    5.0 Roger Z. Hobart, IN

    The service representative was on time and had my unit repaired and running in 2 hours. Very satisfied. I will Definitely use them again.

    5.0 Jim C. Munster, IN

    Very responsive, on time, professional and knowledgeable, all with competitive rates

    5.0 Johnathon F. Highland, IN

    They did a great and very thorough job and didn't nickel-and-dimed. They did everything from checking the vents topping up the Freon, and even washing the cotton weed out of the unit and the price was a lot lest costly than the people I had hired a couple years before who didn't do anywhere near as thorough a job

    5.0 Nikki W. Michigan City, IN

    The worker was very kind and explained everything to me.

    5.0 Brad R. Saint John, IN

    Called Lake Effect and they came out the same day. Excellent service, didn't try to sell anything not needed. James explained issue and was very thorough testing and fixing. Furnace and is working great now.

    5.0 Willy P. Gary, IN

    They were reliable , price great and their timing is awesome did a spectacular job .

    5.0 Floyd M. Crown Point, IN

    The technician took the time to explain, in terms I could understand, what he was doing and why. He also explained the in and out and care and feeding of a boiler and hot water system so I would not unintentionally screw it up in my ignorance.

    4.5 Kenneth K. Dyer, IN

    Other contractors (not from Home Advisor) wanted double the price for service call. Lake Effect Heating and Air arrived on schedule and stayed until the job was done. I am very satisfied with the work they did (my heating boiler wouldn't stay lit, it required new valve and cleaning of the pilot assembly)

    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.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
