"The repair man was courteous, prompt, thorough, answered my many questions, provided a checklist of what was being inspected and finished quickly. He brought all" his tools including a ladder to inspect the cooler unit on the 2nd floor roof. We decided to get the three year contract for two inspections a year with priority scheduling. That option also lowered the price per visit. The final contract was completed and mailed to us. Although we couldn't use any of the on-line coupons, we were happy with the service and the price.

"They are great. Not only did they fix my problem, but they helped me to feel at ease. Who wants to even think about having to replace a HVAC system. But the provider" found a
wire problem and and we are all set for the winter!

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 home's heating and cooling systems work more efficiently and last longer by tending to regular maintenance. Some tasks, such as changing the furnace filter, can easily be done by the homeowner.

Angie's Answers

There are many questions to answer before anyone can give you a price for your new system.  It's like calling a dealership and asking how much a new car is.  They need more details, too.

Call a few HVAC contractors in your area and ask for bids to replace your system.  Ask them what they recommend and why.  Then compare apples to apples.  A higher efficiency system will cost you more up front but will save you more on your energy bill.  However, be warned that some of the super high efficiency systems don't typically pay off in savings due to their higher parts and service costs down the road.

Be leary of contractors who quote you prices over the phone or internet without looking at your home.  They may be either inexperienced or will hit you with higher costs once on site due to things they didn't plan for and easily could have if they had just looked at the job in advance.  Many of the big box stores do this with their installation services for all kinds of things.

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.

Assuming you already have an installed units with all ductwork and so forth, small square footage furnace and AC can generally run anywhere form $2000-$5000 for each unit, or about $4000-10000 for a combined unit, depending on ease of installation, etc. This assumes your existing plumbing, electrical, ductwork, etc are directed suitable, so it is merely a matter of cutting  in a new unit and hooking it up. The lowest price would be for a minimally efficient unit, the upper number for highest efficiency.

If you are changing the type of heat (baseboard to forced air or electric to gas, for instance) or installing AC from scratch, then running power, ductwork, etc can up to double that number.

If you live near the coast (and depending on how hot you will let the condo get before cooling kicks in) the cost savings of a high efficiency unit might not pay for itself. Of course, if you are in the San Gabriel Mountains and really need winter heat, or in the Mohave desert or inland valley area and really need serious air conditioning, then a high efficiency unit (which can cost twice as much) might pay for itself in 5-10 years.

Your utility company (companies if gas heat with electric AC) can help with guides on how much your savings might be with different efficiencies, and may have an energy efficiency rebate program for efficient units. Also, the California Energy Commission has information and online calculators for that, as well as rebate programs for energy efficiency. There is also a federal energy efficiency rebate program (though it is generally limited to a tax credit equal to 10% of the cost of energy efficient retrofits, unless it is considered an "alternative energy" system). Pay attnetion to these energy rebate programs - I have a neighbor who, between state and federal program, had the entire cost of his insulation upgrade and furnace/hot wate heater system replacement covered in toto, except for few hundred $ for the initial energy audit. About $8000 in work for about $300, with about $100/month reduction in gas bills.

As always with condo units, check with the condo manager and the bylaws to find out what the rules are - some condos require matching units or installation by a certain contractor for ease of maintenance, and in many condos the heating and AC are actually the responsibility of the condo association or the bylaws require that the association handle the installation but you pay the cost, etc. Also, major work of this type usually has to be coordinated with the condo manager, and there may be time of day limitations on work hours, etc.

And of course make sure your HVAC contractor, if you end up choosing him, is licensed, bonded, insured, and well recommended, and whether any repairs to walls, floors, ceiling etc necessitated by replacing the system are or are not covered in his bid (he would subcontract this out, or more likely tell you that you need a general contractor to supervize plumber, electrician, plasterer, painter, flooring contractor, etc).

Hvac reviews in Glen Carbon


Over a year ago when our house was not cooling well, we had 3 providers take a look. Two said "you need a BIGGER system."
Glen Carbon HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
suggested having our insulation checked and enhanced. They said our system was old, but would run another year or two. By the end of this Summer we needed a few costly repairs, and knew it was time.
Glen Carbon HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave us gave us credit for the repairs against the system replacement cost.We agreed on a date and a price. The work was completed in 1 day as promised and the workmen left the work spaces in good shape. Over the next few days we had two follow up visits to make sure everything worked correctly. EVERYONE at

has a great attitude….they want the customer to be happy and understand that large jobs like this are stressful for homeowners. They are professional, responsive and went above and beyond our expectations.
- Alan S.

I had used him before and respected his knowledge and insight about HVAC problems. He responded promptly to my request to investigate a problem switching from heat to cool mode. He was able to force it to cool mode due to the failure of the control panel. He ordered a new one and installed it promptly upon receiving it. Reasonably priced and expert work. I will definitely use him again.
- Ron L.

We called early and he was able to come out later that day.
Glen Carbon HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
was prompt and professional. He checked out our relatively new AC unit and discovered the reason it wasn't working. He replaced the capacitor, which was still under warranty and just charged us just for the service call minus the coupon we had from Angie's list.
- Charles T.

Our AC went kaput last evening for unknown reasons. Hottest day and the night of the year, of course, and we're in the valley, facing west. It got so hot we had to sleep somewhere else. We contacted
Glen Carbon HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
and they were there promptly the next day (today), and quickly found the problem. We were worried that we might need a whole new AC unit, but Oleg informed us that replacing a capacitor, a fuse, and adding some Freon would do the trick. 30 minutes later, he was right... and done. Best service call ever -- well worth every penny. Fantastic people to work with. They've made us a customer!
- David K.

My furnace had been inoperative for a day, and the temperature in my house had dropped into the high 20's at night. I looked up a highly reviewed HVAC company, and called for a service call. The woman who took my phone call was professional, and helpful, and arranged for a technician to come to my home that morning. The service technician was an extremely nice person, and after crawling in my crawl space, and seeing the unit, came out, and told me it was rusted throughout, and I needed a new motor. I explained my funds were very limited because I was unemployed, and currently seeking employment. He was kind, and explained due to the rust, age, and condition the entire unit needed to be replaced, and would cost approximately $5-$8k. I said I wanted a bid, so he called a project manager to come out. The project manager came, and asked me to show him where the unit was. He said it would just be a few minutes. he knocked on my door, and sat down. He said "it" will be about $5000.00". I am unemployed, but highly educated, and said calmly "what is it?", his reply "the unit". I continued "what unit?" He said we carry several, and named a few, and said he would recommend a carrier. I asked "why". I was amazed that I had to pull his teeth to get information about a potential $5000.00 purchase. I told him I need specifics as I was going to reach out to my family for a loan, and they needed the information as much as I did( If I was not in such a time crunch I would have asked him to leave, and done business with another company) He seemed to finally get that I wasn't stupid, and actually may be able to buy a unit. He emailed the specs on Carrier units to me. He told me to call if I needed his assistance, and left. I felt he looked at me dressed in layers of clothes, sweatpants, sweat shirt, and decided before he walked into my house that I wasn't a buyer. I was in a suit the next morning headed to an interview, and wonder how he would have talked to me when I was dressed in a $600.00 suit. I got a green light from family members. The project manager was now very attentive, and moved into action to get a crew out the next morning, which I was grateful for. The installers were great guys, as were everyone I dealt with for the exception of the "project manager". I would never recommend this company. There are too many competitors who will treat people with the respect any human being deserves. I blame myself, for not contacting a competitor, but I didn't have the luxury of time, nor did I have time to thoroughly research HVAC units on Consumer guides etc. A big clue, if you have paid to be on Angie's list you someone who makes an effort to utilize quality providers, and products.
As I said everyone was wonderful to work with except the project manager, and I am grateful I have a HVAC unit in my home. I found employment shortly thereafter, and have been employed in RTP since.

He spent much time attempting to identify the root cause; however, the AC unit started working as soon as he hit on the metal panel of the AC unit. He was not able to identify the root cause. He also examined the

purchased/installed air cleaner and humidifier. He provided instructions for how to clean the filters. He explained the

service plan. He was very punctual, attentive, thorough, educational, helpful, supportive and I could not have asked for more from him than that. Since then the AC unit worked very dependably without further problems. I have been very impressed and happy with all

services and sales - excellent, excellent, excellent!

Was such a pleasant experience.
Glen Carbon HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
helped us fix the nightmare of a problem another contractor caused. Super professional and caring. Honest and more than fair. Included ALOT of extras that needed to be fixed at no charge. Went above and beyond and then some. One of the best in his profession. Do not look anywhere else.
- Bonnie W.

Prompt and professional representatives. When I first called, which was in the middle of the first heat wave, the receptionist advised me that due to demand she could not even try to schedule an appointment. Because of her candor and the reviews on this site, I called back to schedule service after the intense heat had passed.
Upon first inspection it appeared the unit was shot. However, the two technicians went through everything, inspecting the condenser and blower. As a result they were able to discover that the problem was not the condenser but wiring and that mice had eaten the covering off the wires over the winter. (I do not use my central air unless the heat become unbearable; thus the discovery in August!) They fixed the wiring, replaced a part, cleaned and checked the blower, checked the temperature output, all for a very reasonable price. I would definitely call them in the future for repair, and if necessary, replacement.
