Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the most common type of heating system?

The most common type of home heating system is a forced-air heating and cooling system. This type of heater involves a furnace, which is commonly powered by natural gas, forcing air through a series of ducts that distribute the hot air through different rooms in a house. Furnaces can run on other types of fuel, including electricity, propane and oil. This type of heating system is quite popular because it doubles as a path for air conditioning in the summer.

Why is my air conditioner leaking water?

An air conditioner leaking inside the house is a common problem. It could indicate that the air filter is dirty. Or, one of the following may be the culprit:

  • Clogged condensate drain line
  • Leaky, damaged, cracked or rusted drain pan
  • Dirty or broken coils
  • Frozen evaporator coils
  • Broken condensate pump
  • Not enough refrigerant
  • Disconnected drain line

If your AC is leaking, contact a repair service to find out what the problem is — and how much it will cost to fix it.

What is the most efficient heating system for a house?

Geothermal heating tends to be the most efficient way to heat a house when compared to traditional HVAC systems, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Geothermal heat pumps (also called ground-source heat pumps) transfer energy to and from the ground to supply heat, cool air and hot water.

Note that one of the most important ways to boost efficiency, save electricity and lower your heating bills is to make sure your house is weather-tight and well-insulated.

How much does it cost to install a heating system?

The cost of a heating system depends largely on the type and size of the heating system. For example:

Can I install central air myself?

While you may be able to do some preparation work for central air installation, you should hire a licensed contractor to complete the project and handle the air conditioning refrigerants. 

Also, unless you have the proper credentials, you risk making common mistakes when installing central air. This may include installing the wrong-size furnace, improperly installing ductwork and exhaust systems, and incorrectly managing drainage.

Does central air add value to a home?

A central air unit or HVAC system may add value to your home. Or, if you’re in the process of selling your home, it may help you close a sale.

The Remodeling Impact report found that 20% of realtors have suggested that home sellers replace their HVAC before attempting to sell their homes, and 7% said this project did help close a sale. 

Talk with an expert to figure out if adding an HVAC system is a good idea for your home. And contact the best HVAC pros near you to get free estimates so you’ll know how much this project will cost you.

Is it worth it to install central air?

Depending on where you live, it might be worth it to install central air. Central air makes your house comfortable on hot summer days. And although it’s hard to predict if adding central air will increase your home’s value, prospective homebuyers will certainly notice if it’s missing.

Another advantage of central air is that it can help dehumidify your home. Not only will it make your home more comfortable and enjoyable, but it can also  help prevent mold from growing or spreading.

Do HVAC technicians offer remote or virtual services?

Because HVAC technicians need to be physically present to do their work, they have not conventionally offered remote or virtual services. However, with the importance of social distancing due to COVID-19, the need for remote capabilities is greater than ever. If you come across a profile that states the HVAC technician or AC professional is offering remote services, message the pro to find out what those services include.

Consult with your technician to see if the technician will be able to perform a video call consultation. You can find local technicians near you by searching online.

Does an HVAC technician need to enter my home?

Because most HVAC systems are located in the home, it’s likely that an HVAC technician would need to enter yours when working on the projects. However, there might be exceptions. Some HVAC systems are located in garages or in areas of the house that are sectioned off. During the consultation, ask your technician if they'll need to enter your home.

When you contact local technicians, ask if they’ll perform a video call in place of a traditional consultation. Be sure to send all materials like photos and documents digitally, and comply with all relevant guidelines.

How long does it take to install a new heating system?

A new heating system generally takes a few days to install. Jobs that require new ductwork will take more time. And switching to a different type of heat fuel — propane, natural gas, oil or electricity — may require longer installation times as well, as they could require routing piping, regulators and other adjustments to your home.

Central air conditioner on the roof was not working. They showed up the same day as promised. Fixed the problem and the price was reasonable, particularly when considering how HVAC contractors can be huge rip-offs

Wil is a uniquely skilled and multi-talented HVAC and construction professional. From the moment I met Wil during the project scoping and bidding process, he inspired great confidence of his deep HVAC technical knowledge and broad construction experience. He unquestionably provided the soundest advice and proposal for the routing of the piping, communication/electrical lines and drainage tubing from/to Mitsubishi Outside Condensers to/from 6 Interior Wall-Mounted Air-Handlers. In terms of project execution, Wil's background as a general building contractor was a great asset throughout the project. He worked seamlessly with and provided guidance to the other sub-contractors involved (e.g., electricians, carpenter). As a family, we enjoyed having Wil work in our home throughout the project. We have two active young sons who often run around when back from school and Wil always treated them as if they were family and looked out for their safety when anywhere near the construction/installation areas. This intricate project in a floor-through Manhattan apartment was delivered two days ahead of schedule without a glitch! The impact to walls and ceilings was minimal (even before re-painting where necessary), which is simply amazing for a project that involved significant piping, wiring, wall-mounting, etc. The attractive wall-mounted units were placed meticulously in the most ideal spot of each room. The outside units and piping were also ideally placed and enclosed (where applicable). Most importantly, the HVAC system works flawlessly, is user friendly/intuitive, and even aesthetically pleasing! I highly recommend Wil for his reliability, attentiveness, integrity, and overall knowledge/ experience. He is best in class. No question.

Slava helped me out with inspection, repair, and maintenance of my old split AC in NYC. Due to a big gut renovation at my apartment, I was instructed by my contractor that the units were quite old and should be replaced. They also told me that because my units were custom made and old technology, the new ones will be tricky to get and obviously will cost a fortune. I had already asked many other engineers/HVAC guys to see and give an estimate. I luckily came across Slava who was quite responsive and came by to inspect the unit. In his first trip, he inspected the condenser and found it to be in good condition and suggested that replacing will be silly and wasteful. He ran detailed analysis using his measurement machine to check the cooling, and other metrics. He found the unit to be not cooling effectively and clogging up due to lack of Freon. He had to make another trip to replace Freon. He ran more measurement to make sure that the unit was now working perfectly. It wasn't due to clogging of outside vents on my condenser. For that, even in heavy rain he went outside to my neighbors building and climbed fire escape 4 floors to check the outside vents. He found them to be really clogged (pics attached) so he came back and with my approval chemically washed them by climbing again. The tests after that were perfect. He also inspected the air handler and found it to be in good condition. He recommended ongoing maintenance and other relevant suggestions to make sure that it is a smoother process in future. I feel lucky to have found Slava. He was a pleasure to work with, knows his work better than many in the industry, is quite industrious, takes pride in his work and just the right guy you want to be on your side. He will be my guy in future to fix any issues with my AC unit. Last but not the least, he was by far the most reasonable guy I came across who did the work perfectly and in time for me. I have him a 25% tip which still put me way below what others were charging me. Highly recommended!!!!!
