Reviews in Boston for Central AC Repair

AFire & Ice HVAC LLC
My central ac stopped working on Sunday afternoon when the temp was 93 degrees. He was at my house within the hour and fixed the problem (broken capacitor) within 20 minutes. He also offered to check and replace our air filters and offered his professional opinion on a broken pipe outside our house. He was professional, polite, and prompt. Would definitely use again!

Danny came out and gave us an estimate on our non functioning furnace as well as our old central a/c. . He took the time to explain what was wrong, what was needed and different options we could take. He was very polite and explained the current rebates available . He took more of an interest in us than the others who came out. His price was better and the equipment he was replacing it with was better than the others.. The installation went fine and we are very happy.

Ideal Air HVAC came by promptly to diagnosis my Central Air conditioner. They are able to root cause the problem which is a broken/malfunction compressor. They promise to get back to me with a proposal on the repair after consult with the manufacturer. Unfortunately, they never get back to me. I contacted them 4 times. Each time, they promised me they would get back to me but never did. Also, their diagnostic fee is higher than others. Base on my experience, I would not recommend this vendor. Horrible experience !

After a regular tune-up of central AC, technician said a couple of parts might need to be replaced, but system was old (about 19 years) and used obsolete refrigerant, so I might consider replacement. Sila sent a project manager to review system. He spent about 45 minutes at house, taking measurements, talking to me about what I wanted, and suggesting options. They apparently deal exclusively with Lennox products. He gave me an estimate of a little over $10,000 for a new furnace, AC, and a bypass humidifier, which I hadn't had before. There was no hard sell; it felt like a professional presentation. (I got an estimate from another company. The guy spent about 15 minutes at the house, which didn't seem like enough time to consider what the house might need and what I was looking for in a major project. He sent an estimate that was a little lower, for American Standard products, but it wasn't exactly an apples-to-apples comparison. I didn't get the same professional vibe.) As I was still considering the offer from Sila and was close to deciding to use them, the project manager informed me they had an opening in the schedule for 2 days later and offered a bit of a discount if I took that date, so I accepted. The crew came at the appointed time and spent about 10 hours doing the installation. They had a professional attitude and tried to be as little disruptive as possible and cleaned up after themselves. The system has been working fine since then. The new AC is quieter than the old one and is supposed to be more energy efficient. The week after the installation they sent someone to check it out, check the refrigerant level, explain how things work, etc.

Our central air conditioner broke down in the middle of a heat wave and we were very pleased with their prompt response.

Office support and communication was excellent. Tech came and checked out the system, made a diagnosis, and recommended repairs. Office called when parts were received to provide a quote and schedule the work. Tech arrived when promised and made repairs. Working well 3 weeks later. Also had them stop by to provide a proposal for a new system. Sales guy arrived on time, checked out the house and existing system, made a recommendation and provided a price. We haven't yet decided what to do. My only somewhat negative comment relates to the high cost of the work. Probably an A rating if cost had been $400 rather than $600. But at least it appears to have been done right and they didn't waste my time.

Bryan and his team, including Jimmy and everyone else, is very professional, friendly, and punctual. My central air conditioning system was 23 years old and had been working fine (York brand), but then needed repair, but such an old system has old refrigerant. Bryan replaced the entire system, including the compressor outside, the air handler in the attic, and all the ductwork. The new ductwork provided better air flow, and a few additional vents were installed. Bryan subcontracted the ductwork, but this turned out excellent, with a few additional vents for better placement than in the original installation. The ducts are insulated, unlike the original installation. The ducts are routed over the mid-span rafter ties, rather than along the floor of the attic as in the original installation, so I have somewhat better access and storage space in my attic now. There is easy access to the air filter, which is a 2-inch-thick pleated filter, rather than the older-style one-inch-thick filter. July is a bad time to find an air conditioner contractor. I contacted five contractors. Four responded. Bryan came over the next day, while none of the others could come within a few weeks. Bryan quoted the day after that. Then the next day, he brought over two temporary air conditioner units (the kind that roll around on wheels and have a duct out a window) so we were ok in our bedroom and kitchen. A couple of days later he brought over a third such unit. That kept us comfortable until the Rheem units arrived and he could install them. Our drop-down attic stairs needed replacement before work could begin. Bryan recommend a contractor who did excellent work, replacing our 37-year-old, spring-loaded wooden stairs with hydraulic (or pneumatic) aluminum stairs. This work including replacing wooden molding and painting that ended up looking as good as the original installation. There was no damage to any interior walls, molding, or handrails during any of the work, including removing the old air handler and ductwork from the attic and installation of the new air handler and ductwork. Bryan sped up the job by doing everything as soon as possible, such as installing the compressor outside and the air handler in the attic while waiting for the ductwork installation. Bryan arranged an electrician the very next morning after ductwork installation. All old scrap metal, including the old compressor, air handler, and ducting was picked up the very same day that it was hauled down from the attic and onto my driveway. They chose a reasonable location that was out of sight and wouldn't damage my grass, but it was nice that it was all removed right away. Bryan filled out all paperwork for me for the energy rebate. All I had to do was sign it and mail it, so that was very convenient. This review is for a brand-new 3-ton Rheem central air conditioning system, completely separate from my heating system and its ducts. .

AGMR Mechanical
Needed to replace my home a/c and GMR Mechanical visited my home quickly. We discussed the options and was quoted a price on the spot with the available installation dates. Their prices were reasonable so I hired the company for the A/C replacement. The work completed by GMR Mechanical was excellent, cleaned up and were very polite. I would hire again.

Our central air stopped blowing cold air in the middle of a heat wave on July 4th.  We noticed the problem when we got home that evening.  We have a newborn and a toddler at home so we were nervous about the sweltering heat, and being able to get someone out to repair it over a holiday weekend.  We called PM Fleming and someone assured us they would relay the message and we would receive a call ASAP.  Paul called first thing the next morning.  He had several appointments that day but assured us he'd come over when he got through all of his previously scheduled visits.  Paul called when he was on his way and arrived that afternoon with his son.  They assessed the unit, figured out the problem (needed a new capacitor and wiring) and consulted with us about the problem and the price to fix it before he did any work.  They repaired the unit in no time and we were up and running.  Paul then took the time to talk to us about our system.  He was honest and frank and did not try to sell us on any unecessary upgrades - instead he educated us about how to use the current system more efficiently and effectively.  Both Paul and his son were considerate, friendly (nice to our dog and our kids) and very helpful.  We are so grateful that, even though we were a brand new customer, he squeezed us into his schedule and saved us from what would have been an unbearable few days.  I would recommend PM Fleming to anyone in a heartbeat - this is what good service is all about.

Recent Review: I wanted to have my heating and air conditioner inspected and tuned up and Genove offered a service to do just that. The technician showed up on time (actually 10 minutes) early and was very helpful in explaining to me exactly what he was doing each step of the way. He inspected the blower unit up in my attic as well as the actual air conditioner unit on the exterior of the condo. He made sure everything was working properly and wrote down several things I can do periodically to make sure I continue to have a properly working system.
