Jon is awesome. He came out multiple times to diagnose and repair our furnace. We’ve had years of problem but he is the only one who didn’t try to sell us a brand new system. Highly recommended.

Fast , inexpensive, personal , professional service. I would recommend this man and his business to anyone. He had parts on hand and had my house cooled down in a matter of minutes. He obviously cares about his work.

Jon came out the day of to repair our air conditioner. He did a great job and fast and had all of the parts on hand that were needed. He had to access our attic and even cleaned up the white sprinkled mess that was made removing the ceiling entry panel. Most contractors I have hired never clean that up. I was very impressed. I would recommend them and would hire them again.

My house has been a ice locker all winter, we have had two companies out to look at the equipment. The first company that came out showed up 2 hours late and said they could not fix or work on the system but it should be replaced. Not to mention the insane cost they wanted to do the work. The second company was a bit better as they tried to fix the equipment for couple hours but no luck. I was giving up to old man winter when I checked into the Yelp site and found Specialized Mechanical. OMG
I love these guys!!! The system did not have to be replaced, but there were two parts to be replaced, they ordered the parts and were back in two days!! Wala we have heat again!! Jon and Dave are wonderful to work with! Excellent communication, knowledge….
and professionalism. We have found our go to guys for heating and air. Oh ya thanks for finding me a honest plumber JON!!

Specialized Mechanical did a bang-up grand job of finding a difficult to diagnose problem that only happened on occasion. Dave Perez, their technician was persistent, starting the heater over and over until he got it to fail so he could determine the source of the problem. He had to order the part unfortunately, but it came quickly and he returned to get it installed right away. He is a very friendly, professional gentleman of the highest caliber.
I have to say, his visit and insistence getting to the bottom of this problem was a breath of fresh air, as our insurance company had first sent Quality Mechanical who found no trouble on the first visit, but insisted it needed a $97 cleaning (not covered by insurance). On the second visit, he insisted the problem was a part that I was positive had nothing to do with the problem we were experiencing. Of course, it failed again after he left. We refused a third visit from them, paid the insurance company the deductible to send someone other than Quality, and lucked into Specialized and Dave. They have our highest recommendation.

My home was hotter than a Cancun club during spring break so something had to be done. I have a new home, and after a failed attempt to fix the heat from the builder, I could not take it anymore. I went to Yelp and found Specialized Mechanical. They keep very busy – so Jon asked me if this could wait a few days since there was a cold spell going on and this was not critical. Jon and team showed up during the specified time (which was at 6pm) and I appreciated the later time slot. They were very nice and took time to review my heating system, make the necessary corrections, and explain my next options if necessary. It seems they got it right the first go around. They were here for about an hour and the system is much much better! Very balanced, much more quiet, and I am extremely pleased. I will absolutely call Specialized Mechanical for any future needs.

Having spent the last 6 months dealing with contractors on a rehab of our new house, Jon and company are a breath of fresh air!!! PROMPT, PROFESSIONAL, FAIR and willing to listen and explain the problems and systems.
We have had him work on two different houses and in both cases the issues were dealt with quickly and at a fair price. Recently, we had a board go out on one unit and it was a couple days to order and they were back out to repair, excellent follow up. Try them, you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Specialized Mechanical.

Jon and his crew at Specialized Mechanical are great! They arrived on time and did the work they promised in a timely manner. I am completely comfortable having them in my home and would gladly recommend them to anyone looking to have work done on their heating or air conditioning.

Amazing company. I found Specialized Mechanical on yelp and i was not let down. I spoke to Jon this morning at 10:30am and he was out at my house at 12:30. It is an extremely busy time of year especially with the cold snap so that was amazing he was able to fit me in. I was told by SDG&E that our Igniter had to be replaced, when Jon and his tech came out they found that it was only the sensor that needed to be cleaned. He also noticed that our furnace model was recalled at one point so he did the necessary safety checks and looks like we are safe. Jon suggested that we start budgeting for a new furnace in the next couple years but also said if its not broke, do not fix it. I love the fact that he did not try to up sell!!!! His honesty and professionalism was very refreshing. He will differently have my business again. Thanks Guys you made my day ๐Ÿ™‚

We had four furnace repair/replacement companies come look at our gas furnace which had stopped working on Christmas Day. The first company told us it could not be fixed and tried to get us to sign up that day for a replacement, and the next two wanted to sell us replacements at a cost of $1500-$2000. When Jon arrived he just got to work and quickly replaced a couple of parts he thought were the culprits. While it turned out they were not, he did find the problem ( a tiny safety device that looked like it may have been tripped because the filter was dirty) and he uninstalled the new parts and charged us only $200 for the whole repair. He said we would likely get another 5 years out of our furnace! I would highly recommend Jon and his team as they were professional, direct, quick and honest.

Specialized Mechanical (Jon and company) provided quality work and friendly service on a furnace repair.In the winter, our 30 year old furnace caught fire (build up of pet hair, etc.), Jon promptly restored the functionality by replacing the motor. We also really appreciated that we asked if we should replace the furnace with central air and he said it was not worth it.I was nervous about selecting an HVAC company, but would have no reservations, and feel good about recommending Specialized Mechanical to anyone.

Kevin R.San Diego, CA (yelp)

After reading other reviews about these guys here on Yelp I gave Jon a call. I am glad I did! He and Dave came out and fixed my furnace in about an hour and a half. The price? Excellent! These young guys are honest, intelligent, clean and hard working. They know what they are doing and they are old school. That means they do a job right the first time and do not fool around and overcharge. I will use them again in the Spring to check out my air conditioning system. But most of all, I highly recommend them to anybody who wants a first class job done by some very nice guys. Thanks Jon and Dave! ๐Ÿ™‚

Steve R. San Marcos, CA (yelp)

My 25 year + heating and air conditioning was giving up the ghost. I had a couple of repair estimates that were, to put it mildly, ridiculous (both in price and identified issues). I had estimates to replace the whole thing (condenser and furnace) and Specialized Mechanical won my business with their no-nonsense approach and their willingness to work on different price option/combinations. New equipment was installed Monday and I could not be happier. Their work is clean, clean, and clean. They keep to their word, show up on time and their work is professional. Pricing is excellent.
One of the things that differentiate Jon and his company from other tradesmen is that he reads and promptly answers (that night) e-mail! This might seem like no big deal to some, but to me it is a huge deal as all communication, negotiation etc. is done promptly, a record of such is established, and it imbues a sense of trust. I have worked with others who apparently think e-mail is only useful to spam me with the latest deals, coupons, fall specials and whatnot, and can only be bothered to communicate over the phone. Not Jon. These guys are great!

Joe H. Carlsbad, CA (yelp)

Jon came out and quickly diagnosed our problem, which was on the breaker panel and not HVAC related. A less reputable firm might have tried to charge for some unneeded repairs, but that is not the case here. I will not hesitate to use them in the future…

Michael C. Carlsbad, CA (yelp)

I called Jon this morning b/c my heater was acting up. We scheduled an appointment (same day), and he and his associate came to my home, diagnosed the problem and had my heater up and running in no time at all. Both Jon and his associate were professional (called to let me know he was on his way), respectful, friendly and tidy. There were no upsells or pressure. Excellent customer service and Jon certainly knew what he was doing and did it at a reasonable rate. I would not hesitate to recommend Specialized Mechanical to my friends and neighbors, and should I ever need a new heater, this is the company I will call.

Paula V. CARDIFF, CA (yelp)

As long as Jon is still working in HVAC, I will never ever call anyone else. Specialized Mechanical has saved me a bundle of money twice now, once for the air conditioning unit at my house and the second time for the furnace at my office. Trust me, I called several different HVAC repair companies when my air conditioning was not working and Jon was definitely the most prompt to return my calls and gave me by far the most reasonable price for the repair job. It is amazing that some companies can get away with charging three times the amount that Jon charges for a job that he does quickly and exceedingly well, and still be in business. I think it is pretty rare to come across such an honest person in this line of work and, as a customer, I really appreciate the fact that Jon never tries to up-sell but always tries to find you the best and most economical way of fixing something. Go with Jon of Specialized Mechanic once and I am sure you will never need another HVAC repair company.

Jain E. San Diego, CA (yelp)

We had a small job done by John from Specialized Mechanical today. What a pleasure it was…here is what we received: a fair estimate, a phone call prior to the appointment time to let us know he would be on time, quick but thorough work, and explanations of the work without using industry jargon. This firm delivers the goods. We will refer all our friends to SM with total confidence.

Jon came out to take at a room that was not receiving much air flow. It was an add-on to the existing house so the duct path was not original nor was it intended for the room at all. They were extremely professional during their inspection talking with me about all the possible causes and potential solutions. He came back at a later date to install a booster fan in the room which works great so far and my tenants have not complained. He was not able to get the booster fan hooked up to turn on with the central air (not their fault), but they did hook up to a switch inside the room. I would recommend them to anyone needing HVACs service and would use them again.

I had a problem with the ac in a rental unit of mine. Jon scheduled an appointment with my tenant and got the repairs to my 32 year old unit done quickly. He seemed honest gave me a ballpark idea of how much longer the unit will be useful and the various options I would have if it goes out again (replacing certain parts vs the whole system).

Brian L. Los Angeles, CA (yelp)

The company is one person (Jon) who was absolutely fantastic. We had three quotes for our heating system which did not work upon purchase (the house was a foreclosure). First quote was $5000 for fixing, sealing and cleaning ducting (built in 1995). Second quote was up to $11,000 to replace the whole unit. We called Jon at 2:30pm in the afternoon, he was out within an hour and had the whole thing fixed and sealed (and he cleaned up after himself) for under $400 by 4:30 pm. Honest, professional, patient and highly highly recommended. Did not try to sell me services that were not necessary. Do yourself a favor and hire this guy. The other reviewers are absolutely spot on!

Kacy W. Oceanside, CA (yelp)

Prompt response, no delays. AC unit was moved to a new location – very neat and clean job.
