Review by in Lakeville, MA
Quick response, representative spent time outlining the reputation of the company and then all details regarding the Installation. Because of the details of the house the intallation was complicated but it was performed expertly by two men in one day. I could not be happier.

Review by in Canton, MA
Project: Install Oil Furnace / Forced Air Heating System
Both salesman and technician showed up on time always. Office staffs are always polite and efficient in terms of scheduling and reminders. Promptly responds to emails. The project was done greatly and professionally in general, although projected time was one day and turned out they finished in two days. There is an emergency burner switch that the technician failed to reconnect and made it work, which they claimed that it is not the electrical written on the contract, so not responsible!! Very disappointed! It's an emergency switch that connects to the furnace.

I'm not one to spend time writing product or service reviews, much as I appreciate the output of those who do, but I feel compelled to write this one in the spirit of offering some guidance. Let me state unequivocally, at the outset, that ARS was competent when both installing my Lennox gas-fired water boiler over seven years ago, and when replacing a part for it this past month. It is the latter job which is the basis for this review, although I now realize their pricing culture probably accounted, at least in part, for the very high cost of initial installation ($8,600). Despite my Lennox boiler having a 10-year warranty on parts and being only 7.5 years old, ARS told me the part needing replacement was no longer under warranty. As this part was highly integral to the boiler's operation, I was skeptical, but they were adamant. So, I called Lennox Customer Service and was told ARS should file a warranty claim, so that the warranty question could be evaluated by Lennox. This sounded reasonable, so I asked ARS to do this (a simple and quick online procedure for them, as a licensed Lennox dealer). ARS refused to do so, saying "they never file warranty claims," and tried to make excuses about it being futile because I had not done an annual maintenance tune-up on my boiler. Nothing about such maintenance was even mentioned to me by Lennox Customer Service. Again, I called Lennox Customer Service, and they told me they always expected any of their licensed dealers at least to file a claim with them in such a case as this. Lennox Customer Service then transferred me to the Lennox Consumer Affairs Department, whereupon I spent over an hour and a half on the phone waiting to talk with that department's representative. When finally reached, he immediately insisted that ARS should be filing a claim on my behalf, and he proactively called ARS to instruct them to do so. Moreover, he made no mention of any need for "annual maintenance" with respect to maintaining a valid warranty, and told me -- on the spot -- that the part was still under warranty coverage. ARS called me the next day, leaving a terse voicemail to the effect that the part was under warranty, after all. It is obvious ARS wishes to avoid filing warranty claims whenever they can; they even said so explicitly to me, as already referenced. My guess is that they much prefer to "milk" their customer for a new part. I use the pejorative term of "milk" because ARS was going to charge me $690 for this new part even though Lennox Consumer Affairs told me (and I later confirmed by checking online with an HVAC parts supplier) that the part in question was available for $195. And that still would include the manufacturer's warranty (in this case, from Honeywell, a subcontractor to Lennox), provided it is installed by a licensed technician. (Finally, I will also mention, as almost an afterthought, that ARS charged $270 for a mere 30 minutes of labor to replace the part. When I protested t

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  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.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
