My AC broke down in the last heat wave, and I called an HVAC company for service. The service technician told me that my AC fan was seized, and that all of the coolant had drained out through a leak. He also inspected my furnace, told me the heat exchangers were cracked, and red-tagged the furnace, giving me 45 days to replace it before the gas to my home would be cut off. The company subsequently quoted me $13,000 - $20,000 to replace both my AC and furnace ($20,000 - $28,000 to rent over a 15 year period). Almar was one of the companies I contacted to get a quote on the replacement of my AC and furnace. Vittorio, the owner, let me know that my AC needed a simple replacement part, as did my furnace. My AC fan was not seized, there was no leak in the coolant line, and there was no crack in my furnace's heat exchanger. In short: the other company's technician had not been honest. Vittorio replaced the necessary parts, serviced and cleaned my AC and furnace, and cleared the red tag so that my gas will remain on. The total charge was $700. I'm furious with the other company, and grateful that Almar saved me a minimum of $12,000. I've referred Almar to friends, and wouldn't hesitate to refer them to others. Above all, I appreciate Vittorio's honesty and attention to detail. Thanks!
