I had problem with my furnace. People from D & R came in and fixed it in a very professional manner. They give me an honest price and did a very good work. I really wish such kind of company will thrive, as today it is hard to find a good company\contractor who is not only honest but also has good workmanship. I had a pretty bad experience with another company before I found D & R Heating and Air.
Anyway, best luck, D & R

I was happy how D & R handled all aspects of the job. D & R responded to my initial call and arrived on site to identify the issue on the same day. The technician clearly explained the issue and gave me options and pricing so I could make an informed decision how to proceed. As the job was underway I was consistently updated on status. I would definitely recommend D & R to family and friends and will continue to do business with them in the future.

I just had D & R replace my air conditioning system this spring and it is working awesome. Rich is very professional and courteous, he does not gouge you on pricing like some contractors and is very good at explaining what the issue is and the repair or replace options. Also had D & R replace my hot water heater and do furnace maintenance. Each time the work was done in a timely and efficient manner.

Rich converted my old hot air furnace to baseboard and radiant heat. My wife loves it and I am saving over $100 per month. It also help with my kids' allergies. The old hot air furnace was really tough on the allergies. He also split the air conditioning into two zones. Upstairs and down. I am saving another $100 per month on electric too. On top of all that, D & R filled out all the paperwork and got me $1500 in rebates from the Electric and Gas Company. I would definitely recommend them to all family and friends.

We've been using D & R for many years and I've never met a more trustworthy contractor than Rich. Over the years, he has put in our AC unit, furnace, humidifier, hot water heater and, after Super Storm Sandy, our new whole house gas generator. Very rarely does it work out that the most cost effective option is also the best option, but I found that to be the case with D & R. I do a lot of research to find the right contractor for major purchases/home improvements and, when I do, I'm very demanding. Rich has met the challenge every single time, so, now, I don't even hesitate to use him for whatever he does. When I started my research for the whole house generator, I was about to make my choice, when I found out he was getting into that business. I immediately requested a quote, but I already knew that he was going to be my final choice (to no surprise, his quote was considerably better). He also maintains all of this equipment and never recommends anything that you don't need. In fact, he's almost apologetic, if something has to be replaced, due to wear and tear. I personally guarantee that you'll be happy if you choose this company for your Heating & AC needs (and now generators).

Fair price, honest guy, fixed the issue with the gas heater and explained what was wrong with it. Looking forward to installing the gas range.

It is an advantage to have the owner on the job from start to finish, did a replacement job and does the servicing on the unit. Responsive, timely and complete installations, his workmanship is his advertisement.

I called D & R a few minutes before 5:00pm on a Friday; my AC had stopped working that afternoon. I got a call back within 10 minutes, they were on site within 30 minutes, and everything was working again within 90 minutes of my original call. I couldn't ask for better service and would recommend D & R without hesitation.

I have know Richard since Who knows when? I am sure we babysat for him on one occasion or another. Proud to see that he grew up into a good man and father and businessman

5 star D&R is not only reliable and fair for everyday jobs, but did a great job switching our HVAC and Water Heaters!!
Suzanne Duignan - 2015
Top notch professionalism...that's what I received when I needed someone today. Woke up to no heat and Richie was here and had my unit up and running in no time. I highly recommend you add his company to your phone book. Thanks again!!

I used D & R Heating & Air Conditioning after Hurricane Sandy! Couldn't have been more pleased! Excellant work and great customer service!!

Rich and D&R Heating & Air Conditioning are the best at what they do. I and my husband have used D&R for all our heating and cooling needs since we moved to this area in 2000. Rich is always on time, honest, fair in his pricing and his work is impeccable. I highly recommend him and D&R. I can't say enough about how happy we are with his work.
We have been customers of D&R for close to 10 years and have had excellent service each and every time. Rich Fossani is extremely knowledgeable and professional and has an excellent work ethic. We recently had D&R install an air handling A/C system and we are very happy with the results. Rich took the time to research the most efficient size system for our house size and provided a very fair price for the project. We would highly recommend D&R for any HVAC job whether small or large. Great service at a fair and reasonable price!
I became a first time home owner at the age of 60 and as a result of the home inspection, I knew that I would need to replace the entire HVAC system as well as have a dual register A/C unit installed in the upstairs bedroom. Rich came highly recommended and I knew from the moment I met him that he was highly professional, ethical and committed to doing the best job possible. Since I knew next to nothing about the ins and outs of these various units, Rich was very patient in answering my many questions in a manner that helped me understand exactly what needed to be done and why, as well as how to properly maintain these heating/cooling components. His installations were done in a neat and timely manner and when an issue arose with the furnace that was unrelated to Rich's installation, he was persistent in having it resolved. He contacted the manufacturer of the unit and when their technician came to my home to examine the unit, he remarked to Rich, "What a beautiful installation!" The issue was eventually resolved and I'm so thankful that Rich was there every step of the way. He is a pleasure to know and he has always returned my phone calls and emails in a prompt manner, assuring me that my queries and concerns are never an imposition.
I began researching a new high efficiency furnace and central air for my home to replace my 21 year old system this Spring. I interviewed a number of local companies. Rich from D and R was the natural choice in terms of equipment and pricing. He came out and did not make the typical "sales pitch. I could tell he was honestly concerned about my comfort. At no time did I feel pressured nor did he try to up sell to a more expensive system than was needed. In fact he took the time to explain why the more expensive unit an additional $500.00 was not the right choice. After the initial quote he came to my home to take his calculations. On the day of installation he showed up on schedule. All work was done personally by Rich the owner. After installation he contacted me to ask if everything was running to my expectations.( It was).In the fall he contacted me again to schedule a no charge start up of my furnace. D and R is a pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend them.
Rich is trustworthy and professional. Great work!
Rich did a great job replacing all of my heating and air equipment. We have been more comfortable since and the bills have been easier to handle. Thanks for a job well done.

I highly recommend using D & R for your AC needs, Very responsive, Good work, cleans up and stands behind his work
Just came out today to my rattling furnace. Believe all of the positive reviews. Figured out the problem in no time and saved me a lot of problems going forward. I would recommend to anyone and everyone. Thanks!
Yesterday, I called D & R at noon to see if they could send someone to fix my air conditioning unit within a day or two. Much to my surprise, Rich showed up three hours later! He diagnosed the problem immediately and had the unit up and running 40 minutes later. I couldn't thank him enough and would recommend D & R in a heartbeat - thanks so much Rich!
This past year Rich from D&R replaced our furnace and ac units in one of the zones in our house. The work he did was outstanding. When the inspector came out, he even commented on how well the work was done. There were no surprises with the cost. Rich was very transparent regarding the costs and options. During the process, Rich was very respectful of our property. Rich answered phone calls and responded to texts in a timely manner. I have no hesitation recommending Rich and D&R Heating & Air Conditioning.
Called Rich after my furnace gave out during a cold front and after another company couldn't fix the underlying problem after 3 different visits. He came soon after I called and worked for a few hours fixing the board on the furnace, and then tested the CO emissions in the exhaust of the furnace. He even came again the following week to fine tune the gas pressure on the furnace and give it a good cleaning. The previous owners were not cleanly and didn't take care of things well, so it needed some TLC. Rich was honest and courteous to me, answered any questions I had, and I couldn't be happier with his service. I will definitely be calling him for any future HVAC services!
Our experience with Rich was quit refreshing. After being told by 3 different major companies that we had to replace our air conditioning unit , furnace, and condenser, here comes Rich with true honesty and expertise. He told us to let him see if he could fix the problem before replacing anything. We already had been without air conditioning for about 2 -3 weeks, it was August and we have 4 kids, so at this point we were desperate. It was becoming unbearable to stay in the house any longer due to the heat. After spending 2 hours testing everything inside and out he figured out the problem and temporality fixed our system. That night we all slept comfortable and could breath easier. He came the next day with the piece that needed to be replaced and now it’s November and still my system works perfectly fine. You don’t find people like Rich every day, who are honest, hard working and very reasonable with the price. I would recommend him to anyone who has any air conditioning or heating problems. Thank you for all your help.
Recently I experienced a last minute issue with my air conditioning right before closing on my house. In a panic the night before I reached out to Rich at D & R Airconditioning leaving a voice mail to urgently request a call back. He indeed did call back to my relief only a short time later. I really wasn’t expecting him to do so at all actually since the hour was late in the day on a Sunday. Not only did he call back and listened to my problem, but made over the phone suggestions as well. Unfortunately it didn’t help though. Rich realizing that the situation required a quick turnaround was very responsive and suggested that he might be able to come the next day but not until maybe noon as he had another appointment in the morning. Time was of the essence and crucial that the issue needed to be resolved fast or perhaps the closing would be in jeopardy. He assured me that he would come at 12 definitely.
The next day, lo and behold, there he was at my doorstep. Not at 12 noon but at 9 in the morning! He was like an angel to the rescue. Not only did he work fast to try to find the solution but unfortunately he found no issue with any of the components. But being the best A/C guy there is he identified the culprit. It was simply a faulty electrical connection in the thermostat. His quick thinking solved the problem shortly. Needless to say he saved the day. We were able to close with not a worry that day and all a result of the professional and understanding qualities of this person. Rich was not only prompt but smart and absolutely knows his stuff.
Need anything A/C related? Never, ever call anyone else. He is simply the best!!! Thanks again Rich!!! You’re the best!
Rich recently installed a brand new HVAC system in my condo. I had recently bought the place and the system was the original installed when it was first built. Rich was thorough, professional, clean and offered a great price and service plan. I recently had the work inspected by my town and they marveled at his work and thought it was done perfectly. I highly recommend him!
We’ve used D&R for 15+ years. The service and reliability can’t be beat. Rich is very knowledgeable, extremely accommodating, and always accessible. We recently had a service call for our second zone A/C that wasn’t cooling. I called and left a message in the morning and received a call back within an hour. A few texts back and forth and Rich arrived later that day to quickly assess the problem and get the A/C operational again. If you’re looking for reliable sales and service from a trusted, locally owned and operated company, D&R should be your first call.
I've been holding off on leaving this review because I wanted to be able to honestly evaluate our new system in a variety of different weather conditions.
Our AC (original) finally bit the dust during the two hottest weeks of summer 2017. We were in prime position to be taken advantage of. We met with quite a few different contractors; some were nice, but most were just interested in the pitch and the sale (or just shady), if they bothered to call us back at all. Rich was the first person to follow up and come out. He was one of the very few to proactively follow up on that initial visit to see if he could answer anything else for us.
Rich was not pushy, and was VERY patient about answering my many questions. He was the only person willing to provide direct references when asked, and following up with those references it was remarkable to see the extraordinary relationship he had forged with his customers, most of whom he had done business with for a very long time. He does not push upselling at all and had recommended a basic unit that would work. We were interested in upgrading our system beyond just the basics, and he was very helpful in helping us find which upgrades would be best suited for our needs/wants and which were less practical given our home layout/local coding regulations (HE furnace; there were issues with our venting that could have made it a very involved job). He was also scrupulous in his load cost calculations to make sure we were getting units that were correctly sized. This was a huge relief, especially after encountering so many contractors pushing oversized units.
Upgrading our thermostat to make sure we could take advantage of the full functionality of a dual-stage furnace required a little research on his part, but he followed through and it ran perfectly all throughout this insanely cold (and long) winter. He also upgraded our AC drainage lines during installation of the condensate pump, made sure our coolant line was appropriately sized, and replaced all of the cobbled together (and out of code) ductwork for both our furnace and hot water heater. I'm not an HVAC expert by any means, but I was struck by how clean and neat the installation was; the finished install was so tight and clean, I really wish I had taken a "before" picture to show just how much better Rich's work was. Installation ran over by a half-a-day, but I wasn't bothered by this at all because the quality of his work was obviously very high. He kept his workspace extremely clean and his assistant Joe even patched up the few small holes cut in the drywall where the coolant line was replaced. His communication was always excellent and he was extremely responsive before, during, and after completion of the job.
Our town is extremely tough on code enforcement, and there was literally nothing that the inspector found fault with in terms of the installation. We passed inspection on the AC and furnace easily. Rich also helped us coordinate the CoolAdvantage reimbursement that we were eligible for after the AC installation (he was also very careful to make sure our selected coil/condenser/furnace blower combo would be eligible for reimbursement) and made the submission process so much easier. Our AC ran fantastically last summer and there were no issues whatsoever; and the house was always comfortable. This past winter was a real test of the furnace, and I shudder to think about how the old one would have fared. We kept the house much warmer than previous years (by nearly 5 degrees!) and saw bills that were nearly the same in substantially harsher outside temperatures.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Rich. I am confident in his abilities and know that any future issues that we may encounter will be in good hands with him. My husband and I have done a lot of work on our home, and I wish that every contractor we've dealt with had the integrity and craftmanship that Rich has! Thank you so much for a job well done.

Rich has been servicing my A/C & Furnace for years ... in 2013 I put in a new system ... his technical expertise made that transition quite smooth ... a dear friend originally recommended Rich & our hope is that he does not retire soon ... LOL!

Just had a new HVAC system installed by D & R. After receiving 3 different quotes D & R was the most reasonably priced by far. The install went perfect and in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend D & R as you wont go wrong. In fact after the install was done, I had another vendor in the house to repair a gas dryer who happened to do HVAC too. While he was repairing our dryer he noticed the new HVAC system and commented on how impressed he was by the install. If I could I would give D&R stars.
