AC Contractor recommendations in Albany NY?

Any suggestions for HVAC contractors in the Albany NY area? So far everyone I have spoken to looks at me like I have two heads when I talk about doing a Manual J... I may not actually need one done for just a new central AC but I feel the ability to discuss it is a good qualifier...

Thanks as always to everyone who contributes here.

    Of course a Manual J needs to be done. How else would the contractor know what to install?

    No promises but have you clicked on the "Find a contractor in your area" link up there?☝️

    THe closest one in the link was about 2 hours away, so probably not feasible.
    I would certainly prefer a Manual J be done, but I am very aware of how often my 3 ton unit ran during high load periods and AC isn't as mission critical as heat in Albany so I'm prepared to skip it if I can't find anyone who wants to do it.
