"First of all the communication with Agata at
was very pleasant. I had to change my apt a couple of times do to demands at work, and she" was always able to provide me with quick, convenient, and acceptable options. Second, the sales man
was very knowledgeable and professional. He was able to help me understand the problems and issues, as well as all of my options. They were the cheapest quote I received, but I was able to have a family member fix the old furnace for now.

were the service technicians. We had water spots on our ceiling and had them come out to check for a leak from" the a/c unit. They completed a thorough
for a leak. As a last resort they had to cut a hole in the ceiling. This is a rental property and we needed to be sure that there wasn't an active leak. I was appreciative of the time they spent in searching for any possible leaks and in the time they spent explaining everything that they did. They also inspected and cleaned the outside unit.

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 heating and cooling systems work more efficiently and last longer by tending to regular maintenance. Some things, like changing the furnace filter, can easily be done by the homeowner.

Before you start a renovation project, ask yourself, "Do I need a permit for this?" In Chicago, the answer is probably yes.

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.

It went very well. The tech,

, was very polite and professional. he was able to find my problem and correctly diagnose it very quickly. The sales man,

Pedota, I talked to as a result was professional, courteous and punctual. The repair was going to be much more costly than I expected. I decided not to have the work done at that time.
- James M.

Great job and I'm very satisfied with their work. Although I had requested additional work beyond those items noted above, they recommend waiting and took the time to explain why. I really appreciated their honesty and frankly, their decision to defer work when practical. Many would not.
Before I praise them too much, however, let me pass along the bad news: they charged $65 to come out to assess the situation in order to determine what work had to be done. While I can appreciate their interest in discouraging people who waste their time with requesting estimates, I would have liked to see this charge waived once I hired them to perform the work. Also, the amount listed above does not include their water shutoff charge since that was only applicable because the work was performed in a high ride condo.
The good news: Outstanding service and excellent quality. First off, they obtained replacement parts for a 53 year old shower valve!!! That alone was worth the cost as it prevented a mini-bathroom remodel! They were very timely and accurate with their estimates, very pleasant to deal with and addressed all my questions satisfactorily. They also took the time to point out areas of concern which may result in future issues.
- Douglas W.

It went well. Just want to share the non emergency rate charged.

Note that $29 trip fee cannot be waived if $50 coupon is used.

was great. I bought the AC "tune up" offered by Angie's List. Scheduling was easy, and the technician showed up on time. He checked everything out, added Freon (or whatever it is now) and pointed out that my thermostat was showing the wrong temperature. No wonder I could never get the AC down to 75 degrees!...More /> He offered to replace the thermostat (for an additional charge), but luckily I have installed a few thermostats in apartments I have lived in, so I can do it myself.
He was not pushy trying to sell other services that I did not need. I appreciated that. I will definitely use them in the future.
- Matthew B.

Initially, they came out in May to refill the A/C since it wasn't cooling. We decided to wait and see about further work; wanted to see if the new charge held to determine if it leaked down over winter or had been leaking over the past several years. In August it was clear that there was a substantial leak. They came out again at no charge to give me a quick refill to hold out until they could come again and replace the evaporator (where they found several leaks). I requested an all aluminum evaporator (to prevent formicary corrosion). They spent the time to find a suitable core. Installation day went well - all was done in two hours. They came on time.
The only thing I wish could be changed was that the new copper connections were cleaned prior to brazing, and that the system be nitrogen purged prior to brazing to prevent any oxidation inside the new pipes. However, I'm a perfectionist and it is highly likely that I don't have anything to worry about here. The system is working great since the repair. Project cost was $200 less than other bids.
- Brian F.

Great! Replaced bad part other company could not find or figure out the problem. Gave estimate on new unit when asked (for the future)but wasn't pushy at all. Did the job. Very matter of fact. Old unit still going strong. Hope they never change. Will contact them first when time for a new unit.
- neal W.

We purchased a deal for this service, and

responded promptly. We set up the date, and he arrived on time. He did the work in a reasonable amount of time (less than 1 1/2 hours) and had a professional manner. We were pleased.
- Joan P.

A different provider quoted me $2000+ to correct the problem.
