooling systems which we have him maintain during the year: Spring start up for the AC and Fall tune-up for the heating. Ep210 is really an excellent company and Rey is a terrific guy to work with.

“All in One Air Comfort Solutions” deserves more than 5 stars!!! I was calling different HVAC companies to get an estimate for installing air conditioning in my home, with-out any luck; I asked a co-worker if he knew anyone in this line of business, and he highly recommended Wil at “All in One Air Comfort Solutions”; they were wonderful, warm, friendly and very personable. Not to mention that their price was beyond reasonable. They arranged to have the air conditioning installed with-in a few days; they not only took care of business in a timely manner but very importantly with very little disruption to my home and family. By the end of 2-days, I had air conditioning in my home and we couldn’t be happier. I would definitely-recommend “All in One Air Comfort Solutions” to any of my friends, family and to anyone who is looking for a reliable company to install or repair their HVAC. All in One Air Comfort Solutions/Wil was absolutely-wonderful!!! If you need HVAC installed or repaired - give them a call, you will be glad you did :-)

Highly recommend Them and the people that work for them (and that includes the people in the office). First class company!!

We installed a heating, cooling system and had insulation installed in the attic. It was an extensive project, and Building Sciences LLC. they kept us informed every step of the way. We got a 10-year 0% interest loan, which was more then other contractors were offering (24 months only). We also got $5,000 worth of weatherizarion and insulation paid for by the NJ Clean Energy program. Building Sciences is a participating contractor. Others were not. The install crews were clean and professional and cleaned up after themselves. So we are really pleased we did it this way. It was more effort, but so worth it. We highly recommend Building Sciences!!!!

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.
