Reviews in Portland to Install Central AC

Milwaukie Heating & Cooling Inc

These guys were skilled, quick, and nice to work with. They had to remove my gate to get the A/C in, and they hung it back nicer than it was. The install was clean and without any leaks in the house or basement, and the A/C does a great job keeping us cool in the hot months so it was sized well for our home. My ONLY gripe. They installed a power outlet on my heater that blocks me from changing the air filter on that side. I had them come back out to address this, but ultimately it's still an issue today. A minor PITA once every 6 months.

Our portable air conditioning unit broke when weather was very hot and we were worried that we wouldn't be able to find anyone to install central air for us. Sears promised us fast installation but gave a quote for over $5000. When we called Instant Heating and Cooling Grigoriy came the same day and, we were given much more reasonable quote and promised installation within several days. And he delivered what he promised. He was very knowledgeable, professional, efficient, and trustworthy. It took only 2 days to get central air installed and we were so happy to enjoy cool air. I would recommend his services to everyone.

Great service overall; however the fact that the Tech doing the installation did not have a voltmeter, he was unable to properly troubleshoot a problem with the external unit not starting up. This ended up extending the install by a couple hours to troubleshoot by process of elimination and for another tech to arrive with the suspected bad part and a voltmeter. The second tech was able to properly diagnose the problem as a broken wire in the wall from the thermostat in less than 10 minutes from arriving and repair it in another 10.

The fan on our 23 year old air conditioner condenser failed. Area Heating performed a service call and determined that the fan's motor had failed. An Area Heating sales representative visited the site on a follow up call and prepared an estimate to replace the motor with a generic brand motor as Trane no longer supported the old motor. The Area representative provided a cost analysis of a new air conditioner versus a new heat pump. A new heat pump was selected based on the annual cost savings of the analysis. Area Heating arrived on the scheduled day and replaced the components. During the installation the technician noticed that a section of ductwork in the crawl space had split and another section had become crushed. The sections were repaired. We were very pleased with the care taken by the technicians during the installation and will be using Area Heating again in the future.

Excellent. They showed up when they said they would. Removed and replaced the entire air conditioning system including all the associated plumbing. Completed the work efficiently and made a neat installation appearance on the outside of the house where it is visible. Were careful not to track in dirt from outside as they came and went. Cleaned up after themselves. Did it all for a fair price. Will definitely use again and recommend to others.

Jerry was on time, performed a number of tests on furnace and outside equipment and found the only additional need was some refrigerant. He was friendly and considerate of our house and property. Deducted Angie's List discount.

Steve Conner was very responsive to an urgent request to replace a furnace and central air conditioner that were damaged in the December 2015 Portland flood and then subsequently failed in the January 2016 ice storm. Despite being overwhelmed himself and huge demand Steve was very responsive and accommodating. He was also extremely fair on pricing despite probably being in a position to be less accommodating. We are very thankful to have called him and would highly recommend him to anybody considering replacement of their furnace or air conditioning unit.

Basically a three-step process, the first step being a walk-through and estimate. Next came a more comprehensive on-site inspection, working out the installation details necessary. The third step was the actual installation, taking two days and performed professionally by two installers as well as an electrician to do the hook-up for the air conditioner. Everything was accomplished pretty much as expected, and nearly a month later everything is working well and performing to my satisfaction. All the clean-up and haul away was done well, and the installer was informative and helpful about performance, upkeep, and annual inspection details. One small caveat, as yet still unresolved, was a promise from the provider to give me a free air conditioner cover since my unit was installed under a tree that drops a lot of 'stuff' throughout the year. So far, still no cover. I'll update the review when and if it arrives. *UPDATE* One day after my Angie's List review posted, the manager of Sunset called me personally to inquire about the air conditioner cover issue. He was very concerned about getting the issue resolved, and sure enough, one day after our conversation the air conditioner cover was delivered to me. There can always be a communications glitch when you've got three moving parts within a company working to get an installation done, trying to cover all the details involved. The real test is how does the company react when such a glitch arises. In my opinion, Sunset passed that test solidly and reinforced the impression I had of them throughout the entire installation process: they are committed to professional customer service and making sure the customer is totally satisfied. This customer certainly is.

I hired Service Now, Inc. Heating & Cooling to replace my old gas furnace and install a new central air conditioner. I received a competitive bid featuring itemized products and services as well as specifying rebates and tax credits for which I could qualify. This was a comprehensive service, including all additional electrical work, registering my new equipment for warranty and arranging for inspections. All the players were very knowledgeable, timely and courteous. There were a couple of minor problems with the new furnace shortly after installation which they corrected right away.

We just moved into our new house when the heat wave hit. I turned on the central air conditioning and nothing happened. I called Steve at Comfort Connection and he was willing to come to my house the same day. When he arrived he checked the circuit out and there was no power to the unit. He helped us find the sub panel, turn it on and the unit had power. The unit was fine. Steve didn't charge us and he even stayed around to educate us on maintenance of the system! We are very pleased with Comfort Connection.

Recent Review: My elderly grandparent came to live with my family at the end of my teen years and we needed to install the Central AC for health reasons. I did a lot of price comparison/BBB research before we used this company. They treated me well, kept under the quote, were fast, clean and not noisy! The unit was up and going quickly. The duct work was kept out of the way and not an eye sore. This unit is still going strong after 13 years.

Recent Review: Alex Freddi Construction is an outstanding company to work with. Alex was very prompt with his estimate, was easy to talk with about design ideas for our space and really wanted to make us satisfied customers throughout our project. He encourages you to ask questions and understand everything before starting the project. Our project manager Bob and his partner Bill were just top notch. They were on time, pros, clean and efficient. They both have extensive knowledge in the construction business and communication with them was easy. Bob and Bill's work ethic and daily attention to our questions and concerns was wonderful. We wouldn't hesitate to use them in the future. Bob was easy to talk with, open to ideas and calm throughout the ups and downs of our remodel...which were very few considering the extent of it. Bob has experience in custom cabinets and woodworking. He was invaluable to us since we assembled Barker cabinets and then Bob installed the cabinets plus added gorgeous trim and crown molding. Bill is a pro and has installed hundreds of hardware floors and brings years of framing experience to a project. He worked long and hard making sure that the floor was done well. They used so many varied skills during our project - they were truly an amazing team. We had a kitchen remodel done plus other varied projects and after 9 weeks we still like them! Also, we want to include a special mention of our experience with ProDesign Solutions in Tigard - an Alex recommendation. They were just the best - Suzanne's and Jean's color sense was just spot-on as was their patience and excellent input while we were deciding what we wanted for flooring and tile. They are the best in customer service. Because of Alex, Bob and Bill's professionalism and work ethic plus based on what we know of other remodels, we are incredibly happy to have worked with Alex's company.

Recent Review: Great. They were very responsive to all communications and questions, took time to give us various options for the work, and most importantly, they do quality work at a fair price. They were very conscientious about leaving things clean and wearing protective gear, and getting the work done on time. I would most definitely recommend them and would be happy to hire them again myself.

Recent Review: Pyramid Heating and Cooling did a really great job for me! The experience from start to finish was excellent beginning with the first contact. I was very quickly scheduled for an estimate to replace my system and they sent me a short biolgraphy and photograph of the estimator/project manager. The estimator/project manager (Ralph) arrived on time and made a complete assessment of my current system and desired replacement. The estimator/project manager provided a detailed estimate of the job with all the appropriate descriptive information before he left my house. I found that their cost estimate (price) was very competetive. When I decided to accept their proposal, the project manager came to my work location to review and sign the contract. The office staff scheduled the work to meet my work schedule requirements. The customer service to get the job started was superb! The installers (Mark and Levi) arrived on time with all the necessary equipment and tools to complete the job. They brought a separate truck with the equipment to make the new sheet metal ducting required to match the new furnace to my existing duct work. The two installers worked the first day and one installer returned the second day to complete the job. They were very professional, neat, and did what I consider to be a superior job of installing the new system. I would describe them more accurately as craftsmen rather than just installers. There was obvious pride in their work and they took as much time as neeeded to complete the job to their standards. The duct work, piping and overall installation were the best that I have ever seen in a residential system. They also left my work locations cleaner than when they arrived. The installation was so good that the city inspector mentioned that they had done a nice job! The Project Manager did follow up with me to be sure that the installation was completed to my satisfaction. The system has been operating for the past six weeks and has performeed flawlessly. It has met all our expectations. The office staff provided all the infomation for the equipment warranties and the information and forms for the state and Federal tax credits. They also provided a $100 credit with Northwest Natural Gas. The support was very complete, professional and friendly. Many companies talk about customer service, but Pyramid Heating and Cooling really provides great customer service. I will use them again for any heating and air conditioning jobs and I have recommended them to my neighbors!

Recent Review: As before with previous work done by Absolute Temp Control, I wish there was a higher rating than 5. 2 days ago the air conditioning in the house stopped working. The Portland area has been enduring a series of 90-100 degree F days. John came out within ~1 hour of when I called. Turns out the HVAC unit is ~20 years old and on its last legs. John replaced the thermostat and fixed the wheezing HVAC’s other maladies. There are three of us formerly sweating humans and 2 no longer panting dogs here and we are all grateful to Absolute Temp Control for their speedy repair.

Recent Review: It went great! Mark showed up on time, took about 5 minutes to devise a plan how to make this project work, left for no more than 30 minutes to get the proper supplies, then got to work. Mark was polite, personable, communicative and efficient with the work. All in all it was about 1.5 hours to complete the job. This is the second job we've hired On Electric to do for us and we will not hesitate to hire them again in the future if the need arises.

Recent Review: We were in need of an air conditioner as the home we bought had forced air but no A/C. WE chose three companies to compare and set appointments. Ed came out from Home Energy Group and bid on the project. He was extremely knowledgeable and went over the details of installation and equipment. We went with H.E.G. because of the price and recommendation from a neighbor who had used them in the past. They installed a Rheem 3.5 ton A/C, ran additional duct work for a large room, changed out the thermostat and added a remote sensor that we can use anywhere in the home. Great work, very professional and a super price compared to the other two companies. We will continue to recommend H.E.G.

Recent Review: We did a full replacement of our natural gas furnace and AC unit that were 22 years old. The AC gave out after last summer's brutal heat, so it gave us a change to also upgrade the furnace to something more efficient and quieter. Dave was professional, highly competent, and very competitive on price. He also was easy to work with and to schedule with.

Recent Review: When we moved to West Linn we signed up with Evergreen for their maintenance program. We knew that the Furnace & AC would eventually need replacing but wanted to give it some TLC before we had to replace it. The winter was not good for our Furnace and at the peak of the cold temperatures on Saturday night the Furnace gave up. Bill, the owner of Evergreen, was out early Sunday morning to try to repair the Furnace, after a couple of hours we realized it was time for a new Furnace. Bill was very honest, he told us that the circuit board needed replacing but he could not be sure that was the only problem and it could get expensive for a short term fix. Bill went back to his shop and kindly bought back space heaters, then delivered more on the monday. On monday "TJ" the Evergreen Tech expert came out and explained all the options for replacing the Furnace and Filter, and then explained it might be easier and less costly in the long term to replace the AC while they were doing the Furnace work. TJ went through all the options, there was no pressure to buy any particular system and he told us that he understood if we wanted to get a second opinion. Having worked with Bill on sunday and having TJ work with us on monday there was no question of going elsewhere. We placed the order for the equipment on monday, and were amazed at the follow up by the office team. The ladies in the office were in contact on a regular basis advising when we could expect the installation, great service. The installation was set for the end of the week, and the installation team were excellent. They worked quickly and efficiently, were polite and kept us informed of what they were doing. They made sure we had heat for the weekend, and finalized the work on the AC on the monday. The service did not stop once the installation was complete. Bill and TJ came back to our house to make sure we were pleased with the results of the installation and make sure we knew how to operate the system. We highly recommend Bill and the Evergreen team for any Heating/AC or Fireplace work that you need in the West Linn/Portland area. They really understand the meaning of service and personal attention.

Recent Review: We hired Joe for our exterior remodel and could not have been happier with the result. Joe and his entire team are perfectionists, with extreme attention to detail and high standards for the final result. They noticed many things that we would have glossed-over, gave us all of our options when unexpected circumstances arose, and went above-and-beyond at each step of the way. Joe is honest and trustworthy, easy to work with and a great communicator. We've recommended him to several friends.

Recent Review: Wanted routine maintenance on both, but wanted to make sure they were still doing okay as the units are about 15 years old. He arrived on time. He looked at the airconditioner and said it was in better than average shape because it is in the shade. There were two worn parts that he replaced. He was clear that if I was going to replace the unit soon, I could probably do without. Said that with those parts I had a good chance the unit would run for quite a while. Replaced the filter in my furnace and said it was fine. Nice guy, honest, helpful, would call them again.

They arrived right on time. The two employees who installed the central air conditioner were courteous, polite, and answered all of my questions. They gave instruction on how to use the new thermostat. I would not hesitate to use this company again. I am a little slow on writing this review, but with the warm weather we have been having, decided now was the time to truly state that we LOVE our central air conditioner.
