Daikin whole house air conditioning
About two months ago we had Air Ace install a Daikin whole house split system heating and Air Conditioning system. It isn’t typically the system that Joel installs but we had done some research on the product and we asked him about it he in turn did some research and together we decided that this was the right system for our house.   We could not be happier with the system. It is quiet and appears to be very efficient. So efficient that we have found we do not have to run all of the system most of the time even when temperatures have reached over 90. We have received an energy bill and figure that we are running this system for approximately $1 a day. We did not previously have whole house air conditioning so we ran window air conditioning units very sparingly. And with that usage saw a huge jump in our electric bill. Of course we haven’t run the heater and expect it to be more expensive because we will be running the system continuously but if it works as well as the air we will be extremely happy.


But the main reason that I am writing the review is because of the service we have received. We gave the job to Joel because he was willing to look out of the box at a product that he wasn’t as familiar with and honestly had only installed additions to systems not a whole house system. These systems are fairly new and Daikin brand is certainly not a strong player in the US but has been used in Europe for decades. Not every professional will do this they will sell you what they carry and that is the end of the discussion. And of course he was competitive in his price. So he took on this project with us… he was honest, timely, professional  and added more to the job than originally thought necessary still staying within his original estimate. This is very rare I have worked with contractors and other professionals many times and I have rarely had someone that finished the job in a timely fashion, over delivered and did not add to their estimate in the process. We highly recommend Joel for any heating and air conditioning job that you have.

Joel Nieman, the owner of Air Ace Heating and Cooling, is a very conscientious owner, and has called, and stopped after the install, to make sure I was satisfied, and to make sure all was running efficiently! I highly recommend him and his business. The cost of installing a new unit was very reasonable, too! I have a very nice cooled house now!

I have called Joel a few times over the past 2 years for air conditioning & even advice on refrigeration. I am very happy with his service, the time he takes to explain the problem, & make repairs. I would & have recommended him to others.

    Great company, easy to work with, communicate quickly & clearly, very professional & detailed. The owner takes great pride in his quality work while taking on new / young people to help train them in the HVAC field with his years … More of experience. They have done great work multiple times for me & I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area.

    I have never seen a more thorough job in my life
    Before declaring my 30 year old unit dead they went through every inch, trying to fix it.
    Before installing the new unit they personally paid to have my entire house and yard sprayed for
    … More bugs (which have always been an issue sense moving)
    They do great work, have a great staff and are very reasonable for the amount of work they do, I would recommend them to anyone

    After reading several positive reviews, we decided to give AirAce a call when our AC went out. It was fixed quickly and was affordable. We were very pleased with both Joel and Tyler and will definitely plan to use them in the future for … More routine maintenance!

    Our secondary heat exchanger went out and Joel was able to replace it to keep the furnace running great! Joel and Tyler are very knowledgeable and helped me understand how the furnace works and what was broken. They talked me through other … More things I could do to help make my home and HVAC more efficient and comfortable. Will definitely come back to AirAce again!

    Joel and his team were very responsive. We had an appointment on Wednesday to fix our A?C unit and found out it was not repairable. Ordered a new unit and it was installed by end of day on Saturday. Installation was professional and … More we are happy with the new unit. I would recommend Air Ace to any onlooking for service or installation of a HVAC system
