Finding someone you can trust to do a good quality, efficient, and reliable job of installing an air conditioner in New York City is especially difficult now that Google's results are seemingly endless. That is until you find someone who takes care of it for you quickly, easily, and who comes highly recommended.
I don't always write about individual people or companies as I want to make sure that everything I recommend on America Josh is balanced with options, but the fantastic experience I had with Alex today deserved its very own.
Who do I recommend for AC installation in NYC?
It's Alex of Riverside Handyman.
I was recommended to Alex from a Facebook post in an online community and reached out to find out what might be possible.
I was immediately greeted by an efficient and quick quote that came in at a rate that was competitive (and better than any other I'd seen). The best part is that they assess installation cost based on the size of the unit and it's a flat-rate, so there's no risk of an hourly rate going crazy.
Alex quickly checked about whether I had a bracket (which is a legal requirement in NYC for all window units – which I did not) and brought one along for an extra cost that was agreed to up-front.
Alex arrived at the agreed time, right on time, and quickly got to work asking us to confirm what he needed to do and then quickly had started removing everything that was in the way and got to work.
He installed two units in our apartment in a matter of minutes, had them screwed in, braced, and sealed around the edges to insure optimal installation, and even helped tidy up afterwards.
Payment was done via Zelle and an invoice was issued right after. Honestly, the perfect installation.
What types of air conditioners does Alex install?
Installs include window units, split AC units, and all other types of residential installation.
Which areas does Alex install ACs in NY?
Alex covers all of New York City, on all days of the week, from 8-8pm.
Ring or email, then you will quickly be able to schedule a time and Alex (if my experience was any example) will roll up right on the dot.
How do I contact Alex for an air conditioner installation?

Two thumbs up for a good person doing great work!
