Hands down the most trustworthy HVAC company in town. Technician John was able to diagnose and correct brand-new mini-split unit that had been installed wrong by another company. He explained everything in detail while he was here and took the time to ensure everything was correct before he left.

Anthony Pillars appliance tech came out today and troubleshooting are gas oven for not heating properly. He found that the starter was not working properly and replaced it with a new one. Works great like new, he carried the replacement parts and was done in no time. I recommend them for your appliances repair!

Damien from Pillar HVAC responded promptly to my request for a second opinion concerning the furnace at our 11 year old home in Coeur d'Alene which we were told by another service provider was in need of replacement due to the estimated $3,028 cost of repairing it. Within less than 45 minutes Damien had identified and replaced the failed low voltage contactor which brought both the air conditioner and furnace back into full operation! I can't thank Damien and Pillar HVAC enough for their prompt and efficient service. I am deeply appreciative of the professional staff at Pillar HVAC! - Brentt Ramharter

Had Pillar install a new coil unit for my air conditioner. Excellent service, they troubleshot the issue, made recommendations on repair/replace. Replacing the faulty part instead of replacing the complete system saved a considerable amount of $$$. Installers were professional and courteous. Very satisfied with the whole process highly recommend them gir your heating,cooling solutions.

I called Pillar the morning that we discovered that that our refrigerator was warm. Todd came before lunch to determine the cause which was a fan that need to be replaced. He ordered the fan before he left the house.When he had the fan Todd returned and installed it. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and answered all of my questions.I will use Pillar again as needed.

Our stove/oven went out on a Saturday morning. I called Pillar Appliance expecting to leave a voicemail and hear back from them on Monday. About an hour later the owner called me back, set up an appointment for Monday morning. The service technician, Anthony Cranford, came out diagnosed the problem. He had to order a part, but came back the next morning and made the repair. Anthony was great! We have used Pillar Appliance several times and will continue to do so.

Pillar Heating Air Appliance Repair in Coeur d’Alene Idaho has helped me with all my needs. I have a gas fire place and it decided to stop working so I called these guys. They were very professional quick to respond quick to come out to my house to repair the stove and very friendly and professional and affordable. John was the tech that came out two times and diagnosed the Gas stove as well as fixed it and educated me as well about it. If you need someone to come and fix your stove call Pillar and ask for John. He knows his stuff, he’s very intelligent, friendly professional, and gets the job done hands-down. I can’t thank him enough for what he’s done.

Called for pre-season AC maintenance/service and got an appointment for the next morning. I got a text the next morning saying John was on his way, with his photo. He arrived on time and got right to work. He explained everything he was doing, showed me the multimeter readings and the normal ranges listed on the AC unit, then explained what MUST be replaced, what SHOULD be replaced, and left it up to me to decide. No hard sell for a new unit or any services I didn't need. The bill was very reasonable, and John left me with some basic maintenance tasks that I can perform. I'm glad I called Pillar for this service.

Pillar was outstanding, as was the service technician Todd S! I called regarding my dryer. I was scheduled the same day for an appointment & they asked for the model number of my appliance ahead of time. They sent a text with the name and a photo of the service technician when he was on his way. He was very thorough diagnosing the issue & even had the part to replace with him. My dryer was fixed & operational SAME DAY!!

This morning we woke up to a non-functioning furnace. Given the cold spell that's taken over North Idaho, I assumed I was looking at a multi-day wait for a technician to look at our furnace.I remember that I had met Damien some years ago at an event, and figured I'd give Pillar a shot.The receptionist was kind, friendly, fast - took my information and let me know a time that a technician would come by. Not only did I have a same day appointment, they were able to make it an hour early.John was my repair tech he had the issue diagnosed within 15 minutes, frozen condensation lines in the furnace, and gave me detailed advice on how to resolve the issue. There was no high pressure upsell for parts, just simple practical help.I'd highly recommend Pillar Heating and Air to anyone looking for a trustworthy, friendly, upfront repair company. I was thoroughly impressed.Great job!

Truly a five star experience. Repair on our oven was what we thought it might be and price that Pillar had estimated as typical was where it came in. Communication with office was timely and excellent. Loved Anthony, our tech. We've had plenty of appliance repairs in North Idaho and this was our best experience. Never look forward to repairs but look forward to using Pillar again!

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I cover my outdoor unit in the fall and winter?

Covering the outdoor unit in the winter months prevents unwanted debris from accumulating on the outdoor unit and later impeding airflow to the outdoor unit. At the same time accidentally operating the outdoor unit with a covering in place could cause system damage. It is recommended that high voltage power always be disconnected from the outdoor unit whenever a cover or anything obstructing airflow is introduced.

So does it save energy to close vents in unused rooms?

The answer, unfortunately, is no. You are better off keeping the vents open to ensure the unit operates efficiently. Closing vents impedes the systems designed airflow requirements which can cause premature failure. You could get away with partially closing vents to satisfy individual comfort needs. This way over the lifetime of your system you can save on energy use and repair costs.

I feel like my A/C isn’t working, what can I check?

First check your thermostat set points, is it set to “cool?” Are the batteries new? Is the filter clean? Is the furnace blower running? Is the outdoor unit running? Although you as the homeowner might not be able to address all these things on your own, they will help your technician diagnose the problem much quicker and might actually be able to advise you over the phone on the next step as the homeowner.
