Poston Brothers Heating & Cooling

It went really well. Ended up replacing the entire furnace for a little more than another company quoted to repair the heat exchanger. Responded the same day and installed the next.

I called Cincinnati Heating and Air Conditioning to give me a second opinion on a cracked heat exchanger reported to me by a tech from Schneller/Knochelman. Cameron came out and thoroughly checked out the unit and informed me it was fine. CO levels normal. Not the 600+ ppm reported to me by the other tech. Even better than finding out I didn't need a new furnace or expensive repair there was NO CHARGE for a second opinion! Cincinnati Heating and Air Conditioning get my business going forward. They rock!

FOUND THAT HEAT EXCHANGER WAS RUSTY AND WOULD NEED REPLACED EVENTUALLY, ON A SCALE OF 3/5. NOT URGENT. ONE WEEK LATER, INSPECTED BY OUR WARRANTY COMPANY AND FOUND THAT IT HAD A 2' CRACK IN THE HEAT EXCHANGER. THE FURNACE IMMEDIATELY DISABLED BY THE WARRANTY COMPANY BECAUSE OF THE EXTREME RISK UNTIL IT IS REPAIRED. HILL-AIR MISSED A CRACKED HEAT EXCHANGER. IN OUR ESTIMATION, THAT IS INEXCUSABLE. HAD WE NOT ACTED WITH THE OTHER EVALUATION, WE MIGHT HAVE DELAYED UNTIL IT WAS TOO LATE. CRACKED HEAT EXCHANGERS ARE ONE WAY THAT CARBON MONOXIDE FROM A FAULTY BURNER LEAKS INTO THE HOUSE. WE NEARLY DIED FROM CARBON MONOXIDE AT ANOTHER HOME BECAUSE THE HEAT EXCHANGER WAS CRACKED.

Toby Spivey answered my initial request for a consultation expeditiously and came right out and provided a consultation on my furnace. He provided me with all my options and respected my decision. I opted to have the heat exchangers replaced. He did an outstanding job!!! He arrived exactly at the time we arranged. He was professional, competent, trustworthy, and had a strong work ethic. He explained everything thoroughly. His price was reasonable and I would highly recommend him to all who are in need of any furnace service.

It went very well, everyone arrived on time and the installation was well done. There were two trips involved one to install the heat pump and one for the warranty repair on the furnace. I would not have know about the free heat exchanger repair if it was not mentioned during the quotation. Other vendors that quoted on the job did not catch that.

Corcoran & Harnist Heating & AC
5.0
A first class act! Our furnace had been out for over a week in zero degree weather. Another company had failed to fix the furnace and we awoke on a sub-zero Sunday morning to another day of frigid cold. Corcoran and Harnist arrived on a Sunday emergency call in no time (traveling across town from the west side to extreme east side). They fixed our furnace instantly (took other guys about two days and it still didn't work), and came out a second time to double check whether we should consider buying a new furnace. They were honest and told us it would not be worth the cost to invest in a new furnace -- HONEST, PROFESSIONAL, TRUSTWORTHY and EXPERT. We hired them again to install a new humidifier. They were not the cheapest, but they were definitely the most responsive, professional and trustworthy. They even anchored down a plumbing line in the basement for me at no additional charge. And they clean up after themselves. I will hire this company again without hesitation because they are honest and really know their stuff.

This company is awesome. We have used them for several years to fix our heating and a/c issues. They always make sure the job gets done right even if it means coming back at no cost. I will only use this company for my heating and a/c issues.

Bockrath Heating & Cooling
5.0
I called at last minute hoping to get an appointment this week and then had to change it two more times. All my fault. Bockrath was accommodating and arrived on time. He cleaned & checked everything and even replaced a part in the humidifier at no additional cost. He also moved a pipe so that it was easier to insert the filter. He explained how electric furnace and humidifier work and advised about the pros and cons of replacing such an old unit. Very thorough, professional and polite. Cleaned up after himself. Perfect!

Hauser Heating & Air Conditioning
5.0
Excellent experience. Very easy going salesperson who seemed more interested in being honest than in convincing us to do business with them. Unit has been working fine after 9 months. 6 months after installation I called them back because the ground under the outside unit had settled and it was no longer level. They promptly corrected the situation. 9 months after installationr, the humidifier wasn't working and they were again very prompt in responding.Once again, their service team was honest in pointing out that the original installers had failed to install the humidifier properly - even though they could have easily corrected the situation for which I called and I would have never known it wasn't installed properly - they went to the extra effort and reinstalled the humidifier. Every person that I have worked with from this company has been very professional and pleasant - they really seem to understand customer service. I have been very happy with this company and would highly recommend them.

DALE SCHIBI CAME OUT PROMPTLY AND GAVE US BOTH AN ESTIMATE AND A RECOMMENDATION ON WHICH FURNACE WOULD BE THE BEST CHOICE FOR OUR HOUSE. BECAUSE OF A DEATH IN OUR FAMILY, WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING DONE FOR SIX WEEKS. DURING THAT TIME WE HAD OTHER ESTIMATES DONE THAT BROUGHT UP OTHER QUESTIONS. DALE CONTINUED TO PATIENTLY ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS. HE KNEW OF MY FATHER'S IMPENDING DEATH AND HELD THE ESTIMATE BEYOND THE ORIGINAL 30 DAYS. WHEN WE FINALLY HAD THE WORK DONE, THE INSTALLERS FROM SCHIBI WERE PROFESSIONAL AND COURTEOUS. THEY CONSULTED ME ABOUT WHERE AND HOW TO PLACE THE FURNACE AND VENT PIPE SO AS TO CREATE THE BEST LOOK AND MINIMAL DISRUPTION OF OTHER HOUSE FUNCTIONS. THEY CLEANED UP EVERYTHING AFTERWARD AND TOOK A LOT OF TIME SHOWING ME HOW TO USE THE MANY FEATURES OF THE FURNACE AND HUMIDIFIER. IT WAS APPARENT THAT DALE SCHIBI WAS EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT HIS PRODUCTS. IN ADDITION THE INSTALLERS WERE CRAFTSMEN WHO TOOK OBVIOUS PRIDE IN THEIR WORK. I WOULD DEFINITELY

Clark Heating & Cooling Inc
5.0
They were very timely, friendly and most importantly professional in their work. Our builder had installed the furnace prior to putting up the drywall so it was very difficult to access all the bolts that were holding the furnace in the wall. Unfortunately, the installer accidentally cut a water line while trying to remove the old furnace. He and his assistants however did turn off the water supply, drive to the nearest Lowes and get the appropriate materials and replaced our water line with new PVC and brass fittings. They cleaned up the floor of any and all traces of water. I appreciate all the hard work they did to make this job turn out well. We are very happy with our new furnace and heat pump (especially since spring only lasted a couple of days and we are expecting cold and snow again) and also very happy to have new water lines with new shut-off valves. I would definitely recommend Clark to anyone who needs HVAC work done.

DECEPTIVE. I CALLED THEM TO PROVIDE A QUOTE ON A NEW AIR CLEANER SINCE WE WERE GETTING A LOT OF DUST IN THE HOUSE. THE SALESMAN CAME OUT TO THE HOUSE AND ENDED UP LOOKING AT THE FURNACE. HE TOLD ME THAT THE HEAT EXCHANGER WAS CRACKED AND I NEEDED A NEW FURNACE RIGHT AWAY. I CHECKED WITH ANOTHER REPUTABLE CONTRACTOR AND WAS TOLD THAT THE HEAT EXCHANGER WAS NOT CRACKED AND A NEW FURNACE IS NOT NEEDED. I DO NOT APPRECIATE WILLIS' DECEPTIVE SALES PRACTICE.

Do not listen to anyone who "tests" your furnace heat exchanger with only a camera. Demand a carbon monoxide sniff test. Do not trust Apollo.

They answered and the answers made sense. I was impressed with the workmanship that they put into the job. I would definitely use them again and stay with them to further my education in HVAC.

Recent Review: Provided costs for replacing just the exchanger versus the entire furnace. Since replacing the exchanger was almost half the cost of a new furnace and my current furnace was over 10 years old, I opted for the new furnace. Schneller replaced the furnace on 11/07/2013 at a cost of $3285.

Recent Review: At the annual winter inspection, the old unit was red-tagged for cracks in the heat exchanger and possible carbon monoxide fumes. Representative Dan Shepherd visited the home on the same day, recommended a replacement and scheduled the install to meet my schedule. Perry and Rayshawn, service technicians were polite, professional and did a marvelous job of demolition and retorfit of a 155,000 BTU furnace. The new replacement equipment was less than the repair estimate of the 15 year old unit.

HE HAD THE OLD EXCHANGER OUT IN ABOUT 45 MINS, SHOWED ME THE PROBLEM AREAS, AND HAD NEW EXCHANGER INSTALLED AND FURNACE RUNNING IN ABOUT 2 HOURS OVERALL. VERY PROFESSIONAL, AND THE FINAL COST CAME IN APPROX. $100 UNDER WHAT RICK ESTIMATED, WHICH BEAT THE QUOTE FOR THE SAME JOB BY ANOTHER CONTRACTOR BY APPROX. $400! I WON'T SHOP ANYWHERE ELSE FOR HVAC WORK.
