I have found the handy man of my dreams. Helio provide excellent service. I had him install kitchen cabinets and counter tops. I contacted the service Thurday evening, Friday we talked and made plans for Helio to come over Saturday morning to give me an estimate. He came Sunday afternoon and completed the work. I am super happy with the work he provided, and I already have plans for him to come back for more work.

We had Nick do some repair work to our bathroom, he was professional, and timely. He got all the work done quickly, explained everything he was doing to us and once he was done he cleaned everything up. I will definitely hire him again for any plumbing repair I might have in the future.

My boyfriend and I recently moved to the Rochester area from Albany and purchased a house in February. Not being from the area we did not know a good handyman so we thought we would try thumbtack and use advice from local referrals. We were looking to install a new composite sink and faucet in our kitchen and posted an add under plumbing, within a couple hours we had a response from Jeff. We purchased the sink and set up a time for him to come to our house and install it. It was a flawless process and the sink looks wonderful. Being new to our home we had several filters in the basement connected to our kitchen sink and he removed them for us, significantly increasing our water pressure. We have scheduled him to come back to our house to install a backsplash in our kitchen and I am sure his attention to detail will be evident. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone in the area.

From our first phone call with Ro, to our final inspection with Ken, this company delivered first class products and customer service. We are giving them a well deserved 5 star rating on the install team, too. Do yourself a favor and use Total Comfort for your heating, air conditioning & hot water tank needs. We are glad we did!!

Jesse is a true professional. He knows his trade very well and he provided great value in the design and construction of our HVAC system. He also did small repairs on other projects in a timely manner and was extremely efficient with his hours. His work is of the highest quality, he is a genuine person, and he is a strong moral character individual. I will recommend him to everyone.

Tom installed a dishwasher and performed plumbing and electrical work for me. He took more time than anticipated to troubleshoot the process and make sure it was done correctly. Highly recommended.

Tim was not 'the' least nor 'most' expensive. having said that, he and his workmanship were still a great value. We came across a few problems with the job (due to cupboards not being level from a prior installer!) but Tim was able to find a means to solve the problem so we could continue with the project just the way I wanted it to look. A pleasure to work with him, and we would use him again when we need home repair/improvement projects.

I've dealt with dozens of heating contractors. Simply Installs is probably the best of them. They came quickly, analyzed and solved the problem really fast and for a good price. And they left the place cleaner than they found it.

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.

Steve has done multiple home improvements & renovations for us. He efficiently and cost effectively installed a new energy saving furnace & hot water heater which both had energy rebates. Steve suggested options for ceramic tile flooring he installed for us along with ideas and details that gave the project a clean, updated look. Steve is a polite and accomodating professional with experience in many areas of renovation. We would highly recommend him

    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.

    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.

      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. 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.
