Hvac Reviews in Columbia


Something of a saga - AC was patchy early in the summer so I took advantage of a Big Deal to schedule a tune up with
& Heating. All scheduled and thought we were set. Within a couple of days, the AC stopped working completely and we had to ask them to come out as a service call instead. Our tech diagnosed rusty coils - easy for us to see too and suggested we not bother throwing money away on replacing ALL the freon as it would likely just leak again. He scheduled for someone to come out and quote a new system for us and left, apologizing for not being able to do more.
We ended up getting four quotes for different manufacturers and after a lot of research, decided that AP&C was the best for us. Not the cheapest, but in terms of what we were getting and when we'd start to see a return for the high efficiency units we were looking at, they made the most sense. (They weren't the most expensive either!). We liked
, who gave the quote. He kept in touch with us via email (my preference - work schedules make it difficult to talk on the phone during the day) and when he made a mistake in one of the options he quoted, made good in another area that made the more expensive system slightly less of a shocker. He also let us know about the increase in BG&E rebates about a week before BG&E alerted customers so great to know he was keeping track of that and we got an extra $300 in rebates, which also helped lower the price.
The installation took almost the whole day but the two techs couldn't have been more professional. They wore shoe covers and laid down a floor covering to protect our carpets. I think they took a break for lunch but they were so quiet that it was hard to tell. It was about 86 degrees in the house and incredibly humid. When they finished in the afternoon, they took time to run through how to work the thermostat and made sure they had answered any questions I had. I was just thrilled to see the temperature down at 83 degrees and still dropping!
I can't recommend AP&C enough - everyone we have dealt with has been friendly, helpful and taken time to talk to us and answer all our questions.

From when I called late Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning when our AC issue was resolved,
exemplified all that a business should. I called Saturday and explained our issue. Our AC was running, but no cold air.
was who I spoke with on the phone and she, very patiently, walked me through some initial troubleshooting steps. She said to try those fixes and if the situation did not improve overnight to call her at 8am Sunday morning. When Sunday came with little improvement, I called
and she scheduled a service call for that morning. She and
arrived promptly at the time they said and immediately got to work. They encountered a small
with our system, were able to figure out a work-around, and from there diagnose, repair and test a solution. With a capacitor replaced, our AC was again working.
then took the time to provide some additional tips to ensure we cool our house efficiently--
even replaced a missing bolt on our fence gate! Other companies in the area should take note of how these two go about their business. A couple minutes on the phone, patience with newer homeowners, and excellent service have earned them a customer in the future and an advocate for their company. We will definitely be referring
and Cooling to our friends in the area. Thank you!

There was scheduling problems in the beginning. Namely, I was promised same day service to fix a freon leak and re-charge, but my appointment never made it to the schedule. I was rescheduled for the next day. Due to the heat wave, there were a lot of calls for similar problems and I was rescheduled again. Finally, I was assigned a tech, almost 5 days after my initial call.
The delays were a little annoying. The first one was due to incompetence on the part of their answering service. The second, though longer delay because of the weekend, was completely understandable. The recent heat-wave made certain calls more important than mine--like those serving the elderly.
Finally, a

technician arrived:

. He was a very nice gentleman and, despite having already worked a rather long day, diagnosed and repaired my air conditioning system quickly, efficiently, and professionally. Having the problem fixed right, the first time, was definitely worth waiting a few days for service.

Provided a pipe opening to help clean the pipes regularly, replaced the filter and set the dampeners correctly to efficiently cool the house. They arrived ahead of time, checked the thermostat, the external cooling unit and all the a/c vents to make sure the system was fixed properly. Very knowledgeable & honest. Highly recommended.

The technician who performed this work was extremely diligent. I
explained the work he was doing and showed me the 'before & after
results'. Very pleased with the work performed!

On short notice they came out and installed the new system that I did not buy from them. No one else I called wanted to do the job because we "did not buy the new equipment from them". They relaimed the R22 from the old system, dismantled it and took that away. They installed a new 4ton

condensor out side, a new matching Gooman evaporator coil in the existing air handler, along with the new line set and an electrical disconnect box out side that did not exist for the old 22 year old system.
They were on time, did great work and I could not be happier with the results.
We had used these guys before for furnace repairs and a recharge of the old AC unit. They have always been great and their prices fair.

We discovered our A/C was blowing out warm air and I immediately got out my Ipad and turned to Angies list because we were expecting housegusts in just a few days. I sent a message thru the site on email and they called us back promptly first thing the next morning. We were able to set an appointment for a couple days later but were still nervous because it was on a Friday and we worried the work might not be done before our guests' arrival. The technician showed up right when scheduled and did a little sleuthing, popped open the unit outside and found a wire which had shorted out. He gave us a very reasonable estimate, fixed the part and was on his way inside of an hour leaving us to finally relax in our nice cool house! Very prompt, efficient and reasonable service, so much so that we inquired about a yearly maintenance contract with them. Highly recommend this company.

I called on Wednesday at about 12. They tried unsuccessfully to get a tech out here that afternoon. Since I was not going to be here on Thursday, I asked for someone to come out on Friday afternoon. They suggested between 1:00 and 3:00. He came on Friday at about 3:15.
He certainly knew what he was doing. in about 1/2 an hour,

installation.AH&C has serviced my HVAC since they installed furnace/air conditioner/heat pump in 2002. Other than sometimes having a challenge on scheduling visits, they have done an excellent job maintaining our HVAC for the past 14 years. The advantage of their gold service contract is that it covers all semi-annual visits as well as a reduction in costs of any replaced equipment.
