"It went well! They walked my partner through what they were doing and were polite and professional. We have lived in our house for four years, seldom use the AC" and have never had it checked. It's good to know everything is in working order. We had
out to check on our furnace a couple years ago and were very happy. They will be our go-to guys for any heating and cooling things that come up and checkups.

"I was very happy with the work. The filter for our air cleaner needed some parts replaced, and
took care of getting the parts and installing" them in the air cleaner very quickly. I really appreciate the responsiveness and will use them again.

Hiring an HVAC service

The awkward-to-pronounce acronym stands for "heating, ventilation and air conditioning" which in many respects are completely different processes.

Before you start a renovation project, ask yourself, "Do I need a permit for this?" In Chicago, the answer is probably yes.

what should you pay.  You pay what you can afford.  1100sqft unit requires a min. of a two ton unit.  prices range from 2100-2900 depending upon the seers of the system.  13 seer is the min. the law requires  and for your situation with 1100 sqft.  do not worry about the seers as long as it is to code.  the bigger the house the more seers for economy.  1100 sqft is at the border line for a two ton system.  It is more important to have your new system balance, there is where you get the economy on your electric bill and gas.  Bryant, lenox, ruud and carrier are the brands you should stay with.All have the same basic factory warrantee and will last you longer than you expect as long as you maintain it with regular check ups twice a year once in the spring and then in the fall.

The only thing of importance, is the hvac professional you choose to use. Alot of manufacturer's pieces are built relatively the same, and will last about the same amount of time. The thing that matters most is what you can not compare between companies, and that is the installation. Purchasing a system is not like purchasing a car, where no matter where you buy it, they are all the same. Each installation is different, and usually what you are paying for is the level of expertise, and quality of the installation, the company who will actual give you the warranty, and the comfort that you will receive. Manufacturers warranties disappear every day. They always have a loophole where they can get out of paying, but your local dealer wants to keep you happy for future work, and to protect his reputation in the communiy. Look up 4 year old Nordyne and Goodman warranty problems. Choose the HVAC professional first. It will cost you the least in the long run. I have had to totally redo plenty of installations that were just performed because of an uncomfortable customer, and a system that keeps breaking down. The equipment is only as good as it's installation, and over 70% are not installed correctly.
?
Yes Jupiter. It depends on the severity of the situation, is the mold encapsulated in the insulation. If yes, than replace [insulation] it with new. Is it on the casing of the heater? If yes, clean it with a mold neutralizing metal cleaner. It's not a matter of finding something or someone to clean or address the existing mold. It's a matter of finding a contractor to rectify what is causing the mold grow. It's coming from excessive moisture in the air-handler unit. I can say with 100% surety you’re dealing with poor airflow and/or incorrect equipment sizing! Either issue will cause excessive icing of the evaporator coil, which leads to excessive condensate water in the system. The condensate will eventually overflow the drain pan leaving stagnant water in the air-handler housing, which leads to mold growth. I would not let any contractor do any kind of temporary repair, add any device like a UV light or air-cleaning product until the aforementioned is corrected. I talk a lot about this in my videos and on my website. It is the result of improper system design from unqualified contractors. There is a reason why some guys cost more than others, and this is one reason why!

I'd rate them equal,or close,as with several other brands. I'd be more concerned about the difference in installation and service down the road. Difficult to determine the difference ,but asking for detailed info about their installation,may convince you to choose one over the other.

The Dept. of Energy states that poor installations can cause a 30% efficiency loss! Plus with Gas their are saftey issues,venting properly etc.,and of couse the need for a "low Level" Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
?
I think maybe you are confusing SEER, which is an efficiency-related rating (higher SEER means more effective use of the electric power used to compress the gas), and TONS rating, which is a measure of the total cooling power of the system. (Tons used to mean how many tons per hour of ice was used in evaporative cooling building systems - a Refrigeration or Cooling Ton equals 12,000 Btu/Hour of energy exchange. A BTU, which is another antique measure but still used, is the energy needed to change the temperature of a pound of water one degree fahrenheit. Unfortunately, because of varying humidity and evaporation, this is not readily related to house air heating or cooling without a lot of assumptions and some computations. Relating this to today's world - the Manuals BayAreaAc referred to account for all these energy conversions and determine an estimated cooling (or heating) requirement for your specific house. The type of construction, solar exposure, general climatic conditions such as average temperatures, humidity, and hottest and coldest normal ambient temperatures and desired inside temperture are all taken into account in the more sophisticated versions of the analysis, so there is no "standard", though a rough old rule of thumb was about 1 ton of cooling per 500SF of house. Obviously, this was a WAG only because it did not account for insulation, type of roofing, whether you live in Alaska or Miami, etc. The ACCA manuals do a very simplified form of evaluation to arrive at a "design", which generally will be adequate. OF course, highly precise calculations are not really needed because A/C units generally come in even ton ratings - so if you are at say 2.6 ton requirement you will be getting a 3-ton unit anyway. SEER ratings are not a direct measure of efficiency, but the relative difference between ratings gives you good idea of the unit's relative efficency in using electricity - so a 16 SEER should be about 19% more efficient (so roughly comparable lower electricity bill) than a comparably sized 13 SEER unit. 13 SEER is the lowest efficiency currently allowed to be built for general use, 19 SEER is about the highest efficiency made by pretty much all manufacturers, and about 25 SEER is the highest rated though very pricey shelf-item units, though special construction custom units can reach about 30 SEER. Note however, like any government sponsored rating, much of it is hooey when you get down to it - for instance, SEER ratings are figured based on 80 degree inside air temp and 82 degrees outside, when that is far from the normal case of mid to low seventies inside and high eighties or above outdoors. This makes the absolute SEER rating meaningless, but relative numbers still have meaning in comparing units. Note these efficiency ratings are for conventional air conditoners and heat pumps working in ambient air conditions. Ground sourced Geothermal or lake/river exchange cooling units, though initially more expensive in most cases, can greatly exceed the air-exchange unit efficiencies because they are exchanging heat with cold natural water rather than with a high-temperature outside air, and instead of continually compressing a gas are just circulating cold water. I worked on one geothermal cooling project which had almost infinite efficiency, which of course makes no sense - but the only power was for sensors and a control valve as the water flow was single-pass under gravity flow, so no power was used to circulate the water.
?
Just purchased a dual voltage capacitor at Home Depot for $8.34 and it literally takes 5 minutes to remove and replace. Make sure to shut the power (pull the fuse), short ALL connection points on the capacitor and do it yourself. If anyone tries to charge you more than $150 total (for labor and parts) please chase them off your property.

Emailed to schedule an appointment, they had openings the very same week so there was fast turn around.
Madison HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
came by, was prompt and efficient in performing a tune-up on our AC. He realized we had a wiring problem that was grounding out the circuit and preventing our thermostat from telling the AC to turn on. He rewired it quickly and the AC is as good as new again! Also he was very professional and willing to answer questions I had about maintaining the unit. Would definitely hire them again.

The Angie's List deal was for

and Cooling, but the plumber who actually contacted me and did the work was

from
Madison HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
Plumbing. It took a couple weeks to make contact and get an appointment.
Once I was in contact with
Madison HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
things went very smoothly. I was at work at the time of the service and my housemate was there to meet him. He checked all the items on my list and called me to discuss the options. It turns out that most of the faucets in my house are original from the 1970s. They are getting past the end of their expected service life and have to be replaced instead of repaired. The replacement faucets are good quality. He also caulked the joints where the exterior faucets enter the house.
When he turned off the water he noticed that it was difficult to push the handle to flush the toilet. He called me again to explain what caused this and asked if I wanted it fixed. Yes, I did.
I am very happy with the quality of his work and will call him the next time I need a plumber.

I sat in the basement and watched as they did the inspection. They explained everything as they went. My furnace is 22 years old. They found it to still be doing okay and did not try to sell me a new one. They recommended an annual check to keep tabs on it.

and son were very helpful in getting our air conditioner back up and working 100%. They were on time, professional, and went above and beyond by also showing me different techniques that not only would keep the house at a comfortable humidity, but also will help reduce our energy bill. They let me watch what they did and explained the importance of each action. I'll definitely be calling them back for additional service in the future.

Who answers his own phone, works on a Saturday or Sunday, and charges a reasonable price?

, the owner of
Madison HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
.
I had been out of town, and when I got back home on a warm Friday, the air conditioning unit was not working. Because I was leaving town again soon, and with more warm temperatures predicted for the weekend and the following week, I knew I needed to call my service provider right away, but that company left me hanging with a voice mail at only 4:30. Not wanting to pay for an "emergency call" with them, I chose to look around in the event I might find someone else more responsive. After I read

's excellent reviews on Angie's list, I checked his internet site and found he has regularly scheduled Saturday and Sunday mornings. What are the odds? I gave

came on time. Was very professional and efficient. He found mouse damage and replaced the contractor and run capacitor. Unit works great. I thought the price for the parts, time, and time of week that he did the work were very reasonable. I know they were less than what my regular company would have charged for that "emergency call."

and his son run their own company, so you get them on the phone and don't play voice message tag. He was responsive, professional, personable, and polite. I highly recommend him over my other provider when needed.
