Reviews in Modesto to Repair Cracked Heat Exchangers

Airway Heating & Air Conditioning
5.0
Our heater wasn't producing heat when we tested it out. I had called another company out that had been doing some maintenance on our system prior. When the other company arrived to do a service, they found that a safety switch wasn't working and it needed replacing at $300+. We scheduled them to return the following week to replace the part. Within 5 minutes of that service call we were informed that we had a cracked heat exchange and that it would cost us $4200+ to repair and double to replace. The tech stopped and didn't install the part needed and was going to have the office schedule someone to come out and quote for the system. I subscribed to Angie's list to find a reputable HVAC to get some additional quotes. I called Airway HVAC and scheduled them to come and quote a new heat exchanger and get a second opinion. When they quoted a service call charge, I wanted to cancel, but Airway waived when I explained that a quote was all I needed. When the tech arrived, out of curiosity he decided to take a look and he found that my heat exchanger wasn't cracked and that the part they were supposed to have replaced was disconnected and sitting on the unit. The tech tested the parts several times and found it to be in working order. Reattached the part and ran the heater several times with no issues. It cost me $75.00 and we really appreciate the time and experience that Airway provided and will use them in the future.

Poorly. This vendor is a pure rip off artist. I had to drive 400 miles and fix it myself. I will never use them or Angie list again.. They tried to sell me a whole new unit even after I told them I was in this business for 20 years. DO NOT HIRE THEM!! They said the heat exchanger was no good causing flame roll out. All it was needed was a coil cleaning!!!

Tech was very professional and took care not to bring in dirt from outside into the house. Office personnel were also very professional and called two times to update the arrival time of the tech. Some of the best customer service I have experienced in a long time.

Honey's Air & Solar

I had Honeys Air come to check out my A/C Unit. They went up on the roof to inspect it and came down and told me my Unit was bad. They said my heat exchanger was cracked and it was leaking carbon monoxide in to the house and we could die. They quoted us a new unit for $7000. When I got some second opinions, the thing was never even opened up to look. So they'd never actually checked it and there was nothing wrong with the unit. First of all they're supposed to do a service, which didn't happen. I did call the owner who wanted to come out and inspect it again but I said no. And they did refund me the money.

church heating and Air conditioning
5.0
It was an excellent experience. A member of the staff came to my home to evaluate my failed external A/C unit. We discussed what needed to be done, explained the alternatives, and within a few days sent me a written quotation. Upon my choice of unit, and a deposit, I was able to schedule service at my convenience. Workers from Church HVAC came on time (actually slightly early), and had a new unit installed along with a heat exchanger coil within one day, up and running. This was very welcome, since it was very hot in Tracy at that time. Mark Church came over to inspect progress a couple of times. They also successfully prepped my home for the required building inspection. Mr. Church also came when all was complete to make sure I was satisfied. These guys get 4 stars: Professional, fast, friendly, punctual.....and they left the work site clean. Couldn't be better.

Beutler Air Conditioning and Plumbing
3.0
I lived in Livermore Beutler installed the original heating and air conditioning in my house, I thought Beutler was a little hokey the way that they did. Now in the current house that I am in the Beutler installed the system however they used a different manufacturer of furnace and air conditioner, they used a manufacturer that I prefer was a carrier, a carrier furnace and I am happy with what I have now. What I didn't like they charged eighty eight dollars to service the furnace they charged eighty eight dollar to service the air conditioner well when he is in the attic doing one he might as well do the other also while I had him do that then he charged me double even though he was up there already. You see my furnace is in the attic and right now today is probably 100 degree up there but my air conditioner compressor is outside and right now it's 98 degree outside and when dirt gets on those little fins that are attached to the cooling pipes that are in there it doesn't get a good heat exchange because doesn't put cool air in the room it takes the heat out and in order to take that heat out it does it through the free on tat's in the system. We had some issue with the furnace at Christmas time it wouldn't go on so we called them out and it took a while for them to come out and replace the parts and then the next year the igniter it was the thing hat heat it up hot enough to ignite the flame and that cracked it was a ceramic piece and it crack and it wouldn't work anymore.

Recent Review: Went very well. They came right on time with all the necessary equipment. They ripped out the old heater and air conditioner and hauled it away within an hour. The installation was excellent with all new coverings and plugs where needed. They left the garage cleaner than before. The city inspection found no faults and said they did an excellent job.

Recent Review: Everything was installed quickly and professionally. They threw in two nest thermostats to sweeten the deal which was very nice. There ended up being a problem where a drip pan was not properly installed which caused condensation to drip down onto the ceiling drywall in our infant's bedroom. They came out and repaired the drip pan and fixed the damaged drywall. The service included two years of free maintenance which just recently ended. I felt they were honest and very willing to back their work. I will use them again when needed.

Recent Review: We hired Beutler to perform a routine maintenance/tune-up on our heating system. During the service, the technician, Brian, detected hair-line cracks in the heat exchanger. If undetected and unrepaired, such cracks will widen and cause leaks with danger of carbon monoxide poisoning. Brian showed the cracks to me, using a mirror to show the cracks on the underside of the heat exchanger and comparing them to pictures of similar cracks in a service manual. A supervisor, Omar, came out the same day to confirm the finding. They recommended replacement of the heat exchanger or the furnace to remedy this dangerous situation. As we have a home warranty, the furnace replacement was performed by a different company chosen by the home warranty company. Of note, technicians from two different companies sent by the warranty company were unable to find the cracks in the heat exchanger until I pointed them out using a mirror I have, despite being told beforehand that the cracks were there. Brian was the only one who saw them the first time.
