They bailed me out of an issue with my heating and air unit last year. Their service was great for me....Now, that Burger King ad years ago with the creepy "Burger King" that kept stalking people, THAT was creepy. But you know what it couldn't keep me away from flame broiled goodness

Cool Are you next?

It's after 10 PM. A street light struggles to pierce the darkness with its wan rays. In the blackest shadows cast by gnarled tree limbs and dormant houses, the white van sits silently. Bobby is waiting. He knows it is only a matter of time. Waiting . . .

There are some very funny 'spoofs' and 'mean tweets' of Morris-Jenkins and Bobby on YouTube!!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mN3q6mluJ7s

Not as creepy as what they charge for fixing your system. How many service repair companies can afford TV, Billboard and Radio advertising? Giving away free iPads....come on. Tells me all I need to know.

As a HR Manager I would have to advise Mr JANEkins that his relationship with Bobby borders on inappropriate and showing overt favoritism.

But we're all talking about them. Seems effective to me.

Oh they are totally a rip off. For anyone that doesn't know, a 2 ton a/c unit (the size you'd use for a 1200 sq ft house) costs about $800 from the supplier. (maybe $900 if its an a/c heat pump unit). A gas furnace for the same sized home... $375, seriously... $375.. I've bought tons of them. An outdoor package unit, either a gas pack with a/c, or an all electric unit, is about $1800. Those are brand new prices, granted they aren't super high efficiency, but still pretty efficient compared to anything old. HVAC installers love that you don't actually know what the equipment costs!
