I RECEIVED THOROUGH EXPLANATIONS AND DEMONSTRATIONS OF THE DEFECTS. PEOPLE WERE COURTEOUS AND PROVIDED EXTRA INFORMATION. I INQUIRED ABOUT REPLACING MY FURNACE AND THEY ADVISED ME THAT THAT WOULD NOT BE IN MY BEST INTEREST.

Good and Friendly service. Only real issue is the actual repair cost us about $225/hr... a little steep, but about what everyone else charges for the fix.

Center Point "red tagged" my furnace earlier this summer and told me the heat exchanger was cracked. They were more than happy to sell me a new one if I wanted. As an alternative, Center Point offered to replace my heat exchanger (that was still under warranty) for $750 I called Angell Air this morning and talked to Jeremy their service technician. He offered to come over and verify that it was cracked for a cleaning fee. Normally I wouldn't do something like this, but Jeremy was actually the second person to ask me if I was sure it was cracked. Jeremy cleaned my furnace for an hour and informed me it wasn't cracked at all and the cleaning he did took care of it! I can't tell you how relived I was. He saved me over $600! I know I will need a new furnace and A/C within the next 2 years and I will be purchasing from Angell Air.

River City Furnace & Fireplace

The technician immediately suspected a problem with the furnace, not the thermostat. In fact, he blamed the heat exchanger even before he looked at the furnace. The technician said that the thermostat was not working because of a problem with the furnace. He reset the rollout switch, turned up the thermostat to get the furnace firing, and looked at the flames. He told me that the problem was a cracked heat exchanger, and ''red tagged'' the furnace so that it couldn't be used until it was repaired. He said that heat exchangers in this particular furnace (Armstrong) last only 7 years and that they could perform a warranty replacement of the heat exchanger for a price of approximately $350. He did not check for carbon monoxide. I got a second opinion. Another company came by and felt that there was no evidence to support the diagnosis of a cracked heat exchanger. A loose hose was repaired, and there was no evidence of CO from the furnace.

A capacitor needed to be replaced. It costs $35. They charged 292. I feel It is price gouging. On talking to a manager, he said that insurance, inventory cost etc more than justifies their “reasonable” charges.i will never go near them. Only reason I went with them was because they installed it. At that time I could talk to the owner and he was very reasonable.

Kevin Turner from Total Comfort was our technician. He was on time, did a professional job taking care of the issue, cleaned up carefully when done, and communicated clearly about what he did. A very professional service appointment. Thanks Kevin.

Left a message, and they responded within a couple of hours. Dan came out to evaluate our furnace, and got me an estimate soon after (I think it was that evening). Their prices were very competitive compared to others I had gotten. I eventually went with a different company, but only because I had a previous relationship. Dan and staff were very professional, courteous, and willing to work with me. I'd consider them again if I need more HVAC work.

Air Mechanical Inc

We purchased our townhome this Summer, and in early October entered into a service contract with Air Mechanical [having found them on Angie's List] to do inspection and routine maintenance on our furnace and AC. Bill Eddie [I may have misspelled his last name] was the technician who came out. He did a very thorough inspection of the furnace, and found a crack in the heat exchanger unit which made the furnace unsafe to operate. We hired Air Mechanical to fix the furnace, so Bill ordered the parts and about two weeks later did the repairs. Not only did Bill do an excellent job at finding the dangerous condition and fixing it, he went to bat for us with the home owner's warranty people, which eventually resulted in them agreeing to reimburse us for at least part of the repair cost. Bill is very friendly, knows his stuff, and goes the extra mile. I am very happy with the service I received from Bill and Air Mechanical, and look forward to them helping with all my heating and AC needs in the future.

We were told we needed a new furnace by several contractors because of a cracked heat exchanger. As it turns out, our heat exchanger was still under manufacturer warranty! The owner, Mark, suggested we replace it and he saved our family a ton of money. He ordered the part and called me a couple of days later to arrange its installation. He arrived on time with a brand new heat exchanger, still packed in the box and wooden crate in which it was shipped. The job took an extensive amount of work and Mark got right down to business. He was very knowledgeable and skilled, and worked diligently to complete the repair within a few hours. We think Mark is phenomenal and would not hesitate to call All Mechanical Services again for repair work in our home. Thank you!

Aquarius Home Services
1.0
I was a customer of Freedom Heating and Air Conditioning for many years but since the acquisition by Aquarius Home Services I have to recommend any other company. I worked with Freedom for over six years having them tune up my boilers and furnaces at my home and rental properties as well as the odd repair. They did good work for a fair price. Over the last year I have been increasingly disappointed with them as their prices are higher than average and their work quality has become unacceptable. Most recently I had a cracked heat exchanger. They came to replace it and charged me $1,800. I found that to be too high and called to speak with a manager who lowered it to $1,300 which was more appropriate given the exchanger was under warranty. The heat exchanger was not installed correctly; I learned much later that they forgot a baffle plate. My furnace overheated multiple times. I called them to repair their mistake and they came out twice without figuring it out. They instead told me that I needed to replace the zone heating control system as well as my furnace. I contacted Stafford Home Service who within five minutes, and without opening the furnace, correctly diagnosed the problem. I reached back out to Aquarius and asked them to follow the instructions from Stafford to fix my furnace which they did and it worked as Stafford said it would. Given that Aquarius had come out to my home a total of four times before my furnace was fixed and that I had to pay Stafford to diagnose the original installation problem, I asked Aquarius to discuss a refund. I called and left messages and was told someone would call me back multiple times with a decision. And how did I get an actual decision? I had to place a one-star review on Google and Facebook. The same day as the one-star review I got a call from Chad at Aquarius who wanted to do whatever it took for me to take down the bad review. I agreed to take down the review if they refunded me the entire $1,300 for the heat exchanger repair that they screwed up as well as install, at no cost to me, a new blower motor that they said would need to be replaced soon. They agreed, refunded me, installed the blower motor and I took down the original review. I write this new review because today, less than a month after installing the new blower motor it makes a terrible noise when it operates. I called Aquarius hoping that they would stand by their work and come to repair it. I was told that Aquarius will no longer do business with me by a manager who was passing along a decision from Chad. The morale of the story; if you expect a company to provide competent work for a fair price do not call Aquarius Home Services.

Brooklyn Park, MN

Recent Review: We considered two companies (AirTech being the other). We really liked both. Due to us being Costco members, the rebates we received from Costco really separated Marsh and their Lennox products from the AirTech/Daikin products price-wise a difference of ~$4000. Our furnace had been shut down due to a cracked heat exchanger. Thank God it was the warm few weeks in early Dec. We were able to get a Marsh crew in here within a few days of their sales rep coming out. Loving the new furnace, and I'm sure we'll love the air conditioner come summer. Also excited to see a big cut in our energy bills. Our housing inspector did note one correction needed when inspecting the air conditioner--the outside hose to the air conditioner now requires a protective wrap to prevent weather-wear (new code in Woodbury in 2015). Marsh sent someone out within a couple of days to get it taken care of. Overall very happy with the value received from Marsh/Costco.

Recent Review: Furnace was fixed (Heat Exchanger replaced) - Great work by 2 Technicians. 5* work. However, the clean-up after was average. They used tissue to wipe the furnace residues (black, dusty stuff) put tissues in the toilet and dirtied the bathroom sink (blackish residue). I would have appreciated if they had just informed me so I would clean it up right away. I noticed it the day after. Hence the B rating overall. The quality of Technician(s) and work is very good however. Thank You.

Eden Prairie, MN

Recent Review: Edward was extremely nice and professional, and helped us through the process. We originally had no heat due to a bad exhaust motor, but upon further inspection he found that the heat exchange had 3 cracks which were dangerous to our health. Instead of just saying it, he took the unit apart to show the cracks to prove the issue. He then gave his service person recommendations on a new unit, as opposed to just the marketing fluff. We will almost certainly go through Residential Heating for our replacement furnace.

Saint Paul, MN

Recent Review: Excellent. Jack (tech) showed up promptly, was well prepared and thorough. I hired Boehm to repair and assess my son's home's furnace. A tech from another contractor had looked at the furnace the day before and pronounced the furnace as dangerous, the heat exchanger cracked and initially refused to repair the "no start" issue. I smelled a rat and hired Boehm to give a 2nd opinion re the heat exchanger and go over the 14 year old furnace. Jack conducted a thorough analysis of combustion gas content, checked the plenum for CO (it read 0.00), adjusted the burners. Cleaned the flame sensor and replaced the problematic pressure sensor. Jack indicated that despite the allegations from the 1st tech that assessed the furnace, that Trane furnaces do not have basic design defects and are extremely rarely found to have heat exchanger cracks. Boehm's work was honest, thorough and professional. In St Paul, they are the only trustworthy contractor that I know.

Recent Review: I was pleased to save almost $400 vs. another company's standard charge for this same work. The technician was willing to have me ask questions and gave me assurance that the furnace was working fine. He came on time and worked hard for over an hour, with me looking over and asking questions. He was familiar with the furnace and explained some of its idiosyncrasies to me. It was very nice to have the heat working right away the same day, as this happened just at the beginning of a two week spell of below zero temperatures.
