Description Of Work: Replaced an air conditioner and furnace with a heat pump and back-up furnace. Detailed duct re-working by new unit. Maintenance check-ups (spring and fall).
Member Comments: The bidding and scheduling process went off without a hitch. Eric is very knowledgeable and active in the local installers continuing-education classes from what I could gather from the web. The estimate was given after a home energy audit, and Eric did a good job of explaining the sizing of the a/c based on living area square footage and the age of the ducts (about 45 years old). And, the estimate came in at $1,200 less than the closest competitor; there were four bids in all.
On installation day, Eric and his crew came out on time and proceeded to remove the old a/c and furnace; the crew was respectful and diligent, answering any questions or addressing any concerns I had. The installation took longer than expected–the installers had to come back for a half-day of work the next day–and, luckily, it was cool for August. It turns out that a recall was issued by the manufacturer of the heat pump (Ruud), and Eric performed that maintenance excellently. The heat pump and back-up furnace have been stellar, the new system has been trouble-free for two years, and Eric more
Two years of free maintenance check-ups were included with the installation (spring and fall), and the same person (Darren) comes to perform them; he’s called the manufacturer of the programmable thermostat twice to make some pretty advanced adjustments during the check-ups.
Overall, a great experience from a mom and pop company that knows the technology and isn’t pushy about possible “upgrades” or “better systems.” I have no reservations about staying with them for future check-ups and equipment updates.
