Clean, courteous and capable HVAC and electrical firm with 24-hour service

FR Review:
On a Sunday night during one of those 115 degree summers, it’s crucial to “have a guy” on standby in case the AC fizzles out–Kilowatt has a small fleet of those guys, who’ll deliver personalized service around the clock. There are no quick fixes or product upsells with this “top notch” HVAC and electrical firm; Kilowatt is dedicated to finding the root of the problem, no matter how many creaking attics or dark crawl spaces they have to climb through. Whether the prognosis is as simple as updating a unit or as complex as relocating the furnace, the team is fully equipped to handle each step along the way. Kilowatt also installs high-end accessories like outdoor motion sensor and LED lighting.

Since 1990 Dean Gilford has built Kilowatt’s reputation, usually with daily onsite visits to make sure every nut and bolt is up to code (and his own standards). An apprentice to his uncle by 15 and then a licensed contractor at 21, Gilford knows to look for underlying problems and foresee future solutions. He keeps five in the office and thirteen in the field during normal business hours, but there’s always someone on-call for 24-hour emergency service, at an appropriately compensating fee. Gilford offers a yearly membership bundle that includes bi-annual house-wide check-ups, preferential service and scheduling, and discounts to his competitive rates. Clients agree that there are man-in-a-van companies riding around the San Fernando Valley who could do unlicensed work for cheaper but that you're only hurting yourself in the end by not investing in a company like Kilowatt from the start. And with a crew who leaves your home better than they found it, it’s no wonder this firm is recommended to neighbors and elderly mothers alike.

Representative Client Comments:
"Right on target with budget and time." "I call them for everything: installing new products, repairing the furnace and ducts, they even check the sealing on my roof to make sure no water is getting in or air escaping." "Dean is a really nice guy who runs a tight ship." "Sure you could get it done cheaper - and unlicensed - but my philosophy is, 'don't cheat yourself, treat yourself!'" "They installed these beautiful LED lights down my driveway, even in the trees." "I have motion sensor lights in my yard that have been giving me trouble for years and running up my electric bill - Kilowatt fixed those like new and now I can have the best evening parties!" "You want to be able to have a guy you can trust, someone you know you can call up whenever, someone you can say 'yeah I have a guy for that.' They're my guys." "My neighbor told me about them and now I tell everyone else in the neighborhood." "I'm a contractor, but I'm busy. These are the guys I trust to do what I'd do when I'm not around." "Honest people, spotless work. The fees are middle of the road but more than worth it for the service."

Project Description & Comments:
If you are looking for an air conditioning contractor in Los Angeles I recommend that you call Kilowatt. I called them in a panic years ago during a heat wave when our AC conked out. They were responsive and professional. They came the same day and my home was cool that evening. I have used them and referred them many times since. They have maintained the heating and cooling system in my home, my parents home and the homes of many of my neighbors. Last year they installed a new energy-efficient system for us that has saves us money noticeably on our electric bill. I think the insulation that they put up in the attic helped too. The thing I really appreciate about Kilowatt is that they explain all my options and they are really knowledgeable about cost effective solutions.
