Reviews in Pittsburgh to Repair Swamp Cooler

Arendosh Heating and Cooling
1.0
THERE WERE NO OBSTRUCTIONS; NO CEILING TILE IN THE BASEMENT, NO FURNITURE TO MOVE, NO CARPETING TO CUT. APPOINTMENT WAS FOR 1 PM. THEY DIDN'T SHOW UNTIL 3:30 and DIDN'T BRING THE RIGHT TOOLS. THEY CAME BACK ON MONDAY and THOUGH THE TECH SAID HE WOULD COME LATE AFTERNOON, THEY CAME AT 11 AM. ESSENTIALLY, I PAID $355 AND TOOK 1-1/2 VACATION DAYS FOR TWO 20-SOMETHINGS TO DO LESS THAN 2 HOURS OF WORK. WHEN I QUESTIONED THE COST, THEY SAID IT WAS BECAUSE THE METAL WAS SO EXPENSIVE (THOUGH THEY TOOK MORE THAN THEY INSTALLED) and THEY COULDN'T (OR WOULDN'T) GIVE ME A COST FOR THE METAL. I ASKED FOR A CO2 TEST and THEY WANTED A $55 DIAGNOSTIC CHARGE IN ADDITION TO THE $25 TEST FEE. I THOUGHT THIS JOB WAS TOO SMALL TO GET QUOTES FOR and SINCE THIS WAS THE COMPANY THAT INSTALLED THE FURNACE FOR THE PREVIOUS OWNERS. I THOUGHT THEY WOULD DO OK BUT, OF ALL THE CONTRACTORS I'VE HAD IN MY HOME FOR THIS REMODEL, ARENDOSH WAS THE ONLY UNRELIABLE and DISHONEST SERVICE. I CERTAINLY WOULD NOT ALLOW THEM IN MY HOME AG

Kim arrived promptly and started on the kitchen fan and after it was all put together and installed, he determined that the motor was defective, so the old light was reinstalled until a replacement could be put up, which was done about a week later. The bedroom installation was done with no incident. I recently contacted Kim by phone regarding a light bulb question and his response solved the problem. I would definitely recommend Kim for any electrical work.

L Germek Heating & Cooling
5.0
We have been using Germek for all of our family HVAC needs for the past five years. They have never failed to provide prompt, professional service at a fair price. My house has hot water heat thus no heating vents. We decided to have whole-house installed and received 5 bids. Germek was the least expensive and knowing the kind of service they provide we chose them. We agreed on a start date and they honored it. My wife and I both work so we allowed them in the house alone. They performed the job exactly as agreed with minimal disruption and mess. We are more than pleased with the how they went about the work and the final results. You can't go wrong with this company.

My experience with Clinton was superb from start to finish. He responded promptly to my calls/emails, provided a detailed estimate and was flexible on scheduling the work. His attention to quality and detail shine through everything he does. He answered all my questions honestly and clearly. His work was meticulous; he not only plastered over the holes, but he matched the texturing in the kitchen ceiling plaster as well. The ceiling actually looks better that it did before the holes were created. In addition, he cleaned up so thoroughly after he completed the work that I think the kitchen may have been cleaner when he left than before he started. Not a speck of dirt remained. I will use Clinton for all my future contracting needs and recommend him to my friends and neighbors. An all-round perfect experience!

Beam Heating & Air Conditioning
5.0
My furnace had been getting louder over the course of a month. Knowing that a few of my friends had work done with this company and highly recommended them, I called Beam Heating and A/C on 3/4/11 and spoke ,with whomever answers the phone to inquire about getting an estimate to have the furnace as well as the air conditioner and water heater replaced since they were considerably old. The woman told me the request would be delivered to the owner. Within 15 minutes, the owner called back and said he could come out the next morning to provide me an estimate. He arrived promptly the next morning (3/5/11), was very professional and knowledgeable, and provided to me any options I may want to consider. Along with the furnace I opted for an air cleaner, a humidifier, and a programmable thermostat. I was happy with the estimate and at that time said I would like him to perform the work. The work was scheduled for the morning of 3/14/11. The two men that performed the work arrived promptly, were very nice as well as professional, and did a very good job, including cleaning up afterwards. And, they explained how to work the thermostat, humidifier, etc. I would definitely recommend this company. It was a pleasant experience.

Spec Electric Company, LLC
5.0
The services provided went excellent from the initial phone call having talked with the service coordinator Melissa to the actual service completion by the Electrician Mike . I was told of what to expect and to troubleshoot the outside GFI on a couple of my outlets initially over the phone; it did enable them to work again right away. Also, I explained my fan was smoking in which I was instructed it would be better to purchase a replacement one since the motor was likely finished as compared to the more costly option of possibly fixing it; therefore, I went to Lowes and bought a reasonably priced one. The electrician Mike showed up as scheduled. I told him about the four problems at hand that needed dealt with. First he was able to replace the faulty smoking fan with the new one I had bought. He did good work concerning the fan as it looked good and functioned properly. Secondly, I had two outlets that were not working in separate locations. Mike and I walked down to my basement and looked inside the breaker box. He felt that the outlet upstairs in my bedroom should still be able to work due to it looked like new wiring inside it. Just as he said, it actually was just a simple flip of the breaker switch for that area to enable the outlet to work again. Likewise, he went ahead and was able to flip the kitchen breaker switch back on for me which got my kitchen light switch and outlet working again . He showed me where both breaker switches were located for future reference. I appreciated his honesty as some other company could have easily taken advantage of me due to my lack of knowledge. Lastly, my kitchen fan needed a more simple fix. The kitchen fan light on/off pull chain broke off from the base of the top in the fan. Mike was able to replace the top portion of the chain that lead into the fan with a new one assuring that this would not likely happen again. Overall, I was extremely pleased with the service performed yet again, as this was my second experience with Spec Electric. I was left with a good and satisfied feeling after the service was completed. The fulfillment feeling of professionalism and friendly service at a reasonable price. I would certainly hire them back again with much appreciation.

McVehil Plumbing & Heating
5.0
While having flooring installed throughout our house, despite our best efforts to sequester our two cats, one escaped down the heat vent in an upstairs bedroom. We could not see or hear her, but called the vet, the fire dept., and McVehil’s after hours, yesterday. I left a message and was immediately called back by Kelly, who said she would call in the morning to see if I needed someone. She did very early and then within maybe an hour, Mark and his coworker arrived. They cut an opening in the duct where the cat had gotten to and was trapped, and the talked us through how to get her out. Dirty, grimy, hungry, but alive and well, our 15-year-old calico was out. Two baths later, and some food, she is as good as new. Thank you Mark and McVehil! I would also like to add that having lived in Washington, PA for almost 29 years in the same house, Mark and others have been out many times for a dead water heater (which was fixed and lasted another 10 years), a dead AC unit, and various, plumbing woes. We have bought new units from McVehil, too, and both the installation and quality have been great. Moreover, they often do the little things as a courtesy or for a very reasonable charge. If you are in need of plumbing or HVAC work, or have an emergency (even a cat in the HVAC system), call McVehil! They are a community resource that we are lucky to have! Thank you!

It went very well overall. It took longer than anticipated but that was because we ran into a few problems that had to be addressed and we decided to add a few things as the room remodeling was progressing. When a problem did arise Dave gave us our options and did what was asked.

The job went smoothly and it was done on time. We were impressed with the crew's expertise and are very satisfied with the system they installed. They cleaned up thoroughly after completing the job. The installers provided instructions on how to operate the controls and how to install and clean the filters and they included a followup two week check to make sure everything is working well.

Recent Review: During our first winter in our recently purchased home, we found that one bedroom seemed much colder than the rest of the house. We were anticipating needing new duct work or major changes to the heating system, but John instead adjusted the flow of air coming out of the furnace and then closed off several heating vents throughout the house to better direct the heat toward the one bedroom that had been colder. This bedroom is no longer appreciably colder than the rest of the house.
