Logan was extremely professional in diagnosing the issue with our air conditioning, after several others had given us misinformation. Tristan ended up replacing our very old system at a very reasonable price and the crew were extremely quick and efficient at installing it. Tristan even went out of his way to make a follow up visit on Mothers Day to help us out with a faulty thermostat. We can't fault the standard of service and friendly professionalism in any way - we would certainly call on Logan / Tristan again and recommend them fully to others.

An air conditioner at a rental unit that I own quit working. Gomez came out the next morning first thing at 8 a.m. The diagnosis was not good. Both the heat pump and the compressor needed to be completely replaced. Gomez gave me an excellent price about half of what the big air conditioner companies charge. Gomez completed the work the same day to an excellent level of satisfaction. I will surely use Gomez for any air conditioning work but I ever need to do in the future.

I highly recommend Nexgen Home Services, a company that exemplifies customer service. For me, honesty is the most important trait when selecting a company to perform any type of work at your home. Nexgen was professional, on-time, and they diagnosed my air conditioning issue and fixed it the same day. I was provided with up front and fair pricing, and the whole time I knew that my interests were considered. I will now be using Nexgen for all of my future HVAC needs, and if you are reading this, you should too.

Jon was knowledgeable about plumbing. He was able to figure out the problem immediately. I wish I could have used him to replace the water heating but I have Total Protect and so it is covered under warranty. I will recommend him to others

Jim and his crew were great to work with and they never made me feel as though I was just a job. Jim was very knowledgeable. Their quote was reasonably priced, and I didn’t feel as though I was being up sold. Half my home was built back in the 1940’s and didn’t have duct work or a heating unit. The other portion of my home was built in early 2000’s. It had a unit however that unit was never designed to run all my heating and air-conditioning needs. Jim rose to the challenge and he was able to create an affordable solution. I am 100% satisfy with the work HVAC2U did to keep my family comfortable. I would absolutely use HVAC2U again.

I scheduled with Aire Serv after having a home inspection and needing to fix a temperature differential. I really appreciated that they were able to make their schedule fit with mine. Andrew was actually early for the appointment so there was no waiting around. He was extremely nice and professional. He looked at my system, answered my questions, and had my system cooling properly in no time for a reasonable price. He even provided pictures with my invoice to give to the home inspector. Would definitely do business with them again! Thanks Andrew! And thank you Aire Serv!

Excellent response, knowledge and price! This is the kind of customer service treatment every business should have! Although we are with Brennan’s, they were too busy to get to us within 24 hours (3-4 day wait). Hottest days of the year right now and Dynamic immediately came to our rescue! Within a couple hours of speaking with Josh, our AC was repaired! We will be working with Josh @ Dynamic Heating and Cooling for ALL of our HVAC needs from now on. Sorry Brennan’s.

I first used Jorge when my heat went out on a very cold night. He came first thing the next morning in a sleet storm. Very dependable. He just put in a new furnace and HVAC. Completely professional and will walk you through how everything works. I would recommend him to anyone.

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 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 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 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.
