Recent Review: He was well mannered, went right to work and professionally installed both units in 2hrs. Now I don't have to worry about condensation draining in the window sills or easy access via the open windows!!

Recent Review: I wanted to replace my old furnace and central air conditioner. After doing research I decided to install Trane. I was looking for authorized Trane dealer in my area. Besco Air happened to be one of them. I read about Besco Air in Angie?s list. Based on the positive comments written by various members in Angies?s List I decided to call Besco Air. Mr. Joe Pedota came to visit my home and see what kind of furnace and AC unit would be good for my house. I had lot of questions. Mr. Pedota was very polite and answered all of them to my satisfaction. I was very impressed by his sincerity.  Although his price was not very different from other companies I decided to go with Besco Air because Mr. Pedota seemed to me a very honest and caring person. He came during and after the installation. I am very happy with his service. The technicians who came to install the furnace and AC did a good job. They came on time and finished the job in one day. My experience with Besco Air has been positive. I will recommend them to other people

Recent Review: I noticed that the furnace for the second floor of the house had died. I called Lifeline based on the other excellent reviews I had seen on Angie's List. I called on March 7 and was able to set up an appointment for an inspection for the same day. The technician, Joe, was punctual and polite. One thing I immediately noticed is that before entering the house, he put plastic booties on over his shoes, which I really appreciated. Joe took about 1 hour to look everything over. He called me up and showed me exactly what was wrong with the system (actually multiple things were wrong). There was water/condensate rather copiously leaking from the secondary heat exchanger. There was also rather extensive corrosion of both the primary heat exchanger and the secondary heat exchanger.  This was causing the gas flame to not be drawn in to the primary heat exchanger as well as it should have been. This in turn was causing overheating of the frame of the furnace. He actually showed me the corrosion with this cool flexible scope. He also showed me the abnormality with the flames as well as the water that was rather obviously leaking. Since the system was 23 years old (was the original system that had been installed when the house was built) and given what was wrong with the system, he suggested just changing the entire system. He did not try to up-sell me on anything. I agreed with him. He didn't pressure me. He answered all of my questions clearly and thoroughly (and I had a lot of questions). He also did not try to sell me a system that was too large or overpowered for the space. He also gave me several options in terms of the level of efficiency of both the AC and the furnace. He was honest about what he felt was worth paying for and what was not worth paying for. I settled on a 16 SEER 4 ton AC and a 95% efficient dual stage 100,000 BTU furnace. The central humidifier was also replaced. I thought that I would have to wait a while for the installation, but surprisingly he said they would be able to come the next day to do the installation. We firmed up the appointment for the installation. He explained that they would need a 30% deposit and that the remaining 70% would be due at the time of completion of the installation.  The installers arrived the next day at 10 AM. The installers names were Brandon and Anthony. They were very polite and introduced themselves. They also put plastic booties on their shoes before coming into the house. They took them off when they exited the house and put them back on when they entered the house. They must have gone in and out of the house about a hundred times and they did it every time. They laid out tarps along the entire path that they would be using in the house. They were exceedingly careful when moving things in and out. They cleaned up after themselves when they left. Everything was immaculate when they were done; there was not a spot on the carpet, a scratch on the hardwood, nor a ding on any wall. They also hauled away all of the garbage (including the old furnace, AC, and humidifier). They took about 10 hours to do the job. Brandon explained to me that things were taking longer because the furnace was located in a closet. This meant that there was only enough room for one person to be working at a time in the cramped space. Brandon gave me multiple updates throughout the day. He showed me the final product. He answered all my questions politely and throughly. He was also training Anthony and I could hear that he was being polite and courteous with him as well. I was very impressed. I would definitely call Lifeline again for any HVAC issues.

Recent Review: All of the kitchen work went off without a hitch. They were in and out in less than one week. The workers were highly professional and extremely talented. the Floor looks absolutely beautiful and the drywall was up and painted in two days time. The person who placed the drywall and painted was a true artist. I have never seen such excellent work. We has since asked for a quote on some additional taping and painting to be done in other areas of our home. He was that good. The new window we asked for has turned out even better than we had expected. We had an old window unit air conditioner unit that we had not used in years in the old window. The technician removed the old air conditioner and replaced the old window which had broken glass in it. We have been amazed at how this new window looks. It brightens up our entire living room and makes it look so much better. I cannot say enough about the talent that both workers brought to this house. The kitchen looks like a brand new one with just the additions we asked for. We were never talked into more than what we asked for. Other companies wanted us to remove all the cabinets and get new ones which we were not interested in doing. Handy Men & Mrs. Helper did exactly what we wanted. No more and no less. It has been a pleasure working with this company. They were a real change from normal contractors. They had only our interests in mind and not lining their pocketbooks at our expense. We have been extremely pleased with "Our new House". Thank you Handy Men & Mrs. Helper for a job well done and for such a pleasurable experience working with you. Don and Betty Delaney

Recent Review: Great experience.  The sales engineer, Mike, was prompt, professional and extremely friendly.  He took the time to explain various options, including a nice primer on how air conditioners work.  When it came time for the installation, the technician was on time, efficient and tidy.  After the new system was installed (a tricky installation due to the small size of the crawl space), the installation manager came for the final walk-through.  One remaining installation issue was corrected extremely promptly, and the new system works like a charm.  These guys really know old homes and we couldn't be more happy with the final product.

Recent Review: Overall this was a very positive experience and I will be calling them again for my repair needs. I sent an estimate request from their website and received a call a few days later from the scheduler. I discussed my project needs and was given a very clear explanation of how the scheduling and repair process works as well as pricing. I was able to schedule my repair within a relatively short time (within 2 weeks) at a time that was convenient with my schedule. I received a confirmation call the day before to review my project plan and answer any questions. On the day of service, I received a call in advance from the handyman advising that he would see me at the appointment time. He was very prompt. All the work was performed in a timely and careful manner. He was very careful to clean up afterwards and was very friendly and professional. He had all the tools/materials he needed for my job so no additional trips to the store were required. I will definitely use Handyman Matters again and will start making a new to-do list today. It's so much easier to have someone knowledgeable come do the work than to try to figure out how to do it myself!

Recent Review: Did a very thorough inspection of my existing heating system. Took time to explain problems, options and recommendations. Did not send an estimate or contact me after the visit. Price rating is based on the costs discussed during the visit.

Recent Review: It went very well. The fan motor on the compressor for the old unit failed. Also, the capacitor was failing. The old unit was 12 years old. So we decided to just install a new unit. Freedom had a crew out later that day and completed the installation by about 5:00PM. All of the crew were friendly, courteous, and conscientious. They gladly answered the questions I had regarding the new unit. They cleaned up all of the areas they worked in. I didn't have to pick up anything after they left. I've previously used Freedom for several other service calls, as well as yearly maintenance. I'll definitely call on them again.

Reviews in Northbrook to Install Central AC

AGEORGE'S REFRIGERATION
My central a/c wouldn't start. I called the company that ususally services my a/c and furnace. The person who they sent told me I needed a whole new unit, he couldn't repair the burned out motor on the condenser. After calling the company to get further information, I was skeptical, since they were trying to sell me a new unit. A friend recommended George, and after calling him, he was there within the hour, worked with an assistant on the a/c for about an hour, and all was well. He said the unit was very dirty and just needed cleaning and a new valve. He even went so far as to shut all my windows before he left. A great guy, great work and reasonably priced. He's on my list of go-to problem solvers!

Called Four Seasons to simply have central A/C recharged for the season. Made appointment for service and was given a five hour window for when theyd show up to do the work. Never showed nor did they call. When I called after the fifth hour, was told tech was on his way. An hour later - six total - still no tech. I then called and cancelled the job.

Very well - From the first phone call through when they finished. When I first called, they explained that with a heavy work load that it would not be able to have someone come out until the following Wednesday. Then they were able to make the appointment based on my schedule. The sales person arrived right on time, explained everything they needed to do including changing the circuit breaker, pipe connectors and furnace coils. He also pointed out what they would reuse. We scheduled the appointment and again, the workers showed up right on time. They were polite, efficient and worked most of the day on the installation. Just before leaving they told me how to maintain the AC. After a long day, they they were just as polite when they left as when they started. Everything went smoothly.

He came out as promised. We used them one other time for the same air-conditioner check up. He recharged system and cleaned outside unit. I am so grateful he helped us nurse this 20 year old unit through another summer. Next season will buy my new central AC from them.

Our air conditioner needed to be replaced. We received an estimate for a new unit that included installation and start-up costs. The sales people helped us choose a unit that met our needs and our budget, helping us weigh pros and cons of several options. Once decided, installation was convenient and professionally accomplished. We use American Weathermakers for all our heating and cooling needs and have never had any complaints.

CAll Temp Heating & Air Conditioning
In June of 2013 I selected 3 brands of heating/air conditioning manufacturers to replace my 15 year old units. Then I selected one installer with good reviews on Angie's List for each brand. All-Temp provided the best value so I selected them. We set a date for the installation. On the day and  they were supposed to be here I had to call after 2 hours only to learn there had been a scheduling mix up and they wouldn't be here til the next day. Next day I had to call again. This time they said someone had an emergency. They finally came out later in the day. They ran out of time so they only got the air conditioner running. They said someone would be out in a few days to complete the furnace. Since it was June the air conditioning was our major interest. After 2 months I called to check. No one new what had happened but they set a date and came out to finish. They finished the install and we noticed some scratched covers. They said they would order new covers and come out to install. Finally after 6 more months they brought out the new covers and provided 2 furnace filters for my inconvenience. Through it all they were always professional and courteous. In the end installation and the furnace/air conditioner are working fine. It seems they may need to look at their project management skills and ability to follow an order through to conclusion.
