EES came out to clean our gutters but after looking at them, he told us our gutters didn't need to be cleaned (despite two other contractors recommending we needed cleaning). I appreciate his time and honesty. Jose was on time and friendly despite making an hour drive up to our house. I hope to use them in the future.

Our experience with MAC was amazing. Despite finding multiple issues with our HVAC during the ckean, Tamas was so helpful and thorough throughout the process. He took extra time to explain everything to me and my husband so we would know what was going on and what to look for in the future. He found mold on the insulation in the HVAC and in one of our bathroom exhaust fans (both of which were not found in our home inspection nor the HVAC service 1 month ago). He advised us what to do ourselves and even suggested some cost saving options. He cleaned out our dryer lint and the vent without charging additional fees. He sanitized the vents and entire system to ensure no remaining mold could grow. I have already recommended him to my brother and would absolutely have Tamas back out to our home for another ckean (though with the job he did, we won't need one anytime soon!). Absolutely, hire him - he was on time - even earlier than us! And did an amazing and entirely complete job, including and educating us throughout the process.

GUEMRI Appliance Repair responded to my request within the hour, which was a late Saturday afternoon. A technician showed up 10:30am Sunday, and my problem was repaired in less than an hour. He explained the two circumstances which caused the problem, how they most likely occurred (poor workmanship by previous contractors) and how he made additional provisions such that not only would the problem be fixed, that it should not occur in the future. The price was so reasonable I paid a little extra. I would definitely recommend this company, and will use them again in the future if the need arises.

I hired Troy Bakker to handle an HVAC job for a property I own in MD. He met with the tenant to assess the situation. We thought the thermostat went bad, but it was actually another part that required repair. He accurately diagnosed the situation, fixed it the same day, and charged me a fair price for the work. I'd definitely use him again.

This guys are awesome!! We moved to a our new home in Rockville and our contractor recommend us to do a complete ducks cleaning because the house is old and the ducks systems are dirty - and because we host everyone for the holiday I needed it done asap!

Then my friend gave me Leo number & he said he had an excellent experience with him, I called him he got my information - 2 days later (a day before the holiday) he was at my house with is helper and did a complete cleaning. Higley recommend!!

Val is the nicest. Came in, looked at what needed to be done, and gave me an estimate. I would say it was reasonable, as I have no idea how much mold remediation costs, but I can say "I was NOT crying all the way to the bank." The sub-contractors he had working with him were also very nice, friendly and personable. If you ever need to have mold removed, Val (and crew) is your guy.

In my opinion Kevin Creel is simply the contact you want to have for your HVAC issues. Tremendously impressed with him and his expertise. I request service on a Burnham boiler/furnace. I made contact with referral from Thumbtack. That gentleman started out well, explaining to me a CO problem that necessitated buying a brand new boiler. He also mentioned the part that was bad. He never suggested getting into the boiler to thoroughly clean it out of the rust and debris. Then when I was ready to purchase the part that he diagnosed as the issue he still attempted to move me to simply purchase a new boiler. I then called Mr. Creel at Climate Pro and explained my situation and that I did not want to get a new boiler. Mr. Creel explained what he could do and that he would come out. Mr. Creel looked at the boiler, explained to me in terms that I could understand and then proceeded to do what no other contractor was willing to do. He told me he believes that it would not be a problem to get the boiler up and running. The boiler had not been cleaned in many years. He explained to me that the cleaning he would do should take place every 3 or 4 years. Mr. Creel then removed the rusted top, exposing the inside of the boiler. He then explained to me that while the boiler is old and rusty it simply needs a thorough cleaning. He showed me how the rust was causing the CO problem in the area of the boiler and that the boiler needs to be cleaned out to allow the flames to go up in the boiler and the gas to go through the vent pipe. He brought in his tools and began to clean the entire inside of the boiler out and remove the rust and debris. He then put the boiler back together, he bled the radiators throughout the house, and then fired the boiler up and it works wonderfully! Mr. Creel then thoroughly cleaned up the area around the boiler! I could not be more impressed with his expertise, professionalism and honesty. I understand that contractors are in the business to make money but Mr. Creel's integrity does not allow him to take advantage of a customer who is at their wits end! Thank you Climate Pro! Thank you Kevin Creel! Continued business success and happy customers like me.

We initially came to thumbtack to find someone that could diagnose our problem with lack of airflow upstairs. He came to me one late evening and noticed immediately what was wrong with my system. He noticed that I needed a new furnace for my unit. I had an old 2 ton unit and he informed me that I needed a 4 ton energy efficient unit to get max airflow. He came in and installed my unit in like 3 hours when initially he said 6 to 8 hours. He was also reasonable with price. After the unit was installed, he noticed that two of my upstairs ducts were either separated or not there. I will get an estimate to that soon. Only problems were: -I usually deal with contractors who have contracts with customers. Ray only used invoices. -Communication could be excessive sometimes but he wanted to be in constant communication with changes. -The old furnace was left by my dumpster. I informed Ray that we don’t like added trash and equipment added to our dumpster area. But, the furnace was gone by the next morning. Overall, Ray is the right person for your AC needs!! And he has the experience to back it up! Will hire again!

Brian was absolutely amazing! My biggest concern when dealing with contractors is their honesty and integrity. Brian found what problem existed in the system and basically saved us thousands of dollars. I can honestly say if I had hired someone else they probably would've taken advantage of us and charged us more. I will recommend Brian to everyone!!

After posting a project for installation of an Aprilaire 2310 media filter and new duct work, I immediately recieved a response from Revolution Heating and Cooling with a very affordable estimate (more so than several local HVAC contractors I had reached out to before). From the very start, Curtis provided excellent service from proposal to the actual installation. He arrived on time and was very friendly as well as knowledgeable. Installation was quick despite challenges with the size of the furnace closet. Will definitely be using for future projects!

Raymond was very responsive, on time, and fixed the issue quickly and effectively, while not charging me an arm and a leg. In fact, he fixed something that another contractor had fixed using the wrong fuse. I plan to use him for future work on my system.

We recently had a mold issue at our residence, and being new home owners with a young child we were very concerned. We found Eugene through thumbtack and explained what our problem was. He was very professional and proposed what he thought would be a solution to the problem, not just a bandaid. On his advice we signed up for an energy audit. We went forward with Eugene from the information received on the energy audit and his initial thoughts. Not only did Eugene fix the problem but he also helped make our home much more energy efficient in the process. A few of the major things he facilitated was to fix insulation issues in our basement / attic, provide solutions and contractors to fix our HVAC system (Which had a 50% loss on the way upstairs), and to install an ERV system to provide fresh oxygen not only at the source, but through the entire house. Our HVAC is now running much better and our indoor air quality is superb. Eugene has helped provide a safe environment for my family to live and grow in. I would definitely recommend his expertise in building science to anyone. Eugene will help find the source of the issue and start there, rather than a quick patch job that will need to be redone in the future.

Millie' s was quick to respond d to my Thumb Tack inquiry, and gave me an upfront quote for the HVAC repair we needed. It was significantly lower than our regular HVAC company had quoted. The came out quickly after we agreed to have them do the work -- the very next day, and did the repair within an hour.

Mr. Bogans was one several contractors that responded to my AC repair request through Thumbtack on a Sunday morning. After he answered a few questions I had, we agreed on a time later that afternoon to service my AC unit. He arrived promptly at the appointed time, just as his Company name indicates. He performed a thorough system diagnosis and determined that the internal fan motor had failed. Because of my AC unit's brand, and being a Sunday afternoon, he had to order the replacement motor the following day. On Monday morning, he provided me with his final quote and soonest availability, and completed the job on Tuesday. I was satisfied and pleased with Mr. Bogans' professionalism, and customer service-driven focus throughout the entire process.

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.
