Vernon HVAC Contractors from people just like you.

"Overall, no issues with the work performed. The person was on time, professional, courteous and knowledgable. The only problem was the price. I had already paid" for the basic package to do a diagnostic, he said the thermostat was not controlling the AC properly, and then swapped it out with another one I had. To do this, he charged me $225, which I thought was excessive, since I'd already paid for the diagnostic separately and I provided the replacement thermostat.


"I have had
since I first moved into my older 1920's home 25 years ago. I had them replace the oil burner in 1992 and now wished I had" put in a gas burner /furnace then. The home has plaster walls and is not amenable to a duct heat system and the house is big. I was worried about the environmental impact of my in ground oil tank going forward and especially if/when I came time to sell my home.
has always been great with service calls and I have their guardian contract. I dealt with
H and he was fabulous from start to finish. I thought their price was a little high looking at Angie List comparable reviews but I knew they would do a good job. The job went well and gas line was not an issue. Decommission went well with fortunately non detect soil samples so tank did not have to be dug up. New system is so much quieter and so much more efficient. My gas bill is a fourth of my oil bills. House heats quicker and furnace so much quieter. I even got an energy rebate and
did all the paper work for me. They may be a little bit more but I would recommend
H and his crew. The oil tank decommission was an additional 3,000$ on top of the 11,000.

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 heating and cooling systems work more efficiently and last longer by tending to regular maintenance. Some things, like changing the furnace filter, can easily be done by the homeowner.

Angie's Answers


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!

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.

were great. They were very patient when educating me on what needed replacing in my old furnace. Their price was reasonable and I felt like they had a lot of integrity.

I first called

when I saw a puddle under my water heater.

- Diana B.

I was connected to
Vernon HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
& Cooling through my home owners warranty. They were responsive and came out to determine the issues when my furnace broke. They assured me I did not need a new furnace, just a new heat exchanger, which would be covered by the warranty. Explained that there was some urgency to have the work done, or I could have issues with high Carbon Monoxide levels in the house. I scheduled the work, which they came out and did on time and quickly.
Later that evening, the CO monitors in the house went off. Ultimately, the fire department was called, and I was informed that the levels in the house were "fatal" had the alarms not gone off. Was told that the dog would not have likely made it had we not have been home when the alarms went off. The gas company was called, turned off the gas and did not allow me back in the house. Despite 6 calls to
Vernon HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
and Heating, I got no response that evening.
Had to call 3 more times in the AM, still was unable to get an answer (I was talking with their answering service), it took the warranty company to get them on the phone. They sent out the same technician (which I had asked them not to do), who was immediately defensive and said I couldn't prove the CO issues were a result of the work he did.
Turns out he knocked some duct work loose, which was an honest mistake. However, he neglected to do any testing for CO gasses before he left the house. His only reason was that I was in a hurry for him to finish. This was negligent at best. Despite the admission that he had caused the CO, he refused to take responsibility and would not acknowledge the seriousness of the error. To add insult to injury, he informed me that this wouldn't have happened if I had just bought a new furnace (which they told me I didn't need to do), and left me with a $1,200 estimate to "fix" additional parts.
3 weeks later, I have never heard from anyone at the company to discuss the situation. I have reported them to the warranty company. If you chose to use this provider, I would insist upon a CO check and I would make sure your CO monitors are working. Their negligence put my entire family at serious risk.

The install went great.
Vernon HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived on time and called to let me know he was on the way. This was a day when we got four inches of snow and Federal offices and schools were closed. He was very polite and wore shoe covers so he would not mess up the floor. I would definitely use him again in the future.
- Warren H.

The tech did not close the air return grill correctly and appears to have caused it to become lopsided after it was forced closed, which I did not notice for a few weeks later. I was able to take it apart and repair it as best as I could. No worries.
- Alvin S.

Our furnace finally bit the dust on the day before Christmas Eve. After leaving several phone messages on answering machines of various companies and getting nervous due to the holiday, I was extremely surprised that the owner of J D

answered my call personally without hesitation. He was very friendly and informative and offered to come right over!

We called J D

We are very happy customers and would highly recommend J D

Furnace went out and I called 1st thing in the morning. Couple hours later it was fixed. Took only a minute or two for him to diagnose the problem once he arrived. Could tell he knew what he was doing.
- Chuck C.

The repair Tech did an excellant job of checking out the furnace for the cause of the breaker tripping. It ended up being a bad breaker. He also check out my second furnace while he was there.
