Reviews in Columbus to Install Central AC

Custom Air Conditioning & Heating
5.0
I wanted to share my great experience with Custom Air. My 13 year old AC was dying a slow death this summer, so I decided to replace it... and MAN am I glad I did! I'm pretty meticulous when it comes to these kinds of things. I got several quotes, asked a lot of questions, did a ton of research, and throughout the entire process Custom Air stayed head and shoulders above the pack. Dave Wuelfing came out, gave me the best price up front (and ended up being the best quote too), put up with all of my questions, never pressured me, was very responsive, and even put up with me changing my mind at the last minute on which model I wanted. Robert Kendrick and Jake Riley were prompt, professional, and did a great, TIDY install (that's key - some places are sloppy!). Custom Air handled all of the city inspection paperwork, and even helped me with my Energy Savings rebate paperwork. It actually ended up being an enjoyable experience for something I don't generally enjoy (having to replace stuff around the house). I can't recommend these guys enough!

We had their Technician - Matt Losco - out to review and recommend a replacement central air conditioning unit. He was exceptionally professional, cordial, informative and non-condescending. Bottom line - he did a great job explaining what was needed, why and options available. When he did not know an answer, he called and got it immediately from his office. Their office even suggested an alternate for us. We have had several other firms' techs and sales people here to discuss our AC needs, but he was by far the best. If I could give him a better rating I would but the 5 Stars are my only option. We sincerely appreciate this man and his company. "LT"

Very pleased with this company! The owner's son, Adam, came out in very short notice to give us a free estimate and was very personable and down to earth. He also gave us an estimate for a new furnace and air conditioner unit that was almost half off what Columbus Worthington Air and Sears offered. Same products, about half the price. When the team came to install the units, they weren't able to get to our home due to road construction, and they were very flexible with us and offered to come the next day instead. They did a great job with installation and I would definitely recommend this company!

I CALLED MIKE FOR A SECOND OPINION REGARDING MY NON OPERATIONAL A/C. HE MET WITH ME THE AFTERNOON I CALLED, WAS PROFESSIONAL AND FRIENDLY. HE PRESENTED INFORMATION SO THAT I COULD UNDERSTAND IT, AND WITHOUT PRESSURE TO BUY FROM HIM. I CHOSE CARE BECAUSE I FELT I WAS GETTING MORE FOR MY MONEY. THE PRICE WAS ALMOST $2000 LESS THAN ANOTHER COMPANY I HAD CONSULTED. THE EQUIPMENT WAS A FAMILIAR NAME BRAND (LENNOX). THE NEW UNIT WAS INSTALLED ON THE DAY AND TIME PROMISED. THE INSTALLATION TECHNICIAN WAS PROFESSIONAL AND EFFICIENT AND THERE WAS NO MESS LEFT BEHIND. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY TO MY FRIENDS, AND WILL HIRE THEM AGAIN FOR ANY FUTURE NEEDS.

Starner replaced a 22 yr old central air conditioning unit in my daughter's condominium. Last year she roasted - many times the temperature in her place was and gt; 85 degrees. Starner was very prompt - showing up on time - they were courteous, efficient, and clean. They took time to explain how the new thermostat operated. Overal installation time was about 3 hrs.

I have a home warranty that sent this company to repair my AC. It took them a week and two visits to diagnose the problem (bad compressor), and then technician was blaming electrical problems for compressor failure in the report sent to home warranty company, which was not correct. That incorrect diagnosis delayed my service for another 2 weeks since home warranty company had to send another company for a second opinion. Second company didn't find any electrical problems, since there was no electrical problem, and is in the process of replacing compressor. I think part of the blame is on Home warranty company, who does not do a good job on evaluating contractors, but lack of experience can cause additional pain and delays for homeowners. Customer service (except Jessica) very rude, and hanged up when called to inquire about the status. I would not hire this company again. Check BBB review as well.

Very well. The owner gave me an estimate and advice that I should not replace my existing furnace. Other companies had recommended I replace the furnace. The owner was very responsive when I raised questions after receiving my original estimate. His crew did the work well and were careful to put down tarps to protect my floor

American Air
4.0
Most of American Air's staff were extremely professional and very pleasant to work with. Salesperson Jeff Ball especially deserves praise for being informative and helping us find ways to keep costs down. We received estimates from three different companies, and Jeff was the only one to draw our attention to several potential code violations that would need to be addressed by our installer, which was reassuring. However, the installer himself left a piece of metal inside the air conditioner, causing the system to make a noise like a shoe left in the dryer. To their credit American Air had this fixed the very next day, even sending out someone after hours to make sure it was taken care of as soon as possible. The other issue is that the installer moved the condenser from its previous spot. (This was apparently done to avoid a potential code violation involving access to the electric box.) However, he never asked us where we wanted the condenser moved to, and he located it right outside a dining area window. Although the air conditioner is much nicer and a reasonable size compared to the one we replaced, it's not what I want to see when eating pancakes. The rotating blades also catch the sunlight and will occasionally blind family members walking through the kitchen. We're having American Air come out and move the condenser, but it's very frustrating, because it's an additional expense. (Thus, the B-grade on price. Otherwise, it would have been an A.) Plus, I'm sure we'll have yet another patch of grass to replace once this is all done. It's very nice to have the house finally cooled down, and--in the end--a lack of attention to detail by the installer is all that kept this from being an A+ review.

Airtron Heating & Air Conditioning
1.0
Had service guy come out to look at the central A/C because it stopped cooling. I wanted him to check it for leaks but he talked me out of it and charged the unit. It worked fine for a few months then it stopped working. I had them come out again to do the service agreement spruce up on the heater for the winter and mentioned that the air wasn't working. Before the service guy looked at it he stated that it was the coil that was bad because the unit was older and I would probably need to replace it. I wasn't looking to replace the unit. I wanted it repaired. I wanted the unit checked for leaks the first time around and felt like I was getting the run around from the repairman. I looked outside and noticed that some wires on the air conditioner were disconnected. I had the service guy put them back together and what do you know, the thing started working again. I asked for the unit to be charged again. The service guy talked me out of it. Now the unit doesn't work again. My rating is F.

They were punctual, checked the freon level, and even cleaned out an old rodent's nest that had taken up residence in the air conditioner housing. My HVAC Systemhad never been checked since the house was built in 2002 so it was good having the piece of mind knowing that everything was operating properly and efficiently.

Recent Review: I had Bradley electric come out with their big deal of $99 for 2 hours of service. It turned out they sent 2 guys for 1 hour for 2 hours of total service, which was fine. I had hoped to have some light switches moved around due to the way the doors opened. The guys came out, spent a lot of time surveying the electrical in the house and determined that it wasn't really possible due to the way the house was set up and with some of the walls being plaster. They spent nearly an hour trying to figure out if it was possible, and then suggested alternatives to me.Since they didn't actually do anything, they didn't charge me, and I had 2 guys come by later to install the suggested fix (some remote switches) along with replacing some old floorboard heaters. The two guys worked hard the entire time they were at my house, and they worked separately on different projects. I felt they maximized their time and did great work. Would definitely use them again.

Recent Review: Outstanding experience. Id originally called Comfortworks to take a look at my A/C unit, because it was not cooling properly. After examining the unit, Andy told me I needed a new A/C unit, and then offered to try to do it the same day, which he did (and bent over backwards to do so!). Andy was efficient, friendly, and very knowledgeable, and was very considerate of me and my home. He did not need to try to install my a/c unit in the same day, but did--and Im very grateful. Excellent company!

Recent Review: The work was performed professionally, on-time as scheduled. The installers readily explained each step so there were no surprises, and asked for our preference when there were installation options. The installers cleaned up the work area nicely when finished. Overall, we are very happy with both the expert workmanship and the new furnace-A/C.

Recent Review: Westin was very prompt in responding to our initial call. They thoroughly explained what the problem was and offered various options. I had already received one other estimate so I had a comparison to compare with. Bottom line was I received upgraded equipment at a lower cost that the first service company. They were able to start the job quickly and completed the installation in a timely and professional manner. They completely explained the operation instructions and proper maintenance procedures. The equipment works better than expected and we are very happy with it. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services.

Recent Review: Everyone at Gahanna Heating and Cooling is very professional. They diagnosed the problems associated with a 25-year old furnace and nearly 20-year old air conditioner that was no longer working. They then installed a new furnace and air conditioner at a reasonable price. Everything went smoothly, and we are very happy with the results.

Recent Review: Fred came out same day as promised even though it was very late in the day and quickly diagnosed a loose screw in thermostat that I installed was causing my air conditioner and fan not to work. He took the time to ensure everything else was ok. He was swamped with air conditioner service calls that day because it was unsesonabbly hot. All I can say is how grateful I am to have knowledgable trustworthy service at reasonable fees. Definitely call if you need heating or cooling service. Definitely worth the wait, although he usualy gets to you same day if at all possible.

Recent Review: My air wasn't working... so I called the HVAC company. Within 24 hours they were at my house twice... and all that happened was I paid them to tell me they couldn't fix my problem. I found Efficient Electric Corp. here on Angie's List. Their reports were positive and their prices seemed reasonable. My experience was wonderful from start to finish. Everyone I spoke to on the phone was polite and professional. The service technician was pleasant, efficient, and knowledgeable. Within one hour my air was up and running... and the cost for that was half of the cost for the HVAC company to tell me they couldn't do it. I will definitely use Efficient Electric again!!

What do customers in Columbus say about Central AC Installation?

I could not be happier with their service. My 18 year old air conditioner died over Friday night on a weekend that was supposed to get up in the mid-90s. I called for service in the am on Saturday. I figured with the heat wave, I'd be lucky to have air conditioning by Thursday. By shortly after 11 am on Sunday, they had the new air conditioner in. Everyone I dealt with was friendly, helpful, and efficient. I'm not sure how they compare price-wise. I paid $4,939 for a SEER 14 Energy Star rated unit for a 1300 sq ft 2 story house with very old, energy inefficient windows. I forget whether it was a Carrier or a Trane unit, but it was one of those reputable brands. The cost is with a 10% discount for being a repeat customer. Considering that I bought the previous unit from them, and it outlasted the expected 12-15 year lifespan by quite a bit, I know the quality is good. I have also had them install 2 furnaces over the past 18 years and have a service membership with them. Every time I have dealt with them, the service has been excellent
