Checking furnace rattle

Susan (employee) called us ahead of time to advise of when Curtis should arrive. Right on time also. Curtis is a nice man and a good worker, a excellent representative of the company. We do definitely recommend this company.

Great service

Furnace intermittently quiting and blowing cold air in the house ( outside the temperature was -30c). One call in the night, an actual person answered!, and we were in the cue for the following morning. The owner came, was very professional and knowledgeable, solved our problem. Furnace fixed, happy family, and we are nice and toasty warm. Thank you!

Thank you "T" for the great review. It was my pleasure to walk you and your husband through some steps to take before booking in with us for a Service Call (heck we thought we had found the issue). So glad we could get Curt out there in a timely manor and get the heat back on for you folks. With approximately 20 years in the industry he has a lot of knowledge and often provides tech support for other technicians in the City. Curt prides himself on the level of professionalism and integrity he brings to the industry.

Stay happy and warm!!!

Sincerely,

Hot water tank replacement

I asked Curt to supply a 50 gal Rheem hot water tank I did the installation. He was nice enough to supply the drip pan, PVC and nipples so that I can do the installation myself . He also checked my work upon completion for safety.

Thanks for the review of your experience with us.

That tactic of using the threat of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning due to a cracked furnace heat exchanger to scare people out of a perfectly good furnace and into a new furnace is nothing new, that's been going on for nearly as long as furnaces have heated homes, but lately we've been running into this con game multiple times a week (vs every few months prior to the COVID-19 outbreak), and recently most of the folks that were told their furnace has a cracked heat exchanger and thus is trying to kill them while they sleep were told that by duct cleaners.

I'm not saying that duct cleaners are categorically shysters and shills, there's definitely some good ones out there that wouldn't even consider doing wrong by their clients, just saying that lately there's a lot of folks in the Calgary area being told by duct cleaners (and furnace repair people) that their furnace is a threat to the health and safety of their family and must be replaced immediately, with not only us as another heating and AC contractor finding no problems with the furnace, but also independent 3rd parties with nothing to gain from telling the homeowner there's a problem when there isn't (such as the fire department and Atco Gas) also not finding any problems with the furnace.

Furnace Repair

Had a furnace go down in one rental unit just was we were getting ready for a cold snap (of course). Called Susan at Jamison early in the morning the following day (Saturday as luck would have it) and she was in the office. Susan had a technician scheduled for that afternoon and provided me with updates. I was able to text her video and pictures of the problem and the technician was well informed when he arrived onsite. The tenant was very appreciative of the calls from Susan and the technician. The problem turned out to be a fried circuit board which had to wait until Monday. Once again, Susan was on top of the situation and when I called her at 8am, she had already found the circuit board at 7am. the technician was at the unit by 11am and the repairs were completed by noon.

We will be using Jamison for our future hvac needs. Not only is the service exceptional, the people are honest and do the work right the first time. Well done!

Furnace repair

As a homeowner I am always looking for honesty and exceptional customer service when employing contractors to help with household repairs. I have used Jamison Furnace 3 times now and because of the quality workmanship I experienced each time I would be more than happy to recommend this company to anyone who needs furnace help. Family owned and run, you can expect them to do a great job at a decent fee. They are fantastic.

Furnace Repair

The whole process was a pleasure, beginning to end. Speaking to Susan on the phone was very informative to what to expect for the service call. Had Curt come out to diagnose the problem, resorting to part replacement as a last resort. Was expecting a little upsell talk, none whatsoever. This is how a business should be run, personable and honest people.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, Don.

Nope, seldom will you hear any upsets from us; in most cases there's no value to the homeowner in being upsold on heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) items (indoor air quality improvements are about the lone exception, in my opinion) and our aim is to provide our clients with value at every turn. We're keen to help you get what you need, but not to "sell" you anything. The idea of "selling" people on things makes us feel a little slimy, and we'd rather sleep soundly at night with a clear conscience than put a couple more dollars in our pockets by selling folks things they don't need and only wanted because we convinced them they should have them.

We agree, personable and honest (and I'll include "proficient at their craft" as well) is how all businesses should operate, and it's always heartwarming to hear that the folks we've served feel we're meeting that standard.

BRANDS
We use Goodman brand equipment as our house brand for furnaces and air conditioners, and Sterling for our garage heaters, as we've found these brands to exceed our high standards for product quality, product support, and price point, thus in our eyes providing the most value for our clients. It's worth noting that while there are about 30 equipment brand names in the North American residential heating and cooling market, these 30 brands are being owned and produced by 6 corporations, creating an illusion of choice for consumers, as opposed to true choice. These days, purchasing a brand with brand recognition buys you that alone, as the major brands who earned a quality reputation over the second half of the last century have been simply coasting on that reputation for the past 20+ years, as opposed to actually living up to it.
