Why Use James A. Wheat & Sons?

Our company is family-owned and -operated. This statement can mean several things to different people. Let us tell you what that statement means to us. Not only are we family-owned and -operated, but the company name is also our name. When we provide services for you, we are attaching our personal name to that service. Therefore, we put special attention to each job because our own name is on it.

When we say family, we mean family. Our employees are part of that family. We have the best mechanics available. Honest, hardworking, always striving to give you the plumbing, heating or cooling service you deserve. Each technician is either in training to reach his or her certification or is already licensed and continuing his education. You can never have over-trained mechanics.

Our company is ”just the right size.” We are small enough to know your name but large enough to handle any problem you have. Whether you are in Montgomery County, Maryland, or Washington, DC, our plumbing and HVAC technicians are always nearby. Our company is growing, but at our own pace; keeping track of who and where we came from to make sure you get your plumbing, heating, and cooling services whenever you need us rather than having to wait for weeks just to schedule an appointment.

What are the Benefits of Working with James A. Wheat & Sons?

Licensed and insured

This should be a given. However, check with other plumbing and HVAC contractors and you will be surprised to see how many are not certified. With our plumbing, heating, and air conditioning experts, you will always receive professional service.

By the book

James A. Wheat & Sons, Inc. installs all plumbing, heating, and air conditioning systems, materials, and equipment to manufacturers´ specifications and has its work inspected when code requires.

Drug-free

Our technicians and office staff are drug-free. We perform random and pre-employment testing to ensure our staff is drug-free, allowing you to feel comfortable with them in your home and with your family.

Factory authorized dealer

Approved by Carrier as being the “best of the best,” James A. Wheat & Sons has received better training and support from Carrier and has proven to provide better customer service than the average HVAC dealer. Whether you need help with duct cleaning, bathroom remodeling, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, gas fireplace, or an energy audit, we always offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee to ensure you are always happy with our services.

NATE-certified

North American Technician Excellence (NATE) is a certification that HVAC technicians can acquire once they achieve proper training, testing, and knowledge of their trade. Very similar to ASSE-certified auto mechanics, NATE certification gives you added comfort and peace of mind that the technician is performing the heating and air conditioning installations, inspections, and repairs properly and to your standards.

Beyond code

Many heating and air conditioning companies state that they perform their jobs to local code. The definition of code is the minimum requirements to allow a job to pass inspection. At James A. Wheat & Sons, we believe that code is a starting point. We perform all of our work to local and national codes, but offer and suggest options and an installation process that goes well beyond code.

Beyond your expectations!

We understand the image our industry portrays. At James A. Wheat & Sons, we are trying to change that image one job at a time. Our technicians arrive at your home in a clean, pressed uniform, always wear protective shoe covers, and use drop cloths to protect your home while they install, inspect or repair your plumbing, heating, and air conditioning systems.

Customer satisfaction

Since we are a family-owned operation, we are a mall enough company to care about each customer but are a large enough company to take care of any problem and stand behind our word and work. Whether you need to remodel your bathroom, clean your air ducts, install a gas fireplace, receive air conditioning or heating services, or be given an energy audit, James A. Wheat & Sons offers 100% satisfaction guaranteed on all our services! Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
