Dear Mr. Veling, my family and I want to thank you again for installing our new air conditioning and heating System. We chose Hidden Meadows Heating & Air after checking out three other companies. After you Personally explained the correct size system we needed, the complete procedure from start to finish, Answered all of our questions, and described the different brands you offer along with cost estimates, We knew your company would be the best choice.

All of the work from removing the old system through installation and operation of the new system was outstanding, and we highly recommend Hidden Meadows Heating & Air.

Hello - We just wanted to thank Joe Veling and his assistant Diego for their superb work installing our new Midea heat/cool mini split in one of our bedrooms. It is extremely quiet, efficient, and uses much less power than the big whole-house heat & A/C unit. Their workmanship was professional, knowledgeable, and they got the job done in one day! We have used Joe's company, Hidden Meadows Heating and Air before, installing a cool-only mini split in the other bedroom a few years ago, and it still works flawlessly. We would highly recommend Hidden Meadows Heating and Air to anyone who uses only part of their house primarily, and would like to save money on power costs as well.

Joe from HM Heating & Air was fantastic! We had a new furnace and air conditioner installed. He did exactly what he promised on time. He was prompt, polite, and followed up the next week to make sure everything was working properly. Since then I've referred his services, with confidence, to friends and Joe did a great job. Thanks Joe.

Joe installed a new air conditioner & furnace for me . He gave me quotes for several different makes and units, and the bill was exactly as quoted. He was on time and finished the job quickly and efficiently. He stopped by later without being called to see if I was satisfied. Great guy, Excellent job.

I called one of the large companies whose ads are seen all the time on local TV. I actually wanted him to "try" fix it, but to my dismay he said that "...he didn't have any repair equipment on the truck. I received an estimate of $6,000 to $9,000 for a new comparable unit.

I then happened to see on the freeway a service truck from Hidden Meadows Heating and Air. Their slogan was "Repair Rather Than Replace". Hidden Meadows Heating and Air showed up, went straight into diagnosis mode, and within an hour suggested stop leak and gave me an accurate repair estimate. How refreshing! They explained the probabilities of success, some of the risks of failure for an attempted repair, and then let me decide the best course.

My recommendation is to call Hidden Meadows Heating and Air FIRST,DO NOT let a repair "salesman" near your unit until you have first had Hidden Meadows Heating & Air take an honest look at it. It is nice to know that competent repair technicians and honest businesses still exist.

Installed a Mini Split Ductless System If you live up in the Meadows, you know that it can get really hot. Last summer was absolutely brutal. The sun bakes the front bedroom, which we use as our TV room, to where you feel the heat through the walls. We have a whole house A/C unit, but it sucks a lot of power, and the second it turns off the room bakes again. We called Joe, and he installed a cool-only minisplit for a fraction of what I thought he would charge. It's the kind of unit that you see in a lot of Asian countries, and now newer motels. It uses little power - converts AC to 3-phase DC and has a variable speed compressor to optimize cooling and energy use. It cools a roasting room down NOW. Joe's work is impeccable and he got the job done in one day. I would recommend him for any sort of HVAC work. Plus he's a nice easygoing non-pushy kind of guy.

Joe, with Hidden Meadows Heating & Air, replaced our furnace and installed air conditioning
in our home. It was a quality installation that was done on time and with caring follow up.

I called several large air conditioning / heating companies and they gave me estimates $3000 - $4000 for a whole house fan. One company said it couldn't be done. Joe Veling came out and gave me an estimate for half the cost of the other companies. I needed a whole house fan to cool my house in the Summer. Living down in the valley of Lake Rancho Viejo, my home can get up to 85 degrees inside when it is closed up all day. At night we can't move the hot air out and get the cold air in because any breeze are blocked by other houses. when I turn on the fan it sucks in all the cool night air and blows out the hot air in 15 minutes. My house will stay cool all night without using AC. Its amazing. Joe was quick and clean with his work. After this experience I called Joe to put in an AC unit in my rental house and again I had great results.
Thanks Joe

We have had problems with our air conditioning system for numerous years really not knowing the problem. Joe thoroughly did a detailed analysis to determine that our A/C was not large enough for our home. Therefore, he and his team came out to replace our entire A/C and Heating System. After it was installed, we finally had cool air during the hot summer days. The price that we paid was very affordable, and Joe will conduct annual checkups to make sure that our system is properly maintained. Equally important, my family appreciates the personal service that Joe provides; therefore, we highly recommend Joe and his team with our complete confidence..

Joe worked on our very old and not installed well system. He came up with wonderful solutions for our home and we could not be happier. Our electric bills have improved greatly. Joe is kind and helpful. He arrives on time and cleans up when finished.

Used them on multiple occasions - everything from coolant recharge to full A/C unit replacement. Thorough and professional every time. Work is always well explained, with clearly defined options, benefits, and risks for doing or not doing the work.

Joe showed up on time and inspected my heat pump system. He explained in details what the problem was and explained the options. We agreed on the product to replace my system and the price for parts and labor. Job was done quickly cleanly and professionally. I now have a go to guy for all my future heating and air conditioning needs. Thanks Joe!

We have had Joe from Hidden Meadows Heat and Air work on our AC/HeatPump system several times over the years since moving into our home. The original was an early 80s vintage heat pump and he was able to keep that clank-ity inefficient monster going until it was no longer cost effective to continue to run it. When the compressor finally died, we discussed fix or replace options and he presented a extremely fair price for a new unit. Quickly and professionally he replaced our old unit just in time for the winter season. What a difference! We have highly recommended him to our friends many times over.
Don't waste time on the bait and switch guys. Joe is honest and will try to fix it first. But if you need it replaced, he will give you a fair deal too. Two thumbs up from me!

Joe and his help did a great job installing a new quality heat pump and saved me a lot of money, at the same time, over other options. I was able to get the changes made I needed, and he made sure everything was done right without playing games or trying to get more money out of me. He cleaned up everything and fixed minor damaged from getting the old unit out, leaving no trace. There was a minor issue with the unit shortly after installation, which he quickly resolved. He followed up a few weeks later to test the system and made sure everything was running optimally.

Joe will give it to you straight and not try to sell you something you don't need. In my case, I choose a new unit to save on operational costs, as my 35 year old unit was far from efficient. Joe had maintained it for the previous owner and it was actually working, but cost way too much to run. We upgraded to a much more efficient unit, that costs a small fraction of what the old one did to run. If you're looking for an honest, local, experienced tech to repair or replace your HVAC system, Joe's your man.

Hidden meadows has installed three new heating/AC units in my house and has serviced my other two older units. Joe and his team are very professional and work hard to repair the unit if it's serviceable. It's hard to find a good HVAC you can trust and these guys are one of the best.

Joe is honest, knows what he is doing, and will fix something in lieu of always selling you something new. He fixed our old AC Unit when nobody else would, then when we needed a new one Joe found the right "space saver" HVAC unit. We had him add a Hospital Grade Air Purifier while we were at it! I don't spend much time writing reviews, but Joe's service for us was so good I felt compelled.
