Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a good HVAC contractor in Houston?

The simplest way to locate Houston’s best HVAC or AC contractors is by searching for pros online. You can view the top-rated pros and compare their customer ratings and reviews. Don’t skip over any photos or images of the contractors’ past work. Review them carefully so you can get an idea of the contractors’ craftsmanship and skills.  

You should also research the pros’ background and qualifications. Do they have any certifications, licenses or other credentials? You can ask the pro this question, or you may be able to find this information online as well. For example, by visiting the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation website, you might be able to find out if the contractors have an air conditioning and refrigeration license.

Now, you’re finally ready to start gathering free estimates. Contact the top HVAC contractors in your area, and ask how much it will cost to install, repair or maintain your air conditioning unit or HVAC system. Choose the best pro for your needs based on the quotes they give you and the research you’ve conducted.

Do I need central air in Houston?

Houston is a hot and humid city, and central air may be necessary if you live there. Temperatures can reach well into the 90s (and even the 100s), and the humidity can be oppressive.

Households with very young children, elderly persons or people with certain medical conditions should strongly consider installing central air. Central air may also help prevent mold growth in homes by removing humidity from the air.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a HVAC technician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a safe consultation or appointment with an HVAC technician during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by comparing technicians in your area in an online search. Message or call technicians to ask whether they can perform a consultation over the phone or even over a video call. This way, they can assess the problem without increasing the risk of virus transmission by visiting your house. 

If it turns out the service is essential, you’ll need to follow CDC guidelines as well as local government guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.

How can I find out if an HVAC technician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Currently, governments on both the federal and local levels are updating guidelines on what qualifies as an essential service. To see whether an HVAC technician is considered an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic, check your city or state’s government website. 

For federal guidelines, check CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which identifies 16 critical infrastructure sectors during the crisis. But note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an HVAC technician when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a technician for an HVAC repair or installation project, practice current social distancing guidelines. This may require remaining outside while the technician works or ensuring the technician can work in a sectioned-off area or outbuilding.

Comply with social distancing guidelines while the technician is performing work. Do not make physical contact with technicians, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, sanitize all involved spaces and surface and pay using a digital platform instead of cash or a check.

Can I use digital payments to pay for central air conditioning services?

The use of digital payment platforms -- like Google Pay, PayPal, Zelle, Venmo and Square Cash -- is common among air conditioning technicians. Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic is improving the adoption of these platforms as a means of helping social distancing.

As you compare local air conditioning technicians online, contact them to see if they’ll accept digital payments. Also, discuss strategies for completing the job while complying with safety guidelines for reducing the risk of exposure.

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.

To ensure your central air is installed correctly, contact the best HVAC pros near you and start getting free estimates today.

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.

Contact the best HVAC contractors near you to learn more about the central air installation process and to start receiving free estimates.

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.

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.

David is a true professional. His communication skills are excellent. From the time that he quoted, he explained to me every single phase of new construction HVAC installation. My house passed every inspection on the first attempt every time. The inpector told me that the work that had been done in my house was flawless. David is currently working on two of my other projects at the moment. Would highly recommend JDS to anyone in need of HVAC services.
James L.
Domingo and his team were extremely responsive to the job and quickly diagnosed the problem and explained the work that need to be done in detail and quoted a fair price. I highly recommend for your HVAC needs.

Jonathan and his team have been doing Hvac and Electrical work for me. They show up on time and always do a great job. I will be using them much more in the future for my projects.

My HVAC system for my upstairs system stopped operating this Saturday. After I had another contractor diagnose the issue, it was clear that I was going to need a new HVAC system. I met with four different contractors and I chose JDS because David seemed as knowledgeable as the most expensive contractor but had better value. He spec’d out a Trane system and gave me all of the information to review. He installed the entire system on Tuesday. Everything is working great so far. I inspected the installation (not an expert) and it looks like he’s done a good job on everything. There were one or two minor issues and David sent someone from JDS to the house to take care of them right away. I will definitely be using JDS to change out my downstairs HVAC system when that one ultimately craps out.
Dale R.
Booked them about 12 hours in advance which is pretty much last minute. The tech arrived, reviewed my HVAC issue and even cleaned up after himself. Pleased and thankful. Very professional

11.4.18 (Sunday) EXCELLENT WORK/LOOK NO FURTHER/HIRE THESE FOLKS! We just moved into an older home and hired Billy to help us w our HVAC unit. We were anxious to get our system fixed and he showed up w his crew on a Sunday! He fixed our issues including: installing our NEST, getting it connected to the internet and installing it on our phones, unclogging an HVAC drain, completed some thermostat rewiring and lifted the heavy unit to balance it off. I will use this firm again! And, they did it for a fair price. Highly recommended!

Gary showed up exactly at the time he said he would. Even went out of his way to come by between appointments and didn't make me feel like I was a burden or that he was pressed for time. His prices aren't the cheapest but they are very very very fair for the level of expertise and workmanship that Hagen Mechanical Solutions provides. There are a lot of questionable, inexperienced folks in the HVAC world, but I can truly assure that Gary isn't one of them. Thanks again Gary for seeing me on such short notice and getting my problems solved! I now have an HVAC solution for all future problems (we all know there will be more, Texas heat will make sure of that)

I recently hired Jose to install two HVAC systems for an extensive remodel project. He is amazingly professional and still down to earth at the same time. I wanted a 'wow' factor and he gave me several options- one being the slot type air supply vents, which was perfect! One thing to remember, the leader/boss/estimator that you meet with to discuss the job is rarely the same person that completes the work. I am doubly impressed with Jose's company because of the team he has working for him. Elder is a genuinely skilled HVAC tech, is very communicative, and helped me solve a few issues in the home design I came across.
