General Contact

Your Local, Trusted Name in Home Service

Efficient Air Heating & Air Conditioning is a family-owned and operated business. We were founded as Efficient Air Service on April 23, 2005, by Albert M. Balonze, Jr.

Albert graduated with a degree in HVAC from Lincoln Technical Institute in Union, New Jersey. In 1996 he began a 5-year apprenticeship as a refrigeration and air conditioning service technician.

On May 25, 2001, Albert became qualified as a journeyman by having served an apprenticeship consistent with National Standards formulated by the International Pipe Trades Joint Training Committee. Additionally, Albert spent his 5-year apprenticeship and the next five years working for one company as a lead service technician.

Over the past 20 years, Albert has continued his education in the HVAC industry, regularly refining his skills, while always keeping up with the latest advancements in home comfort technologies. He is also a licensed Master HVACR Contractor in the State of NJ. When Albert started Efficient Air Service in 2005 it was run out of his home in Clifton, NJ. He did all the work on his own with one helper.

Today, as Efficient Air Service, we’re growing with two highly-trained installation crews, three friendly, skilled service technicians, as well as several amazing office team members.

In 2011 we moved to our permanent location which is conveniently located at 109 Route 23 South in Riverdale, New Jersey.

We are extremely fortunate to operate our 3,000-square-foot facility, where in addition to our excellent service, we can also fabricate our own custom ductwork in-house. While Albert is no longer working in the field, he is the sole owner/operator of Efficient Air Service and is involved in all aspects of the company – sales, service, and project management.

He and his team at Efficient Air Service strive daily to provide their neighbors with an incomparable experience and service.

Our team celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2015 and continues to look forward to many more years of earning our customers’ trust.

  6. Get the Job Done: Organize and schedule your installation requirements quickly and easily.
