Recent Review: Exellent. I originally called Element Heating & Air to have my a/c looked at out because our home was not getting cool. Turns out we didn't have an ac problem it was an insulation issue. They installed what they called R38 Insullation and the difference is tremendous. Energy bill has gone down about 30%

Recent Review: They initially responded to my complaint of a broken furnace in a house I just purchased.  Looking at the furnace, a ~30 yr old Rheem, the technician provided a quote of $800 to fix, but suggested a new furnace given that other components looked near failure too.  For $2500, I decided to go for it.  I didn't get competitive bids, so can't speak to their price competitiveness.  However, they were punctual, thorough, and clean. The tech showed up the next day to start the work on time; I left him for the day, coming back in the evening, and he gave me a little tour of the system and talked me through some options to solve a duct routing problem.  He accidentally broke the switch on the wall next to the heater, but they had someone out the next day to fix that and install the filter which he had forgotten.   But what I really appreciated was a few very minor but very helpful things he did above & beyond: I had some old ducts in a trash heap that I was going to have to dispose of myself, and he offered to take them, and I had a portable dishwasher that I needed to move between rooms but that needed two people to move it up & down some steps, and he spent an extra 5 minutes helping me with that as well. The heater works great, and - from his tour & descriptions - obviously takes pride in his work.  He mentioned he'd been with Furnace Man for 4+ years continuously now, but that he had been originally hired by them some 20 years ago before trying a few different companies.  So seems like a good company to work for & keeps good people.

Recent Review: Quick and efficient installation, required installation of new venting in garage, which was done without a hitch. Their silver maintenance plan has worked out well to keep the system in top shape.

Recent Review: EXCELLENT Kal and Giovanni responded to my message on Yelp within a couple of hours -- the first to respond.  They suggested a diagnostic for $69.95.  I told them I wanted to take a conservative approach and fix just what needed to be fixed on the air conditioning.  The fan wasn't moving and PGE informed me it was probably a bad motor on the 16 year old unit.    Kal of Global took a video of what was wrong, hooked up his voltage meter to each component, explained the acceptable parameters versus the actual reading, and told me which components needed to be fixed.  The contact switch and electrical cords had burned out (PGE had shown me the same thing) and the motor had to be replaced -- total $1000 for parts and labor.  Very fair price.  They ordered the parts Friday and came back Monday at 10 am to do the installation.   Over the past three years, not one other company had been so diligent.  Instead I had been lectured by one gentleman (the company's name begins with a synonym for "Seaside") who told me that the people who had previously worked on my HVAC didn't know what they were doing, and told me to replace my entire system for $8000-$10000.  I thought I should get another opinion. Another company had said the issue was the thermostats and replaced them.  Days later, and the issue wasn't fixed (probably because the motor was broken). Finally I found Global and I am going to hire them for my yearly maintenance plan so I hopefully don't have to spend the big bucks. Thanks Global! .

Recent Review: They did a good job. We are really happy with them. They were very thorough on making sure all the ducts were clean. They got all of the dog hair out, which is something that a lot of people don't think about. They have a good reputation, and I see them around a lot. A lot of people use them. I would guess that their pricing is fair.

Recent Review: The two technicians always kept me updated, provided extra service, cleaned up after themselves and were extremely professional; they were just all around excellent! They were also very concerned about our dog getting out and made sure to close the door behind them when coming in and out of our home.

Reviews in Redwood City to Install Central AC

FGreen Leaf Air
The installation date was 09/08 but they postponed due to the equipment not arriving. The rescheduled installation date was 09/22 but they postponed again because the contract installer didn't return their calls. Then they increased the estimate from $5K to $6.9K and I also had to pay for the permit and getting electricity to the central air unit site. (Another $0.7K). After a few more postponed installation dates in October and more excuses, I called on 11/08 and they said it would be another week and a half for installation. I then fired them. Don't use Green Leaf if you live in California like I do.

No call no show on installation day. I had to call twice looking for them, once after two hours late, then after 5 hours late. Finally rescheduling for following day. They did show on time next day after i threatened to cancel the sale altogether. Workers arrived on time and were professional. Was told it was a one day job when sold to me, but it turned into 2.5 days with the wasted no show day. Price was good enough. Not much detail to any of the paperwork on warranties by the company. Was just happy it is over. AC is working fine. Not sure I would recommend simply because of the no show day one which was upsetting, Otherwise things went fine and as expected overall.

The owner Dale, returned my phone call and we made an appointment for an estimate. He arrived right on schedule. He looked at my current furnace (installed 17 years ago) and indicated that, although not quite as efficient as the newest ones, it should not be replaced. He gave me a bid on the air conditioner and an optional air filter. After my 2nd bid and some research, I asked him about the model air conditioner he recommended (Trane XB13) vs. the Trane XR13. The latter has a longer warranty and a bit more sound installation. He indicated that he felt the the XB13 was a better value. I opted to go with the XR 13 at $400 more. I also added the costs of duct cleaning. I made an appointment for the installation. The two installers arrived at the appointed time (9 AM). They presented me the revised estimate which I signed and the work started. During the installation I noticed that the air filter had not been installed and indicated the price included it. I failed to note that it was not on the revised bid. We called Dale, went over the bids, and he quickly agreed that a mistake had been made. He had another worker bring this to the site and it was installed. Due to the layout of my installation, the workers had a challenge running a drain and also routing a new wire to the thermostat. They succeeded with both and completed the installation. They cleaned up thoroughly behind themselves. The only small error was that the panel to the attic was not closed properly and there were some fingerprints on it. Installation was completed at 4:30.

The repairman found that a fuse was blown. He replaced the fuse and advised me on how to replace them myself in the future and what to do to avoid blowing such fuses. Also discussed thermostat, then he moved the air vent to not blow on the thermostat, distorting the room temperature reading. Very professional and prompt.

AJE Moore Air Conditioning & Heating
I was looking for someone to check our furnace and air conditioner unit and provide basic maintenance. Nothing was wrong / broken, but both the furnace and air conditioner needed to be cleaned (at the least), and I wanted to make sure that they were both operating at optimal levels. I also thought this would be a good way to 'test' a provider in case we should experience any troubles in the future. I have had two appointments with J E Moore. Making the original appointment in Sep2010 was easy/straightforward... and J E Moore called me to schedule the pre-paid follow-up in Feb2011. Both times, the technician arrived at the scheduled time, and he was very polite and professional. I was surprised at how much time he took with each piece of equipment... After, he went over what he had done including a couple of adjustments, a number of tests and their results. The maintenance package I purchased is for four maintenance/service visits and include both air conditioner unit and furnace with appointments coinciding with the heating/cooling seasons. The 'package' also comes with other benefits -- I (luckily) have not yet had to take advantage of any of these. (P.S. -- No hard sell and no attempt to up sell.) The maintenance has definitely made a difference -- our gas usage has dropped significantly after the maintenance was performed when compared with the last three years, and although we have not had many 'hot' days, the air conditioner seems to be running more efficiently - it cycles on/off less frequently. We have more than made back the price of this maintenance contract. I have used other HVAC providers... and J E Moore far outperformed. I find J E Moore very honest and trustworthy.

For 2-3 years we had noticed that our house did not cool down adequately on hot days.  After a recent hot spell, we decided to call an HVAC company to check it out.  After finding AAA on Angies List, we made an appointment. On the day of the appointment, Monty arrived on time.  He checked out the system, and told us that the refrigerant was low, and that this was probably the cause of our cooling problem.  This made sense, and we asked him to service the unit.  Within an hour, the refrigerant was recharged.  From then on, we have noticed a big improvement in the AC, and it appears our problem is fixed.

This experience started on a positive when the phone was answered the first time I called and I was able to schedule an appointment. I appreciated not having to leave a voicemail and start a round of phone tag. On the day of the appointment, he was running early, so he called to see if an earlier time would work for me. I found him to be friendly and professional. He quickly diagnosed the problem and showed me the broken part. The best part is that he had the part with him so we were able to get my air conditioner working in one quick appointment.  I am happy with the service and will use again.

I setup an appointment for the afternoon which require me to work from home. He did not come on time and did not call me till almost a hour later and arrived here 1.5hrs late. By the time he got here I had to call in to a work meeting which I had scheduled before. I asked him to wait for 10-15 minutes while I wrapped up the meeting. When I called his after the meeting he told me can only meet me the next day which requires me to another day off from work. I ended up wasting a day on this. I definitely won't hire anyone so unreliable.

I could not have asked for a better experience than I received from AAA Furnace.  Like all providers, they educated me on the various furnace and air conditioning options that exist in the market.  What set them apart is how they addressed a new code requirement for San Jose whereby the HVAC ducting in my home had to meet efficiency requirements.  If you are in San Jose, you need to pay attention to this requirement when replacing your HVAC system.  Basically, you can only have so much air flow leakage from your ducts and a separate contractor needs to conduct the test.  I received three bids for this project.  One bidder recommended replacing my entire ductwork for a cost of $6000.  Another bidder had an add-on that I could purchase which seemed like a type of insurance.  If the system didn't pass, they would come out and fix the problem if I had bought the add-on.  If not, it would cost me a significant amount.  AAA Furnace took a different approach where they first inspected my ducts and thought they were in good shape.  They gave me advice that for my type of home, most air leakage occurred where the ducting connected to the register and recommended that I seal all of these.  They also have their own testing machine and included a pre-test in the cost to make sure it could pass the first time.  I felt they truly solved my problem at the lowest cost possible instead of using the situation to acquire a larger contract.  They were also punctual, efficient in their work, and price competitive.  I would highly recommend AAA Furnace.
