I purchased an air conditioner, furnace, smart thermostat, and water heater from Buchner in mid-June 2018. This was my first time purchasing these types of equipment; and so I thoroughly researched brands and installation companies in my area. Some of the sites on which I researched were Consumer Reports, Yelp, Google Reviews, and Angie's List. Through this research I developed a list of questions to ask when receiving installation quotes. In total I received quotes from 4 companies. I learned a good amount from the quotes I received as well. The top criteria I used to decide on a company were price, equipment brand, and company reputation. Buchner installs Carrier HVAC products and this was a top rated brand from my research. The sales rep. from Buchner did not give me a hard sell, unlike 2 of the other companies. The Buchner sales style was essentially "These are the steps to install the equipment correctly, and here's how much it will cost." I was given a few installation options. Sean, the sales rep., was very accommodating to a couple minor nuisances I requested. Mike and Jesse, the installers were very knowledgeable. They did a very neat job installing. There were no surprises, and that's a good thing. They finished the job early and spent some extra time showing me how to use the smart thermostat. Overall, Buchner exceeded all of my criteria. They took care of everything from start to finish, even setting up the inspection from the City of Aurora. In addition, they have great warranties for their equipment and labor. I would use them again and recommend them to install equipment to members of my family.

Very good experience, all were very professional , friendly and knowledgeable. They answered all questions I had. I met with Sean on 7/25 for estimate to replace our 29 year old furnace and air conditioner. Sean worked up estimate and was able to set me up with installment date the very next week on 7/30. Mike and Jesse did the installation. They came at 7:00 and finished around 2:00. They put all equipment on a square base and replaced the sheet metal that had corroded because of an old humidifier they removed. They left everything clean and neat. I was able to take advantage of $750 in rebates which lowered the final investment to $5794. I highly recommend them.

Very efficient, courteous, and on-time service. They took their time and paid attention to every detail, and removed all the old stuff and cleaned up after themselves. Its difficult to find this level of service these days.

These guys are excellent! We have tried a few other companies - but we are glad we found Buchner. Our AC unit had been freezing up for a few years. We had been limping it along, refilling it twice a year, but it finally froze up for good. I believe there was something wrong with the coil as well, but I can't recall what. We contacted a few companies to come out and give a quote on fixing the unit. We had used Buchner before for our general maintenance and repair, but we wanted to compare them against some other companies. Buchner gave us the most detailed information, taking time to explain in detail the intricacies of the AC system and how each part fit into it. They also explained how to construct a well-tuned system. Buchner gave us costs for repairing and replacing the system, and explained the pros and cons of each. There was no pressure, and they let us decide what was best for us. Once we made our choice, they installed the system quickly and professionally! Everyone we had contact with was very professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend them to anyone!

It went great they were very professional, clean, and courteous. I thought my water faucet outside needed to be replaced and they said they would save me money by just fixing what needed to be fixed and not replacing it. They were great and I would use them again.

I am comfortable with them coming to my house and there hasn't been any issues. They are friendly, explain everything so I understand it, document everything they have done in detail, put stickers on the water heater and furnace to document what they did and who did it. They always know who was here last, what they did and I will continue to use them.

We had Buchner do all our cleaning and maintenance. One this appointment they pointed out that our fan moter was only working part of the time and that we were leaking freon. The estimated cost of the repairs was not that much less than the total cost of replacing the unit with a more energy efficient one. They came at the exact time they said they would, worked extremely hard and efficiently and were done in no time. They were so nice and even let our 2 year old come watch the and quot;worker men fix the machineand quot; I would for sure recommened them. I gave them a and quot;Band quot; on the price because you can get the unit for cheaper, but we are loyal to them for all our service and wanted to give them the business.

They came out and changed the vent pipe for the furnace that was rusting and in spots had holes that was allowing gasses to vent in the house. They did a great job and even changed the angle from what was there so that it wouldn't rust again! Each contact with them was great and would use them again for other HVAC or plumbing needs!

My husband and I recently purchased an older home that did not have air conditioning. Initially We tried to get five quotes but didn't realize it would be such a difficult project. A few of the people that came out never even responded with a quote. Chris was very professional, was quick to respond and gave us a fair quote. He was great about following-up on the hundreds of questions we had. Through the project Chris was very helpful and kept us up with everything that was going on. He even planted a few bushes next to the AC unit to comply with Glen Ellyn city ordinance! We felt so comfortable working with Buchner and were very impressed with the finished product. Doing a project this big was a little scary by I am glad we decided to go with them.

The job (installing a water heater)was completed and done as promised. Right down starting with the office and all the way to the installer was exceptional. I would highly recommend this company for heating, cooling and plumbing.

Description of Work
We have used Buchner Heating and Cooling for the last 5 years and their service is exceptional. They started a Plumbing business also and we used them in November 2012 for a water problem. Thought it was our Hot Water Heater but turned out to be our external sump pump. Tim (plumber) came out right away and fixed the problem. Monday December 23 we had another leak and this time it was our water heater. Buchner quoted us a price and we compared it to another plumber in the area and Buchner was 400.00 less. As it turned out our heater was till under warranty and all we had to pay was for the installation. Tim Bayer did a fantastic job and was very neat about his work and was very professional.

The overall job including follow up work went very well.

Description of Work
I contacted Buchner on a Sunday evening for an urgent AC leak...I received a call early Mon morning and a repair technician two hours later. They diagnosed the problem and offered several options for repair far more comprehensive and less expensive than the previous contractor. Their follow up , punctuality, professionalism and quality of work were top notch.....these guys are very good.

He did not have a replacement on this truck. I watched him during the service call and saw that it would be easy for me to do a replacement of the ignitor. I am a handyman type and have experience with electrical devices. The weather not very cold and we could do without the furnace working for a few days, as we have a 2 furnace house. The part number for the ignitor was on a tag still attached to the bad ignitor. I asked if I could buy one on the internet and he guessed that a replacement ignitor could be bought that way. We concluded the servicing with him just billing for the initial service call ($65) and giving me a quote (about $200) if I ended up needing Buchner to come out again and install a new ignitor. I went on the internet, easily located a replacement ignitor, and purchased 2 (about $70 shipping included) so I could install one in the furnace with the failed ignitor and one in our other furnace as it was the same age. The ignitors arrived in one day and I installed both in less than 30 minutes. Furnaces are working well with the newly installed ignitors. I really appreciated that the service guy was open about what he was doing and did not pressure me to have him complete the job, i.e. get the replacement part from a local supply house and install it, after I expressed a desire to try to get the part and to do the install myself. Very knowledgeable and customer friendly. I will not hesitate to use Buchner again.

Description of Work
Service guy arrived at the scheduled time and determined the problem with the gas furnace was a bad ignitor (electric element in the gas chamber that heats up to cause the gas to burst into flame). I was with him the entire time and he was very nice to explain everything as he went about determining the problem.

Tech came, inspected unit - found small problem - fixed and serviced the unit for the winter ..... Honestly thought we needed a new heater and could of been sold a new unit but Buchner's Tech was spot on with his repair and said we had several more years of solid service from our existing unit .... We appreciate their honestly and prompt service!

Wonderful. When I called in the morning, Michelle answered and was able to arrange the schedule to help me out since I travel quite a bit and my window for service calls is really limited. She also had me check a few things ahead of time which really helped the service person-turning off unit to melt the ice, changing the filter, etc. Mark came out and found 2 potential leak sites, which he repaired and then filled the unit up with refrigerant.

Description of Work
My air conditioning unit was not cooling my house. I called Buchners and they had someone out here by the afternoon. They found a leak in the coolant system and recharged my unit.
