McQuade Plumbing opened for business in 1970 as a one man operation. A family man with five young children and a wife, Arthur McQuade supported his family with his home-based plumbing business. Karen McQuade, his wife and office manager answered the phone, scheduled his appointments and helped with managerial duties. As their children grew, the boys joined their dad on some of his jobs and learned the plumbing trade.Brian McQuade, Art's youngest son, added the heating, cooling, and refrigeration portion of the business in 1984 after he graduated from college and was certified. Father and son together formed the new business and the first office space was leased, just north of 21 Mile on Van Dyke in Utica. McQuade Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Refrigeration resided in that location for 16 years. In October 2001, the business relocated to a larger, more efficient space at 23 Mile and Schoenherr in Shelby Township. Nine years later, McQuade purchased its current building on the corner of Phoenix Drive and 19 1/2 Mile Rd. in Sterling Heights, giving the company a central location to its growing customer base.McQuade Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Refrigeration has been a family owned, Christian based business since 1970 and continues to maintain its fine reputation by adhering to the fundamental values that it was founded on and that is honesty, respect, and integrity. Servicing Macomb, Oakland, and Saint Clair Counties, you will find Brian and Vicki McQuade working alongside their courteous and dedicated office staff. We offer repair and installation services for Air Conditioning,Boilers,Commercial Services,Faucets,Frozen Pipes,Furnaces,Garbage Disposals,Humidifiers,Residential Services,Sump Pumps and more.

TERRIBLE COMMUNICATION. On 6/30/18 I emailed customer care about my desire to have a Trane XR14 4 ton AC installed. Two days later, with no communication, I decided to call. I was told that they were slammed, but the service manager would call back that day or the next. Another 2 days had passed & still no communication. I called again, & with slight variation, got the same answer as before. I called a third time asking what was going on, & got nearly the same answer as previously, “We are slammed.”

The proper thing would have been to tell me we are extremely busy, & unable to accept any new business @ this time. Instead they chose to be unprofessional by never returning my calls. I don’t understand, as my $4,300 (in cash) is as green as anybody else’s. I found a company (Comfort Temp) that respects my business. They always answer the phone, got back to me immediately, & had a service manager out the next day.

The day our electric service was out for 16 hours my A/C would not start when the service was restored. I have the Gold plan with Flame and they could not come before 8 to 12 the following day. I called McQuade and they sent Dave Kote at 10pm and he was very efficient and had my air running within 15 minutes. A follow up was required to repair my generator. I will not renew with Flame and in the future will call McQuade.

McQuade Heating came to my house to do a home inspection. They were very thorough and informed me of the issues that needed to be addressed. They did a great job.

Meticulous, Clean. Quality Product. Reasonable Pricing. They actually do what they say they are going to do when they say they are going to do it, and make no excuses. I highly recommend McQuade without any reservations. The crew on my residential install of Furnace, Air Conditioning, and Water Heater was Mike, Tony, Jack and Wade. They took time to explain what they were doing and why, and appeared to thoroughly enjoy what they were doing, and were meticulous about their work.

Thank you for sending out Nathan for my water horror situation. He is pleasant, professional and knows what to do to solve the problem

Mike really did great work for us. Instead of the one job he came for, he thought about the project as a whole. He really helped get to the bottom of what was wrong with our furnace and it has made all the difference.

The technician was great. He spent a lot of time with us explaining what kind of system would work for us. He answered all of our questions throughout the process as well. I would refer them to anyone, and actually already have. They even sent flowers to our house after the installation, I was completely surprised. I have had a lot of work done at my house, and never has a company actually sent flowers after the service was complete. I was completely blown away by this.

I have always used McQuade Heating and Cooling for all of my Heating and Cooling needs for my home. They provide reliable service and are priced very fair. From right when I call there staff is helpful, courteous, and provide very responsive service. We have even had to use them in a emergency situation when our basement flooded because of our sump pump malfunctioned. I have no complaints with them, when you need them they come, do a wonderful job and provide quality work. They are very informative and overall provide great service which is why I have used them all of these years and I recommend them to anyone in the Sterling Heights area.
