Part of the value of having a GOLD Service Agreement with Home-Tech is that one annual air conditioning maintenance and clean and check is included at NO CHARGE. Our expert technicians are a valuable resource when it comes to your ac maintenance. If you haven’t scheduled your clean and check yet this spring, call Home-Tech today to make your appointment.
To Whom It May Concern,
We scheduled a maintenance appointment for our two air conditioning units on Friday between 8:00 am – 12:00 pm. The service was great…..call received regarding the time frame a technician would arrive and Chet appeared within that time frame. He was very polite and professional; serviced both units and cleaned all return filters.
Your service is so valuable to us as seasonal clients. When an issue arrives we have always had immediate service. We sincerely thank you.

Joe just left our home about ½ hour ago after performing our semi-annual AC system clean and check and I wanted to let you know that he did a wonderful job, was professional, and even “up-sold” me into purchasing a UV anti-bacterial device/system for our AC system. Thank you for having such fine people working with Home Tech. It is one of the main reasons why we have remained faithful customers for over 20+ years – first in Naples and now in Bonita Springs.

It’s that time of year to get your AC Clean and Check done. If you are a GOLD Service Agreement Member this service is included in your coverage. There is no charge for it. Home-Tech technicians are very busy now doing AC service as the temperatures rise in southwest Florida. Today’s Attaboys are about Chet. If you have had an experience with Home-Tech that you would like to share about please do so on our Facebook page or you can give us a Google review. We really do love hearing from our customers and our remarkable technicians like hearing your feedback as well.
I would like to compliment the young man who came out to do our annual cleaning and filter change service today. His name was Chet. He was one of the nicest young men I have ever had come to my home. He explained everything he was going to do, took his time doing it, and was very efficient. We have always had good service from Home-Tech and this service again was excellent. Thank you.
Chet was at our home yesterday for our clean and check. He was very personable and did a great job.
I just wanted to let you know that Chet did a great job on our yearly check today. He is a very friendly and personable employee. He was thorough and listened to my concerns.
Just like to mention the work that Chet did at our home. He was thorough, he was very helpful and did his best to fulfill Home-Tech’s obligation to service our AC and to get us up and running. He was aware of his limitations and followed through to get us to the next level of service that was needed. Thank you.
Chet was here today to perform annual service on my a/c. He did a great job. Very personable young man and you should be proud to have him as an employee of Home-Tech.
May has officially arrived and in Southwest Florida, that basically means the beginning of seven long months of heat and humidity. In other parts of the country, they’re happily waving goodbye to one of the most brutal winters ever, as they joyously open their windows and doors to allow a lovely spring breeze into their homes. But here, we’re doing just the opposite. We’re closing everything up and cranking our thermostats down (as I pen this missive, it’s 91 degrees and 60 percent humidity – and it’s only May 1st). But, what if, just what if, it stopped working?
We all have fears – but if you’re like me, one of the most terrifying things imaginable is having your A/C die. A good, working, cold air conditioner is key to survival in our tropical climate. Some say they’re “fine” with opening windows and running ceiling fans, but I’d rather pay for air-conditioning than just about anything. I’m happy to give up a new pair of shoes or a handbag if it means keeping my thermostat at 70 degrees at night. And any woman who has ever experienced a hot flash KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.
Last summer, my fear came to pass. Our A/C was not pushing out cold air – and it was August. It was also a Sunday evening (of COURSE). My first thought was to check into a hotel, but then I remembered Home-Tech. The Tech Rep was there lickety-split – and luckily it was an easy fix – he replaced some fluids and the A/C was doing its thing again before I was nearly forced to dunk my head in a sink full of ice water.
Home-Tech is your May Day call on May Day or ANY day if your air-conditioner – or any appliance – needs a fix. And remember, the First Call’s On Us! That means Home-Tech will cover your first repair up to $200 when you purchase a Gold Service Agreement – taking the anxiety out of a long, hot summer is SO worth it. Personally, I’ll never forget the technician who saved my life with a May Day call last year – and my husband is grateful, too – menopausal women in non-air conditioned environments should be approached with caution. Trust me.
Did you know that in Southwest Florida most ac systems only last between 8 and 14 years? Isn’t that surprising? It’s because of the conditions here in SW Florida and how often our air conditioning systems run to keep us cool. If your system is reaching the end of its lifetime you might be thinking it’s time to start considering an air conditioning installation. And once you make that decision to replace, you have three more equally important decisions. At Home Tech we call these decisions WHAT, WHICH and WHO.
You may be thinking . . . I’ll just replace the old system with the same type of system. But with all the technological advancements and improvements made in indoor comfort systems you will find that taking just a little time to choose the right type of new system that perfectly matches your lifestyle and comfort needs will give your home years of feeling just right and considerable savings.
In choosing which type the considerations are:
In Southwest Florida we have few days that require heat so many systems are straight cool; meaning the heating source is a simple very inexpensive heat strip, kind of like a toaster in your air handling unit. The problem is it is very expensive to operate. So when we do have a cooler winter your electric bills will skyrocket.
The alternative is the heat pump. The heat pump actually reverses itself when indoor heat is needed and this type of heating is produced at one third the cost of the toaster. Home-Tech recommends the heat pump system because its efficiency is complete in both cooling and heating while the difference in installation cost is minimal. Both straight cool and heat pump systems are available in various efficiency and costs. The smart homeowner makes his efficiency decision by dividing the annual energy savings by the cost of the installation to find his best return on investment.
There are many brands of equipment on the market. So which one do you choose? Home-Tech has been servicing and installing air conditioning systems in Southwest Florida since 1981 and in our opinion two brands have consistently been the most reliable, cost efficient and cutting edge: Trane and Carrier. However in recent years the Maytag brand by Nordyne is also becoming a real contender with their 25 SEER iQ drive systems.
Who you select to install your new home comfort system is the most important decision that you will make. The contractor must be licensed, hold the required insurances, and have a proven track record of professionalism, reliability, trustworthiness and success. The sophistication of today’s equipment will only function to its full capacity if it’s installed properly. This requires skilled installers and technicians that are rarely found with the lowest bid. Like the old saying goes:
Home-Tech has serviced millions of air conditioning systems and installed tens of thousands of home comfort systems. Our employee owned installers and technicians are the best in the business and we have the history to prove it.
So what type of system – straight cool or heat pump? Which brand of system? They are not all the same. And most important who to install the system. Employee owned Home-Tech of course. We have the passion, skill, history and experience to install your brand new indoor comfort system.

Many of our seasonal residents are getting ready to head back up North for the Spring and Summer. Before you leave your home here you may want to call Home-Tech and schedule your annual air conditioning Clean and Check of your system. If you’ve never hired Home-Tech to perform air conditioning service before you may be curious as to what to expect. We’ve shared some reviews from our customers and there are many many other reviews throughout our website. If you would like to share about a service experience with Home-Tech we invite you to visit our Facebook page or give us a review on Google.
Today your representative, Chet, came to our home to conduct the annual cleaning & maintenance for our two A/C systems. Based on our past experience, we have found every one of your people to be exceptionally good representatives of your Company. However, today our experience with Chet established a new “benchmark” that others will have difficulty meeting in the future!
Chet arrived on time and with a pleasant greeting when he introduced himself. He was well dressed and spoke well. Throughout the process of cleaning and servicing our A/C system he was careful to put down a sheet to catch any falling dust and dirt and even used a dust rag before opening the hatch in the ceiling of my wife’s closet to make certain that no dirt fell on her clothes. He kept us informed of his progress and answered all of our questions directly and intelligently.
You are most fortunate to have Chet as a member of the Home-Tech Team!

I am writing to let you know that Chris was at our home this morning doing our annual check-up of our air conditioner and furnace. He was very personable and efficient. He explained all he was doing to my husband and what he needed to do to help maintain our AC/FUR. He was very neat & cleaned up after himself. Chris’s work ethic is excellent (kind, prompt, helpful, neat). He is a good ambassador for your company. We were more than pleased with Chris. Thank you.
B. McCormick, Fort Myers, FL
We are new customers and today we had our first visit from home-tech to check our air conditioning system. I cannot say enough about the technician, Jason. He was very pleasant and thorough with his inspection. Jason also explained everything to us and the condition of our system. Thank you for having such a conscientious and friendly employee.
Our technicians get a lot of fan mail about the job they do for appliance repairs or air conditioning repairs. We want to thank our customers for the constant flow of feedback that comes in. It makes all the employee owners of Home-Tech feel good to see that our customers are happy with our service. Today’s comments are about Steve and Shaun. Way to go, guys. If you would like to share any feedback with us we encourage you to review us on Facebook or give us a Google review. Thanks so much.
I want to give Steve an AttaBoy for quickly troubleshooting and fixing our AC problem today. I would also like to give an AttaBoy to Home-Tech for sending someone out so quickly to fix our AC. I am always very satisfied with Home-Tech. No question I will renew the contract when it comes time for renewal soon.
A. Rothman -Sarasota, FL
Shaun and Steve were at our home today to do repairs on our air conditioner. They conducted themselves in a very professional manner starting with introducing themselves, describing the work to be done and approximate time to do it, and proceeding to performing the work in an efficient manner.
They conducted themselves as I’m sure you would expect employee/owners to do so.
A happy Home-Tech customer,
J. Keller -Fort Myers, FL
Home-Tech technicians are highly trained in appliance repair and air conditioning repair. That’s right! We handle both! Today’s customer testimonials are about Brian and Ryan. We invite you to review Home-Tech’s service on Google, our Facebook page or Yelp. We appreciate hearing from you. Thank you!
Brian just left after a visit to repair our old(ish) Thermador oven. He arrived precisely when he said he would, and was pleasant and very professional. He even double-checked that he’d shut the access panels to our circuit panel. I give him a gold star and two thumbs up!
This email is to let you know that Brian arrived on time, was very professional, and very personable. In my opinion, those three traits are very rare these days, especially to find all three in one person! The fan on my A/C unit would not stop running and he replaced the thermostat and now it works great! “Atta Boy” Brian and Home Tech!!
If you’re reluctant to spring forward, you can always fall back with our fabulous Fall Back Plan – a Home-Tech Service Agreement. It’s the perfect solution to repairs that happen when you least expect them and it saves you thousands of dollars – money better spent on a springtime beach getaway somewhere where you’ll find fruity frozen beverages with umbrellas in them!
We knock the daylight out with even MORE savings with our First Call’s On Us offer. This means no charge on your first service call when you need a repair. With our First Call’s On Us special Home-Tech will cover this repair up to $200 when you purchase our popular GOLD Service Agreement. We’d much rather see you out and about enjoying the longer days rather than sitting at home worrying about a repair that could have been costly.
As if we hadn’t knocked the daylight out of savings enough, we’ve got a few more punches left. How about a $100 rebate on a qualifying Frigidaire Refrigerator or Range (valid until 3/31/14)? Or a $300 rebate on Electrolux Laundry Pairs? See all of the appliances rebate offers at www.home-tech.us.
There’s plenty more appliances and air conditioning savings where those came from and to introduce you to them, we’re hosting a fun Open House at our Fort Myers Showroom on Saturday, April 5th with exciting appliance giveaways and awesome savings. So, save the date and stay tuned for more info, as Home-Tech keeps on knocking the daylight out of savings!
