Project: Install Oil Furnace / Forced Air Heating System
Great bunch of guys! Joe is a smooth salesman. But his operation is not competent or trustworthy. I paid them to install complete new HVAC system with oil furnace and oil water heater. They installed equipment that they were not trained or certified on. They selected and installed a Bosch heat pump that wouldn't work at the temperatures it needs to in New York as they said it would. That left the house freezing when it got cold outside. No one at McCool's would respond to service calls, texts, or emails. The electrostatic air filter was the wrong size and installed upside down and backwards. They didn't insulate the pipes. The evaporator coil unit leaks. Didn't install the UV light. Did not honor the service agreement. So it's costing me more to fix their work than their upfront cost. As I said, a great bunch of guys. I wonder how carefully this company was "screened". As they say "HomeAdvisor Services are provided to you on an "AS IS" basis without any warranty whatsoever, and your sole and exclusive remedy, and HomeAdvisor's sole obligation to you or any third party for any claim arising out of your use of the HomeAdvisor Services or the HomeAdvisor or apps, is that you are free to discontinue your use of the HomeAdvisor Services". Based on my experience, his five star reviewers must be either very lucky or phony.

Review by Terry / michele M. in Armonk, NY
If I could give them a ZERO rating I would. DO NOT USE THEM. I WILL BE SUING THEM. I hired this company based on the 5-star reviews on this site Work was done in mid-April 2020. The job was to remove the air handler in our attic and replace it with a new one. The cost was just under $6,000. The air handler was installed so incompetently that, a few months later we were required to have another company come in and completely remove the McCools handler and reinstall a new one properly. Here is just a short list of some of McCools screw-ups: 1. They wired the system backward - causing it to called for hot water which heated (not cooled) the air. 2. When we called McCools back to address item 1 , they failed to spot the backward wiring, and instead charged us an additional $550 for an unnecessary damper replacement. 3. Even after we had another company fix the wiring, the system still did not cool. 4. The air handler they brought to replace our old one did not fit through the opening in our attic, so they took the new machine apart and butchered it in the process. The parts were so bent and mangled that we could not even slide in the air filter b/c the channel was so mangled. 5. They gerry-riged the new handler line up with the existing duct work in our attic. Rather than using sheet metal or other suitable material, they used CARDBOARD with TIN FOIL taped on. I paid them $6,000 for cardboard and tin foil. 6. Their braze joints were sloppy and the system leaked refrigerant to such an extent that it required refilling at least 3 times in just a couple of months. 7. The air handler that I paid them $6,000 to install NEVER actually worked. Not once. It never blew cold air. Not once. 8. We had 3 separate HVAC companies come out to look at the system to try to fix it during April, May and June. All three said the system was incompetently installed and advised that it needed to be completely replaced and redone properly. All three. 9. When I approached Joe Madigan at McCools, he refused to take ownership of the shoddy work or to make it right. Instead, he claimed he is a 5-star company and accused the other companies I brought in to try to fix McCools errors of trying to deceive me by claiming the system had to be replaced. 10. But this begs the question: why was the McCool system blowing HOT rather than cold air? Why was it wired backwards? Why was the system bent and mangled beyond recognition? Why was it leaking refrigerant like a popped balloon? Why was there CARDBOARD and TIN FOIL in a system I paid $6,000 to have installed? These questions answer themselves. I cannot understand how McCools has gotten 5-star reviews. Their work warrants a 0 rating. Since removing the McCools air handler and replacing it with a new (properly installed) air handler, (at add $6k cost to me), our a/c system worked FLAWLESSLY for the entire summer. Obviously, the problem was that McCools work was incompetent. AVOID THIS COMPANY. They will screw up and then not make it right.

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.

    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
