I've never had a problem with Michael & Sons, but they are more expensive than anyone else I've ever dealt with. However, they will come out when you need them.

They aren't more expensive than Magnolia, but, Magnolia, like Michael & Son will come when they say they will. Magnolia does pretty good work, too.

About 6 years ago we had Airplus install a Train system in our house to replace the original Singer system that was 40 years old. They also installed a new and larger water heater. Their work and service has been excellent. We had a failure of the controller system from a black out and a water tank failure. Both repairs were immediately fixed under warranty and they even came out immediately during after hours to take care of us. I definitely recommend the company.

I know Joseph Magnolia. I have told him to his face that I do not like his prices. Despite that, like this guy says, they do show up when they say they will and they stand behind their work. Half of these places don't show up and out of the half that do, they try to upsell you to work you don't need. Half of those do shoddy work on the original prob. and the upsell. The half that don't try to upsell you just plain do crappy work or leave it half done and don't come back to finish it.

At least Magnolia shows up, looks at it, tells you what it's going to cost and when the guy presents the bill, it's either exactly what he said it would be or only a couple of dollars more. The most I've had a bill exceed an estimate was fro $25. On a $500 bill, I can live with that. We usually get the same guy from them, he's pretty good, so there's no problem with the work.

One time, they did do shoddy work. It wasn't the guy we usually get. I called them, they offered to have a different guy first thing in the morning, I asked for a guy at 10 AM, they said OK, at 1015 or so, the guy we usually get was knocking on the door. He went and looked at it, told us what the guy did wrong and what he should have done. It was something that should have cost ore, but he was going to do it right but had to have them send another guy to help him. He called them, then told us he'd be back in 3 hours to do the job right. He came back with another guy in about 2 1/2 hours. It took them about 3 hours, but, they did the job right and didn't charge us another dime.

I don't like Magnolia's prices, but, I guess you get what you pay for. They come when they say they will, they tell you the price up front and that's what you pay in the end (or close enough to it) and they stand behind their work. The last thing, especially, is why I keep using them.

Whatever you do, dont give Cropp Metcalf your hard earned money! His leech ass ex-wife will soon be married and no longer bleed Mr. Cropp dry! She is a gross, plastic fake ass c-word that thinks she is all that. That lil insecure, bony bitch will be insignificant after the money well dries up.

Installed my HVAC unit incorrectly, ignored requests for repair, didn’t know what they were talking about. Cross-threaded the vale when checking refrigerant, resulting in loss of refrigerant and a service call to another company.

Avoid, avoid, avoid!

They installed a unit at my place a few years ago, and within a day the system lost its ability to blow out cool air. Had them back out to fix it and again it worked for a few days until it would stop blowing out cool air. Finally, I called another company and was told that Snell had melted all the king valves due to poor installation and that the reason the air wasn't cool was because of multiple leaks in the line from said poor installation.

Buying a name brand A/C means nothing if you had a Democrat owned company installed it (uses illegal laborers, untrained laborers).

Even a "bad brand" A/C is better if it is installed correctly - which is more and more rare.

The WORST company I ever hired to repair an air conditioner was Planned Parenthood. What was I thinking? They just shoved a coat hanger into the system and rattled it around a bit. But it was cheap, and taxpayer funded.

Never use F.H. Furr, they tried to rip me off twice. One time they said I needed a new hot water heater and another time said I needed a new garbage disposal, I got second opinions from other companies and they just needed minor repairs.

My brother is engineer and he is great in fixing and repairing different things like conditioners. One day he said me to choose ventless portable air conditioner from all those options, because of thier easily undrestanding instruction, their ability of cooling the room best of all, and of AC is easy to repair, and people practically have no allergy from their use. And of course, after the purchase, different stores give up to 3-5 years warranty.

FFXU is littered with poor white trash who fix HVAC units. Most don’t live within a 50 mile radius of Fairfax County and think Winchester is a nice place to live. Hence all the detailed, mostly literate responses.

Sad but true.

Virginia is over-run by democrats.

politicians own "businesses" (they do so secretly as they can)

politicians use ILLEGAL UNTRAINED LABOR, not certified workers

you can't get any work done in Virginia that doesn't leave significant problems that are harder to fix than was the job they were hired to install

YOU CANNOT BUY WORK IN VA - MY ADVICE IS DO IT YOURSELF

my neighbor had a washing machine installed recently by "service pro"

FLOODED HIS BASEMENT

the illegal alien idiots faked the water connections and left

when he did his first load of laundry - bam

HE THEN GOT THE COMPANY TO CLEAN UP THE DAMAGE - but they are trying to bill him for the clean up

he has to sue them to recovery while they are reporting him to the credit card companies (he'll be forced to pay for the cleanup - and fairfax courts will likely rule in favor of the politician owned business)
