Letters From Our Readers: April 30, 2012

April 30, 2012
Editor’s Note: The following remark was made on The NEWS’ group, The NEWS Network, on LinkedIn, concerning Joanna Turpin’s article “Going Against the $29 Tune-Up,” April 2, 2012.

Too Good to Be True

This was a great article I just read in the April 2 edition of The NEWS. I always believed that if the price is that low, it’s too good to be true. I know for $29, the service tech is going to find something they need to fix or replace for more money.

I run a summer warm-up for $85, which is reasonable for the area I am in. I also let my customers know why it is $85 and not $29.

Editor’s Note: The following remark was made on LinkedIn about how to motivate more young people to go into HVACR.

Not on People’s Radar ScreenUntil There's a Problem

I think this is an extremely important topic that is never discussed in my area. In fact, our local school districts have nearly eliminated all of their vocational programs. HVAC is not a concern for most people until their unit at home does not function properly. The majority of contractors I meet express similar concerns.
