“They're our regular folks. They're awesome. They do a great job every time. They are always on time and they fix stuff. We have an electrical contract with them. We have a HVAC contract with them. And we have a plumbing contract with them. We have all three. A+ for all of them. I would absolutely recommend them.”

“They're very good. If they say from 1-3, they're there. They're very pleasant people. They're just easy to work with. I've had some oil things done. He was so good. He did everything that could possibly be done for me. I just love them. I will always call on them to help me out. They did come in for plumbing, like a routine check but I have a contract with them. I've been using them for at least 7 years. And they fixed my air conditioner. A+ across the board.”

“He was very personable. He had a great personality. He explained everything to me and he fixed the problem; I had a short in one of my fuse boxes. I'd give them an A. I would recommend them.”

“I guess they were just kind of working with us on the exact placement of stuff; that was great. They were doing electrical work. I would give them an A.”

“They attended to any needs that we had in a prompt way. They came out, they fixed a board and had it sealed in, and they went above and beyond what their services were. We have a generator. They were great. We had a favorable reaction and relationship with them.”

“The technicians seem like they're very reliable and competent. They don't try to up sell me by telling me to replace a whole bunch of things I don't need to. I find them trustworthy. I have had some electric work done and also some work with plumbing. The plumbing was a pipe that was broken and the electric work was an installation of a light that was high up in the ceiling. I would say A for both of them. They were both good. I would say the customer service was a joy. They were always on time.”

“Nice attitude, came in and did the job well. Very nice young man. It was electrical work. With the technician, I'd give him an A+. I would absolutely recommend them.”

“They did come here to do an inspection of the heat. They've always been very prompt, efficient, reliable, and professional. They're real good as far as I'm concerned. They did electrical and air conditioning and heat. They come twice a year to check my air conditioning and then my heat. They make sure everything's working and they check the vents. That's all they do. I'd give them an A+. They give me recommendations and I feel like they've done a good job when they're here; they're not in and out real quick. They take their time and I'm very happy with the way they proceed with their job. I would absolutely recommend them; I have.”

“I've used them for electrical and plumbing and generator maintenance, stuff like that. They're pretty proactive about calling to make sure we don't forget anything. Before the summer comes, they make sure your air conditioning is all set to go, not malfunctioning; same thing with the heating system before winter comes. They're pretty on the ball. They installed my whole house electric generator and they do maintenance on that every year. And they do any plumbing or electrical work that needs to be done but very rarely does that need to be done. I'd give them an A+. I would recommend them.”

“Their team was very friendly, easy to work with, and their response time is quickly. We've used them to put an air condition and heating system replacement and a hot water heater as well. We had them for a little bit—we thought we would need some electrical work and they came in and checked everything out and said everything was fine; so we didn't need to use them for anything else. I would say they deserve an A+.”

“They did good work, I have no complaints, and I would recommend them. I had generator work.”

“They're very professional. They did a good job. We're happy. We were pleased; that's the bottom line. I'd give them an A. I would recommend them.”

“They do a good job for us. They've installed in a household generator and then did some plumbing for us, replaced a sump pump; those are the major things. We'd give them an A. I don't remember them being late.”

“They're reliable. We do their annual service so we pay them a contract and they come in and provide Spring and Fall maintenance on all of our electrical, our plumbing and heating system. And so, when we set that up, they're reliable, they always call ahead of time and they are on time. And when we have emergency services like we have plumbing issues or we have a heating issue, they're there immediately. They deserve an A.”

“The gentleman put in a new ceiling fan. Parrish Services was very, very nice. They were very knowledgeable and explained a couple of things. They were great. I'd give Parrish an A+ for my overall experience with them.”

“They do the maintenance on my generator. They do a very professional job, and they take their time. It's always done well. They're an A+ company.”

“Parrish put in a whole-home generator and hot water heater. They explained everything to us, and they showed up when they were supposed to. I'd give them an A+ overall. I have already recommended them.”

“They're good people, they're friendly and helpful, and they do a good job. I'd give them a top grade. I would recommend them, and I'll use them again.”

“Parish did electrical work for me. We had an exposed wire and we had no idea what it was to. So they came out, tested the wire, and said it wasn't live. They showed me where it went into the wall and they also showed me where it had been disconnected from the electrical panel that we have. They said it must have been before we had the FIOS cable. They thought it must have been from someone trying to run a computer cord. They explained how they could go through walls, but they would actually have to go through walls to get out all of the wire. So they said we could cap it. They took a lot of time explaining what it was. They came right out and they were very nice about it. While they were walking out, they diagnosed a problem with a front light and told me how to fix it with no charge. They were great and we actually signed up with a service plan with them. I'd definitely give them an A. Usually when we have workmen come in they say everything is fine, but he took the time to point out exactly what was going on and walked me through everything, which I appreciated. We are in a newer house and there was this enormous wire sticking out of our basement ceiling.”

“Their performance was very good and I would give them a very good rating.”

“All the way around, I'd fill in all the dots with good service. We were very happy with their services.”

“They relocated a gas service entrance for my gas range and oven in my kitchen, which was kind of an odd request. One that I'm not sure too many people get very often and they had a real can-do attitude toward solving my problem. They worked with me very closely to get it completed in a timely fashion and the work was very well done. I'd give them an A.”

“They moved a gas line for me. The guy came, gave me an estimate, did the work, and was gone in one day. I would give them an A.”

“They are very nice people to work with. They addressed all my issues and questions. They recommended anything without us thinking of it. I'd give them an A.”

“They put some GFI switches in the kitchen and then they routed a power line for a garage door opener. The guy was pleasant enough and seemed to work hard. He got the work done pretty quickly. I'd give them an A for the overall experience with them.”

“They installed three junction boxes on the TV for the cable line. They gave me a good quote and they did fast, clean work. They were really dedicated to the work. They get an A from me.”

“They did electrical work for me. They were fast with the return with the quote. They were pretty quick with following up to get the work done. I'd give them A for the overall experience.”

“There were two separate projects, but it was all electrical work. They fixed a short circuit in my basement, and they repaired a broken circuit to an outside light fixture. They were able to solve both problems, and in both cases, I think they came in a little bit under their estimate, which was good. I was particularly impressed with the short circuit in basement that the technician was determined to find the problem. He had to check a number of different things in order to find it. He located it, and as for the other one, the guy had a suspicion of where the problem was, so he checked it out. It turned out it was there, and in doing that, he was able to save some work and save us some money. I would give them an A-. I do want to mention two other things about them—one, for the second job, I had called made an appointment with one of their service people, but they failed to record it. When the day came, I called when he didn't come, and they said 'oh we never recorded it,' so we had to reschedule. The second thing, in both cases the people came at the very end of their time slot, and they're not terribly good at telling me when they were going to be coming, so it's a little bit of an annoyance. The people, when they come, do a good job, but I wouldn't say they're the most punctual.”

“I don't have any complaints about Parrish. They put in a generator.”

“They usually come out and fix the problem, whether it's something we can handle or not, and they explain things to us—they're very prompt and quick about it. It's not their fault, but the only thing I don't like is that you have to wait for a window of opportunity for them to come out. So, you can't predict when you need to be at the house, especially if you're on a work schedule. Most recently, we've had them do electrical work. Their customer service is very good. We pulled them out of Best Pick Reports, and we've been happy with them ever since. I'd rate them as an A.”

“They put in a generator. They were timely and took care of everything. Everything I asked, they answered.”

“They were good. The gentleman and did my smoke detectors, and he was very thorough. I had heard of them through word of mouth. I would give them an A—they are pretty good.”

“They are very informative and friendly, and they answered all of our questions. We have never had any problems.”

“They installed a propane-powered standby generator and rewired certain electrical circuits in the house. They kept us informed, answered questions accurately and promptly, and the personnel were knowledgeable.?”

“They sold us and installed a generator for our home. Our experience was positive. Everyone at Parrish was courteous and helpful. They very patiently explained everything to us and answered questions. Their behavior engendered trust.?”

“They did an installation of a Generac whole-house generator. They gave all the required information prior to installation and completed the work within the time frame they established.?”

“They do air conditioning checks and electrical. They provide very professional service.”

“They removed walk lights and checked a ceiling fan to assure me that it was safe. The service person was on time, worked efficiently, and was helpful.?”

“Parrish Services does good-quality work, they're very personable, and they walk me through what they're going to do. I'm very pleased with them. They've done a lot of work for us; they've done electrical and HVAC work, and they've done some other work, too.”

“They did everything we asked them to do. We had a power surge problem, and they replaced the fuse box and installed lighting fixtures that were damaged. Their customer service was good. They picked up the phone, and for me, that's a big thing. They were able to resolve any issues, so they earned an A grade.”

“We've had Parrish Services come out for electrical, plumbing, and HVAC work. Overall, they do very well, and I've been really impressed with the people who come out. They're professional, friendly, and helpful.”

“Their service was fine. They've done two jobs for me; the first was repairing an overhead fluorescent light fixture, and the second was wiring an outside electric lamp. I liked the timeliness of the response to my request for service and that they provided what I believed to be high-quality service. I'd give Parrish Services an A.”

“The light switch was broken, and a friend referred them to me. I thought the work was good; the technician was very good. I would recommend them—they were professional, on time, friendly, and competent. I'd go with an A+ grade for them.”

“They got the work done, and they got it done well. I had new outlets put in; the outlets work, so their quality of work is good. It took a couple of hours for them to complete the job. Everything has held up just fine. I would use the company again. The technicians who came out were very professional, and their customer service was good. I would recommend them, and I would give them an A+.”

“Parrish Services put in a circuit box. The workers and their work quality were good. I would recommend the company—I'd say they're an A.”

“They finished hooking up a generator. I chose Parrish because they were a dealer for the company who manufactured the generator. The workers were knowledgeable, on time, and friendly. I would recommend their business.”

“That house has been sold, so we're happy. They installed some things for us, and the quality was very good. I use them personally for my house; they've installed a generator for me, too. The communication was all good. Parrish Services deserves an A.”

“They were fine; they were good. They installed a generator, and everything's holding up great. The customer service was great. That generator installation was the first time I'd used the company, but I've already recommended them to others. I'd give them an A-.”

“They took two tries to repair my microwave, and when it was finally pronounced dead, they were very, very quick to send me compensation to buy a new one. While it was a process to get there, once they determined that it needed to be replaced, they were prompt to sending me a check for a new one. The technician was very knowledgeable, polite, and professional. He gave suggestions about what I should buy to replace the microwave, so that was very, very helpful. I have recommended them to others already. I would rate them as an A.”

“It was easy to make an appointment because they worked with my schedule, and they showed up within the time period they said. They were even on the early side of that—we had a two-hour block, and I think they were here within the first hour. He explained everything that he was doing, and he gave me the price before he did it. Once it was done, he made sure everything was put away and explained again what he had done, and then I paid for it. He cleaned up after himself and made sure I understood what he'd done. The work is functioning well. The workers were all very friendly and professional. I would use them again, and I would recommend them. I'd give them an A grade.”

“They did the work a long time ago, but they did great. They were fast, neat, and clean, and the workers were good. I would recommend the company. I give Parrish Services A's all across the board.”

“Parrish was on time, efficient, and quick. They swapped what I think was a bad outlet, and everything's held up great. The technician was very knowledgeable, seemed to know what he was doing, and didn't leave a mess. The customer service was terrific. Everyone was very friendly. They deserve an A+.”

“I like everything about Parrish Services. They installed the emergency generator, and it was good. I've worked with them for several years. They're very responsive, and the technicians were excellent. I've recommended the company to several people in my neighborhood. They're an A+.”

“Parrish did a great job. Everything's held up fine. The technician was clean and courteous, and they did a good job with the customer service, too. That was my first time using the company, and I would use them again. They did an A+ job.”

“We were highly pleased, very satisfied, and the work was excellent. We would refer the company, and we would use their services again. I used them for electrical. I think it was heating and air too, but the part that we needed the most was electrical. I give them an A+.”

“I was very satisfied with their quality of work. It was an electrical job. I was satisfied with the work and the knowledge of the electrician—he was very knowledgeable, very polite, and very professional. I would call them again if the need arose. They arrived on time and cleaned up properly afterward. They were an A.”

“I think I've had Parrish do the air conditioning and the electrical. The electrical was the most recent job they did for me. I think they did some outlets and put up a fan. I would use this company again in the future. I'll give them an A+.”

“They always show up, and they always do what they say they are going to do. We've had numerous things done by them. We had a generator put in by them, they've serviced our generator, and we also had our heater and air conditioner done by them. The quality of work was good. The technicians were very good. We've used them three or four years. Everything has held up great. I'd say A+. We keep calling them back.”

“I use Parrish for electrical. They were on time, and they were courteous and knowledgeable and gave me options. I would give them an A+. They came by and fixed the lamppost outside of my house, and they showed me how to fix it whenever it goes out.”

“We were very pleased with Parrish Services. We were having two problems at the same time. I think they came out to do the circuit breaker that was out. This was my first time using Parrish Services. They got there on time to start the work, and it was completed on schedule. I'll give them an A+.”

“Parrish installed some recessed lighting. This is the first time I used them. The electrician that came out was great. I'd rate them an A+.”

“I've really liked Parrish Services every time they've done work for us. They did work on our heating system, and they've also done work on our electrical system. The workers that I've seen are very professional, and their customer service is good. I'd grade them an A.”

“We had some work done back in December. It was the thermostat or something on the HVAC unit, and then we also had some mold, so Parrish Services put in a central lighting system to kill that off. As far as I know, everything was good. It was actually my wife who was here, but I think the workers were good. They finished the work in a reasonable amount of time. We haven't had any problems since, so everything is hopefully OK. We would use this company again. We chose them because we have a home warranty program, and they recommended Parrish. I'd probably give them an A.”

“They installed a ceiling fan, and they did a really great job. I was satisfied. Everything worked out really well.”

“They put in a home generator for me. It was fine. This was my first time using them. If I had an electrical issue in the future, I would use Parrish Services. An A is fine.”

“It's the second job we had them do. They installed a pumping tank and a generator and ran a gas line into the house for a gas stove. I would grade them an A.”

“They put an outlet for my oven in my lab. I would recommend them to someone else. They were an A.”

“Parrish did a good job. They did electrical work in a generator. I would say they were an A.”

“They installed some electric wiring. I'd used them before, and I would use them again in the future. I would rate them an A.”

“They did what we wanted them to do, so I guess that would make it a positive experience. I remember they did electrical work for us. I believe they were putting outlet boxes outside. The quality of the work was good. The worker who came out was good, and everything has held up fine. We had used them before, and they were fine. It's not that often we use them; the last time was probably several years before that. I would probably give them an A.”

“Everything seems to be fine. They installed a whole-house generator for me. That was my first time using them. The workers who came out were friendly and attentive to me. I would give Parrish an A.”

“I was happy with the quality of work that Parrish Services did. Overall, it was generally a good experience with the workmanship. I had them come in to do routine maintenance, and I'm not sure, but they may have fixed some small issues. I've had them do a major job for an electrical panel. I actually saw Parrish Services in Best Pick Reports. I would rate them an A.”

“I've had Parrish Services for years. They do great work. The last thing that they did for me was electrical work. I would give them an A. I always call them.”

“They did a home inspection for us, and they did well. We were purchasing a house, and they did the electrical part. Give them an A.”

“Parrish did good work on schedule. They installed a generator for me. That was my first time using them. I would give Parrish an A.”

“Parrish Services was fabulous. They were just so attentive to my needs, and they responded very quickly. I was getting a new stove and oven. I didn't have an outlet, so I needed to get an electrician to install one. They came out quickly, and they were great. I'd give them an A+, definitely. They're the best—the greatest.”

“Parrish did good work. We had them install a system for our generator, and it's worked out great. They also did some electrical jobs for us, along with some additional work. They're an A.”

“Parrish Services helped me run some wires through my wall to hang up a television. I was happy with the service—it was high quality, and the workers were professional. I'd give them an A.”

“Parrish Services did great. They installed a transfer switch into a portable generator. The electrician was very, very helpful—A+.”

“Parrish Services was out here to find an electrical problem, and the guy was able to find it right away. It was amazing how fast he was able to pinpoint the problem. He was pleasant and explained the danger of certain electrical problems. It was a good experience, and I’d give them an A+.”

“The work Parrish did was outstanding in all aspects. I was very pleased. They were professional. The electricians worked on sizing and installing the generator we needed. I couldn’t ask for more. They did good, quality work. I’ve already recommended them to other people. They’re an A+.”

“Parrish did a good job. They installed an electrical outlet, and the electricians who came out were great. I would use Parrish again, and I would recommend them. I’d give them an A+.”

“They did a great job. They did some electrical work a couple months ago, and they also fixed a shower fixture. I would say they're an A+.”

“Parrish Services installed lighting, my HVAC system, and an exhaust fan in my attic. I keep using them because of the quality of their work—and then trust, too. It's a trust factor that I know that they come through with the work, and they'll also bring out good people. I would definitely give them a referral and an A+ grade.”

“Parrish went through and checked our electrical sockets—just made sure everything was in order. Then they put in a new heating furnace switch. I was very satisfied with the quality of the work that they did. There was just one worker, and he was fine. He was good—polite and courteous. I would definitely give them an A+.”

“Parrish Services does a lot of service work for my generator. They do great work. I'm an electrical contractor too, and they provide quality service for me and for the generators that I install. I have nothing bad to say about them. They're always on time, their phones always get answered, and I always get a response back. They respect my property as far as cleanliness at the end of the job. Typically, we have emergencies here, and they respond within a time frame that is really desirable as far as my customers think. They're reliable as far as showing up and doing the job, and they give the reassurance that everything will get taken care of quickly. They're an A+.”

“They did my electrical work and also my heating and air. I loved them. They’re great. I love their promptness. They’re very professional, and I just like the way they carry themselves. I always feel like I’m in good hands when they come.”

“Everything worked out fine, and I’m pleased with them. This last time I called them, it was for an electrical problem. I had a switch that was out in a ceiling fan. I use them frequently. I’m happy with them—they’ve done a good job. The owner of the company lives here locally, and I like to do business with local people if I can. ”

“They did electrical work, and it was good. One of the electrical sockets had gone dead. It was a bit tricky, but they identified the cause, and a repair was implemented quickly. The problem has been resolved, and we haven’t had any recurrences since.”

“I thought they were very reliable. They did a generator service. They showed up when they said they would. I can't honestly think of any complaints. I would recommend them to another homeowner.”

“I had Parrish for air conditioning maintenance work. I find them to be good. I have a service contract with them. I feel comfortable in the home when they come. They also did some electrical—just fixed some outlets that went dead, and a light that went dead. It wasn't anything major. They did plumbing, too. They fixed leaks under two sinks; one downstairs and one upstairs. They put in a new sink—the whole drain, basically. I would call them again if I had need for them.”

“I had some work done by Parrish Services. It was just a repair, and they showed up promptly and took care of it. This was in the last month.”

“I've used Parrish Services. They've done pretty well.”

“They did a great job on the electrical work. He was determined to find out what the problem was, and he did it in an efficient amount of time.”

“I last called them for electrical work. Everything has turned out good. I liked their response. Everything has been working out well.”

“I'm very pleased with Parrish Services. I had a generator installed. I've only had to call them back to do sort of a checkup to make sure everything was OK, since we're going into the winter months, or we're in the winter months. I have no real reason to complain at all. They're a good group.”

“Everything went just fine.”

“They did a great job. Nothing stands out. I think they fixed a plug that had been smoking in my house, if I remember correctly. Everything was fine.”

“I think Parrish Services is great. They have done everything for me, electrical and plumbing. That's who I would use if I need that type of assistance.”

“I was out of town when the work was done. It seems to work. Everything is working.”
