Home-Tech Wants to See You in a Hammock

hammockdayThis summer, Home-Tech has been celebrating the good things in life that make these long, hot days not just bearable – but, downright enjoyable. Whether it’s iced tea, homemade ice cream, the comfy cool of air conditioning, or the Fourth of July, we’ve been applauding it. So, how fabulous is it that this week, we get to observe National Hammock Day?

Heavenly Hammocks

Of course, there’s plenty of expensive, fancy, designer outdoor furniture to choose from – and there are lots of folks that spend more on their outdoor living area than their indoor one – and that’s just fine. But, it’s hard to think of a more relaxing way to spend an afternoon than lying in a good old-fashioned hammock in the shade. Mind you, actually getting into a hammock can be a struggle and unless you’ve perfected the art, it’s not exactly graceful. Sitting in the middle and then swinging your legs in tends to be an issue of balance and not all of us have that. Running and jumping in is never a wise idea — unless, perhaps, you’re under the age of 10 or you’re wearing a helmet and knee pads. In the end, practice makes perfect and mastering the art of relaxing doesn’t sound like a bad way to pass the time. Finally, once you get into your comfy hammock and you’re blissfully swaying in a gentle breeze with a good book, the LAST thing you want on your mind is a broken appliance or worse in the heat, a broken air conditioner. That’s why we recommend a Service Agreement with Home-Tech.

Relaxation, not Agitationservice agreements gold

A Service Agreement is all about your peace of mind, as we’d much rather see you napping in a hammock than fretting about a refrigerator on the fritz or an air conditioner not doing its job. Our Gold Service Agreement means one of each of all major appliances and your air conditioning system are covered through the year, plus all service calls are unlimited and free – even on weekends and holidays. Our Silver Service Agreement features many of the same advantages, such as an annual air-conditioning clean and check, plus complete parts and labor coverage, and you pay only a minimal service call fee.

Appliance Repair – Girls Don’t Wanna Worry

Best Thing I Did – Get a Home-Tech Service Agreement

appliance repair attaboyShould I get a Service Agreement? What is the service like? Is it worth looking into?  Home-Tech answers these questions every day for our potential customers. Sometimes though it’s best to hear it from our actual Service Agreement Members.  Our blog is full of Attaboy testimonials where our customers are talking about how pleased they are with our service and that they made the investment in the Service Agreement.  Today’s testimonials are all about Shaun.  If you’d like to share a review with us, please do so on our Facebook page or review us on Google.

 Friendly, Helpful, On Time

We have wanted to write before, but with company visiting we have not had a chance.

We have unfortunately needed to use your services recently quite a bit. Fortunately the service techs have been great. Friendly, helpful and on time. The man who repaired our furnace answered some of my questions about the Fort Myers area and even recommended a book to read about it! Shaun has been here twice, once for our refrigerator and this time for the microwave and has been very professional and knowledgeable.

We certainly appreciate the calls telling us they are on the way and even the apology we received when one man’s GPS sent him in the wrong direction, but he called to let us know. In a time when it seems companies don’t care about the consumer it is nice to have one that does. Now if only you could talk to Comcast they could take a few tips from your practices.

Happy with the ServiceService Agreement Technicians

We had services this morning from Shaun and Pedro to look at our microwave.  They provided the usual prompt and courteous service. We were happy with their service and we are glad to have this service available to us. Thanks!

Job’s Well Done

Your guys Shaun and Jason replaced my broken AC thermostat. While here I asked them to listen too the fan on my Whirlpool refrigerator which I purchased from you last April. They agreed that it was too noisy, made some adjustments around the fan and the noise was lowered down to normal. Jobs well done.

firstcall-nochargeI Purchased Your Service Agreement

I’d like to compliment your two service representatives Shawn and Tony.  They were both very professional and fixed my problem quickly and I enjoyed having them in  my home. After completing their work they explained your service agreement and were very thorough and well informed. Because I was so impressed by the work and attitude of both young men, I decided to purchase your service agreement.

Best Thing I Did – Service Agreement

I couldn’t be happier with your service. Shaun just left. He was courteous, efficient, polite & solved our problem in minutes. I called for service this morning & then called again, deciding I couldn’t wait until our scheduled appointment on Monday. Shaun arrived Friday evening around 7:00.

Thank you- the best thing I did was get your service agreement.

Keep up the good work- we are impressed!!!!

Favorably Represents the Company

Attaboy to Shaun! Shaun replaced my garbage disposal today. He is a very professional and courteous young man. He showed his expertise by quickly evaluating our problem and replacing the disposal. He worked very quickly and neatly. Shaun is truly an asset to Home-Tech, and favorably represents the company!

Very ThoughtfulAppliance Service Tech

Shaun  came out to our house with regard to the water filter replacement in our Samsung refrigerator. This was due to contradictory information provided by the Samsung manual and the instructions with the filter replacement itself. Because of the discrepancy, we sought out the advice of Home-Tech. When Shaun arrived, we explained the situation and he immediately provided us with the answers necessary to change the filter and then proceeded to do so. He also explained a few other things to us about the filter and its replacement time and function. He was prompt, courteous and very knowledgeable. He was the first technician to remove his shoes prior to entering out home. We found that to be very thoughtful. Immediately after completing the work and leaving our home he returned to remind us that there may be residual air in the water line and it would take a short while for that to clear. He was absolutely right. We continue to be very pleased with the level of attention we receive from Home-Tech as service contract holders.

Extremely Pleased with Your Service

I am writing in response to our service today. Shaun has been to our home before on other calls and  feel very confident in his assessment of situations and also provides direction on other issues (back flow issues, etc).  We are extremely pleased with your service and the staff you send out.  So much that I referred my in-laws to you and they recently renewed their agreement.

Thank you,

Solved the Appliance Repair

I just wanted to let you know of the excellent service performed by Shaun on or dishwasher today.  He solved the problem and placed a larger clamp on the water hose to prevent the problem from happening again.
Shaun was very professional and courteous – you have a very valuable employee!

Shaun was the tech who came today. He was prompt, polite, professional, and clean. He fixed the problem, he’s a good guy.

Not Rattled by Appliance Repair

What a relief to have Shaun so efficiently and quickly fix the broken part on my washing machine.  He is a very pleasant young man who didn’t even seem rattled to be arriving at our house after quitting time!!

Excellent Experience

I just wanted to send a quick email to say that the technician who came out to do our Air conditioning service and install a safety float switch was extremely professional, helpful, and friendly.  He did a great job and was very thorough.  Our experience with Home-Tech, since signing up for a service agreement, has been excellent: one of the best decisions we have made as home-owners.

Thank you!

Pleasure Doing Business

Matt left me the AttaBoy card and asked me to take a few seconds to email you about our satisfaction with his work on the AC system and the heating system.
It was a pleasure to do business with Matt.  He explained to me thoroughly what he was doing and we discussed the length of time left for the AC system–3 or 4 years–which is good news.  He showed me how to change the filter on the AC unit and told me how frequently that should be done. He told me what to expect with the aging hot water heater…signs that indicate trouble…like leaking water. He was very courteous –shook my hand, told me his name, made eye contact throughout.  Matt’s a very poised young man.
S. Ennis

Answered All Questions

Matt came today to service our air conditioner/furnace as part of our service contract.  He was very nice and helpful.  He answered all questions and was very patient and respectful.  He was very good at explaining what he did and documented everything. He represented the company well.

Feeling of Security

This is just a quick note to let you know how impressed I was with the air conditioning technician, James, who serviced my air conditioning for its yearly inspection this a.m.  James was a very cordial, upbeat individual who did his checking and followed through with all details in connection with my A/C inspection. He found one problem which he readily fixed giving me the feeling of security with my A/C performance.  It was a pleasure having him do my inspection and seeing how knowledgeable and courteous he was with my questions.You should be proud of this employee as he helps make your company what it is – a worthwhile A/C company with great service.  Each and every time I have had to contact Home-Tech I have had great response time and very accommodating individuals to follow-up with my service.

Air Conditioning Repair Worth Every Penny

Appliance Service TechWhat do Home-Tech customers think about the value of our air conditioning repair service or appliance repairs or having a Service Agreement?  Inquiring minds must know.  We hear from customers every day and love sharing their opinions.  If you would like to tell us about the value of your Service Agreement visit our Facebook page or review us on Google.

Dear Home-Tech -

You guys are worth every penny.  You always come quickly and kindly, but Shaun wins the prize.  My air-conditioning didn’t seem to be working when we returned home from a 3 week trip.  I called you to ask for help.  While I was on my cellphone talking to Comcast because my phone wasn’t working either, Shaun called to say he was on his way.  I couldn’t switch over fast enough and I missed his call.  Then it seemed like the air-conditioner was working so I called you back to tell you that.  A few minutes later, Shaun was at the door.  He said, “I was right near here so I stopped to see if things were okay.”  And they weren’t!! So he saved the day and fixed it!  We were able to sleep in comfort.  What a guy! Thank you.

Recommends Service AgreementService Invoice with No Charge

I arrived home last Thursday at 4:00 p.m. to find out I had no air-conditioning.  I called for a service call and was told that a service person would be out by 6:00 p.m. and would call when he was on the way.  Shaun called and said he was on his way. Shaun was very courteous, polite and knowledgeable.  He fixed the problem and it was before 6:00 p.m. which I greatly appreciated as it was very hot in my home.  To have service that quickly when you are so busy with other air-conditioning problems was appreciated so very much.

Every time, someone from your company has been to my home, they are prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. I have told several friends about Home-Tech and they need to inquire about a service plan. Again, thanks so very much.

Committed to Service and Hard Work

air conditioning guages 1I simply wanted to pass along our deepest appreciation for the committed effort of Matt and his colleague Tim.   After being without A/C for 3 days (in September….in Florida), and after valiant effort of their colleagues (Brian on Saturday and Robert on Sunday), Matt and Tim showed up to finally provide our family some comfort.  Armed with not just the appropriate parts and the appropriate knowledge, but also with the appropriate sense of commitment and compassion, Matt and Tim dedicated the majority of their Monday evening to provide cooler air for my wife and our 4 year old son.  We can’t express our genuine and sincere appreciation deeply enough….to both Matt and Tim.   I surely hope the leadership of Home-Tech recognizes and appreciates the assets (in these two young men) with which they are fortunate enough to be blessed.  In our current day and age (and culture), it is refreshing to find individuals so committed to service and to hard work.   Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
M. Mathias, Naples, FL

We Get Our Money’s Worth

Home-Tech never fails to disappoint us! Always on time, always there when we need them, one of the few services we feel that we get our money’s worth from.  Joe did our yearly service on our air-conditioning today.  Could not have been nicer, more efficient and a complete professional.  I’m happy to give him this “Attaboy” comment. Thanks again!

air conditioning repair ShawnToday’s customer testimonials are all about air conditioning repairs.  Shawn, Shaun and Brian came to the rescue.  Home-Tech is here for you when your air conditioning is not cooling, overheats, makes funny noises, leaks or has any other kind of problems.  If Home-Tech has solved an air conditioning problem for you and you’d like to share about your experience we’d love to hear about it on our Facebook page.

Easy to Work With

We returned from a 10 day trip and discovered that our air conditioning unit was not working.  We left it at 80 degrees and the humidistat at 50 when we left.  Called the service # and were pleased that Shawn was on island and would stop in.  I believe that he said that the unit had overheated and after checking everything he hosed it down to cool it off.  It did restart and we cooled enough to sleep that night.

This is the second trip that we have returned with the air conditioning not responding to our cooling zone.  The first time it did very slowly start but we weren’t gone as long.  The unit was working fine.  Shawn was polite and listened to our complaints.  He has been to our house before and is easy to work with.

R. Woodham

Couldn’t Be Happier

Shawn answered my call about my leaking air conditioner in ONE HOUR!  He was very polite and competent.  The unit was frozen and he checked outside and found a faulty switch which he repaired.  I had previously scheduled the annual AC check up and he gave me a few items for that technician to check.

Couldn’t be happier with the service I have received at Home-Tech and recommend you to everyone!! Thank you.

R. Howard

Appliance Service TechVery Knowledgeable

We placed a call to Home-Tech last evening.  They scheduled someone to check our air conditioning which was not cooling for today.  Shaun came to us, and checked several things on our air unit.  It seems there was not anything he could find.  When we turned it back on it seemed to work.  He told us that his happens from time to time.  Shaun seemed to be very knowledgeable about our unit.

We discussed with him buying a Home-Tech contract.  We had one for years when we lived here before.  He came in and checked our appliances, etc. and we bought the contract from him.

Shaun did a great job, we extremely courteous and knew what he was doing.  We hope if we need Home-Tech again that Shaun comes with the call.

We had the occasion for an air conditioning repair on our air conditioner because of an unusual noise when it was running on stage 1.  Brian arrived as promised, introduced himself and went about his business in a professional, businesslike manner.  He corrected the problem and left assuring us that they would be there for us if any future service was required.  The company should be commended on the quality of the personnel working for you.
