  • Wow! One of our suppliers for Furnace Installations Cleveland has actually lowered their pricing on their 95%, Single Stage furnaces! We can now offer, for professional furnace installation in Ceveland, on a 95%, Single Stage furnace, for as low as $2,400. Obviously, this is based on size and difficulty of the installation, but would include permit, parts, labor, everything for a professional installation....

  • We get asked nearly everyday why we have to pull city permits to do a Cleveland Furnace Installation. We all know the government always wants a piece of anything that is going on, however, these are actually a good function of the government as they are trying to help prevent homeowners from getting a poor quality furnace installation. In my last blog, I asked that you take a look at the photos of...
  • We have been doing a number of new furnace installations in the Cleveland and Medina, Ohio area. Whether it is a new furnace, heat pump, boiler or air conditioning system, heating and cooling service, the primary consideration should be the quality of the installation and the quality of the company rather than the price. I realize that price is a major factor in any home project, but when it comes...
  • I wanted to let everyone know that we offer duct cleaning as part of our heating and cooling services. If you are looking for duct cleaning Cleveland, Medina, or Northeast Ohio, we are doing a great job getting those ducts "sparkling clean". We purchased a new Nikro unit and it is amazing. The cleanliness of the ducts following our whole house duct cleaning is quite impressive. I should have new photos...
  • In June, we shared that we won the "Best of Homeadvisor Award". Homeadvisor.com allows customers to return to their site after a service to give unbiased feedback on the contractors who performed the work. We are proud to say that we now have nearly 100 reviews and that all of them would recommend us to others. We work diligently everyday to exceed our customers expectations. We don't have reviews...
  • It is time to think about air conditioning installation Cleveland and air conditioning installation Medina. We are already scheduled to do several air conditioning installations and repairs in the area. With the weather changing to warmer temperatures, we will need those air conditioners ready to go in the next several weeks. We do installations of Trane, Carrier and other manufacturers for a cost...
  • It is time to get that AC Repair in Cleveland completed before the warm weather catches everyone by surprise. The forecast is for high 70's at the end of next week. So many people wait to have the AC Maintenance or AC Tune Up that they end up having to wait once the weather changes. Please schedule your Air Conditioning Tune Up this week so that my team can do a thorough Air Conditioning Maintenance...
  • If you are looking for an air conditioning installation in Cleveland, please consider Fred's Home Services. As I have told you in the past, WHO does your ac installation is probably more important that what you install or how much you pay for it. Although most companies charge relatively the same pricing (unless you are going to install a lower tier system), the installation expertise and procedures...

  • You have spent countless hours researching the right HVAC system to work perfectly to warm your home efficiently in the cold winter months and to cool it in the hot summer months. What’s more, you’ve spent thousands of dollars to purchase it and have it installed by a reputable company! After having assisted you in the installation, we at Fred’s Home Services would like to help you...
  • Due to the change in the weather in Cleveland, it was "all hands on deck" this week. I know I just wrote a week or so ago about the importance of being one of our Preventive Maintenance Agreement customers, but while I was out handling a few calls for furnace service and furnace repairs, the importance of having your heating and air conditioning maintenance completed each season was really driven home....
  • I can't believe I am writing about furnace tune-ups already, but we have received a number of "no heat" calls. The season is coming and you need to have your furnace tuned up for the winter. We will do our full inspection of your furnace to make sure that it is operating properly and ready for the first time you need to turn it on and have heat. Our technicians will also make sure that it is operating...
  • We are scheduling our Cleveland heating and cooling preventive maintenance appointments and preparing our customers for the long winter ahead. Preventive maintenance will give you the confidence that your furnace is operating at peak efficiency to ensure that you not only have heat during the cold months ahead, but also that you are not going to be wasting money on unnecessarily high gas bills. Our...
  • Many times when consulting with customers about their Cleveland furnace installations, I notice an old Aprilaire humidifier attached to their existing furnace. Many of the homeowners say that they are having problems with dry, cracking skin or worse yet they are experiencing nose bleeds. The newer fan powered humidifiers certainly will help the situation, but if you are like our family, the furnace...
  • Last week certainly forced everyone to think about either having their furnace repaired or a new furnace installation and some people had to make that decision with very little notice. I know that I have written many times about the importance of preventive maintenace on your HVAC equipment, but it was never more true than last week. We did an enormous amount of "no heat" calls and, literally, 85%...
  • When it comes time for a new furnace or air conditioning system installation, you should consider the variable-speed technology available today. A recent article in the HVAC industry magazine HVACR Business, January 2014 written by John Gibbons supports my sentiment. Quoting Mr. Gibbons, "Though variable-speed units tend to cost more than single or two stage equipment, they can operate far more efficiently...
  • On January 20th, I "blogged" trying to explain our service call and when it applies and when it doesn't. Apparently, I did a poor job of explaining myself and our company policy regarding the service call or lack thereof. We DO NOT charge a service call when a repair is needed. We simply quote the repair. If the customer has the repair completed by us, we only charge for the repair itself, not the...
  • We are running a special on our new furnace installations in the Cleveland and Medina area. If you go to our website under "coupons" and print off the coupon, you will receive $250 off a complete furnace installation. No gimmicks. Once my technician or salespeople quote the price, hand them the coupon or simply ask for the $250 off and you will get it. In fact, most of my staff will offer it without...
  • Through February, we will install a 40 gallon Bradford White, natural gas or electric hot water heater for $825 complete. That price includes city permit, disposal and haul away along with any modifications that are necessary.
  • Air Conditioning Check Ups and Air Conditioning Maintenance is critical to the performance of your system. With the approaching warm weather, it is time to schedule your air conditioning check up in Cleveland. Our website coupon for maintenance allows you to get your Cleveland Furnace and Air Conditioner checked and tuned up for only $140. If you only desire the a/c check up, we will do it for as little...
  • We get many furnace maintenance, furnace repair and heating service calls to our office regularly requesting a free service call. The number of those calls has led me to think that we need to explain our pricing philosophy in a little more detail. We do not charge a service call fee, call out fee or service charge anytime someone needs a repair. Therefore, on any furnace repair, air conditioning repair,...
  • I just went to a furnace service call for no heat. I can't believe what I saw. This installation was completely botched from the sale to the final installation. I went to a ranch home that was sold a 95%, Single stage furnace. During this Cleveland Furnace Installation, the installers decided that they would run the condensate line attached to a condensate pump in an unconditioned attic, without any...
  • I heard about the Cleveland family that was poisoned by carbon monoxide due to their furnace not venting properly. This is the very reason that I continually stress the need to have your furnace checked each year for proper operation. When the flue becomes clogged or the heat exchanger has cracks, you will get carbon monoxide spilling back into the home. And as you see with the recent news story, the...
