Review by in Atascadero, CA
I was called within an hour of posting on HomeAdvisor! They called again near noon and were at my home within 10 minutes. Excellent customer service! Their Technician Ruben analyzed my problem and his supervisor also showed up and verified the diagnosis. Parts were immediately purchased and the job was concluded within 2 hours. If you need professional service, call Wightons! After two years I am confident my problem is solved!

Wighton did a full analyzes of my heating system I knew nothing about and after they were done I felt with confidince I know my furnace now. Great price and the adjustments they made to my furnace made it safer and more efficient. I can definitely tell the difference.

Review by in Nipomo, CA
Project: Repair Natural Gas or Propane Furnace / Forced Air Heating System
The serviceman was very thorough with his inspection; he checked everything and went over all of his findings prior to leaving. He spent a good amount of time cleaning and inspecting. The last time I serviced the furnace they did not spend much time on the inspection and did not go over everything like Wighton's did. I would highly recommend them.
Response by Wighton's, Inc.: Thank you Rose for the kind review. We are so happy to have met your expectations, we are all about educating our customers as well as fixing your problem in a professional manner. We appreciate your business!

Review by in Solvang, CA
Project: Repair Natural Gas or Propane Furnace / Forced Air Heating System
The furnace issue was resolved on site. They were prepared to make board level repairs without coming back for a 2nd visit. Seemed expensive but it's fixed and working again.

After extensive research about the HVAC products and the descriptions about the complexity of installation for our home, we selected Wighton's. The bid was lower than the competition. They started the day after we agreed to the bid and completed the project in 5 consecutive days. We realized very quickly that professional installation was as important as the 2 complete HVAC systems. Everything went very well and we felt we received the best in every way.
Response by Wighton's, Inc.: Thank you for the 5-Star review, Rich! We are happy to have the privilege to help with your HVAC needs and appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback on our services! Please let us know if we can be of help in the future!

Review by in Arroyo Grande, CA
Project: Repair Natural Gas or Propane Furnace / Forced Air Heating System
The service technician was friendly and explained the process and results as he was working. He arrived on time and spent an appropriate amount of time doing his work. The concerns that I have are specific to one aspect of the inspection/ check up. I have lived in my home for a few months and had not used the furnace. I was aware that the system lacked an air filter. In our system, a filter is supposed to be installed behind a return grille which is about 12 feet above the floor in the family room, so it is a bit difficult to access. The technician told me that a filter could not be installed safely behind the grille because the grille did not have a slot to hold the filter. I was advised that a custom grille would need to be fabricated. I thought that was odd, since the house is 35 years old, the furnace itself was installed in 2011, and it obviously had been used previously. The next day, I received an invoice/ estimate from Wighton's for $632 for this work (including 1.5 hours of labor). I measured the grille, the space for the filter, and the duct diameter and verified that an 18 X 24 X 1 inch grille should fit snugly behind the grille. The home inspector whom I hired to inspect the home prior to our purchase, Martin Hewitt of Camelot Home Inspections, offered to take a look at the grille and filter requirements and confirmed, as I had suspected, that a custom grille was not needed, and that an 18" x 24" x 1" filter would fit and work fine. Martin even assisted by cutting and installing a new filter (a 20" x 30" filter designed to be trimmed to the correct size that I had just purchased) while he was up there inspecting the grille and ducting. Martin is terrific! Wighton's, on the other hand, I now view with suspicion and skepticism.
Response by Wighton's, Inc.: Hello Pete, We are glad our service technician was friendly and did his job in a complete and professional manner and educated you on your system. We are glad the home inspector was able to provide you with a solution that suited your needs. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Team Wighton's .

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.
  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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
