Tech arrived on time, and proceeded to diagnose the problem, which was that system was low on refridgerent. Added 3 LBS of R-22 to system, no further problems to date.

The only reason I gave them a "B" in responsiveness is because I thought they were supposed to call me under this new rapid connect plan... I bought it 23

2014, submitted by dates, but did not hear from them. I called on either 13 or 14 Feb, and they responded quickly by coming out on the 18th. I think I will just ignore the rapid connect thing and just call next time.
Foster's did everything they said they would do in a professional manner. When I buy these preventative service deals, I like to watch and ask lots of questions so that if I want to do the same maintenance in the future, or if a problem pops up, I have a better understanding of the equipment. The Foster's technician patiently answered all of my questions and taught me about hot water heaters while we waited for the hot water heater to drain. He also checked the vents in my attic, and all of the fittings for my toilets and sinks.

I called for an appointment and immediately received an answer. They had great appointment times starting at 7:30 am and I was able to get an appointment quickly for a Friday at 7:30 am. The plumber showed up a little after 7:30. He was professional and introduced himself. He went through each room with plumbing and checked it out. He checked under the house. He also drained the water heater.
I wish they had a checklist of what they checked similar to what HVAC and termite inspections have. I am not sure if he checked my propane fireplace or not. However, he said that everything looked good. I had a wet spot on my kitchen ceiling which he didn't mention. Not sure if it was because he didn't see it or he didn't think it related to plumbing.
As far as the inspection, I think it went fine. However, because I knew I had issues that needed to be resolved, I didn't feel totally comfortable that I would get the service I desired. Both my upstairs and downstairs tub/showers drip constantly. He did notice that. I don't get hot water out of my tub downstairs so it can not be used in the winter. I took off the handle to the shower upstairs to get to the hot water. He gave me a quote to replace both knob/valve units as well as to repair them. I shared with him what information about the parts I had received from a friend. I tried to give him the part number but he didn't seem interested. I asked if I could get the parts, he said I could. I asked if he could verify the part number by looking at it. He said that he would have to charge me $120 to take off the cover to get the part number.
I think at this point I got a little confused about how this was going to work. I wasn't sure how he was going to repair something if he didn't verify what valves were in there to start with. I also didn't feel comfortable ordering parts if they didn't verify it. If I ordered the wrong parts, then I would have to pay for the service call to be told the parts were wrong. I did not want to pay $120 to have him do a 10 minute job to verify a part. I would not have minded the offer to pay the $120 upfront and to have at least some of it refunded if I booked the job with them. I would have thought that was fair.
I did not feel assured that if I decided to have the parts replaced that it was even possible or that it would work. I felt like he was there to do just that job but not take care of me as a customer. Nor, did I feel like he used that service call to engage future business. I think it was a missed opportunity for the company. They missed out on extra business as well as having a regular customer.
I ended up calling another provider.

(owner) did a fantastic job in all aspects. I'm a technical person so i was following along with his recommendations. He politely told us that the other person's recommendation would not have corrected our problem. He was very pleasant, on time, estimates were reasonable and the work was top notch. I would recommend

My heat pump has been coding into emergency heat mode at an unusual frequency which caused my electrical bill to double. This started in 2011. I had 2 service providers come out on 4 different occasions to correct the problem. The said I needed a replacement part, that although under warranty the service was going to cost me $900. Both service providers told me the same thing. I mentioned it to the serviceman from

and he said that it could not be that because it would cause an issue with the air conditioning as well as the heating. He changed a jumper that was causing my unit to move into defrost to quickly.
My unit has been running quieter and my electric bill is back to normal. Not only was the service better, but it was the same as what I paid the other two companies each time they came out.

When I got home from work yesterday, my furnace was not working. I called my home warranty company and placed a claim. This morning I still had heard nothing from the heating company, so I called again. Their local service provider couldn't get to us until tomorrow - more than 36 hours later. So, I called

and Cooling about 9:00 AM this morning and they came before noon, replaced the igniter and I now have heat!!! The lady that took my call was very nice, as was the repairman. The price was steep but for emergency service, its probably the going rate.
I have cancelled my home warranty with Cross Country Home Services. don't ever buy their coverage!

I pay every month for a home warranty with Total Protect. My claim was filed Tuesday night. We have spent one night without heat, but that does not seem to matter to

Homeowners do NOT waste your money with Total Protect home warranty. They couldn't care less about your well being or the service you receive....More /> I called another company (

The guys had a real challenge figuring out why we were having the problem with a top of the line fairly new system. They finally figured out that the thermostate was not the correct one to communicate with the system. On top of that, the ductwork was the original builder ductwork and was a mess - confusing, wrong sizes, and inadequate returns. ...More /> We now have mostly new ductwork, an additional return, automatic dampers and 2 new thermostats. I had no idea that they could create 2 zones (or as many as you want) from 1 system. The difference is amazing. I can't wait till next summer to compare the utility bills!
I have learned sooo much just talking to these guys. They can work on all kinds of old systems, like boilers, in the old historic homes and can do all kinds of restoration chimney work. These guys are not your "average" HVAC. They are true master technicians and artisans.

arrived a few minutes early. He was very thorough in checking the AC units, my intake filters, and my thermostats. He made adjustments as necessary, and added Freon to one unit. He also was willing to check my second unit at no additional cost. I thought he was very professional. He needed to use a small pointed object to open one of the filter grates. He asked if it would bother me if he pulled out a pocketknife to help him open the unit. I appreciated his concern that his actions could potentially be viewed as threatening and he made sure that it was all right before pulling out his pocketknife.

explained that he could fix plumbing problems, electrical problems, and perform whole house inspections. While at my house he attempted to fix a running toilet by cleaning the flapper in the tank. Unfortunately, that didn't solve the problem but I appreciate his willingness to try. This was completely extra effort and not part of my AC check!
