Mini split in art studio

Feb 26, 2015 by Janice R.

I had part of my garage converted into an art studio at our house on Mt. Helix. We have central AC in the house and looked at the option of running some ducting from the house to the garage. But after getting a load calculation on the house from Carini, we learned that the system inside the house was running at capacity for the size of the house, the type of windows, doors and exposures. One option was to install a window AC unit for the studio, but found that these systems require a lot of power and are not considered energy efficient and probably couldn't have kept the studio cool during our hot summers up here. So we decided to have Carini install a Fujitsu mini split system and I can say that it was one of the best decisions we've ever made for a home appliance. The unit does both heating and air conditioning, and I since it isn't connected to the big system in the house, I don't have to feel guilty about wasting energy in the house and keeping the system on inside while I'm working in the studio. It cools off the room very quickly and heats up just as fast on cold days.

Great Air Conditioning Installation in El Cajon/Dehesa

Apr 22, 2014 by Jamie G.

My family has a home in the Dehesa area and we vowed last year that we wouldnt go another summer without air conditioning. We are a member of Angie's List and after researching several different companies, decided to add Carini Heating and Air to the list of estimates we wanted to get. There are a lot of good heating and air companies that work in East County and we got bids on Rheem, Trane and York equipment from both big and small companies. We eventually chose Carini because their owner, Gabriel Carini gave us the most complete estimate and seemed to be the most knowledgeable about the equipment, energy efficiency and what we really needed at the best price. It wasnt the lowest bid but it wasnt the highest either, and we have to say that they installation crew was clean, on time and communicated what was going on throughout the job. We would use them again and are confident to recommend them to friends and family.

It may not be a big deal to everyone but the company is very active in community service activities and giving back to the community always a nice extra for when we choose a contractor or other kind of business for our family.

My Rheem furnace in Del Mar

Apr 16, 2014 by Dennis N.

I needed service on a furnace that we have had in our house in Del Mar for almost 18 years. It was working fine until December but then one day it had a funny smell and then no longer worked. I found Carini Heating and Air Conditioning on YELP and saw they had good ratings. I also read reviews about them and had their service man come to check the system. The man, Anthony, took a lot of time an explained that a newer furnace could save on energy use and the warranty was good (it was a Rheem heater). I have been very happy with the performance since it was installed. Good work by the company.

HERO Financing for our HVAC purchase in San Diego

We used the HERO financing program to fund our new heating and air conditioning installation in our house in San Diego. The process was simple, the rate was good and it is tax deductible!

Great air conditioning system service

Feb 06, 2014 by David Carr

Your service technician came out to diagnose a problem with our Lennox air conditioning system last week. Not only did he fix the problem quickly, but he also found a disconnected duct under the house, which was a problem we didn't even know we had. The price for the service was fair and we liked that he wore show covers and was overall very professional.

Great job !!!

Jan 17, 2014 by DAVID NORTON

We thought we would take a minute to let Carini Heating and Air know that they performed a great job and provided top quality service in the installation of our new heating and air conditioning unit. I plan on recommending them to others in the coming years, great job once again.

New Air Conditioning for my La Jolla Home

Mar 22, 2013 by Mary Sennick

We recently had Carini Heating and Air install a new air conditioning and heating system in our house in the Birdrock area of La Jolla and we can't say enough about the quality of the work and the professionalism of the project. It was great working directly with the owner of the company and he went above and beyond with his detailed estimate and follow-up.

Response: Thank you Mary for choosing our company for your heating and air installation! You and your family were a pleasure to work with! Thanks again for the opportunity :)

New furnace Installation was Perfect

Dec 07, 2012 by Jeff Pollack

We just wanted to say thanks to Carini Heating and Air for a great installation of a new Rheem central heating and air conditioning system at our home in El Cajon. The price was competitive and the installation went off without a hitch!

These guys came and did an inventive and clean installation of heating/cooling units. The boys explained everything, answered all questions, came equipped to deal with obstacles and new situations (wood working tools etc., as needed) and left the place absolutely clean. The price was good but the confidence in the expertise and knowledge is even better. Good choice.

I would highly recommend Carini Heating and Air for your HVAC needs

Aug 10, 2012 by Linda B.

We had the unexpected occur just before Christmas. SDG&E tagged my old workhorse of a forced-air furnace as dangerous. The antiquated unit was a Carrier and had served me well.

I did my routine online, friend and neighbor research. I called a handful of big name HVAC companies. I was troubled by inconsistent information. A neighbor referred me to Carini Heating and Air, stating they had a difficult install and Carini was the only company willing to take the job. They were pleased with the outcome.

Gabriel came out and walked my home. We talked about options, needs, preferences and prices. I quickly was provided a cost estimate for three options, each of which was adequately explained to me. I opted for adding central air and replacing existing duct work all at once, and I selected Rheem products.

It rained heavily on installation day and our attic roof leaked. The yard turned to muck. We encountered many challenges during this project that couldn’t have been foreseen.

Gabriel and his crew were super. They were patient and offered excellent problem-solving suggestions as problems arose. His crew is knowledgeable, courteous, professional and everyone worked hard in difficult conditions. They arrived on time, cleaned up each evening and accommodated my four cats and a dog.

In short, I highly recommend Carini Heating and Air for your HVAC needs.

UPDATE: I recently recommended Carini to a neighbor who had an extremely complex HVAC requirement. She went with Carini after interviewing several other vendors and was pleased with the work.
