Gene worked with me to select a Fujitsu heat pump system for my country home. He spent much time aiding me to select a system and optimize its placement. The installation was performed in a timely manner with attention to detail and cleanliness. The system developed a problem about a month after installation and ceased to function. Gene worked with Fujitsu to diagnose the problem, make a repair to get the unit back into service and then, on his own initiative, later replaced a part to assure that the problem was completely addressed.

Heat pump systems have limited application under extreme cold conditions. Gene carefully explained such limitations and the energy efficiency and comfort benefits of the system under conditions from moderate cold conditions in winter/spring/fall to hot conditions in during summers.

My view on contractors, similar to doctors, is that you can't just hire someone, let them make all the choices for you, and then be upset if you don't get what you want. For heating systems, balancing cost and performance is critical, and this is a decision that the home owner must make. Gene didn't present himself as the resident expert, but instead worked with me to arrive at an optimal solution based on his knowledge and my research and stated expectations.

Gene Knoth does the heating and plumbing for our church building -- three bathrooms, a large kitchen, and a complicated multi-zone heating system. He has been utterly reliable, honest, and responsive in emergencies. He has done flat-out great work for us.

DO NOT EVER HIRE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!!! I bought a 220 year old house that this Gene Knoth and I guess his "company" had to come into to dewinterize the house for closing. He busted the guts to the sink in the upstairs bathroom busted the vintage porcelaine on the bathtub fixture handle and toilet handle, didn't even fix the main floor shower and other plumbing issues in the basement. Any leaks were supposed to be fixed and they weren't! There were leaks all over the place and this man had the nerve to charge over 3K for the work-I have the receipts. Do not EVER hire this man because I am paying over 3K to fix the mess he created that could have ruined my house. What a loser!!!! What goes around comes around harder......I don't even want to give this man one star, he doesn't deserve it at all.

I've never had a negative experience with Knoth Heating. They responded promptly when I called. The staff was courteous and helpful. They installed a System 2000 for me last winter, and I realized significant savings on my oil bill in just a couple of months! I would easily recommend Knoth to anyone with plumbing or heating concerns.

Knoth plumbing is run by a knowledgeable plumber, but he does not do the work. He instead hires lackies who are incompetant , slow, and untrained. He charges 75.00 per hour for the work which if done by a real plumber going at experienced speed would be fair. He overcharges, has to re-dowork two and three times. And then blames the customer..

I would avoid this company at all costs.

I also done the mistake of hire Gene Knoth to install a sink and a water heater. The workers that were sent to my house were no plumbers but a MOVER and a CARPENTER that Gene Knoth hired and suddenly were instant plumbers they took 6 hours to install a pedestal sink and the water lines were reversed and the sink mounted lose to the wall with simple Sheetrock screws the sink came off the wall and the water heater Gene Knoth installed was not placed properly the went was leaking toxic fumes in my house and the water heater used more gas then the old one when I called Gene Knoth and complained about the problem he gave me a song and dance and tried to charge me what he called a (displacement fee) of $400 plus he tried to charge me for the repairs that he made. NO do not call Knoth if you do you will not get real plumbers but a bunch of amateurs and get a bill that is outrageous plus extra hidden charges

Gene Knoth has worked on my plumbing and heating for several years and has always done a good job. He oversaw the replacement of my well pump and water tank and recently replaced my furnace. He has always been very professional and careful.
