MULL BROTHERS INC
Recent Review: Mull Brothers gave us an estimate on installation of central air conditioner in our old home.  Their price was slightly higher than some competitors (although not by very much), so we didn't end up using them.  However, I was very impressed with Mr. Mull's visit.  He was knowledgeable and thorough, and gave me great information without using any high-pressure sales tactics.  I will probably contact them again in the future for my next project.

Douglas Mechanical Services Inc
Recent Review: The person who scheduled my appointment was friendly and professional. She emailed me a photo of the service tech assigned the job, which I think is an excellent idea. He arrived on time, was very courteous, careful not to track dirt into the house, and was responsive to my questions and concerns. He didn't try to sell me parts I don't need. He did a thorough cleaning and I'm very satisfied with the work. The cost was reasonable. I will definitely use Douglas Mechanical again.

Recent Review: Jim is the type of person I always hope to get when seeking help with something.   He was faced with a non-functioning central A/C system, a collection of ancient equipment and a mess of disconnected wires thanks to the previous owner.   He approached the problem with the enthusiasm that comes naturally to someone who likes to solve problems and see results.  In a surprisingly short amount of time he'd redone the wiring to the thermostats, air controller, furnace and A/C components and had the system producing cold air from a system that I thought was beyond all hope.   As Jim worked on diagnosing the problem he explained what he was doing and why.  He answered my dumb questions with clear and interesting information and he did it without a hint of dismay.   It was obvious that he is very knowledgeable, experienced, and enjoys doing what he does.    I chose Air Specialties because of what I read about them on Angie's List and I am very happy that I did.   Without Angie's List I think the chances of my finding Air Specialties was remote and that would have been a shame.

Viglione Heating & Cooling Inc
Recent Review: Had Viglione clean the evaporator coils and air handler of an 18-year old central air conditioner. Scheduled appointment 9 days in advance and was given 4 hour window (9 AM - 1PM). Contractor arrived at 3:35 PM and made no mention of lateness. Dispatch claimed to have left a phone message but I didn't receive any message. 6/9/11 was a sweltering hot day, perhaps there was a rash of and quot;emergencyand quot; calls and our routine maintenance became a lower priority. The contractor cleaned coils and checked and resealed unit as requested; the work does seem to have reduced mild odors from unit as anticipated. Took longer than I estimated to perform and thus cost slightly more than I expected, but overall I am reasonably happy with the job. Willing to accept that tardiness was due to spike in A/C calls on a very hot day and lack of phone call due to miscommunication. Overall quality of work seems good, might contact them in the future, but would consider others.

CLIMATE PARTNERS
Recent Review: My husband and I replaced the capacitor on our air conditioner, and were unsure of where one (and only one) of the wires should go. We had watched many, many YouTube videos, and only took off one wire at a time while replacing it on the exact same model of the new capacitor. The one wire was not attached when we took off the cover, and thus were unsure. We attached it to two different terminals, and while the fan would run, we could tell the compressor could not kick on. We knew there was another part that was not getting "juice", but we weren't sure which one. We already pay a monthly fee to Climate Partners, and called them for service. It took three days for them to arrive. The service man did arrive at the time he said he would. I showed him what we had done, and knew there was only one wire we were unsure of for the capacitor. He excused himself to the truck because he said his previous client was a tough job. Came back out of the truck saying it was going to cost me $174 just to check the wiring we did and to run diagnostics. He found the same thing we did, that the compressor wasn't getting "juice". He then went inside and was insistent that the panel for the inside air handler was the problem. I knew that wasn't the case, but he proceeded to pursue this diagnostic assumption. I had gone down to my basement to retrieve a screwdriver, when I heard someone on the other end of his phone speaker tell him he had to go back outside and check every part to see if it was getting "juice". Once he completed that task (which should have been a first check), he came back into my house to tell me he had to replace a part. I made him show me which part, only to find that it was the contactor which I had already assumed was the culprit. When I got the bill, I was charged 1) the original $174 to attach one wire, 2) $225 for a part we found at Home Depot that cost $9.74, and 3) another $125 for "further diagnostics". It was obvious to me that the serviceman was not the sharpest knife in the drawer as he kept telling me it was his wife's birthday (probably told me 5 times). He was either having problems focusing, or my service was "on the job training". In either case, if a novice like me can figure this out, clearly someone trained in this trade should have been able to discern the problem sooner than 3 hours.

CLEAR RIVER FUEL OIL
Recent Review: Went great. They installed the AC over a couple of days. The estimate for the electrician's part (about $30 minutes) was $450-$750 and came in at $475, though Clear River lay the initial wiring. I guess it pays to be the electrician! I would recommend them again. When I started getting condensation on the ducts, they came right away and wrapped my furnace in a kind of insulation. I also use these guys for heating oil and yearly service of my furnace.

I hired this company because they were the only one with a technician available. Their technician assessed the problem, said the unit needed a new capacitor. With installation the new capacitor would cost about $700. I paid for this. However, the unit still did not work. The technician said that the compressor was no longer working, although he said it had been working before he'd changed capacitors. He suggested it might need to cool down and offered to stand by the unit with a hose on it, to cool it down, though that would cost me $150/hour. I declined. My regular air conditioner repair person (who had given me the first available slot, 2 days after the unit broke down) came as scheduled -- my plan was to have him assess the compressor. However, he noted that there was a wire that had been left disconnected from the new capacitor, which he told me was the most expensive and elaborate model available.. He connected it, the compressor started up, and the unit has worked perfectly ever since. Unfortunately, it would not have been economical because of labor costs to replace the capacitor again with a less expensive model. So I was stuck with a solid gold capacitor!

The technician came and found the problem quickly. He checked all the system for any additional problems. HARP had installed a replacement for my old system years ago. They impressed me with their efficiency in the installation as well as leaving the job completely cleaned up.

The technician arrived slightly early, followed the checklist exactly and worked efficiently. When he was done, he reviewed the checklist and all operating measurements taken. His manner was pleasant and he answered questions confidently and well.

Harp installed the new air conditioner on July 3, 2012.  Right from the start it  made a large clunking sound when shutting off.  Technicians came to listen to the sound but could offer no solutions.   Help seemed slow in coming so I placed a negative review on Angie's list.  Harp responded and immediately replaced the outside unit with a new one on 9/12/2012.  This unit also made a sound on shutdown, although it was not as loud.   On the recommendation of the manufacturer (American Standard) they then replaced the fan motor on 9/18/2012 and the sound was much less.   The owner, Kevin Moriarity, kept me informed during this process and called a last time on 9/21 to confirm my satisfaction with the result and offered to replace the unit with another even more efficient unit if it proved necessary.   It turned out that the manufacturer had several units with this same problem.   I chose Harp because they are a local company and are large enough to able to stand by their work.   I will use them again.
