Dave from Columbia came to my place in Portland from Scappoose on a same-day appt, for what I thought was a dead furnace. (I had tons of smoke flow into the home after furnace turned on.) Rather than just presuming the furnace was dead or even the problem, Dave poked around. He discovered the smoke was from the fireplace/chimey and the furnace turning on had pulled air from the chimney, reignited ...

I had mentioned in my request for service, that the system is running slow, not cold enough, and that I knew what the problems were causing the issues. Columbia Northwest contacted me telling me they wanted $125 to even come out, which is ridiculously high, and that they would determine what was wrong with the system at that time. Since I already know what is wrong with the system, I did not appre...

I loved being able to see when the tech was going to be out due to the cool link that was provided to be prior to the visit. As a mom of two boys I’m super busy and see when he was going to show was awesome. They guys are always knowledgeable about their products and have great customer service.

It went extremely well. Punctuality was perfect. Paying attention to details was perfect. Knowledge and professionalism were perfect. The price was competitive. We interviewed 5 different providers. Ultimately, Columbia seemed to stand out best. We tried it, and we were quite happy with the choice. The service cost was for two independent air conditioner systems ( we have a large, long house), and...

I shopped at three places and they were tied for the lowest bid. Since they were the more responsive, I went with them. They were super fast and finished below the projected estimate. Also the installer was clean and friendly. I will use again! Matt

Our fireplace fan is 19 years old so I wanted a quote for a new, quieter fan. Had to pay $109.95 just for them to come out and take a look. Matthew was here for 15 minutes, he cleaned a spot on the fan, I’m assuming to get a part number or brand of fan. He mentioned that there was a dead mouse under there (not unusual with my cats sometimes). I paid him, he left and within a couple of days I recei...

We apologize for the experience. It is not our intent to create problems for our customers. We did respond via email to further evaluate the situation and ask you contact us for resolution. At that point we would have either discounted the tune up, or just credited the diagnostic charge since it seems the technician mistakenly did not reconnect the fan. Please reach out if there is anything we can...

They showed up on time. Did the job. After all was done I was very impressed with the final product. Alex was my installer and he was very nice and knowledgable. He explained it all. Even the the sale guy Dan was awesome. Would recommend this company to friends.

I called Columbia NW Heating & Cooling on Monday morning, and spoke with Blake. By 2pm that same day, Dave was at my home with a quote for my new furnace. I spoke with Andrea who schedules installation and by Saturday I had a new furnace installed by Ivan. I'm telling you I have never been happier with a company regarding efficiency and their friendliness & professionalism. I would recommend them ...

After cleaning the furnace, the technician could not get the blower fan to cycle on. He said the fan had to be replaced. He replaced the fan, charged me $800 and left. We noticed that, although the furnace was heating the house, it did not sound right. It kept cycling on and off. We called the technician back, He charged us another $109 house call fee and told us the control board had to be replac...
