Cape May HVAC Contractors from people just like you.

" I realized water heater was broken as a result of no hot water & flooded basement. Called several plumbers, left messages with a few to call me back, some" furnished extremely high estimates & others were not available to come for a couple of days. I found
on Angie's list and reviewed their impressive website and customer reviews. I contacted this company and the owner answered on the first ring. I explained what I needed, he took my number and promised to call back. He called an hour later, obtained the details, my address, told me the price of the job and promised to send technicians out the next morning to install the new water heater. Mr.
called the following morning early to let me know when I could expect his workers.
arrived as promised; both professional & respectful and provided a thorough explanation of the work that was to be performed. After installation, the work area was cleaned and the old heater was removed. I must admit I was completely blown away by this company. There is no comparison to their professionalism, expertise, and great customer service. Payment was not accepted until Mr.
was assured that I was comfortable the job was completed to satisfaction which was very much appreciated.

-Theresa J.

"It went very well, the technician was very thorough, he probably spent around 2 hours inspecting and cleaning our entire A/C system and gave me some tips to help" cut down on our cooling costs. We expected we may need new equipment or some repairs, but after the tune-up everything is running like new.

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 home's heating and cooling systems work more efficiently and last longer by tending to regular maintenance. Some tasks, such as changing the furnace filter, can easily be done by the homeowner.

Angie's Answers

There are many questions to answer before anyone can give you a price for your new system.  It's like calling a dealership and asking how much a new car is.  They need more details, too.

Call a few HVAC contractors in your area and ask for bids to replace your system.  Ask them what they recommend and why.  Then compare apples to apples.  A higher efficiency system will cost you more up front but will save you more on your energy bill.  However, be warned that some of the super high efficiency systems don't typically pay off in savings due to their higher parts and service costs down the road.

Be leary of contractors who quote you prices over the phone or internet without looking at your home.  They may be either inexperienced or will hit you with higher costs once on site due to things they didn't plan for and easily could have if they had just looked at the job in advance.  Many of the big box stores do this with their installation services for all kinds of things.

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.

Assuming you already have an installed units with all ductwork and so forth, small square footage furnace and AC can generally run anywhere form $2000-$5000 for each unit, or about $4000-10000 for a combined unit, depending on ease of installation, etc. This assumes your existing plumbing, electrical, ductwork, etc are directed suitable, so it is merely a matter of cutting  in a new unit and hooking it up. The lowest price would be for a minimally efficient unit, the upper number for highest efficiency.

If you are changing the type of heat (baseboard to forced air or electric to gas, for instance) or installing AC from scratch, then running power, ductwork, etc can up to double that number.

If you live near the coast (and depending on how hot you will let the condo get before cooling kicks in) the cost savings of a high efficiency unit might not pay for itself. Of course, if you are in the San Gabriel Mountains and really need winter heat, or in the Mohave desert or inland valley area and really need serious air conditioning, then a high efficiency unit (which can cost twice as much) might pay for itself in 5-10 years.

Your utility company (companies if gas heat with electric AC) can help with guides on how much your savings might be with different efficiencies, and may have an energy efficiency rebate program for efficient units. Also, the California Energy Commission has information and online calculators for that, as well as rebate programs for energy efficiency. There is also a federal energy efficiency rebate program (though it is generally limited to a tax credit equal to 10% of the cost of energy efficient retrofits, unless it is considered an "alternative energy" system). Pay attnetion to these energy rebate programs - I have a neighbor who, between state and federal program, had the entire cost of his insulation upgrade and furnace/hot wate heater system replacement covered in toto, except for few hundred $ for the initial energy audit. About $8000 in work for about $300, with about $100/month reduction in gas bills.

As always with condo units, check with the condo manager and the bylaws to find out what the rules are - some condos require matching units or installation by a certain contractor for ease of maintenance, and in many condos the heating and AC are actually the responsibility of the condo association or the bylaws require that the association handle the installation but you pay the cost, etc. Also, major work of this type usually has to be coordinated with the condo manager, and there may be time of day limitations on work hours, etc.

And of course make sure your HVAC contractor, if you end up choosing him, is licensed, bonded, insured, and well recommended, and whether any repairs to walls, floors, ceiling etc necessitated by replacing the system are or are not covered in his bid (he would subcontract this out, or more likely tell you that you need a general contractor to supervize plumber, electrician, plasterer, painter, flooring contractor, etc).

Hvac reviews in Cape May


Technician showed up at promised time. Listened to my description of the problem. Allowed me to shadow him while he did the diagnosis. Found the problem and fixed it, then showed me what to check to make sure it didn't happen again.
- Scott B.

The overall score is not an A due to the high cost which was driven quite a bit by the filter they sold me. I'm glad the serviceman noted the filter model number on the invoice.
- Christopher T.

The service tech called ahead of time to provide an estimated arrival time; and he was very punctual. In additional to checking and tuning up the furnace, he checked the All-house humidifier filter and furnace filter. He explained what he did and set expectations. Very polite and professional.
- Cathy B.

Our appointment was at 8 am. The technician was at our door no later than 8:05am.

was prompt, courteous, and informative. He checked out the location of our water heater, returned to his vehicle to get the necessary equipment needed to flush the water heater. He was careful to clean up any spills made during the process. We are very pleased with the service.
- Gwendolyn M.

Technician was prompt and courteous and efficient. Inspected furnace for the winter- appeared to know what he was doing and provided some additional tips regarding our outside equipment (needing to have the weeds trimmed back to assure it would function well). Very satisfied at this time.
- Joe L.

My furnace was very dirty and had been neglected for years. It was letting off a high amount of carbon monoxide. I was prepared to pay for a new system.
Cape May HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
went to work and cleaned it up. When he finished not only was the carbon monoxide within a safe level, he said it was exceptionally low for a system as old as mine. I feel like he was very honest and forthright. He saved me thousands of dollars. Great experience.
- Michelle M.

Ever since we moved into our "new to us" home last winter, the smoke detectors have randomly been triggering false alarms, sometimes at 2 o'clock in the morning. We slowly removed one unit here and there thinking it was just one or two bad alarm units. We were down to just two in the whole house and it didn't feel safe....then it happened again in the middle of the day. We contacted
Cape May HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
's and they scheduled an appointment for the next week. The service technician knew his stuff, quickly diagnosed the circuit (which was not the problem) and recommended replacing all of the smoke detectors. It's been a few weeks now and we haven't had a false alarm. It was a little more expensive than we were expecting but he assured us that if anything goes wrong with the parts, they are covered under warranty for 1 year so we can give him a call and he will take care of any problems. The peace of mind is worth a little extra money.
- Melissa K.

The cost of the gold tune up plan includes two check ups. Signing up for this was about the same as paying for two separate visits plus you get a discount on service and the big thing: priority service. I've had to wait three days with no ac just to have them show up for a diagnosis. I finally insisted that the tech come out to see what the problem was so he could at least order the parts. I had kept getting the " we'll be out tomorrow first thing" then the "well maybe later in the day", then "well the parts stores are closed so why bother coming out today, we'll be out tomorrow" and repeat. Once they did get here though the repairs were quick and inexpensive. They didn't try to gouge or say I needed something I didn't. The up shot is they are very busy as they are a good honest business. They also got out to do the repair before anyone else. Get the service plan so you'll be first in line when an emergency happens.
