Call Chuck at Artisan Plumbing. His cell is usually the best way to reach him: 215-400-1842. He does a lot of work with old houses and works in Philly all the time, so he’ll know what can be done. I have always found him to be honest as well as good at what he does.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We use Mike DiPrinzio for all of our plumbing and he is very good, very reasonable in his prices, responsible and responsive, and extremely easy to get along with.

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 🙂

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.

I have just had one of our cast iron stacks replaced by Neil McNulty (who never says no – he has an endless supply of plumbers etc, for every need!) 610-609-6254. And note: Your Homeowner’s Insurance should cover any damage caused by the leak and by creating access to the pipe and repairing the carpentry, painting, and such. It’s good to file a claim before you start repairs.

For high-velocity central air we used Michael Warner (MJW Plumbing, Heating and A/C). He did an excellent job, is a great guy and his quote was almost half of what others wanted to charge. He can be reached at 215-368-9515 and 215-739-8990. Best of luck with your projects.
