Whole house renovation

Building Ideas installed two separate heating and air conditioning systems in our build. The work was done professionally and in a timely manner.
The project had many challenges and space constraints that Jose was able to work with and still deliver a great HVAC system.
I would definitely call on building Ideas for our next project and would highly recommend them to others.

Ductwork and Air Conditioning

Jose contacted us immediately and put together a detailed quote the next day. We had been communicating with other companies as well and had an opportunity to compare multiple quotes. Jose's was the lowest and contained the most specific information.

Once we decided to move forward with Building Ideas, the work was done within one week, and was top notch. Jose walked us through the completed project, and then asked us about our air conditioning unit.

He calmly explained to us that we could keep our old unit, but since it was 30 years old, it made sense to have everything updated to keep the system efficient and also limit costs. There was absolutely no pressure, and he left the decision to us.

Once we decided to upgrade the a/c unit, it was delivered the next day and installed. Jose was professional, communicative, informative and just plain nice. We would recommend him and Building Ideas to anyone in need of heating, a/c or ductwork.

Heating and Air conditioning Commercial and Home servive

I have had the pleasure of knowing Jose for over 15 years.
In that time we have worked together on repairs/maintenance & purchases of all my Heating and A/C requirements. From Installation to service .Day or night Jose and his work partners have always been 100% committed.

This is a top notch professional company and I am more than willing to give them 10 out of 10 on all fronts.

New Furnace

We needed a new furnace and we are really happy with the result. Jose made a really professional job, we discussed different options and he found the product that we needed and in a budget. The work was fast and well done, the crew put a new furnace in a day, and we are really pleased with the results. Now we are looking forward to hire them to upgrade our AC.

Boiler and Radiators to finished basement

I needed a heating (boiler) contractor to install new radiators while finishing my basement. Jose installed new radiators in my basement and modified the existing manifold & main runs to other radiators in the house.

The work was completed in 2015 and I have not had any issues. He offered good advice, worked well with other contractors and the quality of work and service was A+.

I have also asked him for advice on a few smaller projects and he's been great (saved me money).

I plan on using Building Ideas for future mechanical (boiler & A/C) upgrades.

Heating and Electrical installation

Jose the owner operator of Building Ideas have been doing several HVAC projects for me and some friends over the last years.
He is very proficient and responsible. He has a deep knowledge in
heating, AC systems, and also electrical and plumbing. His wide and integral expertise in different building systems is really convenient.
Nowadays is very difficult to find contractors in the field with this level of professionalism and ethic. I highly
recommend Building ideas and
Jose's team.

Several times now !!!

We've used Building Ideas to service & repair our boiler.

They explained the situation. Offered several solution options. They were respectful of our home and never left a mess or damages. The work was done well. They were punctual. If I ever had questions, they returned my phones promptly.

I will continue to use them as my Heating and A/C professionals and would absolutely recommend them.

New Furnace

Jose has done some commercial work for us. When our furnace began acting up, Jose was our obvious choice to call. Jose was honest and explained what needed to be done. While waiting for the new furnace to be delivered and installed, he even came back, on short notice, to fix the problem so we had some heat!
