Charlie’s has been helping my family for years and I have met most of the team. This was the first time I have met Pete but he was prompt and very helpful with the issues I was having with my antiquated Charlie’s installed YORK*AC unit. He answered my questions and we chose the best steps forward and he provided a estimate and firm price that was accepted. I have never had a bad experience with Charle’s and Pete was great.
Excellent as always

Phil and other Charlie’s staff has been consistently wonderful with my heating / ac checks and maintenance. The service is top notch and I would recommend this to anyone, especially anyone who has ever had their ac go out in July (same day service and repair)

SJ - Carbondale, IL
I love that Charlie's is so easy to work with. The techs are quick, efficient, and pleasant. If they don't haven't answered your question, they're honest about it and then get you an answer. I honestly can't tell you how appreciative I am for that. Justin was fantastic and due to a scheduling issue on our part was willing to switch maintenance locations at the drop of a hat. Thank you so much for all you do!
Quick, Informative, and Pleasant!
James - Carbondale, IL
Charlie's H&C is always thorough and knowledgeable. If they don't have an answer they get you one in a timely fashion. They never sell you on a new product and would prefer to save you money with a repair. I have been completely satisfied with the work they've done at my 4 residences and the literal $1000s they've saved my family. Thank you so much for all you do!!!

Rankin - Carbondale, IL
Was on time. Checked furnace. Answered questions.
Complaint unit #1 not cooling..... Call Cancelled
Complaint fan stuck on Replace furnace control board
Replaced deteriorated insulation on suction line
Complaint a/c not keeping up. Found that ac is not working at all due to bad condenser fan motor. Need to replaced motor. Quoted our price to customer and he is going to talk to wife and get back to us on whether they want it replaced now or not. Let him know that signing up for PCSA would bring price of motor down, but would only cover maintenance on this specific system.
Found that system had no ac due to a bad capacitor. Replaced and verified operation. Amped out fan motor and compressor. Compressor is over amping and showing signs of going bad. Checked charge and it is good.
Complaint water issue. System Had some water backing up into the drain pan due to a clog, vacuumed and flushed out with few gallons of water. Left drain tablets and verified that it was draining.
Complaint no cool. System is low on R22 refrigerant. Started to charge system and found that pressures were not getting better. Conducted a leak search and found a leak on capillary tube coming off of piston. Verified leak with leak detector, bubbles and could also see and hear leak. Entire tube is corroding and causing multiple leaks that cannot be fixed. Indoor coil is also very corroded. I recommend a coil replacement.
PCSA heating check up. System is running efficiently at this time, heat rise is good and filters are changed by customer.
Customer thermostat is dead and wants new simple thermostat installed. Replaced thermostat and checked operation. System is operating normally at this time.
Oiled condenser fan motor which made the noise stop. Cleaned condenser coil. Checked Freon levels. System was 1.5 lbs low on R-22. System could have used more but head pressure was getting high and Freon levels were within range. System is operating normally at this time.
Complaint unit kicks off & on about 3 times before it kicks on Unit kicking out on high pressure. Liquid line restriction. Replaced filter drier underneath parts and labor warranty
Gave price to add supply duct to office
9/7/22 Complaint a/c not operating properly. Inspected middle and east systems. Middle System is operating normally. East System was completely out of Puron and needed 4 lbs to operate normally. Inspected system and found trace amounts of oil. Was not able to find an origin of the leak itself. A more thorough leak search is necessary. Evaporator coil was also very dirty and may need cleaned as well. System is operating normally otherwise. 9/8/22. Performed leak search. Found two leaks, one on the suction line core and the other coming from filter dryer. Replaced suction core. Verified it wasn’t no longer leaking. Need to replaced filter dryer on system as well. System was 1lb low on refrigerant when I got here. Added 1lb and verified operation. 9/13/22 returned and replaced filter drier, evacuated to 500 microns, recharged unit, added 4 lb r410a, system is cooling
Complaint main office no a/c Working at this time call was supposed to be cancelled friday
Unit froze up a week ago and is turned off and was making a whistling noise. Low on R-22. Monica says it’s been this way for a month or so. I told her honestly there’s no point in charging it til next year otherwise she is possibly wasting money if it all leaks out over winter. She is gonna do some thinking. I gave her many options on repairs and replacement.

They seem to be operating normally. Everything was clean and checked out well. System is operating normally at this time.
2022 Spring Check Up PCSA New NO AC - Unit not blowing air. Cause of the issue was a bad capacitor on outdoor coil. Replaced capacitor. Blower capacitor was also getting weak and needed replaced. Everything else was clean and checked out well. System is operating normally at this time.
2022 Spring Check Up PCSA New Drain for the furnace was double trapping causing water to pour in the base of the furnace. Adjusted drain line. Disconnect for outdoor coil had come detached from the post on the roof. Reattached disconnect. Main power supply for the building was laying on top of the outdoor coil. Installed rubber spacer between the wire and top of coil. This is only temporary. A more permanent fix maybe needed in the future. Everything else was clean and checked out well. System is operating normally at this time.
