I’ve been looking into having mini splits installed in my house for a while now. Highly recommend Superior Co-Op with them being a Diamond dealer. Dan our sales rep took his extra time talking us through pricing and what it all entails. Was really satisfied with the installation. Tom, Donovan, and Ricky were all professional. They were polite and respectful and really took there time. In 3 days they installed 4 mini splits and 2 heat pumps. This whole experience has been great and I would recommend Superior Co-Op to anyone looking into the idea of mini splits.

We had a great experience with the Scoop team. From the start with Rebecca on the estimates and early information to help us make a decision to the install team. Everyone was friendly and through and did a quality job. The installation was very well done. While not the cheapest solution we are very happy with the result.

I had mini splits installed for my garage and the living space above the garage. Superior Co-Op was fantastic. My uncle had his system installed by Superior Co-Op and recommended them. Absolutely no complaints. They made sure we were on the same page through the whole process. If you're considering doing mini splits definitely check them out as the NYS rebates are good and Superior takes care of it.

Superior HVAC designed, quoted and installed a whole house heating/cooling ductless system. The design and quoting process was professional and timely, pricing fell within the middle of three quotes from multiple contractors. Why I decided to go with Superior was the brand (Mitsubishi) and the fact that they did a proper heat loss study to ensure the home will be heated, they also rolled rebates into the bottom line. The gentleman that installed the system were professional and neat, it did take a week and a half to complete the install due to snow storms, so this was not the companies fault. If I could give 4.5 stars, I would. The only reason I am giving 4 stars is due to some issues with the units themselves. This might not fall directly on Superior, but they were issues none the less. Two of the outdoor compressors had open technical issues (firmware did not work correctly), the system still worked, however created loud noises during heating cycles. This was a known issue that we found out after the install was complete (a Mitsubishi rep came 2.5 weeks after install to perform firmware update). Just after the firmware was updated, the main compressor for the 3 largest rooms in our home had an error code, turned out that the power board stopped working. Superior's service team did clear their schedule to correct this and will be installing a new part shortly. Overall, if you are looking for a market priced system with a service team that backs their product, look no further then Superior.

With the inefficiencies of electric resistance heating and the unfortunate rise in home heating oil over the last year, I struggled to learn which alternative source of energy might be most cost-effective, exploring a host of options available to me. Finally settling on heat pump technology, I drew from a list of installers that National Grid had assembled, businesses that work directly with NYS rebates, minimizing the personal burden of paperwork filing. From this list, I examined several offerings, landing on Superior Co-Op HVAC. I quickly learned to look no further. Not only did they provide Mitsubishi, manufacturer of the highest quality systems in the industry, but their business model emphasizing integrity and attention to customer and community, won me over. I am also a business owner, and from our inception in 1973, people have been the priority. Sure, we are here to make money, but the atmosphere we create in the process is of the greatest measurable value. I began with a mini split installation in the corporate office, attached to our home. The installation was a challenging one in that the structure was built in 1840, with two additions over the years. This meant that running the power would prove problematic. We settled on the placement of the exterior heat pump and interior wall mount, hoping for a clear line of sight to run the electric. This proved far too complicated given the crawl space under that area of the home. The Superior Co-Op HVAC techs did what they could to minimize the appearance of an alternative outdoor conduit. But, in the end, I just couldn’t live with the results. I have to say, these guys are the most understanding and accommodating team you can hope to work with. After exploring a number of differing options, we settled on one that eliminated what I knew would eventually feel to me like an eyesore. They made the extra trip, put in the extra work, and made this customer appreciative and 100% satisfied! Who did I work with? Austin in sales and consulting is an absolutely stand-up-guy, one any boss would want on his team. Glen was lead on overall management and troubleshooting. You could not ask for a more knowledgeable and considerate contributor to decision making. Trevor, Cliff, and a number of others, the names of whom unfortunately escape me now, were the most polite and diligent installers. You want these guys on your job. I briefly met owner, Gerry Davis, along the way. But honestly, watch the promo video on the company website. You will know Gerry, you will know why his company works, and you will know why they are poised to capture major market share in heat pump installation in the areas they service. View the video, every impression is family, and in my book, that cultivation of cohesive character and competence is paramount when you are talking business. Ahhh… but am I saving? Is this technology as efficient as advertised? Yes, and Yes! It has only been several months, but they have been very cold months and Mitsubishi has risen to the challenge drawing heat out of sometimes subzero exterior air and warming my office at a significant savings over every season I can recall. I decided on Mitsubishi because of their reputation for patented quality. I came to Superior Co-Op HVAC because they seemed competent, genuine, and state of the art. I will stay with Superior Co-Op HVAC because they have met every one of those criteria. I cannot recommend them more highly.

I waited a couple of months to get an accurate read on my new heat pumps. I started out talking to Matthew. He did a great job walking me through the entire process, from what would work to heat my house efficiently, placement, size, type, and btus, he kept me posted on when my equipment was arriving for the installation and was available anytime I needed to have a question answered. The install happened in early November. Greg was my next line of communication. Also very knowledgeable, and helped me get things scheduled and going with my weird work schedule. Came to my house walked through, took note of where to place the indoor and outdoor units for best efficiency and did a great job as well The work crew was amazing. They were fast. Worked hard. Explained everything they were doing ( boy sounds like I bugged people alot 😀) They got job done a day sooner than was planned, and they worked so cleanly I didn't have to clean up after they left. Looked like they hadn't ever been there! What a great job all the way around. As for the heat pumps themselves. I love them. They work great. Keep my house at a nice steady temp. I will say I need to upgrade my insulation. My house is from the 1800s so it's drafty. My electric bill did go up. Which is going to happen. But it went up by an amount that is actually saving me several hundred dollars since i haven't had to turn on my oil furnace or propane fireplaces. We have had some good cold days and the temps stay right about where I want it. This company is great. Did an amazing job and well worth the investment! I'm so glad I pulled the trigger on these and talked to Matthew.

On February 11, 2022 Matthew Godfrey and Dan Davis arrived in the aftermath of a snow storm and went through my house to take measurements, look for places for Minisplit heat pump installation , and showed me all Mitsubishi heating and cooling options. An engineering report was generated , but at that time I could not afford a complete heating system and opted for one minisplit installation that was in the one spot that needed the greatest cooling and heating attention. That was installed in May of 2022. Matt followed up every step of the way and was fully supported by the team at Superior Co-Op HVAC. The installation was fast, efficient and attractive inside and out. I highly recommend Superior Co-OP HVAC for all Mitsubishi heating and cooling needs.

Hot Water Heaters Services – Installation & Repair

Your water heater is most likely located in your basement, and it will look like a large metal cylinder that can hold anywhere from 40 to 60 gallons (variant based on the size of your home and home much hot water you may need at one time). Inside this tank is a variety of parts, valves and pipes which all work together in a system in order to heat your water to the right temperature and then distribute it to various areas of your home when needed.

Cost is as low as $9.00 a month and there are rebates offered by National Grid. *Restrictions apply.

Hot Water Tanks

Water heaters with tanks usually heat a certain amount of water and keep it hot until a faucet in your home needs it, at which point it sends out the heated water. However, there are tankless water heaters, that heat the water as needed, making the hot-water-response time much slower, but also meaning that you’ll never “run out” of hot water.

Contact us today to find out which type you have, which would be most efficient for your home, and for water heater repair, installation or update. With years of experience and a passion for what we do, we are always Saratoga Springs, Ballston Lake, and the Capitol Region’s favorite HVAC company.

We are happy to service and install A.O. Smith brand water heaters.

Hybrid Hot Water Heaters

Hybrid hot water heaters, also known as hybrid electric heat pump water heaters, are a type of water heater that use both electric and heat pump technology to heat water. They are designed to be more energy-efficient than traditional electric water heaters, and can provide hot water at a lower cost.

In a hybrid hot water heater, a heat pump is used to extract heat from the air or ground and transfer it to the water in the tank. This is more efficient than using electricity to directly heat the water, as the heat pump can move heat from a lower temperature source to a higher temperature one. The heat pump is assisted by electric heating elements when the water temperature in the tank falls below a certain level, ensuring that hot water is always available.

Advantages of hybrid hot water heaters include:

  1. Energy Efficiency: Hybrid hot water heaters are designed to be more energy-efficient than traditional electric water heaters, which can save you money on your energy bills.
  2. Environmentally Friendly: By using less electricity to heat water, hybrid hot water heaters can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help protect the environment.
  3. Quiet Operation: Hybrid hot water heaters are usually quiet in operation, which can be a big advantage over traditional water heaters.
  4. Long Lifespan: Hybrid hot water heaters are designed to last longer than traditional electric water heaters, which can save you money in the long run.

Overall, hybrid hot water heaters can be a great choice for homeowners who want to save money on their energy bills and reduce their environmental impact. It’s always best to consult with a professional plumber or HVAC contractor to determine the best solution for your specific needs and situation.

What are the signs of a hot water heater going bad?

7 Tell-tale signs of a Water Heater not working You don’t have enough hot water. You have varying water temperature issues. You have a leaking water heater. You notice reduced water flow. You’re hearing some concerning sounds. You have smelly or discolored water. Your water heater is on the older end of the spectrum.

How long do hot water heaters usually last?

Between 6 and 13 years It would be nice to know when the time is right to replace your water before it springs a leak and causes an inconvenience or worse yet, damage to your home. Typically a residential hot water heater lasts between 6 and 13 years. Beyond 12 years, you are on borrowed time!

Can my hot water heater explode?

When the water heater’s temperature is set too high, thermal expansion of water increases pressure inside the tank to extreme levels. Gas leaks also create the potential for a hot water heater explosion and the risk of a fire.

Hot Water Heaters and Inflation Reduction Act

The Hot Water Heater and Inflation Reduction Act is a proposed piece of legislation that would provide incentives for homeowners to upgrade their hot water heaters to more energy-efficient systems. The act would provide tax credits, rebates, and other incentives for homeowners who replace their old, inefficient hot water heaters with newer, more energy-efficient models.

The goal of the act is to reduce energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and help reduce the impact of inflation on household energy bills. By incentivizing the upgrade of hot water heaters, the act aims to make these systems more affordable and accessible to homeowners.

As of my knowledge cut off in 2021, this act has not yet been passed into law, but it is an example of the kinds of measures that governments and organizations are considering to promote energy efficiency and reduce the impact of energy costs on households.

If you are interested in upgrading your hot water heater to a more energy-efficient system, there are many options available, including tankless water heaters, heat pump water heaters, and hybrid hot water heaters. It’s always best to consult with a professional plumber or HVAC contractor to determine the best solution for your specific needs and situation.
