I've been hearing a lot lately about mini split ductless systems, and thought since we were going to install an AC system in our house for the first time, that we should evaluate ductless systems compared to the regular systems with ducting throughout the house. Our attic is very small and there is no crawl space under the house, so the idea of a ductless system was appealing even before we compared brands and contractors. My research found that there are a few manufacturers of ductless systems - Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Daiken are the main ones I found. We decided on Fujitsu after some research and referrals and then looked into Carini as one of a few contractors that we got bids from. Carini seemed to be the most knowledgeable and had a lot of ideas that the other contractors didn't mention. There price was not the lowest but we ended up hiring them and have been very satisfied with their service and attention to detail. We ended up with a 3 zone Fujitsu mini split and believe it was the best decision for our house and for energy efficiency. Thank you Carini - a job well done!

We purchased a new house in Carmel Valley this year and it had a furnace but no air conditioning. The furnace was about 23 years old so we decided to replace it and add an air conditioning system. Carini gave us a detailed proposal that included a zone system that lets us control the upstairs and downstairs independently, and because the system was higher efficiency, it qualified for a loan though the HERO Program. Carini did a great job with the installation, was on time every day and we highly recommend looking into the HERO Program as well. It was very easy to apply and get approved, and we can even write off the interest on our taxes.

My Wife and I had over 15 companies place bids for our home. That may sound ludicrous, but trust me it was well worth the work to find Carini Heating and Air Conditioning. Gabriel ( owner ) came out and went

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 Angies List and after researching several different companies, decided to add Carini Heating and Air to the list of estimates we wanted to get. We also saw a lot of good reviews here on Inside Pages. 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.

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.

We found Carini Heating and Air from Angie's List and saw that they had a lot of good reviews going back several years. We hired them to install a complete heating and AC system (Rheem) and chose them because they seemed to have the best design for our house and we appreciated that the owner spent a lot of time with us and never tried to hard sell. We first got an estimate about one year before we finally did the work and we were able to get the job done quickly when we decided to use Carini. The workers were very polite, clean and friendly and made sure we knew what was happening as the work went along. Thanks Carini! We will recommend you.

We bought our house in the Talmadge area of San Diego 4 years ago and every year we said we were going to install a new heating and air conditioning system. Alls we had was an old wall furnace in the hallway, and we used a bunch of space heaters in the winter and had one window air conditioner in our daughter's room that we bought at Home Depot. We finally made the decision to purchase the new system for the whole house, and went with Carini Heating and Air after doing a lot of research and talking to several companies. We decided on Carini for three main reasons: 1. They had the most experience of any company we talked to with old homes in and around our neighborhhood; they did more measuring and calculations than any other company that gave us an estimate so we felt that they knew exactly what we needed, and their price seemed very fair and more competitive than the guys in town that advertise on TV. We were so pleased with their work and they even took the time to give us detailed instructions of how to change the programming on the thermostat and made sure we understood everything.

I highly recommend Carini Heating and Air if you have any kinds of problems with your furnace or air conditioning system in San Diego! This is the 2nd time I've used them, the first being when I replaced my heater and most recently when there was not enough air coming into my daughters room and the upstairs bathroom. I'm not technical enough to fully understand what they did but now the air is great in both of these rooms and everywhere else in the house. Air balancing is what they called it. As a single mom I feel very safe calling this company and everyone they sent over has been respectful, friendly and clean.

We live in a 23 year old house in Carmel Valley and our air conditioning condenser has seen better days! It is pretty rusted out and we had 3 estimates to replace it. The estimate I received from Carini was by far the most complete and based on a what looked like a much more complete analysis of our house. The other companies came in, asked us about the square footage and then took 3 days to get back to us. Carini wasn't the cheapest but we feel very good about selecting them for the job. The workers were very professional and we felt safe with them in our home.

I chose Carini Heating and Air Conditioning to install my new AC system because we have a house in Mission Hills and we learned that they work a lot in older homes. We couldn't be happier with our choice! The guys on the crew were great - Johnny and Tim were courteous, efficient and clean and they kept me updated throughout the installation about what was going on and how long it was taking.

As a single woman, I was kind of paranoid about having someone come to service my furnace. I've heard horror stories about unethical home contractors, and of course was afraid I would end up paying too much for the repairs (since I know NOTHING about furnaces). I can barely figure out how to use the thermostat. But I was pleasantly surprised by the great service I got from Carini Heating and Air Conditioning for my condo in El Cajon. Their service manager showed explained what was wrong in plain english, and made sure I understood why he had to replace a part and install a new clean filter. The cost was extremely reasonable and it only took less than an hour to do get the system running. I also decided to get a new thermostat that was as easy to run as my microwave!

Thanks to everyone at Carini Heating and Air.

I own a two-story townhouse in North Park and needed to replace an old furnace. I heard about Carini Heating and Air from one of the girls in my office, who used them to install an air conditioning and heating system in her house in PB. Gabriel Carini, the owner, came out to my place the day after I called, and I could tell a big difference from working with the owner of the company compared to some of the AC salesman the other companies sent out. He was extremely knowledgeable and came up with some creative ways to let me to add air conditioning along with the furnace at a price I could afford. I also did some research on different brands, and the Rheem systems they specialize in were rated highest in a consumer report that I read. Long story short, we got the best price and package from Carini, and I hope other people give them a try!

I hired Carini Heating and Air Conditioning to install a new furnace and air conditioning system in my house in South Park. Our house is pretty old, building in 1938, and I wanted to make sure that I used an air conditioning and heating company that knew how to work in old houses without damaging ceiling and walls. Gabe Carini the owner of the company gave me several referrals from homeowners in Kensington, South Park and Mission Hills, and all of them had nothing but good things to say about the company, including their installers, service people and office staff. I'm very pleased with the work Carini provided, with Gabriel's personal attention and with the price I paid. Thank you to all at Carini Heating and Air Conditioning!

I hired Carini Heating and Air Conditioning to replace my 23 yr. old furnace in my house in PB. The property management firm I work for uses them for all their rental properties throughout San Diego County, and I've only heard good things about them over the years from our tenants. They always arrive on time, make sure that our rental houses and condos are kept clean and their prices are extremely fair with great quality products like Rheem.

So when it was time to replace our furnace, it was an easy choice. I did some research on the Rheem equipment they proposed, and found great ratings from Consumer Reports. It's amazing how much more energy efficient this furnace is compared to the old one, and it's so comfortable in our recent cold weather (well, not today, but I'm sure it will get cold again!)

I also posted a review on google, this is one of the few service companies we used that deserves the effort. We had a tricky venting problem in our master bath, they solved it per their commitment for a fair price. Follow up service was terrific, wish all our contractors were as good as they are.

Our house in Poway (92064) is about 28 yrs old and we have been using the original air conditioning system and furnace. We heard great things about Carini Air Conditioning from our friends who live in the 4sRanch development, so we called them in April 2010 when the AC finally stopped working. We got a great price on a new high efficiency Rheem air conditioner, and were totally impressed by the Carini crew, their professionalism and quality of work.

We're new to San Diego and just bought a new house here. My daughter used Carini Air Conditioning when she moved to San Diego, and praised the company for their professionalism and great service. We had them bid on a new Rheem 2 ton air conditioning system (13 seer), and their bid was very fair with no hidden costs or surprises. We also got a new Honeywell 6000 thermostat and new ductwork, along with upgraded electrical. Congratulations to Carini Heating and Air Conditioning for a job well done!

We have a server room at our company in San Diego and needed an air conditioning system that could keep the room cool without running new ducting to the room. Carini Air Conditioning installed a 2.5 ton Fujitsu 15 seer air handler and condenser, gave us a good price and the company was a pleasure to work with. They are honest, clean and were prompt for all meetings and the installation.

My mother and father grew up in San Diego (went to San Diego High) and ouir family grew up in the South Park area of the city. We lived in old San Diego houses without air conditioning just like most of our neighbors, when it wasn't SO DARN HOT in the summers. But if you've lived in San Diego for more than about 15 years, you know that it gets hotter here every year. Long story short, we finally decided to put air conditioning in our 1924 mission style house - and because of the lathe and plaster walls, it was a challenge to put in new air conditioning ducts and to have the system installed without affecting the old style design of the house. We were referred to Carini Air Conditioning in San Diego by some friends who have old houses like us, and they told us that Carini installed their air conditioning, did a great job and that they really understood how to work in old San Diego houses. Gabe Carini, the owner, made us feel comfortable from the time we met, until the job was done, and we can't say enough about how pleased we are with the results. If you want a great job done by great people, we highly recommend Carini Air Conditioning in San Diego for air conditioning and heating.

The team at Carini Heating and Air Conditioning was tasked to come up with a superior custom solution to replace an aged forced air heating and air conditioning system in the two story property here in Carlsbad CA. At every stage of the evaluation and problem solving phases, their team operated more like seasoned IT personnel when compared to typical industry contracted labor. The skill, integrity and ethical approach they used in providing the new solution is rare in any industry. Combined with their unrelenting focus on work quality, detail, performance and energy savings, the new system and ducting is vastly superior to the former unit and solves a 15 year old problem. A+ with many thanks to the Carini Team.

We have had problems with our furnace for the last few years, and have had several San Diego heating and air conditioning contractors out to our house in La Jolla. Each one tried to sell us a new heating system, and said that ours couldn't be repaired. Brian, the service manager from Carini Heating and Air Conditioning came out and fixed the furnace quickly and never mentioned a word about a new system. We are so pleased with Carini Heating and Air and their commitment to honesty, and have recommended them to all our friends.

My family in Florida was in the heating and air conditioning business - and with the heat there, you're kept busy for a good part of the year. When we moved out to Carmel Valley for my husband's work, we bought a house that was air conditioner ready but had no system installed. Gabe Carini came up with some really creative ways to keep our energy use down with a zone system, and we really have saved a lot of money throughout this past summer. From being around the business, we know what a good heating and air company is like - and I can tell you that Carini Heating and Air Conditioning is the best in San Diego for quality, honesty, and they are a pleasure to work with. And their prices are fair and very affordable.

My family in Florida was in the heating and air conditioning business - and with the heat there, you're kept busy for a good part of the year. When we moved out to Carmel Valley for my husband's work, we bought a house that was air conditioner ready but had no system installed. Gabe Carini came up with some really creative ways to keep our energy use down with a zone system, and we really have saved a lot of money throughout this past summer.

My wife and I had Carini Air Conditioning come out to our house in North Park to service our air conditioning system (a 10 year old Carrier). The technician (Brian) was very personable and extremely knowledgeable about our system. I'm sure he could have talked us into buying a whole new system, but instead, fixed the problem and saved us a lot of money. We're not sure how long our current air conditioning system will last, but we are sold on the honesty of Carini Air Conditioning in San Diego - that's for sure - and we'll call them again when this old one needs replacement.

We have three condo rentals in San Diego County - in Oceanside, Downtown San Diego and La Jolla. We needed an air conditioning company to maintain all the air conditioning units in the different properties, and hired Carini Air Conditioning for the job. With regular maintenance programs, we make sure that the air conditioners all last as long as they can, even if they are being used in rentals where tenants generally don't care about maintaining them. So for a small amount of money, we get a really good "insurance policy," and our experience with Carini Air has been great. My partner and I highly recommend them for air conditioning service and installation, and a great product at a great price.

I believe in supporting companies that go out of their way to please the customer - so I want to personally thank Gabriel Carini of Carini Air Conditioning in San Diego for the fantastic job his company did for me in two different homes in San Diego. We used Carini Air when we moved to San Diego, and we just hired them again to put in a completely new energy efficient air conditioning and heating system in our new house in the La Jolla - Pacific Beach area. We loved that Carini Air is family owned and run - just like in the old country! Thanks gabe and the whole family for great service at a great price.

I just moved my family out to San Diego from Chicago, and with all the moving and planning, we needed someone honest and dependable to install an air conditioning system in our new house. We are totally into being ??Green,? - and it??s great to save energy and money while doing something good for the environment. We checked with a number of air conditioning contractors in San Diego, and choosing Carini Air Conditioning was a no-brainer. We worked directly with the owner, Gabe Carini, and from our first meeting, we could tell that he was a straight shooter, eager to come up with the very best and most cost effective solution for our air conditioning needs (nobody told us that it gets this hot where we??re living - east of hwy 15 in Poway).

Gabe is very much into the whole Green movement - and we were very pleased that we found an air conditioning company that cares about the San Diego environment as we do.

We were referred to Carini Air Conditioning in San Diego by our contractor, Pacific Improvements. We live in the Pacific Beach / La Jolla area, and we needed a new air conditioning system. Gabriel Carini was just great - honest to a fault, extremely knowledgeable, and very creative about how we could save money and get an energy efficient air conditioning system. We are sooooooo comfortable now with the new system, and very happy to have saved money while getting what we wanted. Go Carini Air! We love you.

Carini Heating and Air San Diego came to my house in Bonita and created an energy efficient heating and air conditioning system for our ranch style home. The house was built in the 50's with rooms added on to make it a sprawling ranch house, with a lot of rooms needing different kinds of heating and air systems.

We have two rooms that were add-ons and neither could accommodate ducting - so we had Carini Heating and Air San Diego install two mini-split systems that are mounted on the walls, require no ducting and keep the room perfectly warm or comfortably cool.

I can't say thank you enough to Carini Heating and Air Conditioning San Diego for the great job they did installing a new air conditioner and furnace in my Del Mar home. These guys don't leave anything to the imagination - everything was spelled out upfront, pricing was affordable and I got honest answers and professional service from beginning to end. What a refreshing change from other companies I've dealt with.

We moved to the Jamul/Rancho San Diego area - bought a 14 year old home that incredibly had no air conditioning. I can't see how the previous owner could have lived there without it. But, we learned about Carini Air Conditioning San Diego after calling around to a bunch of different AC companies. From the beginning, we just felt that they knew how to provide the best solution for us, and felt comfortable we were getting a fair deal. We're totally happy with the results! Heartily recommend Carini to anyone looking for AC and heating in San Diego. They were prompt, clean, courteous and very concerned that they weren't in our way.

I have a large house in the Chula Vista/Bonita area. We hired Carini Air Conditioning San Diego to put in a new air conditioning system and we wanted to make sure that it would conserve energy and be as "Green" as possible. Carini Air knew what they were doing, and took great care to make sure we had all our needs met. I highly recommend them.

Carini Air Conditioning El Cajon installed a new central air system in an apartment building I own. I found them to be great workers, with pleasant personalities and honest ways of doing business. The prices I was quoted were exactly what I ended up paying, with no surprises. We had a number of challenging issues due to the age of the building, but the company found creative ways to address the technical issues where I believe other companies may not have succeeded. I deal with a lot of vendors, including painters, carpenters and other contractors, and I would put Carini Air up there with the best I've seen.

We live east of 5 near Olivenheim Rd. in a 2 story house. When the house was built, the developer put in an air conditioning system that worked OK for the first 6 years we lived there, but then one day it just stopped working. We heard really good things about Carini Air from a couple neighbors who used them for their home in Encinitas, so had them come over for an estimate. I have to say that Gabe Carini was the most knowledgeable and ethical home contractor I've ever dealt with, really taking the time to analyze our needs, and not trying to push something on us. There prices were fair and the system is great. I would not hesitate recommending them to my neighbors and friends.

I don't normally write reviews, but I was very impressed with Carini. Gabriel, the owner, explained the problem and the likely expenses over the phone BEFORE I made the appointment. Other companies would not do this. Gabriel showed up on time, was very knoweledgeable, fast, considerate, and friendly. His price was what I expected - very reasonable. Most importantly, he was honest. Thank you! I highly recommend Carini.

I have a plumbing company and am often asked for referrals to companies that install air conditioning in San Diego, La Jolla, and other cities in San Diego County. I have been recommending Carini Air Conditioning San Diego to a number of my customers, and I have gotten great feedback about Carini Air's quality of service and honest pricing. Congratulations Carini Air Conditioning San Diego! You guys are the best!

Oh - don't forget, Carini also installs whole home air filtration systems in San Diego - great for homes with lots of dust, pets and large yards with lots of vegetation, pollen, and other natural allergy producers.

We built a custom home in La Jolla through a builder and they recommended Carini Air Conditioning. Carini is first class - they know how to work with high end properties and vintage homes with great attention to detail and follow-through.

Carini Air Conditioning also installs whole home air filtration systems that filter the air of pet hair and odors, all from the main system and all programmable. I'm telling you, this stuff is high tech as you want it to be!

I have a formerly very hot house in Santee that now has a brand new air conditioning system installed by Carini Air Conditioning San Diego. Anyone who needs an honest air conditioning company in San Diego should call Gabe Carini, founder and owner of the company at 619-843-0997 I compared Carini Air with several other air conditioning companies in San Diego, and their prices, technical knowledge, promptness and honesty set them apart from the other.
