Woke up on coldest day of the year, furnace out. Of course. Called other shops who couldn't come out for hours. Called Hinding, and they sent a guy within 30 minutes. No nonesense; he found the problem and fixed it immediately. Heat within

We had our furnace and air conditioning unit replaced by Hinding earlier this month.
I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Their rates were competitive.
They were very fast (5 hours start to finish). I hardly even knew they were there. They were efficient.
The two gentleman who came to do the work were very polite and knowledgeable and their manager even came out to say hello to me and inspect the work.
They did a great job and I am very very happy with the results.

They don't honor their warranties. I called them to get my furnace fixed as it was not working properly (they had installed it and it was under warranty with them). After a week of living in a house that was below 60 degrees, they were able to come out to fix it. They would only come sooner if it was not running at all. The problem was fixed but then I was given a bill. They claimed the furnace was working fine and they only did a tune up which is not covered by the warranty (despite reassuring me several times that it would be covered by the warranty when I called them initially). It seems they will tell you anything to get their foot in your door so they can start charging you; warranty or no warranty.

**EDIT**: Since the time this was posted. All issues stated above were resolved very quickly and professionally.

In January ??10 I purchased a Furnace/Central AC from Hinding Company. Prior to choosing Hinding, I met with 5 other companies, all of which also offer top of the line HVAC brands. The pricing between the 6 companies was competitive so that wasn't a deciding factor.

I chose Hinding Company because 1) they are a local company who have been in business for many years, 2) they back their equipment with outstanding parts & labor warrantees and 3) Brian, the company's representative, is a person of integrity. I trust the information he provided me and believe the company will be available should I need service or repairs in the future. Brian is also a person with outstanding follow-through. He is always quick to respond to an email or phone call. This is very reassuring when making such a major purchase If anyone is considering a furnace/ac purchase, I would be glad to provide a reference for Hinding Company.

Thanks for the great job. You arrived as I leaving for work at 7 am and my husband called before 3pm that the new thermostat,furnace,air conditioner and air puriffier were all installed and working..You are a very professional group ,we had 2 other estimate appts set up but after Brian looked everything over and gave us a quote we decided to go with "the guys in the neighborhood". We had previously dealt with Bucky and always had good service, so decided not to bother with other estimates. Everything was cleaned up and all old equiptment taken away, wouldn't have known you were there if it wasn't for new equiptment.
Thank to all your staff, from first phone call to installation.

Cons: NONE

I recently had a new furnace installed. Hinding came out and did a good job at a great price. Their prices beat the competition, and they installed the same products as companies that charge more. They did an excellent job of putting in the new furnace. They disposed of the old one and cleaned up the mess . They are very professional and have excellent customer service. I can call the office any time with any question and they answer it promptly and respectfully. I??m glad I chose Hiding and would recommend them to any one.

Working with Hinding was very easy as communication was timely and installation was painless! Brian kept us informed and answered all our questions. The installers knew what they were doing and completed the job in a timely manner. They even cleaned up after. All in all a good experience.

We have done business with Hinding for many years and have found their service to be honest and very reliable. One of the pros for us is that we see the same serviceman every time. He knows our system very well and we don't have to take time explaining anything. We use them for regular maintenance and an occasional repair.

I was very surprised that Hinding would put in a $125.00 thermostat in an old building with an old boiler. In that there is no cooling with a Hot Water boiler, why have it put in a thermostat which has cooling control, and why such a sophisticated piece of equipment.

We had a problem with our central air conditioner this summer and had to have a service call on it. In calling the company that originally installed it a few years ago we discovered they have since gone out of business. Not knowing who else to call we asked around and were referred to Hinding Heating & Air Conditioning. They not only came out promptly and resolved our problem but also honored our remaining warranty. The gentleman that came to our house had to come out twice in fact and never once acted like it was an inconveience for him to do so. Hinding obviously went out of their way to satisfy us. I will recommend them to anyone that I know needs any kind of heating or air conditioning service in the future. Great job guys.

We had our furnace and A/C installed by Hinding over 12 years ago. Unfortunately on Saturday, August 8th a capacitor in the A/C system gave up and the the house could not be cooled. We called on Monday morning (after a warm Sunday without A/C) and they were able to get the system up and running within 15 minutes! This will be a hot and humid week, so we really appreciate the quick service to keep us cool! E ven our cats were happy at the service, since they could cuddle up to the vents to cool off once the A/C started working again!

Hinding Heating is reliable. I have had an air conditioner & recently a high efficiency furnace installled by this company.They will absolutely stand behind their product & service. The most recent example is coming to my home 3 times in 1 day to get my air conditioner running. In years past they won me over when an owner came out to fix our air conditioning after my husband called urgently & left a message explaining that his uncle's funeral luncheon was at our home that day. My inlaws previously owned our home & had bought from & recommended Hinding when we were replacing products. Interestingly Hinding had put the original furnace in our home when it was in a newly built housing development srea 50+ years ago.
I can tell you I will never again buy anything from large, well known SEARS, after repeatedly trying & failing locally & at corporate office to get a response to my hot water heater installation problem. Purchasing from a family owned company such as Hinding definitely has sold me on a company taking ownership of its customer's requests. The only con I can think of is that they are not available on weekends.

We recently had both Central Air and a new high efficiency furnace installed in our home in the Mac-Grove Neighborhood. Brian with Hinding was prompt to show up for appointments. He was able to evaluate the property, determine our need , and had the product delivered and installed by knowledgeable people at the time that was agreed on which was important to our schedule. I double checked his bid with a relative that does the same kind of work in another area, and he confirmed that it was a very fair price. Thanks Brian

This company is unique. I called Hinding Company when my furnace was on the fritz and they came out right away (I?d never used them before, they were referred to me by a friend). I believe the guy?s name was Pat, he was great. Not only did Pat fix my furnace, but he also showed me exactly what to do if it stopped working again. He said it would save me the service call fee of having him back out, and it was easy enough & safe enough to do myself. Pat also gave me a quote for replacing the part, and said I may want to consider replacing the entire system someday due to lack of operating efficiency and wasted money on utilities. This type of no-pressure, helpful service is very unique these days. Thank you Pat & thank you Hinding Company, I?ll now be referring you to everyone I know.

We recently had a brand new furnace installed, replacing our old one. They came out and gave us an estimate and we set up a date for the work to be done. They were very prompt in coming out, and the workers they sent were very professional and efficient. They answered all our questions with patience and understanding. The work they did was excellent. They removed the old furnace and put in the new one in just a couple of hours. They disposed of the old one and did an excellent job of putting in the new furnace. They cleaned up the mess and again offered us a chance to ask questions even after they left. They said we could call the office any time, with any question we have. Every employee with the company we dealt with were very nice and knowledgeable and did an outstanding job. The estimate that they gave was exact and I would recommend them highly for any heating or air conditioning needs you may have.

Found Hinding through a Google search after my 20 year old furnace went out. They had several 5 star reviews so I decided to try them and was not disappointed. I received a prompt, knowledgeable and skilled Tech. The entire service call took less than an hour and my heat was on.

Repair costs were reasonable and I paid what I expected. When I asked, the Tech gave me the straight scoop about replacement furnaces (hi efficiency vs low efficiency and cost/saving benefits) and how much a new furnace would cost.

Hinding appears the type of service company that we all wish still existed. Quality Workmanship without gouging it's customers.

After a year of hearing a noisy, old boiler, and constantly adding oil to it, I decided it was time for a new boiler in my house. The decision to go with Hinding Heating was easy. A Saint Paul business with great reputation, professionalism, and great prices. I was very impressed with their cleanliness and skilled work. They were friendly, respectful and above all the job was done fast (and well done!). Without any hesitation, I recommend Hinding Heating to anyone in need of heating and cooling services. Great Service!

Our house, built in 1908, used to be a duplex, so we had 2 (ancient) boilers; one to heat the main floor, the other to heat the second floor. When we decided to convert the duplex into a single family home, we had our heating company at that time (Not Hinding) come in and 'rig' the boilers so that there was 1 main boiler to heat and the 2nd would kick in to help if needed. When the 2nd boiler stopped working, that same company came in and said that it would cost a lot. We had learned that this other company wasn't meeting our expectations, more so that they accidentally didn't hook something up correctly and it could have become a serious issue.

So that's the background....We stopped using the other company and called Hinding. They came it knowing what they were talking about and their products. They removed our 2 hot water heaters, 2 boilers and old water softener and installed just one boiler unit with a hot water sidearm. We can't believe how much extra space we have in the basement now. Originally, it was only hooked up to heat the whole house. Little did we know, since the whole boiler system had never been properly drained by the other company, the upstairs was about 10 degrees warmer. Even in MN, that was hot up there. So HInding came out again and gave a nice discount to rework so that the main and second floors heat separately using their own thermostats.

The workers at Hinding are very skilled, knowledgeable and fair to their customers.

We needed to replace a very old furnace when we moved into a home we purchased last fall. The guys from Hinding came out and did a great job at a great price. Our new furnace has been working great all winter. Their prices definitely beat the competition, and they install the same high quality products as companies that charge more. Hinding also installed a boiler at our old house about five years ago, and it worked great the entire time we lived there. Highly recommended!

During a recent cold snap, my twenty plus year old furnace went out on a Saturday night. I called Hinding Heating to see if they could come out to repair it (knowing that a replacement was over due). Tom stopped by a few minutes later and worked until 11PM to make sure I had heat for the evening. The next day I returned home and realized that it had gone out again. Tom stopped over with some space heaters to get me through Sunday night and ensured me he could have a new high efficiency furnace installed on Monday morning. In addition, he returned my payment for the unsuccessful repairs and only billed me for the new furnace and installation. They even processed the paperwork for my Xcel energy rebate. I appreciate the prompt and fair service I received and have been very happy with my new furnace.

In late January we ordered a new furnace through Hinding Heating & Air. We have a gas boiler heating system. The furnace was installed without incident and worked as expected. The installers showed up at the expected time and went right to work. They knew what they were doing and soon had the new furnace installed and running. They removed the old furnace and cleaned up the area before leaving. We had a radiator on the front porch and decided to stop using it since we do not really use the front porch very much in the winter. That was a BIG mistake because the water still remained in the radiator. After a few days the radiator cracked because of the cold weather and began to leak. We called Hinding late in the day close to their closing time. To our surprise the owner Tom came to our home even though this was after their normal closing time. He explained to us our blunder in a very friendly manner and then went to the basement and disconnected the line going to the porch by cutting the pipe and capping it. He spent over an hour of his time, cutting pipes and capping them. Then he also cleaned up the area when he was finished. We asked him for the bill and he graciously declined to bill us. We were shocked. We highly recommend this company.

Last summer we called Hinding for some ideas on air conditioning the upstairs floor. It became very hot
during the summer. Seeing that our girls used this floor for their bedroom, we needed something fast.
We decided on the air conditioning unit that looks like a picture. The girls like the fact that they can put
whatever picture they want in the frame part.
The technicians were very professional, friendly and knowledgable. They took the time out to show us
how to use the remote. The best part is they got the job done in a very efficient manner.
We will always recommend Hinding to our friends and family for any of their heating and cooling
concerns.

how to use the remote. The best part is they got the job done in a very efficient manner.
We will always recommend Hinding to our friends and family for any of their heating and cooling
concerns.

Pros: Quick service

Cons: None

I checked out several heating companies in the Twin Cities when I was looking for a more efficient boiler. Hinding Heating in St. Paul was the best fit. Their pricing was competitive and the staff was professional before, during and after the job. Plus, they're good guys. I like that the owner, Tom, stopped by my house and explained the options I had as far efficiency, installation and pricing. Hinding has been around for a long time -- I think since the 1930s -- and that's comforting to know. I'm happy I went with Hinding. I recently recommended them to a co-worker and he's happy with their work, too.

Hinding was prompt, professional and clean. They were in and out of my house within an hour and my furnace was like new. It's pretty rare these days to find a company with this standard of service.

Pros: Great Work

These guys were good. We went to start up the furnace and nothing happened. We called Hinding and they were out to our house the same day. Our furnace was very old and we knew it was about time to replace it. They went over a bunch of options with us and decided to replace it with a high efficiency unit that came with rebates and tax credits. With the rebates, tax credits and efficiency savings this furnace was a great investment. CORRECTION to my review yesterday. I did qualify for the high efficiency rebates for my furnace, but the tax rebate will not be in effect until 2009. It was an option but I couldn't wait on the installation until 2009, my furnace was shot. Sorry about the confusion in my review yesterday, hopefully this one clears everything up.

I had Hinding come out to repair my furnace when one of the major parts failed on a very cold winter day. They were able to come out right away and get the furnace working until we could purchase a new one. I then got quotes from 6 other heating companies. The Hinding quote was very competitive, we end up picking them because of the low cost, and high quality of the products they sold. The installation was done quickly within a couple days and was efficient (they were done in 2-3 hours), and the installers also explained to me how the system worked, which was very nice. The package they sold me was just want we needed. Sales was great sold just want we needed and nothing extra. It was a very good experience.

Pros: Name brand (Carriers, Coleman), Fast service, Low price, Good value.

Cons: I didn't ask for a 25x16x4" filter case/boot which some competitors where offering, this is my fault.

The service from Hinding was great. Pat came out right on schedule to look at our furnace. He was upfront & very knowledgable, our furnace was fixed within 45 minutes and the price was good. Thanks Hinding.

After getting a few quotes from local heating and air conditioning companies, I was encouraged by coworkers to contact Hinding because they had received excellent service from Hinding Heating and Air.
Hinding not only gave me the best quote and offered the longest warrantees but provided all the information I needed to make a decision. No high pressure sales tactics--just accurate, honest , easy to understand information. I chose Hinding to replace my furnance and air conditioner and I am so happy I did. They certainly lived up to my coworkers recommendations.

I had my boiler replaced this year by Hinding. I had five bids and chose theirs as the second lowest bid.

While the boiler itself is a quality boiler, they do very rapid, slap-dash work. All the near boiler piping is wrong according to the boiler manufacturer and may void the warranty. When I argued this with Hinding it was clear they haven't much expertise on the subject and don't pay attention to changes in their field.

The install was very fast, so fast that they left without even letting it get to operating temperature or pressure or bleeding radiators. I had to do all that.

When I had some problems,they took nearly a month to get a part they should have had in stock.

And they failed to get cit.y permits It ultimately did pass inpection, but the inspector said they do this often and that it was a "sloppy changeout".

PS I have a boilers license, I am not expert but fairly informed about the subject.

Never again. You get one chance to get a boiler changeout right, and its all about piping and the "art". Ask about HOW they will install, don't focus on the boiler itself as they are generally all very good.Among other things, reject any bid that puts the circulator on the return unless they can explain why it should be done so (as it sometimes should).

Thanks to Hinding's lack of concern, we now have a boiler that heats unevenly, and uses too much gas that will cost us $1k to correct when it should have been done right in the first place.
