I hired Wighton's for repair on a ductless a/c system. The technician they sent proceeded methodically and concluded that there was a leak in my condenser unit. He said that it would be costly for him to search for the leak and recommended that we inject a sealant, which he said he had had a successful history with. We went that route, and I paid a Wighton's bill for $1,390.25. But several weeks later the leak was back. Wighton's then told me to buy a new condenser to avoid the expense of having them do a leak search. I contacted the manufacturer. He could have sold me the new condenser without questions, but was worried that a new condenser would not correct my problem, because most leaks are in the lines and condenser leaks are extremely rare. Also, if the leak were in the condenser, he said, it would be relatively easy to find for a competent technician. Giving both sides the benefit of the doubt, I suggested that they talk with each other. Ric of Wighton's agreed reluctantly to talk with the manufacturer, but delayed for weeks in scheduling a conference call until his technician would be available. Anyway, a conference call was finally held, though Wighton's technician still did not participate. Immediately after the call, Ric wrote me an e-mail saying that the manufacturer will send me a new condenser coil but that Wighton's will not accept the job of installing it (even though they would have been paid to do so). Evidently, Wighton's was satisfied that it got $1,390.25 from me, and did not care whether or not they got my system to work right. I will find a more reliable, professional company to work with and, now that I know how Ric operates and how irresponsible Wighton's is, I feel relieved to be done with them, in spite of the burdensome cost associated with this experience.
Response by Wighton's, Inc.: Len, I sincerely apologize for not meeting your expectations in resolving your refrigerant leak that your original installing contractor could not resolve with your equipment manufacturer. Isolating a refrigerant leak in a HVAC system (in your case 4 indoor units and one outdoor unit) can be very time consuming. I hope your system is now functioning properly, keeping you warm and comfortable this winter.

The technicians were excellent. Wok completed on time and they also cleaned up the job sites when they had finished. Jennifer (office staff) was a great help.

Wighton's had excellent and responsive customer service. They came out the next day, found a wiring issue for my AC control, and got my AC back up and running in an hour. The technician was very qualified, and knew the issue right away. I will use Wighton's for all my home repair needs in the future.

Project: Install Natural Gas or Propane Furnace / Forced Air Heating System
Everyone was very professional, courteous, friendly and got things done. We had a slight problem with wall heater installation but they quickly took care of it. Our water heater went out the next day and within a day had a new tankless heater installed . If anyone ever needs anything they do done I would highly recommend them
Response by Wighton's, Inc.: Thanks for the recommendation, Donna! Thank you for contacting us to help with your wall heater and for the installation of your new tankless water heater. We are here to provide comfort you can trust, so if you have any further issues please call us! We truly appreciate you taking the time to review us.

  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.

    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)
