Yelp Testimonials

We had a great experience working with The Heating Specialist when replacing our old furnace and A/C. Our salesperson, Daniel presented us with a range of options that would best suit our needs, home size and budget. There was some issues about whether or not we could us our old A/C unit and in the end we opted for a newer energy efficient (quieter) model. They were able to schedule the installation the following week and Daniel was great following up the day before to confirm that they were still on schedule to do the work. Morgan & Chris showed up on time, laid down plastic and drop cloths from my back door down to where the furnace was which I appreciated as I have carpet and the furnace is in a finished basement. They were extremely pleasant and efficient. First explaining what they would be doing (part of the installation was to remove a vent from the chimney and reroute with new PVC pipe for more efficient air intake/out take) and letting me know along the way that everything was going well. After all was in place they walked me through all the important stuff like where the gas shut off valve is, how to use the new thermostat that was part of the package. Their clean up was spotless, couldn’t even tell they were there!! Morgan was quick to point out that since it is winter they can’t properly test the A/C but that we will get a call from the office When temps get above 65 to schedule a time to come out to fine tune it. They also arrange all the permits and will contact us to schedule the city inspection that is required. The furnace, which is a Lenox EL296V Gas, is so quiet I had to go downstairs to confirm it was on. I never realized how noisy our old one was!!! Can’t wait to try the A/C as the old unit was so noisy you could sit out on our patio if it was on.
I am very please with the service and would totally recommend them to others.

Steve from the Heating Specialist is a dream come true. He performs our bi-annual maintenance for our newly upgraded HVAC system. We invested a lot of money for this high efficiency heating and cooling system and Steve does an amazing job cleaning, diagnosing and recalibrating the equipment to ensure it’s running at top efficiency. Steve also gives us helpful suggestions on how we can care for our system between visits. This gives us piece of mind when we have extreme heat and cold weather.
We highly recommend the Heating Specialist for outstanding customer service. He is courteous, calls ahead to confirm, is always prompt and is very friendly. His thorough specialized HVAC knowledge is a true gift.

The Heating Specialist have a great team! They installed a new AC vent and kitchen exhaust fan. We will definitely be using them in the future for more AC work! They are friendly and fast workers.

I had some difficulty getting advice and starting work with a contractor to replace an aging water heater in a simple hydronic system. I received either misinformation, excessive quotes or faced a genuine lack of interest and follow-up. In the end, two companies were responsive.
In the case of the Heating Specialist, I was confident they understood my system- they claimed to have installed it for the original builder. However their quote was excessive. A fixed price quote, I could never get a clear answer on what the approximate labor hours would be and I believe I received misinformation on the scope of the job. After I objected to the lack of detail- they decided to not follow-up further.

Fortunately I eventually received two very professional quotes, and was able to successfully move forward.

Wow! I am impressed and so pleased! I can’t say enough about Steve and his work! Our 11 year old Furnance stopped working. I called several companies- Sunset who installed and maintained it said we can be out in 2 weeks, Jacobs said you can call our after hours number after we close at 5 pm and the tech maybe able to get out today for a $360 service charge, First Call said sounds like you need a new furnace and we can schedule that right away. From the time I called The Heating Specialist to having heat was less than 3 hours and at a very fair and reasonable price! I am so happy – you are my hero’s!
