Hvac Reviews in San Jose


I was contacted by the provider a few days after purchasing a "Big Deal" with an appointment set-up for a couple of weeks in advance.
and I had to play a few rounds of phone tag before we could get a day and time mutually agreed upon. The technician arrived as scheduled and was very professional. The one issue I had was that there was an "extra" observer along that day that was either in training or was there to learn the trade. I wasn't especially pleased with the arrangement. The fellow seemed OK, but just seemed to be observing a little more than just what the technician was doing. All of the equipment checked out fine and I was happy with the work provided by the technician.

The employees were prompt, courteous and helpful. Everything was handled professionally, from the first on-site check to the completion of the actual installation of the system, which was finished on schedule. They made sure it was operating properly before we got the payment taken care of.

The service person showed up on time, explained what he was doing as he went along, performed his job quickly, and returned everything as it was (left the place clean).

Generally very well. Maintenance was thorough. They found one repair that was needed; it was done correctly but I believe the price charged was too high. We did sign up for a service contract with them.

The representative was through and informative about the need to have a HERS test on our system. He told us that the asbestos around our duct work would require abatement before the pressure testing, and that would be an additional charge. I later learned that if you have asbestos around the duct work, you are exempt from pressure testing. This is one key fact I felt the estimator should have known.

I called and explained the issue and the owner (I think) said that there was definitely a problem, but was busy right then and would call me back shortly. After three hours, I called back and explained that I had called earlier. His reply was basically, "Well if you say so" and not very friendly. I launched into the problem description then and he said "Now I remember you". No apology for never calling back. He said that he would have someone out at 4:00. The technician called an said he was delayed and got there about 5:00. The technician checked and said that there was no longer a clog in the pipe. He was checking the outside compressor and found that a valve had been installed backwards. He told me that we should shut down the air conditioner immediately and not use it and that they would call back the next morning with an estimate. We researched it on the internet and found that yes the valve was installed backwards, but while it wasn't optimal it was not dangerous.

never called back with the estimate.

took pictures and said a quote would be emailed. I never heard back. He did not give me information (i.e. educate me on HVAC systems) to be able to make a good decision on equipment. In fact he told me the A/C compressor could be installed where we were thinking it should go. Other businesses told us that was not a good place and exactly why it wouldn't work there.

We had four companies bid for this job. The first one took pictures and would email a quote (never heard back from them). The second took pictures and emailed the quote. We were not given a choice of units. (This one installed our neighbors A/C - they were happy with them.) A third gave me the pricing for the units and would email a full quote when we chose the unit we wanted. Their pricing was several thousand more than anyone else. (This one installed a friend's A/C - they were happy with them.)
Reliable was the only one who gave us a full quote the day of the walk thru. Vic was very informative, he gave us the education we needed on an HVAC system so that we could make the right decisions/choices.

did the actual install and he was professional and pleasant to work with. We did have to enlarge the return air opening. In addition to the heater and A/C we also added a duct to our enclosed patio. Since they would already be under the house we included running an additional power line for a future purchase of a spa. Did it take longer than the projected time to complete the project - yes, but we expected that. Whenever you have work done on a house there's always something that will delay the completion. Part of our delay was due to the difficulty of crawling under our house (which we know isn't easy - there are a lot of obstacles under ours, including very large rocks). The only thing not discussed before the job was the thermostat (except that it needed to be replaced and relocated). That resulted in our getting one that we don't like. It's a one week program and we would prefer a 7 day or 5-2 at minimum. A larger, back lit display is another thing we would prefer. The work was just finished yesterday so I have left a message requesting an upgraded thermostat. I'm sure they'll take care of it.

Trying to schedule an appointment was challenging and over several months before the actual work was completed. They were extremely backlogged, and took a few weeks just to get a quote. We got the Angies deal and prepaid for 2 hours of services, so asked for a quote based on estimated hours. We didn't get anything in writing, except email that stated $120/hour rate.

came out and did the work as requested, he made a few recommendations and finished the job as expected.

gave a written estimate for this project on the spot, which was great considering that other companies would take days to send a written proposal or wouldn't send one at all. The initial bid included work we decided not to do, and

was very helpful in changing the proposal to be within our budget and priorities.
They installed a super-efficient furnace and air conditioner the first day and spent the second day installing a zone system. They were extremely clean and courteous and were even able to work around my toddler's nap time.
They exceeded my expectations in every way, and although the cost of this kind of equipment is quite high, the comfort difference compared to the old equipment is enormous. I would definitely recommend

for any residential HVAC project.
