Payless Plumbing and Heating
Our central AC stopped blowing cold air. We noticed the fan on the unit stopped running. We went with Payless Plumbing because of the good reviews.Made it on time for appointment and was very responsive with communication. I would prefer to be told the price of repair after checkup to see if I wanted to proceed. Didn't think it would be that much as I watched him install a generic capacitor. I thought maybe that's why he went ahead and did it without telling me the price.I was definitely surprised when my total came to $289 some less than 30 minutes later. This was the price for part, labor and diagnostic. Called around afterwards to check if this is the normal rate. The ones I contacted quoted $150 for parts and labor including diagnostics. I definitely feel overcharged and will try one of the other companies I contacted next time there's a problem. I'm looking for a reliable company I could trust to turn to, and this one is unfortunately not it.

William L. Harper & Son
They've been doing work for my family for over 40 years. The rates are fair, and the work is always done correctly the first time. They are also pleasant to deal with, a real plus in this day and age. I recommend them to anyone.
Tips & Advices
  • Are you licensed and registered?
  • Are you insured and bonded?
  • How many years have you been in business?
  • What, if any, professional associations do you belong to?
  • May I have a list of references?
  • Do you offer a written warranty for your work?
  • Will I need a permit for this work?
It is important to have a written warranty for any work or repairs done to the plumbing in your house, especially if it is a major repair. Look for a professional  who is willing to  stand by his or her work.
Before you hire a plumber, contact their past customers if you're able to. These people can be a wealth of information if you ask them the right questions. Pose the following queries to these former patrons when you get the chance:
  • Were you pleased with the work done?
  • Was the project completed on time?
  • Did the plumber give you a written warranty and guarantee his or her work?
  • Were there any unexpected costs that arose?
  • Would you hire this plumber again? If not, why?
A permit provides added assurance that the work is done correctly. Having this in place means an inspector will check the work your contractor or plumber does to ensure he or she did the job correctly. If you plan on putting your house or commercial building on the market, a real estate agent and prospective buyers will want to check any large work you did to make sure it was done properly.
A trustworthy plumber will have both commercial liability insurance as well as be bonded. The insurance and the bond protects the plumber from paying for any damages made to your house out of pocket. Having professionals that carry both of these policies can protect all of you from any mishaps that could occur while they work on your building.
