I needed a variety of home electrical jobs to be completed which Tony finished on time, as promised, and with a professional, cheerful attitude. His service was outstanding, reasonable priced, and well worth receiving a 5 Star recommendation to others needing residential electrical services.I will definitely employ his company in the future.

Jeff was an excellent help in replacing my residential HVAC system. He was patient in answering my questions, and his price was impressively lower than three other competitors' quotes. I highly recommend Jeff and JDM Services.

The compressor on our central air system went out. The home warranty company and their local contractor were dragging their feet and after 1-1/2 weeks we still didn't have our system repaired. Meanwhile the temperature and humidity were rising. I listed the project with thumbtack and was contacted by capital refrigeration within an hour. Their tech was onsite within 2 hours to confirm the problem. They ordered a new compressor, installed it yesterday and we slept in a nice, cool, air conditioned home. All within 48 hours of being contacted. We are very pleased with capital refrigeration.

By far the most responsive and professional HVAC contractor I've ever worked with. Beyond that, their craftsmanship and work quality is head and shoulders above others. They've replaced the unit at my home and have repaired the unit at my rental property. Great quality work, much lower overhead cost than the bigger outfits, and extremely professional. When you find a specialty contractor you can trust, you will stick with them. Your Community Heating and Air is my go-to, trusted guy for HVAC. Work with them and I expect you'll agree.

Chris responded quickly to my inquiry and I hired him to fix my A/C unit which was not working due to leak on capillary tube and low content of refrigerant in the system. Chris located the problem and fixed the leak and get the A/C unit working. Chris seemed very knowledgeable in HVAC and well experienced and did a very good job at a reasonable price. I will definitely hire him for my future projects related to HVAC units.

I had a small job - installation of a small window AC unit - other contractors and handymen would not take the time to do. GPS cam out the day after I contacted them and did great work at a good price.

Michael's HVAC repaired the leaking pipe to our tub. He came in a very short time of initial contact. He wore protective covers on his shoes, did a thorough job, and left the area super clean. In fact, I believe his repair is better than the original pipe. Michael's used copper pipe to strengthen the hot water connection instead of total plastic pipe as originally installed. His prices are reasonable. I would recommend him and use him again.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
