Discover Our 5-Point Guarantee

What do we mean when we talk about “service excellence”? Our definition of service excellence is summed up in our 5-Point Guarantee, which includes promises about:

  • Design: When we make a recommendation on what types of systems will work best in your home, we stand behind those recommendations. If something proves to not be the right fit, or if it isn’t working properly, we’ll make it right.
  • Lemons: You should reasonably expect years of performance out of a boiler, air conditioner and other major home appliances you invest in. If we install something that gives out well before its reasonable lifespan, we make it right by installing a full replacement.
  • Frustration: Breakdowns in your home’s appliances can be incredibly frustrating. For example, when a water heater goes out and you’re left to take cold showers in January, that can be frustrating — if not infuriating. When we install a water heater or similar appliance and it leaves you frustrated within the first two years, we’ll make it right — and pay you $500 for the inconvenience.
  • Protection: Anything we damage while working in your home we either repair or replace. This includes carpeting, hardwood and tile flooring, walls, door frames, furniture and more.
  • Performance: We always offer a 100 percent money back guarantee. When we install equipment in your home and it does not meet your expectations, we will remove that equipment and pay you back every dime you spent on it.

    Sometimes, we make mistakes. And when we do, we own up to them. We have a list of satisfaction guarantees on the back of every service ticket. Our reputation matters way more to us than our revenue. When we mess up, we genuinely want to make things right.
