“They have always been very, very good. I've had different techs and they all have been spot on. I can get cheaper rates with other companies but I choose Shavitz for value and quality and always will.”

“The only problem was that the guy said I probably needed a new A/C unit and was going to charge quite a bit for the refill. I was able to find a cheaper refill and they said I definitely didn't need to get a new unit”

“I used Shavitz to replace my entire A/C system and years later to repair my boiler, which ended up needing to be replaced. They were professional and prompt in responding, but they are very expensive relative to their peers.”

Review by

“I will never use this company again. The technician was AWESOME! However, every other aspect SUCKED. I will never use this company again.”

“Charging $250 extra fees for same day repair is ridiculous. I've posted bad reviews to inform people how they take advantage of people.”

“Shavitz has had my business for 25 years and I have no plans to go elsewhere. They are professional and I suspect their prices are competitive.”

“Have kept my heating and A/C running smoothly over the years. No unnecessary repairs and very little need for necessary ones. They will try to send the technician who I request. Very satisfied.”

“Shavitz is a locally-owned business doing quality HVAC sales, installation, and maintenance. Their technicians are professional, competent, and friendly. I feel like I am doing business with people, not a corporation.”

“Shavitz did a repair on my furnace on December 23. I left town. They did a quick fix on the furnace with a busted pipe. I went on vacation, and then two days after on January 3rd, the sprinklers in my house turned on and the whole house flooded due the non-repaired furnace. They were supposed to call me for further repairs and never did. I have now $300,000 worth of loss and a bad insurance to pay for it. They were terrible and it was their fault that my house flooded.”

“Great service, great product and great price!”

Review by

“Service man replaced an expensive part and furnace still did not work. Then he checked wall thermostat and discovered the batteries had died in the thermostat. Had he checked this FIRST, we most likely would not have needed the expensive part that he replaced. I was very disappointed in that he should have checked this BEFORE replacing the expensive part on our furnace.”

Review by
09/16/2016

“The service is very expensive, but the knowledge of the technicians and the friendliness of the scheduling staff is good. The technicians left a bit of a mess and left my system without putting in a filter as I requested.”

Review by
09/16/2016

“Only suggestion I have is to travel with gas sensors/gas detectors. Shavitz does not travel use them. It would be far more helpful to ensure safety if technicians had gas sensors to ensure that their annual maintenance is performed correctly.”

Review by
09/15/2016

“As far as service goes, they are a little expensive, but worth it. I have had no issues as far as service. However, when I wanted a quote on a brand new unit, there were a few issues. The project manager who gave me a quote on a new A/C unit did not follow up with me after our initial meeting. Therefore, I ended up going with a different company because they quoted me at about half of what Shavitz quoted me! If you are to get a quote for a new unit, definitely get multiple quotes, since they were really expensive.”

“Sold me on a hard start kit for AC condenser. It started quietly at first after being off for 2 minutes. Started making the same start-up noise later. Not sure if a hard start kit is needed for a scroll compressor.”

“Shavitz was recommended to us by the person who previously owned our home. We are on a maintenance plan with them and it's been wonderful. We highly recommend Shavitz!”

“I was extremely pleased with the work done by Shavitz Heating & Cooling. I really had a very positive experience. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks.”

Review by

“We installed a very high-tech boiler, and I think this was a new system to Shavitz as well. However they spent the time to make everything work correctly and answered all questions and issues. I would definitely use them again.”

Review by
09/13/2016

“Very pleased but upset at the 1% rise in yearly maintenance. The answer was it hadn't been raised in a long time which means nothing to someone who recently starting using them. That was a huge turn off for me which is a shame because I think they do very good work. Makes it hard to recommend”

Review by
09/13/2016

“From the first service call I had, they proved to be top notch. I cannot say enough superlatives about this company. Each tech who has been to my home comes with expertise and quality service. These guys are really the best! ”

Review by
09/13/2016

“The technician came on time. He was friendly and explained the reason for his visit. Tested the air condition unit and found an item that needed to be changed. He asked my permission to change the item. He completed his inspection and cleaning the A/R unit. And planned with me for the winter visit to check the heating system.”

Review by
09/13/2016

“Overall, we are very satisfied with the work performed by Shavitz. The initial proposal differed in a few details from the work ultimately performed, but the on-site technicians explained and justified their deviations in a convincing and transparent manner. There remain some outstanding insulation issues that were not discovered until the end of the project and remained outside the scope of the original proposal. Our installation specialists were consistently courteous and professional. Our HVAC is performing much more reliably and effectively since Shavitz overhauled the system.”

Review by
09/13/2016

“I have hired Shavitz to maintain and repair an old furnace and air conditioner, and then to replace my furnace. Shavitz' technicians and estimators have all been above-average communicators. They make sure I understand my options and the scope of their work. All work has been completed on time, in budget, and the repairs they performed have lasted.”

Review by
09/13/2016

“Their techs are punctual, thorough in their inspections and honest with their evaluations of any necessary repairs and/or enhancements. Any necessary repairs are priced fairly. They are the best of those, over the years, who have serviced our heating and air conditioning systems.”
