The HVAC Medic

General Info
Here at Quality Cheaper Heating and Air we take pride in our work, we are the only Contractor in and around our surrounding areas that do ACCA approved manual j heat load calculations. A heat load calculation is the only proper way to size equipment for a home, it takes about 6 hours to do a heat load calc. Measuring the entire house from room to room, windows, color of your roof, the direction in which the sun hits the home, insulation in walls, floors, attic, all the way down to human bodies. If you are like most people, you have hired a contractor to install a new unit and they sized it by square footage of your home. This results in greatly oversized equipment, its just a guess, and most of the time on top of that they might add a little more size "just in case"! Well bigger is not better in air conditioning. Over sized units start and stop more frequently which increases energy costs, starting, and stopping effects longevity of equipment. Long run times are better for the equipment, cheaper on your energy bills, and dehumidify better. You should also be aware that it takes about 15 minutes of run time before equipment gets to its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. Every home is different, it just makes sense that a home built in 1960 is different from a home built in 1999, even a tract home identical to the next but facing a different direction will require a different BTU(Heat) load calc. If your not getting a printout of the heat load on your home as part of the proposal find someone that knows how to do one, and ask that they are ACCA approved calcs. To drastically cut cooling costs your equipment is sized with in 15% of the heat load calculation, we will find the right equipment for you and your home. We will also check your duct system or build one from scratch, using ACCA approved manual d system design software, we will make sure that your unit is running exactly the way it is designed. Unfortunately the majority of homes have undersized ducts and the unit will not operate at its rated performance. So we take the time to look over your home, design a system based on your heat load, size your ducts properly, and then test everything before we collect payment. Because we take such pride in our work, and in you as a customer, we offer a 3 year labor warranty in addition to the equipment warranties.

They took on a job that needed to be done Asap for a medical trailer I service. He did a great job at a great price. I will use them again in the future for the Sonora area again.

The name says it all. Quality and honest service. Came out twice and charged just for 1 service call. I will use this service for all my ac and heating needs. Would definitely highly recommend.

The A/C at my store broke down during a heat wave. My landlord contacted Jacob and he showed up 3 hours earlier than estimated and fixed it less than an hour, for reasonable prices. I would definitely use his company again and highly recommend him to anyone. He was also friendly and professional.

Quality Cheaper is the company I will use for my heating and airconditioning. Jacob is very professional and has gone above and beyond what was expected. He was able to fix my air conditioner when all others said to replace the whole unit. Thanks Jacob for your hard work and for achieving past what others couldn't see.

The A/C at my rental property wasn't working so I called a local HVAC franchise. With the temp in the triple digits, they arrived two days later. They checked the system & said I needed almost $1000 in repairs. I then called Quality Cheaper Heating and Air on Fri. late afternoon and he was on the job in under two hours. After his inspection, a major part that was at first reported not working, was now working and in fact no immediate repairs were done and the system was now working fine. I was informed by Jacob though, the control board is suspect to fail. After my experience, I would highly recommend Quality Cheaper Heating and Air to anyone.

I recently engaged Quality Cheaper Heating & Air to install a HVAC system on my house. Jacob gave me the best quote, spent a great deal of time answering my questions on email and on the phone. Jacob is a very personable individual and as such it was easy to have his presence in my house for nearly four days. He does exactly what he says he will do and when he will do it. At this point, in the absence of having a real opportunity to use and enjoy the new unit, I feel that I got a quality product and good installation. Given the investment of this project and ultimately the impact on our life style this was a big deal. I sincerely feel that I made a good decision contracting with Quality Cheaper Heating & Air.

As a home inspector, I emphasize the importance of regular maintenance to your HVAC systems to extend their life. Finally I decided to practice what I preach and contacted Jacob at Quality Cheaper Heating & Air. Jacob showed up right on time, allowed me to follow him and left me impressed with his knowledge and review of our HVAC along with tips to keep system in good operating condition. Highly recommended.

Thank You Jacob! We are loving our new system! Called this company out for our 3rd and final estimate for installing a new unit. Me and my wife where thinking that we may not be able to change out our swamp cooler for central air and heat after seeing the first 2 bids, we would have just called it quits but had already scheduled with this company so we waited to see what they would say.

The owner came out to bid the job, after about 20 minutes he sat down with us and went over some options, asked us what we wanted, and in about 5 minutes wrote out a estimate. We couldnt believe it, his estimate was $6000 less than one of our bids and just over half on the other. He went over the job with us, explaining what and how he would do it, and we agreed and signed the estimate.

He did everything he said he would, started on time and finished the same day he figured he would. Went over the job with us to make sure it was to our satisfaction before collecting payment. VERY pleased with the work! It was a pleasure to have this company out. Polite, Honest, Professional! and best of all we saved a lot of money!

Our heater was not working, Quality Cheaper came out that day and had the unit up and running in no time. Jacob explained everything to me, he is very knowledgeable and respectful. We signed up for an annual maintenance plan and will be using him from now on

Our renters heater broke down ...

Our renters heater broke down on a Sunday afternoon, after trying to get a hold of a few places we called Quality Cheaper Heating and Air, Jacob answered the phone and said he could be there in an hour. He called me back later with the problem, a price to fix it, and sent me some pics on my phone so I could understand what he was talking about. We went ahead and fixed it, paid by credit card, and got an email receipt. Good business practices! I will use again

We hired Quality Cheaper Heating and Air to install a heating and air conditioning system in an existing house. His price was great and we found his quality of work to be excellent. The job was finished ahead of schedule and the house was left as clean as it was before he started the job.

We will use him again should the need arise!!!
