Not only that, they call relentlessly if you've ever had anything done by them. Unless you need immediate service, I would always choose someone else.

There was a Morris Jenkins van working at a house down the street. The two guys that got out of that van certainly didn't resemble the clean cut young good looking actor they use for bobby. Got watch Trailer Park Boys on Netflix which is much closer to the mark.


My advice, avoid any HVAC company that does heavy advertising on TV.

All HVAC companies are creepy but thank you for bring Morris Jenkins commercials to light -- yes indeed I also always thought their commercials were a bit creepy - especially the owner. He has those weird looking eyes..............

Trivia dot: The Morris-Jenkins jingle is a rework of the old jazz tune "It'll be a hot time in the old town tonight"

It's always cheaper to use songs from the public domain!

I don't really understand why people are correlating their heavy advertising with their high prices. Yes, in my experience I do agree that their prices are ridiculous, but there are plenty of competitively priced companies in other industries that do heavy advertising.

I would like to see them go back to that old jingle. It was more upbeat and entertaining, and the ads with Bobby have gotten old and boring. And obviously a bit creepy to some.
