Jim took the time out of his day to talk to me on the phone and thoroughly explain and help on my project as much as he could, even though what I was looking for was not a fit for him. Not many companies will go that far!

Clinton Township Resident - John C.  September 4, 2022

  I would like to thank Jim with Climate Design for another great job, this time a totally new install. Jim has kept my 20 year old system up and running for over a decade, but the time came for a new system. Jim came with great system recommendations and we settled on a system that would work best for my application. He worked with my schedule and completed the install in a very timely manner, his workmanship is second to none and I have the upmost respect for him. If you're looking for a company that will sell you the equipment you need with the service you deserve please don't hesitate to call him. I can't say enough about it,  great man, great equipment, great service. Thanks for everything Jim.

  I was referred to Climate Design and owner Jim McBride by a company I used for our hot water tank replacement. To me, that was a highly recommended referral. Mr. McBride came a day after our a/c went kaput. he gave a detailed explanation of what was involved, what the cost would be and when he could take the job....which was immediately. Fair price and was there right on the scheduled time. Also our furnace (35 years old) had started to make noises that I knew was not right and asked him to give me a price to install both. he gave me the price to combine & install the same day. very reasonable. He'll explain all the details you need to know and answered all the questions I asked about our "new" additions. He was so cordial to me and my wife that I consider him now....a friend of the family. Trust me you'll have a pleasant & professional experience when you call Climate Design.

   I purchased a new air conditioner and furnace from Climate Design Inc. Installed by heating and cooling guru Jim, the job was completed professionally, neatly, efficiently, and on time.  Everything promised was definitely delivered.  Five stars and kudos to Climate Design, you've earned my recommendation!

Chesterfield Twp. Resident - Anne Copeman - March 1, 2016

Jim was very knowledgeable and friendly. I contacted him (and others) for quotes to diagnose my furnace problems, and instead of simply giving me a quote he took the time to ask what was going on and even fit me in the same day! His price was excellent and he was very honest. He didn't try to sell me anything, and guaranteed his work. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family!

Harrison Township Resident - Court Cadle - Feb. 8, 2016

I got several quotes before choosing Climate Design. Not only did Jim have the fairest price, he didn't try to bs me. He laid out the numbers, said exactly what he would do and that's how he got to the price. I replaced my furnace & a/c, and Jim's work is impeccable for both. He told me the timeline, he stuck to the timeline, cleaned up afterwards & was completely professional. I couldn't have asked for a better company!!!

Harrison Township Resident - Chuck - October 4, 2015

   Excellent service at a fair price. I had my old furnace and A/C replaced. The result was a very clean installation. Meticulous workmanship throughout. I would recommend Jim at Climate Design without hesitation.

SCS Resident - Robert - April 21, 2015

   After getting three bids for installing my new HVAC system I decided to go with Climate Design mainly due to the fact that Jim said he would actually be doing the installation himself. I felt that his experience being on the jobsite would result in a better quality installation. I was not disappointed! The installation was very professional and done exactly as contracted; on time and  with no unexpected, last minute add-ons. The systems have been performing perfectly and I would highly recommend Climate Design to anyone thinking about replacing their furnace and/or air conditioner.

Clinton Township Residents - John and Kristine Chandonais - May 6, 2013
    This is my second time I've needed the services of Climate Design, and again I can't say enough positive things about my experience with them, great service and price points. I called to make an appointment then canceled because I thought I fixed it and then called back to make another.... Jim came by the same day and had me up and running with in the hour. His experience and knowledge can't be matched. I've told all my friends and family if they need HVAC service, call Jim. It's hard to find a service person with the knowledge and experience needed and even harder to find one who you can trust not to take advantage of you. Jim with Climate Design is that person, Five star. The best I've ever dealt with.

Harrison Township Residents -Beth & Ed Thompson - June 22, 2012
    We cannot tell you how much we appreciate how quickly someone came out to service our air conditioner.  We called Climate Design in the morning and our air was up and running by 2:00 that afternoon.  Very friendly, efficient, and reasonable!  The next time we have trouble with our air, Climate Design will be the ONLY call we make.  Thanks!!

Chesterfield Township Resident - Mike - May 1, 2012
    Just a note to 'Thank You' for a job well done! Also, final inspection will be done by May 4th.

Clinton Township Residents - Tanya & Brian - July 20, 2011
   Here we are on the hottest day in Michigan - temperatures soaring into the 100s... and our air conditioner decides to "take a vacation".  Knowing tomorrow's calling for higher temperatures... we were not willing to wait to get this fixed.  So, we called a few well known heating and cooling companies to rely on their "24-Hour Emergency Service"... to no avail.
   So, we kept looking... and found Climate Design, Inc.  Jim McBride answered directly and offered us a reasonable price (even after hours) for the service and repairs.  Within minutes, he arrived at our home, and had our air conditioner repaired and running like new!  He was professional, knowledgeable and offered us some friendly advice on our systems.  Jim even walked through every step of the repairs with us.  Great work ethics and customer service! 
   Thanks a million for coming on such a short notice...and working in the unbearable heat to get our air conditioner working again.  You have two more satisfied clients!   We'll definitely call you directly for all of our heating and cooling needs.

Staying cool in Clinton Township!
Tanya & Brian

   Climate Design rates **Five-Stars** for sales and service.

I have been doing business with Jim McBride at Climate Design Inc. for several years now and have been completely satisfied with our customer experience.  Jim repaired our old furnace and also installed our new furnace and air conditioner system.  For both repair and installation services, Climate Design provides expert craftsmanship combined with superior customer service.  Call Climate Design for your heating and air conditioning needs -- you cannot go wrong with them!

Rochester Hills Resident - Bob - Dec. 28, 2010
   Climate Design replaced my central air, furnace and humidifier.  The price was lower than that quoted by a major home building supply chain and the quality and attention to detail was much better than I suspect the chain store would have provided.  Jim McBride explained everything thoroughly and provided a well integrated system that is performing beautifully.  He carefully designed the sheet metal, tubing and supporting brackets to create a quiet, clean looking and well laid-out system.  I highly recommend Climate Design to anyone who needs anything done to their heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

Grosse Pointe Farms resident - James - Dec. 14, 2010
  My new York modulating furnace is great. It runs so quietly at night, while maintaining a setback temperature, that you don't even hear it run.  If it needs to make up a large temperature differential it picks up speed and puts out a great deal of heat.  The modulating system is excellent for efficiency, especially so as I am using propane.  Thanks again for the excellent system design.  The open nature of the house and vaulted ceilings presented plenty of challenge to installing the system but the final result works beautifully.  I have had many positive comments regarding the system from Construction Authority inspectors and other trades.  After living with the York Modulating furnace and seeing it in action, I wouldn't have anything else.
Thanks again,
James Bell

Macomb Township resident - John - Sept. 22, 2010
   Jim arrived 5 minutes early and went right to work installing a humidifier. He was very professional and knowledgeable; he took the time to answer all my questions. He took the time to go over the functionality and offered suggestions on how and when to make adjustments. I highly recommend Climate Design for all your heating and cooling repairs. You will not be disappointed in their service.

New Baltimore resident - Jennifer - July 7th, 2010
   I called and within an hour someone was out. Very friendly and fast service. I would call anytime I have a problem.

Clinton Twp.  resident - Mike - March 6th, 2010
   Just wanted to say THANK YOU to CLIMATE DESIGN INC.  It was March 5 when I made the call at 10:00pm, my furnace went out. Jim would have came out that night but I said I could wait until the morning.  Jim was there by 9:30 am the next day and had it repaired in under an hour and, that included cleaning it out and replacing the motor.  And what a pleasant gentlemen to do business with.  He explains what he is doing while he works and he gets the job done FAST!  I just wish there were more companys with this man's work ethic.  I would recommend CLIMATE DESIGN INC to anyone looking for honest and efficient service.  THANKS AGAIN!  It was a pleasure. And he is much more reasonable than "THOSE" big name companys  where you pay for the name.  This is just an HONEST company doing the job RIGHT!
Thank You, Mike

Clinton Twp.  residents - John & Kristine - August 17th, 2009
   My A/C started making a very bad noise outside, (6:30 p.m.) I shut it down and grabbed the phone book to start searching. I found the number for Climate Design. I had second thoughts about calling someone who people would consider (the little guy) but I'm so glad I called Jim, he is the best. He showed up within 30 minutes of my call. He did not try to over sell his services just to make a buck. He has the most resonable service call fee out there and he arrived prepared with all the tools and parts needed. He had me up and running in a matter of 30 minutes. Everyone needs a climate control person to call when they need service and Jim is the only person I'll call in the future.   Thanks again for the excellent service, I WILL call Climate Design when I need service again.

Macomb Township resident - Steve Schick - June 20, 2009
   Hello, I would like to contribute to your customer testimonial list.
I called at 8:00 am on Saturday because my A/C was down, and by 10:45 am it was fixed and at a very reasonable price. I will look to Climate Design for all of my future Heating and Air Conditioning needs. I could not have been more satisfied.    Thanks to Jim McBride.

Harrison Township resident - Gil Duhn, Harbor Club North - April 27, 2009
   Climate Design had repaired my old unit twice in the past year. The response time was quick and the work performed solved my problems. Jim suggested that I replace the HVAC due to its age and there was now an energy tax credit. After careful  measuring and planning Jim presented a very reasonable quote (a couple of thousand less than Home Depot). The equipment, York (Made in USA), was professionally installed in a very tight closet and works very well. I would recommend Jim to everyone. Also, being in the automobile industry, I hope everyone begins to support their own country by buying USA made products and services.

Sterling Heights resident  -  Mike - Dec. 15, 2008
   I've had my new modulating furnace just over a month now. It's difficult to convey just how much more comfortable my home is. I have a quad and the upstairs was always warmer than the lower floors and the bathroom colder. No more! The temperature and humidity are the same throughout the house and it's amazing what a difference it makes. From the research I did prior to purchase there seemed to be a consensus that having a good installer is as important as getting the right furnace. Jim did an excellent and clean looking installation at a reasonable price. If you need a furnace I highly recommend both Jim and a York modulating furnace.

Eastpointe resident - Bill - Nov. 4, 2008
   Jim:  I appreciate how you stepped in and helped when I was having trouble getting the Eastpointe inspector to look at the furnace/AC that you installed. I think it was back on Oct 21st when you called the city after I called you. The inspector took just a few minutes to take a look. He remarked about what a nice unit it is.
Thanks again for your help!

Shelby Township residents - Bob & Jackie - Sept. 10, 2008
   We want to thank Climate Design Inc. for a great job. While repairing our air conditioner Jim volunteered to inspect the furnace to see if the leak had caused damage. After detecting rust on the heat exchanger, he suggested we consider replacing the furnace some time in the future but did not push the issue so as to pressure us into buying. Our furnace was 20 years old and we knew it needed to be replaced so we inquired about the price. Jim quoted a very fair price and showed extream professionalism when he measured and designed for the new installation. On the day scheduled for the installation he arrived promptly and proceeded to complete the contract, just as he promised. We are pleased with our new furnace and now feel secure that we will not be without heat this winter.

Clinton Township resident  -  Karey - July 11, 2008
   Thank you for installing our furnace so quickly. Your prompt service helped to ensure the sale of our home, and for that I'm so grateful. The Clinton Twp. inspector was VERY impressed with your work, and you can be sure that I will recommend you to anyone in need of a furnace. Thank you again.

Macomb Township resident  -  Merv - April 19, 2008
   I had my whole heating and cooling system replaced by Climate Design in November 2007, at the same time that I was going through an extensive home remodel. At that time I dealt with many contractors, and I can say without a doubt, Jim from Climate Design was the best. He was on time, courteous, and very particular with his workmanship. He took the time to explain everything that he did, and has been very available for any questions that I have had since. The work and service are superb. Climate Design is highly recommended. 

Perfect...  Harrison Township resident  - Kevin - July 9, 2007
   My house was 90 degrees when I walked in the door home from work... Outside temp. was about 98. I made one phone call and literally 20 minutes later my air was up and running. I would highly recommend. Quick, Easy, Affordable.

Excellent Work   Clinton Township resident  - Rob - Jun 20, 2007
   This is my second HVAC unit I have had installed by Climate Design and I must say that the workmanship was outstanding, so much so, that even the inspector was impressed. They were on time every time, and even cleaned up!


Happy Customer   Warren resident  - sbuffa - Jun 20, 2007
   Our air conditioner completely stopped working on the day we had high heat temps, and our home felt like a sauna. I couldn't believe how quickly they responded and installed a new unit the next day!! They were very quick, courteous, friendly, reliable, and professional. I second the comment about the housing inspector. Our City inspector was equally as impressed by the quality of the workmanship. My husband and I would never trust any other company to install or repair our furnace and air conditioning unit. Highly recommend!!!!!!

Fast Service  St. Clair Shores resident  - Yahoo Customer - Jun 7, 2007
   Excellent Service at reasonable rates.: Serviceman arrived 5 minutes before scheduled, promptly repaired the problem and charged less than I expected. I highly recommend this company.

Asset  Macomb Township resident  - Lita - 09/11/2007
