Reviews in Tampa Bay to Install Central AC

Element Solutions Air Conditioning & Heating LLC
5.0
Our central air would not stay on, and we were not able to get in touch with the company that had installed it about three years ago. I got onto Angie's List and called two companies and quickly received a call back from Element Solutions Air Conditioning & Heating. After describing the problem, he said they would be there in one hour. We live in St. Petersburg, and he was coming from Tampa. This was on a Friday about 4 p.m. They arrived at our house within an hour. First thing he introduced himself and the tech. They got right down to business, and Allie saw it was the capacitor, which was not in "spec". We went outside, and he showed my husband and me the part and explained what was going on and said that it needed replacing. He told us how much that would be. He replaced the capacitor making sure it was in "spec." He topped off the freon, and they cleaned everything up before they left. The price for this was reasonable, and my husband and I were happy we called this company. Plus, they are so pleasant and very nice. The next day Allie called to ask how the AC was running, We told him it was ice cold. Then on Sunday it stopped working, and I called him on Monday. Once again they promptly returned the call, and again he came promptly. It was the thermostat, which had been acting up for awhile; but, of course, not when they were here the first time. Allie explained what was going on with it and told us it needed to be replaced and how much that would be. He replaced it with a better brand than we had. Once again reasonable price. We asked him if they would come back start of every season for a maintenance checkup. Thank you, Element Solutions Air Conditioning & Heating.

Our house main air conditioner went dead on a Friday evening...about the worst time it could happen. We called American Home Shield (AHS), our home warranty provider, to request emergency service because temps were 95+ and we have an elderly family member. AHS did NOT do a good job for us and after many phone calls over the weekend and broken promises, we were told on Sunday that All Florida Appliance would be our provider on Monday. I didn't hear from All FL early on Monday and when I called them they were still going through various emails. I finally did get a call about mid-morning and was told a repairman would be at the house at about noon. The repairman arrived on time, immediately identified the problem as a bad capacitor, installed a new capacitor and had it running quickly. At my request, he also checked the Freon charge and operation of the unit. He did a thorough exam and found all in good working order. The technician was fast, knowledgeable and thorough. Overall, an excellent experience.

The repairman showed up and said that he had to return the next day because the unit had to thaw. Once he came back, he checked the unit and found no leaks, pumped in three gallons of freon (at 90.oo per gallon), and suggested that we replace the entire unit because he and quot;could not guarantee how long it would last. It could freeze up again tomorrow.and quot;' We had this experience with this company before, with the service person suggesting expensive additions or replacements. The last time we had their and quot;free inspection,and quot; we had a one thousand dollar av lamp installed that we found could have been done for less than three hundred.

They come twice a year and check to see how the units are working and change the filters. It costs $258 a year. We called them out this time because our the fan stopped running. They came out the same day and fixed the problem in one hour. They are very professional, knowledgeable, and take time to answer any questions we might have. They call before they come out.

My central air conditioner failed on a Saturday afternoon in 90 degree heat. Mike responded quickly and found the problem. The blower unit had failed in the air handler. Mike tried to several temporary fixes to try to get the system to run so we could have air through the night, however nothing would work. Mike was able to get the repair parts on a Sunday and install them before lunch time. We are extremely happy with Mike's service and commitment to get our system repaired quickly. We have recommend him to our friends and family if they ever need AC service.

The service provided was exceptional. They came out the same day we called even though it was after normal business hours. Rich, the technician, worked until almost 9:30 pm to rectify our problem. He was very professional, put protectors on his shoes to protect our house, and went out of his way to get us the most for our money. I would not hesitate to use this company again and would highly recommend them to friends and family!

I called and the man I spoke to said there was FREE diagnosis for Angie's List customers. He said that diagnosis would cost me only $69.50. It was only after additional questioning on my part that he admitted that the "free" diagnosis he mentioned was only free IF you had them do the work. In other words, if you didn't have them do the work, it would cost $149.50!!! That's their idea of "free" diagnosis? I felt that what he told me in the beginning was misleading.

Our central air conditioner stopped providing cold air last night. I called Blair's at 8:00 AM and a technician was at our house after lunch. He found a faulty capacitor was not starting the compressor. The company repaced it at no charge as the part was still under warranty. The A/C is working fine now.

The two installers showed up on time and did a really good job. Our recently installed replacement 5 ton Central Air Conditioner was not able to provide enough cooling to our bedroom because the bedroom was very far from the air handler in our garage. Because of this, we had been running our central air at 72 degrees day and night causing the system to run 24/7. This caused our electric bill to be way too high and would have shortened the life of the system, Now we set the central air at 78 during the day and 82 at night and the bedroom unit for 72 at night. Mini split ductless units are more efficient than central air units as they use inverter technology. We expect our total electric bill to be much lower from here on.

If you have an emergency and they have to come out on a Sunday, for example, they have different rates. They know what they are doing and are very, very good.

Recent Review: I decided to get the work done in two phases. Phase I began August 13 and included installing hurricane-impact windows and doors and was completed on schedule in 5 days. Phase II began October 7, was the major portion of the remodel, and was completed ahead of schedule in 6 weeks. I couldn't ask for a better contractor and am extremely pleased with the professionalism and quality of work. I pretty much had all my details worked out in advance, so all the ordering of cabinetry, countertop material, etc. went quite smoothly. There was hardly a day when some kind of work wasn't in progress. I would highly recommend Total Home Contractors for all your remodel needs. Note: I purchased the kitchen appliances, faucet, and ceiling fans myself and the contractor installed them as part of the project.

Recent Review: Update from my last report on this company. Previously Hot to Cold came out and tried to fix my problem. In that is was not really fixable he did what he could. Spent a couple of hours working on it and then, because he couldn't fix the problem to HIS satisfaction, did not charge me for that visit. A couple of days later the AC broke again. Wayne came out took a look and then discussed with me the options. We choose to replace the faltering system with a new one. They were out the very next day (SATURDAY) they worked diligently and continually to, he even got a call for a second job nearby so they split their team and did both jobs. It was refreshing to meet with Wayne and get to know him. He did exactly what he said he was going to do and at the price he said he would do it at, no surprises. And by the way his price was the least expensive. There might be some benefit going with the big mega A/C companies around here. But for my money get a excellent quality local company. Develop a personal one on one relationship and you will be more than satisfied, I am. Try this guy!!!

Recent Review: Weathermakers put simply is fantastic! I purchased my house three years ago, and their sticker was on my unit, so I took a chance. Their service is prompt, thorough, and done right every time. I had to replace my central AC and not only were they very accommodating, their pricing is extremely competitive. They came in and did the end-to-end install in 6 hours. Their install technicians were very courteous and did not mind me asking questions. The installed unit was done with extreme care, and the attention to detail was impeccable. We are very satisfied with our new AC. I would recommend Weathermakers to anyone!!

Recent Review: After having our AC unit serviced 3 times in 2 months and considering the age and condition of our AC, it was recommended that we replace it. We had three companies provide an estimate. Advanced Cooling was nearly $2,000 less than the company that we had been using and they provided us with a 12 year warranty rather than a 10 year that the other company was going to provide. Advanced Cooling installed our air conditioner the next day. The installation went very smoothly. We live in a condo and the unit had to be installed on the roof which necessitated the use of a crane. We choose Advanced Cooling largely based on the reviews here on Angie's List. I am very glad we did and am glad to recommend this company without reservation. A great job.

Recent Review: Excellent experience! 1st estimate was with the company who contracts with Home Depot (Southern A/C in Winter Haven). Was not impressed with their estimator, felt estimate was too high and that he was trying to force me into making an immediate decision. The opposite was true with the estimator from Springer Brothers. He looked at the estimate from Southern A/C and gave me their price on the same units plus several additional sizes. They had a lower price than Home Depot for the same Trane equipment. He told me which unit would work best for me based on the square footage of the house and didn't try to talk me into a more expensive unit than I needed. I told the estimator with such a large purchase I needed several days to decide and he had no problem with that. Once I decided, they were able to schedule the installation within 2 weeks. The installers were very professional and completed the work in approximately 6 hrs. As part of the new system they installed a new thermostat, and showed me how to use it before leaving. They were very patient with any questions I had, and even changed the inside A/C filter to save me having to climb a ladder that day. Wanted to wait until I got a couple of electric bills before submitting this review, the new system has shown savings on the electric bill. The old system was 14 years old and not at all efficient.

Recent Review: We have had our Payne AC for 27 years. Started a maintenance plan with "The Comfort Authority" a year ago. Over the years, we normally kept our internal air around 72 degrees with 56 percent humidity. It continued to work just fine. But after our last servicing, TJ recommended we start shopping for a new AC system. He naturally recommended his company and more specifically, an 'Inverter AC System'. Asked him to provide a quote. Along with the quote, we received a phone call from the owner of Comfort Authority, Steve Cox. He was very positive and confident about his being the best company with the best people. After quotes from 2 other AC companies, and more research on the products recommended by all 3 companies, I decided on the Inverter AC technology. Went back to The Comfort Authority and closed the deal for a new SEER 17+, 5 ton Inverter System with Air Handler in the attic and compressor outside. As far as I could gather, the inverter system worked with a variable compressor motor that housed a master controller that communicated with the air handler controller and thermostat. The speed of the motor was regulated by data received from the indoor/outdoor sensors of the air handler and thermostat. The purpose being more efficient and scalable cooling and heating with less loss of energy. The decision to choose The Comfort Authority was based on pricing, equipment, and convincing assurances that the installers were skilled and reliable professionals. The Inverter AC System, manufactured and branded by Daiken for the Comfort Authority was installed yesterday by Peter, Marshall, Austin, and Freddie. They called to say they were on their way to make our 9:00 am appointment. They arrived at 8:50am. After introducing himself and all the other members of the team, Peter went over every listed item in the order, ensuring we had an understanding and agreement before the work was started. I sign the acknowledgements. They got started. In addition to removing the old system and bringing in the new, they installed a new pad for the compressor, replaced the grates on the return air risers, crawled through the attic and Mastek sealed the existing flex ducting and air handler, added electric surge suppressors for the air handler and compressor, whole house filter with new plenum to maximize coverage with new air handler, soldered copper tubing and insulated piping, zip tied the wiring, installed a new thermostat with a new app for my mobile phone, along with a good lesson on its use. Even though it started raining real hard, it didn't slow them down a bit. They opened a portable tarp to cover the outside installation. All the work is best described as team work. Everyone helping each other get their work done. The work was done well and on time. After sweeping and removing all debris from the attic, garage, and outside work areas, they left us with an amazing AC system. Our normal comfort level is now 2 degrees higher, 74F, and 10 degrees lower humidity, 46. What an amazingly comfortable and cost saving experience.

Recent Review: He was all around great to deal with. If it wasn't for the sensor having to be repositioned, we wouldn't of had to hire him because he basicly told me just to flush the hose a couple of times over the phone. Which he said is the most common problem why air conditioners stop working.

Recent Review: Luis showed up on time for quote. He was more thorough than the other electricians that came out to quote. His quote was higher but he explained what needed to be done and pointed out that there might have been added costs with the other electricians since their quotes did not describe all services. For example, he quoted $259 per ceiling fan vs $127 from another electrician but the other electrician never said anything about the box necessary to mount the ceiling fan. In addition, he was willing to replace my thermostats when no one else would. I did not want to have to hire another contractor for such a job. He was able to start the work immediately and explained that it would be a 2 day job and asked for me to prioritize. After day one, I had my new chandelier, ceiling fans and thermostats installed. This was a Thurs and we agreed the rest of the work would be performed the following Monday. He arrived Monday morning promptly and before starting any new works, made sure I was satisfied with the work done previously. He took the time to answer all of my questions and followed up on each one. He finished the rest of the work, went over everything again with me. He even discounted the original price on one item because it did not take him as long as he expected to resolve! He was very clean and made sure each work area was as clean (if not cleaner) than he found it. He was courteous and professional. I will use him again for sure.

What do customers in Tampa say about Central AC Installation?

Replaced the central air conditioner system and replaced the platform the air handler sets on. Very professional and quality workmanship in all aspects. The installers arrived on time and spent most of the day performing the replacement. Communication with the company before, during and after the installation was excellent. The installers did not take away the old concrete platform the day of the installation. The next day, I called the office to report that the platform had not been taken away, and LPAC removed it the same day.
