Very cool ... I am in the Sonoran Sea one that the HOA offered this year $99 bucks for 3 check-up a year. But next time I will definitely check these guys out.

Contact them they have several prices based on what youneed and the size of your unit. They also installed an energy saving unit thatturns the heater or air conditioner off if a door is left open.

well the unit seems fine from what I get but its the line from the roof to the condo that must have a leak .. they need to replace... they offered to fill it so we could run it but it would leak and probably have to be refilled again in 2 days or less ... (very bad for environment IMHO so we said no we will wait for it to be fixed) :)

I would love to get a tankless water heater some time soon as well think mine is the original still from when the Sea was built .. but need to squeeze in some more hours and OT at work prior to that adventure :)

oh and we are not in the mac daddy end units or the deluxe 3bdrms .. we are in our happy place of a simple 1 bdrm so hopefully that curtails the pricing curve ... but thanks for the info we will definitely be checking it out ... being noobs its good to get the info and the best options available so thanks!

I've subscribed to Kelpinc's maintenance plan for the past few years out at the beach in Encanto. Get 4 check ups a year. The service tech Nic is very knowledgeable and competent. I honestly think the service has prolonged my 10 year old units given the exposure to the salt that seems to destroy anything metal. I think the cost is just below or just above $400. They have less expensive plans as well.
