Danny was so professional and honest. He was able to fix the error that was made and cleaned everything up for us. We only want Danny servicing our equipment going forward!
Fantastic, friendly service
Nicole - Holmes, NY
I called (a little out of contract) and got an appointment in 2 days, Danny was punctual, very friendly, and did a great job. He answered all my questions, and pointed out 2 things we needed to remediate (1 of them being we were nearly out of oil, which I missed because our service is automatic). Thrilled, as always, with Folkes professional service. Love the new system where they send a pic and name for who’s coming out, was pleased to see Danny again.
Reliable. Very happy they called to remind me that we needed the service

Tarra - Holmes, NY
Our old A/C unit was not working. Folkes sent out a technician the next day. He was professional and explained everything. Unfortunately it was not able to be fixed and they sent someone to give us an estimate. He was wonderful at explaining the process, what we needed and what our options were. We ended up replacing our system and the technicians at Folkes were courteous and professional. They put in long hours to get the job done and made sure they kept the the areas they had to walk through and work clean. I would definitely recommend them!
Help - Holmes, NY
After some debate about an anode today that did not exist in our indirect water heater, we used bleach to hopefully kill the bacteria that is causing the sulfur odor in the hot water. Wishing it will be gone with the wind.

Kurt & Chris are the BEST ! Kurt explained everything to me and worked with Chris to fix my furnace. When you call for service ask for them !
Great, fast service, reasonable price
Nicole - Holmes, NY
After calling our usual company about a loud rumbling from our furnace, and being put off until Tuesday, I decided to take advice and give Folkes a try - I’m so glad I did, and so grateful for the fast, efficient service. We signed up for the service plan, a part will be ordered and replaced next week, and the furnace seems to be running much better in the meantime with no noise and no more smell (our furnace is old and Italian - a great furnace but uncommon and nobody keeps parts on hand). I was so grateful for the rapid response, they were here ahead of the promised time, and they couldn’t have been nicer or more professional. It was a great experience, the price was reasonable, and I really couldn’t be happier. Thank you Folkes!

Checked over operation of central air system. Customer stated kitchen area not cooling. Found one 6â€ supply duct in kitchen for cooling. High ceilings and skylights.

Performed annual AC tuneup on 2 systems. Recommend replacing outdoor capacitor and contactor on First floor condenser. Capacitor was weak. Contactor was chard and pitted, both will fail eventually. Tested Units. Systems operational. Recommend replacing 16 x 25 x 4â€œ air filters as soon as possible. Drew arrow directions on your handlers. When Replacing, point filter arrow to direction of arrow I drew on air handler.
Customers first floor thermostat had no power, pulled face off thermostat and noticed C wire wasnâ€™t connected at thermostat which customer has a nest thermostat which need constant power, went to air handler and c wire not connected, connected C wire to common wires shared with Condenser, thermostat completely dead had right light blinking on top of thermostat indicating it was charging, could take up to a hour to charge.
