Technician was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great experience.
Josh was very thorough and answered all my questions. I feel better prepared to make sn informed decision.
My experience with the Sears team has been excellent! I first learned about Sears through my next-door neighbor who has a recent full HVAC install. My neighbor also shared her Mother and Dad have been customers since the 1950's. It is this strong devotion to excellent customer service and professionalism that has kept my neighbor and her family coming back to Sears year after year! Service after the sale is not dead with this organization! I had been having some crazy high bills over the years even before the recent Columbia Gas rate hikes and grew even more concerned over the years when I began to have strange symptoms whenever I was at home. I always felt better away from my home when I was working at the hospital. I now believe it has been low-grade symptoms of CO poisoning- as a healthcare provider I should have put this together sooner! My tech Josh was immediately able to diagnose a cracked heat exchanger that when damaged can leak CO into living spaces or start a fire. He also discovered the capacitance system is below specifications due to poor install from another company- another efficiency and safety hazard. Josh basically with his detective work saved my life from CO poisoning and possible fire as the units in my building had NEVER been serviced by the owner since 1999 install. I am so deeply grateful to Josh and his company. Also, all of my work with the office team and even VP Bryan Meier has been deeply satisfying. This is a company and team that simply loves what they do with a team they love as family- I even feel like they treated me as a family member. If I could give all the stars from heaven for this review I would do it!
Josh was amazing! Walked me through all the issues and recommendations. No pressure just great service.
John did a great job explaining all issues and delivering cost effective solutions.
Josh always provides great service and really helpful information about our gas fireplace. He makes regular maintenance and repairs a wonderful service experience.
Josh is very competent and a pleasure to work with!
Cody, was very professional and engaging. He was really thorough and patient about what he was doing and why. That young man (Kody), also have me very interested in purchasing a furnace surge protector….I’ll be calling the office soon about scheduling an appointment to get one installed. He should be considered a valuable asset to your company. Respectfully, Daniel
The furnace part replaced costs only $25 at most, but Cody charged me $269 plus $79 for coming in to check the problem. This is highway robbery!
Response from Sears Heating & Cooling:
Hi Frank-I'm sorry you feel this way. The price you paid is the cost for us to send a fully licensed and trained tech in a fully stocked truck (on a weekend no less) to your home to fix your furnace. You could have declined the price if you did not agree with it. If we only charged $25 for a repair, we would not be able to pay employees let alone offer them healthcare for them and their families. I would encourage you to call around to other local HVAC companies and compare pricing as I assure you that we are competitive, otherwise we would not still be in business after 72 years. The cost you paid covers the parts, labor, company overhead and a 10% profit. I think 10% profit is fair for the service we provide. Thanks for your comments and we wish you the best in finding another HVAC company that suits your needs.
Josh explained the issues and went out of his way to finish the job on one service call!
We recently moved back into the area and when it comes to anything related to HVAC our choice was simple! Sears Heating and Cooling! Professional, thorough, and made appropriate recommendations given the age of our furnace. Simple transaction and confident going into the Winter.
Josh was great. He answered all my questions and provided very good advice on a new system we plan to do next year.
Josh has come to our home twice to service our Mitsubishi mini- split. He is very thorough, professional, personable and remembered our dogs name and gave her a treat! She loves when he visits and she is picky!! We will continue to request Josh and also plan to transfer our other service needs ( ac and furnace) to Sears because of Josh. He is the Best!!
