“I appreciate that options are always gone over, and work is prioritized -- there is no pressure to do everything at once. I have been told what jobs can wait, and which ones deserve immediate attention and why. The company also had to fix some things that were installed and wired poorly by a previous company.”

“Herman Garcia is unfailingly friendly, professional and courteous. He always does a great job communicating, and patiently answers all my questions. I would like to have him back for all my annual service appointments. Continuity is important, and it helps to have the same tech, who is familiar with the units. Herman and I work well together!”

“I had three companies and James A. Wheat & Sons are the best. I like their honesty, thoroughness, and their work. The other companies would tell me that I need other things and I didn't need anything else. They corrected a tubing issue I had. Other companies wanted to sell me a whole new system. James A. Wheat & Sons cleared the tube by untwisting it. It was on my humidifier. I like the time and attention they give me.”

“Even with difficult scheduling constraints, James A. Wheat & Sons always makes their schedule fit ours, when necessary coordinating among their own technicians in heating/air conditioning and plumbing to come in simultaneous or overlapping time frames. Service is always cordial and highly efficient. When a major unit or system has required replacement, James A. Wheat & Sons has worked with us to provide the best solution for our particular situation - not overselling higher-priced or oversized units but accurately assessing our specific needs.”
