Any payment not received within 30 days from completion of work is subject to interest at the highest amount lawfully allowed by contract in the state in which the work was performed until paid. If applicable, sales tax is included in the price. If Customer contends that any invoice is incorrect, Customer must so notify Seller within seven (7) days after receipt of the invoice. If Customer does not so notify Seller, (1) Customer forever waives the right to dispute the accuracy of the invoice and (2) Seller’s rights in and to payment shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be subject to any abatement, reduction, set-off, defense, counterclaim or recoupment for any reason, including, without limitation, any past, present or future claims which Customer may have against Seller.

Any and all disputes arising out of this sale shall be interpreted under the laws on the state in which the work was performed.
PURCHASE MONEY SECURITY INTEREST IN CONSUMER GOODS: In order to secure the payment of the purchase price for the fixtures, personal property, equipment, goods and services provided by Seller to Customer, together with all additions and accessions thereto and substitutions and replacements for and products and proceeds of any of the foregoing property (collectively, the “Collateral”), Customer hereby grants to Seller a security interest (the “Security Interest”) in and to the Collateral. Customer agrees that the Security Interest is automatically perfected under state law and also authorizes Seller to file a financing statement in accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code in connection with the Collateral. Customer represents that the Collateral is used or being bought primarily for personal and household use and constitutes consumer goods. Customer acknowledges that the Security Interest is a purchase money security interest. If Customer fails to timely pay Seller, Customer consents and acknowledges that Seller may exercise, in addition to the rights and remedies contained herein, all rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code or any other applicable law.
CHANGES TO THE WORK: If any governmental authority or Customer shall request, require or make necessary any changes to the fixtures, personal property, equipment, goods and services provided by Seller as originally installed, Customer agrees to pay for such changes and immediately notify Seller of such changes. All such changes, of any kind, shall be subject to the security interest granted herein by Customer to Seller. Customer also agrees to obtain and pay any city, state or federal taxes, fees or permit charges now in force or hereinafter relating to the fixtures, personal property, equipment, goods and services provided by Seller.
WARRANTIES, AND LIMITATIONS ON WARRANTIES: Seller warrants that all work performed and all parts and equipment which were installed in the servicing of the heating and air conditioning unit(s) were completed in a workmanlike manner and that said work shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 365 days from date said work was performed or manufacturer’s warranties, whichever is longer. Seller’s obligation for defective products and or workmanship or any damage caused thereby, and Customer’s exclusive remedy, shall be limited, at Seller’s option, to the replacement of any defective parts or workmanship or the refund of amounts paid by Customer for said service and shall be conditioned upon Seller receiving actual written notice of said defect within the 365 day period noted herein.
THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES (EXCEPT OF TITLE) FROM SELLER INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SELLER SHALL NOT BE SUBJECT TO AND DISCLAIMS (1) ANY OTHER OBLIGATION OR LIABILITIES ARISING OUT OF BREACH OF CONTRACT OR OF WARRANTY: (2) ANY OBLIGATIONS WHATSOEVER ARISING FROM TORT CLAIMS INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY OR ARISING UNDER THEORIES OF LAW WITH RESPECT TO PRODUCTS SOLD OR SERVICES RENDERED BY SELLER OR ANY UNDERTAKINGS, ACTS OR OMISSIONS RELATED THERETO; AND (3) ALL CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL AND CONTINGENT DAMAGES WHATSOEVER.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: Since it is impractical and extremely difficult to fix actual damages which may arise due to the faulty operation of the fixtures, personal property, equipment, goods and services provided by Seller, if, notwithstanding the above provisions, there should arise any liability on the part of Seller, such liability shall be limited to $250.00. This sum shall be complete and exclusive and shall be paid and received as liquidated damages and not as a penalty.
