  •   I can't say enough good things about this company. Eric, Alekos, and team are by far the absolute best that one could hope for in all areas of professionalism, honest advice, and expertise in home heating-n-cooling matters.

    Before we needed any actual service, we'd connected with them for a consultation on a furnace question. Even though we weren't getting any work done with them at the time, Eric was super helpful and totally non-pressurey in letting us know what our options were.

    A short while later when our aging water heater kicked the bucket, we turned to Ariston immediately. We had them replace it with a tankless model and they did an awesome job and were so lovely to work with.

    Before, during, and after the water heater replacement, Eric was a constant source of support and he kept us informed every step of the way. When another contractor we were working with at the same time was cutting corners and treating us like crap, Ariston went above and beyond to help us get an adjacent issue related to our gas line taken care of. Eric also handled all of the City of Berkeley's many hoops with grace, patience, flexibility, and a sense of humor. We were actually sad when our project ended since we wouldn't be able to talk to Eric anymore because he's such an awesome dude!

    Owning a home is often a pain in the neck: Things break and need fixing all the time. Many if not most contractors are total sheisters, ripping you off and making you feel like crap every step of the way. But not, Ariston -- they are the complete opposite -- a shining light of professionalism, expertise, and happiness.  5 stars isn't enough. They really deserve 10.

      Ariston was way above and beyond what I expected from a customer service level. Eric was incredibly helpful. On time, friendly, reponsive, and professional. If I could add stars, I would. Fantastic job!

    thumb Beth H.

      It was a Saturday and heater was broken. I called and they were prompt, professional and took care of my problems without having to replace my furnace.

    Highly recommended and very reasonably priced.

      I can't say enough wonderful things about Alekos, Michael and Lee.  I had two companies "fix" my air conditioning issues.  Basically they charged a lot of money and did nothing.  I was at the point where I was just going to accept that I was never going to have a working air conditioning system.  I decided to try one last time and boy am I glad I did contact Ariston.  They are the best.  I now have air conditioning!!  I just wish I had called them first and sooner.  Don't call anyone else!

  •   I cannot say enough great things about this company!!!

    We remodeled our home and used Aniston for a pretty big project and I must say it was the best company I hired out of all the service providers and sub contractors we worked with.

    Both Alekos and Eric were great- extremely professional, very knowledgeable and patient (our project lasted several months). They are very quick to respond to any questions and concerns even after the installation was completed.

    Alekos is one of the most cheerful and pleasant people I have met and I'm so happy we got to work with them!

    Thank you Ariston!

    thumb Donna P.

      AMAZING! Meticulous work and honest business!! Alekos will take care of you! He and Lee did an amazing job overhauling our homes entire original 1970's heating and AC system. This company takes pride in there work and you can tell happy customers genuinely make Alekos happy!!! Once that AC kicked on I looked at him and said, "I think you might have just saved my marriage!!!" Support local small businesses and go with these guys!

    thumb Lauren S.

      I really enjoyed meeting Eric, he responded quickly to my Yelp quote request and came back with a proposal that was much more reasonable than others.  He was great to work with and replaced a condensation pump and look forward to working with them again.

    thumb Niles L.

      I am a GC, electrical, and solar contractor, and these guys are #1!  We have used them on our projects a bunch of times.  From small troubleshooting to full system replacements, they are absolute perfection!  Quality equipment, quality installations, and top notch customer service!  Small 900sf full systems, to custom high end Eichler projects, they have been consistently a pleasure to work with.

  •   Alekos was very quick in responding to my request for a quote (maybe 10 minutes?). was at the house within two hours, put a workaround in place to get the furnace running, and was back the following morning with the new part for the permanent fix. All in all very prompt, friendly, complete and reasonably prices service. Next time i need HVAC service these are the guys I call. highly recommended.

    thumb Greg S.

      Our three story professional office needed a new AC and two new heating units this year.  Everything decided to stop working at about the same time.  Alekos did a wonderful job replacing all three, at a very competitive price.  The crew was clean and courteous and the work was completed in a very efficient manner.  We were able to schedule the bulk of the job done outside of our office hours, so the disruption to our own work was minimal.  

    I highly recommend this company to any commercial or professional business looking for a responsible and professional furnace and/or  AC replacement contractor. Alekos explained several options to us before we hired him and he helped us personally with learning to use the new Nest thermostats,  which are working out great.  We feel fortunate to have found this company to meet our needs.

    thumb Peggy C.

      Alekos and his team member Michael came out to diagnose some clanging we experienced with our relatively new American Standard A/C unit. They were friendly and professional and explained our system and what maintenance it required to keep it in top shape.

    Ariston is a top operation, they responded promptly and professionally to our inquiry and we highly recommend them for any of your HVAC needs.

    thumb Chad R.

      Ariston recently replaced the vintage 1960 furnace in our duplex.  Eric came out to give the estimate.  He provided a host of options and made recommendations that best suited the job.  He knows his stuff and is willing to spend as much time as necessary to answer questions.  Follow up emails were promptly returned with straight forward answers and professional opinion.
    Alekos, the owner, did the installation himself.  He is a friendly, personable young man.  The work was completed pretty much in a day with a return visit for the city inspection.  His price was very reasonable.
    Highly recommend.

  •   Alekos and his team are fantastic! After hearing about their different options for us, which were explained in great detail weighing the pros and cons of all the different types of systems, we had them install a new high efficiency furnace and AC unit. It was great to work with a team that took the time to thoroughly walk us through all of our questions from start to finish.

    They were clean and respectful of our house, indoors and out, even considering the heavy rains that were pouring down throughout the install (furnace closet is located outside!). Ductwork and all of the hardware is all neat and tidy in our cramped little closet. We got a complete rundown of our new Nest thermostat explaining the features and how to best use it with our lifestyle/needs.

    I'm a DIY type of guy for most projects, but, I'm very glad I made the choice to go with these guys for this task!

    thumb Billy P.

      The team was super friendly and helpful, diagnosing the problem, fixing on the spot, and gave reasonable estimates for recommended future work. Minus one star as I've tried now getting back in touch with them for several days to complete follow up work and have received no response.

    thumb Greg M.

      I got referred to Artisan from a friend that had a new system installed recently.  I had a older system that was having some problems with the pilot light consistently burning out and lots of leaks in my system.  I called another company previously before talking to artisan and they told me that I needed to replace my whole unit because it was too old.   Everything worked I just had a couple of leaks and pilot issues.  Long story short I called artisan and spoke to the owner and he was out here within a couple days and sealed my system and fixed my issue without replacing my unit.   He even went a step further and made some recommended upgrades that cost very little to help save money and keep my house cooler.   If you are considering a HVAC company I highly recommend them .   Very happy long lasting customer here.   And when my old unit does go out I know exactly who I will be calling.

      Ariston Heating and Cooling installed for us a new ductless heating  and cooling system. We highly recommend them, their price was very reasonable, they were very professional, punctual and finished their work on scheduled time. All we can really say is that they are the best heating  and cooling company around.
    Eric went over board to accommodate us with all our needs considering that everything was on a last min call.

    thumb Mirela S.
  •   Ariston HC installed our air conditioning unit, replaced our ducting, and installed a nest style thermostat and programmed it for me (it might actually be a Nest I really haven't touched it since it was programmed)... it was easy to schedule and they showed up on time.  They worked cleanly, quickly, and quietly... we have had zero issues with the unit.  I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for HVAC services.
