Honest and capable, 3/10/2013

Jim came and consulted with me and gave me some options for issues with my AC/furnace. Due to my house not having the best floor plan for air flow, top option would be to replace the furnace with a... variable speed fan that could be left on when needed to improve airflow; however, due to being extremely constrained with finances due to other issues with the house, we decided not to do that at this time. However, Jim noticed that there was an issue with my thermostat and replaced it fairly cheaply to improve efficiency as somewhat of a "bandaid" until I can get the entire furnace replaced. I have noticed a huge difference already in both the noise level of the furnace (new thermostat controls having fan and heating starting at alternating periods whereas the old one turned on everything at once) and also in efficiency (new thermostat turns the fan on one more cycle after the heat is off to clear out the heat from the ductwork). My old furnace is on it's last leg and I really want to improve the airflow in my house, so I'm sure I'll be replacing it soon, but I was really impressed with Jim's honesty about what my options were and that he wasn't just trying to sell me on the most expensive option for a quick sell. Once I'm ready to replace the full furnace, Air Plus will definitely be at the top of my list.

KR San Diego, 10/26/2012

I was VERY impressed with Air Plus! I had appointments with 3 companies scheduled to get quotes for a new furnace and air but after meeting wtih Kim, I cancelled the other two. She started with... asking me how I use my heat and air, and guided me in choosing a system that would work for me and it was much cheaper than what I expected. Jim and his crew were fabulous-neat, polite and most important, on time. It was a pleasure to work with them. If you are looking for a new system, you found the right company. Csll 'em now!

Look no further!

Air Plus Heating & Cooling is excellent in every way. I highly recommend them. Jim and Kim are very knowledgeable about their Trane products and the requirements for buildings. They are honest, reliable, and fairly priced. Jim installed a new high efficiency furnace in my daughter’s home and upgraded the ducting and vent system. In my home, Jim repaired and made safe my one-year-old high efficiency central heating and air conditioning units that were not installed properly by another company. He took pictures of the inferior workmanship: leaking gas pipes, improperly placed ducting, inadequate air return box, incorrect wiring, short drain line, inadequate platform and safety pan. He also repaired problems with the thermostats, dipswitch, float switches, Freon, and installed a gas line shut off valve. After repair he gave me the before and after pictures for my file. We will definitely continue to use Air Plus Heating & Cooling for yearly maintenance and all other heating and cooling needs. Jan H

TRUST NO OTHER

I HIGHLY recommend Air Plus. My mother had a bad experience when a different local company installed an expensive new furnace and AC unit with lots of mistakes. Jim was one of three quotes for my job, he was very knowledgable and had a lot more information than the other companies. (No flashy slideshow!) He checked the ducting in the attic - it was rusted (other companies had said it was fine). When he took it out it was indeed VERY rusted. He fixed the vents so all the rooms heat equally. The system is PERFECT!!! Our electric bill went from $200 in the winter to $75!!! WOW!! Jim then went back to my mother's house and found the mistakes in her new system (e.g. gas leaks, wrong size AC unit for the house, ceiling vents that were actually for the wall and did not disperse heat) - he helped her fix her system too. SUCH a nice, honest, reliable person. I would trust no other and recommend them to anyone who wants the job done properly. Worth every single penny.

Great service. Estimate came in below many others and included everything. We selected Air Plus over eight other vendors. They were professional, came in to measure, scheduled the installation, had the inspector check, and everything was perfect!! Kim is great and so is Jim. They go beyond normal service!

Great Job

I had interview five contractors inlcuding Air Plus. We had an old gas furnace that was still working, but we had the problem that our second floor was between 10-12 degrees warmer than the first floor. Jim, one of the owners, was the only one of the five people that came, that spend enough time to look into a possible solution. The only that did not give me a quote on the spot, but came back a second time with a couple of options and prices. Air Plus was not the cheapest but by far the one that seems to be more proud about their work. We end up getting a Trane XV80 furnace. We are very happy how it works. The gradient of temperature between both floors has been dramatically reduced, it is now just between 1-3 degrees. I strongly recommend using them, they are serious, clean and very professional. Saul and Carla

I cannot say enough good things about Air Plus. Kim in the office was incredibly helpful and easy to work with, and Jim did an amazing job on our system. We had some major problems with our heating system, including the fact that we were getting no heat in the bottom level of our house. We had at least 5 companies come out and give us quotes, and we got a huge range of ideas, from just closing some of the vents upstairs (that company clearly had no idea) to a solution of over $30,000 to overhaul the entire system. The solution provided by Air Plus was the most comprehensive, involved the most work, and came in about $10,000 less than our highest quote. We are so grateful that we found them, and we are now very warm and cozy in our house! In addition, we also got a new high-end air conditioning unit, included for less than their competitors wanted to charge to just fix the heat. They also use Trane products, which are well know to be the best quality, and we are extremely happy with the equipment, the workmanship, and the cost.

You can't go wrong with Air Plus.

Air Plus responded promptly to our request for an estimate, gave us a very good price, and installed our new furnace promptly. It was a no hassle experience for us. Jim is very professional and pleasant to deal with. His work is excellent.

Excellent Job

Air Plus replaced both the AC and Furnace in our house. Their prices are reasonable and they include some extras that some of the other companies charge for. Kim is very knowledgeable and explains everything very well. Jim and Daniel did an excellent job on the install. Professional all the way around.

We're planning on selling our home and wanted to have our old A/C and Furnace replaced to bring all the electronic components of the home up to date. Air Plus gave us the best pricing out of 4 quotes (Trane) and we really wanted a hands on owner to do the install. The installation was done in a day (a very long day for Jim and Daniel) and everything is working well. The opening to the attic posed a problem for the size of the furnace we chose (darn those tract home builders) but Jim and Daniel were able to adjust the opening to get the furnace in so there were no surprises in having to do some minor drywall work on the opening. Space in the attic was also tight (darn those tract home builders again) but Jim and Daniel dealt with it and got the job done. After they left, we were so happy to see that they had reshaped our dryer vent with sheet metal to redirect lint away from the A/C unit coils and moved the concrete pad with the unit over away from the vent (you guessed it - the darn tract home builder had put the vent right in the middle of the outside wall right behind the A/C unit). It is refreshing to find contractors of this caliber who go the extra step for their customers. Thank you Kim, Jim and Daniel.

Outstanding

After getting estimates from 4 different companies to replace my heating furnace and relocate the unit to attic, we found Air Plus the most attractive of them all. Not only their price estimate was good, but more importantly they provided us the detail information we needed to make the appropriate decision. It was equally pleasant to see their work and the end results. They were prompt, clean, thorough, friendly, and professional at all levels. The unit was installed in just 3 business days after they first visited my house to give us their estimate (actual work completed as promised in 2 days). We are very happy with our slection and we highly recommend Air Plus to others.

Great Experience!

I don't usually take the time to write reviews, but we recently had a new furnace and A/C unit installed with AirPlus and couldn't be happier! Kim, Jim, and Daniel were wonderful to work with. We hit a few "bumps" along the road with the install of our system due to the system that was in place before (no fault of theirs), and they were more than professional, helpful, and knowledgeable in dealing with the situation. They took the time to answer any and all questions we had and as a result we felt comfortable with using their services. They were very accommodating with our schedule, were always right on time, and did not have a huge "sales pitch", which we really appreciated! We would definitely recommend AirPlus to others and will certainly use them in the future! Thank You!
