Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Wow, an amazing company, friendly staff and excellent work at a fair price! I would rate them higher than five stars if I could! They always put the customer first, and everyone should use them when they have plumbing and heating needs. If I ever need plumbing needs in the future, they are my first call!” – M.C.

Not Your Average HVAC Company

The team at Extreme Heating and Air is always punctual, and they make it a point to show up for every job in 30 minutes or less and in uniform, no matter what. Regardless of what the job is, they overwhelm their customers with a great experience. Their years of experience also help to set them apart from other HVAC companies.

Shane, the owner of Extreme Heating and Air, graduated in 1986 and was searching for his career path when he started learning about HVAC. Since HVAC was the largest-growing industry, Shane decided to go for it. He joined the Air Force to learn his trade, and Extreme Heating and Air has been growing and expanding their services ever since.

Building Success With a Great Team

When asked about Extreme Heating and Air’s secret to such a strong online reputation, Shane credits the fact he hires good guys and takes great care of them by offering benefits, incentives and a vested interest in the company:

“They don’t work for me; they work with me!”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Extreme Heating and Air has grown through word of mouth, their nice building — which is located in the center of town — and the clean, wrapped vehicles that each tech drives.

There are so many other business owners out there working on growing their business and building their online reputation. Here’s Shane’s expert advice for those business owners:

“It all comes down to the people. You’re only as strong as the weakest link. Don’t just go off their resume! I’d rather hire a really good person with no experience and train them than someone with a huge resume who doesn’t live up to our service standards.”


Congratulations to the team at Extreme Heating and Air Inc. for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Shane, for taking the time to speak with us!

“I have been using Ratterree for 10 years and they are the best. I got a call at one point from one of my customers who had gotten a quote for repairing a heating issue, but when I sent Ratterree out to get the issue fixed they were able to properly diagnose the problem and ended up saving them some money so I know I can completely trust them. I also had an occasion where we had 7 air conditioning units stolen in the middle of August and they really went way above and beyond to get them all replaced and back up and running within 3 days. I just couldn’t speak higher of these guys, I highly recommend them to others.” -Carl B.

I still do service calls with techs to ensure things are right, and if I’m troubleshooting something over the phone and it’s not getting done correctly, I will personally visit the job and handle the issue.”

Building Success Through Integrity

‘“We recently had American Air replace two furnaces and two heat pumps in our home. We were beyond pleased with the results. The five folks that we had in our home during the one-and-a-half-day install were very professional, pleasant, and respectful of our home. There are not enough words to say how much we appreciated and enjoyed having them out here. I would highly recommend Dan and his team to anyone that is considering an upgrade, repair, or quote. They got it done in less time than anticipated, and left everything neat and clean. Thank you, [American Air Heating and Cooling team]. You are truly the best.” -Peggie V.

“Dan was able to come out right away and look at what kind of updating we could do for [our] fireplace. [The] next day, he [sent] a photo of what he thought I was looking for. He was correct, the install was nice and clean, and he gave us step-by-step [instruction] on how to use our new gas fireplace. Thank you!” -Scott B.

“We had our furnace put in by Dan two years ago. He did an amazing job [and] was polite and efficient. Recently, we had to make a call for a question about our furnace. Dan immediately called back and was here at my home first thing to look at it. [I] would definitely recommend American Air Heating and Cooling to anyone!” -Val C.

A One-of-a-Kind HVAC Company’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Our team spoke with Dan Riener, the owner of American Air Heating and Cooling, about his business’ stellar online reputation.

Washington’s Top Rated Local® HVAC Award Winner: McFarland Heating and Air

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that McFarland Heating and Air is a 2018 award winner!

With an average rating of 5.00 stars and a 97.00 Rating Score™, McFarland Heating and Air has earned a spot among the top 10 HVAC companies in Washington. These are three of the positive reviews that got them here:

“Howard came out today for an annual furnace inspection. He was on time, professional, and very courteous. Howard provided expert advice and took the time to answer all of my questions. I couldn’t be happier and will definitely use them in the future for all of my HVAC needs. Bonus points to McFarland for working on Saturdays and Sundays!” -K.M

“My furnace didn’t seem to start and Howard came out to my property the same day, only to confirm that nothing appeared to be wrong with it other than that a cover may not have been put back on right after I had checked the filters. He didn’t even charge for the service call, as their business is close [to] my house. I will definitely call on them again if something actually will need repairing!” -A.J

“These guys are great. Fast, friendly, affordable and knowledgeable. After a week of freezing in our house and calling various other service providers, they came out within a couple of hours and fixed our furnace problem (a broken igniter) in 30 minutes. They also cleaned some of the other furnace parts, explained everything to us in detail and charged us a price that was lower than their competitors. Recommended this small company to all of my family and friends and would use them again without hesitation.” -J.L

Not Your Average HVAC Company

Howard McFarland, owner of McFarland Heating and Air, took some time to chat with us.

When asked what sets his business apart from other HVAC companies, he said, “The truth is, bigger companies will answer service requests by sending out a salesperson. That salesperson has a quota they have to meet, so they will bid the job based on the maximum amount of money they can squeeze out of you. After they sell you, you’ll never hear from them again. We don’t make a living out of selling people something they really don’t need, so we try very hard to match every customer with what they need. The square footage of a house can make a big difference as to what kind of unit they need, and an elderly woman living alone in a trailer simply does not need the top of the line, industrial sized unit.”

Building Success Through Honesty and Hard Work

So, why do Howard and his team do what they do? “We actually do help people. And that is satisfying work. I worked at a bigger company one time that had a guy charge someone $500 when the only thing wrong was the person accidentally tripped a breaker and the A/C turned off. That’s wrong. We would rather help that person fairly now and hope that we can earn their business in the future.”


Thanks for speaking with us, Howard. Congratulations to the team at McFarland Heating and Air for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

For expert HVAC services in Snohomish, we highly recommend McFarland Heating and Air.
