We contacted this company after reading they add for $29 duct cleaning for the entire house.

A "technician" and a trainee came to our house. The sold my roommate an extra service to clean the blower. They took the blower out and when they replace it smoke came out, most likely the connected it incorrectly and burned it.

They still charged $300 for their service (for the $29 cleaning). My roommate paid in good faith after he was reassured that the problem was going to be fixed in 1/2. It had been 12 days and we have no heat. Couple of technicians have come and gone and the only solution they provide us is to purchase a new system for $1,795 that according to them they are giving us a great deal.

Not only that but the customer service manager adamant that our system was up and running when the technician left the house. What it didn't register to her was the technician took our motor with them and disconnected all the wires (they were left hanging but live) make it completely impossible for our system to work with no motor. We are now forced to contact another company to come and fix this mess.

Their relationship to the company: Consumer Advocate



Rebuttal:

If all the information you gave here is correct it appears you may have been scammed. The "technician" may have even damaged your unit--I emphasize "may have."



Don't buy the new system from them. Get an estimate for a new system from another company and take these guys to small claims court. If I knew what state you were in I'd tell you how to go about it.



You and your roomate should write statements and take photos. I'm *very* suspicious of the *coincidental* breakdown of your system and I'm sure the judge will be too. Demand a new system from the company that ruined your old system. Be careful of telling other companies that come out for estimates what happened. Sometimes these guys stick together in some schemes.



Also, go to the local police department and speak to the Bunco squad (also known as financial crimes) and tell them you that believe this company is running a bunco scheme and may have intentionally damaged your systyem to sell you a new one.



Good Luck

The Fraud Chick
