I have never understood why tradespeople charge extra currency for emergency services.
Recently, I had an HVAC specialist apply a $100 fee for helping myself and others out in the middle of an emergency, which I guess is completely deranged & unethical.
Whenever you call an HVAC company while both of us were in the middle of the night because your gas furnace stopped working, that is a easily serious problem, and you are entirely going to be forking over hundreds to thoUnited Statesnds of dollars. That seems like a disappointing time for an HVAC company to decide that they should get extra currency for the inconvenience. I could understand why they might have an emergency fee for HVAC workers. Imagine if somebody with a minor problem, like a malfunctioning air conditioning, insists that they are helped at midnight. Imagine if they wanted an inspection while both of us were in a holiday? In cases like those, I could see how an emergency fee might apply. I might even understand the situation if your gas furnace broke down on Christmas, causing the HVAC worker to have to service your gas furnace instead of spending time their family! But in cases like those, both of us could just be wonderful human beings & tip the HVAC worker to make up for it! But to charge somebody extra for a gas furnace emergency because you showed up a morning early seems a little rude. Imagine if a medical professional charged people extra currency for helping them while both of us were in an emergency! I guess HVAC companies should rethink their prices, & I am sure that their buyers will be easily thankful. It might even increase company to the point that they make up for the loss.
