Heating System Repair or Maintenance

Hayward is very professional. He was punctual and gave me a heads up before he arrived. Hayward made sure to keep me in the loop with what he was doing. He explained the system to me and went above and beyond to make sure I was informed before making decisions. Hayward even went back under my house to take pictures for me. Furnace works again and I couldn’t be happier.

Background Check

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I generally charge a travel fee of $1.00 per mile. My diagnostic fee is normally $75.00. After the diagnosis, I will inform the customer of the problem and give them options for repair and the potential of the Preventive Maintenance Program (PM).

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I try to educate a new customer of what has been diagnosed what can be done to resolve the problem. It is possible that the new customer does not have a Preventive Maintenance Program (PM). Otherwise, they would have contacted their Contracting company and not me. It's important that the customer knows the value of PM work because it will lengthen the life of HVAC unit, save them money on unexpected repairs, and spare them the discomfort being too cold or too warm.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Before receiving any training I did not know how to read a tape measure. I received my inital training in the HVACR work as a full-time volunteer in Brooklyn, New York, working 44 hours a week for 17 enjoyable years. Rooming and boarding, along with medical, dental, and other necessary care were provided, so making money was not my objective at all. It was helping a cause that I dearly valued down to this day. Eventually, I became a lead HVAC Technician in a one million square feet commercial building and a host of residential apartment complexes. I specialized in preventive maintenance and even joined a group of more experience men and women in writing up PM procedures for HVACR systems that included water chillers, water coolers, air handlers, package units, supply fans, exhaust fans, dust collection systems, boilers, hydronic systems, and things like these. I still volunteer my HVAC services to the same organization, but locally in the Bay Area either as a trainer, repair technician, and consultant. Upon leaving Brooklyn, I started a family and began secular employment at the the University of California Berkeley in the HVAC Shop. I have been sent to specialty classes to meet the demands of the position, such as York centrifugal and absorption chillers, Trane absorption chillers, Mitsubishi City Multi units and the campus' control systems. My training did not end with departure from UC Berkeley. I continue to go to classes that offered VFD controls and Automated Logic Controls.
