The company did respond to my request for service promptly. I had two problems that I requested to be fixed. I was shocked when I received the bill and disappointed when I questioned it. I will never call this company again. I feel being charged two service calls was unnecessary for what could have easily been handled by one plumbing, heating, and air "professional." When I questioned the excessive labor charge on one invoice (for less than one hour of actual work) I was told the worker starts charging labor by the hour when he leaves the company lot to drive to the client's house. I did not appreciate being charged extra labor due to the worker's lack of coming prepared to complete a standard repair. Since the plumber did not have two new screws for my toilet base with him, I assume I was charged the time for him to go and get two screws, come back to my house, and install. He did call to tell me it was an easy fix and I have had no further problems. Next time, I will find someone who is reasonably priced AND does a professional job. Unfortunately, since I do not get paid to drive to work, I do not have excessive income to pay someone while he travels to do his job and arrives unequipped to complete the job, consequently, costing me more for his time and travel.

I had some major plumbing issues (main stack replacement) that I had called several places in regards to and received very large quotes and was told major wall and potential tile damage could occur to get to and fix the problem from various plumbers. I was finally able to get a reasonable quote from Hacker Plumbing and though there was a little bit of a wait to get this scheduled, the kind lady who answered the phone did fit me in and I am so grateful! Not only was the plumber, (Alan), professional, prompt, and polite, but he was able to do all of the repairs within a reasonable amount of time with absolutely no tile damage and very minimal tear out on a small part of the wall to get to the pipes. I had thought I would be spending a lot of money on drywall repairs, painting, etc. and am so happy it worked out this way! I recommend Hacker Plumbing 100%.

Duncan mechanical replaced our HVAC system and did a fantastic job. He put in a high-end unit at a very reasonable cost that was much less than all of the other quotes we got. He was a true professional. We immediately cut our utility bill in more than half of what it was. And one other thing I really liked was the thermostat that I can change my temperature at anytime anyplace I want. Really really cool. And he helped me set iit up. I highly recommend this company.

My AC went out and every other company couldn't come out for days. Mike Duncan came out during another job they were doing to help. I can't be more pleased with him. Use this company, you will be pleased!
Tips & Advices
You can keep your air conditioner running efficiently with some preventative care measures. Shut off the power to your AC before cleaning it or performing any of these tasks:  clean your filter at least twice a year; remove leaves and twigs from cages; clean the fins with a garden hose or special spray, then use a butter knife to straighten any that are crooked; keep your yard clean so the fins won't get blocked; cover the unit up for winter; and make sure it's level or you run the risk of damaging the inner workings of the unit.
To clean your air conditioner drain, first shut off the power to your unit at both the thermostat and the breaker. Then remove the drain pan. If the pan is full of water, soak up the liquid with a few towels or rags or use a wet vacuum. You can use a solution of water and distilled vinegar, or substitute peroxide for the vinegar, to clean out the drain pipe. Let the pipe sit for a while in the solution and then put all the parts back in place. Once you start using your air conditioner on a regular basis, check it periodically to ensure condensation isn't building up.
If you happen to live in a hot and humid area of the country, drainage problems can occur with your unit since moisture can trap itself inside the system. Routine maintenance can cut down on drainage issues by cleaning out any mold or algae from blocking the drain. If you notice moldy smells whenever you turn the thermostat down, check on your system.
If you notice your system is acting inconsistently, the sensor is most likely out of place. Turn off the unit and reach behind its control panel while carefully bending the sensor back into place near the evaporative coil.
Find out where the noises are coming from. A banging or clanking sound could be due to a loose part. If you hear a hissing sound, it's most likely because of a refrigerant leak and you should contact an HVAC technician as soon as possible.
