Air conditioner and condenser tune-up is standard work, but we have had
come to us and service our air conditioning and heating for many years. Their work has been very through and professional. They installed a new air conditioning system several years ago (the old one was failing) at the best bid and the process was all we had hoped it would be. We are 'comfort club members' of
which means we receive priority service at 15% discount on any parts installed. We found this to be a very good arrangement and the only thing we do earn this is sign up each year to have our A/C and heating service which its a good idea to have done every year. The technicians are dependable and knowledgeable and you get great communication/customer service from their office.

When we bought our house 2.5 years ago, we turned to the company that had been maintaining the system with the previous owner. From the first visit on, I have been impressed with the knowledge and expertise that each tech has. They each care for the system and use their knowledge to keep things running smoothly. When the old boiler needed replacing, they made a recommendation for the best system for this house, ordered all the necessary items, and installed it day later. Likewise with our space-
AC system, we have received prompt, efficient service on every call.
I like supporting locally owned and operated companies.
makes that easy to do since they have a good pool of professionals working for the company. I recommend this company without reservation.

He arrived on time and was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He is passionate about the work he does and eager to educate the consumer. I was impressed with him and would easily have entrusted him with the work. His quote was very reasonable for all we were having done (frankly, I had been expecting near $20K just for the air conditioning). We went with another company only because they had a competitive quote and a slightly different perspective with some additional options. I would highly recommend

Mechanical based on my experience with the estimate and would consider them for related services in the future.

Airblue was great. After my furnace died in the middle of winter, they arrived within an hour of calling. They replaced the ignitor switch to get some heat going in the house before checking out everything else. They discovered a crack in the heating exchange and said it would cost $500 to patch it, but eventually the whole thing would be replaced....More /> They had a new furnace to my door and installed within the next 7 hours and came back the next day to replace the air conditioner and humidifer. They even installed a new thermostat to run everything.
From the service call to the installers to payment (they processed my rebate for me), this company is great.

We have been using
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
exclusively for our furnace and air conditioning needs for the last few years, switching from another long-term vender. We were impressed when calling
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
for an air conditioning upgrade estimate a few years ago. All of their employees have been efficient, friendly and timely. We subscribe to a multiyear contract for air conditioning/furnace check/tune ups, hence the zero above. Although not the cheapest in price, their service is worth it. And their pricing is reasonable, all in all. We would recommend them if you live in our area.

I purchased the Big Deal from this provider on January 24, 2013. I was contacted by phone on January 25th, which was impressively fast. However, I was not home to schedule the appointment. My husband took a message and I returned the call and left a message requesting they call my cell phone to schedule the appointment. I also received a message from them through Angie's List the same day and answered that as well.I received a call, on my house phone, on Tuesday, January 28th. The gentleman explained they had availability the following morning. "Great!" I said. I was impressed at how fast they were scheduling me. Appointment was set for Tuesday morning between 8-11. Unfortunately, our doorbell doesn't work, so I set up in the front window with a book and waited. And waited. And waited. At noon I called and left a message asking where the serviceman was. Approximately an hour later I received a message through Angie's list apologizing that they were unable to come because their technician call off that day. This was more than two hours after I spent the morning in the window. The same message simply stated they "texted" me earlier. I did not receive a text from them that day, I can only assume they texted my landline (
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
!), if they really sent a text at all. The message also stated they would set up an appointment for "some other time." I responded the same day explaining I never got a text, stating if they really sent a text it was probably to my landline and explaining they may want to keep in mind that texts do not go through to landlines. I found it odd that all other communications were to my home phone and through the Angie's List messaging interface -- but that day they said they sent a text...but I gave them the benefit of the doubt and sent a nice message. Still I explained I was disappointed since I'd set apart that morning, but that I looked forward to hearing from them soon to reschedule.
More then a week later I got a message through the Angie's List messaging interface explaining that their records show I purchased the big deal (your records?) as if it were the very first contact. The message went on to state that they would not be able to come install the humdifier until "after April 14th." Now, I live in Chicagoland, and can only assume if you're reading this you do to. I certainly don't need a humidifier to take me into the summer months. The message stated they hoped I "understood" their situation without any explanation to understand. I can only assume that this is a small business incapable of meeting the demand for their Big Deal offered. However, considering I'd had an appointment that was blown off I'd assume they'd make a greater effort to make and keep an appointment and even just to keep communication flowing. To find almost three weeks after purchase that they cannot fulfill their obligation was unprofessional - especially after that missed appointment with no advance notice of the cancellation.
I sent a final message from the Angie's List messaging system on 2.9.2013, reminding them of the missed appointment and explaining I thought the whole experience was unprofessional -- frankly, in hopes that maybe they'd contact me and try to make it right. No such luck. Zero response. And now I'm waiting for a refund.
There are lots of companies out there that can do fantastic work in their respective fields---and all of them can make mistakes with regards to quality, scheduling or any number of things. It's how a company deals with a problem (not the actual problem) that's a better metric in my opinion. Not dealing with a problem is about the worst. I run a small business too -- and know what it's like to be overwhelmed. Had they contacted me soon after purchase to say they were oversold I would have completely understood. It happens. But leaving me in
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
and being unresponsive and having me sit waiting for an appointment in an appointment window without any notice? The price and quality of the work just don't matter if a company is unresponsive and unreliable. I'd sooner pay double and not waste my time...

While out of town, I received a call around Midnight from my security alarm service indicating my house had cooled to below 48 degrees, and the night temperature was predicted to fall to -5 F.
I called a different heating service, who initially installed my furnace, and asked for emergency service. I was told that I would get a call back from a serviceman, but when I didn't receive one by 7AM, I called again, and was promised service between 1 and 4 PM in the afternoon.
While arranging with a friend to meet the serviceman, the friend offered to call
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
, whom they used before and was very satisfied. The friend called
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
after 8 AM, and was promised service by 11 AM, (I cancelled the appointment with the first service).
The
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
serviceman actually arrived almost a half hour earlier than estimated.
He rapidly diagnosed and repaired the problem, and then waited to assure that the house was warming before he left. The total time on site was about one hour, and the bill was reasonable.
I would definitely use

again.

I'm having to write this review from memory, so I'm not sure how accurate I am with dates and numbers. Also, some of the price, quality and professionalism scores I provided don't mean much, because I don't have enough information to make a judgment about them.
The technician seemed honest and knowledgeable, but I don't know enough about HVAC systems to know if I was taken for a ride or if a $49 special was appropriately raised to $200-ish, but the battery thing sure felt a lot like bait and switch. In 30 years of home ownership, I can't remember ever having to replace a battery in a furnace.
I might hire this company one other time to see if they stick with the "not clean and check," but I'm sufficiently uncomfortable with the visit that I also might not invite them back.

is our long-time HVAC contractor and we have been very happy with them in the past. But the furnace replacement experience was a nightmare. They installed the furnace in early November but it was mid-December before they could get it working properly. It took five visits to repeatedly address the same problems in different ways before they finally dispatched their top installment team. It took those two guys about 90 minutes to find and fix the problems that had been plaguing us for weeks.
Initially, the furnace ran constantly and loudly, both inside and outside the house. It cycled on and off throughout the day, no matter what the temperature setting and it periodically made very loud noises that were capable of waking people up two floors above the furnace.. We immediately called to complain and five days after the installation, the technician came out and replaced the thermostat. We mentioned the fact that the furnace was so loud outside the house that it sounded like we were constantly running a leaf blower, but he wasn't sure he could do anything about the outside noise and since he didn't hear the loud noises we described, he couldn't address those either.
Over the next few weeks, the same technician would return to our house, sometimes with someone else in tow, to take another stab at fixing the problems. He was always polite and friendly, but all of his solutions were temporary, and he frankly seemed to be guessing most of the time. One of the longer fixes (it worked for a couple of weeks) was covering a vent in our return duct with a piece of cardboard. Other "solutions" stopped working within an hour of his departure.

did respond to our every complaint call and everyone was exceedingly polite and apologetic. Often, though, when we gave specific instructions or asked them to call us before showing up (since one of us works full-time from a home office, this was necessary), those requests were ignored. They showed up when they felt like it, without warning.
We tried to talk with the head of the company but he refused to return phone calls or respond to written correspondence. The folks who answer the phone would only give us his first name, which seems a little weird. It remains unclear to us why the problems went unsolved for weeks, other than they weren't taking our issues seriously.

The technician
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very nice and helpful. He examined the A/C unit in the attic, the equipment on the side of the house, and our thermostat/air intake area. Since
Skokie HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
had recently serviced our A/C as part of annual servicing (about a month prior), he waived the service fee for coming out to investigate our issue. He was able to quickly get the A/C working again and took the time to explain what might have caused the issue, in very laymen terms that I could actually understand. He then went on to give me a few tips, like the fact that we were spending way too much money on the expensive air conditioning filters. We don't have pets or allergies and in that scenario, he basically said that if we pay more than $2 for a filter we are paying too much. It's better to get cheaper filters and replace them monthly in order to ensure that our unit is getting sufficient airflow (as the thicker filter may have caused an issue in preventing enough air flow). I was pleasantly surprised that the service fee was waived and that our unit was fixed free of charge, along with getting some really helpful advice and information.
