A selection of 300 homeowner reviews:
“They did my furnace checkup. The gentleman that did the work was extremely polite. He told me everything that he was doing, and he was very thorough. I'd give them an A+.”
“Everything from the beginning to the end was positive. They did it when they said they'd do it, they did it at the price he said they'd do it at, and they did excellent work. They had to replace an exterior HVAC unit, which wasn't so easy because I had a defective unit that did not come from them. It came from another source, so they took on a tough job that a lot of HVAC people would not attempt to tackle. They'd get an A+. I'm really satisfied with them.”
“They've done very good work. They've done both electrical and heating and air conditioning work for us. They moved a light fixture for us about a year ago, and then they replaced our air conditioning unit. I'd rate them A+ overall.”
“They were on time, and they did their job. They did A/C work for me. They're an A+.”
“It was good, so everything was fine. They did air conditioning work for me, and then I also had some electric service. I didn't have any issues, so I have no complaints, and I would recommend them to friends.”
