Finding competent contractors and repair people in any large town is a serious task. Dallas is no exception.
As I explained in a recent post, Patty and I have had to have some major repairs and updating done to our home, Uncovering contractors and repair people who would live up to our expectations was difficult at best.
In yesterday's post, I passed on to you the name of an excellent electrician. Today, I want to tell you whom we chose for our air conditioning and heating contractor, and why,
For the past three years, our central air compressor has had a freon leak, and about every three months we've had to have it pumped back up. Either none of the repair people we called knew how to repair the leak, or they didn't want to. I don't know which. However, we even dropped our American Home Shield contract because they refused to have their service people get to the cause and repair it once and for all.
So last month we decided it was time for our Carrier unit to go, and to be replaced with a new unit, and further, we thought it should be increased from a 3.5 ton unit to a 5 ton unit. We knew our duct work, etc., could carry the larger load.
Patty insisted that we get bids from at least four companies. We got seven instead. Two of the bidders' bids were out of line by more than $1,500. One never called back. Another was totally inflexible in how his company would do the work.
The company whose representatives were the most professional was Quigley Heating and Air Conditioning, an organization that has enjoyed a fine representation in Dallas for three generations, and at last check had the Dallas Better Business Bureau's A+ Rating.
Their salesman, they call him a "Comfort Consultant," had come up through the ranks. He had been an installer and repair man before he went into sales. He knew his stuff, and we were impressed.
It was obvious to Patty and me that Quigley should get our business even though they were a bit higher than our second choice. Changing out the unit required a great deal of modification, and the combined expertise of seven men. The mechanical brains of the Quigley organization is John Cunningham, a seasoned old bird like me, who designs your new system and then rides herd over the installation crew.
We went from a Carrier to a Trane. It works great!
So, while I can't promise that your experience will replicate ours, when you need heating and air conditioning repairs and replacement, call Quigley. I'll bet you'll pick the Quigley Team
