Service Pricing

Service Pricing

Servicing or repairing your furnace or air conditioner should be pleasant and
straightforward. With Watkins, here's how it works:

Call our office. Our friendly staff can quickly schedule an appointment with a professional technician.
We give exact appointment windows (30 min. in the morning, 60 min. in the afternoon) so you don't have to wait all day. We can even call ahead when your technician is driving to your home.
When your technician arrives, he will carefully diagnose the problem, explain the needed repair or service, and quote the price before starting any work.
We don't charge by the hour. Your technician will take the time to ensure that the repair is done right. We stand behind all of our repairs with a two-year warranty.

After-Hours Service

Starting 09/27/10, our expanded regular service hours are 8am to 7pm Mon-Fri. If you call after hours, rest assured that we always have service technicians available, day and night, weekends and holidays.
Our overtime charge is just an extra $40 Mon-Sat and $80 on Sundays & Holidays, and the repairs are still billed at regular rates. (Our diagnostic fee still applies)

No one likes paying more than they should, so we did our research here. Some companies offer after-hours service for no extra charge, but their regular rates are higher than our overtime rates. They actually charge overtime rates during regular hours!

We use fair overtime pricing that simply reflects the extra costs of compensating a technician for working late on a cold night or holiday.
