"I inherited
from the previous homeowner through the equipment warranty. For over 10 years, semi-annual maintenance/inspections were performed" thoroughly and on time. For the few small services I needed (line conditioner), they were efficient, and the cost was reasonable. When my AC finally gave out completely, I received a quote from them for replacing the entire heat and AC system, which was in line with other quotes received. I ended up choosing another company that offered more flexibility and creativity in replacement options, but I would recommended
for its professionalism and good service.

"Alpine was quick to arrange an appointment. they were on time, very professional and prompt in the follow-up. We were trying to avoid replacing the unit if posssible" and Alpine did not push us replace it. When we finally decided to replace the unit, Alpine worked with the home insurance company for a replacement value. They then provided estimates for several brands using the current refrigerant. When we decided to update the unit, they promptly sent estimate for those. After deciding on a brand, Alpine said if we waited a few weeks they could get the brand we wanted, but didn't want to pay the difference, for the same price as what we initially chose. When installing the new unit several problems were found in the venting, etc of the old unit, which they promptly fixed (resulting in an extra day of work) and charged it to the insurance company. Everyone we worked with at Alpine was very pleasant and friendly. They came as scheduled or called when things changed. I felt I was treated fairly and the work was well done.

The Angie's List Guide to Winter Maintenance

It's the time of year when the winter weather can take a toll. Follow this winter maintenance checklist to protect your home, your car and your health.

Hiring an HVAC service

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

Strategically placing fans throughout your home can help keep it cool. (Photo by Steve C. Mitchell)
Heating & A/C

Keep cool in the hot summer months and survive without air conditioning by following these expert tips, such as grilling outside or installing an attic fan.

Two warranties govern furnace installs. The first is the manufacturer's warranty, which comes with the furnace and protects against defects in the furnace itself. A contractor's warranty covers the labor involved to make repairs if the furnace doesn't work properly. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Wayne L. of St. Louis)

No one can tell you what another contractor will charge. There is no one set price for heating and air-conditioning equipment installation. One of the major factors that affect your price is its size. No one can tell you what size equipment you’ll need without doing a load analysis on the home. That calculation essentially determines the insulation value of the home, i.e... What is the heat gain of the home, what are some other prevailing factors like room equipment, solar gain, or natural shading? You can compare prices between contractors to gauge what your cost would be between contractors, but this is a little tricky to do. Let me explain a little more. Let's say you get an installation quote of $5050.00 from contractor “A” who employs three technicians and operates two trucks. He also runs his operation from home. Contractor “B” charges $6200.00 to do the same job but has 10 employees and 5 trucks. He works out of a rental unit and offers his people a little bit better of a benefit package to recruit highly motivated workers. Everything else being equal (equipment size, SEER rating, furnace efficiency, brand name and additional material—other things that affect the price), is either one of these contractors defrauding you? No, their overhead is different. All these things play into a company’s labor rate. Just be aware of your expectations when it comes to performing any kind work in your home. If you want to pay an extremely low-inexpensive price below the average installation cost in your area then you are highly likely to get the quality of work that comes with that cost. Remember cheaper is not better!

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!


The furnaces are both good. They come with the same warranty. More importantly it is the installation process that is most important. Both of these furnaces need to be setup properly as they both tend to be particular if installed incorrectly.

I will say that I am a York Certified comfort Expert. I have in the past been a Trane Dealer. I used to dislike York, but since Johnson Controls bought them, they have improved drastically. Since Ingersollrand bought Trane they have improved slightly, but I am not impressed.

The differences in both are as follows (these are both top of the line form theier manufacturers):

The Trane has a 95% Efficiency The York is 98% efficient.

The Trane has 2 stages of heating the York has 100 stages of heating.

Both systems have variable speed motors with different modes, Trane has Comfort R and York has ClimaTrak, both pretty much the same.  Setup of the dipswitches/jumpers are the most importnant and vary by system size and your climate.

The Trane has an external trap and is either upflow or downflow. The York is 4 way compatible with an internal trap.

The Trane has a nicer furnace cabinet, but most of the time the furnace is hidden and is irelevant.

Some Trane units are made in Monterey, Mexico. All York units are Made in Witchita, Kansas or Norman , Oklahoma. (some interanl components are made overseas in both units, but all Yorks are assembled in USA).

Depending on your installation companies relationship, then the support they get from the manufacturer differs. I have found that if you buy alot of Trane you get good service, if you do not, then service is not that great. The same may be said about York, but so far I have great support from York. York will work with the smaller companies more than Trane will (my opinion).  Again, I have sold, installed and repaired from both manufacturers so I have knowledge in both. I also used to dislike York. If you are in the trade, I invite you to look at the new York line of systems. You will may be impressed.


I think both products offer the best furnaces available, compared to other brands.  Depending on who installs it is most important as well as their relationship with the manufacturers.  Both good products.  I hope that helps.



A NATE Certified Mechanical Contractor.

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.
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.

Hvac reviews in Grover Beach


On time. Courteous. knowledgeable service tech -- explained problems with old unit and approx costs to repair (13-yr-old unit).
Speedy service, courteous installers. All went well. I am not the homeowner of this property. It is property of my sis-in-law who recently passed away & I was the "responsible aunt" of her son to help and assist him with this issue as he isn't capable of making such decisions on his own.

I LOVE these guys. I have American Home Shield who assigns the company that will come out and perform the service I need. When they tell me it is

, I get excited because they are the BEST ones that have worked on my A/C units (and I have 2 units). They are so accomodating and will always call in advance which gives me time to leave work and meet them at my house. I just feel like they give me the most for my $. I actually told them the wrong unit (which they checked and found nothing wrong) and had to call them back to have them check the other unit (which needed freeon). They did not make me call in another service request, nor did they charge me an additional fee which I gladly would have paid for my error.

Excellent, Norm does what he says he's going to do. He is always punctual and will schedule appointments at times that are convenient for me. I've used his services for years for air conditioner and appliances. I highly recommend.
- Liz A.

Didn't do the audit requested. Didn't address issues of concern. Aspects of estimate seemed overpriced, some were fair. I asked for a specific type of evaluation and was crystal clear in the description of it. They actually sent me a brochure describing this service explaining its advantages over the usual inspection. Amazingly, the HVAC guy did none of it. I called to request the service we originally agreed upon. They said he didn't do that but asked ME to contact him. He was nice and offered to do what I originally requested. I had lost confidence in

and his technicians were pleasant, easy to work with, cleaned up after themselves and got the job done in a minimum amount of time.
- Anne P.

There was some scheduling confusion and an additional delay so we had to wait half a day for the tech to arrive. Once he got here he did a fine job of checking out our furnace and explaining everything he did. He marketed a smart thermostat but there was no hard sell and the price was fair.
- Janet M.

Back in Nov we set an appt time for January, on a day that I was planning to be off of work. (like many companies they were unable to accommodate my work schedule and could not come in late afternoon). Unfortunately they had some emergencies the day of the appt and they called about a half hr prior to the appt time to reschedule. We set a new time for a couple weeks in future and the gentleman came a few minutes late but was very polite and professional and spent a good amount of time cleaning the furnace and vents and ensuring everything was working properly. I would use them again.
