"I called Kook & Son to convert the old oil system into a more efficient and less expensive gas. Howard Kook came and made an assessment and the decision was made to go ahead with the new system. The work was highly professional and was completed on time. The system is quiet and efficient and after a final adjustment its running really good and keeping the house nice and warm. What its most impressive is that everything was done on time and in a way that I feel it was with a peace of mind. I contacted Kook & Son because in the past they have done work in the house, and I was no brainer that if I wanted good service and a good price I needed to contact Howard again." - Bernardo V., Jersey City, NJ
"My water heater broke so I found them when I needed a plumber in an emergency. I ended up calling several places and they were the first to come over. They fixed my water heater and they told me it was a small problem and that they carried the part they needed so they fixed it on the spot. No waiting." - Randy T., New York, NY
"Post-Sandy, Kook & Son replaced my HVAC system and trouble-shooted my high energy usage. They are very responsive and solution-oriented." - Janet B., Little Ferry, NJ
"Needed a water boiler to be replaced in my apartment in Union City, NJ. Mine was 12 years old which meant it needed to go. I called three different plumbing companies, and Kook and Son seemed the most reliable (Mind you I based my assessment on a single phone conversation but well ... ). I asked for a price range for my 40L Gaz water boiler to be replaced. Note that there is a premium for weekend service and for non-elevator building. I talked to Howard, the great child of the founder of the company (it's over 100 years old).

I took half a day off and met the guys (2 of them) at the apartment - They waited for about 15 minutes downstairs in their running truck before coming up (Not sure what that says but I figure I'd mention it ...). They looked at the old boiler, emptied it, brought the new one up, adequately protected my wood floor, were nice and explaining what they were doing. They were pretty knowledgeable and handy..." - Nicolas V., New York, NY
"It was like the people from 'This Old House" were working on mine! I have a 100 year old house with a water radiator heating system the same age. After 2 plumbers from different companies came in and scratched their heads as to how to fix my heating system, Howard Kook came over and immediately knew about and could explain every little quirk of the system. I was blown away with his knowledge. Though he did not do the actual work on my system, his 2 workers were extremely knowledgeable and professional. They knew how to fix every issue. Now rooms where I thought the radiators were lost causes, are warm and toasty! Kook and Son are not cheap, but hands down absolutely worth the money vs someone cheaper who 'thinks' he can fix it. I'm happy to have found a company that knows how to work on an old house. Would hire again with no hesitation. Plus, they have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau." - Rubes R., Jersey City, NJ
"We've been relying on Kook & Son for more than 20 yrs. Howard has never let us down, and always treated us fairly, including installing and servicing a combination furnace/water heater. Kook might be more expensive than others (I don't know, haven't checked) but the reliability factor is worth it. I've never been charged for travel time, surprised to read that in other reviews. The service guys are knowledgeable and also very reliable." - Brooke C., Jersey City, NJ
