“Sales/initial visit: Experience was excellent, Sandip is very experienced and knowledgeable with 25 years in the industry and it shows. After an assessment of needs, he took the time to explain how both central air conditioner and furnace worked together and what optimal system would be. Issues for me were cooling of third floor and kitchen despite many windows and that there not be significant drop off as you went up each floor. I had not been intending to purchase a furnace, it was the fact that the blower on my furnace would not adequately support new A/C. It like the A/C was also 15 years old on its last legs and purchasing both furnace and A/C would result in significant savings rather than purchasing separately. All employees are bonded. He had a binder of letters of satisfaction from customers – spoke volumes as you often don’t see this for job well done. Again, impressive and left me with very positive impression.
Home Depot/Financing – Having Furnace King as their authorized contractor/installer spoke volumes as Home Depot does its due diligence in selecting a local installer and the service, i.e. they are very selective. They want to ensure you as a customer are completely satisfied and this is reflected in the installer they choose. Professionalism and experience of Furnace King backed this up.
1. 36 equal payments, 0% interest over 36 months on Home Depot card– Made financing easy
2. Professionalism, knowledge and expertise of Furnace King
3. Signed written Guarantee and warranty of 10 years on parts and labour (not often you see the latter) 4. Potential hydro (electricity) savings with purchase of high efficiency furnace and air conditioner. Again, very well explained.
Installation: Professional installation of air conditioner and furnace. Clean, placed drop cloths down in house and left it cleaner when they started. I did ask them to adjust blower fan so that third floor would be cool. Overall, very happy.
Initial experience: very unhappy as air conditioner did not work properly and failed to cool below 24 C. The following day, did not cool at all, house warm. Key factor I found in experience with a company is not how the company does when things go well, but rather how they respond when things go wrong. In this respect, Furnace King was excellent. Called Furnace King that the air conditioner was not cooling and they were there within 2 hours. I asked him a lot of questions on why the system wasn’t working and Mike was excellent. He quickly diagnosed that the condenser coil had frosted over and that this was a result of either low coolant and/or decreased air flow, although he suspected former. I found it hard to believe that a brand new system would not function. I assumed that once plugged in, it would automatically work. It turns out, not entirely true as it is dependent upon amount of coolant in the compressor, air flow and other settings. Yes system is brand new and compressor comes pre charged with coolant but that you need to adjust according to size and configuration of house. So yes indeed unfortunate, he did say this sometimes, although rarely, happens, as each house is different. Once condenser coil was dethawed, he added more coolant to the system as well as increase air flow of the furnace. He also helped balance system by adjusting more airflow to higher floors. As a result negligible difference between main floor and 2nd and 3rd floors. Needless to say, very happy that system is working properly.
Follow up: Superb. Sandip followed up quickly regarding questions, after install and after service call to modify/correct system. He really cares that the system is working to your satisfaction. Well done.
Overall, despite having initial difficulties with the central air conditioner, I believe it was a blessing in disguise as it allowed them to fine tune the system optimally. I would whole heartedly recommend Sandip and Furnace King as I discovered first hand they stand behind their product and work and work hard to ensure you are happy. Experienced and trained professionals who know what they are doing. My overall experience is excellent with a rating of 9/10. It would have easily been 10+ if the system had worked right out of the box. Customer Service and follow up were 10+”
So sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I want to sincerely thank you for your quick response to our need for a Trane. Your explanation of your services were thorough and I felt very confident that I made the right decision to have your product installed.
The installers the next day were also very prompt and professional and worked diligently to have the unit installed and operational with no time wasted. They were courteous and made sure that all areas were clean and tidy when they left. They also answered my questions without hesitation and that was very much appreciated. You also did the same which made it very easy for me to go ahead with the install.
Thanks very much and I want you to know that I would recommend you, Furnace King and Home Depot.”
I am extremely happy with the service from Furnace King.
As the sole owner of my home, I must say I was not familiar with all the workings of my furnace and air conditioner. The past few weeks have certainly been a learning experience for me!
From my first call for help in speaking with Rami, I felt immediate relief and trust. He assured me I would be looked after and that he wanted “his best guy” to visit and explain things to me. That’s where you came in Sandip. Again I had immediate trust and confidence in you, as soon as we met.
I had received a quote the day before from a competitor and could certainly recognize the difference when dealing with the 2 companies – not to mention your price was thousands of dollars less, for the same model.
You provided information, options and advice – all of which I was happy to receive and could then feel confident in my decisions.
Installation day went off without a hitch – Mike and John I believe their names were. They arrived on time, laid out the red carpet and never stopped until the job was done. Again they were friendly and courteous, explaining options and steps to me, to ensure I was onside.
The heat wave hit and I was ready thanks to all of you!
I have bragged to co-workers, family and friends about the exceptional service and quality I received from Furnace King. Thanks again for everything.”
“Hi, Sandip , It is not easy to find such helpful company representative as Sandip .He helped me through the process of finding the right furnace for my house and gave me professional advice for a perfect water heater suitable for My house.

“Hello Sandip, I wanted to let you know, the crew came back on Friday and did add some strapping to the side of the furnace and I have not heard the load boom after the furnace shuts off.
Thank you for setting this up!
Chris and I want to say thank you so much for all of your hard work and fabulous attention to detail during this furnace and air conditioning Installation process. You were always there right there to answer our questions and look into any issue or concern we had. A absolute pleasure to work with you Sandip and hopefully our paths cross again.”
“Just a thank you . You were very helpful, explaining the process and the options for my home.
Very happy with the install, the warranty and guarantees. My new Amanda furnace and air conditioner seems perfect for me.
Thank You Again”
“I wanted to share with you our surprise and complete satisfaction with dealing with your company. Firstly I said surprise, because your company performed all the steps you outlined in our discussions and contract. Secondly, our satisfaction, for your installation and service team are very competent and personable and completed the installation within the time frame you had specified without muss and fuss. And thirdly, this is not the first time dealing with Furnace King. Prior to all service aspects in our dealings with your company, we had received glowing reports of how good your company was, and this is the reason we chose Furnace King in the first place. I can say without reservation that you exceeded our expectations and hats off to your team, especially Mike, who is a very professional, thorough and personable man.”
“What can I say except that it’s rare in this day and age to be so completely satisfied as I am with the level of service I received from you, and all of the Furnace King team. You are true professionals in every sense of the word. It was truly a pleasure to deal with all of you.”
“The furnace is great, the installation was great (your crew was fantastic) and the moving of the furnace to its new location was planned and executed extremely well and much appreciated. I can’t say enough good things.
Your group did a fantastic job.”
“I was very impressed with the installation of our new furnace. Joe and Michael were very efficient and kept cleaning up as they moved along. They were kind enough to answer all my questions as they progressed through the instal. I was most pleased with the air intake and exhaust pipes they installed. It was a complicated run of piping through my garage and the pipes are no longer visible in my furnace room. I’ve gained a great deal of headroom around the furnace. The new unit is very quiet and compact, I look forward to seeing how it performs this winter.
This is my second furnace and one ac unit that I have purchased from Furnace King over the years and I have been happy with the service and after care I have received. As I have in the past, I will continue to recommend Furnace King to my friends and family.”
