10/10

Fridge went on the fritz. Edgar contacted me as soon as I submitted the Homestars quote request around 9am, and committed to come in the afternoon. He arrived a little before noon. I explained the symptoms, he did some diagnostics, and identified that the circuit board had a short and needed to be replaced. Ten minutes later the new circuit board was in and the fridge was back to normal. I appreciate the fast arrival and turnaround and the excellent customer service. He explained the issue clearly, was very courteous, and gave me a cost estimate before proceeding with the repair. He took the appropriate COVID precautions. This cost me more than it might have if I'd fixed it myself - putting in a new circuit board is pretty straightforward - but I would probably have waited a week for the part to arrive, then taken 10 times as long as Edgar to install it, and in the end I might well have messed it up anyway. Edgar had the part in his car (actually he came in with it from the get go) so the whole thing went extremely fast. Peace of mind is well worth the extra price!

Steve from The Duct Cleaning Specialists spent about four hours thoroughly cleaning out our heating ducts. He was courteous and seemed to do a very thorough job. He also explained to me several aspects of the job before, during, or after it was done. He cut a large hole in the cold air return and four small ones in one of the heating trunks, connected a big indoor vacuum to the furnace and turned it on high - blowing air into my basement from the suction, but it filtered through a huge bag and there was no dust - and then went to each vent and used a blower to blow dust towards him where it was vacuumed with a shop vac, or towards the furnace where the fan picked it up (I'm afraid I don't understand quite how it works, but he showed me a ton of dust so I'm sure it did!) This is a small, two-man team (Steve and Paul) and my understanding is they get all their business through word-of-mouth, unlike some of the bigger, shadier outfits that mostly do phone marketing. My only issue is that he sold me (for a mere $5) a filter for my ground floor cold air return, and neither he nor I thought to check that it was big enough, and after he left I discovered it doesn't fit properly. Old houses like mine (1920's) tend to have larger cold air returns than newer ones, and this filter has 1" gaps on either side of the long sides. Highly recommended, very professional.

Hey Robin, thank you for writing a review. I am happy that you were more than pleased with our service. On a side note, regarding the return air filter for the large vent on the floor, we shoudl have installed 2 filters, and cut the 2nd one smaller.. although a 1" gap on both sides is not really going to make a whole lot of difference, if any. These filters are never going to be a perfect fit, especially with the older homes. None the less, if you would like me to swing by and cut some filter to fill the gap, I would be more than happy to. Otherwise, thanks again for your business, it is greatly appreciated. Paul
