Reviews in Boston to Install Central AC

Fire & Ice HVAC LLC
5.0
My central ac stopped working on Sunday afternoon when the temp was 93 degrees. He was at my house within the hour and fixed the problem (broken capacitor) within 20 minutes. He also offered to check and replace our air filters and offered his professional opinion on a broken pipe outside our house. He was professional, polite, and prompt. Would definitely use again!

After a regular tune-up of central AC, technician said a couple of parts might need to be replaced, but system was old (about 19 years) and used obsolete refrigerant, so I might consider replacement. Sila sent a project manager to review system. He spent about 45 minutes at house, taking measurements, talking to me about what I wanted, and suggesting options. They apparently deal exclusively with Lennox products. He gave me an estimate of a little over $10,000 for a new furnace, AC, and a bypass humidifier, which I hadn't had before. There was no hard sell; it felt like a professional presentation. (I got an estimate from another company. The guy spent about 15 minutes at the house, which didn't seem like enough time to consider what the house might need and what I was looking for in a major project. He sent an estimate that was a little lower, for American Standard products, but it wasn't exactly an apples-to-apples comparison. I didn't get the same professional vibe.) As I was still considering the offer from Sila and was close to deciding to use them, the project manager informed me they had an opening in the schedule for 2 days later and offered a bit of a discount if I took that date, so I accepted. The crew came at the appointed time and spent about 10 hours doing the installation. They had a professional attitude and tried to be as little disruptive as possible and cleaned up after themselves. The system has been working fine since then. The new AC is quieter than the old one and is supposed to be more energy efficient. The week after the installation they sent someone to check it out, check the refrigerant level, explain how things work, etc.

Bryan and his team, including Jimmy and everyone else, is very professional, friendly, and punctual. My central air conditioning system was 23 years old and had been working fine (York brand), but then needed repair, but such an old system has old refrigerant. Bryan replaced the entire system, including the compressor outside, the air handler in the attic, and all the ductwork. The new ductwork provided better air flow, and a few additional vents were installed. Bryan subcontracted the ductwork, but this turned out excellent, with a few additional vents for better placement than in the original installation. The ducts are insulated, unlike the original installation. The ducts are routed over the mid-span rafter ties, rather than along the floor of the attic as in the original installation, so I have somewhat better access and storage space in my attic now. There is easy access to the air filter, which is a 2-inch-thick pleated filter, rather than the older-style one-inch-thick filter. July is a bad time to find an air conditioner contractor. I contacted five contractors. Four responded. Bryan came over the next day, while none of the others could come within a few weeks. Bryan quoted the day after that. Then the next day, he brought over two temporary air conditioner units (the kind that roll around on wheels and have a duct out a window) so we were ok in our bedroom and kitchen. A couple of days later he brought over a third such unit. That kept us comfortable until the Rheem units arrived and he could install them. Our drop-down attic stairs needed replacement before work could begin. Bryan recommend a contractor who did excellent work, replacing our 37-year-old, spring-loaded wooden stairs with hydraulic (or pneumatic) aluminum stairs. This work including replacing wooden molding and painting that ended up looking as good as the original installation. There was no damage to any interior walls, molding, or handrails during any of the work, including removing the old air handler and ductwork from the attic and installation of the new air handler and ductwork. Bryan sped up the job by doing everything as soon as possible, such as installing the compressor outside and the air handler in the attic while waiting for the ductwork installation. Bryan arranged an electrician the very next morning after ductwork installation. All old scrap metal, including the old compressor, air handler, and ducting was picked up the very same day that it was hauled down from the attic and onto my driveway. They chose a reasonable location that was out of sight and wouldn't damage my grass, but it was nice that it was all removed right away. Bryan filled out all paperwork for me for the energy rebate. All I had to do was sign it and mail it, so that was very convenient. This review is for a brand-new 3-ton Rheem central air conditioning system, completely separate from my heating system and its ducts. .

Replaced existing central air with American Standard air handler and compressor, lines, and reworked existing duct work. Jamie was very prompt, knowledgeable, and professional. On the day of installation, everyone showed up on time and ready to work. Mr.Hooper came to go over everything and answer any questions. Each person was very professional. The work was completed on time, and my house and yard were left immaculate. Mr. Hooper came back at completion to make sure everything was completed and working properly. We would highly recommend Berry Mechanical. We look forward to using them for annual maintenance and any service calls.

My tech (Robert Duclos) provided great service and was able to diagnose the issue my unit was having. He did not try and upsell parts or services that were un-needed and provided honest assessment of the status of the system. He was able to further schedule consultation with other member of the Cotti-Johnson team to help plan our replacement of the failed unit. Luckily the diagnostic fee we paid can be applied to the purchase if we decide to use their bid for the replacement.

The sales person was courteous, friendly, provided a lot of information, and answered all my questions. He came for a consult, informed me that our previous AC system was overcapacity and would recommend a smaller unit as larger was less efficient. Since we were planning on getting a MASSsave program loan he quoted the exact equipment that they would recommend. We were very happy with their communication and work.

We were in the middle of the eastern Massachusetts heatwave of Memorial Day weekend 2015 and my central air conditioner would not work. I was in crisis as I have a very sick cancer patient here for whom the temperatures in the high 80's were dangerous. I quickly checked Angie's List for local emergency service providers, and found several. On that Monday afternoon, Memorial Day, I called Berry Mechanical's emergency number and quickly was connected to a very pleasant man who told me Mr. Allan Berry would be in touch the next morning. He called and came out to my home Tuesday morning and I had an estimate by afternoon. I had checked several other services for phone estimates, one of which was for $6,000 to $9,000. None said they could help me out in less than 2-3 weeks. Mr. Berry is a genuinely caring individual, and his emergency service man said he truly enjoys working for him and his company as they are all good people. Wednesday morning I paid a deposit of 50% for the a.c. condenser, and it was installed Thursday morning! His installation crew were wonderful young men, very considerate and pleasant and on time. I would use them again in a heartbeat! It was a perfect experience!

Office support and communication was excellent. Tech came and checked out the system, made a diagnosis, and recommended repairs. Office called when parts were received to provide a quote and schedule the work. Tech arrived when promised and made repairs. Working well 3 weeks later. Also had them stop by to provide a proposal for a new system. Sales guy arrived on time, checked out the house and existing system, made a recommendation and provided a price. We haven't yet decided what to do. My only somewhat negative comment relates to the high cost of the work. Probably an A rating if cost had been $400 rather than $600. But at least it appears to have been done right and they didn't waste my time.

Chris called about an hour and a half before the appointment to let me know he was running ahead of schedule and ask if it would be a problem to show up early. He arrived as promised and went right to work. After checking the outside unit first, Chris then came in to check the internal connections. He gave me all the readings and let me know the system was in great shape. We talked about some concerns with the old gas furnace and potentially replacing this year or next. Chris was timely, courteous and professional. I look forward to working with the company again.

Recent Review: They came when they said they would, they did the installation very professionally, and they cleaned up after themselves. My wife had most of the contact with the workers and she liked them a lot. Management was very communicative and resolved a couple small issues expeditiously. I selected Baker-Elman because they are certified as installers for the Eternal hot water heaters. They were slightly more expensive than their competitors but I am glad I went with them. This was a no hassle installation, yet it was complex enough that there could have been problems.

Recent Review: I had a great experience working with Cooling Unlimited. They installed central AC from scratch and also replaced my boiler and H/W heater. They were very professional, well organized and made sure the project went as smoothly as possible. The installers were very courteous and certainly knew what they were doing. The follow-up with MassSave rebates and inspections was also excellent. I would recommend them to anyone with HVAC needs. I worked with Jason on the estimates and paperwork, Mike on the planning, Joe led the boiler work, and sadly I did not catch the name of the lead on the AC work - but he was excellent too. The whole team was amazing.

Recent Review: Joe was able to schedule our initial appointment very quickly after we contacted him. He was able to send us a quote within 24 hours. Joe's quote was very complete and itemized everything we discussed. Joe had some great ideas for how to hide the columns, oil tank, radon equipment, furnace, sump pumps, etc in closets. Joe's company also installed a ductless system (in the basement as well as on the other two levels of the house), built several closets for storage, replaced all doors and windows, installed a new floor, walls, ceiling, lights, etc. We showed Joe a picture of the laundry closet we saw on-line from another website, and Joe was able to duplicate it perfectly. Joe was always available via email, text and telephone to go over any issues, problems, questions, etc. Any issues we had, Joe was able to resolve quickly. Joe has a team of very experienced and professional workers (electricians, plumbers, painters, carpenters, etc.). Joe added some extra small improvements at no charge to us, because he knew we had gone over budget (due to some unexpected costs/complications), and didn't want to "nickel and dime" us, to get some extra improvements taken care of. Joe takes a lot of pride in his work and wanted to make sure the job was done the right way. My husband and I are very pleased with the final result of the basement, it looks beautiful and we can't wait to start using it. We will definitely recommend Bertola Custom Homes & Remodeling to our neighbors, family, friends, co-workers, etc. We plan to hire Bertola Custom Homes and Remodeling for future projects because we know we will receive the same excellent job, attention to detail, fair pricing and level of comfort, that we received on this basement project. Thanks again Joe... you and your team did an awesome job! :)

Recent Review: This was an installation of central AC in an old victorian. Nothing about our installation was straightforward or easy but the crew did an amazing job. They came up with solutions to the issues we encountered and worked to keep things clean every day and minimize disruption and dust. I strongly recommend this company and can see why they are so highly rated on Angie's list.

Recent Review: Rather than indicate a specific service, I would like to talk about our relationship with 128. Being new to the Boston area several years ago, we needed a relationship with a heating and plumbing firm, an electrician and a general contractor. We found 128 Plumbing and have been thrilled with them since. They have installed central AC for us, fixed and maintained our heating system and have been available as needed for assorted plumbing issues. We have found them to be punctual, competent, honest and fair in all aspects of their dealings with us. They run it like a real business. They get back to you immediately and are honest in their assessments. Good firm to have a long term relationship with.

Medford, MA

Recent Review: Segio is a very professional and knowledgeable contractor who also happens to be a very decent, honest person. It was a pleasure working with him, and also with his team of Brazilian skilled tradesmen, despite the pain associated with any major renovation in one's home. He took on our job early in the summer and started the following week. Sergio could give us a better price by doing both bathrooms at once, while always leaving us a functioning toilet and--except for a few days--a working shower. Because Sergio juggles multiple jobs, and because of the unavailability of some tiles and the fact that we added extras like the foam insulation and the threshold-less shower along the way, there were occasional delays. However, the project moved steadily on. The final result looks and works great, and is a wonderful improvement over our old bathrooms. While all the workmen on Sergio's team were great, we particularly appreciated the fact that Fabrizio, the tile installer, went out of his way to make sure the project turned out well. On Sergio's recommendation we hired Sotiris Sotiropoulos of Spray Foam Insulation to insulate the bathrooms at a good price, which worked out well. Sergio's electrician, Edney Leite, also did some separate work for us to replace our several fuse boxes with a single modern breaker box, which we are very pleased with. On Sergio's advice, we bought most of our bathroom fixtures from Moniques, where Pat Viglirolo was great to work with. We bought our tiles from the Brazilians Eddie and Herman Souto at United Tile America.

Recent Review: I wanted to have my heating and air conditioner inspected and tuned up and Genove offered a service to do just that. The technician showed up on time (actually 10 minutes) early and was very helpful in explaining to me exactly what he was doing each step of the way. He inspected the blower unit up in my attic as well as the actual air conditioner unit on the exterior of the condo. He made sure everything was working properly and wrote down several things I can do periodically to make sure I continue to have a properly working system.

Recent Review: This exceeded my expectations. The repairman arrived within the hour time frame given. He then looked at the unit in the attic before locating the problem outside. He informed me that he'd located the issue but did not have the replacement part and let me know he would go to the shop and be back in about half an hour and was. He then fixed the issue and notified me that more coolant was needed, but was not pushy in any way. He explained the cost. He also noted that one part was making a noise which indicated it may fail in the next year, but was not push about replacing the part. Was very happy to have everything fixed in one visit the day after I made the call!

What do customers in Boston say about Central AC Installation?

Danny came out and gave us an estimate on our non functioning furnace as well as our old central a/c. . He took the time to explain what was wrong, what was needed and different options we could take. He was very polite and explained the current rebates available . He took more of an interest in us than the others who came out. His price was better and the equipment he was replacing it with was better than the others.. The installation went fine and we are very happy.
