"Another Heating and A/C company said we needed a new furnace due to an cracked igniter and that it would take days to get a new igniter. I called
" to get a second opinion. He called me back promptly and gave me a second opinion, this was crucial because it was the coldest night of the winter. After looking at the furnace he found that we didn't need a new system but just a new igniter. He came back later that night, installing it and rather than having a purchase a new furnace we had a much more affordable option. Extremely please with
's customer service and integrity, am recommending
's Heating and A/C to all my friends.

was really great. He was on time and didn't make a mess of my house (lots of snow that day) and did a nice job cleaning and evaluating" my furnace system. I liked his honesty and a glad he didn't try a sales pitch. Told me that my older unit was still viable and not to run out to replace it at this time. Even followed up later via email with a question I had. I would definitely hire him again.

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.

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.

First winter event in the area, and my heat decided to go out. I called and was told someone would be available that morning. The technician called me within the hour to let me know he was on his way. He determined that the circuit board was bad, so he had to go get the part. I was very impressed with his timing and responsiveness considering that the roads were slick due to snow/ice. He was very professional, and explained everything to me as he went. Would definitely use them again.

The next morning, the service tech. arrived as scheduled. He tested everything and found the cause of the compressor shutdown. Since I wasn't able to be there, I asked if he would call me. So, before he left our office, he called to tell me what he had found, which was a minor issue, and made a recommendation to replace a part in the near future. Since we have the service contract, his diagnostic visit was $20.00 cheaper.
Another thing I like about this company is they'll bring in one of their specialists from their staff to help problem-solve or suggest further solutions. Their office staff is Golden! They are efficient and dependable as well as patient. The company has a great scheduling system and feedback forms. And the techs wear booties over their shoes--a big deal with all the sand and water they are not tracking into our house! I recommend them without hesitation.

Repair was successful. Cost was $50 more than Nick initially told me. So I paid $176 for a $10 capacitor. I would have replaced that capacitor myself if Nick had told me accurate total cost. However Nick was very friendly and helpful otherwise.
The furnace had another failure that would have cost $385 if

replaced the part but only cost $119 because I did the

I purchased this Angie's list deal to have my furnace inspected to make sure everything was clean and in working order. The technician was punctual and arrived on time. When he first looked at my machine, he said that "it's one of those machines" and then he mentioned that they tend to have cracks in the heat exchanger. I stood with him while he got settled and started working on the machine. I walked away for about 3 minutes and he called me back to the furnace and asked me to come take a look. When I arrived, he asked me to put my hand inside one of the open compartments and feel the crack he discovered. I did as asked, but to me it felt like a seam where two duct pieces came together next to an curved molding. He told me that is the crack and because he found it he had to shut my furnace off and I couldn't use it. ***Please note that this was at 8am on a Friday with snow on the ground and falling temperatures.*** The short story is that he documented "multiple cracks in heat exchanger through limit on the left and right side. He then began to price out the cost of a new furnace to replace my existing system. Later that day, I called to schedule the installation of the new system the following week. I decided to get a second opinion and cancelled the install. Luckily, I have a friend that works on HVAC systems and he came prepared with a camera (the
Willmar HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
tech did not use a camera or at least he didn't show me a camera). When my friend arrived, I showed him the location of the "crack" found by the
Willmar HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
tech and when he used the camera, there was no crack. Just as I thought, the image showed the curved molding of the system. He continued to look in other areas of the system, taking out the large fan at the bottom (which the
Willmar HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
tech did not do) and he even vacuumed my system because that was also not done by the tech. In the end, he said the system was old, but was fine to operate. My recommendation is to beware of misleading information, make sure your tech has camera to show you the actual issues with your system, and get a second opinion if you are dealing with

I purchased a hot water heater flush & inspection using and Angieslist coupon.
At first I tried to schedule it through the angieslist website. Got no response from the company. Then I emailed them a couple times still with no response. I called, they answered promptly, and scheduled it for 8 am the following Monday. I was shooting for 8am so I'd be the first visit of the day with a better

to get to work at a reasonable time. The serviceman showed up a little late, but not too bad. He tried to upsell me on an expansion tank for my water heater, which I don't think is necessary for my setup, at least based on what I read online. Having said that he was knowledgeable, courteous, and did a good job. I definitely did get my $75 worth.

I woke up to get ready for work and the house was cold. When I turned up the thermostat nothing happened. I called around 7:20 AM and a real person answered the phone. The person on the phone had me try a few things and then he told me a tech would be out between 10 AM and noon (same day). The tech was at my house at 10 AM.
The tech didn't have the part with him on the truck but he explained that my furnace (
Willmar HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
) didn't use universal parts. He made some phone calls and told me the part was at a place about 45 minutes away but he could get it for me today. As promised the part was picked up and I had heat later that day.
The tech was professional, courteous, and pleasant. I also liked that he had his ID badge clipped to his collar which made it easy to see.

After sizing and estimating the needed capacity of the system he schedule an installation. He and two techs scheduled a follow up to install the system(s). They were precise and very meticulous in the way the system was installed as our house is older and has a funny layout. The systems functioned perfectly and we have been using them to both cool in the summer and heat in the spring and fall. Our Oil usage has gone down and our electric usage has also been reduced by removing three window AC units. Followup calls have been made to tune the systems as well as any warranty services.
