"It was just great!
demonstrated real expertise, dedication, professionalism and punctuality as well as showing respect for our home by wearing foot coverings" and other such considerations. I could not find the slightest fault or think of anything at all to criticize. We are very pleased to know of his business.

"I purchased a big deal and it took a couple weeks just to get the estimate. I had 5 ceiling fans and 2 light fixtures to replace. They sent one electrician and after being at my house" all day he only had 2 ceiling fans and 1 light fixture up. The scaffolding he had to reach the entryway light didn't work (I gave the dimensions of my ceiling before hand), and while installing a ceiling fan in the kitchen he hit a water pipe and water went everywhere and down into the basement. He was very apologetic, cleaned up the mess and said they would call to reschedule the rest of the job. After a week without hearing back from MVP I hired someone else. After adding up the "big deal" and the bill I paid the plumber, I still owed MVP $5.70. I asked if they would waive that fee since I had to take another weekday to meet the drywall guy for repairs, not to mention their electrician had left the decorative collar off the ceiling fan in my living room. MVP declined. Silver lining is that I found 3 great companies.
Electric did an amazing job for hundreds less than what MVP was charging me!
County Home Service Plumbing was at my house within 10 min. after the water pipe was hit and the Drywall Dr did a great job repairing my ceiling. I will not use
again and you can be sure they are going nowhere near my furnace or a/c. Overpriced. Poor workmanship. Poor customer service.

Hiring an HVAC service

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

If you are looking for the peak of heating and cooling efficiency and performance, a Frigidaire system can address your needs.
Heating & A/C

The efficiency of your new furnace is one of the most crucial aspects of long-term performance for your unit. Learn what's recommended for your region.

Heating & A/C

Heat pumps have many advantages, but most homeowners aren't sure how much a heat pump costs to install and operate, compared to normal central air HVAC systems.

New furnaces also have more safety controls and sensors than older furnaces, says Unsdorfer. (Photo courtesy of Central Heating & Air Conditioning Co.)

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.

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.

came and did a quote for the complete system and the condensing unit respectively. I ended up going for the complete system replacement installation after considering all the options. They were very good in communicating/scheduling the work and they did come out on time, actually a little bit earlier and performed the work right away. It was done very professionally and everything was cleaned up before they left the house. A walk through was done and I was shown how to operate the thermostat too. Very happy with the experience.

Our furnace is tuned up and ready to go for the up coming winter.
Our gas fireplace is now operational - we have not been able to use if for over a year now as it would not light. The technician was able to find the issue and got it up and running and all cleaned - we are back in business to use this winter.

After requesting service and a second opinion on the replacement of a HVAC system for our house I received a call from

who was very nice and said again that she would have a salesperson call me . After waiting all day for a call that never came I decided to go with another company. I don't feel it's my responsibility top chase down a company to give them my business and frankly it's a bad first impression. They have good reviews on here so apparently they do good work. If were able to talk to them I might have been able to find out for sure. Good luck with your requests if you try.

This is the third time this is happened in the 13 years of owning this house. I notice a wet floor or ceiling and it's just the copper pipe going bad after 20+ years. This time, they said they were very busy, but they were still out in two hours! The two guys that came out were very professional, did a good job with the repair, and recommended a good drywall repair person. Very impressed!
