Additional Notes

Complaint: HVAC unit installed at commercial property back in Early 2008. System under warranty-labor and material for 5 years. Early 2008 Manual ****** from Superior Systems installed a HVAC unit at a commercial property located on Thornton Road in Stockton, Ca. Since then had issues that ****** took care of. Last October 2011 the Compressor went out and ****** ****** replaced and charged labor but should of been covered under warranty. I did not complain and took care of the bill. Had another problem a few weeks ago June 27th that the AC system not cooling the space down. Contacted ****** and he initially said that he will make it out there to take a look. He did not go there and I have made numerous phone calls and sent him txt messages with no response. Sent a txt on June 29th with no response. Called him a few times after that as well. He ended up going on vacation between July 4th to July 8th. Spoke to ****** on July 9th and he said sorry I was on vacation that I will go out tomorrow July 10th. Told him that since he did not respond back to me that I had to contact another company. The other company did the troubleshooted the issue and did the repairs. ****** had said that he will cover the labor charge but that was not good enough since I purchased the system from him and that it is under warranty for labor and material. He was reluctant and then in the end he said he would take care of it which I assumed he will cover the total cost. I emailed him the invoice on July9th and have not heard back from him. Have sent txt messages, left voicemails and emails. His license is shown as being suspended in the system so he should not be doing any new work so I dont understand why he is so busy not to return my calls. I wish to be reimbursed the full amount of the repairs that were done July9th of $755.20. He did work back in October 2011 that we spent about $400 some dollar and then have to deal with the same issue that it was not cooling down the space again a few weeks ago. The tenant did not use the unit back in October because the weather cooled down and just started to use it again.

Desired Settlement: Reimbursment (Labor and Material) for repairs made by another company. ****** ****** from Superior Systems has been ignorng my phone call and has not responded back to me request.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response
I have been in business for 8 years. Since day one, my maintenance policy is to give each customer a detailed contract of the work to be performed and all warranty terms and conditions. The 5yr. parts and labor warranty specifies that the unit be serviced twice a year by Superior Systems and was signed by Mr. ****** ******. Mr. ****** neglected to follow the terms of the contract and did not have his unit serviced since installation in his hair salon in 2008. My company was called out in 2011 due to the unit not cooling properly. At that time, the unit was filthy, the filters had never been changed, and the unit never received proper maintenance. Because I strive for 100% customer satisfaction, I again scheduled an appointment to service the unit. Mr. ****** expected that my company service his unit immediately during the 4th of July holiday. I was unable to accommodate his time frame; Mr. ****** chose to hire a different company to complete the service after the holiday. Mr. ****** is now angry and expects that my company is responsible for the fee charged by the other company. I regret that Mr. ****** is an unsatisfied customer; however, I will continue to use the same standard contract as it has worked well for the other 99% of my customers. I have requested that Mr. ****** show proof of maintenance records on the unit.
