"The
came and was very friendly. He checked both of my intake vents and would have changed the filters if I had replacements. He went up into" the attic, where I couldn't follow and check the system there. He then went outside to add Freon to the unit.

"Within 15 minutes of leaving an after hours voicemail,
responded about my outside unit not running. He advised me to leave it off for the" night and that he'd be by the next day to take a look after he finished two other appointments. He quickly determined the problem, fixed it, and topped off the freon. I was relieved that he didn't suggest a new unit because due to the age of the system we'd have to replace both the outside unit and the air handler inside.
took a look at our air handler (I probably intrigued him after explaining all of the logistical issues with it!) and he provided a good suggestion to keep the coils cleaner. He recommended I followup with him in fall/winter for a system checkup. He was very professional and lived up to everything everyone else says in the other reviews. Two years ago I had another company come out for a system checkup and they push hard for me to replace the whole system. Thank you,
for not putting that pressure on me. We'll replace it someday and when we do it will be with

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.

Just because your house doesn't have central air conditioning doesn’t mean it can’t be added.

Protect your A/C in the summer heat by looking out for these common causes of freeze.

A/C systems last between 10 and 20 years, so you'll probably buy a new one at some point.

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.

YOU.
You bought the home after an inspection that told you there were issues?
Every state has different laws regarding home purchases, contact your real estate agent to find out what remedies may apply.
THIS IS EXACTLY why you hire QUALIFIED and LICENSED contractors.

Service went well, both technicians took time to explain the whole process before they did any work. In addition they answered all my questions to satisfaction. Every single time they enter the house shoes/boots were cover with disposable booties to avoid bringing dirt inside. Both took their time to check and review everything they saw and consulted with other technicians to make sure they did not missed anything. I am very satisfied with this company and if ever need any other type of service (plumbing or electrical) they will be the first to call. Receiving and email with a picture of the technician right the phone call to confirm arrival is a great customer service point that makes a customer comfortable.

misdiagnosed the water leak, blaming our hot water heater rather than the pump connected to the furnace humidifier. They gave us a wildly inflated quote for replacing the hot water heater (which we didn't need to do). When we proved to them the next week that the problem was the pump, they finally fixed the actual problem....More /> we've also been trying to get a quote from them for 2 years on replacing the furnace with a newer model. We thought they would be a good choice, since they've maintained our old furnace for us for the past 10-15 years. Unfortunately, they keep promising to send us a quote and not sending it.

was great! He fixed the problem quickly, showed me why the poor installation caused buildup of residue causing blockage.
He gave me suggestions on how to prevent recurrence of this problem and made suggestions as to how often to have preventative maintenance performed. We were very disgusted with the original installer who had tried to charge us an extra $2000 when the electrical inspector would not approve their lack of knowledge of code. As a result, we ignored yearly maintenance suggestions.

had a long list of appointments (as did the three other companies I contacted) due to the extreme hot weather. We elected to do the repair on overtime rather than wait three to four weeks when we were miserable with the heat.
