If I had just a single piece of advice to pass on, it would be this: never sign anything without reading the fine print. I have been burned on several occasions on a deal or contract that seemed to be alright, only to realize later there were landmines buried in the fine print. I didn’t notice them in the first place, plus they blew up in my face at a later time! It makes no difference what kind of document you have, treat them all the same way even if it is something that seems especially simple. If something seems fishy at all, then it probably is! Last year when I got my current Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment, I signed a contract for a 2 year service agreement that would cover inspections plus normal repairs for the equipment. I did not read the detailed print, where it stated what they considered “normal” repairs on Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment. Basically for them, normal means replacing air filters plus changing the batteries in the temperature control equipment, plus that is pretty much all… They indeed inspect the entire Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment from top to bottom, including the wires plus the system of ducts, no complaints there! Once they have listed the complications with the heating plus cooling equipment, then they provide supply me with a price list for how much it will all cost. I was in too much of a hurry to get my AC installed, so I just signed the contract without reading it completely. It turns out that normal to a Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C supplier is radically different from what normal is to most people. Thankfully since my AC is undoubtedly current there won’t be all that many complications.
