Plumbing and Heating

I am the 2nd generation owner and CEO of Sunshine Plumbing & Heating. It all started with my parents, Joe & Anna Santangelo. They immigrated to this country from Italy and had dreams of how America would provide opportunity for them and our family. My dad brought to America an amazing work ethic and a commitment to do the right thing that he developed as a poor farmer in the old country.

Because my dad and mother had a burning desire to change their poor past and be able to help others, they opened Sunshine Plumbing here in Albuquerque in 1973. He had one rule as he started expanding the business and hiring people:

“No matter what, do the right thing.”

And I didn’t just inherit the business. Dad made me work long hard hours in the business, working from the ground up. I had to do every job, no matter how dirty, so I would develop the same work ethic he brought to this country and to this business. His business philosophy, that the customer is our most important asset, that is what has made us so successful for over 40 years, when others have gone out of business.

I learned that the hard way. Long hours working a service truck until I REALLY understood what the business was about. My dad, the patron of Sunshine Plumbing, taught me the best lessons of all. Honesty and customer care will always payoff for the business. My dad built a legacy in me that I am determined to bring to you, our customers, and the business.

What We Do

What People Are Saying About Us

Dependable! Reliable! Conscientious! Clean!

We like having Sunshine Plumbing & Heating service our heater, air conditioner, and water heater. We are part of the Friends and Family Plan, so they come out once or twice a year to check on things. We’ve been using them for about ten years. About two years ago, we had them replace our main heating and air conditioning system. Sunshine isn’t the cheapest out there, but we like having them in our house. They keep the work minimal and clean. Five stars for Sunshine Plumbing & Heating! They do a fantastic job!

They Always Respond Quickly!

Sunshine Plumbing & Heating always arrive when they say they will. The servicemen are professional, friendly, and courteous. They are very knowledgeable about plumbing and that is one of the reasons I keep using them. I have been their customer for about three years and they always respond quickly when I call and that is very important when you’re having a plumbing issue. They have also done maintenance work for me on my heat and air system. I recommend them because of the top-quality work they do. It is wonderful to find a company that has great service, consistently.

Very Good!

I’ve been using Sunshine Plumbing & Heating for the last few years now thanks to their really good customer service and good pricing, and recently had them out to do a sewer scope at my home. They showed up on time and did everything I asked of them, and they were very good! Their workers were knowledgeable, prompt, and polite! They even did an air conditioning check for my father recently, and also did a good job. I would definitely use them again!

They Were Wonderful From Start To Finish

I had a big job with replumbing our whole house, and the builder of our home told me about Sunshine Plumbing & Heating. They came every day, did what they said they were going to do for the price they gave me, and everything came out perfect. The plumbers were friendly and efficient. They were just great people. I don’t have one bad thing to say about them. From start to finish, they were wonderful, and I would totally use them again!

They’ve Been Very Good To Us

Sunshine Plumbing & Heating has been very good to us, and we can’t complain. We first used them when they had to redo all of the heating and plumbing. We had a contractor who took advantage of us because we are elderly and my husband is disabled. Sunshine came and did a good job cleaning up the mess and bringing everything to code. We also used them twice within the past few months to fix a leaky shower in our bathroom, along with clearing a clogged sink. They are professional and respectful, and I’ve already recommended them to others. I would use them again.

Sunshine Plumbing does make my day brighter

Sunshine Plumbing gives me confidence to remain in my home. Any problem I have called them for, Sunshine responds Professionally and Quickly! The key word is quickly. Whenever I have called, whoever answers the phone, works very hard to find someone to respond. The plumbers have been so pleasant to deal with and creative in their approach to fix my problem. I guess you could say that I really rely on Sunshine.

When I call Sunshine Plumbing & Heating, they actually show up. Our experience over the last year or so has been good. They show up quickly and solve the problem. The invoicing takes a little bit longer than I would like, but otherwise, everything is good! I recommend Sunshine Plumbing & Heating.


Very Good & Very Responsive

I have been using Sunshine Plumbing & Heating since I bought my current air conditioning unit, and I think they are very good and responsive. They have always been pretty good with me, and they never monkey around or try to sell me things that I don’t need. Last month they came out to hook up our A/C unit. Since there was cold weather about to set in, they left the damper and heater connected, and three days later they came back to take out the damper, disconnect the heater, and finish setting up the A/C for the upcoming season. They are convenient, excellent, and they’ll be the first company I’d call if anything else needs work.

Repeat Happy Customer

Sunshine Plumbing & Heating came out and flushed my in-floor radiant heating system to clear the lines. They were here for about three hours inspecting and maintenance of the entire unit. They are always professional and very nice to deal with. They did an excellent job! I highly recommend their services to everyone!
