North Pole Air Conditioning and Heating Services
I called Lisandro about a failed compressor on a Friday, and he was extremely thorough and took time to answer all of my questions over the phone. He also gave me a reasonable estimated cost to replace our compressor. The very next business day, he sent Luis, a detail-oriented technician, over to our home to replace our compressor and to get everything working correctly. Our local Bryant stores were all out of our compressor, so Luis drove out of his way to purchase one, just so the job could be completed the same day. Luis didn't rush, like other AC techs, but instead, he took his time to make sure everything was done correctly, the first time, and he was very polite and courteous. He did an Excellent job, and he left everything better than he found it. There was a small misunderstanding about work to be performed, but Lisandro and Luis took care of it in a kind, fair, honest, and reasonable manner. Likewise, I very highly recommend North Pole Air Conditioning and Heating Services, and I will definitely continue to use their services for our home, investment real estate, and business needs, and I will refer them to my family and friends in and around Central Florida. In the days of franchises and large companies who care more about their bottom dollar than their customer, it's a blessing to find small business owners who truly care about their customers, and who are honest, fair, and trustworthy, so save yourself some time calling one company after another, and make one call to North Pole AC & Heating to have an Awesome company who you can trust to take care of the cooling and heating needs for the next 20-30+ years for your family and business.Thank you Lisandro and Luis!

Sunshine Heating & Air Conditioning Inc
I feel very confident recommending Sunshine. I trust that when they are performing an installation or providing a service call, that the job is going to be done correctly. There are few other companies of any kind that I have that level of trust and confidence in. I have had 5 A/C units installed and 10 A/C units serviced by Sunshine over the years that I’ve known them, the latest being installed last week. I never worry about the work being performed being anything but the best. I think the excellent work has a lot to do with the quality of the individuals involved and the company they work for. Jamie and Vince, and Jason with the latest installation, have installed the A/C systems and, when maintenance is scheduled or service is needed, Shawn and Ted always deliver. This is all made easy with a call to Renee, who works with me to schedule and coordinate everything, not always an easy task when dealing with my schedule. I have known Wes, an owner, since the very first installation. He has worked with me to install A/C systems that aren’t always easy to do and each has gone well: as designed, efficient, on schedule and always as priced. Together, these individuals provide a service that you can trust.

Steve Johnson's Painting Service
Mr. Johnson is a true professional. When a company or a person is going to provide a service, it is impossible to evaluate the work before hand, as can be done with a product before the purchase. Even favorable recommendations for a service cannot be 100% reliable because one can never be certain of the source nor the motivation behind the comment.In my case, working with Mr. Steve Johnson, I focused on asking the right questions about painting my house and listened intently for the promises that were being made within his answers. In a service, all we have is the promise before the plans are executed. After I hired Steve all I could do is cross my fingers and hope all would turn out as expected. The results were extraordinary and flawless with the house looking spectacular! This accomplishment did not come without problems. Initially, we had some color conflicts with the paint manufacturer which Steve handled gracefully and reassured us that the end result would meet our demands. In fact, his promise was that we would be 100% satisfied and that we would determine what 100% looked like - you can't get better than Steve Johnson Painting.…More

Applied Painting & Home Maintenance
Thanks so much guys! It was a pleasure working with you. Your home turn aout absolutely beautiful!! We look forward to hearing from you again. Bobby Wright was not our only quote, but he was the ONLY one who told us what to look for and what to listen for when interviewing other contractors to paint our home. He explained hand painting vs. 'spraying'. He explained how the home would be sealed prior to paint. He quoted the time required, and exactly how much paint (Sherwin Williams) he would need. We did interview other paint contractors after visiting with Bobby, but at the end of the day, we knew that Bobby was exactly what our home needed. Not only did he paint the exterior in exactly the manner he quoted; we discovered that he has an artist's hand which came to light after he finished the exterior. Our 51+ home came to life! We thereafter contracted with him to also paint the 8 rooms we were simultaneously renovating. We relied on him to help us finalize our color choices (3 in each room), and he applied the color like a master. We heartily recommend Bobby Wright to those who want a professional, fair, honest and gifted painter.

Island Air System Inc
I first contacted Island Air System about a year ago to fix my old Rheem central air unit. Sure enough, there was a coolant leak and possible compressor damage. Quoted me on a complete replacement, vents, grills, new copper pipes, new drainage, air handler, wireless thermostat and condenser. At the time, despite the INCREDIBLY low price he gave me, I did not have the funds. Fast forward to today, I kept Island Air System's paperwork, called them up and they remembered me. They came out and gave me the almost exact same quote, didn't even have it written down originally. Within a week, they had the units, the permit and began work. When the work was completed, they did a thorough inspection of the units to make sure it was working to specifications. The air was turned down to 74 last night and for the first time ever, the entire house was comfortable! I cannot stress enough, before you call anyone else, you have to call this company. I know for a fact, they will give you the most bang for your buck!

Gary Munson Heating & A/C
I recently used Gary Munson Heating & AC to replace my old AC system.Since my unit was unrepairable, I called several places at random to compare their advice and their prices. I chose to use Gary Munson strictly based on my initial contact with his son A.J. He spent time answering all my questions about different brands and units, and was very knowledgeable, helpful and courteous. He did not rush me and came out that very day to do an evaluation and give me an estimate. I was satisfied with the price, so decided to use them solely based on my initial meeting with A.J. They came out the following day to replace my inside and outside unit and did an outstanding job. Their technicians were efficient, experienced, friendly and overall fantastic. In 6 hours I was up and running again and haven't had a single problem with the new unit. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for an honest, reasonably priced and caring contractor.

Sunshine Heating & Air Conditioning Inc
I started using Sunshine Air in approximately 2005 and was always very happy with the service. In 2009, we expanded our house and had to have the outdoor unit replaced (which Sunshine originally installed) to accommodate the additional load. Our contractor used a different A/C company. I was not very happy with them at installation. I continued using them throughout the duration of the labor warranty, and continued to not be too impressed with their service. As soon as my labor warranty expired, I switched back to Sunshine Air and have been very happy ever since. In particular, I'd like to note that I've had Shawn as the repair technician at our house addressing two unfortunate issues we've had with our unit this summer. Shawn is an excellent employee. He's prompt, honest, easy to talk to, and provides good technical service. He is a good example of why we continue to be happy with Sunshine's services.

Sunshine Heating & Air Conditioning Inc
You can not go wrong using this company. I would give this company 100 stars if I could . And a A++++++++ if this site would let me We have been using Sunshine Heating and Air for over 25 years. They are fast, honest and they back up their work. We have never had a problem with them. From the call to the office till when the service man leaves. They answer all your questions and they explain step by step what they are doing. When they leave you will know that the work they have done is done perfect and their prices are low and will fit your budget. And they give people over 60 a 10% discount. Now what company now day offers anyone a discount for work done? Do not take my word just call them and I will bet you from the moment the phone is answered till you hang you will be so impressed that you will not even think of calling any other company.
Tips & Advices
You can keep your air conditioner running efficiently with some preventative care measures. Shut off the power to your AC before cleaning it or performing any of these tasks:  clean your filter at least twice a year; remove leaves and twigs from cages; clean the fins with a garden hose or special spray, then use a butter knife to straighten any that are crooked; keep your yard clean so the fins won't get blocked; cover the unit up for winter; and make sure it's level or you run the risk of damaging the inner workings of the unit.
To clean your air conditioner drain, first shut off the power to your unit at both the thermostat and the breaker. Then remove the drain pan. If the pan is full of water, soak up the liquid with a few towels or rags or use a wet vacuum. You can use a solution of water and distilled vinegar, or substitute peroxide for the vinegar, to clean out the drain pipe. Let the pipe sit for a while in the solution and then put all the parts back in place. Once you start using your air conditioner on a regular basis, check it periodically to ensure condensation isn't building up.
If you happen to live in a hot and humid area of the country, drainage problems can occur with your unit since moisture can trap itself inside the system. Routine maintenance can cut down on drainage issues by cleaning out any mold or algae from blocking the drain. If you notice moldy smells whenever you turn the thermostat down, check on your system.
If you notice your system is acting inconsistently, the sensor is most likely out of place. Turn off the unit and reach behind its control panel while carefully bending the sensor back into place near the evaporative coil.
Find out where the noises are coming from. A banging or clanking sound could be due to a loose part. If you hear a hissing sound, it's most likely because of a refrigerant leak and you should contact an HVAC technician as soon as possible.
