Heating & Cooling in My Own Home

People always ask me what I use in my own home. My first floor has the American Standard Gold 17 Heat Pump with a Variable Speed Air Handler. This system is 17 SEER and has a 2 Speed Compressor. The benefits are quieter airflow, less humidity, and fewer temperature swings than the single speed systems. This model is modestly priced for ranch homes or first floor systems.

My second floor uses the American Standard Platinum 20 Variable Speed System. This system is 20 SEER and has a true variable speed compressor matched with a communicating TAM8 Variable Speed Air Handler. I’ve also “Zoned” the bonus room over the garage so when my out of town family comes to visit they have their own control over the temperature. What a difference that made. Also, this system can be controlled by my phone. Some of the benefits of this system are less noise inside and out. I can hardly hear the outdoor unit when I’m standing right next to it. The indoor airflow is almost silent because it’s usually running at a low speed all the time. I also installed this system at my mother-in-laws home.

I also have an LG Mini Split that controls a sunroom and my third-floor office. Life just would not be the same without them. The two rooms were uninhabitable when I moved here and now my wife says the sunroom is her favorite room of the house now.

“Ellis Heating and Air replaced my system last year. I heard about them from a friend who had them install a unit in their home. They did such a fantastic job on my place that my neighbor, who is in property management, ended up getting them to install a new system for them as well. Not only did they give me the best price on a new system (around $1,500 less than the other folks I contacted off Angie’s List), they gave me a super low finance rate, and completely re-did my ductwork at no charge because they did not like the way it was originally installed by the builder.

With the savings on my energy bill (over $100/month – no joke!), the system more than pays for itself. Plus, Jarrod (Ellis) is a pleasure to work with – very professional, honest and straightforward. Jarrod was in and out the same day and did a very neat, fantastic job. When the city inspector came out, he also commented on Jarrod’s reputation for doing excellent work. I think that pretty much sums it up. Needless to say, I highly recommend Ellis Heating & Air Conditioning.” – Kathleen G.

“It’s good to find someone to take care of your HVAC system who is honest, professional and dedicated to the customer. Ellis Heating and Air Conditioning is all that and more, and I will continue to use his services! I was very impressed!”  – Mike F.

“I got a letter yesterday from PSNC, my natural gas supplier. Based on the decreased usage after installing my dual fuel system, my spread-out-over-12-months plan is going from $96/month to $5/month. I’m sure the monthly figure will go up some after I stop paying in so much, but just taking a look at thermostats I’m using about 75% less gas per month than last year this time. Isn’t that amazing?!? And interestingly the daily temp from last year to this year hasn’t varied by more than a degree, so it’s not that it’s substantially warmer this year…” – Mary A.

“I expected a response time in a week, not in 48 hours. Jarrod from Ellis Heating and Air Conditioning called and arrived minutes before his scheduled time. In a friendly professional way, he quickly diagnosed the problem and had my AC working in just a few minutes. He did a quick general check of the rest of the system as he was wrapping up. Wonderfully, the service was quick, high quality, and very fairly priced. After this initial visit, I signed up for his service plan that includes inspections and preventive maintenance twice a year. I will call Ellis Heating and Air Conditioning every time I have service needs and will recommend him to everyone I can.” – B. C.

“Ellis Heating and Air Conditioning was prompt in meeting me at the time we agreed on. His suggestions were good and the work was done on time at the agreed price. I will continue to use him for my AC service work.” -Murray W.

“Ellis Heating and Air Conditioning is very pleasant and personable. This past fall, he went out of his way to help us when our heat pump was acting up. He truly wanted to handle the repair in the least costly way for us – and he did. We have experienced no trouble with it since. To me, that proves that he is knowledgeable about his work and honest. I appreciated the fact that he took the time to explain what he was doing and the repair options we had and then was willing to call my husband and re-explain everything to him over the phone. I would recommend Jarrod’s services to anyone – and I have.” – Laura D.

“Jarrod is terrific! Being divorced for many years now, I have to depend on trustworthy, highly skilled appliance technicians. Jarrod (and my plumber) truly care about how to best serve my needs without spending any more $ than I have to. The icing on the cake is the fact that Jarrod is so personable and takes calls from me after hours! I even got to meet [his wife] Lily who is so sweet!” – Roslyn R.

“We have used Ellis Heating and Air conditioning for the past two years, getting service on both the heating and cooling portions of our gas-pack unit. Jarrod Ellis has been prompt, professional, courteous, and reasonably priced. He provided a clear explanation of the problems on both occasions, spelling out the service options complete with cost estimates and probable duration of the different ‘fixes.’ We have been very pleased with Jarrod’s service on our system and are happy to have him as our HVAC man.” – Thomas I.

“I woke up to a house that was 55 degrees (our furnace had failed during the night)…and called Jarrod at 8:30 am on Saturday. By 10:00 am….the house was warm, the furnace was fixed, and he was leaving. I was thrilled with the service and will definitely use him again for our house and our rental townhome.” – Steva M.

“At a very cold and busy time of the year, Ellis Heating and Air was able to come to my house on short notice to service my two heating units. The quality of work was great and Jarrod was very courteous. I was so satisfied with his work that I referred Jarrod to some friends who needed major work on their HVAC system. Jarrod saved them hundreds of dollars compared to the other estimates. Needless to say, my friends were also delighted.” – Phil S.

“We had been having a problem with our Air Conditioner for quite some time, but were living with it (made a lot of noise when the fan was running and woke up our kids at night). I was fed up with it and called a few other companies. Because we still had air they pushed me off until later in the week. On a last try, I called Ellis HVAC and they offered to come out that day. They fixed the problem within two hours of my call. I am the type of person, who like most, want things done within a reasonable timeframe of my call and they worked us the day I called in and fixed the problem quickly.” – Alecia W.
