"The guy who came was great. He showed me inside the furnace and explained everything. He did not mind me asking him very detailed questions and he gave very elaborate answers. He also" looked at my humidifier and found that it had no filter. The previous owners left it without a filter. Fortunately we did not have any water leaks since we had started to use the heat and humidifier was on.

The Angie's List Guide to Winter Maintenance

It's the time of year when the winter weather can take a toll. Follow this winter maintenance checklist to protect your home, your car and your health.

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.

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.

I was very pleased with the service. They responded quickly to my request for service through Angie's List. The technician was professional and did a thorough check of the system. Pleased with the service, I signed up for their twice a year maintenance plan.

On Sunday my hot water heater started leaking and so I thought, no big deal, I'll buy a new one through home depot and have them install it. Called on Monday and discovered that
Carbondale HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
is the contractor they use for installation. They wouldn't give me any pricing on the phone but said they would be there between 8 - noon to give me an estimate. At 11:45 I got a call that they were on the way. They explained that there were certain things that had to be brought up to code and that they would also have to check my water pressure and if it was over 65 they would also have to install something to bring down the water pressure. They didn't show me the gage where they tested my pressure so I'm not even sure this is true but they said it was at 100 and so the total for installing the $350 hot water heater would be $2000. I almost fell for it because my house was flooding from the leak and I wanted to get it fixed as soon as possible but was informed that they couldn't do the actual installation until the next day. I'm very grateful for that because it gave me time to call around and discover that their quote was $1000 more than everyone elses. I talked with Texas Water Heaters who were great and they explained that I didn't need the water pressure thing because the city no longer enforced that part of the code. Unfortunately they weren't able to come until Sunday (and how amazing is it that they were willing to come do the job on a sunday without charging extra) but I've been without water for two days and I just couldn't wait that long. I called
Carbondale HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
plumbing who can come tomorrow and basically gave me the same price as Texas Water Heaters so i will be using them.
Then I remembered that several years ago i had a leak in my yard and ARS Rooter Service came out and gave me an estimate for that job which was also ridiculous. They wanted $300 to dig a hole to look for the leak. They told me often they had to dig 3 holes (@ $300 a piece) before they would find the leak so we were already up to $900 with no repairs included. I called
Carbondale HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
plumbing back then and he said I charge $80 an hour, it usually takes me 1 & 1/2 hours for a job like that. He came out and fixed the leak and that's exactly what he charged me so I feel very comfortable that they will be installing my new water heater. Maybe ARS only pulls this stuff when they come out and it's a woman. I don't know but I think Home Depot should find a more honest company to handle their installations. I know I won't be buying anything else from them.

An appointment was scheduled for the home visit to provide an estimate for a new central air system. I received an email the day before asking us to move the appointment which we accommodated the request. The day before the re-scheduled appointment I received a confirmation email but saying they had to push back the arrival time about an hour. An hour and a half (approx) I received yet another email asking us to push the appointment back yet another hour or so. Then we waited and waited. No call, no show. We had other appointments that evening and couldn't wait at the house any longer and had to leave. Although it's only a day later at the time of posting this review, I still have yet to receive an apology or even an attempt to re-schedule for the 3rd time.
It seems this company has a difficult time managing their time. It is good we learned that up front before hiring them.

Our house was built in 1955 with an oil furnace. We changed to a gas furnace/system a few years ago using all the
same ductwork. This was the first time the duct system has been cleaned. The 2 guys examined all the ducts & did a thorough
job with their cleaning & vacuuming system. They also checked all the ducts for condition/stability, after 55 years of use.
They were on time, efficient, meticulous about not making a mess & professional ...job well done.

Our 15 year old Trane heat pump wasn’t working properly
anymore I called
Carbondale HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
A/C to come out and check it out. It was shot and wasn’t economically feasible to
repair the old unit. They gave me an
honest cost to replace it. I contacted
some competitive companies that were much higher in price, so I went with
Summit.
The technicians arrived as scheduled for 9 Am and started
promptly. The laid down several drop
cloths to protect my tile flooring and carpeted areas. They worked on the replacement for six hours
and the unit runs great. The replacement
unit is a
Carbondale HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
pump unit outside and a Carrier air handler in the attic. It comes with a 10 year parts warranty and a
1 year labor warranty. A 5 year and 10
year labor warranty is available at a nominal fee.
The work was done professionally and quietly. The techs were very professional and courteous. I was overall, very pleased with the whole experience
and would definitely recommend them to anyone one else needing this type of
work done.
Another note, the
Carbondale HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
and Carrier systems are made here
in the USA and other units are not; you may want to check this before committing
to other brands.
