"The technician who serviced our furnace was very friendly and professional. He made a point of showing me before and after cleaning our furnace and gave specific test results when recommending that our capacitor be replaced. I highly recommend this company!"

– David B.

"Service tech arrived on time, explained the process thoroughly, and answered all questions respectfully. Highly rate the experience."

– Mark G.

"My husband, Terry, and I would like to personally thank you for the excellent service we received from our first phone call to Black Hills, reminder calls, services, and follow-up! Your staff was very professional and informative. Following with a hand-written thank you for joining the Black Hills family was brilliant and so appreciated. Sadly, so many companies have lost this personal touch. From a marketing background, treating customers as if they are your first customers is time consuming, and often tiring, but it is what develops loyalty. Thank you and your team"

– Trish and Terry Lavery

"Excellent service provided. Staff is verry professional and friendly."

– Afzal S.

"My wife and I can't overstate how good it feels to have a contractor guarantee and deliver above and beyond what they guarantee! The folks are the most professional and caring contractors I've ever worked with! from the apprentice to the Master electricians, plumbers, and HVAC personnel! Thank you and yes I would do it all over again. Thanks Again!!!!"

– Russell C.
