Dear Valued Customer,

Handyman Connection of Mountain View is committed to providing the highest quality services to our customers. We know that our customers have a choice, and we are grateful for your continued partnership.

For the past several years, Handyman Connection of Mountain View has been absorbing processing and transaction fees related to payments made by credit card. Unfortunately, our costs for credit card acceptance have continued to rise. Credit card rates have continued to skyrocket over the last few years, and more and more credit cards are run with the card not present (phone transactions, etc.). “Card not present” transactions also increase the rate we are charged. The use of credit cards to pay bills has also increased significantly.

Effective April 1, 2023, we will begin adding a 3% convenience fee for all credit card payments. The fee with be added to payments made with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover to offset the fees charged by the card companies. In accordance with credit card network rules, Handyman Connection of Mountain View cannot profit from this fee, and it does not exceed our expenses associated with accepting credit card payments.

Payments made by check, electronic payment (ACH/EFT), wire, or debit card will not be charged the convenience fee.

We thank you for your understanding as we implement this fee and offset some of the increased inflationary costs we are all incurring. We are happy to work with you on alternate payment options.

Energy-Saving Tips For Fewer Expenses And Maximum Comfort

While we all look forward to and enjoy the mild weather that fall brings, high energy bills necessary to maintain your home’s comfort are not welcome. Whether you are using your HVAC units more often or taking long showers, you understand how troublesome it is to keep your home comfortable when it’s warm outside. Handyman Connection of Mountain View shares some energy-saving tips that can help you:

Maximize Your Windows’ Use

If you’re fortunate enough to live in a location that cools off at night, you can turn off your AC unit when sleeping and open your windows instead. This can help you significantly lower your energy bills. In addition, when you shut the windows and blinds when you wake up, the cool air stays in, keeping your interior comfortable for some time. If you plan to open your windows during the daytime, it pays to invest in window coverings that prevent heat gain. This way, you can let natural air in but keep the excess heat and humidity out.

Avoid Excess Heat Sources

On extremely hot days, be sure to minimize activities that add heat. These include cooking using your oven and stove, running a computer, and using hot devices like hair dryers. Even televisions and stereos add heat, so avoid using them for long periods of time. Some artificial lights generate heat over time, so we recommend taking advantage of daylight. Just be sure to have the proper window treatments that will help you avoid direct sunlight.

Keep Hot Air Out

Perform a general inspection of your home, focusing on doors, windows, and walls. Look for any cracks or openings that can let hot air into your home and allow the cool air out. If there are any air leaks around your doors and window, seal them off with caulk or weatherstripping. You can also check your roof for any signs of damage that can invite excessive amounts of sunlight in your home.
