"I contacted
about diagnosing a problem with a boiler that had been installed 4 years ago by another contractor. Had used
" on another job and was satisfied. Talked to
a few times explaining the situation but when it came time to schedule an appointment I couldn't get in touch with him or get him to return a call. Even told receptionist to have someone call me if
was no longer interested in the job so I could move on to another company. Didn't even get this little courtesy. I wasted a whole week without heat because of this guy. It's now Friday and will have to wait til Monday to get service. If you don't mind paying a premium (prices are high) to deal with an arrogant, unprofessional staff, this is the company for you. The technical staff is quite good though.

"
& Son was extremely helpful in restoring our home's air conditioning system. They came almost immediately after my initial phone" call (this is the first time we have used this company), had a uniformed serviceman come, and identified the problem in less than an hour. He was very courteous, very helpful in explaining options, and took care to keep the home clean (wore protective "booties"). The air conditioner was low on coolant. The serviceman cleaned the filter (it is a washable type, permanent filter), located & fixed the leak, and restored the unit to working condition. As a result of the amount of dust on the filter, which is cleaned each month, we scheduled a full house duct cleaning for the next day. This was performed with equal satisfaction, and the house is back to normal. We are so pleased with this company that we will now use
& Son as our regular service company.

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.

Most homeowners aren’t keen on cutting into drywall to redesign the duct system, but there are simple ways to make your entire home cool and comfortable. (Photo courtesy of Homesense Heating and Cooling)
Heating & A/C

It's true - heat rises. Don't let your second floor succumb to high temperatures this summer.

Checking the refrigerant levels of your A/C is important, but if there is a leak, you might consider buying a new unit sooner than later. (Photo by Brandon Smith)
Heating & A/C

The cost of Freon is expected to skyrocket in the next few years as the EPA phases out this common A/C refrigerant. What are companies charging for R-22?

If you can find a contractor who offers A/C sealant leak, it should only be used as a short-term fix.

what should you pay.  You pay what you can afford.  1100sqft unit requires a min. of a two ton unit.  prices range from 2100-2900 depending upon the seers of the system.  13 seer is the min. the law requires  and for your situation with 1100 sqft.  do not worry about the seers as long as it is to code.  the bigger the house the more seers for economy.  1100 sqft is at the border line for a two ton system.  It is more important to have your new system balance, there is where you get the economy on your electric bill and gas.  Bryant, lenox, ruud and carrier are the brands you should stay with.All have the same basic factory warrantee and will last you longer than you expect as long as you maintain it with regular check ups twice a year once in the spring and then in the fall.

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.

YOU.
You bought the home after an inspection that told you there were issues?
Every state has different laws regarding home purchases, contact your real estate agent to find out what remedies may apply.
THIS IS EXACTLY why you hire QUALIFIED and LICENSED contractors.

great, they showed up on time (difficult, given parking in
Washington DC HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
Circle), cleaned up after themselves, and explained the system. They had to bring a crane to get the unit off of the roof, and since I live in a 3rd floor walk-up the poor guys has to traipse up and down the stairs and fire escape to lug stuff around. I only interacted with

and

(there was another guy), and they were both GREAT.

even helped me pull out my incredibly heavy ac window units! I used my angieslist coupon to get 200 off. I'm not sure if I should give the price an A, since it was way more expensive than I had anticipated, but i never got an in-person estiate, so what do I know. The heat is working spectacularly which I am grateful for since I've spent the last 3 days with no heat and last night got down to 40 degrees in my room. Great job, guys!

It was an excellent experience. They did a very good job. They came promptly, diagnosed the problem, and repaired it. It is working just fine.

Office response (to phone calls) was invariably helpful. Initial service work was started on time, within three days of call for service. Replacement installation was scheduled within one week (which included a national holiday). Work started as scheduled and was carried out competently and with a minimum of mess. Crew stayed extra time in the evening to finish the job in one day. Final price was lower than initial estimate. New system works fine!

Final results are excellent, but there were major delays at various points, and Argent was not good about letting me know in good time --I often found out only when I called to ask why a deadline or appointment was not kept. Initial installation of one unit was faulty - it was rectified within a week, but still annoying.

The process went well from start to finish. The service call was placed on Thursday evening with a slot provided for the next day. The technician (
