Client Testimonials

This was a good experience. They showed up when promised and worked hard while they were here. I had purchased through them and they also did the installation. They removed the old unit once the work was done. A few days later, we found a faulty switch and they came right out and fixed the issue immediately. They were just great to work with and very friendly to work with.

Sarah C , Baltimore

I have used them for installation of units and also maintenance. Everything turned out fine and I would use them again. The crew they have are very thorough and easy to work with. I just use them when I need and they also explain the work they are doing. Appointments are easy to set up. I see no room for improvements and have been happy with their work.

Rebecca S., Potomac, MD

They were great! I saw them on Angie’s List and also got a personal reference for their work. The system was purchased through them and they have different models with different prices. I chose a high efficiency system. I had no issues with the installation at all. Once the work was done, they even hauled away the old unit. They did exceptional work and would call on them for any future needs. The crew was just really friendly and worked well together.

Milena S, Hyattsville, MD

They have done several things for me over the years. Most recently, they upgraded my A/C system to a three zone system. I highly recommend him to others. His work ethic is very good as well. His pricing is very competitive. I do not even shop around anymore since I know he gives a good rate and does a great job. He and his employees are very professional, courteous and also clean when they work. He really goes above and beyond compared to other contractors I have used.

Patrick N., Falls Church, VA

Outstanding. They came out to look at our system the day after we made the initial phone call, and they drafted up a proposal and bid within a couple of days. The work was done a week later and the system is working much better. Everyone was professional and punctual.

Jayson D, Washington, DC

I am a contractor and have used them on several occasions. Their saying”honest work at fair prices” is a perfect description for them.. On occasion I have to get several estimates for my jobs and Rubio Mechanical are always lower than the others. You will not be disappointed in their work (or prices).

Gustavo G., Washington, DC

I had them look at my HVAC system as the AC unit outside is not sitting level and I was worried that it would not operate well that way. It is 16 years old and had slowly tilted due to erosion. I wanted to know what it would cost to level the equipment and whether I should consider replacing the system altogether rather than spend a fair amount for the leveling work (as the system would have to be disconnected, coolant removed, etc.) I was a little worried that it might fail at an extremely hot or cold time and I’d be without HVAC. Long story short, Rubio said I should leave well enough alone. The leveling process might actually cause problems in a system which was operating just fine at this point. And he did not recommend replacing it until it fails even tho there is some risk I could be without HVAC for a short time when that happens. So he recommended that I leave it alone. Good advice I think. I was very happy with his practical and honest approach. Cost nothing. I did want him to service the system, but I never got back to him to schedule that … so that’s on me, not him.

Joan F., Dunn Loring, VA

The day before closing on a condo I was purchasing, there were issues identified with the AC in the final inspection. I needed to have the unit inspected for leaks and other issues as soon as possible (before closing). I called several HVAC companies and was not able to find one that could respond quickly. I contacted Rubio Mechanical the night before (approximately 9:30pm). Rubio Mechanical immediately responded and was able come out the very next day at approximately 11am. Miguel of Rubio Mechanical conducted a thorough inspection of the AC unit. He confirmed there were no leaks and also checked the furnace. He identified issues (coils needed to be cleaned/small air leak that had been taped up) that needed to be addressed. We were able to close on that same day. I would also like to note that Miguel is very professional, courteous extremely honest and humble. I will definitely be using Rubio Mechanical for all of my HVAC needs going forward.

3 Heating Zones. We asked RUBIO Mechanical to turn our single zone baseboard heating system to a 3 zone system, featuring a thermostat for each zone. I was especially picky that when finished, the zone valves and all the hardware that was added would be easy to access for service AND look nice. RUBIO Mechanical actually appreciated the challenge! They installed the zone hardware, it works, it is easy to access and quite nice to look at! During the install they discovered issues with the electrical relay on the furnace, at my request they renewed that and also the pump, labor for the the additional items was highly discounted since they were on-site already. RUBIO Mechanical is my favorite team, they will be coming on site again soon to upgrade our water heater to a state of the art in-line water heating system.There was good communication, timely arrival of techs. We had changes, and the principal stopped by to review and make sure all would flow smoothly. And it did!

Ramon S, Washington, DC

Overall the job was great and very professional. We couldn’t have been more pleased. Mr. Rubio was promt in meeting us at the appointed time and he was able to complete the job quickly once we agreed upon a date. He took extra care to provide additional insulation for our duct work which will also improve the airflow in addition to the fan installation. They were very clean and removed all of the work debrie once the job was finished. I also appreciate that we were able to communicate via email for appointments and with invoicing. We would highly recommend Rubio Mechanical again.

I don’t usually write reviews for home service companies, but had such a good recent experience, I felt like others in DC, MD, and VA might benefit from hearing about it: Our heating system stopped working sometime overnight on Sunday. With impending cold weather, I was worried about frozen feet (and pipes)! I called the HVAC company that we had a service contract with for priority service and left a message early Monday morning. I also reached out to Rubio Mechanical at the same time. (I had heard about them through a friend.) It took about a half day for the company we had a contract with to get back to me by phone. Within the time I received a call back from them, the friendly team at Rubio Mechanical had already sent someone to my house to help us out. Thank you, Erin! The person they sent over (Adolfo) was professional, friendly, and knew what he was doing. He listened to the two details I was able to give him and got right down to business. He pinpointed and fixed the problem with out heating system quickly. He didn’t try to upsell me on anything and was a pleasure to deal with. Their rates were very reasonable too. As a result, my husband and I decided to ask Rubio Mechanical for a service contract for our HVAC system. Turns out they have 3 tiers for us to choose from. We are delighted to have found the good people from Rubio Mechanical!

Kevin K., Annandale, VA

They did a fantastic job (minimizing the drywall cutting) and cleaned up after very nicely. I am very pleased with their work, and Miguel’s idea.

Mike D., Falls Church, VA

I recently had an old condensate / humidifier discharge line that developed a pin hole leak. I called my HVAC team at Rubio Mechanical and told them I wanted to fix the leak, and then remove the old plastic tubing on the outside of the house and replace with PVC pipe. Miguel the owner said I have a better idea. He said they had access, so why not just repair it and run it to an adjacent drain pipe inside the house. What a great idea! No more freezing pipe on the outside or condensate and humidifier discharge getting dumped out by my AC unit. Derek and Adolfo came out and knocked this work out in record time and cleaned up very nicely. I am very pleased with their work, and Miguel’s idea. I recently signed up for a Bronze service contract with Rubio Mechanical and have been pleased with their service so far, and would recommend them for your HVAC needs.
