There was a crack in the heating exchanger and they fixed it, later after a week it shut down due to excessive carbon. I called then again than they said I have to buy a new heat exchanger.

They were beyond punctual - actually 15 minutes early! Very professional, quoted us for three options (new furnace, new heat exchanger plus clean and inspect, or just replace heat exchanger). Did all the work in a timely manner, and furnace appears to be working fine again now!

Vredevoogd did the annual checkup and found a crack on the heat exchanger. They turned the furnace off until the heat exchanger is replaced. Since, they do not sell my unit, I needed to contact another company. Spent $3,112 for a new heat exchanger. They were unable to find any cracks on the exchanger! Vredevoogd would not cover any of my costs.

During an annual furnace inspection, I was told by a tech that my heat exchanger was cracked and I needed a new furnace. My friend recommended I obtain a second opinion from Roger w/ Bouwkamp Heating. I am very detail oriented and asked Roger lots of questions. Roger took the time to carefully answer them. He proceeded to ask me some questions and as he prudentally listened to my answers, he provided an alternative. He informed me that my heat exchanger was still under warranty. This suprised me given the age of my furance. He proposed to replace it and charge me labor only. Given the good condition of my furance, he recommended repairing it when he could have made more money by selling me a new one. I strongly recommend Roger because he truly made me feel like my needs were most important, even thought it cost him money in the short-term.

Vredevoogd Heating & Cooling Inc
1.0
Buyer beware!! Vredevoogd is unethical. . Vredevoogd "tune up" special became obvious that they are just out pushing new furnaces. The technician was polite and professional but pointed out a hairline fracture in my heat exchanger and said that he will need to shut off my furnace quoting some AGA BS. He said I would need to replace the heat exchanger or get a new furnace before turning it back on and how ironic, they don't make my heat exchanger anymore. Well, this Vredevoogd technician did not realize he was dealing with a degree'd mechanical engineer and probably know how the furnace works as well as he did (maybe more). A furnace heat exchanger is not an air tight chamber to begin with so a hair line fracture should not cause any issue with it's function. Google it, a cracked heat exchanger it is a myth/scam. It only becomes an issue if it is affecting the burners and there is insufficient combustion which is caused by a large cracks or holes in the heat exchanger. The Vredevoogd technician tried to scare me with carbon monoxide poisoning, however I have carbon monoxide detectors in the house that DO NOT indicate any issue. . So if you want to get scared into buying a new furnace with words like "Poisoning" and turning off the gas to your current furnace (when it's snowing outside), then by all means hire Vredevoogd. They will be glad to to give your furnace a tune up (shut off) and try to sell you a new furnace. They must be trying to pay for those TV commercials. Always question someone who says you "need" a new furnace while they are selling you a new furnace. . UPDATE: The below response is not their own words, I have done my research. http://www.shavitz.com/blog/the-dangers-associated-with-a-cracked-heat-exchanger/ Another company trying to sell furnaces.

A/C repair was prompt and effective. I had my doubts about the cracked heat exchanger since I had not specifically asked for that to be inspected & it resulted in a potential sale for their company. But when the furnace was replaced by another company, they verified that Vredevoogd's diagnosis was correct.

We got three more estimates and went with a competitor to replace our existing Carrier Furnace since they were over $500 less and offered the same rebates.

Redmon Heating & Cooling
5.0
The experience with them was fine. The guys came down and put it in. They were fine. They quoted me a price and then when they got here, they didn't have the front panel for that thing and that wasn't under warranty so that I didn't have to pay more, but that was fine. Except that small issue, everything else was fine.

Redmon Heating & Cooling
5.0
We were buying our first home and found out that the 30 year furnace had a few issues? namely leaking carbon monoxide into the home. Being first time home buyers we didn?t know where to go, let alone what to buy. After quite some time debating and researching HVAC brands, we decided to go with Redmon. Thanks to Angie?s List making that decision was even easier after reading all the reviews. First off Redmon mainly handles and services the Bryant line of equipment. Bryant is considered mid-range between Payne (cheap) and Carrier (expensive). In order to even sell a Bryant, you have to adhere to their strict guidelines as well as be factory trained. I worked with Jim out of the Holland office and he answered all my questions and offered me several options to choose from. He was honest enough to explain the differences between newer and older equipment and what I could expect as far as life expectancy. I ended up going with a 96% Efficiency Furnace with an add-on humidifier. The crew came on time if not earlier than I expected. The whole process took about 5 hours but that was with removing the old and refitting the new to the existing coil and ductwork. They even critiqued themselves and redid a drain line they just setup to ensure it was up to their own personal standards. After the installation I asked them several questions above and beyond the typical maintenance to which they were more than happy to answer. They also took great care of keep the home clean as they were entering and existing. They even left the area in the crawlspace cleaner! Overall I would recommend Redmon to any of my friends and family in the area. Quality work, prompt and professional. I will be calling them back for my AC when I have the funds saved up!

Trevor and Alex arrived early and promptly went to work assessing my aging furnace. They cleaned the burners, checked the gas pressure and heat exchanger and ran a combustion analyzer test for Co2. They noted the damper was set to "on" which was wasting heat and reset it to "auto". I feel much more secure in the furnace safety and reliablity now that it has been inspected and cleaned. Great service and attitude. Will definitely use this company again. Thanks Trevor and Alex!

Recent Review: THE PRICE WAS HIGH, BUT THE QUALITY WAS GOOD. THE ONLY REASON WHY I WENT TO THIS COMPANY IS BECAUSE MY UNIT WAS UNDER WARRANTY AND THIS WAS THE ONLY LOCAL LENNOX COMPANY. I WOULD NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY AGAIN BECAUSE IT WAS TOO PRICEY.
