Reviews in Los Angeles to Repair Cracked Heat Exchangers

Timo's Air Conditioning and Heating Inc
5.0
Timo's did a fantastic job. They were very generous with their time in discussing and trouble shooting the problem with me. We developed a systematic action plan for getting my AC working again at the lowest possible cost. The technicians were very pleasant to work with, very professional and hard working. They never stopped from the time they arrived. They replaced both service lines and the quality of their work was excellent. My AC works great! Better than before! Thanks Timo. I'll definitely call you again to service my AC/heating unit.

Diagnosed cracked welds in old heat exchangers quickly. These cannot be repaired. Installed new furnace in three hours and hauled away old unit. Fine work. Oh! Best price around (depends on area to be heated)

Curtis Watanabe Plumbing
3.0
When I found a leak in one of my tankless hot water heaters, I called Curtis because he works on Noritz products. He called back quickly and came over the same day to look at the problem. He ordered a new heat exchanger under warranty. After four days, the heat exchanger arrived and he sent someone over with it to install it. The installer wanted payment on the spot without presenting an invoice or warranty information. Curtis called me and pressed for payment. I told him that I would pay on an invoice that included manufacturer warranty information. A few days later I received an invoice. In the meantime, I found that the heaters were not working properly: the control panel was displaying a code for a communication error and the heaters would sometimes shut off during a shower. I called Curtis about this and he replied with a voice mail that told me what I already knew about the error and that I would have to call the manufacturer regarding the warranty. I called back asking him to fix the problem with the heaters but he did not reply. I waited a day, then diagnosed the problem, finding that a cable inside the repaired heater had not been reconnected. I also called Noritz to learn their warranty policy on the new heat exchanger. I paid the invoice even though the job had not been finished and I had to finish it.

He turned off the gas to one of the heaters and cut one of the control lines so that I finally had to have someone come out and find out why my downstairs heater was not working. I also found out later that an energy credit could have been obtained from NV Energy if a specified company was used.

I think their Overall rate should be between B and C. The installation work from All Valley's employees was quick, good and very professional. But the unit they installed was not exact what I wanted, I told them to get me a heat exchanger with 20-year warranty. But after they installed the unit, they found out that the installed unit only has a 10-year warranty for the heat exchanger. The cooling unit was only 13.5 seer, which is not the best energy efficient unit.

Al and his team were fantastic! They were highly professional, always on time and completed the job on schedule. Al went an extra mile to fix the incorrect wiring of the existing system to bring it up to code (no extra charge), as well as adding a few brand new registers, as a courtesy at no additional cost either. He spent extra time with the tenants to walk through all installations, test both heating and cooling capacity, while educating us on an optimal use of the complex HVAC system in the house. Having been in the industry for a long time, Al is very knowledgeable in many related areas of Building and Safety - e.g. he noticed a few issues with appliances and vents that are not up to code and suggested inexpensive ways to fix those using general contractor. Overall, it was a very rewarding and educational experience and we are planning to hire this company for our future projects.

The owner responded quickly, gave us a bid, installed the equipment the day after we accepted it. Both units have lifetime warranties on compressor and heat exchanger. Labor for one year. Ten years on parts and coils. We have annual and emergency service.

Their prices were very competitive, the work was good, and I am now enjoying carbon-monoxide free heat in my home. I got a 10 year warranty on parts, 1 year on the labor, and lifetime on the heating exchanger. They also installed a main gas shut off, and hauled away the old heater.

Stanley Plumbing and Tankless Water Heaters
5.0
In a word, excellent. Our Noritz tankless water heater stopped heating, plus we had gone 9 years without a descaling, so we had 2 tasks. I selected Stanley Plumbing because their website prominently indicated they do tankless water heaters, and are also specifically mentioned they are a Noritz installer. Don Stanley came out promptly. He cautioned me that if an old water heater that has never been descaled, and you have hard water (we do), sometimes descaling can essentially unplug an existing a leak. In other words, sometimes a tiny hole is actually plugged by the scale. I agreed and he went to work. First he fixed the "not heating" problem ? the ignitor was corroded, so he replaced it. Then, he descaled the water heater, and it did spring a small leak. Fortunately, he noticed our water heater was still under the Noritz factory warranty. He called Noriz, and they rushed out the parts the next day. (We are fairly close to the warehouse.) The parts were free under warranty, though labor was not, but his rate was reasonable. Don returned to replace the leaking heat exchanger. When he removed the old one, it was obvious there had been a slow leak for a long time ? there was a stream of corrosion running inside, right down on to the ignitor, which is why the old igniter failed in the first place. Both Stanley Plumbing and Noritz have my full endorsement. Don Stanley for his good service and reasonable prices, and Noritz for standing behind their very good product. When someday my water heater finally dies, many years from now, I expect to call Stanley Plumbing and asking them to install a new Nortiz.

Alicia Air Conditioning & Heating Inc
5.0
I called Alicia Air for a "second opinion" on my furnace. Another company had come out and had told me I needed a new furnace due to a crack in the heat exchanger.. I resisted his sales pitch and told him I'd think it over I discussed the issue with a friend who suggested I have Alicia Air.come out and look at the furnace. This friend had actually worked for Alicia Air when he was in college, and he spoke very highly of the company and their work. Alica Air came out a few days later. Their tech said that the "crack" I had been shown was actually a seam in the exchanger, and, after inspecting the entire system, he said there was nothing at all wrong. Needless to say, Alicia Air became my provider for regular semi-annual maintenance on my furnace and air conditioner. They are pleasant, prompt, reliable and knowledgeable. They are family-owned and some of the family members work in their office. Here's an example of how nice they are to deal with: In May 2013 I called Alicia Air to come and give my A/C an inspection because I was going to be selling my home and I wanted to make sure the A/C was running fine. They suggested that I wait until the house is in escrow, because an inspection would be performed as part of the selling process, so I would save the amount of the service call. I very much appreciated that advice, and so Alicia didn't get to do the job. Alicia Air is great, and I have recommended Alicia Air to others. If I hadn't moved out of the area I would still be using them.

I'm now a believer in Angie's List! Great company. Honest and professional. Went for a second opinion with LB heating after getting a bad diagnosis from ARS Corona. They immediately said that I had a bad heat exchanger and needed a new furnace. Upon further review, LB Heating said the furnace is fine and "if" I needed a new exchanger it would have been covered under warranty. $60 well spent.

2 service technicians arrived to do the inspection and tune up. They reported that the furnace had a cracked heat exchanger and said the furnace had be replaced. They also reported that all the ducting had to be replaced due to asbestos insulation used to insulate the ducting. I asked for a quote for all their recommendations. The 2 technicians were very courteous and polite, but I thought the recommendations for the work required was excessive.

I'll let you decide. The repairman was very congenial and accommodating. He went on the roof and said the transformer needed to be replaced...which he replaced. He also said he put in a resettable fuse at the transformer...free of charge...which sounded strange to me. Anyway, the unit turned on, however the following day the same problem still existed...it simply wouldn't turn on. He came again and said this time it was the thermostat...and he said it was lucky that he put that fuse in at the transformer cause it prevented the new transformer from burning out when the thermostat failed. Each repair cost roughly $200-$300. The unit has been working fine since then. It is extraordinarily rare that there are two different causes that result in the exact same problem. It can happen, but it is rare. You decide. Frankly, I think the problem was the thermostat and I paid for a transformer that didn't need to be changed. Just a side note. I had Season Control Heating and Air look at the unit prior to Around the Clock. Season Control said that the heat exchanger was cracked and I would need to replace the entire unit for about $5,000-$7,000 depending on which unit I chose. Around the clock said that the heat exchanger was fine and that I only needed to change the transformer...then the thermostat.

Cool Air Technologies Inc
5.0
Having had a service visit from one HVAC specialist who advised that I needed to replace the heat exchange within my furnace at a cost of $1600 (or alternatively replace the whole unit for $2500) I called Cool Air for a second opinion. Bill turned up for his initial service visit promptly and set to work diagnosing the problem. He found that there was absolutely nothing wrong with the heat exchange and the reason why the furnace wasn't working was because no power was going to the fan. He isolated the problem to the electrical board and suggested a replacement. Bill took the time to explain and fully demonstrate exactly how he knew it was the board, which gave me full confidence in him. A couple of days later Bill came back with the new board and it took about an hour for him to install it and have the heating working again. He also spent another hour helping to adjust the dampers in my heating/air ducts to get better heat distribution. Overall, I was extremely impressed with Bill and his level of service and professionalism. His superb reputation is obviously thoroughly deserved and I would recommend him to anyone.

After the work was done, I was told that the heat exchanger was no longer safe. I was then recommended to replace the whole unit. This was what I was willing to do the first time around. Probably honest mistake by the young man who came out to my house. But not I an not very confident.

Recent Review: I want to start off saying I am satisfied with the work Bob's Heating & Air Conditioning did on our furnace and would hire them again. The prominent quality they have is professionalism and accountability for their repair work. Unfortunately, when replacing our secondary heat exchanger, several issues arose that required a call to Bob's to have a repairman come and resolve the problems. However, every time we called, Bob's was quick to respond, send over another technician, and in the end Bob's fixed our furnace, and we had plenty of heat during the Snowmageddon. All of the craftsmen were polite, professional, and had to endure climbing up in our attic to the location of our furnace to perform all the work. Initially, the service request was to perform maintenance on our furnace, and during the inspection, the technician discovered the problem with our secondary heat exchanger and repair work would be completed under a warranty bulletin. In summation, I am delighted with Bob's Heating & Air Conditioning.

Recent Review: My 26 year old central air system went out on a Thursday night. I called Liberty Friday morning and the sales manager for Liberty came to the home the same afternoon. After discussing details, options and answering all of my questions, I accepted their contract to replace my 5 ton ac and furnace. The price was fair and all of the work was completed the very next Tuesday. Part of the installation involved enlarging the air return space under the furnace closet. This improvement, along with the higher efficiency AC unit should keep me smiling this summer. They also provided a programmable thermostat and set it up so the house will always be at my preferred temperature. I won't even have to switch between cooling and heating when the seasons change. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and will definitely call Liberty for any plumbing problems I might have in the future.

Recent Review: Luis is a very honest and professional business man. He came out on time, fixed the drain pipe in the crawl space, which wasn't part of the deal. He checked my AC units and said they were functioning properly and did not need attention until summer of 2014 instead of charging me extra for something that did not need repair. Thanks Luis! I will definately use him when its time! Sherrie
