My 30 year old furnace quit on a cold Saturday afternoon. Since my regular guys had already quoted me a ridiculously high price for a new system, I called Barron's. David came out promptly, quoted a... fair price, and offered to come by after church to install it. It must have been a rousing sermon because by 5pm Sunday my house was nice and toasty. Thank you David and Mark for going the extra mile!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Our upstairs furnace went out on the coldest day of the year, so we called around to several businesses to find someone to come have a look. By far Barron's Heating & Air gave us the most personal... service. They came out the very same day and replaced the old unit before the kids' bedtime. I have a friend who does HVAC south of the city so I called him to run the quote by him. He agreed strongly that Barron had given us a good deal and spot-on recommendations. David Barron is extremely responsive and conscientious, and I would recommend his services to anyone.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
My first experience with Barron's was on Fathers Day and a Sunday in July 2009. We lost our AC and the house was 96 degrees inside. Most companies I called would not come or wanted to charge a large after hours fee, so I looked on Kudzu.com to find a reputable company. Barron's came and fixed my AC within hours of my call. Since then I have used them annually for repairs. This year my unit went out for good. David came out and gave us a great price and an amazing new Amana AC unit. I couldn't be more satisfied with a HVAC company. Barron's offers honesty, integrity, prompt and professional service at a great price. Look no further for your AC needs. Love these guys. Best choice I have ever made in a contractor!
I asked a coworker if he had any recommendations for repairs to a leaky water heater...he offered Barron's HVAC---a company whose services he would whole heartedly recommend. I tried Barrons and would highly recommend them. They did the repair to my water heater in a professional, cost effective way (also over a holiday weekend!). I would use their services again without hesitation.
Barron supplied a gas heating stove to us under false pretenses. It was supposed to run even if the power went out since it would be located in a place with frequent power outages and low temperatures. However, the stove can either start on battery or on wall power but cannot switch without batteries being manually installed. That was the first incompetence and/or deliberate misleading. Then they failed to supply the propane conversion kit, despite agreeing to do so, which prevented installation for a matter of weeks. We are very unhappy with them and do not recommend them at all.
REVIEW NOT FOR THIS COMPANY: The last time we sold anything requiring propane was over three years ago, and we have never sold stoves. In all our interactions with customers, we try hard to make sure we give all the details needed so that our customers can make informed choices. The last thing we want is an unhappy customer. It sounds like you had a very difficult experience...and unfortunately this review has been written for the wrong company. Please don't hesitate to give us a call, 678 691-2098. Sincerely, David Barron
This review is several months overdue and I had such a great experience, I did not want to forget to write about it. We are new homeowners and had researched on Kudzu for an HVAC repair service with a good reputation. We found Barron's and based on their solid customer reviews chose to call them for our clogged furnace drain. Sam promptly arrived and was very professional, friendly, and extremely experienced and knowledgeable. He diagnosed our problem, and had it cleaned out and repaired in about an hour. He shared a great deal of preventative maintenance that my husband and I can do on our own. Sam showed us important things on our unit in the attic and walked us around to the air compressor outside and taught us how to keep things running efficiently. As first-time homeowners, my husband and I really appreciated his enthusiasm and helpful tips. We recommend this company and will always use them for our future HVAC needs!
Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to write this review! Sam's experience and dedication show in his customer service. We are lucky to have him on our team!
After searching for 3 days and listening to all kinds of snow jobs, I found Barron's. The techs were prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and most of all honest.Showed them my problem , I had a quote within 20 minutes that was complete and fair. Technician was on time and stocked with all the parts the next day. Job was done very professionally, quickly and very clean. I will be sure to recommend them to anyone in my neighborhood. Thank you Barron's.
You're welcome! Thank you for calling us!
Before we called the Barron's HVAC LLC, we already had a couple of estimates from two different companies, but we were still reluctant to use any of them. Later we saw Barron's working at our neighbor's house and then checked them out on the kudzu.com. We read all the reviews and also David's responses to his customers' comments. We decided to try Barron's because we were convinced with their being transparent and honest. Ray Prescott gave us a concise proposal. After he evaluated our old system, he brought a booklet on HVAC products so that he could help us select from various options. We accepted his proposal because we were satisfied with their good products and reasonalbe price. The next day their technician Brandon Johnsa and his assitant took time in istalling a complete system of heating and air. I could tell that they worked hard on removing old ones and replacing new ones. The new system has been working perfectly since it installed on August 10. We are very pleased with their service.
David Barron visited my mother's house on 7/26/11, saving her sanity and bank account. His professionalism and prompt timing was a breath of fresh (cool) air! We will be return customers and refer him to everyone in Gwinnett County.
We're glad we could help! Thank you for your business.
They push parts that were not needed and had to come out twice, I had a scroll compressor that was melting off the connectors so it would not stay connected, the tech used auto terminal connectors designed for cars, which just melted off after 12 hours or so. I ended up fixing myself with the real parts to fix the problem. The compressor terminal problem is common and you are supposed to use the correct parts to fix it. These guys are a joke, please avoid.
We warranty all our parts for five years and use only good quality materials. Our track record, as you can see from all our satisfied customers, is excellent. We either do it right or don’t do it at all. I have been the only person covering Duluth in the past few weeks, and I have no recollection of adding anything to a compressor. I wonder if this review is posted to the right company. You are welcome to call us back and ask for me by name…David Barron.
It was Sunday and a holiday weekend, my a/c was not working. called, received a call back within 5 minutes, they were at my house within 1 hour, had repaired the a/c within 10 min. VERY REASONABLE PRICES. I RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY OVER MORE PROMINENT COMPANIES YOU HEAR ADVERTISED. GIVE THEM A TRY
These guys are AMAZING!!!! This was the BEST experience I've had with any type of home repair. They went the extra mile...extra few miles actually. They set the standard for great service and I highly recommend them. They saved the day and are my heros!!!
We want to thank everyone for the kind thoughts. It is very nice to feel appreciated. We definitely look forward to working with all of you in the future!
I have used Barron's twice now and had the pleasure of doing business with David both times. The first time was in February to replace an igniter on one of my furnaces. This time, it was to take a look at a possible leak in one of my A/C units. On both occassions, the experience has been wonderful. The service was quick, friendly and affordable. First of all, I was scheduled for a service call tomorrow and David showed up this afternoon. That was a welcome shock. For both visits, David never left me wondering if I was paying too much for the services I needed. I like to be an "informed consumer" so I like to see what's being done during the repairs. David answered my questions and showed me what he was doing. This is a great company to use and I would recommend Barron's to anyone needing heating and A/C service. When it's time to get a new system, Barron's will definitely be on the top of the list thanks to these experiences.
We used Barrons to install a new HVAC and were delighted with them in every way - they go the extra mile. They came back out twice to fix an issue that turned out to be a switch (not their problem and to improve the drainage which had been done incorrectly with previous system. They are prompt, friendly and knowledgable. Everyone should use them!
I have used Barrons both for service calls and to replace my entire furnace and central air. David is always unbelievably fair and honest. I called him Sunday morning when my air went out and he was there within an hour. Plus he is a very nice guy.
Its been a year now since Barron's replaced a 25 year old HVAC system in my home. They installed a system that was a great value with respect to performance, price, and warranty. I researched the market extensively before going with them and am quite satisfied. They have been quick to respond to service. I would recommend giving them a call.
No AC the first time I tried it this year. David came the next day and, after much sleuthing, found the wire the squirrel had chewed through. That made it work but my old system was on its last legs. David sent Matt to replace it. The work was done neatly and thoroughly and the price was reasonable. I trust Barron's to help me with both AC and Heat.

This dude always plays some tricks when a bad element needs to be replaced. So, you better shopping wisely and do not want to become his ATM.

Unfortunately, there are people who believe they should pay us the discount prices for supplies that they find on the internet. We buy our stock from reputable suppliers, who give us excellent prices because of the volume of our business. This means we can give you great prices PLUS warranties on parts and labor. Yes, you could buy an element more cheaply on the internet and get someone off the street to install it for you…but why would you want to?
