Recent Review: We began by interviewing three company representatives. We told each one that we had difficulty heating the family room. One said to reverse the blades of the ceiling fan; another said we needed larger ducts. Justin, from Air Speciality, was the only one who noticed that the duct work was installed incorrectly. Since my husband and I don't trust any company reps, we checked out everything we were told by reading information on reputable, professional websites. Justin was right on about the duct work. He also spent considerable time locating compatible heating and air conditioning systems and presented us with three proposals. We were able to get a $1700 instant rebate from the maunfacturer, $600 from Angie's List, and are eligible for the $1500 tax credit. Justin came to our home twice to answer our questions in addition to responding promptly to phone calls. He definitely has expertise in his field--and patience! The installers showed up on time, worked diligently, cleaned up, and were very polite. Although the weather has been cool and we have not had to use the AC very often, it seems to be working fine. The furnace was turned on when it was first installed and it worked well then. We have no reservations about recommending Air Speciality. I don't think anyone is excited about spending megabucks to replace their heating/AC systems but Air Speciality made a difficult situation much easier and more pleasant.

Recent Review: Overall I was very pleased with the service call. They responded the same day to the original call, and came back out 2 days later to replace the faucet. They were very clean, professional, and quick, as well as very reasonably priced.
Recent Review: Dana kept me informed during each stage of the job. He pointed out the value of possible upgrades as well as required changes to the work order due to findings such as my caulked duct vents, not normally found on sites. I thought the upgrades, the exterior vents, vent covers and the dryer hose, were worth the additional expense. They promised to be here between 8:00 and 8:30 A.M. They arrived at 8:07. The job took less that 2 1/2 hours. They left my home very clean. I will hire them again.
Recent Review: Great company. They installed the heat pump at my home in 2004 and have serviced it since then. They are very responsive to all service calls (even on weekends), always very professional and willing to explain what problems they have found, how they will fix it and the cost. I have found their prices to be very competitive.

Recent Review: Tim Hatfield provided excellent information on the pros and cons of repairing versus replacing. He was able to meet at my house in the evening time as that was the only way to accommodate my busy schedule. Tim was not at all a high pressure salesperson. Instead, he shared his expertise, was honest and took the time to explain about the differences in models, types of gas connections, and by the end of our meeting was able to provide me with a final install cost and financing incentives. Tim was able to schedule the install before he left my home. The installers arrived promptly at their scheduled time, introduced themselves and quickly went to work. They removed the existing unit inside the garage and outside the house a replaced them with new units and installed and programmed a new digital thermostat. They worked from inside and under the house to replace the existing duct work to ensure maximum efficiency of my new unit. When the installers completed the job, there was no sign of them being there. They removed all the old unit pieces, venting material and no debris was left inside my home or out. Job well done Philbrick Heating and Cooling!! You have exceeded the expectations of this customer and I will continue to recommend you to everyone I know. Thank you for making my home air and heating comfortable again.
Recent Review: I installed fireplace logs and had them route the gas lines from the basement to the fireplace. There were some electrical wiring involved too. They have also installed my central air conditioner and central heat to my 2 story garage and did such a good job so I knew I could count on them for this little job. It was hard to find good reputable contractors, but these guys here were top notch.
I called Stokley's in the afternoon of July 26th because my air conditioner stopped working, and they had a coupon offer for a service call and diagnostic check for $59. They also had an "A" rating on Angie's list with good reviews. Keith came over the next morning (7/27) and quickly diagnosed the problem and replaced a broken part on the spot. My A/C was immediately up & running and my house is cool once again! Keith was punctual, professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and personable. I highly recommend this company, and I will not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Came home from vacation on Sunday evening to a very hot house. Central air was not working. I did not think I could find anyone to come out on a Sunday night that also was a holiday weekend. I called they took all my information and I explained what was going on. They said they would contact the tech on call and would call me back. I had my doubts as it was around 9:15pm. However, I was very happy when within 15 minutes I had a call back. They said the tech would be at my house between 10-11pm. He arrived at my house just a few minutes past 10pm. He was extremely professional, polite and quickly diagnosed what was wrong. Within 30 minutes the problem was solved. I had not changed the filter on one of the vents as I should have. The tech explained what happened and was very informative. I did not know that not changing the filters timely could cause the central air to freeze up. I appreciated that he took the time to explain in a very friendly way. He said he would check back at 9:00am the next day just to be sure the central air was working well. He arrived just after 9 this morning checked on us. He added some Freon and told us to call anytime if we needed anything. I sit here in my nice cool house thankful they were able to come out and fix the problem so quickly.

I was called to inform me that the crew was on their way ahead of time and they showed up a few minutes ahead of time. They got right to work and worked all day, from 9 until nearly 6:00 to make sure that everything was connected and running properly. They cleaned up everything and hauled away the old. They were thorough and polite. Good job, I would say!

Very professional. Contacted me for an appointment immediately and provided an appointment within 24 hours of initial contact. The owner came to my home with another technician and they both were extremely professional and knowledgable. They explained everything they were doing and kept me well informed as the visit progressed. I felt very confident with their diagnosis and recommendations. I will definitely call them if I experience any issues with my air conditioner and/or heater.

We have used this company before and our experience has always been excellent. Their mechanics and helpers are very professional and courteous. The mechanics are experienced and well-trained. The lead mechanic explained why they recommended the product they installed as opposed to our other 2 smaller a/c units. All 3 units had been installed approximately 6 years ago and should have lasted in the neighborhood of 10 years. The smaller units are still operating, but we use 1 rarely and the other is used only at night in a separate space. On this particular job, we were very grateful for their promptness and efficiency.: it was really hot! As always, they cleaned up and removed all debris. Yet another excellent experience with Applied Mechanical Resources.

The estimator arrived as scheduled (on Friday, July 24), looked at my old system, and recommended a new system that was highly rated in July by a consumer magazine. I elected to replace my furnace along with the air conditioner. On Monday, someone came to measure the spaces involved, and on Tuesday the new system was installed. The three technicians removed the old furnace and air conditioner, and installed the new units. They were on time, polite and efficient.
