Review by in Mclean, VA
Cost: $5,200.00
We actually ended up replacing the entire AC unit; it was 20 years old. Luis and his crew were professional, careful, respectful of our home and efficient. Luis did, as others have noted, explain the procedure and answer all questions to our satisfaction and the work was done in a timely manner as promised. Three stars for value because, according to this website, the cost was average.

I called them in the evening and they came out the same night. They did an amazing job diagnosing the issue then repairing right away. The cost of after hour service and repair was really affordable -- especially compared to some of the bigger companies (I think many homeowners can infer who I'm referencing). And they actually fixed my problem and spent the time making sure that it was really fixed.
Response by Air Efficiency Services, LLC: Thanks, Nick, for posting this review. We do try to provide professional and thorough service at an affordable price. Best wishes for no more A/C problems this summer!

Review by Dylan C. in Arlington, VA
Cost: $120.00
they were courteous, but totally misdiagnosed a problem and cost me a lot of money.
Response by Air Efficiency Services, LLC: Thank you for your comment. We are sorry that you are unhappy with the service. You complained of water leaking around the indoor A/C unit. We tested the condensate pump, which was operating normally, and freon levels, also fine. We noticed the duct work was sweaty which is not unusual, based on our experience, during weeks of high humidity; however, your duct work was exceptionally sweaty. We recommended keeping the fan on and changing the filter more often. You asked about dehumidifiers and our technician indicated that it might help. We charged only for our standard service call.

Technician was great, but the company and the bill I feel was completely unfair and unspoken until the work was completed. I have 1 property that has 2 AC units and I was charged 2 service fees, one for each unit even though that was not disclosed prior to repair and they are both at the same property. If I were hiring the technician alone I would give him a 5 star, however I would not rehire the company because I feel that was a shady billing move on their part.

Review by in Fairfax, VA
Cost: $140.00
A nice job overall. Air Efficiency Services advertised a free estimation visit on the Home Adviser site, but then ultimately charged for the first visit (which ultimately included some work). These policy nuances should be made more transparent on the website.
Response by Air Efficiency Services, LLC: We agree, apologize, and regret the impression that our policy was not transparent. This was not intentional. We do offer free estimates for new system replacement or installation; but, repairs require work to diagnose the problem. We do, of course, provide a price quote for repairs when customers already know the part to be replaced; however, most of the time customers need us to inspect the system to discover the problem. Home Advisor's site has a line to check for "free estimates" but doesn't allow for clarification so we've unchecked the box on this site. Again, we do apologize. Thank you for taking the time to post a review.

Luis Castro is a splendid guy. He explained what he was doing and offered solid suggestions. He was in and out of here in 15 minutes. I went from no freon to full freon. And this is an old unit. He did not make fun of it, but did what he could to make it work right.
Response by Air Efficiency Services, LLC: Thanks for the review, Mike, with apologies for the delay. Luis likes to explain what he's doing and why -- we appreciate that you noticed. Hopefully your system is still functioning well and you're breezing through the summer.

Luis of AES came by w/his brother and they went straight to business, diagnosing and servicing the problem. I submitted a request through Home Advisor and was contacted by Luis within 5 mins! I was pretty surprised. We scheduled a same day appt, they came by, were very friendly and showed great expertise. I will definitely use them for any future AC/HVAC issues hands down!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
