    "Last year we had to have our furnace replaced and we chose Choice Comfort for the job. The tech was very courteous and polite. The job was done in a timely manner and there was no mess left behind. When getting our tune up this year we found the water heater needed replaced. Within a few hours the new heater was in and again no muss or fuss. We would definitely recommend this company to anyone needing their services!"

    "On time and as advertised. Very happy with the equipment and service. Installers were great. This was to replace a 20 year old Carrier brand that was working perfectly but was probably getting to the end of it's life span.
    Also had the water heater replaced, no need to wait until it's an emergency."

We call your company and a technician came out and we all agreed that we needed a new furnance. Ours was 25 years old. There was no pressure and the technician got ours working temporarily. On Monday the installer was there on time and started disconnecting the furnace. The furnace was completely installed in the early afternoon. The installer explained the operation of the furnace. He also explained the rebates we qualified for. He then removed the drop clothes he had used and thanked us for the business. The entire experience with everyone at Choice Comfort was great!!!"

The workers were very courteous and always answered all our questions. The system is working and we are very grateful for the job that was well done. We would highly recommend Choice Comfort Services to everyone."
