did an outstanding job. First off, they didn't try to sell me more than I needed. Secondly, the technicians who came to install the" unit were respectful, informative, and took their time installing the unit and charging the line with coolant. They did not take any shortcuts and stayed until they were sure the unit was working well. I will use them anytime I have a heating or cooling issue. They were top-notch and I would recommend them to anyone.

"We thought our AC system was completely broken and expecting a hefty estimate to fix it (it was 95 deg F weather, so shopping was not really an option). Technician" was on time. He diagnosed that there was something relatively
wrong with the unit. He made the adjustment, did a tune up, and tested all aspects of the system, refrigerant pressures, etc. He said the system is working fine and charged for one hour labor. I appreciate this type of service, I was already resigned to the idea of thousands of dollars to fix or replace the unit. They provided honest advice so I recommend them.

Hiring an HVAC service

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

what should you pay.  You pay what you can afford.  1100sqft unit requires a min. of a two ton unit.  prices range from 2100-2900 depending upon the seers of the system.  13 seer is the min. the law requires  and for your situation with 1100 sqft.  do not worry about the seers as long as it is to code.  the bigger the house the more seers for economy.  1100 sqft is at the border line for a two ton system.  It is more important to have your new system balance, there is where you get the economy on your electric bill and gas.  Bryant, lenox, ruud and carrier are the brands you should stay with.All have the same basic factory warrantee and will last you longer than you expect as long as you maintain it with regular check ups twice a year once in the spring and then in the fall.

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.

Just purchased a dual voltage capacitor at Home Depot for $8.34 and it literally takes 5 minutes to remove and replace. Make sure to shut the power (pull the fuse), short ALL connection points on the capacitor and do it yourself. If anyone tries to charge you more than $150 total (for labor and parts) please chase them off your property.

My husband called these guys due to good ratings he read online. Spoke to one of the guys on the phone and let them know we had a 500.00 electric bill and we wanted to make sure it wasn't something to do with our AC. Also, we just bought the house a few months ago, we have a home warranty and we had it inspected in April so we were aware of most issues but the super high bill just made us think we needed a good second opinion.

came to the home, inspected everything that is on a 19 pt inspection list for most comparable companies. My husband said he was knowledgeable, nice and professional and did look at everything and came to the conclusion that our system is inefficient and draws high amps.
Houghton HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
said that
Houghton HVAC Contractors Provider Name Locked
would be calling to give a quote on a more efficient unit for the home. No one has called and it is now 6 weeks later. The bill came in the mail but no phone ever rang. I guess what makes me furious is that we already knew we had a 12 year old system therefore it is not the most up to date for efficiency but to charge almost 3x what others do for a service call and inspection is just crazy. I will never use nor recommend them.
After hearing that everything was fairly normal and our system was just really inefficient, we found that the former owners had not been very diligent at cleaning the lint trap to the dryer and that the ductwork was clogged. Having to dry clothes several times + 101 degree days is what was making our electric bill go through the roof. My husband spent hours taking down all the dryer ductwork, cleaning it out and now we have cut our kilowatt hours down from 131 per day to 78 per day. We are hoping this was the major culprit.
Bottom line, I had a maintenance agreement with my former home in VA that had a heat pump upstairs and a furnace down that didn't cost much more (275 for BOTH units) than what this one trip cost to learn what we already knew. The kicker, they didn't bother to contact us to review what could help. Look on Angie's List for 89$ or 97$ 19 point inspections because in a nutshell, that really is what was done. We were charged 3 hours x 95$ and I guess tax was added on to that. Know what you're in for when you call them.

The service tech found a few problems and provided a quote for immediate repair. If these items were not inspected, I may not have Air Conditioning during the hottest months of summer when really needed. It may have been even more expensive to repair later. I am very satisfied with the program and service. The provider did a very thorough job, courteous, prompt, efficient and professional!

Overall went very well. The installation personnel were excellent and were easy to work with. The system works great and am very pleased with the results. My only concern was that sometimes the response times, when questions were made via phone calls or emails to the main office, were somewhat slow. The only other thing was that it was difficult to talk directly with the owner after the initial contract and details were worked out. I had the cell phone of the head installer and he was really good to work with and his response was quick and timely. I really would have appreciated a call from the owner at some point during the installation and when the job was completed just as a follow-up to see how everything went and if I was satisfied. This was the only thing that kept me from giving them an overall excellent grade.

We came home from work and the ac wasn't working as usual. I tried a few things but the inside fan kept stopping. I found this provided and gave them a call at 8:30 a.m. The serviceman was at my house by 11:40 that same morning and was able to get the system running great again by 2:15 p.m.
I will be contacting this provided again for checkups, etc.
