Skokie HVAC Contractors Reviews
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
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
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.
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.
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.
He mentioned that I needed a new humidifier filter and installed the extra one I had. He pointed out where my heat sensor was wearing out, but didn't pressure me into getting a new one. He was polite, quick & efficient. If I decide to use
When we contacted
The new system is extremely quiet and efficient and as of this date we are very pleased with its performance. "
