I hired Jason for fixing my water heater and he did a great job with it (changed the heating elements and thermostats leaving the area clean). He did also help with a few questions I had about other improvements/maintenance to the house. He is professional, very courteous and was punctual to the time he promised on Thumbtack. Glad I chose him for the work. Highly recommended.

I am giving Varian an outstanding rating because he successfully resolved an difficult emergency situation despite some confusion in the process. He re-installed 2 very large heavy window air conditioners [24,000BTU and 18,000 BTU] I had in winter storage on a hot day when my regular installer defaulted. Somehow he was not aware at first that he would need a helper but while waiting he helped me with sealing up some other window frames in the apartment. He was cooperative and professional. He reinstalled the AC's in accordance with some of my particular requirements. The job cost more than I expected but was worth it. Next time I will make sure the service guy gets the job description from Thumbtack.

I had tried a couple of other places that are my "go-to" companies for heating and cooling work, and since they were not available and I couldn't seem to find anyone when my central AC stopped working (on this 86 degree day), I decided to post on Thumbtack. Action Air responded almost immediately and had Sam at my place in under 2 hours (on a weekend I might add). He was very professional and got everything up and working again in no time. Next time, it looks like I may have a new "go-to" company. High recommend these guys.

As an advanced do it yourselfer I normally do my own plumbing work. However, the years have taken their toll and that is no longer always possible and a job involving reconnecting 2 steam radiators to the main steam line has gone uncompleted for several years. I received an email invitation from Thumbtack to submit the job to their site. It was one of the better decisions of my life as one of the responding plumbers was William Morton. To make a long story short, William new exactly what had to be done and completed the job in a few hours with a level of expertise and professionalism rarely encountered these days. His work was well beyond my expectations and, except for the 2 now hot radiators, you would never know he was in my home. The work areas were left spotlessly clean and my heating system functioning perfectly. He was on time to the minute, completed the job with professionalism and did so at a reasonable price. I highly recommend William Morton anytime you need a plumber.

So glad we chose Roosevelt to install our new dishwasher. He was right on time and the price was right. Not only is he professional and knowledgeable, but also very personable. He took his time to make sure the job was done perfectly. I highly recommend Roosevelt for all your appliance and air conditioning needs.

Cye helped me install 2 ecobee smart thermostats with an existing wire that was not hooked up. Additionally, the night before, I had some issues with my boiler for hydronic heat not getting pressure, and Cye was able to help me figure out why and fixed it. He took his time explaining everything as he goes and taught me my way around my heating system. Not only do I have 2 working smart thermostats now, I also feel a lot more confident around my heating system now.

Very good experience. I needed to clean my air ducts for long time, because I have allergy for dust mites. I found this company through Yelp. Called them and get clear explanation how the process of Air Duct Cleaning will look like and booked appointment for my convenient time they were pretty flexible. They take huge amount of dust from ducts and cleaned my dryer vent for free. I can feel how much easier become to breath in my home. I like excellent advices how to keep Indoor Air Quality on highest level. Price is very affordable. Will recommend this company for my friends.

After going through three other HVAC companies over the course of many weeks, Alex was the only one who was quickly able to diagnose the problem, order the right parts, and finally resolve my heating and air conditioning issues. Will definitely hire again. Thanks so much Alex!

Mandell was great at fitting a new gas line in our house. They came on time and the contractor was so helpful and even went around the house and answered a few questions we had about various issues we were having with our new house. Being first time home owners, we don’t know how a lot of things work in the house and he helped us with some recommendations for fixes. Thank you Mandell!

HVAC heating system blew up during frigid temperature and I contacted Jason to get it fixed. Jason promptly contacted several suppliers and turns out the HVAC unit I had apparently only sold via the manufacturer and he was currently out of stock. What I appreciated about Jason was he was very responsive, communicative and professional during this time. He would keep me up to date about the progress during this time by regularly touching base with the manufacturer. Once the unit was delivered, Jason promptly made an appointment with me to come in and install the HVAC unit right away. Once again, I was impressed how professional he was leading up to the installation. He worked with my Condominium association to get them all the necessary paperwork prior to the install. On the date of the job, he arrived on time, worked with the front desk concierge to follow all the building rules to get the unit into my apartment. My heating unit is now working and I'm grateful to Jason for that. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Peter is a wonderful guy. Once we had a contact on this app. He came to us at the same date and fixed our restaurant's duct problem in a couple of the day. He is really reliable with very clean heart. He takes care of all our restaurant equipments, especially we had fixed our commercial fridge with some other guy but it wasn't repaired completely. Peter came to us and took the job done with free of charge. We are really impressed of his kind heart. Now we trust each other and we will work together for the future reference. He takes care of AC, refrigerator, duct system and many things more. If you need some help, ask Peter. He is very professional and also having good network. Very reliable, highly recommended.

I have an older AC unit in my home that had a few things wrong with it and of course it acted up on one of the hottest days of the year....Danny came right out to figure out how to get it all up and running so we wouldn't be sweltering. Ever since then I have been using him for my heating and cooling and there is not a single complaint I have. I just had my yearly AC service with him and I couldn't be happier with the price or service. Always professional, considerate and punctual. I suggest him to everyone I know, definitely 5 stars.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
