Jeff is the consummate professional. Punctual, knowledgeable, courteous and attentive. Jeff listened to what we wanted and took the time to research what we were asking for to ensure the project was successful. Jeff was the only HVAC contractor (I had 6 bids to do the job) to investigate all facets of the project (electrical, duct work, etc...) to make sure current system could handle the upgraded AC unit (we went from a 3 ton to a 4 ton). Throughout the entire process Jeff was helpful and responsive. I would highly recommend Jeff and J&C AC to anyone who is looking to have quality work done.

I called Platinum IAQ Specialists to schedule a quote air duct cleaning. Later that evening our AC stopped cooling. I called back to have them check it out. Rene was there in an hour (about 10 pm). He fixed the problem and had us cooling in minutes! They are on my personal preferred contractor list!!!

Fred did an excellent job! He was reliable and honest about the work to replace my compressor, when another contractor from Thumbtack tried to scam me into paying 3X more because I'm a female. If you want trustworthy service call Fred!

Hamilton is what all contractors should be. He showed up on time, quoted all work before beginning, did exactly what he said and more, and left everything better than he found it. We will definitely use and recommend Sykes Electrical Service again!

Besides a few hiccups with the installation, I'm pleased with the work/product delivered. If getting a Trane Mini Split Indoor Unit, recommend registering the product at https://www.trane.com/residential/en/for-owners/warranty-and-registration.html; not sure what the difference between their Registered Limited Warranty or Base Limited Warranty but it wouldn't hurt to register it just in case.

These guys are what you would expect from a HVAC contractor but rarely receive from other service companies. I have used them twice now and they have not disappointed me. They showed up right on time, were extremely thorough and completely serviced my systems. They provided a detailed assessment on the condition of the systems and what service was necessary, if any! These guys were completely professional and I would hire them again and again. They have become my HVAC service provided of choice and I suggest you call them if you want a professional, responsive and high quality Heating and Air Conditioning company. I can't sing their praises too much I was that happy with them.

Arthur with Resurrection General Contractors was my point of contact for my roofing project. It's not often I write a review or share my thought but when you have a company that delivers on their promise 100% I would recommend them. Arthur was very professional and went out of his way to ensure my needs were met. My roof and soffits are straighter than they ever have been. In addition Arthur was able to provide competitive bids on replacement windows and I'm looking forward to having them replaced next week. Thanks again for all your help! Best regards, Dena

My experience of Bratton Services HVAC Contractor was perfect. You`d never know that a huge oil boiler and oil tank had been in my basement. The workers were courteous and kind.

      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.
