“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.”

Review by

“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.”

“They seemed to come promptly. They definitely do heating and air conditioning for us. We have a standing maintenance contract with them, plumbing, basic work with heating and air conditioning. I'd give them an A- overall. They’ve done work that's been very routine.”

Review by
08/17/2017

“They're very prompt, very thorough, and knowledgeable. They did plumbing, they installed a hot water heater. Six months later they did some regular maintenance. I'd give them an A+ overall.”

Review by
08/17/2017

“It depends on the plumber who actually comes, and they tend to be almost like salesy in the way they try to do their services. I would grade the overall experience with a B-. I would not recommend them to a friend.”

Review by
08/17/2017

“I liked that they are always on time. They did general plumbing and heating and air conditioning, actually, more heating and air conditioning than anything else. I would grade the overall experience with a B+. I would very likely to recommend them to a friend.”

Review by
08/10/2017

“They are very responsive, and if you have a problem, they get right away and take care of it. We've used them for both HVAC and plumbing issues, and they've been really good. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by
08/10/2017

“They're very responsive when coming out. They've always done a very thorough job. They are expensive but I haven't found an alternative to provide the service level at that expense. I wish they were a little more reasonable but they do a good job. I think they have our plumbing contract so they check water, they replace faucets, fix toilets, that sort of thing. I'd give them an A overall.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“I liked that they were responsive, they were competent, they were professional, and they did a job. I know we had some furnace work done. I know we had a couple of things taken care of with the air conditioner, and then some insulation. So, it was a number of different things, so it worked out well. I would grade the overall experience with an A. We were satisfied with everything. I would highly recommend them, because we have a contract with them.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“They just do good work and they are here on time. When I first moved in here 17 years ago, they installed a brand new hot water heater. They came by during the winter and checked out the system. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. I am extremely likely to recommend them, and have recommended them to others.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“They were on time, took care of it right away. We used them for plumbing and we used them for A/C replacement. Overall it was a great experience. Under the sink, there were broken pipes and they fixed it. They couldn't fix our heating because our A/C ifs really old, it was dying. They fixed it temporarily but the guy was up front and honest, you know, ‘this is going to be a temporary fix, I don't think it's going to be OK.’ We have a 25-year-old A/C installed. I'd give them an A overall. I love these guys. We never had issues. I really liked their services; we had an emergency and they were out here right away. The guy was over here at like 6:00 at my house and the other time I called, they couldn't find anybody at first but they were able to find an opening because someone cancelled, and they sent somebody our way and I really appreciated that.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“The people were very proficient. When they say that they're going to be here, they were on time and they did what they were supposed to be doing. We had two contracts with them, one was for the plumbing and the other one was for the heating. We had no problem with them. Of all the things, they were professional and they did what they were supposed to be doing, so I think I would probably put them on as excellent. That's what we normally expect from the contractors that we bring into our house. I would recommend them.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“I don't have any problems with them. They installed the vents. They did some conditioning and heating and one time they did plumbing. I think they deserve an A overall. I don't have any complaints. I think they're really good. Everything is fine.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“My wife said they were satisfactory. I'd give them an A+ overall. They did a great job. They did some plumbing work. They changed the valves in the shower in the master bathroom. They did it quickly, he did it neatly and we're very happy with it.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“They're fine. They've been great. They've done heating and air conditioning stuff for us and plumbing. All three and repair. I think they might have also done replacement. We've been using them for a while. Nothing crazy with the plumbing. I would say an A.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“I do know that they did some work for me. Well, they're efficient, they're timely, they're capable. their products work and they bring Carrier. It's an A. They did a furnace and hot water heater. I would recommend them, and if I want to replace my air conditioner I would probably call them.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“They were efficient, that's the main thing. They came when they were supposed to, and they did the job and everything is fine. They fixed our air conditioning, and then I had problems with my washing machine, and they fixed that. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“I've used them for many years and I'm happy with them. They've done my air conditioning servicing, and installations, and some plumbing work. I'd give them an A- overall.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“I liked that they were prompt, they came on time, they responded, and they did the job. They worked on the plumbing. I would grade the overall experience with an A+.”

Review by

“They have repairing the plumbing and HVAC. They worked on the toilets. I would grade the overall experience with a C. HVAC was fine, but plumbing had issues.”

Review by
08/08/2017

“The last experience I had wasn't the most positive. I wouldn't want to rate it. It just wasn't that great. They did plumbing work for me in the past. The last job I had involved Michael. They made things right, but it wouldn't without putting me through the mill first, so I don't plan to work with them again.”

Review by
07/27/2017

“Well, they did what they said they were going to do. They quoted the price and they installed a new water heater and everything's been working fine since. There was initially a problem with the installation; one of the pipes essentially sprung a leak at a junction and they came and took care of it. They came in, actually, it was a problem over the weekend and they came in and took care of it over the weekend. It was much appreciated. I'd give them an A overall.”

Review by
07/27/2017

“They just do my heat pump. I think they're pretty thorough. I think they're pretty fair. I don't know much about that. They're timely. They're not cheap but I think I'm getting a fair deal. They actually put in a heat pump for me so they check it in the fall and the winter and I think they've done a little plumbing for me. I'd give them an A overall. I had no complaints with their cleanliness, punctuality, or customer service.”

Review by
07/27/2017

“I'm fine with it. I mean we don't have a problem with them. They come, and they take care of our problems. We have them twice a year, and they take good care of what we need, so I can't think of any complaints, and we've had them for many years. I don't have any complaints to tell you. They did put in a water heater, and we have a gas heater, gas in our fireplace, and they take care of that, so they take all that for us. We'd give them an A. They're fine. I just don't have a problem with them.”
