Recent Review: Service was impeccable. I've had 3 companies out prior to Richmond Air and they were unable to diagnose the problem.One wanted to charge me for a leak search and to add freon $895. Another company said it wasn't worth it and I should just replace the unit and quoted $2800 to replace the unit Richmond Air came out promptly and fixed the problem the same day for just over $200.
Recent Review: Just so everyone knows, Mr. Duty has been convicted of crimes related to construction fraud. You can read about it at NBC12.com. All you have to do is a Google search of "Clayton Duty NBC 12". Be mindful of his history if you hire him.
Recent Review: Our air conditioner stopped working. We were informed by a large national company that the unit needed to be replaced. We were given a quote between 13 and $18,000. We sought a second opinion from short pump heating and air. Josh quickly determined the problem and had our unit working for a fraction of the cost.
Recent Review: Every time weve moved, we have taken them with us and continued to use them. They have always provided excellent service and we are real happy with them. The new unit works great and they let us know that the old one was needing replaced as they are the ones who serviced it for years. They are very easy to reach and came right on time.
Recent Review: Outside heat pump compressor bit the dust after a number of years. Needed replacement. Garage air handler unit was 25 years old Due to government controlled standards, both units needed to be compatible. It was necessary to replace both units. We have used Feder Mechanical Services for years and years ......and years. Steve, owner, is an awesome and most honest individual. He does his own work. No sub contractors etc. Steve tells it straight and offers the best deal possible. He kept our old units going for many a year and then some. He comes promptly when called! When he says he will be there, he is there. He comes in all kinds of weather to work on units. And he offers 24 hour emergency services. He wants to see his customers comfortable, and happy! Great guy! Great service
Recent Review: Air conditioner drain had a clog in attic. Va Climate got a panicked phone call and were out immediately. They were wonderful. Very calm and had everything fixed up immediately. They then offered to check the rest of our systems and caught another almost catastrophe! I will only use VA CLIMATE now! They are kind, quick and know what they are doing! They also keep track and let me know when it's time for a re check and schedule an appointment.
Recent Review: I had received numerous estimates for a malfunctioning AC unit. All quotes were astronomical. I indicated to numerous companies that I didn't want a high-end replacement...just a repair or low-cost replacement until I get ready to overhaul my entire HVAC system. No one could get the job done, but TB Flesher and his crew came in with a 100% can-do attitude, gave me a reasonably priced solution that had my air working again within about 30 minutes. Then the following morning, they called to make sure everything was still working to our satisfaction. I appreciate how he didn't try to sell me a lot of things I didn't want or need...but rather took a no-nonsense approach and solved the problem I wanted solved. When I am ready to re-do my system, these guys will be at the top of my list.
Recent Review: If you have a home warranty and have HVAC issues, request Tyler’s! We had such a great experience. Doug and David came to identify the issue. They were super professional and all around good guys. I then heard from Glenn who carefully walked me through the process of getting my system replaced. He was very detailed and set clear expectations. Long story short, the warranty company approved the new system. The guys came back out for the installation and did a phenomenal job. A week or so later, Glenn called to see how things were going. Overall, a great experience beginning to end. We will be using Tyler’s for all of our HVAC needs in the future.
Recent Review: Larry is so good he doesn't even have to advertise and has tons of work, but was able to work me in without any problem. ! My neighbor highly recommended him, but I got estimates from three of the big HVAC businessed first, and then Larry. I was leery at first of having just one person do the work, but oh, my goodness, I couldn't be happier. His estimate was very competitive and I even upgraded the gas furnace to a 95 percent rating. Some of the bigger companies prices were close to Larry's, but that was after deducting spring specials etc. While it's nice to think you were getting a big savings I wondered if the prices were inflated to begin with. His warranties were inline with the others and there was no push to sign up for maintenance packages -- the equipment and the workmanship stand on their own. Because he did all the work himself I was assured that everything was done thoroughly and right. He has his name and standards to live up to and you can't go wrong with him or the equipment he installs. He's a wonderful person and will address your needs with care and concern.
Michael and Chris did a comprehensive inspection and estimate. It was complicated because they had to increase the airflow and they had to figure out a way to add supply vent. The possible solutions were thoroughly explained beforehand. It took longer than they expected for the install because they tried to minimize the aesthetic impact when installing a new vent. They also had to find a way to get the inside unit into the crawlspace without digging up the well wall. They did a great job and did not charge more than the contract estimate even though it took more time, manpower and equipment than the calculated for the estimate. The crew members were all courteous, knowledgeable and efficient - exceedingly professional. They cleaned up completely when they were done including removal of the old system. Would definitely use Automatic Climate again.

AJames River Air Conditioning Company
We were replacing a gas furnace and a central air conditioner with a heat pump system and asked for bids from three companies. The quotes we received were all within a few hundred dollars of each other. However, the James River representative had shown us that, due to manufacturer rebates, they would be installing significantly more efficient equipment that we could get elsewhere. The sales representative from James River, Frank Mergler, was exceptionally well-informed about the available technology, the principles of home heating and cooling, and the current status of various rebates, government incentives and tax credits. In fact, he told us about some credits and rebates which were never even mentioned by the other companies. In addition, he had the installation crew perform some minor "tweaks" to our system to ensure that we would get the best possible results from our new equipment. We were also very favorably impressed by the installer, Scott, and a plumber, Chris (who was there to give us an estimate on some other work.) Both of them were very efficient, hard-working, knowledgeable, able to clearly answer any of our questions, and considerate of the cleanliness of our home. Overall, we had an "A+" experience with James River Air.

Emailed Daniel Armstrong that I had purchased the Big Deal and he responded right away. He explained that he wanted to come out and see my current system to make sure the unit and coils would work in my home before I was charged by Angie's List. He arrived on time, was courtneous, dressed neatly, took detailed measurements, asked questions and determined that everything would work. We scheduled the installation day, but I had to cancel and he rescheduled right away. Daniel and a co-worker arrived on time and the installation went smoothly and efficiently. I was able to work on a computer in another room the entire time. The job was completed several hours early and everything was clean and neat. Fantastic experience.

The compressor in the old unit died and definitely needed to be replaced. Danny clearly explained the cost-benefit options of replacing the whole system versus paying for the costly replacement compressor with a limited warranty. We also needed to consider what type of refrigerant the old system had (R-22) since it is being phased out in favor of a more efficient and environmentally friendly refrigerant, R410A. It would have been more costly in the long term to continue servicing the old system with out-of-date refrigerant. The warranty on the new system is 10 years versus a one year warranty on the replacement compressor. We are extremely satisfied with the new system because it cools the house much better and it is less costly to operate (more efficient). Thank you Danny for the excellent customer service and support!

Our 13 year old air conditioner died and we purchased a replacement from Durham and Sons. We got 4 estimates from different providers. RJ's estimate fell in the middle. We chose him based on the product he was offering, the price, the Angie's list reviews, the fact that he was willing to come out to see us in the evening so that we didn't have to take time off of work, and the fact that he was the only person who came out for the estimate who actually crawled around in the attic to take a look at the ductwork and pointed out that our dryer vent was no longer connected to the roof and was spreading lint all over the attic (a fire hazard). -- We had him fix that too. It took 4 full days to complete the installation because we had to move the whole system over by a foot which meant rebuilding the plenum and the box on which it sat. I appreciated that they loaned us a window a/c unit since it would have been miserably hot in the house without it. The job they did was beautiful. Even the FPL guy who came to inspect the duct work said it was the "prettiest" box he'd ever seen. Everything was neat and tidy and professionally done. And the Trane system we chose works great. I was very pleased with the the whole thing. It was rather expensive but I suspect there isn't much one can do about that unless you buy a piece of junk. The ethernet wiring job was an add on that we threw in figuring that we already had people in the attic anyway, we might as well run the wires too. It was a bit of a challenge because the wires originated in a room which had been added on to the house so there was no attic and the wires had to be run over the original concrete block exterior wall. But with the conduit they installed, we'll be able to run new wires if necessary in the future and now my TVs (and xbox) have a direct connection to the router. I felt that the wiring cost was a bit high but the job was well done.

Very good-all day install but finished in one day. I had purchased 2 digital thermostats & they installed them both at no additional charge. Also refunded me part of my service fee (tried adding freon before replacing) as we did the work within a certain timeframe.

Responsive and worked to diagnose issue. Simon cleaned the coils and worked diligently for many hours to get my extremely old HVAC to work. Unfortunately we already knew it was time to replace, which Automatic Climate was great at replacing in a timely manner (especially during the extremely hot month of July).

As good as it gets. After assessing the project and giving and estimate, the project was completed entirely in one day, despite a couple unforeseen conditions. The installer was professional, thorough, and very fair. I could not be happier with the quality and value I received.
