Everything about using John Betlem was pleasant, easy, and well worth it. Scott showed up on time. He was incredibly friendly and polite. He took me through everything having to do with my boiler, including recommendations. I had a few questions that were a bit out of the frame of the actual boiler (more to the line of the setup of everything in my utility room) and he gave me some great suggestions. He spoke to me as a peer, not as someone who wouldn't understand. He was just great.
Overall, my experience with Betlem was fantastic and I'm happy to continue using them.
I chose John Betlem for my heating and air conditioning needs, and I'm very pleased with the company and their employees. Everyone there is very friendly and knowledgeable and it is a pleasure doing business with them. Recently Aaron did the annual maintenance service at my home and he also rates five stars. I give John Betlem my Highest recommendation -- simply the best! You will be glad you called them.
Adam came to follow up on a service issue with my furnace & water heater. He quickly discovered the problem and corrected it! He was personable and professional. He made me feel at ease and helped me understand things about the workings of my home that I was not aware of. I had friendly & fast service from the first call for help, not just Adam but others in the Betlem team also. I'm so grateful for their expertise and I am going to use Betlem for all my Heating & Cooling needs.
Have used them twice now and each time, the tech has demonstrated regard for our home and has shown respect and professionalism towards us. The price for a furnace cleaning is much cheaper than Isaac. Additionally, the process didn't take as long as we anticipated, which was nice because we had Christmas shopping to do. We are considering having our AC tuned up this summer due to the wonderful treatment we received. Thanks John Betlem!
Paul was very accommodating. He had a cancellation and called to see if I wanted him to come early, or keep the scheduled appointment. He was very courteous. He answered the questions that I had. I have used John Betlem since 2003 and will continue to do so. It's always a great experience.
