Showed up on time. Diagnosed problem. Fixed it. Warned me that the fix would only last a short time, which is correct.

After getting several quotes from different vendors on replacing my furnace and central air conditioner, Air Experts gave the best price and product for my house. The installation was completed the following day after talking with the sales representative (David). Overall, the sales repsentative,technicians, and support staff were professional, positive and helpful,and customer focus. I felt that Air Experts went the ?extra mile? by taking care of my needs. I would highly recommend them to others. Great Job and keep up the good work.

Showed up on time. Diagnosed problem. Fixed it. Warned me that the fix would only last a short time. I bought a big deal from Angie's List on this service. However, the service guys had to go through what was and wasn't covered. The service guys finally made it clear to me, but it wasted some time for them and me. Thermo Direct and other service providers should make it very clear what their big deals or other services include and do not include. They should remember that most people like me really do not know much about the terms, functions, and other aspects of the service and machinery the professionals are working with. In the end, the Thermo Direct service guys did what the big deal said they would, plus educated me on their different services.

Air conditioner quit working on a Friday evening. Within one hour of placing my call, I received a call back. Service was set for Saturday morning at 9:00am, showed up on time and replaced a defective part. Airconditioner has been working great ever since! Would definitely call Lee for service in the future.

My A/C unit was barely cooling. Technician was on time and was polite and in good order. I was at work, and my wife showed technician the unit. First he called me and told me I needed a new unit. I asked why and he said it would not even come on. I told him that was not the problem - the unit is running but not cooling well. He hung up and called back saying okay the unit is now running. I have no idea how this could happen, but to jump to "I need a new unit" so fast was a blow to technician's credibility. Now the technician is telling me that tells me that the outside coil is really dirty and that's why A/C unit is not running well. I said okay please clean it. He said okay. He wrapped up the job and gave bill to my wife. That was where things ended up that day. Except the unit still was not cooling well. About two weeks later, on a really hot day, I went out to look at the unit, and I pulled the grill on the front. The cooling coil was FILTHY (I took pictures including some before and after shots). This coil was not cleaned - the unit is 6 years old and I have to believe there was 6 years of deposit on the coil. I cleaned the unit myself but it still did not cool well. So I called another contractor out to have a look. Within minutes of arrival, NEW technician tells me the evaporator coil is leaking. He shows me the oils stains on the coil, and also uses a freon gas detector to confirm the leakage. I need a new coil. Within a week. coil is replaced and the unit is now running fine. Bottom line - Alpine technician did not clean the cooling coil like he said he was going to do, and he missed the evaporator coil leaking, which was the real problem. So I am left wondering what I paid $195 for. I called Alpine to complain. When I reached customer service, they gave me a separate name and number to call. I called and got voice mail, left a message - no call back as of yet, still waiting. So points off for problem resolution as well.

I knew that my upstairs air conditioner had a slow leak and needed freon. The unit is 15 years old and needs to be replaced but I am not ready for the required cash outlay at this time. I called Air Experts early Thursday July 3rd not expecting service before the next week due to the 4th being a holiday. I explained the situation to the lady that answered the phone and she said she would check the schedule. When she came back on the phone she gave me a 2 hour time window for the same afternoon. I was blown away by the quick response and the service tech arrived at the beginning of the time window. As it turned out the unit was completely out and required almost 4 lbs of freon. There was no pressure to replace the unit and, when I asked about the cost to replace the unit, the tech told me that I would not have to replace the furnace, as I was to by another company last year, but only the coil which would save me quite a bit of money. I had already estimated that the freon and service call would run around $400 and was pleasantly surprised when that was what I was charged. I have a problem with my downstairs heating so I will be scheduling a service call with Air Experts this fall.

Smead Electrical / HVAC
5.0
Jeff Smead has performed two projects for us. He replaced our central air conditioner, and he upgraded our furnace fan when the motor was failing. Both times Jeff and his crew did a great job for us. And Jeff stands behind his work. When called Jeff responds promptly and efficiently. Two thumbs up for Smead Electrical / HVAC.

Alpine's sales rep, Bill Graves, came to the house several times to review the estimates he'd given me and to answer additional questions/concerns. I signed the contract on Aug. 7th and the heat pump was installed on the 8th!! Great service! Due to additional work that needed to be done for the ductwork in the crawlspace, the service techs couldn't complete the returns that day but the air conditioning was up and running perfectly before they left that day. The service techs had to return on the 12th to complete the installation of the new returns but that was completed within a couple of hours. My thanks to Bill for his help in ensuring that I had a good system for this house, and to the techs who were all courteous and professional and ensured that the system was properly installed!.

Recent Review: They could look at their work a little closer before they leave because I saw that they were missing a screw in the motor. They came out quickly.

Recent Review: We had a wet crawl space. I was very happy with their work. They were just honest and everything looks great. They were on time. I think their prices were okay because it is very expensive to do that stuff done. I think this was a pretty fair pricing from what I could tell from the others I got. It looks very nice and doesn't even smell down there anymore.

Recent Review: Triangle Classic Homes Owner - Ralph Rohn Overview: Quality: 5 stars Timeliness of completion of work for my house: · July 2015 - 2 days for painting an entire house with a crew of 6-7. Crew leader: Jesus · December 2010 - 1.5 days for roofing an entire 2500 square foot 1.5 story house. Crew leader: Rudy · January 2011 - 3 days for new sheetrock and painting living room wall that suffered mold buildup from previous leaking roof. Note: spackling needs time to dry overnight properly before painting. Crew leader: another Jesus · May 2014 - 1 week for gutters due to unexpected complications> Crew leader: Noberto In general Ralph?s subcontracted crews work extremely fast, methodically, professionally, and clean up well. Ralphs demeanor: Likes to kid around with the home owner with the intent with of establishing a long term friendship. If you are the type who easily gets offended with someone who is not politically correct and has a dry sense of humor you may not like Ralph. I like Ralph. Demeanor of Ralph?s subcontractor crew leaders: cheerful and eager to do good work. Ralph?s Philosophy: Customer does not pay anything until the job is complete and customer is completely satisfied. Generally prefers a verbal contract and what is written is not highly detailed. With most contractors before Ralph I found it necessary for a detailed contract because of their dishonesty. With Ralph I found it is only necessary to be basically clear what I want. He has the experience and character to get it done correctly. It you do find something that one of his crews did not do correctly then simply and nicely call it to his attention without panicking and he will gladly make sure it is corrected to your satisfaction in a timely manner (no long drawn out delays). The only time I panicked was during the gutter install when two of Noberto?s crew during his absence did not seal the end-caps properly and align the downspouts properly. When I showed Noberto the evidence he cheerfully corrected the issues himself. I?ve come to realize I don?t have to babysit any of Ralph?s crews like I have had to do with other contractors when Ralph was booked up solid with other customers. With Ralph?s crews for the most part - watch and be amazed with delight. The only negative: Ralph is partial to Plygem windows because Plygem gives contractors the least amount of grief and better discounts. My experience with Plygem, even their high end windows, is of poor quality in protection from the elements. Note: they were installed by a previous contractor. When I ordered replacement casement sashes I had to return the first set due to poor packaging and scarring. On the replacement set a year after install, the flaps that protect from the rain began to tear off easily when opening the window. Note: Plygem took over M&W Windows. Note: even a good quality window will not last long if poorly installed whereas a poorer quality window will last longer if installed properly and homeowner follows manufacturer?s instructions for proper maintenance. Advice: When it comes to windows and siding it is best to budget/ set aside in advance at least $35K for a 2600 square foot house. Reason is the manufacturers of siding change their thickness on a regular basis and window manufacturers also do not maintain backwards compatibility when it comes to dimensions. Twenty year old windows and siding cannot be replaced piecemeal which my wife and I have learned the frequently frustrating and expensive way over the last 20 years. My recommendations for: · Siding - LP Smartside · Windows - Marvin Be careful even with installers who have been certified in installing certain product lines. Certification does not necessarily mean they will actually execute a proper install. My regret is that Ralph was tied up back to back with large contracts when we realized we needed a major overhaul done at once. The contractor who was certified and who had a five star rating on Home Advisor who installed the LP Smartside and Marvins was a nightmare. After three months of nightmares, we checked the website for his ratings and they were no longer on the website. We had to force them to get the work done properly after showing them over 500 photos and documenting thoroughly things poorly done and destroyed. They backed out of painting our house when they realized to total cost of repairs would exceed $30K in which case a building permit is needed in Raleigh, NC. Fortunately Ralph?s painting contractor Jesus made up for our previous trauma and our house looks beautiful again. Ralph of Triangle Classic Homes is my go to contractor when he is not tied up with other major contracts. If you need piecemeal work done then it is likely you will need to hunt for a handyman who has good recommendations from people you have met face to face and not ratings on some website. A ratings website is a good start to narrow down your choices but ideally should be followed up with your own personal contacts face to face, phone calls, emails, etc with people whose judgment you already trust.

Recent Review: We have used this company for over ten years now. We buy appliances, central air conditioners, and furnaces from them. We keep going back because of the excellent service we always receive from them. We have never had a problem. We always get a fair deal. I don't recall what we paid for the furnace.
