We have recently moved into an executive condo. The company that installed our air, HRV, air cleaner etc. was unable to determine various issues we were having. Owen, the owner, came and within minutes saw various issues we had and fixed them or in one case gave us a letter that advised the supplier that our equipment was faulty, and that escalated a replacement the next day. During install the builder's contractor had damaged the air conditioner, forgot to hook up the air cleaner which we installed for my lung issues. They also had two hoses that should have been in loops done in triangles causing all kinds of noise issues and leaking of water in our laundry room. This guy knows what he is doing. He is extremely careful in your home to protect things and not damage your floors etc. He is prompt coming to see your issue when you call, usually the same day if it is urgent. His professionalism is amazing.
I must tell you I first got to know Owen in our home before we sold. He was then working for a company near Ottawa and decided to go on his own. We had issues with another company at that time, and started using the company he worked for. In the end, our file read "Owen only". That's how good he was. When we sole our home, the inspector that came said in the approx 40 years he had done these inspections, he had never seen a used furnace as clean as ours. He even called me to go and see the inside and stated "it looks like new". I always knew he did a great job but was a bit blown away by that comment. Luckily he is still in the Ottawa area and owns Wambolt Heating & Air Conditioning. This is a very strong personal recommendation from years of amazing service and expertise from this gentleman. Give him a try and you'll never go back to another company. Even in our new condo, people have seen how he did our BBQ hookup and had their own issues with the builders' contractor and have used him for their new hookups and to inspect and resolve issues for them. I truly hope that you understand that this guy is one in a million. EXCELLENT!!!
Late August I got some quotes for furnace replacement and new central air install. Owen from Wamboldt was the only one to actually take room and window size measurements to have software ensure that the right size of equipment would be used. Owen would also be doing the install, and I have to say it is nice to be able to communicate with the person at sales time who is actually going to be doing the work. The quote came in very reasonable compared to the others. On install day, Owen and Matt showed up to do the work. Nice guys, very hardworking, easy to talk to. It blew my mind that they were able to do it all in one day. Owen came back a couple of weeks later to make static pressure measurements and deal with a couple of trivial issues. I love the fact that the new electronic thermostat is integrated with the Rheem system and gives me operating telemetry in real time such as fan air cubic feet per minute and fan rpm, total static pressure, duct air return temp, and diagnostic information. My A/C won't be operational until the spring but I don't anticipate any problems.
We had utilized Owen's services to move and re-route our A/C this summer and asked if he would take a look at our furnace humidifier. He did and as we suspected, needed replacing. Owen prepared an estimate for us and we scheduled the work of October.
Once the work was done and Owen invoiced us, we noticed that the invoice cost was lower than the estimate provided. Upon inquiring why the lower price as the original price was very good, Owen said that the work took less time that he anticipated so that was why the lower total.
We would not have even noticed this at all. this truly speaks to Owen's standards and ethical practice. We highly recommend him.
Owen came over to relocate our furnace and AC. I could not be more amazed at the quality of work. Not only did he perform a heat loss calculation, he made sure my pipes and ducts were sized correctly (no other contractor did this and tried to sell me a bigger furnace than was necessary). What was most impressive was how knowledgeable he was. Wamboldt heating and Air conditioning was by far the best heating contractor I’ve ever dealt with and will have no one else take care of my HVAC equipment. 10/10 would recommend.
We have an AC unit that was installed about 3 years ago by a different company. They came back several times and were never able to get it to work properly. It would run, but stop cooling. A second contactor also made an attempt to repair it last year but was unsuccessful. Both suggested they could sell us a new unit to resolve the problem.
Owen looked it over an immediately recognized the problem, which was actually fairly minor. Even after fixing it, he continued to test to make sure the problem was actually solved. He was very thorough and knowledgeable. Coupled with being courteous and clearly concerned with doing a great job makes him a cut above anyone else!
Very professional and personal service. Owen is knowledgeable and takes the time to answer any questions you may have to ensure you are comfortable with your purchase.
His first question when I asked, “what options do I have for where it will can be installed?” was, “tell me where you’d ideally like to see it”, and then he made it happen, and it wasn’t easy!
Respectful of your property and with no mess left behind, thank you Owen!
Owen was a lifesaver. Bought an old home with a pool heater that appears not to have been working for years. He systemically repaired multiple components. He was through and efficient, saving me money avoiding an entire replacement.
Owen did an amazing job, he came in with a great price and did quality work, not only are we saving money with the new furnace but it's also super quiet which is always a plus, if you are in the market for a new furnace you wont find a better company than Wamboldt Heating and Air Conditioning
We were referred to Owen of Wamboldt Heating and Air Conditioning and contacted him to set up a time to meet and discuss options for a new replacement hot water tank. He was very accommodating and met us the next day and from the day we met until the day he completed the job, he was always polite, professional and very personable. He is so knowledgeable in his work and gave us recommendations and options based on what we required. He answered all of our questions and provided us with some quotes that evening. He did an excellent job with the removal of the tank and installation of the new one. He even took the time to leave the old tank in our garage so that it was easily accessible for the pickup. He left the work area clean and the tank working perfectly. He followed-up with us to ensure everything was to our liking and that the water was heated up nicely. He also took the time to explain the warranty and let us know that he’s always available if we need anything at all.
Owen really cares about his work and takes pride in what he does and above all he cares that his customers are happy with the work and services he provides. We are so happy to be able to write a review that other potential customers can see because we are so impressed by his honesty, reliability and the quality of the work and service he provides. He is a super nice person and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to hire him and we have already recommended him to family and friends. We highly recommend Wamboldt Heating and Air Conditioning!
