"It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Independent/Prestigious Heating & Air Conditioning.
One of my two air conditioning units stopped working. I checked the capacitor and it was fine, so I knew it must be the compressor. I contacted one of the larger HVAC companies (I won’t name them) and their first available appointment was in 5 days…so I waited. Then it took 4 days to get the estimate (after paying a $150 service call fee)…then it took 1 week for the new compressor to come in, then that compressor was supposedly faulty, etc., etc., etc.
After screwing around with this other large HVAC company for almost a month, I saw on NextDoor that someone had recommended Independent/Prestigious Heating & Air Conditioning.
At around 7pm, I texted the owner Jason Roskelley and within minutes he responded to me. I told him my situation and he had me text him a picture of the unit label, etc. He said he would call his supplier at 9am the next morning to see if they had the compressor available.
9:30am Jason called me back, told me he could pick up the compressor and come over at 1:30pm to install it. Huh? I call him at 7pm the night before and he’s installing it at 1:30pm the next day?
I can’t say enough about them. The two owners, Jason Roskelley and Ryan Burdick, personally installed it themselves. They cleaned up the mess that the previous company made and left me with a brand new compressor working perfectly.
I later learned that Jason and Ryan used to work for one of the big HVAC companies…so basically they were doing the work while their company was overcharging the customer. Using Jason and Ryan is like cutting out the middleman (although they are properly licensed, etc.). They did a perfect job at a reasonable price.
I would recommend them without reservation."
