In the summer of 2014 I purchased a quaint home on Canandaigua Lake that began it's existence as a barn in 1883. In 1980 it had been converted to a year round home. The previous owners had installed electric baseboard heating units in every room. This wasn't an efficient heating system. Since my husband and I planned to make the lake front house our retirement home, we decided to put in an entirely new heating system.
I have allergies to dust, so I didn't want forced air heat. I spoke with three HVAC contractors. The first two had been recommended by renovation contractors and spent less than a half an hour in the house. One threw out a very low price off the top of his head and the other sent a very high quote in the mail three months later.
The third HVAC contractor was Comstock HVAC, recommended by a good friend. I was impressed with Matt Burt's professionalism and interest in the details at our first meeting. He looked in the crawl spaces and did calculations for an hour all the time listening carefully to my needs. I wanted hot water radiators. Matt did his research and found an efficient up to date hot water radiator system. He coordinated his installation with my renovation contractor and was a pleasure to work with. This was not an easy installation since the house was originally built as a barn and had no basement.
I don't think any other HVAC contractor in the
area could have done this installation. The radiators are streamline and
discreet. Last winter we enjoyed the warm comfort of our silent heating system.
Since the installation, I've called Matt with questions. He always returns my
calls and is quick to come to the house if needed. I would recommend Comstock
HVAC to anyone in need of repairs or replacement of a their heating or cooling
