Refrigerator Repair Rescue

“Home-Tech to the rescue!  We made the mistake of purchasing our refrigerator from a big box store thinking we could get the best price.  We immediately started having problems and that is when the nightmare started.

After staying home and waiting for service on two separate occasions, (both my wife and I work), whoever the big box store sends out could not solve our problem.  My neighbor recommended Home-Tech.  We called Home-Tech and when I explained to them that a customer, our neighbor, recommended their service they came right out.  These guys really know what they’re doing and they finally fixed our problem.  We are now Service Agreement customers on all of our appliances and air conditioning.  We couldn’t be happier with their service.  Call Home-Tech.  You’ll be glad you did.” ~Jerry R.  Sarasota, FL

Home-Tech gets these kind of calls and reviews each day.  We know that when your refrigerator stops cooling, it’s an emergency.  There’s nothing worse than losing all of the food in your refrigerator and freezer when this appliance fails!

Service Agreement from Home-Tech “A Perfect Fit”


From Larry C – in Akron, OH

“My Mother lives in Punta Gorda and her air conditioner went out.  Of course she calls me, her son that lives in Ohio to ask me what to do.  I’m not that familiar with the area but I went online to check for a repair company.  I came across Home-Tech’s site and it was very informative.  They have been in business for many years, they are employee owned.  I gave them a call and set an appointment.  I wasn’t there but my Mom was very impressed and comfortable with the service and asked me to take out the service agreement for future repairs.  The service agreement is a perfect fit for Mom and saves me the time and anxiety.  Mom will call you guys now!  Thanks for being there.”


Customer Happy With Refrigerator Repair

“We just got in from Ohio and found our refrigerator was not working.  Fortunately we had emptied before we left in May.  We didn’t know who to call but found a magnet on the fridge.  We called Home-Tech that night for our refrigerator repair and they were willing to come out right then but we said that the next morning would be fine.  Sure enough they called first thing in the morning and had a man on the way.  Alex was a very nice man and quickly found the problem, made the repair and offered a big discount on the service if we signed up for their service contract.  It was a great offer and we were so impressed with the service so we signed up.  Found out most of our neighbors already had their contract.  We’ve lived most of our lives in Ohio and never had service like Home-Tech.  I would recommend this service to anyone.”

Appliances for Two Cooks in the Kitchen

Appliances for Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen

Appliances for Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen

Anyone who has ever stood shoulder to shoulder with another cook, over a range, must wonder how couples who like to cook together all the time can accomplish it without losing patience with each other. Every time you need a burner, there is already something going on it. When you try to open the oven to take something out, or just check the turkey, you have to ask the other person to move. Then you have to be careful not to burn each other with hot pans when you rearrange items. Anyone who has done this dance of danger in the kitchen certainly has wondered what the solution is.  Being appliance experts, Home-Tech can make some great suggestions for the kitchen with too many cooks.

Surveys say that over 25% of households now have two or more cooks preparing meals at their appliances at the same time. Kitchens have become a more social place for families. It’s common now for more hands to be busy. With only one of each appliance, it can be very difficult for two cooks to accomplish anything easily. It’s very difficult to move around.  Someone is always in the way.

Split Them Up (the Appliances – not the Cooks)

Separating the cooktop from the oven can be the perfect solution for two cook kitchen owners. Usually the cooking surface is moved to a separate island. Some families even require a second cooktop if they use specialized burners for grilling, barbeque, deep frying or cooking on a griddle. If one of the cooks has a preference for cooking on gas or electric, this can be solved by having two different cooktops. Having additional burners really helps too, for side by side meal preparation. One of the many appliances Home-Tech sells is the Whirlpool G7CE3055XS. It has 5 burners.

Benefits to a Wall Oven:two cooks in the kitchen

  • It is not as hard to take items in and out.  For people with limited strength it is easier to use. Less lifting and bending is required.
  • Some wall units are actually two ovens in one. This is perfect for baking separate dishes at different temperatures.
  • They save space in the kitchen.
  • One of many that Home-Tech recommends in our online store is the Whirlpool model RBD307PVS.

Prep and Clean Up

Two sinks are the most requested by couples who cook together. It’s easier to share  appliances than a sink. Having two sinks and two garbage disposals can come in handy during the prep time, as well as for clean up time.

  • Install the second sink in the island as well.
  • Be sure to have quality garbage disposals installed as they will run more quietly.
  • Many people don’t realize that Home-Tech sells, installs and repairs garbage disposals.  Be sure to call us if  you need help with this.

Having two dishwashers is the ultimate for clean up ease. The second dishwasher can be installed near the cooking area or near where the dishes are stored. A double drawer dishwasher can come in handy, as the drawers can be run separately and with different wash cycles. So, one drawer can wash all of the pots and pans and the other the delicate china. Home-Tech recommends the KitchenAid KUDH03DTSS in our online store because it is whisper quiet.

Some families have special needs for an additional refrigerator or freezer. Hunters, fisherman, and gardeners need somewhere to store their bounty. Orthodox Jewish families keep the meat and milk separate according to their dietary laws. Some just want to have a drink fridge to keep all of their beverages cold. Home-Tech offers basic Energy Star model appliances with very inexpensive yearly operational costs –  less than $45 a year. Home-Tech’s appliance specialists can help you pick out the perfect model, whether it’s an inexpensive second refrigerator or a high end wine cooler if you are a wine enthusiast.
