Review by Daniel N. in Thornhurst, PA
Project: Repair or Service a Heat Pump
Back in April 2016, I hired Lou Garbo to diagnose and repair my heat pump problem. Lou diagnosed the problem as a bad compressor and he would have to order a new one. During this visit, Lou changed the wiring in our thermostat and the heat strips and left. Later that day, one of the 2 circuit breakers for the heat strips kept tripping and 2 days later, the other circuit breaker kept tripping. I immediately contacted Lou and he came back 6 days later. Lou had much difficulty trying to repair the wiring issue and eventually overcharged me for work performed and some materials he used. I have since disputed the credit card payment to him and I would not recommend that he do any work for anyone as he is somewhat messy and quick to bill for his lack of knowledge.
Response by Garbo's Heating & Cooling, LLC: I was the 3rd contractor you had work on the system. It was never wired correctly, until I rewired it. You had an unsafe situation with indoor romex, running underground to the system. Once I was finished rewiring it, you admitted the electric backup heat was never as warm as it was when I was finished. Yes there was a polarity issue, that was taken care of. You were not overcharged for anything, this was industry standard billing. Yes you did dispute the credit card charge, and it was awarded in my favor. You disputed the charge even after I issued a partial refund, and let's not forget that your son took the check that was mailed to you.

Project: Repair or Service a Central Air Cleaner
I spoke with Adrian when I called and she set it up for Lou to come the next morning. I had expected to have a wait time but was pleasantly surprised at how quickly they made time for me. His work is exemplary and I would definitely use his services again and will recommend him to all my friends and family. Thank you Lou.
Response by Garbo's Heating & Cooling, LLC: Thank you, it was my pleasure to help. Your review is greatly appreciated!

Lou was on time, had the problem determined quickly & fixed just as fast. On the spur of the moment we asked him about a digital thermostat, having one on the truck he hooked us up on the spot. I also showed him some work we were thinking of for the future. He spotted some other issues, told me what it would need, took my info to send me a full estimate. Friendly & thorough - his card is on the cupboard door, we have what we need in one guy, why go elsewhere?

Mr. Garbo was business-like yet personable. We were so satisfied that we asked him to get back to us with an estimate for an additional plumbing project.

Review by in Lake Winola, PA
Project: Install, Repair or Replace Plumbing or Fixtures
I found a broken sewer pipe in my basement at 7:30 pm and called him for help. He was at my home in one hour with everything he needed to make a very difficult repair. I would recommend him to anyone who needs fast reliable and professional service at a fair price. I will definitely use his services in the future and recommend him to anyone in need of a true professional.
Response by Garbo's Heating & Cooling, LLC: Thank you very much!

In a time when customer service seems to have gone by the wayside, Lou Garbo reminded me of what a pleasure it is to deal with someone who values their customers. My daughter moved and had to replace the furnace for the new buyers. She had a quote from Garbo's and wanted to get others. After talking to Lou and having all my questions completely answered, I felt comfortable enough to tell her to go with him. Lou answered all questions, kept us updated with texts on the progress, and sent a picture of the final installation. Since we are in Alabama, we will not be able to inspect the final work, but from the picture, it is perfect. A high quality furnace with great customer service....priceless. Highly recommend!
Response by Garbo's Heating & Cooling, LLC: Thank you very much, it was a pleasure dealing with you and your daughter. I wish her good luck.

Called Lou on Sunday (Mother's Day) and explained my situation and he said he was booked up for Monday but would try to help me and showed up at 7 am and had the system up and running by 7:45. I can't thank him enough for being so thoughtful and kind. I would recommend him to family and friends.
Response by Garbo's Heating & Cooling, LLC: Glad I was able to help, see you Friday for the tuneup!

  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
