Drew came over to our house the same day we contacted him, and met all of our needs plus some! He demonstrated professionalism from the moment he walked through our door, and was very personable. We enjoyed chatting with him as he wrote up our assessment. He performed an excellent and thorough evaluation of our air conditioning system and provided us with written confirmation of his findings before leaving. He was on time, professional, and very friendly. He also demonstrated honesty and offered a fair price and quote for the work needing to be completed. We are thankful we chose Drew for the job!

I was looking for a good HVAC company after moving into my new house. I wanted to be sure it was ready for our wonderful Maryland summers. I found MD heating and air services and gave them a call after trying several other places. With my work schedule it can be tough setting up appointments and no other company was able to work with me without some outrageous service fee. Me heat and air was willing to work with my schedule and didn't feel the need to rake me over the coals. The tech that came out was there when I was promised and very professional. I was happy to hear that my system was going to go and wasn't told I needed a bunch of bs that wasn't necessary. I am very happy and this will be my go to HVAC company from here on out.

Marco from Marco & Son has come to my house on numerous occasions to address issues with my heating and air conditioning units, as well as general maintenance. On all occasions, Marco was professional, pleasant, on time, and did a wonderful job at explaining the problem. There was at least one time when we needed him to come out quickly to address an air conditioning issue and he was able to fit us into his schedule and come out quickly. We definitely recommend Marco and will continue to use Marco & Son for all of our air conditioning and heating issues!

Mr. Vincente was prompt, professional and productive. I recently added two rooms to my home and he installed new duct work in order to add heating and air conditioning. In addition, Mr. Vincente cleaned my HVAC system, painted a few rooms, installed shelving and did some light landscaping. Mr. Vincente was receptive to my needs. He always had a smile on his face and he was willing to do anything that was requested of him. I will definitely be calling him for any future tasks that need to be taken care of.

Removed and Replaced Indoor and outdoor AC/Heat Pump units. Did a very nice job installing a platform in the attic for the indoor unit. Ran new line set, installed new thermostat and drain pan. Everything is neat and orderly. Warranty papers filled out quickly and submitted. All old materials and packaging removed. Would recommend to have him install your HVAC system.

Excellent experience with One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, one of Modern Mechanical's new companies. I called them on a particularly hot day this past summer and they were able to come straight out and fix my problem quickly and efficiently. No other HVAC company over the years has taken the time to explain the steps to me like Darren did. He involved me in the process from the moment he arrived. I can see why this company continually receives the "Best Of" awards in HVAC and Plumbing.

    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.
