Can You Recomend Someone to R&R Home HVAC? - April 12, 2013, 09:43 AM

My home A/C system is 27 yrs old and its time to replace even though it still operates. Can you recommend a reputable company to do the sale, remove, install of a full HVAC system?

Prefer you not recommend your buddy Joe. But rather an outfit that YOU PAID to do the install and were pleased all around. And if you don't mind, tell me the extent of your dealings with your recommendation.

Location is Gaithersburg, MD so must be somebody who can work in that area.

Thanks, Mark

All depends on what level of work you're looking for.
If you're in the market for an inexpensive, but licensed and bonded tech to swap your Heat Pump, charge the system and do a general cleaning and check of your air handler, etc.
Pedro @ Handyman Services: 240-460-7181

If you want an entire system redesign, gas furnace back-up linked with heat pump, zoned heat/cooling system, yada yada, Mike @ Air Temp. PM me for the number.

Call Jim Chelini at (301) 442-0999 and tell him Marc from PAI gave you his cell phone number. I use him for 90% of my work, from residential units to 3rd class steam license properties. Not the most social guy but nobody knows their stuff like this guy.

Mike on here has done a half dozen .net members houses. Including mine. He is a manager for United Air Temp. Those guys are great.

Mike's UN is escaping me at the moment.

Is this the same United Air Temp that you guys are talking about?

United Air Temp Air Conditioning & Heating, Inc Review - AIR CONDITIONING CONTRACTORS & SYSTEMS in Lorton, VA - BBB Business Review - BBB serving Metro Washington, DC and Eastern Pennsylvania

When you type "united air temp" into google, look at what it tries to autofill for the 4th word...

I'd get a quote from these guys:

Glenmont Heating & A/C Inc. Review - AIR CONDITIONING CONTRACTORS & SYSTEMS in Rockville, MD - BBB Business Review - BBB serving Metro Washington, DC and Eastern Pennsylvania

The new Carrier heat pumps with variable speed compressors are sweet.

True but then you take a look at geothermal and you're like NOPE!

All too true.

I'd have the whole house built with radiant floor heating for the winter and then each room would have its own air handler coming off a ductless mini-split system for the summer.

I went over the HVAC ratings in Wash Checkbook yesterday. Made a short list of a bunch of the better rated cos. in my area. A few of them were able to come by and give me estimates.

I'm pretty sure I'll get someone from among that group to do the job. Thanks for all the recommendations regardless.
