  Testimonial by Barbara Phillips
Jesse M came for the annual plumbing check and was punctual, very professional, and knowledgeable about everything. He was able to replace some rusting wash machine hoses and replaced a drain cover in the basement. He suggested some upgrades, but not pushy. He was a pleasure to deal with as have all the men who have been at our home over the past many years.
  Testimonial by Lori Heffelfinger
I've been a customer of Essig's for many years.In fact, my parents used Essig for their entire married lives. Never disappointed. I've had the plaeasure of meeting several of the service techs. Always willing to take time to explain the issue and most often indicate options where appropriate. Yesterday Aaron M came out to fix several issues with kitchen and bathroom faucets and drains. He was professional, but friendly, and explained everything so that I could understand what would be involved in fixing the issues. Participating in Essig's service partner plan gives me a sense of security where my heating and plumbing are's nice to know they'll be there ASAP whenever needed, and will make me aware of potential problems and ways to avoid them.Thank you Aaron for being prompt, courteous, professional,and thorough.

I have been using Essig for approximately 25 years and have received exceptional service from day one. They are responsive, professional and stand by their work. Today my service provider was Mike W. He arrived on time and was both professional and personable. He serviced the heating and air conditioning systems. His work was thorough and through this, saved me $ in potential future repairs. Thank you Mike! I will continue to contract with this company because of the exceptional service I receive. BTW, the office staff is great to deal with too.

Alfie L. arrived at our home on time. Since our water leak repair last week, the water pressure in our home had been way too high at 120psi. He replaced our old pressure regulator with a new one and also replaced the old aerator on our kitchen faucet. he was very pleasant, courteous, and helpful. Thank you very much; we really appreciate it!
  Testimonial by Mary Lou Kodz
Jesse Mowrey corrected a plumbing problem that I was experiencing with knowledge for the service, courtesy, exceptional customer service skills, and the most pleasant personality that I have encountered in a long time. He clearly explained to me how I can avoid this problem in the future. I would be happy to have Jesse service any future plumbing issues that I may experience,
  Testimonial by Judy Baer
Alfie is very professional and considerate of my time. He is excellent with my 2 dogs. Alfie is always on time and completes the work in the time frame stated. We always request Alfie and trust his judgement about what we need done completely. He has never tried to sell me something I don't need or tell me something needs to be done when it is not required. I trust Alfie completely.
I needed the experience of a plumber once again. Alfie was requested and arrived the next day the office was open. He was able to identify the problem with the toilet and is now preparing a proposal to replace the floor board that is rotting away. He corrected the problem for now. As always Alfie was prompt and let me know right away what needed to be done. I would never request any other service technician. Alfie is very professional and considerate.

I think it must be said, without reserve. Justin Heist is a gentleman in the finest sense of the word. Always representing Essig with the highest regard of honesty and integrity. As a 30 year retired teacher, I recognize immediately people with special talent: How to explain the problem - make sense out of the terminology - demonstrate with hands on applications and then, present to the customer. He does this with ease. He works efficiently and always with the polite knowledge that he is in someone's home. As a senior citizen especially, I highly recommend Essig and Justin Heist.
  Testimonial by Jennifer Lust
They were able to confirm an appointment for the next day at 11pm at night after our boiler died. Even though it's taking a few days to actually get our heat back on (it needs to be replaced), they worked very hard to get us options on repair/replacement and eventually get us a new one as quickly as possible. Both techs we worked with were very knowledgable and helpful.
  Testimonial by Stella Brunner
We are very happy with the job that was done! Brad arrived not only on time, but a few minutes early! He quickly discovered the problem and fixed it. He gave several options and gave us price estimates for each. He was respectful and took good care to keep the surroundings clean and neat. We would definitely call this company if we have a need in the future!
  Testimonial by Gregory Maynard
Fantastic team and fantastic experience. Had a new furnace, AC, and hot water tank installed. Brain Y led the team in very cold and trying outdoor conditions. He explained the process and executed on it flawlessly. Job was done as expected and completed well within the 2 day timeframe that was estimated. Team was curteous and professional and involved us in key components aong the way as needed. Explained all the important components of the equipment at the end. Great job! Would recommended Essig to my friends and family.
  Testimonial by Roger Burnish
The work has been completed successfully by a very professional and overall a nice guy whose name was Alfie! I have always been satisfied with the work performed by Paul W. Essig Inc.and will continue to use them, especially because of Alfie!! I just wish that there was some kind of discount for seniors living on a fixed income! However that will not deter me from using Essig again! Thank you very much for your service and again the great work and professionalism shown by Alfie!
  Testimonial by Margaret S.
Both Weston K and Joe W came to our home today to improve air flow on our system to better balance temperatures between floors in our home. They were knowledgeable, courteous, worked efficiently and had pleasant personalities that you could communicate well with. Although it has been only one day and it is quite room outside, the temperatures between the floors appears to be pretty consistent. Hopefully, it will continue through summer and balance heat also in the winter. These gentlemen were terrific!
  Testimonial by Christa Yergey
I had both a plumbing and HVAC issue at the same time. Making an appointment was a super pleasant experience. The representative on the phone was so friendly and helpful - she really put my mind at ease as this is the first time in our home that I've had issues like this. Both technicians that came out to my home were super friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to listen and answer all of my questions. Mike and Jesse are both awesome! I highly recommend Essig for both plumbing and HVAC maintenance!
  Testimonial by Nancy Weidner
I would highly recommend Essig they were fast giving me a date to do the work, they kept me informed by email when he would be here. They also called and sent me a picture of the person coming to do the work! That was fantastic no one else does that made me feel safe about who was coming! Work is excellent! Thank you!

They did a good job on my heating system but one of the trucks backed into my truck parked in my driveway...I contacted them and I am not getting any satisfaction. They came and looked at damage and said they would get back to me...its 2weeks and can't get anyone to answer my call...NOT GOOD BUSINESS!!!
