heating and cooling testimonials2

Great Service

Dec 15,2017 by Ross Guilford
We ran out of heating oil around 6 PM on Wednesday evening.  The temperature outside was around 35 degrees and there was a strong wind to make matters worse.  We are renting an old house with terrible insulation. I sent an email to First Call at around 8PM and they called me the next morning at 8:10 AM .  By 9:15 AM First Call had shown up and filled our tank.  We are warm again.  

I am so thankful that First Call responded so much faster than expected.  Oh yeah.  I had sent another heating oil company an email at the same time as First Call and it is now two days later and I still haven't heard from them.  First Call is awesome.

The install techs, Nathan B, Jason S, Joe G, Chester, & Luke from First Call were terrific.  They completed my conversion from oil to a heat pump in one day.  This was suppose to take two days, but three more techs came over after they had finished another job to help complete my conversion.  They were professional, curtious, and patient, as was my salesman, Steve.  I am very happy with my new heating and cooling system.
Thank you!

Jason, I want to commend Joe and Nathan for all their efforts in the installation of our furnace and air conditioner.  They did it efficiently and cooperatively.  All of our questions at the time were answered and our requests were complied with.  
We do not do reviews for general availability to the public but I wanted to convey our appreciation.  I did not see another way to do this on the company website.  Will you please see this gets to the appropriate place?

Harold and Chris made a great team and spent  four hours making sure that my duct work was completely clean before the installation of a new gas furnace.  They were very thorough and good at explaining the process to me.

The First Call team just cleaned my ducts.  They were really nice, efficient and left the house cleaner than they found it.  Good work, Harold and Jamie!

I had 2 Mitsubishi A/C units installed in 2014.  Everything has worked perfectly except the covers for the a/c lines from the compressor to each unit (one upstairs and one downstairs).  Unfortunately, the portion of the house where these cover are is facing south west. Strong winds associated with storms of the last couple of years, the covesr blew off exposing the lines.  My home owner's association required these to be covered.  Twice, I reattached the covers and twice First Call reattached them - all 4 times resulted in the covers blowing off.  This week, First Call put a much better system of covers on.  Luke and Nathan were superior in their work.  They were quiet, professional, efficient, and quick making the repairs.  The new system appears to be able to withstand whatever Mother Nature blows up.  Of course, time will confirm my suspicions.  Thanks First Call.  Each time I have dealt with this company, I have been impressed with their desire to do the right thing - advice, work, cost savings, etc.  You won't go wrong with this outstanding company.

Furnance and AC

Joe, Chester were on time 8:30am and the install was finished by 4pm. They were friendly and did a very good job of clean-up. I was extremely pleased with their work.

Furnace & AC install

May 10,2017 by David Baker
We called Fist Call for an estimate to replace our system.  Jason was here the next day and prepared a bid, that was very competitive.  We scheduled the install for the following Monday (May 8).  the crew was on time, and the project (new furnace and AC) was done by the end of the day and all worked perfectly on the initial test.  The fellows doing the install, Joe, Chester, Miguel are skilled professionals in the work they do, addressed my questions well, explained the system, etc.  The whole process went like clockwork.  We have been customers of First Call for at least 20 years.

Jaime and Harold cleaned our ducts this morning.  They were very pleasant, answered all our questions, and worked steadily while they were here. I am extremely pleased with their work and their competence. They identified a problem and Jaime explained to Harold what they needed to do to get around that issue.  My husband and I are very very happy with their work and their relational skills with customers.  Thank you!

I have been delighted with two recent service calls! On May 3, 2017,  I called about my furnace not working. The next morning, Brian arrived. He found a bad valve, which he replaced, At the same time he removed, purchased and installed new filters. He suggested that I have the ducts cleaned. On May 18, Jaime and Harold cleaned 12 ducts in my three story home. I was happy with their work ethic from cleaning to personal interaction. Jaime wrote out instructions for my benefit and pointed out a fault in house construction that needs to be repaired for effective duct action. I appreciated their care in cleaning up after their work.

Great Service

I am so pleased with the service we got. Started with the sales men Jason Brown. He came out looked at what we need for a complete new heat pump unit. Then for the scheduling Victoria was so great . We  scheduled for one date but then couldn't do it so she worked some magic and got it when needed it. Then there was the install crew Robert and his crew went above and beyond. My old heat pump was under house in crawl space they didn't mind, they were friendly made sure everthing was cleaned up. Just a great company Thank you.

Thank you!

We have been your customer for many years and have always felt that your service has been exemplary. However, your ENTIRE staff outdid themselves with our process off changing out oil heat to converting to gas. Steve Erickson has been supportive and very willing to explain, educate, and answer questions. The office staff including the accounts department were always gracious and willing to research if they did not know how to answer questions. The duct cleaning crew headed by Dustin were terrific; introducing who they were upon arrival plus taking the time to explain the whole process so there would be no surprises. And the fact they tried to reassure our dog gives them extra brownie points. The furnace/AC/water heater crew were not only kind but kept cleaning up after themselves.  
We did receive another bid from another company about the furnace conversion. Although their bid was quite a bit lower, we decided to stay with First Call because of your excellent service you have provided us in the past year. We were also thrilled to have you handle the details of plumber (who was super), electrician (stellar), and inspection. As disruptive as a change can be, your service made it so tolerable. We were also impressed that tools, equipment, and materials were on sight. Very well organized!

Fast and efficient installation

Mar 01,2017 by Betty
I would like to compliment First Call on their fast and efficient service. Our furnace quit Tuesday night, called Wednesday and Jason came out on service call the same day! We decided furnace too old to fix. Steve came out Thursday to give quote on new furnace and add air cond. He also brought space heaters. Saturday furnace was in, and Monday air. I would like to thank Jason and Steve for honest answers to all my questions. I would also like to thank Aaron, Joe and Victor for the professional installation and taking time to answer all my questions. I also appreciate the company's package pricing, available discounts, expanded warranty and price lock on future service fees for 5 years. I will definitely recommend your company to anyone who has heating or cooling needs.

Installation Crew

Jan 23,2017 by Brad & Peggy Cheney
Our old heating system had exceeded it's life expectancy and the First Call installation team of  Joe, Victor and Mike earned a FIve Star rating when they showed up in the middle of the bad weather do install the new furnace and associated heat pump.  Joe, Mike and Victor were all very professional, wearing the booties in the house, doing spec book work, and explaining the system they had installed.  The work took a day and a half in some foul weather but these guys didn't miss a beat, snow and all.  We got a great system....installed by a great crew.

High Five Star Service

Jan 16,2017 by Barbara and Tom Cooney
After six months of remodeling a basement, kitchen and mud room, we decided to have our duct work cleaned out.  Dustin, Andre and Jaime arrived on 1/16/17, braving the icy roads to do the work.  These three comprised a professional team from the time they entered our home until the time they left.  An explanation of the process was detailed and I was shown the results of the clean out afterwards.  Our two greyhounds loved the pets they got as the men moved about to do the work.   I most highly (five+ stars) recommend this team!

Clean ducts, new furnce soon.

Jan 14,2017 by Dr. James S Imhoff (Jim)

Cleaning and Repair

Dec 04,2016 by Kristin Hook
My husband and I just moved into a rental house and immediately noticed the HVAC system was affecting our breathing. We also noticed we had significant heat loss in the back of the house. Dustin and Andre from First Call showed up right on time and throughly reviewed our ductwork in the basement. They found holes from deterioration, improperly joined connections, and an open vent unconnected to the duct system. They closed off the unconnected vent and replaced and cleaned everything. All of their work made a huge difference in the air quality and heat retention in our house. I highly recommend First Call and will contact them again myself for any future issues. Thank you!

I had to have my 15 year old Mitsubishi Ductless Heat/Air unit that I had purchased from Smith Heating & Air Conditioning (now First Call) replaced, so of course I went back to them.  As always, my experience with the company, from beginning to end was exceptional.  And I can't say enough about the efficiency of the installation by Joe and Victor.  They went above and beyond in every way and left the entire area spotless.

I had a new Trane heat-pump heating and cooling system installed today and I could not be happier with the service.
Estimator Steve Erickson is a real pro and installation only two days after estimate went perfectly by Joe G., Victor, Abel and Nathan M.
My house was left in pristine shape and I couldn't be happier. 
Even though First Call is across town, I chose them because they efficiently handled service issues in the past when businesses closer could not handle the problem.
