Chris the HVAC Guy
Came home from work on a hot day to no AC. Chris came out the next day to try to fix it and it was determined we needed to replace the whole system. Chris sat down and went over the best option for my house in replacing the AC, furnace, and filter unit. I was given a very good price with no nonsense. Informed of NJ energy rebates, permit, and warranty process. Chris kept me informed during the whole install. Chris and his 2 guys took pride in doing the job correct and neat. This was a quality install, everything was replaced to code and buttoned up, and great clean up. Chris is a great guy and really knows his craft and as a boss he teaches and gets the same from his techs. Highly recommend this company for AC or heating needs.
I have two AC/Heat units in my home, and I have had issues with my upstairs AC almost since I moved in 10 years ago. I've had numerous heating and cooling specialists come to inspect the system - some said to replace it, some said to add coolant (it certainly did have a slow leak the past 3 years). I have had quotes to replace the AC, but with most companies, I felt like I was being conned. (I do feel this a lot with auto salesmen and heat/ac repairmen - sometimes I wish I wasn't so skeptical). Last year, another company told me that all I needed was another coolant boost, and I went with that even though I knew it wouldn't last the Summer (I could not afford to fix or replace the unit at the time). It lasted a week or so. Fast forward to last month. I met with Brian from C&C who said he could repair the leak or replace the unit. Since repairing the leak is itself expensive, and since the coolant it takes is no longer used (and is itself very expensive), I went with a unit replacement. (I also wanted a stronger unit so that I knew it would cool off on the hottest days of Summer). The price he quoted me for a 2.5 ton unit was about the same or less than other quotes I got for 2 ton units (which is what I had), and more importantly, I felt as if he was being straightforward and honest with the options he proposed. He did say a 2 ton unit was probably enough, but having had issues with my upstairs being so hot in Summer I decided to be safe with the larger unit. He said I would be good with the 2.5 ton unit. Today, Dave and a helper installed the unit as well as a new attic fan. It took just about 4 hours to complete. As far as I can tell they did a wonderful job and cleaned up the mess that replacing an AC unit creates. Excellent service, excellent company.
