What is the hourly rate for tech service calls?


Similar to my other post, how much is the going rate for a service call to have a tech come out to investigate a non working furnace please?

Thanks

Service rates is off topic for a DIY site. So this thread has been moved to the Off Topic Forum.

We're right in the same range as the other 2 guys. Only a half hour minimum though.

It'll cost 175 dollars for the first hour -
75 dollars for every hour, after that -
No material, included.

(I do wish I could have figured "travel fee"!)
