Reviews in Sacramento to Repair Cracked Heat Exchangers

Buckley Heat Air Solar
5.0
I was very satisfied with their service. The price was reasonable compared to the other quotes I received and the work was completed on time. I appreciate the honesty the sales guy showed. Other folks I called tried to sell me a new system but Brian was honest and professional and told me that a repair could be done and replacing the whole unit was not necessary. The heat exchanger was replaced as soon as the replacement part was received from the manufacturer. I will use Buckley Parnell's services again in the future and I would also recommend it to my friends.

The service men that worked on our unit seemed very knowledgeable, however, my biggest issue with this company is the up sell. Our AC went out the week of 108 degree days so we were in a desperate state. They quote you a high price then tell you can lower it substantially if you sign a contract buying their maintenance program at a $12.99 monthly automatic credit card charge. They make you seem like a fool not going that way because the original quote is much higher. So they expected us to pay in full for the 2 parts that needed to be ordered and the labor to install before performed. They left without the repair, had to wait for 4 days to get the part to fix the AC. Had to wait 2 weeks for the second part and installation. They also gave us a recommendation to replace our ducting and vent size increase. We're basically roped into the service contract for a year but I think I will get another opinion and quote on the additional recommendation. I hate feeling roped into a years financial commitment that I didn't want.

Buckley Heat Air Solar

The thermostat broke on my house so I first called Bell Brothers. They came out ( for a $79 fee) and looked at the thermostat and quoted me $252 to replace the thermostat. Then the tech went up on the roof, checked the Heat unit itself and told me that I had a cracked heat exchanger and that would be an extra $1,187. Well that was too much so I called around to get some more quotes. Basically paid Bell Brothers $79 to give me a quote. The money isn't even applicable to the actual repair either. Got a quote from Buckley of $658 plus $160 for the thermostat. They had to wait for the part but got the everything fixed in a few days. The sales lady was responsive and called me back and I saved $$$ by getting more quotes.

Technician was right one time. He was very professional and did a very conscientious work, which included cleaning the furnace and checking on the heat exchanger.

I ordered the service because I wanted a cheap second opinion on the condition of my gas heater prior to replacement. The technician arrived timely, and when I told him this was a second look to see if the heat exchanger was cracked, he took the entire unit apart. He did find several cracks and showed them to me, at which point I said not to bother with the tune-up or air duct inspection since the HVAC replacement would take care of any operational or duct problems (CA requires an independent test for duct leakage on all HVAC installations). He reassembled the heater, cleaned up, inspected the water heater, and called a sales rep to come over immediately to provide a quote to replace the HVAC system. I ended up choosing a different contractor for replacement based on price, since all my bidders were ranked equally high on Angie's List. From beginning to end both the service technician and the sales rep were professional and courteous.

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.

Beutler Air Conditioning and Plumbing
5.0
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.

Originally told the heat exchanger was cracked and needed to be replaced. I decided to get a second opinion. That service technician said there was absolutely not wrong with my exchanger. I then brought in Pecks Heating and Air which took pictures and video of the heat exchanger proving nothing wrong with my heater. I'm know pursuing legal action again Service Champions.

Service tech noted several problem areas most specifically with the furnace. He indicated that there were 2 cracks in the heat exchanger and he recommended that the furnace not be used until heat exchanger was replaced.. I was given a full report and as I had a home warranty in place told the tech I would contact the home waranty service. Home warranty provider sent out an inspector who could NOT find any cracks in the exchanger. Not sure why there was such a divergent opinion between the tech from Putman and the inspector snet by the Home Warranty company.

Greiner Heating & Air Conditioning
4.0
The service technician arrived after setting up a time when my tenant would be home. The pipe was replaced, but then after another service call, Greiner informed me that the heat exchanger was non functional and the entire furnace needed replacing. I called several other heating contractors to get a second opinion. The technician did not explain to me what was wrong and the other contractors did. It was not the heat exchanger that was the problem, but something else, so I ended up going with another contractor to replace the furnace.

Recent Review: From Chris who came out to do our estimate, another Chris who came to measure, and Rudy and his helpers who did the installation. Everyone was great. Very professional, very hard working, polite, and pleasant. Even my son was impressed because the installers were very considerate of his three cats. We received several estimates before we decided to go with One Hour but none could compare. They offered the best price and more extras. They provided (and installed) the seven smoke detectors that we would need to pass the city inspection. No one else did that.

Recent Review: Adam was great. He identify the source of my furnace leak and was able to repair it. I had another HVAC vendor who told me its probably my heat exchanger and the whole furnace needs to be replaced. What a difference! I will absolutely use Roseville Sheet Metal from now on. BTW, the price was very reasonable.
