Reviews in Boston for Central AC Repair

SDP Plumbing Heating & Cooling
5.0
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.

I called Fire and Ice in the morning and spoke with Arthur. He said that he would be able to come late that day. He followed up with a text saying he was on his way and arrived at 5pm. He diagnosed the problem immediately (a failed capacitor) and fixed it quickly. He also gave me advice on maintaining the unit. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. I will use him for all of my future HVAC needs.

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.

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.

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.

After having an installer that wasn't the greatest and having problems I called around to have someone else look at it. The second person I hired was here for 45 minutes (temp fix until he drove away), took $110, did nothing, told me he would be back in 3 weeks and never heard from him again. Then I called Garrett. He was able to diagnose the problem and order the part. He was told from the mfg it would be a month before the part came in but due to his diligence it was installed two weeks later! How great it is to have my central AC back! He wasn't the cheapest HVAC contractor out there but hey, you get what you pay for. He did, however, do his best to keep costs down. He was punctual, courteous and someone I would definitely hire again. Thanks

Service technician arrived on time as scheduled. He checked the operation of the condenser and evaporator and determined that the system was operating as it should. He should have but didn't use a thermometer to check the temperature of the air output at any of the room registers. I didn't think of it at the time or I would have asked him to do so.

I really can not properly rate Sila as I will explain below: I signed-up for the central air tune up in early May but did not hear anything from them for almost a month. Being the first time I used Angie's List I was not really sure how things worked, but I eventually called Sila and it almost seemed like they were not even aware of my service request. I did then arrange an appointment and had to wait another three or four weeks as they said that this was their busy season (which I am sure that it is). The service tech who came out arrived right on time and he was very pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. As it turned out, he said that I had a high end, two stage Carrier central air unit, and although he was willing to service the system, he strongly recommended that I contact a certified Carrier dealer to perform the service. As the unit was only three years old, he indicated that if any issues arose, the warranty might be voided. At this point I decided not to go forward with the service and no work was actually performed. As a result of this experience, I would suggest to others that they confirm with Sila that they do in fact handle their particular make and model of central air unit prior to making a service appointment. I should add that I have used Sila in the past for maintaining my gas furnace and have been extremely happy with their service in this area. Furthermore, I do plan to continue using Sila in the future for my heating system work.

Recent Review: I needed a plumber for the first time when we discovered our heat didn't work due to a leak in a boiler pipe. A plumber was able to come to our house within one day of me contacting them online through Angi's List. The first repair didn't seem to stop the leak so after two more days I contacted them again and plumber was at our house the next day to put a second repair on the pipe. That has worked well for a week so far and I don't anticipate any other problems. I had read good things about Baker-Elman's good service and now I can vouch for it myself. They will be the first company I call for any other plumbing needs I have and therefore I highly recommend them to others. They were highly professional, friendly to work with, and didn't charge for the second call because it was about the same repair which I think is very fair.

Recent Review: Lewis came to my home over the weekend on a summer day that was almost 100 degrees. My Central AC unit was not working at all. Within an hour he had it up and running and we were extremely grateful. My experience with Lewis is that he is pleasant, well educated in his field and effective in getting the work done in a timely manner. I would recommend this company to everyone.

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.

OVERALL THE WORKERS WERE PROFESSIONAL AND PROMPT. HOWEVER, THEY DID MAKE A MISTAKE IN THE INSTALLATION THAT REQUIRED A REPAIR VISIT TO ADDRESS. THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS COMPANY IS THE CARRIER EQUIPMENT THEY INSTALLED. I WOULDN'T USE THEM AGAIN EXCEPT FOR THAT.
