DJ was super helpful and courteous. He arrived at my condo on time and walked me through his evaluation of the issue. He provided me with all of my options and allowed me to decide how to proceed. Would definitely recommend Turner’s Service!
I am very pleased with their customer service and technical proficiency. These technicians are honest and explain things well. I plan to continue to use Turner’s for HVAC servicing and would give them a strong recommendation.
Very thorough, very friendly, was detailed about the use and operating instructions. Turner’s is a company that you can trust. They are not trying to up-sell you, but keep you as a loyal customer. I have used them for years for my HVAC maintenance and repair needs.
