Hvac reviews in Washington


The high velocity AC system was installed in mid 2013. Exactly one year and a month later, in the middle of a warm week the system stopped working. I called the service line and left a message for "emergency service". No one called me back. The next day I took time of work, called them again at which point someone was sent over. They informed me that there was a hole in coil. They repaired the hole. The system worked for another month and then stopped working yesterday. I called them again and they sent someone in the evening. I was informed that the patch they did was not sufficient and they also had most probably had put in excess freon which caused the system to stop working (this was what the technician told me). The technician told me that they would have to replace the coil. I called the office next day (since no one got back to me in the morning), and got through to

who informed me that the coil would take a week to be custom made (really?) and so the system will be repaired in approximately 2 weeks. Yes, so for the next couple of weeks, in the middle of summer I will have to move my dogs and baby to a hotel if it get unbearable. They have offered to bring me window units for me to install in the house.
The bottom line is if I spend $26,500 I expect to have a unit that is not going to blow up in one year ! I had a simmilar unit installed by another company in Baltimore which has been running for 7 years without any problems. I believe
Washington HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
should have replaced this unit, without trying to replace these defective parts.
I will NEVER recomend this company to anyone. Additionally I had planned to put AC in the basement unit of my house and I will make sure to use another more trustworthy company, and not

Scheduling the appointment was easy, and we also appreciated the reminder call from
Washington HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
before the service date.
Washington HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
and colleague called when en route so we could time our meet up. They were timely, friendly but professional, cleaned and serviced the fireplace after installing the new part, and made sure we knew how to properly operate the gas fireplace (it is an older model and hadn't been used in years). They also made sure to point out the importance of installing a CO detector and advised on placement.

Everyone who came to my condo were complete professionals.

were all polite, well-spoken and very open to what I wanted and how I wanted to go about it. This might seem like minutia, but trust me: it is incredibly refreshing to have people who are easy to talk to and willing to listen.
I am certain that I will be using them for any work related to this field in the future. Scheduling with them was a breeze, both groups were right on time, and they even called when they were on their way over to the condo. I'm eager to get started!

It went extremely well. I got a confirmation call and the provider showed up in the window of time and completed the work. Our cental air is working perfectly

Great company! The price was great and they were very responsive and walked me through the process
along the way. When something didn’t work they didn’t waste any time researching and figuring out the best way to retrofit
something into my old condo. I am a residential architect who deals with contractors and subcontractors all of the
time and would highly recommend these guys to any of my clients!

arrived on time and performed several inspections on my AC unit, Including refrigerant charge, compressor amps,
.temp readings, air flow pressure, motor amp readings and several other test. He advised me on several areas of my AC system and was extremely thorough. I was very impressed by his professionalism and knowledge. I would be confident to use

and Sons for any future issues I may have.

I bought the Angie's List special for a whole house plumbing inspection & hot water flush. I received a prompt response to my email inquiry about scheduling and a confirmation email. I was pleased to receive a reminder call on Saturday and another call on Monday morning to let me know the technician was en route.
The technician checked faucets, toilets and the shut-off valve. He took a look at a pipe on the 2nd floor which my handyman said had a leak. There was no leak initially so the technician said he would flush the water heater and then return to inspect the pipe on the second floor (while I left the water running on the second floor).
The technician asked me to sign the waiver for the hot water heater flush (due to its age) and review his report. The report mentioned the washing machine and noted it had a gray hose. I signed the report. While he was finishing with the water heater, I asked about water under the washing machine. The technician said the draining hose was too short so there was splashing when it drained. He said it might be possible to get an extender but he wasn't sure it would fit.
I asked a few more questions about the washing machine and the technician admitted he had not actually checked it. He assumed it was a gray hose based on the model. He said there was a $150 charge to pull the stacked washer/dryer away from the wall to check the hose because he would have to get the handcart from the van. I said I thought it was included in the inspection deal, but he said the person who wrote that didn't know what kind of washers customers have, The technician offered to call the office to have the charge waived, which I confirmed that I would like him to do. He put me on the phone with his manager who said they would not waive the charge, even after I explained that the technician included an assumption in his report. The manager said he could ask the technician to remove that reference in the report, which I said NOT to do as I wanted proof that they included assumptions in what was supposed to be a factual report. He said he would speak to the technician as assumptions should not be included in the report. He also said it was a two-man job to move the washer & dryer - which the technician never mentioned when he said he'd have to get the handtruck out of his van in order to check the washing machine hose.
After we hung up, the technician informed me that there would be a charge to look at the upstairs pipe. I asked why I wasn't told that earlier, and he said he worked on commission.
I was planning to use
Washington HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
for the installation of a water pressure regulator (especially with the $50 credit included in the Angie's List deal) but am uncomfortable using them after:
(a) the technician included an assumption in his report rather than checking the hose
(b) I was told there was a $150 charge to inspect my washing machine hose even though it is listed as #6 in the list of what is included in the whole house plumbing check. The fine print makes no mention of the possibility of an additional charge to check the washing machine hose based on the type of washer.
(c) The technician initially told me he would check the leaking pipe on the second floor, and then AFTER I spoke to his manager, decided there would be a charge. This was clearly retribution for complaining to his manager that he included an assumption in his report.

Things went really well. Price and availability were fantastic- also pleased with the workmanship. I had

and his co-worker do another job at the same visit (cleaning out a 35 year old boiler). Also went really well.

took the time to explain (and show) what all was done. Have jobs lined up with them in the coming weeks and definitely recommend them.

We really liked this experience. One of their technicians,
Washington HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
, came by. He did a more than excellent job. Our motor was flooded and we also needed a new thermostat. He installed a condensate line, replaced the motor, installed the new
Washington HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
Lyric, and refilled our refrigerant, among other things.
I appreciated the most that he did everything in a few hours. He was able to call someone from the company and have them deliver the parts (e.g. Lyric) that we hadn't initially requested and weren't in his truck. He stayed until the job was completely done.
Excellent technician, excellent company. I would highly recommend!!

I had a $50 coupon for $100 worth of service. I called
them to tune-up a toilet that was working and flushing, but maybe could fill a
bit more quickly. ARS (who really is the authorized repair company for this
deal) came over and quoted me a price of $460 USD to replace the innards of
this standard toilet. Trust me - a new "Complete Toilet Repair Kit"
cost $19.98 at HomeDepot.com. (Look it up yourself.) I could do this work in
20min and I suppose a professional plumber could do it in 10min. If they did
the work, there was still no guarantee that the toilet would fill more quickly.
I just went to HomeDepot and did the work myself. I still had
to pay them $59.95 for their visit - because the coupon only applies IF they
actually perform the work - which they did not in my case. I still have this
stupid coupon which is worthless because if ARS is doing work for you then you
are by definition being ripped off substantially. Everyone was professional and
well rehearsed on the scam.
I wonder why the coupon says

Services and the service provider is someone else - ARS - and that is only in the fine print details????
