Our review team ranked K&J Burns with 3 out of 5 stars for this category of overall cost effectiveness, placing them in equal third position with another company as compared to their competitors in this region. This is still not too bad in terms of the wider market. They also offer the first service free to customers within 12 months of installation, which would save money. K&J Burns are willing to pass on any deals and promotions from their preferred brands but do not offer volume discounts or price matching. They also offer a much longer warranty, meaning that the customer should not have to pay if something goes wrong with the unit.

This score may have been lower due to their comparative response time; where Advanced Air NT replied to initial requests and turned quotes around within a 6 hour time frame, K&J Burns took 24 – 48 hours to complete the same tasks. This ranked them with a medium response time when compared to Advanced Air NT’s fastest rating.
