“I diagnosed the problem, because I took the unit apart and knew exactly what was wrong with it, because the same thing had gone wrong with my other unit, so all I did was feed the error code—look and see what was wrong with it. So, when I called them, I told them what was wrong with it. So, they didn't have a lot to do, other than come, verify what I told them, go out, get the parts, and come back and change it. There were no complaints with things like their customer service, punctuality, or cleanliness. It was quite expensive, I would have to say. I only had one experience, so I don't tend to make recommendations on one experience unfortunately. I've had a lot of air conditioning issues, so I couldn't tell you if I would recommend them; I don't have enough information.”

“Protocool installed my air conditioner six months ago. I'm not happy with them. I had a really bad experience. I just purchased—six months ago—my air conditioning, and it's already giving me some trouble. I'd give them a C. Quality of work is OK. Customer service is no good. They weren't really on time. When you call them, and my air conditioning I've only had six months, and there was something wrong, I had to pay $170-something because they went to my house and looked at it and told me something was wrong with my air conditioning, and it was not covered by the warranty. It was only six months, and I had to spend more money. I am not happy about it.”

“They were great. We had just bought a new house, and we closed, and it was basically the day we closed. The main air conditioning wasn't working, but I think I had one of your guides that had been left, and I started calling air conditioning companies and nobody could get right out. Protocool promised to come right out. The unit was broken; they said they said they could fix it, and if I would buy a new unit from them, they would take the price of the repair off of the total price of the new unit. So, I really couldn't be any happier. I'd give them an A+. I would highly recommend them.”

“Protocool showed up when they said they were going to show up. There was one thing they had to come back for, that I did had to call them back for. They were approachable. They answered the phones. I got answers, and they pretty much did what they said they were going to do—which nowadays is a step above most contractors. They don't show up when they're going to, and they don't deliver as promised. So, everything was pretty much delivered as promised. I'd give them an A. The guys who came to work were very good about cleaning up after themselves.”

Review by
11/20/2017

“They were a good company. They just did a good job. I liked overall everything. The guy, the technician, knew everything. I'm an old man. I know when people are trying to clown me. This young guy knew everything, and he fixed it fast, and the price was pretty fair. I'd been happier if the price was a little bit lower, but it was fair and they treated me right. I'd give them an A.”

“I was thinking about this just the other day. I had a great experience with them. They were professional, timely, all in one—they didn't leave anything hanging out. They completed the job start to finish, in a very short time frame. My unit went down; they had a new one installed in three days. That's with the negotiation and everything. I would grade Protocool an A+.”

Review by
11/20/2017

“Very professional; they seemed to know what they were—they obviously knew what they were doing, and were just helpful, as far as I needed to have it replaced—and just what I needed. They're on top of it. I called around and asked a lot of places, and did my homework. These guys did good. I'd give them an A. They were really good. I'd recommend them.”

Review by
11/20/2017

“I think they were very reasonable, as far as price goes, and they were honest. I'd give them an A. It took them two or three days to locate the part and then when they came initially, he didn't have the part, so they had to order it. It was a kind of to do with that. It took a few days to get the part that should've been done in a couple days.”

Review by
11/20/2017

“The owner himself came out and made sure everything was taken care of right, a very nice guy. I would grade them an A+; I would use them again. There is nothing that they did wrong—you know contractors, sometimes they have workers that are not the owners; even they were great. I would recommend them.”

Review by

“Protocool did air conditioner installation, duct work, and put in the new system, where if you have leaks in the duct system, they spray it. They maintain an A/C also. I'd give them an A+. I’ve had no issues with them.”

Review by

“We love them. We’ve actually used them in two different houses to completely redo all of the A/C systems and ducts, along with continued service. They are an A+ company.”

Review by

“I'm not happy with their service whatsoever. The technician came and the problem was all he had to do was put some silicone in a little hole because it was a faulty part. He charged me $175 to put the little piece of silicon in the tube on top of the $13 to do the inspection. He was here for no more than one hour. He took advantage of us. I'm going to put a stop on my credit card and complain about that. I would not recommend them to anyone.”

Review by
03/22/2017

“I think I was having issues with my thermostat. The young man was really nice, and they were on time. They did have to check with somebody else and come back a second time. I would say I'd give them an A for the experience.”

Review by

“They are very good. I had several estimates. Chris and Pompeo did an excellent job selling it, and it worked out fine. We are very pleased with their work. I would definitely give them an A. They're very nice people, and they always come when we have a problem. We haven’t had any, and it’s been a good experience. We’re in Miami, and they're in Broward. He did an exception to come to my house that day for the estimate, and it worked out great. I have recommended them.”

“We’re in a condominium. They replaced both of the units in our condo last year. They work with us, and they’re really good. They do air conditioning for our condominium building as well as individuals in the building. I would give them a B+ because at one point they sent a service technician here who, when he was finished, we felt that it was not done properly. We called them and the very next day they sent a more senior person and it was correctly very quickly.”

Review by
03/21/2017

“They were excellent. They were great. They really showed us, as far as the install and doing everything, they walked us through everything. The young man, I think his name was David, when he came out to do the inspection after everything was done, was really nice. He gave us some tips, as far as keeping the A/C clean and when to switch out the filters. They do an excellent job, so I’d give them an A+ for the entire experience. I would recommend them to anyone.”

Review by
03/21/2017

“They do a good job. I find them expensive, but they do a good job. In my case, I was upset, but it wasn’t really their fault. They fixed the unit, and then the next day something else failed on it. I’m more frustrated with the unit than I am with them. It wasn’t their fault, it’s just that this Trane unit that I bought has been kind of a lemon. They’re expert and they know what they’re doing. They do a good job. I give them an A for their service, overall.”

Review by
03/21/2017

“The experience was great. They were excellent. They were professional, clean, had huge smiles on their faces, did a great job, cleaned up after themselves, and were quiet. I don’t know how they did it, but they were here all day, and they never used the restroom. They followed up, and they came back. They were just excellent. The only complaint was that they were expensive. I think that has more to do with Lowe’s than them. I would definitely give them an A+. I have already recommended them.”

Review by
03/21/2017

“They take care of our air conditioning. The last service technician that was here really knew what he was doing. They call to remind me whenever service is required. Normally, I would forget until the thing stopped working. The people are courteous. I would grade the experience I had as A.”

Review by
03/21/2017

“I’ve been dealing with the company that they bought out before, so I stayed with them. I would grade my overall experience with them at about a B. I still had the issue but they came back out for it recently and everything is fine.”

Review by
03/21/2017

“My experience with them was fine, just fine. I really didn’t have any dealings with them. I had my aide here, who let them in to do the work. I never actually met anybody, but I must say the owner or the person I dealt with via email, Chris, was very professional. They did not leave a mess behind. My overall experience was absolutely an A.”

Review by

“They communicated before coming to arrange schedule and everything. The technician was very clear. Overall, it was a good experience, and I’d say they deserve an A. It was a while ago, but it was a good experience. They did work upstairs, and I wasn’t even looking at it because I work at home sometimes.”
