"I had hoped that the estimated arrival time (10-12) would work. I didn't receive a phone call until 12:30, saying they were going to be late....I'd already figured that out. Had I known my morning would be free, I could have run some errands. At 1:30 the technician arrived, and things went well from there on. I realize estimates are just that.....estimated......and some jobs take more time than others. I just wish I'd been notified earlier."

"I wasn't present when the technician came on November 20, 2020 but my husband said that technician was saying that our flame sensor was dirty, which made it sound like it was caused by us and that we needed to renew our plan (which I'm sure it's a job requirement). Unfortunately, he didn't correct the flame sensor issue because less than a week later on Thursday November 26, 2020 (Thanksgiving Day) we were experiencing the same problem that the technician "supposedly" had fixed on November 20, 2020"

One of my gutter extensions had blown off in the strong winds and was laying in my yard. We were supposed to get heavy rain later that day. I am not able to walk on uneven surfaces yet. He spotted it in my yard and attached it back to my gutter for me. It took him just a few seconds but it was so helpful to me. I sooooo appreciated his kind gesture."

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 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.

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."

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."

He has warned me that the AC's run capacitor is functioning below ideal and I may have to replace it this summer, and quoted me a $99 fee for that (plus, I assume, a service call fee of some kind). He didn't mind chatting a bit with a lonely singled old lady, and shared a photo of his dogs when he found out my career is owner of C-U Pet Sitting Service. He was a delightful person."

edward estate E.
urbana, illinois
"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."

"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"
