American Weathermakers is 2nd HVAC company I called on 02/27/2020. The 1st company already diagnosed the problem was the igniter, and beyond the repair because of the safety reason. Since they do not have the license in Kildeer area, they cannot give the quote to replace the unit. The main reason I called American Weathermakers was to get the quote and the second opinion, and the American phone re...

American Weathermakers has a very intentional script to review with customer before making an appointment. We first confirm why your calling us service or sales. Service calls we also then review that there is a minimum charge of a diagnostic fee. It would be waived with repair or replacement during normal business hours, after hours we charge diagnostic plus repair. The service call is made. As p...

I'm pretty sure what needs to be repaired with my furnace based on other estimate and a specific fault code, yet this company refused to provide any type of ballpark estimate for the repair without paying $90 for a visit.

I think something was lost in how it was described to you. People call all the time and ask how much is this going to cost?. We want to make sure we are giving people the correct information and without us doing a diagnostic we are just guessing. But if you have a part you want quotes we no reason we cannot give you a exact price. But we would price out but caveat it with we will still diagnose th...

For 3 years the spring tuneup had required additional Freon. Checking the system and repair we’re going to be very costly. Since we’v been long-time customers and had repeated problems with a unit they’d installed several years ago, they checked and repaired at no additional cost to us. Unit is working fine now for 2 months.

Very well. At my request, technicians Victor and Eric came to replace and reroute corroding outdoor service lines to make them less conpicuous and safer--a project that was scheduled within a week of my inquiry. They arrived early, offered clear explanations and confirmation of what I requested before executing the work neatly, tidily, and in 3/4 of the estimated 4-our time. Result: well-functioni...
