Very impressed with the service by JR GAS and WATER!!. Immediate response and very professional. Prices up front on the website and communication throughout. Due to Christmas closures the Enviroheat 250EH1-15 Heat Pump Water Heater was not available until the supplier reopened in 5 days time. JR Gas and Water arranged to pick it up 6am on the day they opened and arrived at my house at 7am for a seemless install. The installers Brandon and Lachlan were great to deal with and have completed a very neat and professional install. The Enviroheat unit is quiet, stylish and heated up quickly. The unit looks extremely well made and I am very happy with my choice in both Enviroheat and JR Gas and Water. Thanks again guys!
