Recent Review: I tired to use they at my new house because we wanted to get an evaporated cooler installed. But they are no longer doing evaporated coolers. They are doing more Traditional Air Conditioners. They gave me a reference to someone else, which made me sad because they did such a good job, before. They did a great job.

Recent Review: We're only communicating by phone. I can't see the work but he's always done excellent work. On price, he charged me the first time he's came out and he's kept it going; all except for parts, since. I thought he was very reasonable on price. Quality seems to be excellent. His responsiveness is very good. On punctuality, I give him free time so there's not really punctuality. I say can you come out sometime today and he'll say I can't make it today but I’ll be there early tomorrow. On professionalism, he's really stood behind the work he's done. It's very hard to get somebody to come out and work on your swamp cooler. If it's on the ground, fine; but nobody wants to go up on your roof.

Recent Review: The owner himself came out to do the estimate, and was the only one of the three company representatives to suspect that we had a problem with the vents in the attic. There was no hard sell. They scheduled the work within a few days of when we notified them to proceed. All the workers on the project were very professional. They arrived when they said they would, and worked long days. They were flexible enough to change their work schedule when we had an emergency and had to go out. The installation was flawless. They explained everything that we needed to know. The job was done on time and within budget.

Recent Review: They had to come back out to fix some issues with the original work. I believe it was due to the fact that one of the workers was fairly new. But, nonetheless, they took care of the problems. I do have to call them back about not getting enough heat out of one vent. They have always returned my calls and come out to fix any issues. They did call one time and cancel last minute (late, in fact) for an appointment.

Recent Review: They were pretty good. They were there when they said they would be.  They didn't drag it out, they had the right people there at the right time. There were 8 workers at different times here. It took three days to complete the work.  They left the area cleaner than when they started. They did everything well.

Reviews in Ramona to Repair Swamp Cooler

CParadise Heating & Cooling, Inc.
It was okay. They seemed very knowledgeable and experienced. They did a good job installing the loops for the chains and putting a bracket underneath for extra support. We felt the cooler was very stable and secure. We had such strong chains from the previous installation location, they decided to use our chains instead of providing their own. They did not have the materials (cut-to-fit hard plastic panels and installation channel) for sealing the window on the sides of the cooler. I had to order these myself from the manufacturer (Essick Air) because only the accordion ones were available at Home Depot & Lowe's. It's not a big deal, but it seems like they should have simple materials like this in stock. Also, this delayed the installation a couple weeks until I could get these parts in the mail from the manufacturer. We REALLY did not like how they did the caulking of the panels in the spaces on each side of the cooler in the window. The caulking was uneven, smeared over on the panels, and even had a spot that was too thin so there was a small hole that wasn't sealed. It was sloppy and aesthetically unappealing. Aren't you supposed to wipe off the excess when you caulk? When I pay for a professional installation, I expect them to be more careful and take a few extra minutes to make the caulking look really CLEAN, EVEN, and solid. Some people care about how things look...I would have gladly paid for the extra 15-30 minutes it would have taken to make the caulking look really nice. I was genuinely surprised at how careless and sloppy it looked. There was a mix-up with payment amount just before they left. They asked for a different price from the phone quote we got, but they didn't know why it was different. They tried to call their manager and couldn't reach him for 15 minutes. It was really awkward and frustrating. I wanted to pay cash, so I wanted to pay them for the work at the time instead of sending a check later. I told them to not worry about it and I'll just pay them the slightly higher amount they asked (I was so irritated I just wanted them to leave), but the one guy was trying to be nice and insisted on reaching his manager before he left. He finally reached the manager and confirmed the lower amount. I was glad to have gotten a phone quote, and I completely understand that things can change when the work is done. But this price discrepancy was simply due to a miscommunication with their manager. They should have handled it amongst themselves before coming to do the work.  There has been an Angie's List article about people using the bathroom. I don't mind, but I think they should ask first. While we were discussing the payment issue, the other guy (who was talking on his cell phone for a while, something unrelated to the job) just used our bathroom without asking. In the context of the other things I was unhappy about, this really irritated me and I thought it was unprofessional. I even ask before using the bathroom when visiting an acquaintance or friend. I think common courtesy and respect would dictate that a total stranger should ask before using the bathroom in my house. It irked me at the time, but after I looked closely at the sloppy caulking later his use of the bathroom in the context of the whole experience bothered me significantly more. It just started to create a picture of disrespect and not caring. I was going to give them a little courtesy tip (I had already set aside the money before I had a chance to closely inspect the work), but the guy who used the bathroom left in his separate car first. He had chatted with me earlier, so I was surprised when he left without saying anything. It just seemed weird.  They left a small bucket of screws on the porch (it was almost empty so I didn't call about it). We thought it was a little strange when 2 days later our cooler stopped working. The float arm screw loosed a little, so the pan in the bottom wasn't filling with water AND the t-connector in the top of the cooler became clogged with some straw (from the cooling pads inside). We fixed both of these things ourselves. We wondered if they would have looked at the inside of the cooler to make sure these basic things were working right, but we HAD only hired them for an installation. No one asked us if we wanted a cooler check-up, and I'm not even sure if that's a service they provide. They were the lowest quote we got, and it was a solid, stable installation. So I am happy about that at least. If I ever worked with them again, I would try to be really remedially clear about how I want the work to look and tell them slow down or schedule extra time so it looks nicer.

AREGAL CONCEPTS & DESIGNS
My wife and I needed a quick turnaround renovation. We were expecting our first child and we had a due date that wasn't changing, so when we were interviewing contractors Paul stated they could have all the work done in the amount of time we requested, I believed him, and he delivered. All the work above was performed in about 9 weeks, and completed on time, even with a little extra work added from the original scope. My wife and I had moved out of the house so that the work could be done faster. Work started end of February and was done early April. The work started with removal of the popcorn textured ceilings, and the end result of the work done was great, but the sub consultant used our front yard/ and hoses as a cleaning station leaving quite a bit of mess. Most of it was eventually cleaned up, but the first impression was a little tough. I spoke with Paul about it and the sub never used our yard again to clean up. After that the work got going quicker and quicker. The AC, water heater, walls, windows, new laundry, paint and coordination with our flooring installer done done within a month. One major word of kudos, the team Paul used for framing, drywall, and patching did an excellent job. I believe that is where they really excelled. The electrical install of the new recess lighting looks great and is one of my favorite features of the house. We did some quick re-adjustments of the new laundry room venting, gas lines, and electrical to make more sense with how the new machines would fit, and they were done quickly. The new windows on the outside look incredible, and Paul's team matched our stucco and paint perfectly. As I said before we were on a very rapid schedule, and so one of the last items was painting. Overall, the paint came out OK, but we went through a few rounds of needed touch-ups to missed areas and a few wobbly lines, but Paul's team did what they could to fix things. I would say maybe if I had given them a bit more time the interior paint would have had a better quality, but in the end we got an overall decent job. The last item was a plumbing job. We found that after the install of the new tankless water heater the water pressure in the house was significantly less than previous. Paul's plumber sub was sure it was the reducer and valve outside the house, but I wasn't so sure. When I tried to work with Paul on the price and to see if the new plumbing components were actually necessary and maybe the issue was with the new tankless system he disagreed. I offered to split the cost with him but he refused. Ultimately, after replacing the new plumbing components, the house pressure was still bad. I paid for new plumbing components that did not fix the pressure problem, but Paul did finally offer to split the cost and look into what could be causing the problem. At that time, we were juggling our new baby and truing to move back in and I just wanted the project behind us. Overall, I would use Regal Concepts again. Pros: Pauls Team hit every schedule milestone Great quality of framing, windows, electrical, and coordination Good team of workers, always on time and extra effort Cons: Interior paint was done quickly, but was under rush schedule, but needed a lot of fixing. Our front and backyards were used as messy paint and patch clean up stations.

I emailed a list to him of the chores I needed done, and he returned my email the next day, and came to do the work the day after that! It took 2.5 hours, he was pleasant, worked efficiently and did a good job for me.

DGuthrie & Sons Heating, Air, & Solar
Pretty much a disaster from start to finish. They broke and had to repair the attic access trim 3 times. They neglected to attach the attic heat vent and we didn't know about it until months later when a roof inspector was up there. The garage air vent looked like it was installed by a 6-year-old. The contract called for a bathroom in-line exhaust fan but they brought one of those cheap ones you buy at Home Depot; we had to argue and insist they install what was in the contract. The best thing about this company is their handyman who came to fix the attic access trim and the garage combustion air vent. This is family-owned business and family members were part of the crew. You'd think they would do a decent job. [We did not submit a review at the time the work was done because we were so disgusted; however, we're submitting this now because you requested it.] In response to the service provider: It is true that Guthrie's fixed what it is in the first and third photos. The second and fourth photos, Guthrie's did not fix those. That is how they left them. We didn't know the heat vent from the attic through the roof wasn't attached until months later when we had a roof inspector up there. We had to hire another company to come and attach that.

AASI The White Glove Guys!
 We recently purchased a home in El Cajon.  I had noticed that the heating vent in one of the bedrooms did not blow very hard and the room did not heat.  I called ASI to come take a look and also give me an estimate for a new A/C unit and install.  (We only have a heater.)  They came out the very next day, on time, and told me that the "flipper" had installed the heating unit and ran the air hoses/ducts all over the attic, there was no direct route from the heating unit to the rooms.  The estimate they gave me was for the A/C unit, new air ducts with direct routes to the bedrooms and sealing of the ceiling vents to minimize air loss.  (Which apparently the "flippers" did not do either.)  Of course I had to think it over a few days but as soon as I called to schedule the install, they literally came out in two days!  (I was on a time crunch and needed it done before the weekend)  The ASI team of reps, inspectors and technicians are phenomenal.  VERY professional, accommodating and friendly.  The office staff is wonderful as well!  I would not hesitate to HIGHLY recommend ASI to anyone!  Worth every penny!

Since some cases can result in having to add additional freon, it would have been nice to know the cost of the freon per pound in the initial check up deal, if it was required.  The provider did tell me the price after the initial check up and before I agreed to add the additional cost of the freon but at that time I had no way of knowing if the price was high or low.  After doing some additional research later on Angies list it appears that the price was ok.  There are some that are higher and some that are lower. Overall it was a positive transaction and the provider did what they said they would do.

Absolutely a great experience.  He explained to me thatI would Iactually save heat by not closing off one of my bedrooms.  His price was nire than fair ,  The lesast expensive of any furnace man I have called, and much more complete.
