Recent Review: I had somebody else check the AC and they suggested we needed a new heat exchange. I called Air Pro and they told us there was no crack. They are very honest, they could have made some extra money but instead were honest. I've never had a problem with them.

Recent Review: AWESOME Company!! We all have a and quot;go toand quot; company for things we can't fix ourselves - this is by far the BEST Heating and AC company around. We have been in our home for nearly three years and every year when we turn the first floor heat on, debris falls from the vents and must be cleaned up every morning. (Not what you want to wake up to) We have had three different companies come out during this time and each one told us that the problem was something different. One said we needed to replace the furnace, another said nothing was wrong and yet another told us that the heat exchanger unit was cracked and should be replaced for safety reasons. Big dollar repair costs! We called Ace Mechanical Services to determine the issue. The technician arrived at the scheduled time and inspected the unit. After removing the heat exchanger, he confirmed that there was no cracks or problems with the furnace. After inspecting the ducts, he found that there was so much dust and debris built up that the dry heated air pushed it through the vents anytime we ran the heater. FINALLY we had found the cause! Ace Mechanical Services cleaned all of the first floor ducts and our problem is solved! The technicians were professional and cleaned every area they serviced. This company will be my and quot;go toand quot; company for any heating or AC problem. Thanks Ace Mechanical Team!!!

Recent Review: QUOTE: the owner showed up right on schedule.  He analyzed all aspects of the heating system and explained in clear details what the work would entail and listed it, item by item, in his written quote.  As a sideline, he also made a quick inspection of the AC system during which I learned some new things (such as age of the systems).  All my questions were answered. The price was competitive with the lowest bids I had received (some were much higher).  Since he showed a genuine concern for my needs while other bidders appeared to be just after a quick sale, the decision to award him the job was straightforward. INSTALLATION & STARTUP: the three man crew was clean (tarps over carpet, no mess left behind); the installation was completed in around 5 hours. Start-up went without a hitch.  The owner then completed a thorough inspection of work performed and answered the few questions I had about operation. Overall very satisfied and Comfort Star will be my first call for HVAC servicing and, when needed, for replacement of the old AC units.

Tech was supposed to be at my place between 8:00 and 12:00. He arrived after 2:00. He charged me for 2 hours ($80/hr) which I thought was excessive. From the time his office called to tell me he was on his way until he arrived was about a half hour. Since he starts charging from the time he leaves the previous customer, I owed him a half hour before he got here plus an additional $50 trip charge, which sounds like double dipping. So I owed him $90 by the time he got to my door. During his inspection he went to his truck to get tablets for the drip pan, even though I told him I had tablets. Then when he had finished the job, he said he had to go the truck to call his office/prepare the bill and that it would take quite a while. And it did. Maybe all of this is standard practice in the business. But if it is, it's smacks of extortion.

FHouston Admiral Air Conditioning and Heating
Terrible. I answered a telephone solicitation from them for an A/C heating checkup. Paid $50. After the check-up the technician told me I had a crack in my heat exchanger and recommended $4000 worth of work. I then had my heat exchanger checked by Absolute Comfort who I had used before with great satisfaction. Their technician inspected the unit and said there was no crack in the heat exchanger. When I reported this to Admiral, they sent two supervisors to inspect the unit....and they said again that there WAS a crack in the heat exchanger. Absolute Comfort again inspected it and said there was no crack. Without me giving him a name, Absolute Comfort asked if the company was Admiral. When I said yes, he said he had just serviced another customer, who was told they had a cracked heat exchanger that requires thousands of dollars to repair. When he inspected it, it was not cracked either. Admiral's president offered me a refund, and then withdrew the offer.

Went well.  He checked the heater, inspected the heat exchanger, cleaned the flame sensor and pressure switch port. The tech reported the unit is operating properly.

I agreed to just replace the 17 year old heat exchanger rather than part by part fixes.  He also replaced my 2 thermostats with programmable ones.  I'm very please with their work and all the workmen are very nice.  I will definitely use them again.

Though expensive, we were influenced by the tax savings at the time.  Saved space in the limited area that includes our air conditioner/heating system.  Has worked well, though a filter to prevent hard water buildup in the heat exchanger must be replaced yearly.  Also about every three years the heat exchanger needs an acid vinegar recirculation to ensure no scale buildup.  That is costly  if done by them, but a resident can do it with a recirculating pump kit from Home Depot/Lowe's. The workmen were pleasant and efficient during the installation.  We continue to use Milton Frank under their MVP program and are happy with their overall service.

A/C wasn't keeping up with heat so we got a few estimates on work. These guys had the best system (efficiency, brand quality) for the best price. They spent the whole day working in the attic in the summer heat, and when we noticed the system wasn't working as it should the next day, a Saturday, they promptly returned to fix the situation,spending a half day and  installing a $300 part at no charge. Then the next day when we found the gas to hot water was off, we called again and they came right out to fix it. Always pleasant and professional. They have zero-interest financing for a year, the house is plenty cool and our electric bills have dropped by $160 a month. Air Tech is great.

He said there wasn't a crack in the heat exchanger. It's a scratch caused by a screw driver or other metal object. He explained that my furnace appeared to be in good condition and should last 25-30 years if maintained properly. Also, his cost to replace the furnace with a better unit is half the cost the other company quoted me. He did not charge me for the second opinion.
