Recent Review: 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.

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.

Recent Review: 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.

Recent Review: 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.

Recent Review: Were cheapest priced, and were very prompt and professional. Had been recommended to them by two different people independently, both of whom couldn't say enough good things about them. The a/c system works great, and when we considering what to install, they actually talked me out of purchasing a more expensive system from them. They were also extremely diligent in trying not to damage anything and cleaning up after themselves. In addition, have had my heating repaired by them, and again. When we were evaluating what to repair, they actually talked me out of replacing it, and repairing it instead. This to me is the sign of a good company that is up front and honest.

Recent Review: Called about 9 in the morning and was told they would get here in early afternoon. He arrived at about 1, checked air-conditioner and proceeded to fix it. The whole thing took about 45 min to 1 hour. They are great!

Recent Review: 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!

Have used these guys for multiple properties over the last couple of years.  Initially put in central a/c for me and did an OK job--they were prompt and clean, which was enough to get me to use them again.  I noticed a year later that I developed a roof leak--the flashing around one of the penetrations flexed and broke.  At another properties I had a freon leak.  First tech came out and said the most likely explanation was that my tenants were huffing the freon.  He refilled and it was gone again in a week.  I came out with the second tech, and saw an obvious leak (oil everywhere) in the condenser where some tubing had rubbed and developed a hole.  Called them once to fix a boiler.  They fixed it, but charged me for 5 fuses at $30/per.  Last straw--my 2.5 year old central a/c unit leaked.  They charged me $350 to diagnose a leaking coil.  Quoted $575 (or thereabouts) to repair.  When they arrived, the quote turned into $1250.  Tried to contact someone about that for about 2 months.  Never got a return phone call.  Finally talked to someone there and was told that I was "misquoted" initially.  He offered to do it for $1150.  No thanks.  My fault for sticking with them for so long, but at least I had the chance to get a good sample size.

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.

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).
