Recent Review: A-1 fixed my issue the second time out. The first inspector didn't do a thorough job and had to call A-1 back to come out again (after I had my furnace repair person out again). The 2nd crew was very thorough and they ultimately found and removed the blockage. Pricing was a lot higher than I expected (almost 600) for the sweep and a new cap.

Recent Review: All of the kitchen work went off without a hitch. They were in and out in less than one week. The workers were highly professional and extremely talented. the Floor looks absolutely beautiful and the drywall was up and painted in two days time. The person who placed the drywall and painted was a true artist. I have never seen such excellent work. We has since asked for a quote on some additional taping and painting to be done in other areas of our home. He was that good. The new window we asked for has turned out even better than we had expected. We had an old window unit air conditioner unit that we had not used in years in the old window. The technician removed the old air conditioner and replaced the old window which had broken glass in it. We have been amazed at how this new window looks. It brightens up our entire living room and makes it look so much better. I cannot say enough about the talent that both workers brought to this house. The kitchen looks like a brand new one with just the additions we asked for. We were never talked into more than what we asked for. Other companies wanted us to remove all the cabinets and get new ones which we were not interested in doing. Handy Men & Mrs. Helper did exactly what we wanted. No more and no less. It has been a pleasure working with this company. They were a real change from normal contractors. They had only our interests in mind and not lining their pocketbooks at our expense. We have been extremely pleased with "Our new House". Thank you Handy Men & Mrs. Helper for a job well done and for such a pleasurable experience working with you. Don and Betty Delaney
Recent Review: i called them after the first plumber came and offered a quote suggesting the work be done without city permits. They came on a Saturday evening and did a no charge estimate. They opened the clean out and could see the pipe had separated and dropped about 2 1/2" . They insisted on getting permits. He gave me a price of $1850. I checked other prices over the phone on the following Monday and Duane Blanton was not the cheapest but not the most expensive. They agreed to come out on Christmas Eve to complete the job. when they came out and dug down, the pipe was pitched towards the house and had cracks in other spots. the job was now bigger and more work. they pulled guys of other jobs and spent the entire day fixing the pipe, and bringing it up to code with ductal iron in the wall. although it cost me double what was originally estimated they finished that same day and was even able to get the inspector out on his day off. i would have rated them higher but i wonder if the additional work was really worth double the price quoted. i had my back against the wall being it was a holiday and they had started the job
Recent Review: Did a very thorough inspection of my existing heating system. Took time to explain problems, options and recommendations. Did not send an estimate or contact me after the visit. Price rating is based on the costs discussed during the visit.
My central a/c wouldn't start. I called the company that ususally services my a/c and furnace. The person who they sent told me I needed a whole new unit, he couldn't repair the burned out motor on the condenser. After calling the company to get further information, I was skeptical, since they were trying to sell me a new unit. A friend recommended George, and after calling him, he was there within the hour, worked with an assistant on the a/c for about an hour, and all was well. He said the unit was very dirty and just needed cleaning and a new valve. He even went so far as to shut all my windows before he left. A great guy, great work and reasonably priced. He's on my list of go-to problem solvers!

FFour Seasons Heating & Air Conditioning
Called Four Seasons to simply have central A/C recharged for the season. Made appointment for service and was given a five hour window for when theyd show up to do the work. Never showed nor did they call. When I called after the fifth hour, was told tech was on his way. An hour later - six total - still no tech. I then called and cancelled the job.

He came out as promised. We used them one other time for the same air-conditioner check up. He recharged system and cleaned outside unit. I am so grateful he helped us nurse this 20 year old unit through another summer. Next season will buy my new central AC from them.

AShavitz Heating and Air Conditioning
The technician, Chris R. was professional, knowledgeable and explained what was needed to repair my central air conditioner. I really appreciated the quick response from Shavitz regarding my air conditioner. Our air conditioner stopped working the evening of 7/06/14 and Chris R. repaired it on the morning of 7/07/14! It was especially important, since the heat and humidity could have become a health problem.

Bill arrived right on time and quickly got to work inspecting the furnace end of the central AC system, then up to the roof to do the same for the compressors. He diagnosed that both the units (I have two separate AC systems on my building) were low on refrigerant and recharged each. While the AC units were recharging, he took a look at my dryer, diagnosing the parts that it would need to be repaired and we arranged for a follow up visit to make the repairs to the dryer (after the parts came in) and to do a recheck on the AC systems to make sure there isn t something else wrong other than a micro-leak.

AOneStop Pro Plumbing Heating Cooling & Electric
95degrees outside and my 17yr old air conditioner broke. With no referrals from friends or family, I spent two days googling HVAC companies & setting up appointments for quotes on a new furnace & air conditioner. One of these companies was ONESTOP PRO in Wheaton. From the beginning of the call Robert was different from all the other companies. After I asked for an appointment to get a quote, he asked me what was wrong with my old one, suggested a few things and thought it might be a quick fix. He asked if one of them could stop by that afternoon to look at it and would also provide a quote for a new system. Daniel & Juan stopped by a few hours later...both with the same pleasant, polite attitude that Robert had. And remember, its 95degrees outside....they are hot & working very long hours. Daniel took the cover off the ac unit, fiddled with a few things and 10 minutes later told me it was probably the capacitor. Less than an hour later I had a working air conditioner and my house was cooling down. None of the other companies asked me what was wrong or offered to look at it. This fix might only get me thru the summer, or I may get 5 more summers, either way it bought me some time to research furnace/air conditioners and to save up some money. I appreciated the prompt and fair service. They will now be my family’s company of choice for HVAC, plumbing and electrical problems.

The repairman was on time, professional, and efficient. My central air conditioner was back in service within an hour. I would hire him again.
