If you are planning to replace your HVAC system or water heater, or you’re considering adding a home generator or water softener, Cornerstone Pros recommends you act now — before more price increases are passed on from manufacturers to local AC, electrical and plumbing companies.
“We just got notice of our fourth price increase of the year — an 8% jump coming Nov. 1, and we’re sure there will be another one at the first of the year,” said Dana Spears, president and owner of Cornerstone Pros in Land O’ Lakes. “We are advising homeowners to call and schedule an appointment now, so we can get your order processed and scheduled before another rate increase.”
To help homeowners budget for these expenses, Cornerstone offers deferred-interest loans for up to 18 months. “You will save a lot of money if you have these home improvements done now, before the upcoming price increases,” said Spears.
Like manufacturing companies everywhere, plants that make home mechanical equipment are faced with parts and labor shortages, which are resulting in higher prices on most everything, including air conditioning units, refrigerants, electrical panels, hot water heaters (traditional and tankless), home generators, and parts and material for all trades.
“We’re asking people to understand that these price increases are out of our control,” said Spears. “We are doing the best we can to hold our expenses, but price increases from our manufacturers have been so significant that they impact prices for our services.”
Cornerstone Pros always recommends regular maintenance and planning ahead when it comes to taking care of your home. This will save you money, and allow you to budget for future repairs.
The only thing worse than having you’re AC go out during the holidays when you have a houseful of guests, is not being able to get it repaired right away.
“We can help to prevent an emergency from happening at your home if you schedule a preventative maintenance checkup, which will allow us to catch a problem prior to the system failing on that hot summer day,” said Spears. “This is very affordable — we’re currently offering an AC System Maintenance Program that begins at just $9.95 a month for up to two AC units.”
For homes needing a replacement system, one of the most popular AC systems Cornerstone Pros offers is the Daikin Fit series, which is so quiet that it can be installed outside a bedroom window and not be heard inside.
“Our AC equipment product line has the best warranties in the industry, with a 12-year parts and labor warranty available for purchase. We also offer great financing terms and rebates, and work with local utility companies to qualify customers for additional rebates,” said Spears.
Generators and Surge Protectors
Cornerstone Pros offers permanent and portable home generators, and has deferred-interest financing. It installs Generac generators, the country’s largest manufacturer of backup generators, that run on natural gas or liquid propane, and automatically activate when there is a power outage.
“Choosing the right size generator is just as important as the quality of the generator. Our technicians do a full load calculation on every home we quote, and specify a generator that best meets a family’s needs and budget,” said Miguel Silva, plumbing manager for Cornerstone Pros.
The company also installs whole-home surge protection devices, which can prevent a power surge from damaging appliances and essential electronics if lightning strikes your home or nearby.
Cornerstone Pros is one of the area’s largest and most established trade contractors offering air conditioning, plumbing and electrical services. It is proud to employ over 95 local, qualified people who provide prompt service and exceptional customer service seven days a week.
