BSchaafsma Heating & Cooling
There was a crack in the heating exchanger and they fixed it, later after a week it shut down due to excessive carbon. I called then again than they said I have to buy a new heat exchanger.

ADyer & Deweerd Heating & Coolg
Brought Dyer and Deweerd in to diagnose a problem with my furnace. They did a thorough test, documented the issue and provided both repair / replacement options and costs. They also did research to confirm the heat exchanger was under warranty even though they don't carry that brand. In addition, they provided their recommendation based on their experience.

AGrapids Heating & Cooling Inc
They were beyond punctual - actually 15 minutes early! Very professional, quoted us for three options (new furnace, new heat exchanger plus clean and inspect, or just replace heat exchanger). Did all the work in a timely manner, and furnace appears to be working fine again now!

FVredevoogd Heating & Cooling Inc
Vredevoogd did the annual checkup and found a crack on the heat exchanger. They turned the furnace off until the heat exchanger is replaced. Since, they do not sell my unit, I needed to contact another company. Spent $3,112 for a new heat exchanger. They were unable to find any cracks on the exchanger! Vredevoogd would not cover any of my costs.

AARCTIC HEATING & AIR COND
Very helpful unlike Penning Heating who said the warranty on the heat exchanger was expired and I needed a new furnance for over $3000. Arctic is a Bryant dealer and worked with Bryant to obtain the heat exchanger under warrantly. Arctic is very professional and thorough as well as cost effective. They do a great job for a fair price. They have done other service for us promptly and fair priced. I would recommend them to anyone who wants an honest, fair and professional heating and cooling company

ABouwkamp Heating & Cooling
During an annual furnace inspection, I was told by a tech that my heat exchanger was cracked and I needed a new furnace. My friend recommended I obtain a second opinion from Roger w/ Bouwkamp Heating. I am very detail oriented and asked Roger lots of questions. Roger took the time to carefully answer them. He proceeded to ask me some questions and as he prudentally listened to my answers, he provided an alternative. He informed me that my heat exchanger was still under warranty. This suprised me given the age of my furance. He proposed to replace it and charge me labor only. Given the good condition of my furance, he recommended repairing it when he could have made more money by selling me a new one. I strongly recommend Roger because he truly made me feel like my needs were most important, even thought it cost him money in the short-term.

DVander Hyde
Vander Hyde has one sales pitch after another. At first, the company seemed top notch- professional, timely, accommodating. The technician told me I needed to replace my heat exchange, a $450+ repair. This was determined by reading the CO levels out of the exhaust pipe- the place where any CO is supposed to go. I called another HVAC company to get a second opinion because something didn't feel right. A second company said that the heat exchange was fine, and that Vander Hyde installed the wrong the flame sensor and ignitor. The second company stated that I likely did not need new parts based on the condition of the furnace. I called Vander Hyde and spoke with a manager to inform him that his tech installed the wrong products and he just kept trying to sell me on a new heat exchange, denying that his tech would do anything wrong. He did not follow up with me when he said he would. I had to call him a week later, he came to my home, admitted that the parts were wrong and that I didn't really need a new heat exchange. Go somewhere else.

FVredevoogd Heating & Cooling Inc
Buyer beware!!  Vredevoogd is unethical.  . Vredevoogd "tune up" special became obvious that they are just out pushing new furnaces.  The technician was polite and professional but pointed out a hairline fracture in my heat exchanger and said that he will need to shut off my furnace quoting some AGA BS.  He said I would need to replace the heat exchanger or get a new furnace before turning it back on and how ironic, they don't make my heat exchanger anymore.  Well, this Vredevoogd technician did not realize he was dealing with a degree'd mechanical engineer and probably know how the furnace works as well as he did (maybe more).  A furnace heat exchanger is not an air tight chamber to begin with so a hair line fracture should not cause any issue with it's function.  Google it, a cracked heat exchanger it is a myth/scam.  It only becomes an issue if it is affecting the burners and there is insufficient combustion which is caused by a large cracks or holes in the heat exchanger.  The Vredevoogd technician tried to scare me with carbon monoxide poisoning, however I have carbon monoxide detectors in the house that DO NOT indicate any issue. . So if you want to get scared into buying a new furnace with words like "Poisoning" and turning off the gas to your current furnace (when it's snowing outside), then by all means hire Vredevoogd.  They will be glad to to give your furnace a tune up (shut off) and try to sell you a new furnace.  They must be trying to pay for those TV commercials.  Always question someone who says you "need" a new furnace while they are selling you a new furnace. . UPDATE: The below response is not their own words, I have done my research. http://www.shavitz.com/blog/the-dangers-associated-with-a-cracked-heat-exchanger/ Another company trying to sell furnaces.

FPenning Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric
Penning, during the annual Heating and AC check for $317 (which I later found out was more than 4 times what other companies charge), found a cracked heat exchanger on the furnace. Penning provided misleading information and recommended an uncecessary replacement of the furnace. Penning mislead us into believeing the manufacture of the furnace (Bryant) would not provide warranty coverage on the heat exchanger. I found out when I called Bryant directly that there was a 20 year warranty on the heat exchanger and all I would have to pay to fix the unit was the labor to replace the heat exchanger. Penning had indicated the only way to deal with the broken heat exchanger was to replace the furnance since there was no warranty on this part. Penning provided cost estimates from $2800 to $4100 for a new furnace. Penning would put nothing in writting as support for these estimates. The Bryant dealer indicated $800 for labor to replace the heat exchanger under warranty with no cost for the part. I saved over $2000 by checking with Bryant directly which Penning could have done. Penning said not even to try as nothing would be done since Bryant did not stand behind its products. I am very disappointed in Penning since the information provided was misleading. Additionally an unncecssary suggestion to spend $2800+ on a new furnace was made when the unit could be fixed for $800. This is beyond belief that someone would be so misleading and deceitful in its dealing with customers. We had used them since 2001 for all of the annual inspections of the Heating and Cooling systems, as well as several system performace issues. I can not think how they would treat new customers.

Recent Review: A/C repair was prompt and effective. I had my doubts about the cracked heat exchanger since I had not specifically asked for that to be inspected & it resulted in a potential sale for their company.  But when the furnace was replaced by another company, they verified that Vredevoogd's diagnosis was correct.

Recent Review: THE PRICE WAS HIGH, BUT THE QUALITY WAS GOOD. THE ONLY REASON WHY I WENT TO THIS COMPANY IS BECAUSE MY UNIT WAS UNDER WARRANTY AND THIS WAS THE ONLY LOCAL LENNOX COMPANY. I WOULD NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY AGAIN BECAUSE IT WAS TOO PRICEY.
