Hvac reviews in Boston


It went well! We have had a long standing relationship with Coast Air since moving into our latest apartment in June of 2012. The first week we moved in, we released that the AC and Heat were hooked up wrong and anytime the AC turned on, the heat started to blow. After a month or so back and forth with the landlord, we called Coastal on our own dime and it was fixed in no time flat. Stellar service!
Fast forward to summer of 2014 when the AC stops working about 50% of the time. Back and forth again with the landlord, and ultimately decided to call Coastal once more. The first tech that came out was really young and seemed inexperienced tech(no idea his name, I wasn't home) who stated: "Everything is working fine, but it looks like it's freezing up." So Coastal put a freeze stop on it and called it day. (This was over a week or two). Surprised when that didn't fix it, I called Coastal back out and they sent a different tech (much more experienced and knowledgable) who diagnosed it as a faulty capacitor on the outside unit. They came back out free of charge to replace the capacitor, only charging us the parts - and nothing else!
This is the type of company you want to do business with!

My appointment was for 8:30am and i kid you not, my doorbell rang at 8:30am on the dot. One technician came out,

, and he was very friendly right off the bat. He came and took a look at the number of vents i have and their locations and said he would start with cleaning them first as it would take the longest and then head onto my roof to service my HVAC. I did work on my laptop while he went about removing the ducts one at a time and vacumming them, and he continued to apologize for how disruptive it must be for me to listen. He was very considerate and seemed to clean up after himself as well since removing each vent often caused some plaster or paint to flake off. That whole process took about 2 hours with 7 vents and he said he found no traces of water in the (yay!) but did see a lot of construction dust, which makes sense given that my place was new construction (at one point). I'm expecting i will be dusting a lot less often now that it's all out of my system.
Next he went up to my roof and tinkered with my HVAC, testing the heat and AC and cleaning coils. all in all, that probably took another 30-45 minutes and then he wrote up 2 very thorough work orders with all his findings (of which nothing was major or in need of repair) and was off on his way.

the technician, and Sunny the admin/scheduler were very pleasant to deal with and responsive. I would certainly use this company again, and hopefully not wait another 5 years to do it...i will add, i can't really comment on whether their prices are competative because i didn't shop around, but i did purchase a deal on Angie's List for the HVAC maintenance portion of the visit which seemed reasonably priced relative to other similar deals.

Our AC stopped working - it turned out that a small plate had been moved that turned off a switch. He found the problem quickly, told us how to fix it in the future and that was that. He could easily have told us that our very old AC had bit the dust. We appreciated his honesty and professionalism. We will definitely use them again in the future.

We always paid our oil bill. Then, in the middle of winter they sent out a random technician who put a lock on our tank in the middle of winter so that it could never be filled again leaving us with no options. Yes, the tank was old, but they did this in the middle of winter and provided no solution. We had no heat and needed to scramble to find a solution.

never reached out and never provided options. They simply cut off our heat. They then sent us termination fees and suddenly called constantly asking us when we would pay the termination fee. I explained many multiples of times, continuing to ask to speak to managers that they cancelled on us. We finally paid the bill to get them off our back but this company deserves a very poor rating. They will cut off your heat in the middle of winter and leave you with no options.

The control motor blew on my AC early this morning, and I called first thing Monday morning to schedule a service call. I was initially told someone could come later that afternoon, which was surprising given it was same day notice. Just a few minutes later,

showed up, smiles on their faces and told me they got there as fast they could. My experience only got better, as the two put on foot booties before entering my home.

Gulstrom was the technician who came. He was very professional (even wore booties over his shoes!) and was great about helping me think through the various options we should consider. Unfortunately the A/C system needs to be overhauled as it is quite old, but he was great about talking through things we need to consider before moving forward.
What can I say? Not great news, but not totally unexpected. I was very impressed with

gave me a price estimate and stuck to it. He explained each step and when we would be without hot water as I wanted the new boiler in the same location as the old one.
I was concerned that this process would leave oil, dirt and other permanent stains on our

grey carpet, but

was amazing!! He draped the entire work area with thick plastic and left our carpet in perfect condition. This was not easy since he and his helpers had to carry our oil tank out over the carpeted area.
In addition he wore clean socks every time he was obliged to enter the first or second floors. Each day he told us what to expect next and he alerted us when a particular task required loud bangs or drilling noise.
He is a perfectionist who completes each task with care. The system works beautifully.
This could have been an ordeal. Thanks to

is great - we have an old house with recurrent problems and they always come immediately when we call, day or night. Professional, courteous, fast, reliable. A+ company!

Everything seems to be working as it should, given all circumstances (age of system, scope of work, etc.) we've used them once before and like the idea of using the same company as long as we're satisfied, which we are.

I called them at 2:09, they came from

to Boston and completed the repairs by 3:19 - an hour and ten minutes! When scheduling the visit, they told me how to go online and save $30 on the service call too! All I needed was a little part, thank goodness. Great service. Really nice people.
