“It was a combination of things. They always do very good work, extremely conscientious about doing it the right way. They always do a little bit more than is necessary just to make it done right. They are clean. It always looks great when it's done, and have been very responsive. I've just been very pleased with them. They did plumbing and electrical and HVAC. Most recently, they installed a new hot water heater. They did a heavy upgrade of our electrical system, so they replaced a whole circuit panel and they basically rewired the circuit in the power end of the house. They actually replaced our heater and air conditioner over a couple of years. I'd give them an A+. I actually have recommended them quite a bit.”

“Everything was very good. They gave me a head's up when they were coming. It was easy to schedule the appointment. They contacted me within a sufficient time so I could be ready for them. He went right to work. He gave me a briefing on the status of my unit, made some suggestions on making improvements if I wanted it, but he didn't push it. I had them on an annual contract and they maintained my heating and cooling systems. They actually installed them too. Many, many years ago, they did basic electrical work for me. More recently, some plumbing. The same thing, good work habits, and making sure they don't leave a mess behind. I'd give them an A+.”

They also did plumbing. They are in my phone—if I keep them in my phone, I use them again. They were clean, too. They'd get an A+.”

Everything's been working fine since. I think the main thing that made my experience positive is that they were able to come out on the same day and they got the job done quickly. They were friendly. They cleaned up well after they were finished—there wasn't really any mess. I'll give them an A+. They're nearby, and they were willing to come out the same day, so that's why I used them. I would use them again.”

“John Nugent & Sons did a great job. I had them come back twice. They arrived on time, they didn't do anything without checking with me first, they fixed it, and then they charged us. It was a very good experience. I have been using their service for about a year, and I based it on a couple of the neighbors because they use them. I do not have a service contract with them yet. In the future, if needed, I will probably still use them. They were an A+.”

“I think John Nugent & Sons did work downstairs. It's still working—it's OK. I think they replaced something for me. It was major work, and I know that they repaired a lot. That was the first time I had this company do work for me. I would give them an A+.”

“The electricians from John Nugent were very competent. I really liked that they came on time. I had a circuit that went dead, and they were able to troubleshoot the problem that another company couldn't. I'd give them an A.”

“They did three things for me. They put in a 20,000-capacity generator, and then they updated an electrical panel for me downstairs. Mine was old—almost 33 years old—and there were certain switches you cannot find, so they remodeled it for me. They made it up-to-date, and they put in another panel. They put in a generator to run with the furnace if there's an outage in electricity. They put in two furnaces. They have done the job for me two times, and both times, I was very pleased. Also, I switched to annual service for the summer and the winter with them. I used to have another company, but because I was so happy with them, and they were so good and very clean, I switched to them to service my equipment. One time, we had a three-day outage, and I lost a lot of food and things like that, so I said, 'That's enough.' I called them, and within four days, they came in and installed a generator for me. I've been using them for a year now, and they're wonderful, especially Patrick, one of the owners. He came in and supervised, and he kept me up-to-date with what they were doing. They are a very wonderful, conscientious company. I know Patrick the most, but they have a sister, Nancy, and she is wonderful in the office and directs all the appointments. You call her, and then they get back to you immediately and always try to accommodate you. I give them an A.”

“I've been using John Nugent & Sons for at least ten years. They do our regular maintenance. Any repairs have held up, too. The technicians are very kind—they're lovely.”

“John Nugent & Sons put in two electronic thermostats for me. Their work was excellent. They call before they come, and the men that they hire are very professional. They're not inexpensive, but they're good, and they're honest. I actually ran into my HVAC guy at a boat show, and he made sure he stopped and said hello when he saw me. When he was putting in the thermostat, he said, 'I'm going to be honest with you here, I've never done this before, but I can do it. I may have to change a wire here or there because I haven't done it before.' And he got it done on the first try.”

“They were here twice, once for some electrical work, and a second time for some plumbing work. The technician seemed to know his business. I would use them again. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did some electrical work for me. I was very pleased. They were very dependable—I liked the way they always called and told me when they were coming, and they always came when they said they would. They were excellent. I would say they're an A+.”

“We were selling our house, and they did some electrical work that came up on the inspection, and we used them again after we bought our first house when we found a couple electrical issues with it. The electrician was very accommodating, and he was on time. I'd rate them as an A.”

“I really appreciate their great customer service—they're very responsive and very good with follow up. Also, they tend to provide service that's actually needed as opposed to increasing their bank account, so to speak. We've done installation, repairs, and maintenance with them on everything—electrical, heating, air conditioning, and plumbing. I'd give them an A+.”

“I got a new washer and dryer, and they put in a new outlet for my dryer. They're an A, with no complaints.”

“The company was very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. They were fast, and they left everything clean. They did some plumbing and some electrical work for me. I'd give them an A+.”

“I have used John Nugent & Sons for the last year or so. They did a repair for me, and they were excellent.”

“We called them on the weekend, during a very high-demand time. They were one of the only companies that had someone available to come and assist us. We really appreciated that they were available and that they came promptly on a weekend. They did an evaluation and resolved the problem. The customer service was great, and the technician was great, polite, and friendly. I'd give them an A.”

“I was totally satisfied with them. It was a very routine job. Everyone's always courteous to me—most people are very nice to little old ladies. I would call them again. I would definitely recommend them—my friends and I, we network, and we pass on what we like and what we don't like. They're an A+.”

“I'd rate them as 'excellent,' and I've recommended them to other people. I've even sought advice from them as to other work I needed to have done, outside of their services, simply because they were so reputable. Initially, I found them in a publication we get in the mail here—that EBSCO report. Give them an A+.”

“They came out to the house before the work was done to make sure that they understood what needed to be done. They scheduled the appointment in a timely manner and showed up on time. The work was high quality. I was very satisfied, and in fact, I'm planning on using them again in the future. It was the first time that I'd used this company—they were recommended by a friend. I'd give them an A+.”

“They're just professionals—that's all I can say. Whatever they fixed was just perfect. I'll go with an A+ for them.”

“The workers that came to my home were professional. Everything is holding up OK for me now. Their cleanup was fine, and their customer service was fine. A+.”

“John Nugent was excellent. They’re the best in everything—customer service, installation, and cleanliness. They installed a generator for me. The electricians were great and on time. They were very nice people. I wouldn’t use anybody else. I’d give them an A+.”

“I was happy and pleased with John Nugent & Sons’ work. They installed recessed lighting in our living room, and they also fixed some electrical work in our family room. I thought the quality of their work was great. I was really happy with the electricians. They were hardworking, polite, and friendly. I would use John Nugent again, and I would recommend them. They’re an A.”

“John Nugent was prompt, courteous, and did a good job. They replaced an old-fashioned kitchen light fixture, patched the hole, and put in a smaller one. I would give them an A.”
