Plumbing/HVAC

we've been told our sys was put in compliments Augustafer's (sp.?),   who were apparently in the HVAC biz. we have been well served by Ben Block, a terrific man and entirely reputable/personable. We rec'd a   card offering a pre-season (ha!) checkup for $85 instead of $125 if b4   11/26. that said, we have gas hot water heat and he is familiar and   competent. this is our second (oh yeah, carpetbaggers!) year w/Ben and   we can say nothing but the best -- he answers Qs if you have 'em,   makes suggestions if you take 'em, and all those good qualities.

The Bells enthusiastically co-sign any recommendation of Block Heating and Air Conditioning.  I cannot find my pre-season check up card anywhere but you can Google them. Ben was here just yesterday installing a new furnace.  Our furnace and cooling units are ancient -- had to be the first off the assembly line.  They have been dying since we bought the house 5 years ago and Ben has performed incredible feats of CPR on them both -- including risking life and limb last week to shut down a furnace that was apparently shooting out fire every time it fired up (hubby and I were in complete denial about the house-shaking rumbling every time the heat stoked up and refused to go look).  He burned all the hair off his arm decommissioning it and didn't mention it, but the smoky aroma gave it away.  They're honest, straightforward, and don't waste time. He's also very busy, so you occasionally have to call a few times to get hold of him.

Campano
We had our boiler replaced with central heating and A/C last year by Campano. I have nothing but the highest praise for their work, their ethics, and the job they did!  We had orginally contracted with someone who started the job, got half the money and never came back to finish!  Fortunately that guy had a conscience and subcontracted the rest of the job to Campano, so ours was a story with a happy ending.  Campano did not try to rake us over the coals, they did more than what their contract called for and they completed the job on time.

I use Campano Heating and Air, (215) 238-0570, and have been happy with them.  They have also serviced my parents' steam system for years and did a great job switching my house over to an HVAC system.

For several years our plumber has been Mike DiPrinzio. His number is 610-355-7589.  We've always been satisfied with his work -- he also does all the plumbing at the Overbrook Presbyterian Church, as well as several other neighbors. AND he returns phone calls and comes when he says is coming. His prices have always seemed reasonable to me.

Mike DiPrinzio- 215-205-1186.  He services ours every year and has also done some repairs on it.  Ours has been in this house since about 1972, and understand it's one of the last of the originals in the neighborhood, shhhhhh, it's still working 🙂

J. Conley and Sons
The heating and furnace people that put in a new furnace for us is J. Conley and Sons in Upper Darby . I believe that they have been reasonable in terms of cost and they are trustworthy. I hope this helps.

JR Crass Heating
I used Bob Crass for a repair to my steam heater. There are not a lot of ppl who know their way around steam heat. Bob was able to fix a problem from when the heater was installed and gave me some good resources to learn more about steam heat. He also refinished bathrooms & kitchens, next he'll be working on my basement powder room.
