Very professional from the first call to the service. Juan was great! He called 20 minutes prior, as promised, and came... out to check why my furnace wouldn't turn on. It turned out to be a really minor issue, but he took time to check everything, make some minor adjustments, and test everything to be sure there wasn't something else going on. Answered all my questions thoroughly and offered helpful advice. I'm happy to have found a company I can trust, and know who to call next time I need more

We were very happy with Vlad who diagnosed our issues and followed up with us. And, Mike and Jair did a wonderful job... installing our new mini split system. All of them were courteous, on time, and professional! I was also very impressed with their attention to cleanliness.

In just two days I got a new Mini Split Air Conditioner/Heater System! From the beginning until the spotless ending I... had such impeccable service from Guthrie & Sons. Alerik K., Christian, and Jair M. We’re the picture of efficiency. They arrived the minute they said that they would. They bent over backwards to make sure that my experience with my installation was perfect. These men were polite, patient, and efficient.What impressed me most was their willingness to go beyond what was simply required of them. No issue was skipped with their attention to detail. How refreshing to deal with efficient knowledgeable young men. All I can say is, THANK YOU. In an unbelievably short time I went from hot to complete comfort. I wholeheartedly recommend this company and these young more

Kareem called before arriving and showed up on time. He reviewed the job site and the task to be done. When Mike, the... other installer arrived, they coordinated their work the get the job done. Another fellow arrived later to run electrical lines in the attic. When unexpected issue arose, Mike brought it to my attention and with a sheet of plywood and a 2x4 that I had on hand, they were able to make a superb repair. These guys worked 10 hours on a very hot day except for a lunch break. At the end of the day, Kareem reviewed my system’s features with me. He even took time to answer a few of my 6-year old’s questions about what they were doing.I have worked construction and the effort and professionalism these guys put forward was exemplary. These days it is refreshing to learn of and observe such professionalism. They represented Guthrie & Sons very well. I am pleased that I choose them for my A/C installation. Now if only I could find a plumber and an electrician who are as adept in their more

The highly professional and affable team that installed our Bosch multi zone ductless HVAC system did so on time and... within budget. They demonstrated skill and ingenuity in managing the inevitable problems encountered in installing three heat pump units outside and 6 air handling units in ceilings and under the floors of our 116 year old house. They exude an aura of confidence and flexibility, and are backed by a company that makes good on its more

Well, this was going great til we got to the thermostat… I had two furnaces installed and I was told one of them needed... a new thermostat. I reply to the installers “I will deal with it“, meaning I would have to deal with the extra money but go ahead and install. Well, it wasn’t taken that way and they did not do the insulation. So, my installlation for a single thermostat to get installed suddenly came to over $300. Like I said, everything went great until we got to this more

Guthrie & Sons, which we found on the BBB site, has been taking care of the furnace in our attic for several years, and... we have always been satisfied with their service, which is thorough and reasonable in price. Dave came for the first time today. Like the other Guthrie representatives, he remained pleasant and helpful, even during the struggle with our "10-ton-truck" sort of piano that has to be moved to change the filter and which always resists being put back in place by threatening to topple over.We were happy to learn, too, that Guthrie is willing to service our mini-split AC, when the need inevitably arises in a few more years, even though a different company installed more

He is reflective of what I know Guthrie & Sons represents....exceptional HVAC service. Applauds to Zack and all. Give him a nice raise! Many many thanks...Cat Swainread more

When looking for a company to install heating & air, a neighbor recommended Guthrie & Sons. Right from the start I was... impressed with the scheduling coordinator who was friendly and very knowledgeable. Steven was honest, offered the right solutions and made the process clear and understandable. When the install team came, they were ultra careful with our home and they did a great job. When there was an issue with our slate roof that precluded them walking on the tiles; the owner of the company came by to find a solution! So impressive and really shows the degree of customer care they provide. We are very happy with the service, the products offered, the quality of the team and the fair more

I spend over $10,000 with this company for my home Heating and A/C unit. They provided a written warranty of 10 year... for parts and 1 year for labor, contract good until August 2022. My A/C until quit working last week (September 13, 2021) called and scheduled a diagnostic for a week later. When they showed up they informed us the cost for the repair would be over $800 for a bad Capacitor that cost $14.95 at Amazon and that our A/C unit was out of warranty due to that it wasn’t previously serviced. I asked them for a copy in the contract where it clearly lists that the A/C needs to be serviced regularly which they could not provide. We kept all original purchase receipts and paperwork from the first day we hired them for the service, looked and searched for any written instructions on how to keep up with A/C system and found none. We are very upset Guthrie and Sons Heating and A/C clearly aren’t the right company to do business with. We feel our system was never in any way protected as Guthrie and Sons heating and A/C failed to honor any written warranty. I hope anyone searching for a A/C company reads my story and hope our situation help you determine your decision to use them. I’m not a happy customer and would never recommend them for any service.BTW I am a certified mechanic and work on automotive A/C units. They are no instructions to routinely service to A/C or heating systems on any vehicles, because they’re just isn’t. Home A/C units are built very similar to automotive they do mot require any service unless they fail or Freon leaks out. Just like your fridge or A/C wall unit. They could not provide of the routine services for home A/C unit required because there just isn't any. They are a bunch of crooks and would not recommend anyone use them.I’ll provide a photo copy of the contractread more

During the peak of the summer and in the middle of a San Diego heat wave, they were able to set an appointment at... 1-week when nobody else in San Diego could do less than 3 weeks.Zach showed up exactly on time and was obviously an expert with a wealth of knowledge and experience. He was able to get my air conditioning cooling like a champ again within an hour. He presented me with 3 options, but actually recommended the least-expensive option and advised me on some services that I would likely need in the future.I couldn't be happier, and if I ever have trouble I will call them again!!read more
