Services…

…and Unservices

Equipment Repair

I repair furnaces and air conditioners in owner-occupied homes. That is currently all I do. It’s an underserved niche that I’m very good at. Even so, as explained in this audio, I’ll certainly recommend replacing when it makes sense to do so.

Checkups

They’re referred to as tune-ups or maintenance. As explained here, “checkup” is the best word for them. I perform checkups only during the slow season, which ended with the first heat of May. The next slow season starts some time in fall.

Installations

I’m currently a repair-only contractor. Repairs require more brain and less brawn than installations, hence the preference. I may do installations again when my brother comes to work for me. In the mean time, there is another contractor whom I’ll refer upon request.
