    "Totally Unprofessional"

    The owner Jermaine Howard presented himself in a very professional manner. The installation was done reasonably. The problems started when Jermaine kept asking me for the final deposit before the project was finish, stating he needed the money to do another job. It was a very expensive project (over $13k) and we wanted to run the system for a couple of days to make sure it operated as it should. Against our better judgement, we gave the final payment. From the point on, our experience was horrible! We were told the system wasn't wired properly, and Jermaine denied any wrong doing, and had to hire another hvac company to correct the problem. We then we told that the disconnect box and exhaust from the unit weren't done up to Philadelphia electrical code standards, and this was brought to Mr. Howard's attention. He denied any wrongdoing and the problems wasn't rectified even after getting an estimate from another contractor and taking pictures of the issues in questions. Our final nightmare experience was during the winter of 12/14, with the unit still under the one year warranty, we called Mr. Howard because the units (it was a multi zoned system installed) weren't operating properly. He told us he would be out on a Tuesday at 2 pm. On Tuesday at 4 pm we called and he apologized because he was on another job and rescheduled for the following Thursday. On Thursday he didn't show up and when we called again he said he was busy doing service calls for customers who 'didn't have any heat', and our response was 'we don't have any heat' (with frigid temperatures in the teens). He stated he would come the following day. At this point, uncertain if Mr. Howard would show up at all, and concerned about pipes bursting and potential for damages, we called another hvac mechanic to services the heater. The following day Mr. Howard arrived while the unit was being serviced by the other hvac company and imediately declared 'our warranty was voided because someone else has serviced it'. Our response was we are in a house (in the process of finishing a rehab project) in below freezing temperatures, with not way of knowing when you would show up (after not showing up two times already). We gave him the courtesy of telling him we would take him to court for the cost we incurred to have the systems working as they should. He told us 'to go ahead' as he walked out the door. Our experience with Air Done Right was horrific, and cost us hundreds of dollars to fix, what Mr. Howard had guranteed was done professsionally. Mr. Howard would never be referred to anyone by us.

    "Quick Furnance Repair"

    A customer for life! My elderly parents had a recent emergency issue with their furnance. My mother called Jermaine at 10:00 AM and was advised that they would be out (the same day) between 2:00 and 4:00.
    Jermaine and team arrived earlier than anticipated and addressed the issue quickly AND inexpensively!
    My parents could not stop raving about how professional and personable Jermain is. And again, they expected to pay much much more. I am truly apreciative of his efforts as this event happened on one of the coldest days we have had yet this winter!!
    The guy is a class act...He even offered to sweep the snow for my parents!
    He has got a customer for life!
    Thanks.

    Very Professional and customer service oriented! I had them come out to clean my boiler and fix a corroded pipe on my water heater. I have an old house, so when problems arose that were due to old and faulty piping, they handled it in a calm and professional manner. It is one thing to write a review when things go smoothly, but when it doesn't, that's where the real professionalism comes in! Jermaine in particular is amazing! Thank you for your hard work and dedication!

    This guy knows his stuf!. My a/c stopped working this summer and I called ADR to schedule a service visit. I spoke with Jermaine and he asked me a few questions and suggested I have my fuses tested at Loew's. I followed his advice and sure enough that was the problem. I was impressed that he was able to troubleshoot my issue over the phone. He was polite, patient and friendly. Best of all he didn't charge me a dime. I will definitely use ADR again for my future heating or cooling needs.

BEFORE YOU HIRE
Here are some of the rules, regulations, and laws governing contractors in Pennsylvania

Does Air Done Right carry a valid contracting license?

Pennsylvania does not have any licensure or certification requirements for most construction contractors. However, on July 1, 2009, the Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act (Senate Bill 100) took effect. This law requires most home improvement contractors to register with the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office.

Air Done Right currently holds license 093007 ((Hvac Install Service Repair Heating And Air Conditioning Equipment (Central Air, Furnaces, Boilers, Refrigerators))), which was Active when we last checked.

How important is contractor licensing in Pennsylvania?

Contractors in Pennsylvania do not have to take an exam prior to registering as home improvement contractors.

Your liability risk when hiring Air Done Right

Registered home improvement contractors in Pennsylvania must show proof of general liability insurance, workers' compensation insurance is not required. It is a good idea to only hire contractors with current general liability and workers' compensation policies. Be sure to request copies of insurance certificates for each before any work begins.

Air Done Right holds a $1,000,000 insurance policy with Selective Insurance of America.

What else should I know before hiring Air Done Right

Pennsylvania has some of the lightest regulations on home improvement contractors in the US and there is no financial or criminal background check performed on contractors by the State. The Pennsylvania State Police maintain a publicly accessible database so consumers can run their own background check before making a hire if they are so inclined.

How is the BuildZoom score calculated?

The BuildZoom score is based on a number of factors including the contractor's license status, insurance status, verified work history, standing with local consumer interest groups, verified reviews from other BuildZoom users and self-reported feedback from the contractor.

Why you should hire through BuildZoom

When it comes to major construction work or even minor alterations to your home, hiring the wrong contractor could result in incomplete or defective work. You may even find yourself dealing with huge liability claims. BuildZoom does the homework for you and helps you hire the right contractor.

You should get several bids before hiring a contractor

Before hiring a contractor in Pennsylvania, be sure to get at least 3 detailed bids. Quality contractors will take the time to explain their budget proposal, and help guide you through the estimate process. Be wary of an abnormally low bid, they are not worth the risk. These underpriced projects often do not end well for the homeowner, choose a contractor you trust and can clearly communicate with.
