Reviews in Chicago to Repair Cracked Heat Exchangers

Besco Air Inc
5.0
Inspect furnace specifically as a second opinion to determine if heat exchanger requires replacement. Sergio from Besco determined heat exchanger is OK, but inducer motor should be replaced because bearings are going.

The service man arrived on time, performed thorough inspection and found a crack in the furnace heat exchanger. Using a remote video camera he was able to show me the surface condition of the heat exchanger and the crack.

Baethke and Deljo both reported my heat exchanger was bad and that I needed to replace my entire furnace. Besco was willing to replace my heat exchanger for a lower cost than replacing my furnace. In performing the work, Jim reported that, actually, my heat exchanger was perfectly fine and this work was unnecessary--much less replacing my entire furnace. Jim found the real source of the issue and fixed that, and Besco worked with me so that I didn't have to pay for a heat exchanger I didn't need. Two negatives: --Demeanor. Serviceman Jim, while he took care of me, was openly complaining about the work at hand, and generally was a bit gruff. --Organization. The agreed timeline for the reimbursement of my money for the second heat exchanger was also not adhered to, and it actually was more than 2 months before my money was refunded.

Everything went well. They have worked for me for several years, but it seems there is always a major expense when they come for routine maintenance.

Jamie was very professional, he reached out immediate I posted a request on Angie's List. He gave me a number of option and took time to explain each of the options. I eventually went with Amana. Jamie was kind enough to register my new system with Amana for a lifetime warranty and submitted a rebate for me with Comed. The guys who came out to do the installation were also very professional, they completed the installation same day.

Ibbotson Heating & Air Conditioning Co
5.0
Ibbotson was able to get a service tech to my house within hours of my call. It wasn't an emergency but without heat, we'd have had a very cold night or two. I really appreciate that they were able to get my boiler up and running that day. The tech was courteous & knowledgeable. He recognized the problem quickly and even though the repair was going to take longer than he'd expected, he stayed until it was done. I didn't get the impression that Ibbotson was pressuring him to get moving to his next appointment. Very professional company all across the board.

Air-Rite Heating & Cooling Inc
5.0
Had a problem with my furnace last winter. Called in a different company, and they fixed the problem, and while there, offered to check my heat exchanger. They found it to be cracked and said the furnace needed to be replaced, and estimated $2,500-$3,000. Since the heating season was almost over, I held off on replacing the furnace, and installed a carbon monoxide detector as a precaution. In the fall, I wanted to make sure the furnace was in good working order for the upcoming winter. I wanted to get a second opinion, since the first one was basically unsolicited. I searched for a company that was local to my home(North Aurora) and came across Air-rite. The service technician came out, not only did the camera inspection (like the previous company) but also disassembled the furnace to get a better look. The heat exchanger was cracked, but not severely. The technician then read thru my owners manual and found that the furnace was still under warranty for parts (not labor) and said the furnace could be repaired for about 1/4 of the cost of replacing it. He ordered the part, and when it came in came back and installed it. Very quick, very professional, explained everything he was doing clearly and concisely. My only complaint was the appointment to replair the furnace had to be rescheduled at the last minute due to the technician becoming ill, and I had already scheduled time off of work. Very pleased with the service, and signed up for annual maintenance plan based on how well the experience went.

Went very well. The AC was noticeably cooler once the heat exchanger was cleaned and the technician also discovered that the drain line was clogged. He fixed the clog and cleaned the system quickly and professionally.

Leith Heating & Cooling Inc.
5.0
I reported no heat. Leith inspected and showed me with smart phone photo that heat exchanger was cracked. Technician advised of price to replace heat exchanger on my 14 year old furnace, and how that compared to replacing furnace entirely. Decised to replace furnace entirely. Leith made appoiintment to come back and replace furnace. It too about two hours. Excellent, courteous service.

Very well. Jake was very professional, polite, patient and thorough. Larkin (from the office) was great also. She kept us up on everything. The workers (installers) worked quickly. Left the house clean. David the supervisor manager came over a week later to double check on how everything is running and explained everything again. From beginning to end it was a great experience.

The blower motor within the furnace stopped working on 7/30. Tom from Discount Heating arrived on schedule on Monday, 8/2. A diagnostic check of the system revealed that the heat exchanger contained cracks and also needed replacing. Parts were ordered and tom arrived back to install them on time on 8/4. The installation took approx 2 hours to complete. Tom completed the work in a very professional manner answering all questions that I asked.

Recent Review: Four Seasons was able to setup an immediate appointment (same day if needed) and I chose for them to come the following morning. Customer Service and response is A+. The repairman provided up front estimates for repairs and the repairs were completed quickly and matched estimates. Price seemed a little higher (big markup on labor), but the repairs were done quickly and A/C is working again. They also recommended replacing the furnace rather than fixing/replacing heat exchanger. Estimates seem to be in line with other companies.
