What others are saying about Albatross HVAC Inc.
“Albatross HVAC has provided our furnace, air conditioner, and fireplace service since we moved to the area nearly eight years ago. The time had come for us to be proactive and replace the furnace and air conditioner. There was only one company we wanted to work with — Albatross HVAC. Ryan at Albatross is an expert in HVAC, a craftsman in his trade, and a wonderful person. This was a big job from our point of view, but Ryan made it look easy. Following the estimate there was a site prep visit for a few hours one day, a solid day the next, and we had a beautiful heating and air conditioning system to meet our needs for the next couple of decades! Attention to detail was evident throughout. Cost was below our budgeted amount. Ryan took the time to explain operating features and provided what we needed for easy one-step warranty registration. We highly recommend Albatross for your HVAC needs!”

Dear Ryan, Rusti and I have relied on your services now for nearly 15 years. The relationship started shortly after we moved to Portland in 1996 when our furnace broke down in the middle of an ice storm. How lucky we were to have found you. Because of your willingness to come to our house late in the day to get our furnace working again, we have been more than happy to maintain the business relationship for all of these years. Please feel free to use us as a reference anytime either for potential new clients or an existing client that is considering a new installation. We rely on your regular servicing of both our heating and air conditioning systems to keep everything working correctly and efficiently. We are particularly appreciative of the advice and ultimate installation of the heat pump and air conditioning system that you installed a couple of years ago. Your experience and attention to detail during the planning process made for a trouble-free installation. The post installation follow up covering the learning curve we needed to operate the heat pump properly was also greatly appreciated. And equally important, we found your pricing very competitive. We could not ask for a better relationship and would strongly recommend your services to anyone considering a new heating and air conditioning system or entering into a regular service agreement.
– Sincerely yours, William G.
“To whom it may concern, this is to inform whomever is interested that Ryan Albertus of Albatross, HVAC is a trustworthy and reliable worker. We have had Ryan service the old boiler and A/C in our Convent for at least 15 years. When the boiler needed replacement, he recommended Tim at Larry and Chucks Heating and that was a good choice. Last year he added a dehumidifier to the A/C and when we wanted the A/C replaced he completed the job as quoted. When the basement was too cold with the dehumidifier running 24 hours, he oversaw the installation of water heating coils. The system operates very satisfactorily. He comes for servicing the equipment when scheduled and completes work when he promises and does not leave until you are satisfied. We would recommend Ryan to anyone.”

“Dear Ryan, this is to thank you for your wonderful work installing the Coleman 3 Ton Heat Pump and the Coleman Electric Furnace on May 26, 2011. We have not complained once about the coolness in the master bedroom and bath, a fault that we had previously complained about consistently until these new installations by you. It certainly was a good suggestion to replace the old heat pump with the next bigger sized one, as now the heat (and coolness, should the weather ever turn hot!) reaches the back of the house, which the previous unit failed to do. We also want to thank you on how you cleaned everything up – we had absolutely nothing to get rid of afterwards or any kind of mess at all. In fact, how blessed it was to see how you so carefully did not track anything inside the house, as we do live in clay country and it was a very wet day at that! You are not only good at what you do, you also do it in a neat and orderly fashion! We are so glad that we were led to have you as our maintenance person and also as the one who installed the new furnace and heat pump. We are very ‘happy campers’ now!”
– Sincerely, Gene and B.J. S.
“To whom it may concern, the is a letter of recommendation for Ryan Albertus and Albatross Heating & Air Conditioning. We first met Ryan ten years ago. We had purchased a home which had a heat pump which had been installed for the previous owner by a different company. In the previous owner’s household file, we found many service calls made by the installer over the past few years, all attempting to remedy problems with this installation. Sure enough, we found the system froze up in hot weather. Not wanting to continue with the same experience, we decided to call in someone else. We called Ryan. He diagnosed the problem, reworked some of the installation, and we had no more problems. About three years ago it was clear that the old heat pump was approaching the end of its service life. Having had such a good experience with Ryan, we decided to have him install a replacement. I think the installation was challenging – the house was built in 1946 and the original installation and duct work were for an oil furnace. None the less, Ryan installed a completely new system, including heat pump, inside unit, air handler, and backup heating. We have had the new system now for three years and it works great. Ryan services the unit about once a year for preventative maintenance. We recommend Ryan and Albatross Heating without reservation for repair, maintenance, and new installations. In fact, he is honest, reliable, diligent, and skilled. We would recommend him for any work he said he could do.”
