"technician did spend about 45 min on my furnace tune- up only reason I gave a 4 an not lower. technician was very aggressive and close to rude on trying to sell me on the maintenance agreement. he was so focused on selling the maintenance agreement he seemed put off to answer my questions about the efficiency on how my furnace was running. He came across as someone who was almost predicting my furnace was going to have problems and that is why I should sign the maintenance agreement. My furnace is less than 10 years old and was purchased from you guys."

"This was an extended repair with 2 major components that required replacement. There was a mix up over parts that extended repair time, but Scott was focused and worked diligently through the several issues that arose.

"The service rep did a flush and used my washing machine's drain for the flush. Apparently, though they moved the washing machine back into place, they did not hook back up the drain. I just started laundry for the first time since the service visit and now have a huge water mess that I will have to clean up overnight and possible water damage to look forward to."

"This is a problem from the time when you put our new furnace in. You never told us that it required a drip. When our sump pump went out it hurt the furnace. But the problem is yours because you never told us our new furnace required a functioning sump pump. I consider this false selling on your part."

"One slight problem- your tech must have turned off our gas and checked the igniter for restart. Now my gas fireplace pilot is out and I cannot relive it. According to Jesse, the pilot should stay lit year round. My husband really needs the heat of the gas fire logs to stay warm. Could a Chief tech come to relight it for me? I have a torn knee ligament and cannot kneel to relight it. Oopsj"

"The guys did a good job of checking out the new furnace. They were knowledgeable Professional and friendly. The only reason I did not give them a 10 is that they wanted to sell me a surge protector for the furnace. I am on the plan where I am basically leasing the furnace, it is not mine, it belongs to Chief. If it needs a surge protector then that should have part of the installation. If it still needs it then it should be installed as a retrofit at no charge to me."

"Jeremy was engaging and seemed technically capable to a point. However, despite the company's advertising that they could service home well systems he was ultimately unable to prime the system and get water flowing after installation and I was forced to pay an additional $220 from a local Well Drilling company prime the pump to get water flowing. While speaking with the Well company I learned that: the system quoted and installed was over-sized (the pressure tank), likely over-priced by some hundreds of dollars, and that no documentation was provided on the pressure tank nor was there mention of the multi-year warranty for the tank."

"The technicians worked to get system working, however the emphasis on age of system over the specifics of the operational problems cause me to question the sincere effort to repair versus the "sales pitch" and insistence to charge "diagnostic fee". I was also told that the capacitor was replaced on Friday night, but I guess they took it off when the system breaker was tripped, because then a capacitor was put on Monday. Questionable reports."

"The problem with our AC was diagnosed quickly. The tech and advisor who came out were very professional and clean. Came with masks and booties on. They were the very model of integrity by suggesting we call the original installers to help us save $, even though it wasn't Chief Bauer."

"First thing ... the reason Ive waited so long to do this is to prove the point that the secondary heat exchanger IS not cracked and I DID NOT need a new furnace which was advised by your technician and your salesman that came to my house the next day to sell me a new furnace. Matt came out and never checked the flute or anything outside or in the attic. He went straight to furnace and took apart to get to secondarily heat exchanger. Told me it was cracked and needed new one, but then could not quarentee me that furnace would work after $1200.00 part from your company. So I agreed to talk to salesman and get new furnace. $5000.00 quote. My furnace is less was less than ten years old!! Thank God !!! Thank God!!! The financing did not go thru due to me just buying this house and only me here to pay for this. I then called out Kelso heating and cooling in St. Joseph Il. Wow!!! They went straight to my attic and also outside to check flute and ventilation! Guess what! There was a large chunk of ice in pipe so therefor furnace was shutting itself off due to preventive reasons. So it is now 06/2020!!! I still have same fur car working perfectly and have spent a total of $300.00 for three visits from Kelso heating and cooling and I am SO PLEASED that KELSOS dDID NOT lue to me and try and rip me off! I have passed this along to many people hoping they choose anyone over chief bauer!!! Thankyou for your time Lori Forster"

"They had a tendency to stand kind of close while talking (considering the pandemic conditions). I guess they were also so flustered that they drove off without their tools. But, they did come back, close up the outside AC unit, and collect their things after I called them and pointed it out."

"It took 3 attempts and almost a week to get the service done. They originally brought the wrong part. They refused to call me ahead of time so I could meet the technicians there. I was lied to over the phone about the cost and grossly overcharged for 1 hour of work by 2 people. $1300 for labor. Part was under warranty."

"Matt showed me photo of biological growth and explained that to fix the problem was to get a UV light - but when I called the office and talked with Jeremy and asked what would cause the growth (never had this issue on previous system or current system) was told it was because it's wet in the AC unit. I feel like the UV light setup is expense and does not address the cause of the problem. Explained that our $12,000 top of the line system can't seem to get the humidity under 60%. If there is concern about air quality or mold - why shouldn't it be tested and removed. After 30 minutes on the phone felt that my concerns where not heard."

"Scott (svc) was excellent. Your service technicians are great. However was not informed in advanced that a sales person (Misti Meiners) would be with him. Would not have agreed to that because my husband must not have exposure to Copvid-19. Because of Scott's explanation of cost and age of my A/C system I called Misti back and invited her to come and take measurements and discuss the options the next day. She brought a tech (that's 4 people from Bauer in 2 days) and she spent 1 hour & 15 minutes taking measurements and trying to figure out what system should replace what we have because the space is small. Again, because of Steve's health and my prior appointments, I told her I did not want a long conversation after waiting for over an hour about the proposal, I wanted it to be email to me with all the appropriate details. I have yet to receive the email with the proposal and frankly have concerns about Misti's expertise since she was in her car researching via the Internet what A/C options for our home. If we install a new system this year, it will have to be installed soon since we may be traveling after Mid-May. But I would like someone else Scott or someone with technical expertise to talk to me about what system I should get, why it is preferable, what the cost will be including replacing the UV light, and how quickly it can be installed."
