"The furnace maintenance went far beyond what I expected. The provider explained the details of my furnace and which parts had been replaced. He identified and corrected" some incorrect settings that had never been checked in the 10 years since the furnace was installed. He identified the source of a whistling sound and was able to fix it. Excellent work all around.

"They were suppose to clean the AC unit. I think they just hosed it down...didn't take it apart and clean it. I could have done a better job. Unfortunately" I was not home when they did it. Also a pain to get it scheduled. was nothing worng wit hte AC function so that was not relevant. But I did want it cleaned.

Hiring an HVAC service

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

HVAC Maintenance

You can help your home's heating and cooling systems work more efficiently and last longer by tending to regular maintenance. Some tasks, such as changing the furnace filter, can easily be done by the homeowner.

As a home seller, there's nothing more nerve-wracking than waiting for the results of the buyer's home inspection.

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.
?

Assuming you already have an installed units with all ductwork and so forth, small square footage furnace and AC can generally run anywhere form $2000-$5000 for each unit, or about $4000-10000 for a combined unit, depending on ease of installation, etc. This assumes your existing plumbing, electrical, ductwork, etc are directed suitable, so it is merely a matter of cutting  in a new unit and hooking it up. The lowest price would be for a minimally efficient unit, the upper number for highest efficiency.

If you are changing the type of heat (baseboard to forced air or electric to gas, for instance) or installing AC from scratch, then running power, ductwork, etc can up to double that number.

If you live near the coast (and depending on how hot you will let the condo get before cooling kicks in) the cost savings of a high efficiency unit might not pay for itself. Of course, if you are in the San Gabriel Mountains and really need winter heat, or in the Mohave desert or inland valley area and really need serious air conditioning, then a high efficiency unit (which can cost twice as much) might pay for itself in 5-10 years.

Your utility company (companies if gas heat with electric AC) can help with guides on how much your savings might be with different efficiencies, and may have an energy efficiency rebate program for efficient units. Also, the California Energy Commission has information and online calculators for that, as well as rebate programs for energy efficiency. There is also a federal energy efficiency rebate program (though it is generally limited to a tax credit equal to 10% of the cost of energy efficient retrofits, unless it is considered an "alternative energy" system). Pay attnetion to these energy rebate programs - I have a neighbor who, between state and federal program, had the entire cost of his insulation upgrade and furnace/hot wate heater system replacement covered in toto, except for few hundred $ for the initial energy audit. About $8000 in work for about $300, with about $100/month reduction in gas bills.

As always with condo units, check with the condo manager and the bylaws to find out what the rules are - some condos require matching units or installation by a certain contractor for ease of maintenance, and in many condos the heating and AC are actually the responsibility of the condo association or the bylaws require that the association handle the installation but you pay the cost, etc. Also, major work of this type usually has to be coordinated with the condo manager, and there may be time of day limitations on work hours, etc.

And of course make sure your HVAC contractor, if you end up choosing him, is licensed, bonded, insured, and well recommended, and whether any repairs to walls, floors, ceiling etc necessitated by replacing the system are or are not covered in his bid (he would subcontract this out, or more likely tell you that you need a general contractor to supervize plumber, electrician, plasterer, painter, flooring contractor, etc).

The service technician seemed very thorough, checking electrical, gas pressure, condensate drain, etc. Everything checked out good. No complaints.

We purchased an air conditioner 3 years ago from . The unit didn't work right the first year so he came back
.and fixed it, or so we thought. The next year in the summer it began to leak again and he had to go into the wall to try and fix it a different way. He said if you have more problems we will get you a new ...More unit. Well the next year we did have problems and true to his word he replaced the unit with a different model and it seems to be working like a charm. He never charged us an additional penny for the return visits. Not sure if it was a defective unit or improper installation but was always available to help rectify the problem. Very honest businessman! I plan on taking advantage of the furnace inspection discount that is offered now with and will use them in the future for any other heating or cooling problems.

The job went great! and installed the Aprilaire in the perfect location on the ducting, keeping the install compact and neat. This was an unusual installation, most Aprilaires are used with forced-air heating systems. I certainly could not have performed the installation myself, as it required tapping ...More into the wiring for the A/C system to activate its fan when the Aprilaire humidistat determines the air needs humidification. The net result is that humidification is fully automatic and hands-free, and more effective because humidified air is coming out of multiple floor vents on the first floor of our house.
Anyone who has radiators for heat and has subsequently installed a central A/C system for cooling should really look into this Aprilaire setup, it makes humidification of your house SO MUCH EASIER!
We had previously used for annual checkups of our boiler, and I was so impressed with their knowledge and honesty. When we eventually need to replace the boiler will be the first place I call. They did a fantastic job on the Aprilaire installation and I highly recommend them!

I've had a lot of issues with my HVAC unit in my new house. I've had a couple different contractors our at different time (mainly whoever I could get out first). D&J came out today because they were contracted by a contractor I was using to do drywall and other repairs. was very polite and diagnosed the issue ...More within a few minutes. He was very helpful and got everything back to working quickly. Plus he didn't make me feel like an idiot (the issue was really something I should have caught). I will definitely use them again--hard to find trustworthy folks nowadays.

was great- would absolutely use again. Our heat went out on the first real cold night of the season. Contacted him on Saturday morning to come. It was an issue with the pilot tube on our boiler. He showed up earlier than planned and was able to fix the problem without difficulty. He also checked out some of the radiators in ...More our home. Services were priced very reasonably. We had called another HVAC service provider, who was going to charge twice as much and come later in the day.

I'd used him before from Angie's list having just moved from Georgia in Feb to Wisconsin and fearing those Wisconsin winters' "cold enough for ya?". Lets have the system checked, the previous owner having been Mr. Zero maint.
No up-sell. On time. He didn't have the filter for my unit in his van - but its a walk in ...More basement not my previous crawl space so he should have had but this is just something relevant to the review. I din't especially care.
What I will say is he went around all the vents and duct controls and make some other adjustment to the system which he said was operating well and he showed me his test report print out - but after that adjustment it's like a new system - it's operating much better.
In addition I'd bought a Wi Fi HVAC control - we travel a lot for work and this seems like a good idea. He said it was to install and I could do it myself but popped the existing and checked the wring, which saved me a lot of hassle as the existing was battery powered and the hardwired "C" power wired was not connected, which he did. I did the install and it works great but I'd have been lost regarding what the issue would have been with the "C" wire. He'd said if I had any problems just call him and he'd talk me through it.
and his assistant are just likable guys doing a good job. I prefer smaller set-ups like this, small business. I have no hesitation in recommending.

There were some initial issues getting a response from the company, after I purchased the deal through Angie's List. I purchased the air conditioner tune-up on August 4 and did not get a response regarding scheduling of the service until 8/31. When we did finally connect, they were great and able to get me scheduled for service the following week. ...More In the meantime, they began offering a furnace tune-up deal on Angie's List which we decided to purchase as well. We called the company 2 days before our scheduled service to see if there was any way the could perform both inspections/tune-ups at the same service call. They were very accommodating and worked with us to start our service a little earlier and were able to push back the appointment after us by a little bit, so they could complete both services in one visit.
The technician actually arrived about 15 minutes earlier than scheduled, which was great! He was very courteous and polite. He inspected the furnace first and then the air conditioning. He knew what he was doing and took the time after completing the tune-ups to review what he had done and anything we needed to do to maintain the furnace/air conditioner.
