Complaint: I hired Frio Air Conditioning & Refrigeration owned by **** ***** to install a new central air and heat unit in my apartment. We went over all supplies that he will provide and I asked him if the size of the unit that he was offering me was the correct size for the apartment and according to him YES. He installed it 6/27/2014 all done the same day. I notice there was a little noise inside the inside unit according to him it was made by one air filter. He suggested to install two air filters instead of one but he was not sure if that would solve the problem." At the time he only had one filter". He offered to bring it on Monday "the other filter". Then He agreed to come back the next couple of days to make sure the A/C was working fine. When I purchase the the A/C through them they offered 10 YRS parts and 5 years labor. I questioned to him if by any chance there was anything wrong the unit he would be able to take care of the problem right a way and he answered yes. The Unit was installed on a Saturday..... it took 16 hrs for the a/c to cool the apartment I was a concern to me and I text him he text me back telling me that it was normal and that he would come the next day to install another air return . Monday came and no show . NEVER SHOWED UP. No call no txs. I text him on Wednesday July 2nd and called him to let him know I still can hear the noise inside the unit and another problem My room was not getting enough air it is too hot to sleep at night. No response. finally he answered late that afternoon and said he couldn't make it he was out of town.. I wait to hear from him all week in the mean while me and my roommate are sleeping in the leaving room because there is not enough cool air in my room. Tuesday July 8th i get a text saying he will not make it again after he had mentioned to me over the phone he will but he had bought the air filters and return grill to be isntalled and that he will also will check the air ducks when he gets to the house. Wednesday july 9th I text him again and asked him if he was coming and he told me NO he was in another job site that he was sorry. Meanwhile we can't sleep at night. Saturday July 12th another miserable night notice the inside unit was frozen and getting really hot inside the apartment. I text him and left him a voice mail and I got a call from him later in the afternoon telling me that he thought it was strange I even sent him a picture of the copper being frozen. he said he will stop monday morning. between 7 and 8 I said ok. at 9:28 I sent him a text asking him how much longer I had to wait he text back at 10:47 AM telling me that he was stuck at jason deli with a freezer issue. Now how much longer I have to wait for this company to come and look at my new unit. I am very concern with them being a small company and not keeping up with their good customer service. I am very frustrated and I have been inconvenience by them. They have been paid in full and I have not own the unit a day and it was already having problems at this time at don't know if he sold me the wrong size of unit and that is the reason why the thermostat can not keep up with desired temperature. This unit is just going and going is not cooling the apartment completely
Desired Settlement: I would like for him to replace the unit or make the unit work at its best.... Right now its over working. I would like for them to honor the warranty he offered
