AJ was unbelievably responsive. He responded to my inquiry within minutes and then guided me through hot water heater selection. He did the install later the same day. His quote was the price - not a nickel different. No surprises! The install went smoothly and was done efficiently and in a tidy manner. We will have AJ back for other plumbing and HVAC needs. And, he'll be my first call for other random home repair/improvement needs. Thanks AJ!

Rick did a kitchen floor for us and we could not be more pleased with the result. He worked by himself and finished in a timely manner at way less than the big box store contractors.....D.M.A.

Joe was prompt to contact me and meet me in person for an estimate. He was on time and provided a very fair price for the product and labor. I have no doubts this was the best option for me! I highly recommend H & M to anyone looking for HVAC services.

Jamel installed a new HVAC system in my condo in August and my system is working flawlessly. He went out his way to give me a second opinion when I was told I needed I new AC just to be certain he couldn't salvage it in any way. His price beat all competitors and the service and professionalism was top notch. He answered every question I had and put me at ease. Jamel and his assistant Justin exceeded my expectations in every way. I will definitely call Jamel for my future HVAC needs and recommend his services to others.

    Bockrath's crew installed an entirely new Trane HVAC system in our home. The job was finished in two and one half days and everything went well. The crew was efficient, worked well together and wasted no time. When they left the basement was clean and it looks much better than it did before they started. I am extremely particular and I could not have been more pleased. They deserve 5 stars +++.

    I am grateful to Eddie for his honesty and professionalism. My home is quite a distance for him, he came, called with an ETA, was punctual, and review my situation. He inspected, explained my insulation was adequate, and thought the problem may be HVAC, which it was and easily remedied by turning a baffle. Would have been easy for him to take advantage, but he did not. Although I can not rate his workmanship since he did not need to do any I can definitely rate his character, and it is remarkable. Thank you Eddie.

    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 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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
