"Every phase of the project was great from start to finish. The salesperson,
, was knowledgeable and quoted a price at the initial consultation." We wanted maximum heating, so he designed a system to provide that. Before signing the contract we made a visit to their
showroom to see the product. Receptionist was very helpful and set us up quickly with a staff member who took us through the installation process and showed us the product we were considering. He also gave us literature that described the product with specs, which we needed as we were having a cover built to support this system. Scheduling was easy and they were able to install as soon as our patio cover was completed. Installation was done in just a few hours, and installers were professional. The project was completed in mid September and extended our swim season with comfort until Oct. 31, which is when they recommend draining the system for the winter. We would definitely us them again.

"It was difficult to schedule the appointment with the office, no calls back. But the service team that came (on-timne) did a great job and were very helpful describing" how to care for the fireplace. Very good service.

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.

Rusty came over on an emergency call, Saturday morning-Valentines Day, and was here within a couple hours of our call, and exactly at the time he promised. Quickly diagnosed the problem, made the furnace work temporarily while he obtained parts which took a few days, and saved us from freezing temperatures on a Holiday weekend (President's Day & Valentines Day). Charged us a fair price and only upon completion of work.
Last Summer he repaired our pool heater and was also fair, prompt, and knowledgeable. He had the circuit board needed with him based on my verbal description of the issue, and completed the job on the first visit. While he was here I showed him a problem with our houses AC freezing up and he has a solution for us that we will implement this coming Spring. Best of all he detected a gas leak from a punctured line in the basement, repaired it immediately, and probably saved our home from a major disaster in doing so.
Highly recommended!!!!

They diagnosed the problem to be a faulty thermostat and wanted additional $298 to replace. A new water heater costs about the same. I told them I would replace it myself. Cost of replacement thermostat $15 at Home Depot and took about 20 minutes.

Very nice people both on the phone and in person. Clear about costs, even tried to save me money by telling me I could insulate the pipe myself (had him do it anyway since he was here). Did not treat me like I had "stupid" written across my head (it seems like as a woman, I get that A LOT from the service men in this area). Will most definitely use this company again.

Excellent work. I needed a new AC system because the old one used a freon that had been phased out (previous company didn't

had done a great job repairing the old system so I definitely called him for a new one. He installed a unit that was right for the house size (previous system was too small and did a lousy job cooling), added a 2nd intake vent in the ceiling (looks great), installed a digital thermostat (previous company said wasn't effective), completed all the work in one day and cost me 25% LESS than the previous company. we've now used the system for 6 months through really hot and really cold days and it could not be better. Needless to say, I highly recommend

The visit was fabulous! The reason I called

originally was for a second opinion. Another provider had come to my house to inspect my AC unit and told me that my circuit board was fried, I had a leak, and the unit needed to be replaced. They charged me over $400 (which was the "value" rate) to re-charge the system, and

rigged the wiring to make it so only the heat worked. When the

electrician showed up, he correctly evaluated the system, spent extra time fixing all of my wiring both in the outside unit and upstairs in my air unit, and serviced the heating part of the outside unit. He was courteous and friendly, and most importantly FIXED my heat and AC without having to replace the unit. There were no issues with the circuit board!! Thank you to the entire
