We always enjoy hearing from our customers!

We Love Working With Home-Tech for a Refrigerator Repair

To Whom It May Concern,

We want to give an “Atta Boy” shout out to both Milt and Steve, who came out to Lakewood Ranch to service our GE Monogram Side by Side Refrigerator Freezer.

We knew there was a leak and even though these guys were not scheduled to see us that day; they showed up, friendly as can be, and stayed until they got the job done (which was not easy)!!  We were very impressed with them and appreciated their hard work more than they know. We love working with Home Tech!

Sincerely,

R. Littlejohn, Lakewood Ranch, FL

We Appreciate the AttentionAir Conditioning Home-Tech Service vehicle

To whom it may concern,
My wife and I just had an issue with our Samsung refrigerator which we had purchased from you July, 2013.  Just recently, we had started hearing a vibration coming from the fridge which we had not heard before.   We called to make an appointment to have someone come out to check to see what the problem was.  We spoke with Lisa who is responsible for all the warranty covered appliances.  After explaining the problem, she scheduled a day for a tech to come to our residence.  First it was Marty who came and tried to hear the vibration to see where it might be coming from.  Unfortunately, he was here for 45 minutes and never heard the vibration.  Because of his work schedule and the fact he had not heard the vibration, we all concluded it would be best if he continued on with his day.  Though he did suggest that we could try recording the sound and then replay it for him or another tech who may respond if it should continue to make the vibrating noise.  The next day, we heard it again and called Lisa again.  She scheduled another tech to come out.  Brian S came out.  Because we were able to record the vibration, we played it for him and he knew almost immediately where the noise was coming from.  He moved the fridge out from the wall and took off the back panel.  During this time, he was able to recycle the fridge and the noise did occur.  As he looked, he did not see anything malfunctioning, however, he did put his hand on something and the vibration stopped.  It seemed as though a small piece of  plastic may have been causing the vibration so he moved it somewhat and the vibration stopped.  When he replaced the rear panel, he used some extra padding in order to reduce any further vibration.  He also suggested that the fridge remain an extra inch or two out further from the wall.  After a day or so, the vibration returned.  So, we called Lisa again and again she rescheduled a tech to come to the house.  This time it was Marty again.  As soon as he came to the house, he was able to hear the vibration.  He too determined that the vibration was coming from the rear of the fridge.  He removed the panel, also determined that it was nothing mechanical but did find that a horizontal, thin black bar seemed to be causing the vibration because it seemed to have moved out of place.  He moved the bar back into place and he recycled the fridge to see if the vibration would occur and it did not.  He replaced the back panel and put the fridge back in place and also agreed to keep the fridge an inch or two away from the wall.  Since then, we have not heard the vibration at all.  It has been a week and half and we have not heard any vibration noises.
Needless to say, we are very, very pleased with the service and the attention that was given to this somewhat minor problem.  We can’t say enough about Lisa who was very patient and also very attentive to our needs.  Brian and Marty both were patient, understood the problem and were more than accommodating.  We would just like you to know how much we appreciate the attention that was given to our problem.  Of course, we have never had any problem with any of the techs that have been to our home.
Thanks again.

Brian serviced our refrigerator months ago.  He left his comment card, which we didn’t respond immediately because the problem had been recurring so frequently. I found it today when cleaning out my desk and want to let you know that it appears he resolved the problem and the refrigerator is working fine now. He was very professional and helpful so we wanted to be sure to comment.
Thanks Brian!

Best Air Conditioning Clean and Check Reviews

Air Conditioning GaugeMany 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.

Thorough Air Conditioning Check

I had my annual service check done today by your tech Chris.  He was thorough and very pleasant.  He also took the time to explain several features of my HVAC system and other appliances.  Excellent!

Prompt, Polite and EfficientHome-Tech Air conditioning repair

We just had the good fortune of having your service rep Joe service our central air conditioner. Joe took the time to explain to this novice (me) exactly how the system worked, what he was doing and how to set it up for optimum performance once we head north for the summer. He was prompt, polite and efficient. You can be proud of him as a representative of your company.

Regards,

Home-Tech,

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!

Very Neat and Cleaned UpAir conditioning repair line set

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.

Delizio! Hot Pizza Appliance (ALF-PZA-NG)

pizza oven fresh pizzaYou’ve heard of the age-old rivalry between New York and Chicago — which city makes the best style of pizza? New York City pizza lovers swear by a flat, crispy crust with plenty of sauce and grease — the slices are so big, that New Yorkers fold them in half and eat them as they rush down the busy streets of the city. But, head west to Chicago — and it’s a different story. Pizza chefs in the Windy City are loyal to deep dish pizza. Almost like a casserole, its thick, chewy, warm dough topped with thick stringy cheese is beloved by Chicagoans and they insist theirs is the BEST.

Alfresco Pizza Oven – Fun and Practical For Your Outdoor Kitchenpizza oven

As the debate rages on, we here at Home-Tech are ready take on BOTH of those big cities to declare that the best pizza is made by our costumers — in their own back yards with one of the most fun appliances we have to offer: The Alfresco Natural Gas Outdoor Pizza Appliance (Oven model number, ALF-PZA-NG). We’ve all seen outdoor grills, ovens, even refrigerators — back yards and patios aren’t just Hibachis and lawn chairs anymore — and this outdoor pizza oven takes parties and outdoor dinners to a whole new level.

State of the Art Pizza Cooking

The Alfresco Outdoor Pizza Oven has plenty of room for your homemade pizza at 30″ wide and with stainless steel double doors. Inside, there’s an infrared hearth heating system and a ceramic gas log rear burner — that’s a whopping 40,000 BTUs of cooking power! That means your large, authentic oven-fired pizzas are hot and ready in just 4 minutes. In addition to a ceramic tile surface that allows your pizza to be cooked evenly, there’s also the internal oven light, which makes it ideal for night time cooking.

fresh hot pizza from pizza ovenGreat Price!

So, whether you like your crust thick or thin, with lots of pepperoni, or no anchovies — now is the time to check out the Alfresco Pizza Oven at Home-Tech. It normally sells for $8,374, but currently, we have it for just $5,599 in our appliance showroom. Watch out New York and Chicago — the best pizza in America will be coming from the backyards of Southwest Florida!

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.

Man Finds Leprechaun In His Refrigerator!

refrigerator leprichaunThis just in – Mick O’ Malley of Southwest Florida opened his refrigerator on St. Patrick’s Day to find a wee, green leprechaun lurking inside. Upon discovering the alleged mythological creature, O’ Malley immediately alerted local police. According to Officer Brian O’ Callahan, O’ Malley was pretty shook up, “Me and the missus had a few friends over for St. Pat’s Day,” he explained. “I went to the ‘fridge to get another Guinness – it helps the corn beef and cabbage go down, ya’ know – and there he was! He had a little pipe in his hand and he looked real cheerful – he was doing a little jig on top of my case of beer!”

Man Fails Sobriety Test

Suspicious, Officer O’ Callahan issued a field sobriety test on O’ Malley and determined that his leprechaun sighting was the result of too many spirited adult beverages. “I’m Irish, too,” said Officer O’ Callahan. “On St. Patrick’s Day, revelers have been known to see little green men. We’re used to these reports.” Officer O’ Callahan advised O’ Malley to drink several glasses of water, take two Advils, and head to bed.

Avoid Leprechaun Sightings With The Keginatorrefrigerator leprichaun 2

For not that much green, beer connoisseurs and St. Patrick’s Day partiers can cut the fridge out altogether with True’s Beverage Dispenser available at Home-Tech. It’s perfect for a keg of beer, thus earning the name “The Keginator”. With two convenient taps, and an ice cold cooling system, you won’t have to open the door and risk seeing any dancing leprechauns (they still may be there, but you won’t see them, trust us). You don’t need the luck of the Irish to learn more, just your cheerful Home-Tech Rep — where your pot of gold awaits you! And remember the old saying: “An Irishman is never drunk as long as he can hold onto one blade of grass to keep from falling off the earth.”

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us at Home-Tech.

Service Tech Boss!

Gold Star and Two Thumbs Upappliance repair

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!
C. Vilks

Very Professional

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!!

The Bachelor and His Refrigerator

bachelor freezerThe three-hour season finale of the “The Bachelor” was last night with two ladies remaining, vying for the indecisive heart of Venezuelan hunk, Juan Pablo Galavis. Which lady did you root for? Someday maybe he will marry and have his life change forever – and that includes his refrigerator.

A Bachelor’s Appliances Could Be As Lonely as He Is

Whether it’s a bachelor friend, a son or brother on his own, or a dude that rooms with other dudes – guys’ refrigerators can often be barren wastelands. Some are filled with only a plethora of condiments for all the take-out they consume; others boast beer, beer, and MORE beer; still others are filled with bottled water (to take on runs and work-outs) and half-eaten pizzas (to eat cold for breakfast). Oh, how we hope that Juan Pablo’s woman will fill his soul AND his refrigerator.

Use it Or Lose Itbachelor refrigerator

At Home-Tech, we know that if you’re living like a bachelor, you’re probably using your appliances sparingly. A single guy (or gal) might use the microwave often, but the stove doesn’t get the same kind of attention. Instead of giving it a rose and sending it on its way, it’s important to turn it on once or twice a month to keep it in running order. Same as your dishwasher; hopefully you’re recycling all those paper plates and red solo cups, but it’s necessary to keep your dishwasher healthy and lubricated by running it now and then.

Revving Things Up

Seasonal residents wonder why their appliances break down when they’re very sparingly using them (because they are hardly here). Not often using them can be a part of the problem. If you have friends or neighbors checking on your Florida home while you’re up north during the summer, it’s not a bad idea to have them rev up your appliances.

You Don’t Have to Go It Alone When You Have Home-Tech

We are here for you every day of the week if any of your appliances stand you up. Home-Tech considers refrigerator repair an emergency. We don’t want you to lose your fridge contents if it stops cooling. So give us a call for service. We won’t show up in a limo, but we will arrive as soon as possible to do your refrigerator repair.

Pleased with AC and Appliance Repair

attaboy_celebrate3There are certain of our customers who are only in SW Florida for a very short visit and during that time besides having fun and enjoying the beautiful weather, they have lots to get done taking care of their Florida properties. Home-Tech is the perfect company to handle air conditioning service, and appliance repair as well. The reviews below are about Kevin. If you have had service from a Home-Tech technician and would like to give a shout out you can do so on our Facebook page or review us on Google.

Service on Air Conditioning, Dryer & Dishwasher

He was friendly and efficient as was the other gentleman that serviced our dryer and dishwasher. Just wanted to say how pleased we are with your company.

You Have a Star with Kevin

On Friday we had a leak in an air conditioning pipe and Kevin was sent to our home to check it out.  In all my years working with different technicians I have never met a technician who is as knowledgeable, efficient, helpful, caring and sincere as Kevin.  Kevin fixed the problem in seconds. If all trade personal were as competent as Kevin then we would not have the problems we have today.  You have a star with Kevin, I hope if I have any other problems I get Kevin sent to our home to repair them.
Thank you,
M. Lieberman
