These guys are amazing. They arrived on-time, were polite/friendly, and finished quickly. Given the current state of things, they provided no contact service, work face masks, and gloves. Excellent service!
Very professional plumber group. Every step, from setting up an appointment, to the job itself was executed at 5 star levels. Install was thorough and the follow up after the job included a specific write up with many pictures to confirm findings. Best option in town.

I have had great luck with the plumbers sent to my home. Not only did Elvis m. and Frank M. take time to explain everything they, like the other people in your company were friendly and cooperative and worked fast and efficiently. Your workers are your strongest value to your company.

If your thermostat is definitely on and your heater is not working, it could be because of a variety of problems: dirty evaporator coils, clogged air filters, clogged pipes, broken wires, dead blower motors, burnt control board, or a lack of fuel.

There are a few things that could be wrong: circuit breaker settings, thermostat settings, clogged air filter, bad blower fan, or malfunctioning limit switch. First, make sure your thermostat is set to the right temperature. If it is, call a professional technician to diagnose the problem.

There are four main reasons why a thermostat would stop working: system overheating, coolant buildup, defective parts, wiring issue and old age.
