"Everything good"
ms rosch R.

"Josh always gives great explanations of what is going on with my system and addresses concerns that he comes across. Friendly and respectful."
mrs haas H.
rossville, illinois
"They were both very nice, but I don't really know what their recommendation was. They didn't seem confident that I would have heat even if I replaced the 2 parts they said I need. I've got 5 space heaters going and I don't know what my next move is. Again, they were very nice, and I appreciated that they came to Rossville. I really like your advertising and your website. Maybe my older boiler is just a lost cause. But I was hoping for heat and his recommendation was to "win the lottery.""

"The technicians did a good job. Through no fault of their own a part was missing from my customer provided bathroom faucet. They had to return a second time to install it once the part arrived. I am very dissatisfied with the second service call charged at full price. I think there shoould have been a major discount for the second service call. As we also have a furnace maintenence contract with this company we will continue to use them for that. However, we will not use nor recommend this company for any other work. For their second service call charge I rate them a 2 out of 10."
mr barber B.

"Matthew didn't mind the clutter in my house. Although he was there for a furnace check, he ALSO checked my 21 year old hot water heater and discovered both a roll out burn AND small gas leak. Finally, he helped me find the filter access for a whole-house dehumidifier that Woods Basement installed two years ago. It only took a minute, but was VERY helpful."

"The technician was very friendly BUT he for some reason tampered with my water heater which is below the furnace. He left the water heater open which leaked water into my downstairs neighbor apartment from 1pm when he left to 8pm when the leak was discovered. This is the 3rd time that a technician has not had a filter that would fit. I told this technician that I would not replace the filter until Spring because I do not wait to take another day off work just to wait for a filter to be delivered."

"Appreciated changing the humidifier panel and explaining that to me. Cost$74. Also discussed biological growth in coils. The cost of the HV light ($500) is very expensive. The cost if not addressed is $200 more. Not reasonable to think that someone has $500 readily to spend during a clean and check. Dont like the sales mentality. Also why does the furnace fan/blower come on when neither the air conditioning unit or furnace is turned on?"

"As for the people who came to my home, I am very satisfied. Buddy & Mitsy identified a probable contributor to my problem. The two technicians who did the work were also great. BUT the appointment for the work was for 8:30. Since I work at night, I slept a couple of hours and then got up so I'd be ready for the workers at 8:30. They actually came at 10:00. NOBODY CALLED ME FROM YOUR OFFICE. The technicians apologized and said there was a mandatory meeting--why a meeting when an 8:30 appointment was made???? Why didn't somebody from the office call me? Incredibly irritating."

"After having a less than satisfying experiencing the last time a Chief Bauer tech serviced our furnace (when we were pushed to buy a 1,000 dollar florescent light to get rid of alleged mold that was within our furnace), I was VERY pleased with our technician (Nick). He arrived within the scheduled time frame, was friendly, respectful, and NOT PUSHY at all whatsoever! He found everything in working order and did not even attempt to sell a product or service. He informed me of the free plumbing inspection that is offered with my PLUS agreement, but was simply informative and not at all pushy. I can't tell you how much I appreciate this and look forward to using your services again in the future (hopefully with Nick!)."

"the replacement of the hot water heater gets a 10, but the team replaced 3 valves as a preventive measure upon completion of the free plumbing inspection. We had to call the next day because one of the valves was leaking significantly. Scott came out to look at it. He called to confirm his plan for action and then made adjustments. We had to call again this morning to request the plumber come because it was still leaking (less, but still leaking). it is frustrating to have no problems, but replace items and them have the new ones leak."

maura R.
mahomet, illinois
"I was very pleased with the technician but I am not happy with the hot water heater Chief Bauer installed several years ago. It is now heating water well, however, I just found out yesterday from your technician that it seems to be heating water too well. He turned the thermostat up to between letter "A" and "B" as that is about 125 degrees (or it's supposed to be). By last evening the water out of our kitchen tap was over 150 degrees. We immediately turned the thermostat down and it's still entirely too hot today. It'll have to be turned down again. We've always had to have the thermostat turned fairly far down (no where near "A"). So, I am assuming the thermostat has always been incorrect. Since we first got the hot water heater it's not worked properly. I am so completely disappointed in Chief Bauer. We trusted you with our furnace, central air, and hot water heater. The only thing we haven't had issues with is the central air conditioning unit. Problems with 2 out of 3 is pretty bad. Chief Bauer will not be installing units into our home in the future."

"Overall, I am very satisfied with your service despite an initial issue I would suggest you discuss with your on call/emergency tech. On Sunday our cooling unit stopped working in extremely hot & humid weather. At 8:30pm I spoke with your office receptionist and she said an on call emergency tech would be out within the next several hours. After waiting until 5am, I called back because no one had been out or called. The receptionist said she would look into it & called back reporting the tech had gone home sick. I was very upset, it would have been courteous to have received a call from the tech that he wasnt coming. (My husband & I stayed up waiting, he had to go to work at 6am & I had to drive to Chicago without sleep!). However, the receptionist did a fantastic job handling the situation after this obstacle. She had Josh at our home in Heyworth by 9am. Unfortunately, the unit required a part out of stock. The receptionist and Josh worked together to get the part overnighted. She was wonderful and did everything in her power to resolve a horrible situation. She had another tech bring a temporary portable unit to our home and worked to get the part to our house ASAP. She called me early Tuesday and had Josh at our home by 11am with the new part. (I would also like to commend Joshs kind and professional conduct with my teenage daughter. With my husband at work & me out of town, my daughter was responsible for helping Josh find outlet boxes etc.). Despite the emergency o/c debacle, I was extremely satisfied with the service your receptionist and Josh provided. THANK YOU!!!"
