The bottom line is if I spend $26,500 I expect to have a unit that is not going to blow up in one year ! I had a simmilar unit installed by another company in Baltimore which has been running for 7 years without any problems. I believe
I will NEVER recomend this company to anyone. Additionally I had planned to put AC in the basement unit of my house and I will make sure to use another more trustworthy company, and not
we knew how to properly operate the gas fireplace (it is an older model and hadn't been used in years). They also made sure to point out the importance of installing a CO detector and advised on placement.
I am certain that I will be using them for any work related to this field in the future. Scheduling with them was a breeze, both groups were right on time, and they even called when they were on their way over to the condo. I'm eager to get started!
along the way. When something didn’t work they didn’t waste any time researching and figuring out the best way to retrofit
something into my old condo. I am a residential architect who deals with contractors and subcontractors all of the
time and would highly recommend these guys to any of my clients!
.temp readings, air flow pressure, motor amp readings and several other test. He advised me on several areas of my AC system and was extremely thorough. I was very impressed by his professionalism and knowledge. I would be confident to use
The technician checked faucets, toilets and the shut-off valve. He took a look at a pipe on the 2nd floor which my handyman said had a leak. There was no leak initially so the technician said he would flush the water heater and then return to inspect the pipe on the second floor (while I left the water running on the second floor).
The technician asked me to sign the waiver for the hot water heater flush (due to its age) and review his report. The report mentioned the washing machine and noted it had a gray hose. I signed the report. While he was finishing with the water heater, I asked about water under the washing machine. The technician said the draining hose was too short so there was splashing when it drained. He said it might be possible to get an extender but he wasn't sure it would fit.
I asked a few more questions about the washing machine and the technician admitted he had not actually checked it. He assumed it was a gray hose based on the model. He said there was a $150 charge to pull the stacked washer/dryer away from the wall to check the hose because he would have to get the handcart from the van. I said I thought it was included in the inspection deal, but he said the person who wrote that didn't know what kind of washers customers have, The technician offered to call the office to have the charge waived, which I confirmed that I would like him to do. He put me on the phone with his manager who said they would not waive the charge, even after I explained that the technician included an assumption in his report. The manager said he could ask the technician to remove that reference in the report, which I said NOT to do as I wanted proof that they included assumptions in what was supposed to be a factual report. He said he would speak to the technician as assumptions should not be included in the report. He also said it was a two-man job to move the washer & dryer - which the technician never mentioned when he said he'd have to get the handtruck out of his van in order to check the washing machine hose.
After we hung up, the technician informed me that there would be a charge to look at the upstairs pipe. I asked why I wasn't told that earlier, and he said he worked on commission.
I was planning to use
(a) the technician included an assumption in his report rather than checking the hose
(b) I was told there was a $150 charge to inspect my washing machine hose even though it is listed as #6 in the list of what is included in the whole house plumbing check. The fine print makes no mention of the possibility of an additional charge to check the washing machine hose based on the type of washer.
(c) The technician initially told me he would check the leaking pipe on the second floor, and then AFTER I spoke to his manager, decided there would be a charge. This was clearly retribution for complaining to his manager that he included an assumption in his report.
I appreciated the most that he did everything in a few hours. He was able to call someone from the company and have them deliver the parts (e.g. Lyric) that we hadn't initially requested and weren't in his truck. He stayed until the job was completely done.
Excellent technician, excellent company. I would highly recommend!!
them to tune-up a toilet that was working and flushing, but maybe could fill a
bit more quickly. ARS (who really is the authorized repair company for this
deal) came over and quoted me a price of $460 USD to replace the innards of
this standard toilet. Trust me - a new "Complete Toilet Repair Kit"
cost $19.98 at HomeDepot.com. (Look it up yourself.) I could do this work in
20min and I suppose a professional plumber could do it in 10min. If they did
the work, there was still no guarantee that the toilet would fill more quickly.
I just went to HomeDepot and did the work myself. I still had
to pay them $59.95 for their visit - because the coupon only applies IF they
actually perform the work - which they did not in my case. I still have this
stupid coupon which is worthless because if ARS is doing work for you then you
are by definition being ripped off substantially. Everyone was professional and
well rehearsed on the scam.
I wonder why the coupon says
