I like that the same service person has been coming to my house since the beginning. They get to know what to look for and where and it's easy for them to follow-up. The office staff is pleasant, responsive and easy to work with. And they are very flexible about rescheduling when I need to.

The customer service representative I first talked to was cordial and fully answered questions I had about setting up the first meeting with the technicians. When the company representatives arrived, on time I'd like to add, they were very courteous, respectful and described the residential plans available and options for service. They were patient to answer any questions I had and were helpful in creating a plan of service. The technician visit was scheduled later at my convenience and also arrived on time. He explained what he would be doing and completed his work taking time to attend to some extra trouble spots which I really appreciated.
