Jim arrived and handled my issue promptly and with care. I will have him back for service to my furnace and air conditioning unit. I’ve had sloppy work and false promises from others in the industry, but Bauer H&C is a class act!

Mickey of AJ Heating and Air Conditioning returned my request for help with my A/C almost immediately. He was able to come out the same day (a Saturday!) and identified the problem and fixed it. He came out the following day to give the condenser a good cleaning. His charges were very reasonable. I would highly recommend his service. Thanks Mickey!

Wernier has worked both with our heating and cooling needs. He has serviced our units for years. Our hot water furnace was replaced about 5 years ago. We love the more energy efficient unit. Our air conditioning unit is in the attic..not an easy place to work. Wernier replaced it two seasons ago and it works wonderfully. Wernier helped us find the best unit for our needs and rebates that made the home improvement manageable. Currently, Wernier is replacing some filmy baseboards that a contractor put in our kitchen. Quality work from a nice guy.

    Glenn R. is an excellent representative of your company. He was very patient and thorough in explaining my new air conditioning system to me. He makes an excellent impression and is very professional in his presentation of the material that a customer needs to understand.

    I needed a water heater replacement and sent out a request late at night. Within an hour so, Brandon replied and said he could come immediately the next day. He aided in the selection to determine best fit and solution, picked up a new water heater, installed quickly, and even removed the old heater to haul away. Very professional and responsive, did great work, and offers very affordable and competitive pricing. Would highly recommend.

    I contacted Superior hvac & Home Services to provide a quote on replacing our central air conditioning unit. The price was very fair and we gave Superior the job. Chris completed the project exactly as he said he would. He was very thorough and kept all work areas especially clean and neat. Our experience with using Chris was excellent and we highly recommend using Superior hvac & Home Services for any heating, air conditioning or electrical work. Bill & Pat from Chicora, PA

    Carl is a highly versatile, competent and dependable person who I highly recommend. He serviced my air conditioning system, repaired some plumbing issues, and installed outlets, switches and light fixtures for me. He arrived on time, removed his shoes before entering the house and charged me a reasonable fee. I found Carl to be a diligent, honest and pleasant person to work with. I will hire him again for future repair issues.

    Ryan came to the rescue with a brand new unit when we lost air conditioning on one of the hottest weeks of the year. Our go to guy was on vacation and I am always hesitant about using a stranger, but Ryan is the real deal. Found him on LinkedIn. He takes credit cards. As a landlord, he is definitely someone I’d like to give additional business to.

    Ryan showed up for an estimate at my earliest convenience. He texted me promptly with a price and an availability. He Went over in detail with my husband all available options and price points. Ryan was on time every morning and completed the work efficiently and neatly. He was extremely respectful of my home and time. We felt so comfortable going with this company, and we were not disappointed. Air-conditioning unit is top notch, installed perfectly to our preferences, and in the timeframe promised. I recommend them every opportunity I get.

    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. 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.

    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.
