They were prompt, and they addressed the problem that I had. I think I was low on refrigerant, and there was a circuit that needed to be replaced. I'd give them an A+.
I liked the time it took them to install the HVAC system and everything. I chose them over a different company because of the turnaround time. Everyone else was from several days to two weeks. I'd give Wade Heating & Air an A.
The man that came out was a good technician. He knew what he was doing, and he was good at it. I enjoyed him. I've been dealing with Wade Heating & Air for a pretty good many years. I had them install a furnace many years ago, and the last thing they did for me was to come out and service my furnace. I have them come out twice a year for the air conditioner. I have a contract with them. They get an A. I really appreciate them.
They came out to fix my air conditioner when the capacitor was broken. They were on time. I'd give them an A rating.
We had an issue, and they came out and fixed it promptly. The air conditioning wasn't working properly. I chose Wade Heating & Air because they're local here. I'd grade them as an A.
They're nice, and they get the job done quickly. I think they came on time. I believe our upstairs air conditioner was not working. I chose them over a different company because they've done work for us before. They get an A grade from me.
They seemed very knowledgeable, caring, and concerned. I think the technician, Manuel, was really trying to get my system started, and I really, really appreciated that, too. In the future, I plan on getting a new system, and they are definitely one of the companies I'm considering. I'd give them an A. I had a good experience with them.
They did their job, and they were professional. They did maintenance on the air conditioners. I chose them because I was already using them in a previous home. The company gets an A from me.
First of all, they came right when they said they would. We had a couple of false starts, which was very understandable for the time of year, and we had a low-urgency situation. They came out, did the work, and explained what they did and all that. It was just maintenance for that time of year. I hadn't had the maintenance done, so I just decided to have it done. I chose them because they had been recommended to us by a neighbor. Wade Heating & Air gets an A grade from me.
I guess we felt that they did a competent job. They just had to repair a problem with one of our air conditioners. I chose them over a different company because I think we used them in the past.
