Employees

We here at Friendly Heating and Cooling Inc. are more like family and friends, rather than just co workers. All of our employees care about their jobs and the quality of the work they perform. I think you will find that our employees are kind courteous and professional. We value each and every customer and try to go the extra mile on everything that we do. Friendly is not just the name of our company, it is our company. Each one of our employees have passed a background check and a drug test. We also perform random drug tests to make sure our company is drug free at all times. All of our employees are very honest and trustworthy people. I wouldn't allow anyone in your home that I wouldn't want in my own home. We have a great group of employees and though I know it sounds arrogant, I don't have any trouble saying what I feel to be the truth.
