Wow .. if there was a button higher than 5/5 this company definitely would be top of our list. Long story short, we were running on emergency heat last 6 months misdiagnosed by another company, after some research hubby picked Fujitsu as being the most technically advanced heat pump. Mike helped me by offering a contact for rebates as well as moved some appointments to provide immediate professional installation as our house was chilly, amazing workmanship. Thanks so much guys, much appreciated!! PS our dogs loved them too, pet friendly as well 🙂

We had very good service from Mike. He's busy but came at exactly the scheduled time and fixed our heat-pump. Our previous service guys were ripping us off. Mike explained what needed to be done and charged us exactly as Quoted. No surprises. He's our goto guy now.

Our furnace broke during a cold snap. Mike came out the same day, Friday afternoon, gave us an estimate, and started right away on Monday. There were some hardware issues with the new unit, and he had them replaced by the manufacturer as soon as he could, and worked hard and extra long to get everything going for us. He was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive, and seemed to really care about doing a great job and getting us out of the cold. We will continue to use his services for our property. Thanks Mike!

Mike installed a heat pump and header. Service was excellent, very efficient and cost effective compared to WESTILE. System works very well. Mike also followed up in a timely manner (same day) when my receipt was misplaced, enabling me to apply for aFederal rebate.

Questions About AC Repair?

Typical signs that your AC may require repair include: unusual noises, reduced cooling capacity, frequent cycling on and off, foul or unusual smells, and increased energy bills. If you notice any of these signs, it's best to call a professional like Friesen's Heating & Conditioning for an inspection.

While some basic maintenance tasks, like cleaning or replacing filters, can be done yourself, it's generally recommended to leave repairs to trained professionals. Incorrectly attempting to repair your AC system can lead to more significant issues, void your warranty, and potentially be unsafe.

If your AC is blowing warm air, it could be due to a few reasons such as a dirty air filter, low refrigerant levels, a malfunctioning compressor, or issues with your thermostat. It's best to have a professional diagnose and resolve the problem.

First, check your thermostat settings and ensure it's set to cool. Check if your circuit breaker has tripped and if so, reset it. Check your air filter and replace it if it's dirty. If these steps don't resolve the issue, call us at Friesen's Heating & Air Conditioning.

If your AC system is relatively new and the cost of repair is not substantial, repair may be the best option. However, if the system is more than 10-15 years old, requires frequent repairs, or the cost of a necessary repair is significant (more than 50% of the cost of a new system), it may be more cost-effective to replace the system.

AC units can leak water due to various reasons, including a clogged condensate drain line, frozen evaporator coils, or a malfunctioning condensate pump. If you notice water leaking from your unit, it's essential to call a professional to diagnose and fix the issue.

Unusual noises from your AC can indicate a problem. Banging or clanking could suggest a loose or broken part, while buzzing might signal an electrical issue. Squealing noises could point to problems with the belt or motor bearing. In all these cases, it's best to consult with an HVAC technician.

The frequency of filter changes depends on the type of filter, your AC usage, and your home's air quality (pets, dust, etc.). However, a good rule of thumb is to check your filter monthly and replace it at least every three months or when it appears dirty.

An AC unit can freeze up due to low refrigerant levels, poor airflow caused by dirty filters or blocked ducts, or a malfunctioning fan. If your unit is freezing up, it's crucial to call a professional to identify and address the issue.

Frequent cycling, also known as short cycling, can indicate an issue with your AC. This could be due to an oversized unit, a dirty or clogged filter, low refrigerant, or a malfunctioning thermostat. Frequent cycling can increase wear on your system and decrease its efficiency, so it's best to have it checked by a professional.
