Hvac reviews in Shrewsbury


I was ready to purchase two new central A/C units for around $10K and had two guys come by, the first one who did a service call/check to see if we could repair the two systems.
On one, this other guy said that every time the compressor comes on, it trips the circuit breaker. He checked the capacitor and since that is good, then that means that the compressor is gone, and that means a new system.
On the other one, he said that it was out of fluid and that it probably wouldn;t be worth it to replace, considering the leak that must be there, which will only get worse.
The second guy just gave took info and talked about his proposal which would also be around $10.
Then Ed and

came and after I told him the story the first thing he said was "So did they actually check the compressor?" whereupon he had the top off and was poking around inside, where he found a loose wire. So he reconnected the wire and poof - unit 1 is working.
On the next unit he checked the pressure, but the fan inside didn't come on so it wound up we had to fix he blower motor. Did that for $600, plus extra for the other service, for a total of $768.
Needless to say, these guys will be my main vendor now for hvac.

I had several estimates to have air conditioning in our older home. I was a bit frustrated as we had a hard time finding the right contractor. Some never showed up. Some were just arrogant. And most were crazy expensive. We finally called Home Depot to get an estimate and we were referred to ARS.They are an installer for air conditioning for Home Depot in this area. We had a great experience from the initial contact to the quote and the install. We went with a combination of central air and mini-splits. Although it was an expensive project, ARS gave us the best pricing and their service was excellent. We are very happy with the install and would highly recommend ARS.

BUYER BEWARE this company has no problems using parts you purchased an then charging you for them - they send unprepared drivers to complete repairs.
I will never use them again an have warned all my neighbors not to waste their time calling.

I was not told before performing whatever services (which was really just cleaning a tube) how much they would cost. The person who came in to perform the diagnostic service just went ahead and did something and told me only later that there is an additional charge of $200 on top of the Angie's list deal for the fix.

After quoting a price for the visit of $75.00 the company owner,
Shrewsbury HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived at my house and informed me that even though I was quoted $ 75.00 a Major diagnostic was required and it would cost $149.00. It is also important to note that despite allegedly being a trained specialist on my heating system he did not arrive with a service manual and used his smart phone for information. After about 1 hour on the phone with Navien he determined that they would send a warrantied circulator pump and I would only have to pay for the labor to replace the pump. He quoted me a price or $648.00 to replace the pump,as he said it was a considerable amount of work. He further indicated that my heating system was improperly plumbed and the Navien boiler unit was in poor condition and should be replaced. He indicated that a typical installation similar to what I had was around $12,000. It should be noted that the system was installed in September 2010 and was only 3-1/2 years old. He also said that the system was not properly sized. I contacted Navien to determine what they would estimate for time to replace the pump and also spoke with a plumbing supplier and (2) other contractors. The installation time is typically less than an hour. The person I eventually hired did the repair in under 45 minutes and actually showed up with a service manual. I also asked the honest contractor his opinion on the system condition and the overall system design. In his opinion the boiler was in excellent condition, and the system was designed per Navien's specifications. He further added that he's never heard of any contractor recommending replacement on a unit that is still under warranty.
Do not use this contractor, he attempted to charge $648 for a repair that took less than an hour and actually cost $170. He also recommended replacing a 3-1/2 warrantied boiler and associated plumbing that did not need repair at a cost of $12,000. In my opinion he is not a respectable business person.
The only positive from this experience is that the women who work in his office are the nicest people and I hope that they are not aware of the unethical services that he offers.

Excellent! I had the new furnace installed within a week, and it was all completed that day. I even got a call a few days later to make sure everything was running well!
- Maureen S.

We are extremely glad

came to service our boiler. We had a carbon monoxide problem and didn't even know it - how bad would that have been!? They replaced a very old and rusty hot water heater for us, fixed all of the venting, and identified and corrected a problem with our chimney drawing properly. Great job! I like to do things myself, but I could NOT have done this job myself.

Appointment times are flexible and work with my schedule.
They come at the appointed time.
Service is professional and thorough.

The replacement was perfect but the result highlighted other issues in my basement ejector plumbing system which the plumber failed to recognize. I don't fault the plumber for this since the work requirement was completed successfully but I think a more proactive or engaged professional would have found this problem immediately and proposed solutions instead of running out the door as fast as possible.
I'm now on the outs with

over this but I would still recommend them as I have been using them for a long time and never had a problem with their work once I got them on-site.

They were supposed to come at 8 am and came at 820am
Inspected all systems involved, concluded thermostat broken.
Asked if I wanted it replaced. I asked if it was going to cost me more than the standard one, and he said no.
He left his tool bag and went outside. I thought he went out to the car to get a thermostat, turns out he left to I guess a store to get one, came back 1 hour later and installed a new one. All is working. Mechanic left about 945 am.
Was charged 296.22.
2 and 1/2 hours of labor....245.00
materials 43.50
Fuel 25.00 (I live 3 miles from the home depot)
tax 2.72

? who was annoyed said " they have been doing this for 50 years" and he would knock off 1/2 hour of labor. Even when I pointed out to him that as we spoke we were still not at the 2 and 1/2 hour

. And the mechanic had left 30 minutes ago. No response.
I have a problem with the following:
1. They arrived late and then they charged me for that time.
2.I was charged for 2 and 1/2 hours when in reality He was here for 1 and 1/4 hour.
3. I think they should have been more upfront and said they were going to the store and were going to add charges for fuel and time.
4. I think the manager could be more responsive to a paying customer. I don't think any business should justify their charges "because its been done for 50 years".
