...Grateful is too small for a word to use but describes best how I feel about Dowd Heat and Air.

“I’ve never experienced such honesty in a field where they could have not been. My a/c quit working, so they came out to look at it. I know nothing about a/c units whatsoever and I thought I was going to have to purchase a new unit. I was so surprised when the nice gentleman told me it just needed to be cleaned out. He was there 10 minutes and left. Grateful is too small for a word to use but describes best how I feel about Dowd Heat and Air.”
