Well, in this economy the last thing I wanted to do was spend money on my ac, and when I saw the "no cost for freon" Casteel had in their commercial, I assumed (as a person of reasonable intelligence, right?) that there had to be some sort of catch.
Well I am here to tell you that is not the case. While their diagnostic charge was about 5$ more than a larger company I won’t name, I found their prices to be more than fair, and the free freon to more than pay for that 5$.
Additionally, everyone I spoke to at Casteel was a complete delight! From the customer service reps who apparently were actually educated in customer service, to the technician that came out-everyone really cared and gave that "family company" service, which I just feel like some companies have lost that in a misguided effort to be the cheapest. They have a new customer for life!
