I've known Ted for about six years. He's always done an excellent job and saved us a lot of money on furnace and air conditioning repairs. I had a quote to replace my air conditioner by two different companies for $5000. After checking it out, Ted said that it only needed a new motor and to be balanced costing me only a fraction of what the other bids have been and it is still working just great after five years. He's done some work for my children as well, and they have been very pleased and referred him to their neighbors and friends. He really does great work and is very honest.

Boyd was honest and dependable. We had Larsen Heating and Air come out to repair our air conditioning and they overcharged us and didn't fix the problem after three different visits. Boyd came out to fix what Larsen would not do for us. He was fast and inexpensive. We will definitely refer him to anyone with HVAC problems. Thanks Boyd!

I can't say enough good about Greg Heyborne. He was quick to respond and give me a bid on a new air conditioning system. He made the entire experience enjoyable and I am more educated on how the system works. Greg is outstanding and I recommend him to everyone who mentions needing an air conditioning system. Thank you Greg for an outstanding experience.

All my life, I haven't​ had very good luck with things like cell phones, appliances, vacuums, & even vehicles... And because I'm a woman (and don't know any better) there have been more times than once, when I have been taken advantage of. This isn't always the case, and I really appreciate the times when I'm lucky enough to find someone who actually cares more about another human being, than money. I don't usually take the time to write reviews either, but I have never been treated with so much respect and kindness in my life, and wish the entire human population had the privilege of meeting this young man... If you need ANY sort of heating and air conditioning work done (and want to know, without a doubt) that you'll be given the best price & WORK possible. Then hire Peterson Heating & Cooling

Troy and his crew were fast, efficient, friendly and professional. Troy even took the time on a Sunday to come out to my home to give us an estimate so that we could get our A/C issue resolved ASAP - they came the following day and installed everything just as soon as his supplier was open for him to pick up supplies. With low overhead, he was able to pass some of his savings on to us in the form of the amount he charged us to install a new central air unit - definitely worth the cost. We would have him come help us out again if the need arose and will definitely be referring him to our family and friends.

We came home from our vacation in 100F and learned that our AC was a block of ice. I put a request for a HVAC service company and Dan's office sent a txt and followed up with a phone call within 10min. Dan came out to evaluate the situation the very next day, Saturday at 8 sharp, the time he said he would be at our house. Our unit was old and was not the right size for our house. He recommended a new HVAC system that he started the same afternoon throughout the night. He continued working on the install in person and brought his crew in to support the install. Any questions we had via txt or phone were replied to right away. Great communication between Dan and my husband and I. Would highly recommend Connectionz Plumbin Heating & Air.

Wow! What a great experience! H&H replaced my swampcooler with Central Air, and capped off the hole with a gorgeous skylight. What a difference! The work itself was great, the staff was friendly and professional, and I was not charged until the work was done and I was satisfied.

They were the only ones that would come out and look at my furnace right away. They did a good job installing my furnace and even though they couldn't do it the next day they lent me a heater. They also stuck by their estimate.

    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.
