A/C Repair

I was impressed by Joe, starting with the initial telephone call, I just knew I had called the right company. Joe gave me a date and time frame immediately. On site, he just got to work assessing the problem with our A/C system; gave us a price to proceed and got to work. Our A/C was working great when he left and continues to work great. If we run into any other issues we will definitely call him again as he is a professional, friendly, no nonsense kind of guy who clearly knows his stuff. Thank you Joe!

Highly Recommended

After saving for two years to have central air in our home, we got 3 quotes. Vedder Residential was the middle quote for price, but definately was number one for service. They were extremely professional, quick, efficient, polite, and from the time of the quote to the time we got the job done, everything was easy, straightforward and there were no surprises.

New furnace and new A/C

Joe was referred to me by a tradesman who has Joe in high regard. Joe came to give us an estimate for new furnace so we could then have some A/C in our house. I appreciate Joe's super professional and knowledgeable approach. Our old furnace was 20 years old and certainly not efficient anymore. Joe offers quotes of Good, Better, and Best options. I liked that. We selected the Best Option. Times were scheduled and install of both furnace and A/C went beautifully. Joe takes great pride in his work and is both on time and well organized.I have already referred Vedder Residential!
Thank you Joe, a pleasure to get to know you.

water heater, bathroom reno

Joseph installed a new water heater for me last year but had some trouble with the venting system due to the way that it was originally installed. I had to call him back a couple of times because the pilot light kept going off and as a result, the water was not being heated. He returned promptly and redirected the venting system and it has been working ever since. Also, he recently installed a new sink and faucet in my bathroom as I wanted to update it and am very satisfied with the look and the work done. I would highly recommend him to anyone as he does not give up until the job is done right.

Installed A/C & Serviced Furnace

We had a couple of companies come and quote the job but Joseph's professional approach and knowledge put him head and shoulders above the competition. The day came for the work, he was on time, the work was completed as promised, and we could not be happier. One of my big concerns moving here was that I wouldn't find a plumber/AC service company that I liked and could trust. I found one. Look no further, this is the company that you want.

Hot Water Tank Installation

Vedder Residential replaced our furnace in November 2016 and they were the first to come to mind when we needed a new hot water tank. As last time, they were EXTREMELY fast to respond and the level of service was outstanding. We highly recommend Vedder Residential.

well pump

Joe provided professional and prompt service. We called about a noisy water pump. He scheduled a 9:30 am appointment right on time. Joe found problem to be a rusted leaking well pressure tank which caused the premature pump fault. He scheduled a convenient time to do replacements and correct the improper previous installation which had used rubber hoses. we will call Joe for any future replacements/repairs etc..

Thank you Mitch for taking the time to leave a review. The new pump and pressure tank should serve you well for a very long time. A special thank you as well for the hospitality both you and your wife showed us while we performed the work.

Service/Inspection

Joe is very knowledgeable, polite and efficient. We called for a non-urgent heating service and he was here in less than 48 hours. I'd recommend Joe for any of your heating/cooling needs.

Furnace inspection/repair and dehumidifier inspection

I contacted Joe for an inspection of my furnace (only 2 years old) as it is the fall season and also to inspect my dehumidifier which is also attached to the furnace as I had noticed a dank smell in the basement. I need to mention that Joe was Not the original installer of either product and I did have some concerns as to how the original installation was done. I am glad that I had the inspection done as I found out the following: 1) that the dehumidifier was installed incorrectly, 2) that even though my furnace was a two stage furnace, it had been set up as a one stage furnace, 3) there wasn't enough ducting from the furnace to the vents to push the air throughout the house, 4) the slope on the exhaust pipes was incorrect 5) the shutoff valve for the gas supply was completely blocked.,6) the venting pipes on the roof didn't have the right cap on one and completely missing on the other therefor allowing rain water to flow done the pipes into the furnace room 7)and my dehumidifier was completely useless the way it was set up. The
cost for the inspection was $178 including taxes, and at my request Joe gave me an estimate to fix "everything". Financially, it would have made sense to call the original installation company to come and fix "it" however my confidence was completely shaken in the original company so I hired Joe to do all of the above work. The estimate and work came in at the same price of $1633 including taxes. When I phoned Joe to request the inspection I had to leave a message however he did call me back the same day and he was on time for both appointments. He also had covers for his work boots to protect my floors. I received before and after pictures of all of the issues. I also want to mention that the caps on the roof pipes did not blow off because I have pictures of the pipes from the original installation and they were never installed. As for my dehumidifier, he cleaned the filter (which I didn't know existed) and connected it properly to the furnace. As soon as he started it up, water started running out the exit drain and within 36 hours the dank smell disappeared. I am no so happy that my wallet is lighter, however I did get quality service and repairs and I got my monies worth. I just wished that I had used him the first time and had it "done right the first time". I will use Joe again in the future and I do recommend him.

Thank you very much for leaving a review for the work we performed in your home. It's unfortunate that the situation was left in that condition by the original contractor but we were glad to be able to get everything up and running safely and efficiently.
