Pros

  • Almost 60 years of experience
  • Has an A+ rating and accreditation from BBB
  • Offers five brands for HVAC items
  • Has three budget-friendly subscription plans

Cons

  • Their premium plan has fewer perks compared to others
  • Had incidents where clients asked for repair/installation tweaks

Since 1963, Arpi’s Industries Ltd. has been a partner of Calgarians in having comfortable room conditions for their homes. Although years alone do not mean perfect service, 59 years of experience says a lot about their commitment to the craft.

They also got accreditation and an A+ rating from Better Business Bureau (BBB). For us, this is one of the relevant indicators that a company’s service goes hand-in-hand with quality.

As for the available appliance brands, they offer only five types. Even though others have more, Arpi’s is one of the few that has Rheem, which is one of the main reasons their clients usually prefer them.

However, Arpi’s uniqueness as an HVAC provider stems from its monthly subscription plans that suit a wide range of budgets and needs. Furthermore, many clients appreciate that they have no overtime charges. 

We like their $27.99 premium Platinum Plan plan for HVAC maintenance and repair because it’s half the price of the basic subscription plans from other companies.

But here is the catch: it has lesser perks. For instance, clients only get a 15% discount instead of free repairs. Nonetheless, we still think this is a good deal since repairs rarely happen when you choose a reputable brand and do regular maintenance.

Another great thing about Arpi’s is the helpful customer service. Most customers we talked to mentioned that the staff spends time educating and advising people on properly operating their HVACs. 

Along these lines, we found that compared to others, Arpi’s cases of repairs or installation tweaks are more frequent. However, we do not think it is a grave setback since the company resolved those incidents without a sweat.

Pros

  • Has an A+ rating and accreditation from BBB
  • Membership program has numerous perks
  • Membership program includes HVAC safety level inspection
  • Has five brands for HVAC items

Cons

  • HVAC safety level inspection is only available for residential clients
  • Cases of clients receiving no response for after-service care

All HVAC contractors can guarantee to provide you or your family with a cozy home throughout the year. What makes A1 Chesney Service different, on the other hand, is they also make sure your health and safety are prioritized through their personalized services.

A1’s premium monthly subscription not only guarantees free maintenance and discounted repairs but also gives a personalized report on the safety level of your home’s heating and cooling system.

Furthermore, this monthly premium plan also includes a free inspection of your plumbing and installation of new HVAC systems should you need one.

On the downside, only residential clients can avail of this offer. Those who need A1’s services for their commercial establishments will have to opt for a specialized monthly subscription plan. 

Like Arpi’s, A1 has partnered with five, although different, brands — StratosAire, Excalibur, Honeywell, Fresh-Aire, and Lennox. 

We also did some digging on the status of their customer service. It turns out that their staff is very responsive to queries and the technicians arrive on time regardless of the weather or season.

Unfortunately, their accessibility seemed to be the opposite of their after-service care. Our research discovered that some clients who contacted them for their queries after their service got no response from the company.

Pros

  • Has an A+ rating and accreditation from BBB
  • Offers many subscription plan options
  • Premium monthly subscription has more perks than competitors’
  • Offers nine brands for HVAC items

Cons

  • The Premium monthly rate for HVAC is more expensive than others
  • Cases where clients get no reschedule response

Having options to choose from when it comes to home appliances is never a downside. So we are glad to discover that Reliance Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing has the largest selection of HVAC appliances in its league.

That is why it is great to hear that Reliance offers the flexibility to choose between its nine brands, including Goodman, Viessmann, Amana, and even foreign brands like Mitsubishi.

To make things better, they also have different selections for monthly subscription plans that can fit anyone’s budget. Still, if your coffers have wiggle room, we suggest you get their $49.99 per month premium plan.

Although it is more expensive than others’ rates, we can say that their perks, such as the labour and warranty cover and removal of annual claim limit, are worth it.

Regardless of the plan you choose for your home, you can still rely on Reliance’s quality work in HVAC installations. Their over 30 years of experience, accreditation, and an A+ rating from BBB can surely attest to it.

Now, when it comes to customer service quality, Reliance is at par with other HVAC companies. According to our surveys, Reliance understands their client’s budget and patiently discusses the HVAC installation option for their case.

But, citing from the same report, the dominant issue we spotted are the cases where clients did not receive any response for repair or service continuation rescheduling. We hope they improve to avoid further inconvenience.

4. Harmony Heating & Air Conditioning

Pros

  • Has an A+ rating and accreditation from BBB
  • Affordable monthly subscription fees
  • Has an online portfolio
  • Offers six brands for HVAC items

Cons

  • The monthly subscription fee has lesser perks than competitors
  • Services are not available on weekends

Are you looking for an HVAC contractor with one of the most affordable rates and multiple options for brands? Then, Harmony Heating & Air Conditioning might suit your preference.

With $12.99 as the base monthly fee (plus $4.99 per appliance), Harmony has one of the cheapest rates in their industry. We think this is a great deal because, for such a small price, you will be worry-free about your HVAC’s year-round condition.

However, its affordability has downsides as well. Aside from having lesser perks, your discount for the installation of new parts is only 10%.

Still, installation of new parts only happens in the worst-case scenario for your HVAC, so it would only occur in rare instances. In short, we still think Harmony’s low monthly fee is economical in the long run.

Meanwhile, they have six brands for their selections: John Wood, Trane, Daikin, VentilationDirect, Lennox, and Noritz.

As for their work quality, we think they can go head-on with others in the industry since they got an A+ rating and accreditation from BBB. 

If that is not enough, you can visit their gallery on their website to see the photos of their actual works on installing air conditioning, heating, and hot water tank units. We like this feature since it adds reassurance, especially for first-time customers.

Notably, most of the clients we talked to mentioned that the technicians are friendly and respectful of their homes. Moreover, they ensure the HVAC system functions like clockwork before they leave.

But, unlike most HVAC companies, Harmony is only available from Mondays to Fridays. So, although they can respond anytime to clients having an emergency, they cannot provide HVAC installation during certain hours.

5. Knight Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning

Pros

  • Has more than 50 years of business experience
  • Technicians can also give electrical services
  • Has an A+ rating and accreditation from BBB
  • Monthly subscription plan is affordable compared to others

Cons

  • Only offers three brands
  • Can improve their after-service response

For more than 52 years, Knight Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning have been a trusted companion of Calgarians for appliance maintenance needs for their homes and businesses. 

In addition to plumbing services like most HVAC contractors have, they are one of the few that also offer electrical services. We see this as a plus since clients can feel safer knowing their technicians can safely install HVAC electrical equipment.

But, what made Knight special compared to other HVAC companies is their monthly fee is budget-friendly. By shelling out $12.99, you can have their staff do maintenance and repair checks for your HVAC and plumbing system.

Although you can only get a 10% discount on repairs, unlike others which offer it for free, we still consider this a win. Additionally, they do not charge extra for additional appliances or utilities.

Regarding the quality of service, we think they are reliable due to their 50 years of experience and their A+ rating accreditation from BBB since 1990.

We also noted from our surveys that their clients are satisfied with their efficiency. Even with their quick and systematic process, they do not sacrifice the work quality and neatness of the work area.

However, the same research reveals that the company has difficulty giving follow-up responses for their clients needing rescheduling, repair, or other after-service care. Hopefully, the company resolves this issue to cause less inconvenience to clients.

Another drawback we found to selecting Knight Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning is their lesser brand selection. Compared to the others on the list, they only have three brands for their HVAC appliances.
