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.

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.

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!

Mike's service, and overall efficiency was very good. His price was fair to air condition my entire home using 6 Daikin units with 2 outdoor units as well. We have the large unit to cool my livingroom, dining room, kitchen and foyer working well and a hiccup affecting my 3 upstairs bedrooms should be resolved with his followup call later this week. He returns my calls if I have a question promptly. I plan on having him do other jobs for me, if he can and when he can. He is a knowledgeable contractor that I have known since my son was in high school with him. I would recommend him. RCR

A few weeks ago, on what at the time was the "coldest day of the year" our furnace wouldn't engage; as it had lost all communication with our thermostat. As my wife and I recently moved to the area, we were unsure of whom to call.... I was able to reach Joe from Olsen Heating & Cooling ((862)254-0894) around 6PM on a Friday evening and he was at our house WITHIN THE HOUR. Joe was courteous (he even put booties on before coming in our house to keep our rugs clean), very knowledgeable, and great to work with. In about 80 minutes time, Joe not only had our system back online but also performed an overdue annual maintenance on our furnace; all for a very fair/reasonable price. It's nice knowing that their are great local companies (Sand Shore Dr.) that can help when you need them most. Strongly recommended!

I have had 6 companies come and look at my Hvac and water heaters. Airstream is the best company that I have worked with. They are honest and are reasonable in price. This was the best water heater and HVAC service ever!!!

We recently had our air ducts cleaned in our house. They honored the price that they quoted on the phone, which was great in my opinion. Many times before this hasn't been the case with other companies that we've dealt with before. The workers were on time, very professional and did a wonderful job on our air ducts. We will definitely use them again, I highly recommend!!

I was very pleased with how fast everything was done! Got my air working within the week and didn’t put a dent in my wallet! Would recommend to anyone looking for a fair price and fast!

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.
