“I was having problems with a 23-year-old gas fireplace. Technician tested and replaced defective parts. We did have one hiccup with the fireplace not starting again the next day, but the technician came back right away and fixed. Works perfectly now.”
“Good performance. Need Wi-Fi thermostat at no charge.”
“I called them to fix a Friedrich window A/C that wasn't working properly. It was a small fix, but they came on time, put paper booties over their shoes to protect my hardwood floors (without being asked!), and fixed the A/C in short order. Can't ask for more from a repair technician!”
“Wheat installed a dehumidifier in our basement. The work was done promptly and professionally and the system works very well.”
“We are very pleased with all the service calls we have had for maintenance on the gas logs. They recently installed a new A/C unit and furnace. They were great to work with when at the house, cheerful and helpful over the phone also.”
