What People Are Saying About ACHS, Inc.!


As a retired Electrical Engineer living on a fixed income, the Carrier Comfort Series of heat pumps that you suggested for me meets and even exceeds my quality, performance, and budget needs that probably will outlast my lifetime.  I look forward to this winter when I can take full advantage of the heat pump’s capabilities.  This new system should help me save money on my electric bill as it is designed to do. Your professionalism, integrity, and generally cheerful personality sold me to make this big financial decision even after you had already temporarily fixed the old. I feel very fortunate to have met you and I would highly recommend you and your team to anyone for repairs and/or new HVAC system replacements. Thank you and your team again for your help!

My granddad taught me: find you a barber, find you a mechanic, find you a plumber and an air-conditioning repairman. I’m highly critical of customer service received from service-based businesses, especially when it comes to larger matters of home functionality. When you pay a price for a service, you expect it to be correctly completed within a reasonable time, and communication and work performed handled professionally. There is simply no better company that I’ve used than ACHS. They consistently exceed expectations – and as cliche as it may sound, you will not find a nicer bunch of folks who explain the problem, give you options, and get the job done efficiently.

James Harkins has been my HVAC Contractor for over 15 years. In that time James has done a great job on my personal air-conditioner as well as all of my clients’ homes. He is the only HVAC contractor I recommend when asked by clients or others in the building industry. He and his crews have always proven to be honest and dependable.  Thanks for all of the hard work you and your guys do, James!

Prior to using ACHS, Inc. I encountered major challenges with the construction/installation of the HVAC system fo rmy new offices including “non-constructible” ductwork configurations, errors and omissions on the return air details, modification of the roof AHU’s to accommodate a ground mounted configuration and inconsistencies regarding firewall through-penetrations that were part of the approved CD’s. I was fortunate and quite impressed that ACHS, Inc. took the problem solving approach to these challenges and was able to provide cost-effective solutions, including redesigning the air delivery and distribution system, return air and firewall sealing details which were reviewed and appoved by City Building Inspectors and the Fire Department, during site visits. I had no idea how much time and money I would have spent on resubmittals, mechanical engineering fees and delays pending responses to requests for information.  I offer my thanks to ACHS, Inc. and my recommendation to anyone considering retaining these guys to provide HVAC services. Well done.

We just wanted to say a great big THANK YOU to Jamesand ACHS!!! Our A/C unit went out in the heat of August. We called ACHS in the morning, went to pick up our granddaughter, and by 2:00pm we had a cool house again. The service was explained thoroughly, options given and discussed, and the job was done quickly. We thought the charges were very reasonable. If you want a great service experience, from a Christian family who you can trust, go to ACHS!
Thanks again!
