I set an appointment. One week wait for the first appointment. On the day of the appointment, in the afternoon I received a call and was told that they do not work on my brand of air conditioner. I took the afternoon off for this appointment. They completely wasted my time. Buyer beware!!!

Hi [Member Name Removed], You definitely have every right to be frustrated on this one, we screwed up. We initially scheduled the appointment but subsequently found out it is on a uncommon brand of ductless split system that we have very little experience with. We do not want to waste your time and money on something we do not have expertise in. I apologize for not only inconveniencing you but als...

Four months after having our furnace replaced, we're still having issues with it and keep getting incorrect or confusing information from the techs that visit. They tried and failed to replace the thermostat twice. The latest idea is that the furnace is overheating, which is something I think they should have figured out when doing the installation. The owner gets involved and it seems like things...

Outstanding. Our dedicated Shavitz technician Krzysztof is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. We truly appreciate having a dedicated person that is familiar with our home and units. He does a wonderful job of reviewing his findings and answers any questions we have about the service. Would highly recommend Shavitz and Krzysztof.

I'm very happy with project manager Rich Davis' expert and very helpful advice. The installation was an all day job. This is to be expected. Miguel, Jose, and Francisco are expert Carrier installers. They did a terrific job. They answered all my questions and explained things to my satisfaction and cleaned up, too. If you want your project done right with quality in mind, call Shavitz.

This was a complicated remedial project that took over 5 hours to complete. Craig knew exactly what he had to do when he arrived, and brought with him all the necessary equipment. He explained what he was going to do before he started, did the work, and then thoroughly tested all the equipment to make sure it was working properly. And, when one part didn't function correctly, he figured out how to...

This review relates to the work Craig K did today. He installed a new thermostat, and added new controls and modified others to allow staging of a condensing unit.

Diagnosis was quick. Tech (Cornelius M.) was excellent - highest rating - friendly, knowledgeable; mentioned other products, but no real hard sell. Blower motor used was aftermarket item - I have no idea about its reliability. Price for service was high, but maybe market rate - I have no basis for comparison. Price shown as "Approximate cost of service" includes $130 service fee.
