Celsius Air Conditioning & Heating on the map
Forest D. Woods did a really great job at fixing my air conditioning with a prompt and fast service. He has really saved me a lot of money over many years of servicing my A/C and heat. His prices are very reasonable. Thank you very much!
I called Celsius air conditioning for a upstairs replacement of my furnace and outdoor condenser and was very impressed with the owner Dean, who was way more than fair considering the other bids I received and was very pleased with not only the price but the workmanship. Great job!! Will be using them again when the downstairs system needs replacing.
As stated the response time wasnt bad. I had a technician the next day for a tune up. I was under the impression that some preventive maintenance would be done. The tech did go in the attic he said he blew the drain out cause it was clogged. From what i can tell that may have been all he did in the attic. He did not open the pannel to inspect the coil. He then went outside and hooked a computer to my outside unit. After a short time and he come in with a diagnosis of problems. He told me that i needed 3 to 4 lbs of freon at 56$ a pound. That my plenum was molded and rusty and and new evaporator coil due to a leak and a slight restriction. And my emergency drain needed replaced. All to a tune of 3000 dollars. Ok i know AC repair is expensive. So i told him let me get with my insurance. I decided to keep to myself i will get a second opinion from a close friend that is an AC tech that i trust. Now my friend will be over this weekend i surely hope at least some of the problem are true for this companie's sake. Since the tech did not take the cover off to the coil, ( i know this because it is still sealed with dirty caulk), i took the pannel off today and to my surprise it holds a nice shiny coil. No evidence of mold and very few rust spots. I see no evidence of a leak, i would assume since ive had maintenance the last 5 years that i would see a leak detect dye a previous tech would have put in. But none was seen. I decided to see parts price in the event i need to replace theaw items, like i said i was quoted 3k for goodman replacement parts. My research was done on several websites and phonecalls. Prices didnt change much. Goodman evaporator coil - 350 - 470 $ Goodman plenum kit - 300-400 $ Emergency drain pan 40 $ Now for the higher end i count $910 How does install cost $2090. Now im sure it is only a few hour job but lets go with 8 hr install that would be 261$ an hour labor. This is completely inconceivable. This company may have other good techs, but i would personally advise against using them, and will discourage any one whom ask me.
My air conditioner stopped just before a large family gathering I called Celsius told them of my predicament a nice young man named Dean came came right out and had it up and running in short order saved the day.He did not try to sell me a new unit that I did not need instead replaced a part which he had in his supply truck.THANK you Dean for being a honest repair man. I was also very surprised that my bill was so reasonable since I called him out on a Sunday morning. B.Pringle
My testimonial on their webpage before getting their bill :- "I really appreciate the prompt service folks at Celsius have provided. The appointment time was initially set as 2pm, but my wife told me the AC was fixed before noon. I am kind of disappointed that I was not able to be there to witness the repair, but words from my wife were all positive. Again, thank you for your excellent response time, and professionalism." However, the service wasn't cheap. Service call was $75, and replacing a dual-run capacitor was $238!! That is a little high for a part that costs no more than $40. And thinking that their address was so close to my house, which probably wouldn't take more than 10 minutes drive would at least help with cutting the cost, plus the work probably took about 20 minutes. Sorry Celsius, I would love to retract my testimonial on your webpage if I could, and you are definitely overcharging your customers.
