Ken was so knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help service my hot water heater and furnace. The response time was super quick. He’s flexible. The prices are more than fair and the work is superior. I’d recommend Total Comfort to anyone and will use them exclusively moving forward!

Jesse was super responsive and was able to come out and fix my heating system the same day I called him. He did a great job troubleshooting my heating system and determining what was causing the problem, I will definitely call Fire & Ice next time I have any HVAC issues.

They were: (1) extremely quick in responding to my request for replacing my hot water heater; (2) they were able to schedule a time to come and replace my hot water heater immediately for the next day at 10:00 AM (after I put my request on-line at 9:00 PM). They prioritized my needs and accommodated me by being able to reschedule another job they had (at the 10:00 AM slot) for a different day. (3) They were prompt and on time, and were able to complete the job in 1 hour (which normally takes 1-2 hours). (4) Out of the 3 quotes I received, they provided the best price for the same service. I would definitely use them for other heating/ventilation and air conditioning needs I may have and I would absolutely recommend them!

I have never been happier with a professional heating and cooling expert. He was the utmost kind and caring gentlemen I have meet in the business. He did not recommend anything that did not need to be done. I would hire him 1000'S times again. Thank you for cleaning my furnace which since 1997 was maybe done a couple of times. I will see you in the spring for the central air.

I hired Precision to come and check out my furnace and air conditioning system. I thought that my furnace would have to be replaced because it was not working properly. I had already had 2 companies come over and not only did they charge me over $100 just for showing up, both told me that I would need to replace both my furnace and air conditioning because they were beyond repair. My friend suggested I try R.J. because he had used him and he seemed really knowledgeable and fair. I called him and within 2 days he came over, checked both furnace and air and fixed my furnace for barely nothing since it was a small issue. He told me that it did not have to be replaced and was in good shape, even though I had failed to maintain and have it checked like I should have. I really appreciate that he was not trying to sell me a costly purchase that I didn't need. I have referred him to several co-workers and I'm sure they will have the great experience that I did. I will continue to use them for my maintenance checks and when the time comes, my installation.

    No doubt these guys get 5 stars from me!!!!! Saved us a lot of money and did all the work on time and on budget. Example.. When they were installing the new furnace Eric told me it would be a good idea to put the coil in the furnace that we would need when we had them come back to do the AC. Only a few hundred dollars to do at the furnace install versus a lot to install after the fact. The high efficiency furnace is amazing! I have hot air blowing out of vents that I felt nothing from with the old furnace. Saving on the RGE bill big time as well. Very knowledgeable and professional. My oldest Son just bought his first house and they will be doing his AC install as well. He didn't think he could afford it until he got the estimate from Eric! Never been more impressed with any other contractor I have used in my 61 years. Thanks guys!!!

    John installed a furnace and central air for me in September 2015. He came to our house and gave us a quote he showed us what he would be doing and what needed fixing. The day he came back to install it he showed up in the morning and worked all day. When the job was done he cleaned up the area and showed us what we needed to do for maintenance. He did a nice job and the work looked great. When he gave me the bill it was the same price quoted no hidden charges. John was very polite and professional. I would highly recommend him and I refer him to all my friends.

    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.

    How much will it cost me to replace my furnace?

    The national average for furnace replacement is between $1,800 and $2,500. The cost can range dramatically higher depending on the model of furnace you select, any repair work you require, your location and the cost of installation. Furnace installation costs can be more than the furnace itself due to the cost of doing business and the expertise needed to install the HVAC equipment. Installing a new furnace generally requires technical know-how and the proper tools and licensing. It’s best to hire a pro and budget for furnace installation rather than risk potentially unsafe DIY installation. This will ensure your home’s safety. Check to see if your HVAC contractor has the proper licensing to do the job. If you need duct repair or replacement, expect to pay more for your furnace installation costs. The price for duct repair could be an hourly rate ranging on average anywhere from $85 to $150 per hour, with additional costs for parts.

    How much does it cost to replace a gas furnace?

    The cost to replace your gas furnace will vary based on the type and size of furnace you select, labor and installation costs, and any repairs your HVAC system may need. Nationally, average HVAC prices for a heating specialist range between $1,800 and $2,500. It’s important to select the right size gas furnace for your heating needs. A furnace that’s too small won’t heat your house properly, while a furnace that’s too large will run inefficiently, cycling on and off and likely breaking down sooner. HVAC specialists calculate your exact heat needs by measuring your home and incorporating variables such as the regional climate and your home’s level of insulation. Retail pricing for gas furnaces can range from $650 up to $3,000 and more. The higher the AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of the furnace, the more efficient it is at turning fuel into heat and the lower your carbon footprint and utility bill will be. HVAC installation costs are often based on an hourly rate and can range from under $50 to over $100 per hour, depending on the company and the furnace being installed. Higher-end furnaces cost more to install because they require added labor and expertise. For a typical installation, it might take two HVAC installation pros one day or less to remove your old furnace and replace it with a new one.

    How much does it cost to have your furnace cleaned?

    To keep your furnace in good working order it’s important to have it regularly cleaned. The national average furnace cleaning cost ranges from $60 to $80, though prices can vary greatly based on where you live in the country and what your furnace maintenance includes. An HVAC company may have different rates for different levels of furnace maintenance. For example,one company may offer general furnace maintenance for $79 and advanced maintenance for $138. Another company may offer a 38-point maintenance check for $89 and a 64-point maintenance check for $178. According to, a standard furnace cleaning and maintenance visit can include:

    • Checking the vent connection pipe and chimney
    • Checking the physical integrity of the heat exchanger
    • Adjusting the controls to provide optimum air temperatures
    • Checking the combustion chamber for cracks
    • Testing for carbon monoxide (CO)
    • Adjusting the blower control and supply-air temperature
    • Cleaning and oiling the blower
    • Removing soot and corrosion from the furnace
    • Checking the fuel input and flame characteristics
    • Sealing the connections between the furnace and the main ducts

    How much will it cost me to replace my air conditioner?

    If your AC system is in need of replacement, the national average air conditioner installation costs range from $2,930 to $3,670. Costs can vary greatly depending on whether you are replacing a wall or window unit or a central air system. A central air system is connected to ductwork that runs throughout your house and pumps cooled air into your various rooms via vents and registers. A central air conditioning system is far more costly than wall or window units. Selecting a central AC system that has a high seasonal energy-efficiency ratio (SEER) will likely lower both your carbon footprint and your utility bill. The type of AC system you select, where you live in the country, and the regional costs of HVAC work, duct removal and replacement, and ductwork repairs that are needed are some of the main factors that affect the cost of new air conditioner installation. Here are some examples of average costs for installing forced-air systems.

    • Install Lennox 16 SEER single-stage AC unit: $5,743
      • Removing and disposing of the old furnace, moving and reconnecting the water heater, and installing a 3.5-ton gas furnace. The job took 18 hours of labor.
    • Installation of a new 14 SEER single-range cooling system: $4,000-$6,000
    • Installation of a new 16 SEER two-range cooling system: $6,000-$8,000
    • Installation of a new 20 SEER variable capacity cooling system: $8,000-$12,000
