Tech was here for 40 minutes to install an outdoor hvac disconnect that I provided. I was charged $264 for labor plus $89 service call. When I spoke to Ken the service manager to inquire about their hourly labor rate he was less than sympathetic. I pointed out that my labor bill reflected a rate of

GenX was great. They responded quickly and authorized replacing the damaged control board, even though Generac said that it should not be covered since having ants is like getting struck by lightening. I don't know how often folks get struck by lightening but in Chicago having ants is an annual

Sam arrived on time and he was very professional. He answered all my questions and also made good recommendations. After finishing the tune up, I shared with him that I can smell gas in the laundry room or outside the house from time to time for the last year. He immediately checked the connections

It went very well. Our timing to purchase the generator was not good though. Just as we decided we needed one, there was a big storm on the East Coast and then another in California and you could not buy a generator in Illinois. Jack bird-dogged the availability of the generators for several months

During a power outage, our whole house generator didn't start. I had no prior experience with Armbrust, but called them as they are local. I got a quick call back from Patrick, who had a few questions about the model (20RESA) to enable him to order parts. He told me up front that he was doing this

John and Stephan did a great job! They performed the following tasks: changed an electric panel in condo unit, add few electric lines and changed few light fixtures. They are very DEPENDABLE contractors, who always arrived on time. I will use them again and highly recommend them to other customers.

Technician appeared knowledgeable and was willing to take the time to explain procedures in detail. This was an emergency assessment of our AC which had stopped working over the weekend. Part of the diagnosed problem was low refrigerant. Technician replaced 7lbs of R22 Freon at $175 per pound. It

What do customers in Chicago say about Generator Installation?

I met with Don and he worked with me on the price and configuration for a GE unit. However, the unit we agreed upon would not be approved by the Wilmette Village so he switched it to the Kohler unit. During this time, communication was irregular and only updated when I asked. The installation did not go well. The installer parked on the edge of my parking pad and crushed the lip but afterwards Don claimed no responsibility and was quite aggressive about it. They poured the concrete pad high to make it level rather than dig down on one side and I had to put in a raised bed to accommodate it. The generator housing was somehow bent during installation and 10 months later they replaced the hinges and its now able to close. The gas lines were never buried properly. They know (sales and installers) what they were doing and it operates properly.
