    I won't be using Ruben again. He came across as knowledgeable, polite calling assuring me he knew my problem and supposedly for $59.95 I was getting maintenance service. What I got was a hose drained and my thermostat turned up so the unit was pushed into running. I had to calm down and just let him go. Honestly, I could drain tubing. Now, he said the tubing needed to be rerouted for an additional $50.00, because of a slope in the line. I had that fixed by another licensed technician. Today, the unit is not coming on, why? I don't know, I'm sitting in the cold waiting for another service technician. This time I'm being selective.

    Sorry Kathy for your bad experience with your whole heating situation. I would like to remind you that since your system was just installed by the City of Dallas for free and under their warranty program that I did not want to void their warranty on your system as discussed. When you proceeded to call them and they told you that they would not come out to service your system on the weekend, I gave you a price to fix the installation defect and you declined at that time. We are certified by the manufacturer to work on their 95% condensating gas furnaces and I drained the line to get you temporary heat untill you resolved your issue with the city. Again I am sorry for your heating problem after you called another company to "fix it", they did not "fix it" and you are having the same issue again, I'm not sure what I could do for you as you wait for the 3rd company to come out and the City of Dallas to get back to you on this matter. Thanks Ruben

    The hvac unit did not get repaired . It had to be replaced as the couple of parts that were replaced led to identify more problems in the system. The quote for replacement was reasonable and the work was scheduled and completed promptly. The installation services were performed professionally and clean. Other ducts were not checked for leaks .

    Came by quickly to diagnose the issue. Charged $50 service call fee. Used a different professional to fix the issue though as his estimate was lower.

    Ruben and his team are great. I contacted him and the next morning he came out to look at our duct/ac issues. He had a crew out a day later and all issues were resolved in one day. His crew was extremely professional and I barely knew they were even there. They had all of our ductwork replaced in a day and cleaned up so well that you would never have known work had been done. Thank you Ruben Cortinas and Sons Heating and AC - we will definitely use them for any work in the future.

    Ruben arrived exactly on time and did a great job with my AC repair. He is extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything that he was doing. His quote was far less than the HVAC company I had been using for years and his quality of work was outstanding. Ruben is now my go to person for any HVAC work that I might need.

    I think Ruben, his son & his helper did a good job installing the new C H&AC for the garden rm. of my home. I was very grateful for his prompt service in coming over immediately to locate the problem & insure that we had a/c in the house, until the electrician could replace the broken switch that he discovered was the cause of the a/c outage. I think he gave me a fair price & I paid him exactly what we agreed on in advance. He told me that he put my installation before all his other work. The job took them 9- 10 hours to do the installation & then they came out a few days later to install new air ducts in the back part of the house (for a very substantial additional amt. of money which I assume was reasonable as well), & again to put in a few vents around the house. I am waiting for Ruben to "re-hang" the shelf they removed in order to install the new unit, as I've told Ruben several times I need that shelf for storage very BADLY. I like & expect workmen to leave things the way they found them & clean up really well after themselves. I was pleased with the work he did. & rate him between good & outstanding - very good

    Wow!!! this man is amazing! Let me just say that I have had horrible experiences with A/C techs in the past. Most have taken advantage of the fact that we are dying from heatstroke and have mega-charged me for repairs that have left me feeling violated and victimized. Mr. Cortinas could have told me anything and sold me everything, but this good Christian man was accommodating, polite, knowledgeable and a true gentleman. He explained the process and his techniques in such a way, that even I understood, AND adding little tips and tricks of the trade to keep my system running smoothly. He was in and out within 45 minutes and I felt guilty for the small amount he charged - I really want to sing the praises here because of my history with shyster repairmen. He told me about his sons from A&M that are in the business also - if they are anything like dad, we are in for a dynasty of quality service!! Thank you Thank you again, Mr. Cortinas - my friends and I will be calling (Please don't retire!!!) Oh, the only way this could have been any better is if he had brought dinner over with him. Hey Ruben, dinner is on me! --- Arthur H.

    After being away over the weekend, I returned late Sunday night to find my house hot and humid and my AC unit frozen and leaking water down the wall. I frantically requested quotes on Thumbtack and they immediately started pouring in. Ruben was the only provider who gave a reasonable quote and offered to come that night. I declined his offer because it was just too late and he responded by giving the much-needed advice for what to do THAT NIGHT. He was specific and genuine and this was BEFORE I requested his services. He wanted to help even if I didn't hire him! This is a man who truly has a passion for his life's work and a heart of concern for the people he serves. What more can you ask for!! He showed up early the following morning, thoroughly inspected every possible cause of my problem, and took the time to explain the things I can check for if I have problems with my AC again in the future. He welcomed directly contacting him on his cell if I need him so that we could try to fix any problems over the phone....just to save me the $60 service charge. Ruben's business card is now taped on the wall of honor in my garage next to other successes I've had with Thumbtack providers. I highly recommend anyone choose him over providers who may have a lower service charge. He'll save you money in the long run!

    My house had a garage conversion many years ago. This past summer we remodeled the room essentially splitting it into 2 rooms with a hall. The existing air conditioner vent ended up in only one of the rooms leaving the other room without any air. I received replies through Thumbtack. Ruben was the first to reply and he wanted to come see what I needed done before he quoted a price. The other company simply gave a price and the third one wanted to come see as well, but after seeing some pictures I sent he quoted a price that was significantly higher than everyone else. Ruben came by the house, he was very courteous, he looked professional, and was very friendly. His price was well within what I was willing to pay. He arrived this morning and began working. He took great care in making sure the airflow between the two rooms was the same, he cleaned up after he was finished, and the workmanship was second to none. I wanted to have him do a few more things so I asked if he would check the freon in my outside unit, he did. He could have sold me more freon but my AC didn't need any. I will recommend Ruben to anyone needing AC service and I will call him again when I need anything. He is honest, fair, and very knowledgable. Thank you Ruben!

    Ruben is just as advertised, outstanding. He said he would check out our heating system for free and give us an estimate and he did. I live far from where he's located but he still made it on time just to check it out, and would've fixed it that day but was rather late in the evening when I called. He said he would be back in the morning at a certain hour with the part it needed and he was. Ruben is very knowledgeable and trustworthy when it comes to this business. Overall great service and best pricing out there. Highly recommended!

    Ruben was able to get here the fastest the day I searched and took the time to determine what the problem was step by step. He was able to keep it so I could use system until he was able to come back with parts and sent bid that next day, even though he hadn't charged for the original visit. He's done a great job of getting my old unit in running order at a modest price and I am very pleased!

    Ruben came out today at exactly the time, he told me would be at my home. He came and listened to what I had to say what my concerns were about my A/C. He went step-by-step looking at both air conditioning units and condensers. He explained to me and showed me in a way I could understand what was going on with the units. He did not rush through anything he made me feel important and talk to me about what my expectations were for my air conditioner. Once he found the problem he explained it to me and then fixed it. Ruben has an old-school way of doing business customer first listening and being respectful not expecting you to understand how things work. I would highly recommend him to you and also my family in the future.

    I recently had the pleasure of working with Ruben Cortinas. I was faced with a dilemma when our AC unit stopped working for the upstairs. When we hired a reputable company, they tested everything, tried using a start up kit (he even showed me), and nothing worked. They then told us we needed to replace our condenser unit because the compressor was bad. After spending $125 with the other (well reviewed 5 star) company and 24hrs of stressing over a $2200 quote to replace the whole unit. Ruben (who offered to stop by for free) came by and within 5 minutes my AC unit was working. I couldn't believe it!! I felt a huge weight lifted because we didn't have to come up with $2200 and only paid $250. I've had to work with several service people for a variety of projects and repairs over the years. I've not met anyone as genuine, Ruben was very kind, courteous, honest, and knowledgeable. So If you're looking for a no BS HVAC guy who knows his stuff, you should seriously consider contacting Ruben's company. They saved us some $$ and now our family can still take our trip and I won't have to look at sad faces this weekend. Thank you again Ruben for saving the day! A+++
