I recently had a water heater replaced by James and Joe from Boston Standard. They were on time, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. They completed the work within reasonable time. Haley kept me informed throughout the process from quote to installation, I’m now a permanent customer and will be looking into a maintenance plan soon. Thank you very much!!!

Boston Standard recently replaced our entire tankless hot water system, and they did an absolutely terrific job. Frank M. and Jorge were courteous, competent, and friendly. The installation is pristine; it’s weird to say this about a hot water system, but it actually looks beautiful. The guys also took care to really clean up after they’d finished the job, which was greatly appreciated. In short, I would absolutely recommend Boston Standard (and Frank and Jorge) to anyone in need of HVAC services.

Boston Standard helped me with a complicated tankless water heater installation. I appreciated how easy it was to get ahold of someone anytime. Everyone was super courteous and helpful, and they honored their original estimate even when some aspects of the job turned out to be more complicated than anticipated.

We needed to replace our boiler, which also provides hot water, in our condo. Boston Standard excelled in every step! The project was reviewed in detail and options were discussed, all in layperson terms. They were not simply pitching one most expensive plan. The proposal was very thorough and easy to understand. Scheduling was handled efficiently through the well trained and courteous office staff. The installers were fantastic – punctual, would explain what they were doing, professional and courteous.

I really admired the extra effort Boston Standard Company made to make it easier for me! A little over a year later, the same problem occurred again. They came out and saw that it was the same issue but the piece just needed some tightening. They fixed it at no charge! Their great customer service at going above and beyond makes me a repeat customer.
