Normally it's a $90.00 fee. I give retired people a break on service calls. If no material, I charge $25.00 and tell them it's their lucky day, I am running a special. There is something about being on a fixed income and living on Long Island that affects my brain. Guess I have heard too many horror stories of elderly people getting ripped off by scumbags who see an easy mark.
Was it an insect or a rodent that shorted the relay?
