Not much help but... Many plumbers handle gas appliances also. My plumber is almost a neighbor, or I'd give you his number.

Good luck!

Steve Buy heating and cooling in Moultonborough. I pass his building all the time. Just spoke to him this week to service my propane system. I haven't used him but he sounded like a good guy.

Default Central NH H&C

Call Noel Gagnon at Central NH Heating and Cooling.
603-290-3429
He did a great job of changing out my old propane forced air unit for a new one this past spring.
Steve Buy was recommended to me, but he said he couldn't look at my job for 3 months--not a great reply since we were without heat.

Default Steve Buy

Called him several times. Always took call but never would set up a time to do work. Thought he was a real find but not so much now.

It seems like all contractors are extremely busy now and short on help.
I have a few close friends that run service companies that can't even find general laborers.
The good ones tend to take care of their regular customers and don't have the time or the help to take on new ones.
It's just a sign of the times. A lot of the American youth today go to college and don't want jobs that require getting their hands dirty.

I was a customer. He was great!! Then when I was simply looking for a regular service call he could not arrange a time. I understand if he is busy...just say that versus putting the customer off over and over again. IMHO some of these contractors do not get that service is the gravy train that allows them to make money in both good and bad times.

Not to worry I found someone else to do the annual service.

I had the same issue with my fence guy. He had been repairing my fence for the past 20 years.
He came and looked at it back in May, said he would take care of it, and never returned after repeated calls.
I have a new fence guy now and he did a terrific job. He wasn't very complimentary of the guy who did the repairs in the past. He said they were done half a$$ed.

It is true, they are all extremely busy now, but I agree, just tell people that. Answer the phone or return the call and say you are too busy.
