Customer Review

They definitely care about their customers...

Golden Rule was amazing!! Denny our technician informed us what the problem was, fixed it, and gave us information on how to prevent the problem from happening again. He responded the same day that I called and was very personable to deal with. I highly recommend this company for anyone needing heating, cooling or plumbing work done. They definitely care about their customers.
