I scheduled Cal-West for a service call to check my air conditioner that was blowing air but not cold air. I suspected all it needed was a recharge. I decided on Cal-West after shopping other companies and deciding to keep the business "local". After some scheduling miscues that were exacerbated by the hottest week in years, the owner of the operation actually made a very late visit to accommodate my day off from work. Lisa, the receptionist/scheduler/dispatcher? was cordial, courteous, understanding and accommodating to my circumstance and the owner went out of his way to accommodate me. They restored my faith in local business doing "the right thing".

I called Cal-West to try to get a general idea on how much ductwork would cost (I thought the quote I had from another vendor seemed high). Kristi took my info, then Gary called the same day to give me an over-the-phone round number. Was about 1/3 less than my other quote so I had him take a look. Gave me a 1/2 hour notice before the visit, was nice and professional, and the low, over-the-phone quote stayed the actual quote. Very Reasonable prices. Gary said they would be able to handle some minor electrical work but on install day, the AC guys said they wouldn't do it. Would have been a big bummer had not Gary hooked me up with a qualified electrician with no mark-up to the electrician's price. Howard Powell Electric came the next morning and finished it all up. Thanks so much Gary for helping me finish the project. Kristi followed up to ensure I had great service (which I had), and now I have the contact info for a great and reasonable electrician as well. Your whole group is professional, kind, and inexpensive. I look forward to working with Cal-West again.

This company's service was available when others weren't. Courteous and considerate office staff kept us informed of appointment time; very professional technician. Best part: we now have a/c working and hopefully permanently repaired after unsuccessful try by others. Highly recommended, as witnessed by almost all reviews on this site. Would certainly call them again, but hopefully, I won't need to!

We called Cal-West based on their reputation since we haven't had our air-conditioning or heating checked out in the 11 years we have owned our home. The technician came out on the day agreed upon and (on the hottest day of the year so far) A COUPLE OF HOURS EARLIER than the time he said he would be there. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and explained everything in as much detail as I requested. He checked out our air conditioning, heating, and ductwork, offered advice, made recommendations, and was very thorough. I highly recommend Cal-West Air Conditioning to anyone in need of a dependable and professional heating/air conditioning company that provides exceptional service at a reasonable price.

We had an emergency at our house and with my wife being pregnant we really needed to get the fix resolved quickly and for a fair price. A neighbor recommended Cal-West and they got the job done rather quickly. We were really pleased and would certainly use their services again. Thank You!!

Cal-West Air Conditioning is the only company I will ever call. I have been trying to get the a/c fixed in my rental property so it is ready for my tenants who are moving in this weekend. The first company that came out spent about 10 minutes looking at my system and then told me the whole thing needed to be replaced and quoted me a price over $5000! The system is only 6 years old! The second company that came to give me a second opinion quoted me a cost for repair that was higher than the cost I was quoted to replace it! I called Cal-West based on a neighbors recommendation. Their office dispatcher was so kind and helpful and did everything she could to squeeze me into their busy schedule. The technician that came out did a thorough inspection of the system and found an electrical short. A repair that only cost me $263, and the a/c is running like new. Just in time for the new tenants to enjoy. Thanks Cal-West team for your efficiency and honesty!

I was very satisfied by the fast and efficient service I got from Cal-West Air Conditioning. Our furnace completely stopped working on us in the middle of the night. I called Cal-West the next morning and even though they had a full schedule they worked me in. The owner of the company was on my roof that evening well after dark and normal working hours. He found that our 40 year old furnace needed replacement and had it installed the very next morning. Thank you for your prompt service and making sure my family had heat for the Holidays
