We at BAIR Necessities would like you to know that our service division has adopted a new method of pricing service work. This nationally recognized system was developed to make sure that you, our customer, could feel in control of a service call from beginning to end.
For many years, our industry has used the “Time and Material” method of pricing service work. When you called for repair service, we would inform you what the basic charge for coming to your house would be. Then would charge you a labor fee plus required materials. The problem with this method of pricing is that some customers are in the unfortunate position of paying more for a given task due partly in the technician experience level. The more experience, the less time it takes to correctly diagnose and repair. The lesser experienced, the more time it takes to correctly diagnose and repair. Thus training was on “your” time.
Now we have a new choice: Customer Assurance Pricing. This nationally recognized service-pricing system has accumulated data on the proper time and materials needed to complete tens of thousands of service repairs and tasks.
The good news is that this allows us to give you a firm price for the diagnosis of your system, which we call our “diagnostic fee.” Once we are certain of the immediate problem, we will give you and up-front price to repair.
Ultimately this will eliminate any surprises you could encounter when you receive the final bill. After all, it is just as discouraging for us as it is for you when the final repair bill exceeds the quoted amount by the technician. With Customer Assurance Pricing, you can be certain of the final repair bill every step of the way.
Thank you for being our customer
Preventative HVAC Maintenance,
Is A Smart Investment
A study by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers found that a large central air condition unit with a dirty coil costs an additional $618 for a single cooling season. And if the unit also has a clogged filter, energy costs go up by another $480. In other words, you are paying an extra $1098 in energy bills per season if your HVAC system is not properly maintained.
Your HVAC owner’s manual will recommend a service plan and frequency that is optimal for your HVAC system, but in general, you should have your system serviced at least twice a year—in the spring and fall.
Here are some common problems that we check for in our routine maintenance checks:
*Condenser Coils-they can become clogged by dust, dirt, pollen and other debris. Because of clogging, the condenser coil loses its ability to pull heat from your system. In turn, it causes the compressor to pull higher amps, causing a higher electric bill.
*Evaporator coils- they deliver conditioned air into your home/office. When dirty or clogged, they can block the flow of air. Each evaporator coil is designed for a specific volume of air to ensure adequate operation.
Moisture or dripping inside the house can be another symptom of a dirty evaporator coil.
*Filters-dirty filters can lead to a build-up of dirt and allergens, making the environment unsafe and unhealthy for you, your family & friends and your pets
In addition to the items listed above, cleaning your unit, fans & belts, lubrication of parts and valves, and checking operating pressures and temperatures are all part of our standard service plan.
For these reasons preventative HVAC maintenance is a smart investment
