Solar Bear (Papa Bear) continues to call my teenage daughter's cell phone and tries to pitch their business. She has told them repeatedly that she is a minor and that they are calling her cell phone. This does not seem to matter to them.

Stay away from this company it is a big rip off the best words would explain this company Crock, thief . Generally they call you offer you discount check up and two ponds of free Freon. When they get to your house they come up with a long list of problems which is not true. I know, I have heard about this company I had my system checked up and knew it was no problem then I called them they came in with a $1850 repair I kicked them out, Do not fall for this company even they give you free service.

I'm also on the DoNotCall list and just received an unsolicited call from them. i would never use a company that ignores the law. I'll stick with Christian Bros or Hilco, they're very reputable. Next time they call me the AG will be

Papa Bear is our favorite ac/plumbing company in the valley. We have lived here 11 years and have tried many company's but they seem to be on the ball when we have any problems. We appreciate all the hard working techs/plumbers you have

Three hours later I had not heard a thing. I was tired of waiting. My neighbor told me about Papa Bear. Within a half hour they called me back and scheduled me for the next morning, which is what I wanted. I called the other company back and they didn't even ask why I wascanceling! --- Pierre Williams

I had a tenant at one of my properties call and report that the heater was no longer working. I called Papa Bear and spoke to customer service about my situation. "No problem", he said and asked if I would like him to call the tenant directly so I didn't have to play the middle man. He said they would be happy to give a free estimate and that they would call me when they were there to give me a quote over the phone. This way I could decide if I wanted to proceed with the work or not. The technician called me after he was on the property and said it was just a safety switch on the furnace door that had gone bad. He fixed it and it is still operating normally. -- Melissa

I had talked to three companies regarding replacing my leaking water heater. Papa Bear came out as soon as they were done with another customer. They quoted a very competitive price and put my mind at ease with their great customer

Had no clue that annual maintenance on my heating and air conditioning was just as important as an oil change on a car. At first I was apprehensive when they called to pitch the service to me but for $40 I thought... why not? Recently one

Do what you say you will do WHEN you say you will do it! I have been waiting over two weeks for the pro-rated refund on my service contract, yet every time I call I'm told someone needs to "check on it." I think you just want to keep my

I received a sales call from Solor Bear today. I asked the caller to please take me off of their calling list. He then became rude and asked in a sarcastic voice, *how do you know you want to be taken off a list when you don't even know

This is a great service company. We had a problem last year with our air conditioning system. They came to my home at 2 AM to find and fix the problem and got us back up and running on the HOT July night. While there they purposed we join their preventative maintenenace we were skeptical at first but after now recieving our first check up since then We couldnt be happier. Thank you so much Solar Bear we look forward to seeing you continuously and will recomend you to all of our friends.

My experience with this company was nothing short of wonderful. I had they come to my mothers home for 39 dollars, first off, 39 dollars to flush the hot water heater, treat my drains and check all the plumbing in my home is un heard off. I thought as first theres a catch but there wasnt they really did all of that for 39 dollars. I did have a small leak in my hot water heater . I knew that my hot water heater was 15 years old it was costing me more money to leave it in my house than to finiance another one that is energy efficent . they suggested i replace it . I said if i dont replace it how much does this visit really cost bob the master plumber and co owner of solar bear said 39 dollars its that simple. he was going to pack up his gear but i told him ill give it a shot . they replaced it that day removed the old one for a great price i priced the water heater alone they sold it to me a bradford white high capacity water heater for less then what home depot or lowes would ever sell it to me for. installtion was fast freindly and neat . Neat is important to me as a customer I have a nice home I want to keep it that way. Installtion was a flat rate again unheard of in this industry. Im very happy I wish I had the money for there service plan i did not , guess what didnt matter bob said if there is any issue with there work they would come back in the following 6 months and check on it free.... wow, i know it sounds crazy but my mom is old i live with her pay the rent make sure she doesnt get taking for a ride she didnt i would trust them when i wasnt home with mom... I dont want to talk numbers but i dare you to find a company that will install anything at flat rates or work with you and finance ytou in house my credit shot they still helped me . the last time i had a plumber out for me and mom was about 3 years ago i had a pipe burst cost my 500 dollars to repair i showed bob the repair he took a picture of it and sent it off to the bbb for me to show that someone had screwed me over and even offered to help rectify the problem at a fraction of the cost since i was tapped out after the hot water heater so he insisted he make a small repair as part of my service since it could effect my hot ater heater he said if it leaks he come out rain or shine and get it taking care of when i was ready I dont know about the other people on here but iI think they didnt get the right Solat bear i couldnt be happier

I'm not entirely sure this is the same Solar Bear that came to my house yesterday (they were supposed to be based in Chandler) but probably is. A guy named Lance had called in the morning and said I could have a "Master Plumber" come to the house, check/flush-out the water heater, check sink drains, address any toilet issues. All for $39. I knew that it was going to be one of those deals where they find a bunch of things wrong, then attempt to drum-up business by offering to fix them. But, I'm thick-skinned enough that they usually don't bother me. Also I plan on having my kitchen remodeled next year so wanted to get next to a reputable plumber. Avery Scott showed-up on time and proceeded to to work on the water heater, told me a couple useful facts about them. All the time he was here he, basically, talked about what a great plumber he is and how expensive his time is. His self-aggrandizement eventually became truly annoying. Of course he found several problems with the water heater, all due to "calcium build-up". The pressure-release valve was bad, the rod-thingy that attracts metallic particles was probably bad. He couldn't get the latter out, told me "You'll just have to wait until it starts leaking." He got the pressure-release valve out and was going to replace it. I asked him how much that would cost. He said "$125 installed". I said "$125? That's a LONG way from $39." He said, "I can put the old one back." I said "Please do. I'll go buy one myself and put it in. I can't imagine they cost more that ten bucks at Home Depot." He said "They cost about $15." So he was going to charge me $110 labor to screw that into the top of the tank. Such a deal. He proceeded to drain the tank, got some calcium out, sure it helped the tank's life. But at that point I decided he and his company really weren't the people I wanted to work with. He inspected the rest of the house, put drain cleaner in the sinks, gave me a free flapper-valve for a toilet. All good. But, all the time he worked he talked about how good he was at plumbing and that he deserved all the money he could get out of his customers. At one point I told him, "Well, you ain't getting it out of me!" He finished, left. I felt annoyed. Their $39 thing was worthwhile but the attempt to get another $125 out of me was, I felt, sleazy. And all his blowing-his-own-horn crap and money talk made me feel like I would never, ever contact them again.

These people are using some kind of autodialer to call our family's phone line repeatedly - even though we're on the National Do Not Call List and have NEVER had business with this company. The worst part is, they just hang up on us when we answer! We've attempted to call them and have us taken off our list, but they just shuffle us off to a voice mail box. Lotta luck that does.

If this is how they treat non-customers, just imagine how they'll abuse your contact information if you actually *do* business with them! There are plenty of reputable AC companies in Arizona, this does not appear to be one of them.
