"This company gave me two furnace options, either fix the furnace for $400 or replace it for $2,000.00. I agreed to repair it for $400.00 they got really mad at" me but they did say they fixed it. Then once i paid them $400 dollars to fix it they told the tenant it was too dangerous to turn on but they never told me. i went over to my property a month later and found it empty, tenant had moved the furnace was not lite and the furnace had a note tied to it reading "do not light, furnace needs to be replaced" I lost my tenant and paid $400 for nothing.

-thomas N.

was the most professional company we have ever hired to do work in our home. Right from the start their communication was amazing. You" make an appointment; they confirm; the day of the appointment you receive an email stating the name of the person who will be at your home; and this communication continues throughout the job, even after you pay the bill!! They were on time, professional, detailed in their presentation, very courteous, and willing to answer any and all questions you may have. The work was impeccable. It took 2 days to install a brand new
heating and air-conditioning unit, humidifier, water heater, and furnace. We also had them core holes for the dryer vent and sump pump. The air conditioner is very efficient. We only used the heating system 2 times so far - but again, very efficient. They even come out for a follow-up check! I would absolutely recommend this company. We got 3 estimates and are so happy we went with

Hiring an HVAC service

The awkward-to-pronounce acronym stands for "heating, ventilation and air conditioning" which in many respects are completely different processes.

HVAC Maintenance

You can help your home's heating and cooling systems work more efficiently and last longer by tending to regular maintenance. Some tasks, such as changing the furnace filter, can easily be done by the homeowner.

Angie's Answers

There are many questions to answer before anyone can give you a price for your new system.  It's like calling a dealership and asking how much a new car is.  They need more details, too.

Call a few HVAC contractors in your area and ask for bids to replace your system.  Ask them what they recommend and why.  Then compare apples to apples.  A higher efficiency system will cost you more up front but will save you more on your energy bill.  However, be warned that some of the super high efficiency systems don't typically pay off in savings due to their higher parts and service costs down the road.

Be leary of contractors who quote you prices over the phone or internet without looking at your home.  They may be either inexperienced or will hit you with higher costs once on site due to things they didn't plan for and easily could have if they had just looked at the job in advance.  Many of the big box stores do this with their installation services for all kinds of things.

The only thing of importance, is the hvac professional you choose to use. Alot of manufacturer's pieces are built relatively the same, and will last about the same amount of time. The thing that matters most is what you can not compare between companies, and that is the installation. Purchasing a system is not like purchasing a car, where no matter where you buy it, they are all the same. Each installation is different, and usually what you are paying for is the level of expertise, and quality of the installation, the company who will actual give you the warranty, and the comfort that you will receive. Manufacturers warranties disappear every day. They always have a loophole where they can get out of paying, but your local dealer wants to keep you happy for future work, and to protect his reputation in the communiy. Look up 4 year old Nordyne and Goodman warranty problems. Choose the HVAC professional first. It will cost you the least in the long run. I have had to totally redo plenty of installations that were just performed because of an uncomfortable customer, and a system that keeps breaking down. The equipment is only as good as it's installation, and over 70% are not installed correctly.
Yes Jupiter. It depends on the severity of the situation, is the mold encapsulated in the insulation. If yes, than replace [insulation] it with new. Is it on the casing of the heater? If yes, clean it with a mold neutralizing metal cleaner. It's not a matter of finding something or someone to clean or address the existing mold. It's a matter of finding a contractor to rectify what is causing the mold grow. It's coming from excessive moisture in the air-handler unit. I can say with 100% surety you’re dealing with poor airflow and/or incorrect equipment sizing! Either issue will cause excessive icing of the evaporator coil, which leads to excessive condensate water in the system. The condensate will eventually overflow the drain pan leaving stagnant water in the air-handler housing, which leads to mold growth. I would not let any contractor do any kind of temporary repair, add any device like a UV light or air-cleaning product until the aforementioned is corrected. I talk a lot about this in my videos and on my website. It is the result of improper system design from unqualified contractors. There is a reason why some guys cost more than others, and this is one reason why!

I'd rate them equal,or close,as with several other brands. I'd be more concerned about the difference in installation and service down the road. Difficult to determine the difference ,but asking for detailed info about their installation,may convince you to choose one over the other.

The Dept. of Energy states that poor installations can cause a 30% efficiency loss! Plus with Gas their are saftey issues,venting properly etc.,and of couse the need for a "low Level" Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
I think maybe you are confusing SEER, which is an efficiency-related rating (higher SEER means more effective use of the electric power used to compress the gas), and TONS rating, which is a measure of the total cooling power of the system. (Tons used to mean how many tons per hour of ice was used in evaporative cooling building systems - a Refrigeration or Cooling Ton equals 12,000 Btu/Hour of energy exchange. A BTU, which is another antique measure but still used, is the energy needed to change the temperature of a pound of water one degree fahrenheit. Unfortunately, because of varying humidity and evaporation, this is not readily related to house air heating or cooling without a lot of assumptions and some computations. Relating this to today's world - the Manuals BayAreaAc referred to account for all these energy conversions and determine an estimated cooling (or heating) requirement for your specific house. The type of construction, solar exposure, general climatic conditions such as average temperatures, humidity, and hottest and coldest normal ambient temperatures and desired inside temperture are all taken into account in the more sophisticated versions of the analysis, so there is no "standard", though a rough old rule of thumb was about 1 ton of cooling per 500SF of house. Obviously, this was a WAG only because it did not account for insulation, type of roofing, whether you live in Alaska or Miami, etc. The ACCA manuals do a very simplified form of evaluation to arrive at a "design", which generally will be adequate. OF course, highly precise calculations are not really needed because A/C units generally come in even ton ratings - so if you are at say 2.6 ton requirement you will be getting a 3-ton unit anyway. SEER ratings are not a direct measure of efficiency, but the relative difference between ratings gives you good idea of the unit's relative efficency in using electricity - so a 16 SEER should be about 19% more efficient (so roughly comparable lower electricity bill) than a comparably sized 13 SEER unit. 13 SEER is the lowest efficiency currently allowed to be built for general use, 19 SEER is about the highest efficiency made by pretty much all manufacturers, and about 25 SEER is the highest rated though very pricey shelf-item units, though special construction custom units can reach about 30 SEER. Note however, like any government sponsored rating, much of it is hooey when you get down to it - for instance, SEER ratings are figured based on 80 degree inside air temp and 82 degrees outside, when that is far from the normal case of mid to low seventies inside and high eighties or above outdoors. This makes the absolute SEER rating meaningless, but relative numbers still have meaning in comparing units. Note these efficiency ratings are for conventional air conditoners and heat pumps working in ambient air conditions. Ground sourced Geothermal or lake/river exchange cooling units, though initially more expensive in most cases, can greatly exceed the air-exchange unit efficiencies because they are exchanging heat with cold natural water rather than with a high-temperature outside air, and instead of continually compressing a gas are just circulating cold water. I worked on one geothermal cooling project which had almost infinite efficiency, which of course makes no sense - but the only power was for sensors and a control valve as the water flow was single-pass under gravity flow, so no power was used to circulate the water.

Assuming you already have an installed units with all ductwork and so forth, small square footage furnace and AC can generally run anywhere form $2000-$5000 for each unit, or about $4000-10000 for a combined unit, depending on ease of installation, etc. This assumes your existing plumbing, electrical, ductwork, etc are directed suitable, so it is merely a matter of cutting  in a new unit and hooking it up. The lowest price would be for a minimally efficient unit, the upper number for highest efficiency.

If you are changing the type of heat (baseboard to forced air or electric to gas, for instance) or installing AC from scratch, then running power, ductwork, etc can up to double that number.

If you live near the coast (and depending on how hot you will let the condo get before cooling kicks in) the cost savings of a high efficiency unit might not pay for itself. Of course, if you are in the San Gabriel Mountains and really need winter heat, or in the Mohave desert or inland valley area and really need serious air conditioning, then a high efficiency unit (which can cost twice as much) might pay for itself in 5-10 years.

Your utility company (companies if gas heat with electric AC) can help with guides on how much your savings might be with different efficiencies, and may have an energy efficiency rebate program for efficient units. Also, the California Energy Commission has information and online calculators for that, as well as rebate programs for energy efficiency. There is also a federal energy efficiency rebate program (though it is generally limited to a tax credit equal to 10% of the cost of energy efficient retrofits, unless it is considered an "alternative energy" system). Pay attnetion to these energy rebate programs - I have a neighbor who, between state and federal program, had the entire cost of his insulation upgrade and furnace/hot wate heater system replacement covered in toto, except for few hundred $ for the initial energy audit. About $8000 in work for about $300, with about $100/month reduction in gas bills.

As always with condo units, check with the condo manager and the bylaws to find out what the rules are - some condos require matching units or installation by a certain contractor for ease of maintenance, and in many condos the heating and AC are actually the responsibility of the condo association or the bylaws require that the association handle the installation but you pay the cost, etc. Also, major work of this type usually has to be coordinated with the condo manager, and there may be time of day limitations on work hours, etc.

And of course make sure your HVAC contractor, if you end up choosing him, is licensed, bonded, insured, and well recommended, and whether any repairs to walls, floors, ceiling etc necessitated by replacing the system are or are not covered in his bid (he would subcontract this out, or more likely tell you that you need a general contractor to supervize plumber, electrician, plasterer, painter, flooring contractor, etc).

The plumber,

, was the same plumber from
El Dorado HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
who serviced my hot water heater through an Angie's List special deal a month earlier. He was very professional, polite and knowledgable, and completed two major projects in two hours. The new plumbing looks and performs like quality workmanship.
Despite the fact that he was an hour late, and the work isn't cheap, I am quite satisfied. I will definitely call them again if I need any more service.

There was supposed to be a check ,we had had a service contract with Brothers for about a year. The service tech named

came and checked and spent over an hour under our house banging and hammering and talking to himself. We could hear him from our living room. After about an hour he came up and stated that our heater was still under warranty and we needed a heat strip replaced . My husband ask him could we see the part and he kept hem hawing it would take too long to take the part off for my husband to see. While I was talking to the customer service

he started back under the house and I told him not to go now we would get someone else to fix it but he went anyway and I hollered at him to come out, I ask ask the lady on the phone to call him off and about 5 minutes later he came out with the part that was obviously cut there was no burn
El Dorado HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
and there was metal on the part, clean metal like a clean cut. He took it off in under five minutes and cut the part. We thought it was supposed to be difficult part to take off. This had been our third check and some service is always needed but this was the straw that broke the camels back. He said we needed a light than a surge protector and than today. The big problem is they never complete the check up. They are supposed to check plumbing and heating and they never complete the complete check up ,check the filters or anything else. They just start selling us products after yesterdays experience we are done.
The grade would have been an F but

the only good tech we saw so far put the new part back on. With all the repairs we have put in over 1000.00 out of pocket on warranty work. Our unit is just four years old.

has been my go to AC/Heater man since 2006. He is a great guy and tells you how it is. He is honest and trustworthy. My mom and rest of the family use him as well for their homes. I can count on him anytime I have any issues.
- Dean & Carola L.

The air conditioner was serviced as requested. You felt like they wanted your money-similar of getting a price like buying a car-kept referring to the manager for price.

Service man arrived on time. Was very pleasant and professional. Checked out the system thoroughly inside and out. Would definetly recommend.
- Michele B.

I was extremely pleased with the service extended. He showed me where to replace the filter and how often which I was not sure of. Very professional and courteous. Also, when I called to set up an appointment, the gentleman I spoke with was very pleasant. Will be calling them in the spring for the AC.
