The technician Timmy arrived on time and began troubleshooting the Furnace. He tested several items and then told me that the issue is a cracked heat exchanger and that I will need to buy an entire furnace. He stated that this had been the 3rd cracked heat exchanger he had come across that month and that he could tell it was cracked by the flame profile of the burners. He also stated that with a cracked heat exchanger I likely had Carbon Monoxide in my house and shouldnt run it. After he left I took apart the furnace myself and inspected the exchanger (which he did not do) and could not find any signs of cracks. I then proceeded to get another company out to inspect it whom confirmed this and stated that exchanger cracks are very rare and that he thought the issue was the blower not producing enough throughput. Once I changed out the blower motor everything worked as it should. Timmy the technician at National Air either did not know what the issue was and guessed it to be an exchanger leak because he was too lazy to inspect it or he may get a commission for the amount of work done on units and therefore lies about the condition to make more money. He stated my house was the 3rd one so I feel bad for the other two people and who knows how many others that were suckered by this cheat. I did some research online and found a news company in a different state that did an undercover story that had 6 companies come out to inspect a furnace and 2 of those companies told the owner they had cracked heat exchangers. The one thing in item these companies had were the technicians received monetary incentive for repairs that were done on homes. I would highly recommend not using National Air to inspect your Furnace/AC as my experience with them could have cost me thousands of dollars if i listened to their technician "Timmy"

ED BLANCHER AIR CONDITIONING
5.0
We had used Ed Blancher 10 or so years ago to replace the heat exchanger in our attic, but that was before Katrina. Now we are renting. I called and explained to Cathy on the phone that the air was still blowing, but it was not cool. She was able to finagle me in for same day service. Around 2:15, I was getting nervous, called and she said when the tech was done on his current job, he would be right over and sure enough, 15 min later, she called to say he was on his way. Scott came in, checked out what the house was like, and immediately got to work: looked at fuses first, and was able to trace it back to the dual motor capacitor (and also cleaned out a wasp nest, too!). He was very professional and personable, too. He fixed the problem, and the second floor went from 90 to 70 by morning! We are so happy.

It worked fine for a day then the heater would not come on. This time the owner came out immediately and checked system. Found bad inducer motor pressure safety switch. Replaced and checked operation. Switch is working properly at this time. This time we were charged for the pressure switch $302. 35. Warranty is 1 year for parts and labor. Because of the worker's and then the owner's promptness each call, we were without heat only about 1 1/2 hours. I liked their honesty and was satisfied with their work, so I decided to buy their 1 year Silver Advantage Plan, which entitles to 1 free check-up a year, and a discount if any new parts are required. I definitely recommend Aire Service.
