Worried about the upkeep of your luxury home?  Do you know who to call if a major appliance like your air conditioning stops working?  Purchase a service agreement with Home-Tech, and these worries can be eliminated.  For more than 30 years, employee-owned Home-Tech has been an industry leader and trendsetter in the field of air conditioning and major appliance service, sales and installation.  With offices serving Sarasota, Manatee, Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties, Home-Tech has forged its reputation as the area’s largest provider of home-service agreements.

When you become a service agreement member, you get unlimited coverage for air conditioning and major appliance repairs—including parts and labor—all for one low, annual fee. Home-Tech’s service agreement also includes free replacements, discounts on future air conditioner and appliance purchases, and fast, responsive service by our continuously trained and certified technicians. A Home-Tech service agreement provides protection when you need it—and peace of mind when you don’t.

Rugs As Art

The current style keywords are silver metallics; bold black leathers; chunky fabrics in shades of grey.



This custom-shaped, multi-fiber rug beautifully accents the piano area, as illustrated by Gail Emmott, head of the custom design center at Rugs As Art. “It’s sophisticated with just the perfect touch of drama and sparkle,” she says. Multi-fiber rugs range from minimalistic to over-the-top dramatic. And at the Rugs As Art Design Center, Emmott and her staff will create the perfect rug to compliment your space. “Template freeform rugs are something that we specialize in,” Emmott adds. “Any size, any shape, any style.”
