“I have used James A Wheat &Sons for years for both my HVAC and plumbing needs. Whether it’s routine maintenance or fixing a particular problem, they always provide me with excellent service. I wholeheartedly recommend them.”

Review by

“At first assessment the tech could not identify why there was an issue with my water heater. The controls were working and there was no error message on the computer components. He contacted the manufacturer for assistance. I am thankful that he reached out for help rather than just tinker around and make the issue worst. I will definitely contact James A. Wheat and Sons again if needed.”

“Our system was very problematic in the beginning, and it took a long time to get it straightened out. Also this survey is emailed to me, but has a very different name on it than mine.”

“First, you didn’t listen to what I was looking for, and the estimate was double that of a competitor. Also, you couldn’t even get my last name correct for this survey.”

“Good clear communication, dependable - arrive when they say they will, written estimates of all work. I have recommended James A. Wheat already to many people.”

“I have been a client for over 20 years. My last experience was horrible. They were supposed to replace a dryer part. They brought the wrong thing after I had been clear about what I wanted - a white not silver part. I put over 200 dollars down (1/3). I did not allow them to put this part in. I called - crying - talked to one of the sons. No one has followed up re getting a new part that is white, no one has reimbursed my down payment - nothing. So today, I would not recommend them even though I have recommended them for years. 1 bad customer experience such as this negates 20 years of ok to good service.”
