Yes, I would recommend them. They were responsive. Probably about two workers. The workers were ok.

Description of Work
Tune up, and they installed the filter.

Category heating & air conditioning/hvac



Lousy, not only because of the technician sent but also the lack of customer service when I called Reel Strong to discuss the issue. They don't seem to back up their service especially with a longstanding customer.

Description of Work
Had appointment to have furnace cleaned in December 2016. Usually takes at over 1 hour and because it is an old oil furnace, there is always a distinct odor with the cleaning. Never been anyway different. I have been directly present for at least 20 cleanings and I know this to be a fact. Technician was in and out faster than one could say "furnace cleaning". Have had furnaces cleaned by Reel Strong company for 40+ years in 2 separate homes. The technician on this visit did not change air filter as required by job....he told me "it didn't need it" and when I questioned the technician further about the condition of the filter and chimney, he turned to his helper and told him "to go double check it, my eyes aren't that good". (Maybe you shouldn't be doing this type of work ??? What "else" can't you SEE). Helper brought filter upstairs and it was FILTHY...I could see it from across the room WITHOUT glasses. The furnace was not cleaned in the manner it was done in the past. When I called the company I was told by Mr. Crane that this particular technician was "fast" and when I told him that this type of service has never happened before Mr. Crane said he would send out Mike to double check the workmanship. Assistant in office confirmed in a later phone call that Mike was told to check my furnace and was given my cell phone number to stop in when he was in the area. To date, March 14 (3 months) this has NOT happened. I am wondering if Reel Strong really values its long standing customers who pay annual maintenance with no complaints and yet is NOT responsive when I contacted them 4 times about this issue.

Reel-strong did a great job. They were professional and clean. They showed up exactly when they said they were going to, and they minimized the intrusiveness of the ductwork allowing us to maximize our basement space. Their subcontractors operated with the same level of cleanliness and professionalism. Our inspections passed on the first try. We could not be happier with the services.

Description of Work
Reel-Strong installed air conditioning in our house (2 zones). We previously did not have air conditioning in our house, so they had to install the units and the duct work.

Every time I have had a problem with the furnace someone has come out right away and did a good job. Only issue I have is that one year we tried to get a filter system installed. The sales guy came out and gave me the estimate and showed me the brochure, but then even though I called and called leaving many messages, he never (over months) called me back with an installation appointment. Finally g...
