Can't say enough about this company. Our furnace wasn't blowing out any heat and of course this happened when it was minus degrees outside, so we had quite the cold house all night. The next morning I called a different company and was on hold for ten minutes, I finally hung up and called Welter Ray next and thankfully they answered right away. They... Full review ›

I called in with some furnace issues. The person answering the phone(Jill?) was VERY helpful and VERY easy to talk with. I can't be 100% sure but I think she bumped us up on the priority list because we have a 1 month old in the house. A technician was at our house within 2 hours, was there for 20 min and the problem was fixed. Best part was the pricing... Full review ›

I woke to find a cold house. I called the phone (before hours) and had a person pick up. They had me complete some basic "check this first" items and when we did not solve, they indicated "Bob" would be out within the hour. I called back to advise on probable thermostat issue and they again had a person answer the phone on first ring.

If you need superior service this is your company!!! We were in Florida experiencing our first year as "snowbirds" when our furnace (in Bloomington) stopped working. Rick Welter personally took our call and not only sent a technician to our cold home, but checked on it for the next two days until our new heating unit could be properly installed. ... Full review ›

Our furnace started failing on us during those terribly cold negative double digit frigid winter weeks in MN where your start asking yourself simply, why do I live here? This company was friendly, understanding and promptly came out to diagnose and help with our furnace troubles. The provided large electric heaters to help us as they persevered in trying...

These guys werey second call when my furnace stopped working properly. The first company I used sent a tech out who said the furnace needed to be replaced, and gave me a quote, but said he "jiggled a wire" and got it running again for the time being.

When it went out again the other day, I called Ray N. Welter. Their tech, Ralph, fixed... Full review ›

Based on the good Yelp reviews, I called Ray Welter Heating and Cooling to come out for an estimate on a new central air unit because our older unit had a leak and the repair, as well as replacing the R-22 refrigerant, was becoming cost prohibitive. Ray Welter sent a salesman Todd to give us an estimate on a replacement. He discovered that they weren... Full review ›

I called Welter after being told by a competitor that our 20-year old HVAC system needed to be replaced, even though it is currently working just fine.

George Welter checked our equipment and the set up of our system and told us that we did not, in fact, need the to replace anything because everything is working well at this time. He spent... Full review ›

I had Welter install my AC system and so far, so good! They are really nice people and retain that old-school attempt to connect with you personally as they are a time-tested family business. They sent at least three guys to install and test my AC and they were forthcoming about information and updates. They got the work done quickly, too, like half... Full review ›

I almost gave four stars on the review due to a tech who promised to be here yesterday between 9 and noon didn't show and did not call until 12:20 to let us know they were not going to make it because of bad weather. [which we had all day] However, today's technician was very prompt knowledgeable and professional. He called this morning and showed up... Full review ›
