"Fantastic experience. Showed up on time and provided several options to choose from in different price points (regular water heaters through tankless) went with" the tankless option since we've been considering it for a while. They showed up the next day and didd the installation and removal of the old one. Very clean installation and courteous, professional service. I'm using them again for additional work.

"There was never a confirmation on the appointment date or time. They just showed up at my home and sat in the van for about 10 minutes until I opened the door for" my child to go outside and catch the bus. I believe it was February 20th. From there::::: TERRIBLE!!!!!! No service guy showed up... Only a dude trying to get more money out of me. Created an estimate that wasn't even the actually service I needed completed. Horrible experience. NEVER AGAIN. AND he left trash on my front porch. I have the pictures to prove it. Remove this company from your listing so no one else gets screwed out of hard earn money. I feel that I deserve a complete refund!

Hiring an HVAC service

The awkward-to-pronounce acronym stands for "heating, ventilation and air conditioning" which in many respects are completely different processes.

HVAC Maintenance

You can help your heating and cooling systems work more efficiently and last longer by tending to regular maintenance. Some things, like changing the furnace filter, can easily be done by the homeowner.

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!

?
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.
?
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!




?
I'd rate them equal,or close,as with several other brands. I'd be more concerned about the difference in installation and service down the road. Difficult to determine the difference ,but asking for detailed info about their installation,may convince you to choose one over the other.

The Dept. of Energy states that poor installations can cause a 30% efficiency loss! Plus with Gas their are saftey issues,venting properly etc.,and of couse the need for a "low Level" Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
?
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.

They ordered and picked up equipment and told me that they would be at our house about 10a. The techs came on time, and were done completely within two hours time. Our tech Dusty checked everything over before the company left. Everything was removed and cleaned up. It was a good experience. They were very competent, and friendly.
It was cold doing those particular days, and we are so Thankful that we now have heat.

OJ came in and went to work on my furnace. He showed my how dusty it was inside of the furnace based on the sanding i was doing in the basement. We changed out the filter after he completely cleaned out the inside of the furnace.
He explained every step and measurement and assured me that my furnace was running well. We explained how the whole house humidifier works and that i could have that installed any time. I didn't depend on the current furnace.
Very happy with OJ and

Apline Air is great. I used them 3 years ago when all the air conditioners at my office were stolen. They were prompt, courteous, professional and excellent to work with. When my home AC needed attention I called Apline and they responded and were out the same day. I would have recommended them to other companies and will use them for all my AC work in the future.

The Service provider called me 30 minutes before the arrival time to inform me of his impending arrival. He arrived on time and immediately diagnosed the issue. The issue was caused by a faulty sensor, that had calcification on it. This was causing the sensor to provide false reading about heat rectification, causing the fireplace to perform a auto shutdown.
The service provider cleaned up the calcification and cleaned up the "extra crispy" stones and chips. He also added some extra stones and chips for a additional cost of $26. While the additional cost was a surprise, he was happy to offer a rebate for AngiesList customers. The quality of the work and attention to detail (e.g. Shape of Flame) by the service provider was well worth the cost.
The fireplace is working great now and does not shutdown unless i switched it off. I was extremely impressed by the professionalism and details provided by the service provider and will happily hire them again without hesitation.

I found that my house was lacking in air returns, which, in a house where doors are often closed resulted in less-than-ideal cooling. I had
New Buffalo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
install a new air return in my office which cost $300. The came promptly, and did good work. Feeling happy with the work done, I also had them quote out three new returns for bedrooms all on the same side of the house. They initially quoted quite high, but I got them down to a still high $1000 even. They again did good work. However, I felt less satisfied with the price offered given the first run was longer, and in a tighter space. All-in-all I'm really happy with the work, and any additional money paid will probably not be a factor in the long run.

I called at 8:45PM on Saturday 2/28/2015 and got the after hours dispatcher. The Metheson technician called me back at approximately 9:00PM and indicated that he was on a job, but was wrapping it up and would be able to get to my home in about 15 min. He told me that the emergency service call would be $137 plus parts and labor. He arrived promptly 15 min later as promised. It took him a couple of minutes to determine that the gas valve was sticking. A light tap on the valve got it unstuck and the furnace was back in operation. He didn't have a replacement valve, but informed me that he could have one on Monday if I was willing to put a 50% deposit on the part. The price of the valve was $572. Since the furnace was old and I intended to replace it soon anyway I asked him about replacement. He stated that if I put the deposit down and decided to replace the furnace that the price of the service call and the deposit would just be put toward the new furnace. After a bit more discussion, I elected to opt out of ordering a replacement valve because I didn't want to be committed to any particular course of action. I wanted to keep my options open so I happily paid the $137 for the emergency service call and the knowledge that I could lightly tap on the valve to buy myself some time. I gave the technician my contact information and a
New Buffalo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
sales rep called me promptly on Sunday and I set up an appointment for Wednesday the 3rd to get a quote on a furnace replacement.
I had to tap on the valve early this morning (Monday 3/2/2015) and I'm sure I'll have to tap on it many more times, but at least I know what the problem is. I'm not concerned about it getting stuck while I'm at work because I have an internet connected thermostat that I installed in November, so I can keep an eye on it and make a run back to home before anything freezes up, so I can afford to take my time and weigh my options.
I've had
New Buffalo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
repair this furnace 2 times in the time I've owned the home (I bought the house new in 1996 and furnace is original
New Buffalo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
-cheapo builder's model manufactured in 1995). The first time was for an igniter that took out the furnace controller back in 2007. In that case, the old igniter was basically melted and caused a short circuit that burned up the controller (the circuit board was scorched where the igniter was connected). The 2nd time was to replace the blower fan where I found that one of the impeller blades had come loose and was rattling really bad. I called
New Buffalo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
on the phone and told them what I found and they ordered the replacement blower and I scheduled the installation a couple days later.
New Buffalo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
has always given me great service, so I can't complain, but I always remain skeptical as a mostly DIY guy, and this occasion was no different since $572 seemed like a lot of money for a gas valve. I decided to see if I could find a replacement valve online. I found that the valve is obsolete, and there were used replacements available for cheap (like $100), but the pictures showed they still had the dirt and grime that was on them when they were removed from wherever it was. No thanks. I found an update kit for the valve that was $399 and appeared to require parts to be removed from the old valve and installed on the update kit. No thanks. So, I was at least able to confirm that $572 was not an unreasonable price for this particular obsolete replacement valve.
All in all, I'm very happy with
New Buffalo HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
. They've never tried to rip me off and they've always been fast to respond to emergency service. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a good deal on a new furnace and be able to tell another good story because I don't want to spend $572 + labor on this old furnace.
