Just installed a gas line for our new gas fireplace

Ed was right on time (a great start) and did a fantastic job installing the line in our house - while he was here he even helped to fix our squeeky furnace and also did some caulking for some work that other people did and never finished properly - highly recommend him -

Nest thermostat troubleshooting/install

I called Ed on Tuesday early afternoon and he booked me for 9PM that night.
Once he got to my place, it didn't take him long to get my Nest thermostat up-and-running.
Ed's a very nice guy and seemed to know his stuff; I would highly recommend him.

Long Story
************
I purchased a new Nest thermostat on Black Friday.
Before buying it, I used the Nest online tool which verifies if the Nest thermostat is compatible with your heating/cooling unit.

Well, the problem is that my old thermostat, while digital, used batteries to power the thermostat but the Nest expects to get enough power from the heater/cooler to power the Nest.

So whenever the fan and/or heater tried to turn on, it would turn off immediately.

I called the Nest support line and after troubleshooting it with them, they offered to pay to have a technician come out and correct the issue.
I called Ed and he got my new thermostat working nicely.

He basically had to run another common wire from the heater/cooler to the thermostat which now supplies power to power the Nest.

Add NEST Thermostat and Protect Removing old EIM System

I have a NEST thermostat that needed to be installed, previous owner had a complex EIM system. Ed came by and helped me rewire my HVAC unit, removed the EIM, added my NEST in a jiffy. You can truly tell he knows his stuff when he dived in immediately to do the needful. He also helped me put in a hardwire NEST protect as requested, in addition looked at my gas fireplace. I will definitely be reaching out to Ed for future needs.

Total Pro!!

Ed was incredible! He was able to come install my Nest very quickly. He took his time taking me through how to work it and getting the app on my phone set up. He is a total gentleman. I highly recommend Ed for all your Nest and HVAC needs!

I have my nest thermostat controlling the humidity in my house as well. I think it's the best solution to get the most out of your humidifier. Thanks for the great review.

Nest Thermostat / thermostat wiring issue

I attempted to install a Nest thermostat at my parents place. Having previously installed a Nest at my own home, it is a very easy process normally. This time, I could not get the thermostat installed as expected. The Nest Support team could not solve the problem online, so they sent me to their web page recommending GTA area Nest Pro installers. One hour after I had put in the request, Ed called me back. He tried to guide me through the setup by phone and by text msg. Unfortunately, everything we tried did not work, so he promptly came out to the house to take a look. He found that the thermostat wiring was unnecessarily complicated and cleaned it up. Once this was fixed, he quickly setup and installed the Nest thermostat for my parents and gave me a couple of tips that I was not aware of on the thermostat! I highly recommend Ed and Forge Mechanical!

Don't Use Anybody Else!

I made the mistake of letting my electrician install my 2 Nest thermostats. I noticed something wasn't quite right, so I contacted Ed at Forge Mechanical, a certified Nest specialist. He was on site within a couple hours. Wow! I couldn't believe how fast he came.
He fixed the problem, and was in an out without any fuss. I was so pleased I asked him to come back and do my annual service on my furnaces. Looks like I found my HVAC specialist and I couldn't be more happier.

Nest and A/C issues

I had an A/C / Nest emergency in the middle of a heatwave (in the fall!). Not only did Ed answer his phone, he came straight to our issue in Toronto from St. Catharines only a couple of hours after our call. It was an easy seamless experience - he also texted me to give me an ETA closer to our appointment time. He arrived, was very knowledgeable, friendly, fast and efficient. In fact, he solved an issue that three other "experts" missed which is what caused our problem. I would not call or worth with anyone else - hands down. Thank you Ed for the amazing service and for finally solving our long standing issue.

ATTN: HomeStars- he should top the list of people you recommend for this service - he's not a 5-star operation - he's a 10-star!

A/C Unit Inspection

d exceeded all of our expectations - he was friendly, punctual, and flexible to what we needed to get done. We called Ed to check on some damage that was recently done by a neighbor getting their roof upgraded. Ed not only determined that the damage was superficial, he was able to check on other non-HVAC related items while he was on the roof. Before he left, he checked the status of our A/C filter and gave us a small tutorial on how to maintain our external unit. Most of all, he provided some tips on how to save a bit of money in doing some of the basic and routine maintenance items on our A/C unit. We will definitely use Ed again, and most of all refer him to our friends and neighbors. Martin

Air conditioner repair

My husband and I were so pleased with Ed's service for our furnace maintenance and Nest thermostat consultation that we wanted him to check our central air conditioner when we suspected that a leak was the reason for our sudden loss of cool air.

Ed is everything that we want in an HVAC technician: knowledgeable, reliable, prompt, honest, polite and friendly. He always takes the time to explain what is wrong, what he'll do to correct it and how to prevent issues. In our case, he respects how much we value environmental sustainability and works to helps us reduce our carbon footprint. We actually enjoy his visits!

Thanks for the great review. I also enjoy visiting. I do try my hardest to do work that will prevent my visiting too frequently.
