Additional Notes

Complaint: As agreed with the sales rep from standard AC and heating they were to install a two stage higher end AC unit. Not only did they install the cheapest AC unit but they resorted to telling me that I got what I signed for. When I explained to the owner of the company that his sales rep had guaranteed me the two stage high end unit he stated that I should have known what I was signing for. I explained that I felt like they had taken advantage of me since the unit they installed was only worth $1,000 and they had charged me $3500. The owners answer was that they would not help me and if I wanted to get the unit I originally asked for then I would have to pay another $5,000-$6,000 . I had several conversations with the sales rep prior to the job getting done and the whole entire time they were trying to take advantage of me. We had also agreed to getting every thing new and had we not caught on to them they would have left all the old connections and just installed the new units. The whole experience was full of lies from the company all together and they should not be allowed to do business. I am sure I am not the only person that they have done this to.

Desired Settlement: I would like for the business to honor our initial agreement or take their product and give me a refund. I am not asking for any additional compensation other than what is owed to me. They need to be honest and stop taking advantage of people.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Old unit was a 3 ton, the replacement new unit was to be the same, engineer told men that the 30,000btu was 3 tons, but it was only 2 1/2 tons. After many complaints the unit was to be replaced with a 3 ton unit and a new evaporator coil. Document dated 7-24-2013 shows new equipment AC & Coil. Warranty shows same serial and model number for the coil which indicate that a new coil was not installed. These deceptive practices need to be addressed and stopped.

Desired Settlement: new coil as agreement shows and compensation for time stress, and frustration caused by this fraudulent practices. I probably not the only victim.
