Complaint: We purchased our Carrier furnace & A/C in December 2012. Since that time, we have made multiple attempts to get the product repaired. My husband called in early May 2013 to get the A/C charged. We were scheduled to have technicians out on May 16th between 11-2. They came. I called on May 22nd in the afternoon complaining that the A/C was still blowing warm air on the 1st floor & that no air was blowing on the 2nd floor. We have to have the ceiling fans turned on both floors of our house (1st & 2nd floors) to help ease the hot air in our home because the A/C was not functioning. We even had to move both of our chidlren's cribs in our 1st floor living room because it was too hot upstairs for them to sleep comfortably. The secretary scheduled for technicians to come to our residence on June 4th between 11-2. I told her that I was extremely upset with owner *** Reynolds because when he came to our residence in December to sell the furnance & A/C, he stressed that he grew up in Mentor and was well acquainted with the homes in the area & promised that our issue of not getting warm or cold air in the room over the garage would no longer be an issue and that we would get warm & cold air upstairs if we went with his product. He had us sold. On 5/16, the technicians walked the basement and changed the dampers to be on for summer use & recommended that we retape all of our ducts. My husband retaped all of the ducts that weekend. The A/C was still blowing warm air in our home and the upstairs was still hot. I called on June 28th & left a message.Technician came to our house on July 2nd at 4:45 pm. He walked the house and told me that that his home is 72 and that he has trees over his house & that every house is different. He said the house was fine and left. I called & said that *** had to come over. He was scheduled to come July 3rd & cancelled at 2:42 pm that day. He came on July 5th at 11. He admits that air isn't blowing cold air and would send technicians. The technicians were scheduled to come on 7/16
Desired Settlement: Scheduled to come between 2-4 and came after 5. They found thermostat is reading the temp. wrong. Temp. is 2.5 degrees higher than actual reading states. They found damper wasn't closed to the house from where the old A/C was connected. The technicians during installation never closed it. My husband called the office on 7/18 at 9:30 am 7/30 at 4:45 was told by sec. they are busy with other jobs & we would have to wait. We want newA/C & furnance to run 100%, replace thermostat Next appt is 8/12
My name is ***** ********** and on July 31, 2013, I wrote a complaint against Bill Reynolds Heating and Air Conditioning. I understand that this company was contacted and that I can expect to hear news up to 4 weeks from the time I had filed. It presently has surpassed the 4 week time frame and I have yet to hear from Mr. Reynolds.
The reason why I am contacting you today is because our furnace was not working last night, September 14, 2013 and is not working today. My husband called Bill Reynolds Heating and Air Conditioning at this morning, September 15, 2013. The answering service had a technician call us back. The technician, ******* *****, called back and said that he would be here in 2 hours because he has other customers ahead of us. He was supposed to be here at . At , my husband called again and the answering service left the message with the technician. Mr. ***** called back and said that he still is finishing up other customers and asked if we would want to reschedule for service . My husband explained that we have to have heat. We have 2 toddlers and that they need to be warm. Mr. ***** said that he would come as soon as he can. It is presently and still no technician has come after the last contact with him 2 hours ago. I wanted to add this to my complaint because the furnace is still not working and we are not getting service. We've been waiting all day for the technician. As a courtesy, he should call and say that he would be late because he initially told us that he would be here in 2 hours.
Thank you for your time,
Response to complaint ID *******
By: ****** Reynolds
Bill Reynolds Heating Installed a complete system for the **********s in December of 2012. They were given a tremendous discount for their system.
They had no problems until they tried to use their Air Conditioning in May of 2013.
We went out several times trying to rectify the problems. Mrs. ********** stated at first that their was a problem with cooling to the upstairs and that they had had the same problem with their old system, and upset because they were told the system we put in would correct that.
After at least 4 trips out, trying to air balance, adjust blower speeds, etc., we discovered
that one of there air ducts on the system was actually a fresh intake air duct, which was
drawing warm air and humidity in, and causing the problem. It was in no way apparent that the duct was a fresh air intake; it looked just like all the other supply ducts.
We sealed this closed and the problem was resolved.
We feel we did everything we could to resolve the issue, and always responded promptly each time the customer called. The install was done correctly, and we could not have foreseen the problem, but did do all we could as quickly as we could to resolve it.
If only the **********s had known about this fresh air intake duct, the problem would not have occurred from the start. No wonder they had such a problem with their last system.
********** Complaint Part 2
September 30, 2013
We received a call on Sunday, 9/15/13 for no heat at the **********’s house.
The tech told Mrs. ********** that he would be out that day, and call when
he was on the way. He did have other calls that took longer than usual, and ended up
not getting there until around 5pm. He did call at around 2 pm letting them know he would still be out that day. The tech also knew that if a part was needed he would not be able to get a part until Monday when the parts store opened. Since it ended up being 63 degrees that day, the tech did not assess it to be “emergency” status.
He should have kept the **********’s informed of the time delay. We did reprimand him, and will ensure that this will not happen again in the future.
I apologized to the **********’s that Sunday, and let them know they were top priority, and that I would personally make sure to re-arrange the schedule so that I could get them on the schedule first thing Monday morning once we were able to obtain the part they needed.
I did find the part Monday morning, and we were able to replace it first call. Mr. ********** did understand, and appreciated the prompt repair. He was very understanding. I was very surprised that after this, I received the complaint from Mrs. **********. We do try very hard to satisfy all our customers, and feel we did all we could in this case, aside from the tech not keeping the customer informed on when he would be arriving.

Complaint: I contacted Bill Reynold's Heating & Air Conditioning to repair my Lennox air conditioner unit that stopped working on Sunday 06/23/13. On Monday 06/24, ****, a technician with the company found that a small animal had gained access to the electrical casing and chewed through wiring. The unit needed to replace the capacitor and the connector along with re-wiring. It was unknown if the compressor was shorted out until the other parts were replaced. **** stated that I needed to contact a different company to do the work because they don't stock Lennox parts. He did not replace anything or attempt to re-wire anything. I was charged a full service charge to be told to call someone else. If it is Bill Reynold's policy not to service Lennox units, I should have been told that while on the phone scheduling the appointment, not after coming to my home and charging me a service charge to not perform any work. The new company came out and replaced the capacitor and connector with UNIVERSAL parts. They did not need to be Lennox brand or be special ordered as **** stated.
Desired Settlement: I would like to be refunded the amount of the service charge ($79).
Regarding this complaint, the attached order is exactly what the technician **** stated to customer. We never
Told the customer to call another company, or that we could not do the repair, as seen on the service order.
We did lapse a little in timing of locating the part and calling customer with a price. We have been overwhelmingly busy with no ac calls
And Lennox parts always differ from other mfg. parts, as in this case it required a 3 pole contactor which is very rare.
The other company had the advantage of knowing that the problem was a contactor, and the brand was Lennox. He was able to
come prepared with a part and complete the repair.
I called and left a message with Mr. ******* with these facts, apologized for not calling him back with a price for the repair sooner, and
offered to refund his 79.00 if he would retract the complaint.
Consumer Response: I spoke with the owner via telephone and the issue has been resolved satisfactorily. I wish to withdraw my complaint as a favorable outcome has been offered to me.

Complaint: We contracted with Reynolds HVAC in April 2009 to have central air conditioning put in our 1,324 square foot one-story home. Since then we have had nothing but problems. The air handler in the attic has been replaced as well as the thermostat. Reynolds HVAC has been out to our home at least 16 times within the past 4 years to try to "repair" the lemon of a unit. They should have just replaced it by now, because it is obviously a lemon. Instead we are going through stress, wasting time off work, etc. I am very upset with how they are handling this, and they should be ashamed of doing "business" like this. I feel as if they send whoever is on call when there is an issue, instead of technicians that know what they're doing.This is completely unacceptable and ridiculous. There are people with 30 year old units that work just fine.
Desired Settlement: I would like a refund of my money so that I can find a contractor who can provide a quality product and quality service - technicians who can properly install a working unit.
Business Response: Company responded by phone. **
The company indicates this matter has been resolved.

P.S. We are pleased with how they resolved the issue, and we once again have faith in their company and also their ability. Thank you for all of your help.
