The Bottom Line. Continental offers a good warranty for parts and the compressor if you register soon after purchase. The air conditioning units are solidly built and are meant to be reliable since the brand truly cares about their customers.
What can I say? This company is incredible!!! Jeff came out the day before and tried to service our old air conditioner on it's last legs and milked it for one night to allow us to be able to get a new system in the next day. Martin and Bogdan were precise, efficient, and extremely professional. I can't recommend this company enough. What could have turned into a disaster with us having to stay at a hotel ended up being saved at the last minute with a brand new system sitting on a hurricane slab. The air started immediately dropping the minute the new system turned on. And they also didn't sell me on what I didn't need they were extremely informative so that I got exactly what I needed. They were dog friendly super respectful and they Treated my house like they're own:)
My aunt Brandi had bought a new Bryant air conditioning system from continental and the AC works amazing. Her thermostat was as 77 and within 2 minutes it dropped to 75. The 2 gentlemen who installed the unit were very friendly and knowledgable and installed it quickly and cleaned up. The pricing is very competitive with other places She called and the service was excellent. The owner even called the same day to check on how it was running and to see how her service experience was. I would recommend them to anyone I know who needs repair or a new unit. Keep up the great work!
We can't say enough nice things about Continental. Our AC went out on a Saturday night and we asked to have someone come out the next day. They were there on time and gave us several options to fix our issue. We opted to have the whole heating/cooling system upgraded and it was completely finished Monday afternoon. I'd recommend them to anyone wanting different price points to choose from, rather than a "one size fits all" type of sales pitch that some companies throw at you. Thank you SO much!
I own 13 rental properties so I have a lot of dealing with contractors and when I meet the owner of Continental I knew right away he was a pro and made feel confident in is ability and honesty to work on my personal home he gave me a great price on a name brand system and was done on time and didn't try and find any other problems to make extra money and another important thing to me he's employees are also pros unlike some company's that you want to hose off and watch every minute .
