Came on time. Very polite and helpful. Got the job done in a timely manner with a pleasant attitude. He also checked my CO2 detector to be sure it was still working. When at the Northampton Home he helped change a battery in the smoke alarm and recommended we install a CO2 detector. I thought that was very thoughtful. I am very pleased.
We have been very happy with Interstate! Jason fixed our issue and took great care of us. Highly recommend!
Isaac got to us not much more than 2 hours after I called, and this was after regular business hours. Got us repaired and cool air starting to blow in short order. It would’ve been a miserable night without his help! Very professional and friendly.
Super great! Super informative!👍
Jasón recommended this company and your service was excellent and appreciated
At first the tech said I needed to have freon added for $149. and also cost of a diagnosis call, $89.99. I told him I had already a diagnosis call and nothing was indicated as being needed and his office had said that there would be no charge for the diagnosis. I told him I would think on the freon. Brandon called back and said he went ahead and added nine oz. of freon and wouldn't charge for the diagnosis call. There was no charge for the service. That restored my faith in Interstate and the owners, Kai and Jamie.
Jordan did a great job

Cycled furnace on and checked operation. System is heating properly and there is no more noise coming from the inducer.
Came out to call for a system making noise and not heating properly. I checked he system over and found the noise was the inducer motor bearings weakened causing vibrations. The reason the furnace wouldn’t work was actually the ignitor not getting hot enough to ignite the gas. Checked voltage and had proper voltage to the ignitor, so the ignitor is bad. Discussed with customer about repair needed to get system operational and the repair I recommend getting done as well. Customer approved replacement of the ignitor to get system operational and would like me to look into pricing and availability of inducers motor. I replaced the ignitor, cleaned the flame sensor and checked operation of furnace. System is now heating properly.
