Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Company did not fix the problem and wanted to charge me $120 to come back out to even evaluate the situation. Company came out on 7/30/13 to fix my air conditioner. They said it was fixed and working. The cost was $182. I tried to use the air conditioner for the FIRST time a month later and it still did not work. I called the company and they told me there would be a charge of $120 for them to come out again to look at the unit. I told them they never fixed tbe problem in the first place. They said it had been more than 30 days so there would be a charge. I said it didn't work the FIRST time i used it after they came out. They didn't care.
Desired Settlement: Come out and fix my Air Condtioner w/o charging me the testing they have to do. I will pay for the reapair, not the testing.

Complaint: YES installed a brand new HVAC system at our residence last year. Although heater works fine, the AC does not cool the house. In the summer of 2011 I had YES out to our home for a free (coupon) inspection of the AC and installation of a new CO2 detector. Approximtately a week later my AC quit working so I had YES return. They indicated the compressor was bad, needed to be replaced but because of the price, they suggested that I get a whole new unit because mine was about 15 years old. The salesman, Sean Mahoney, promised that a new AC would work so well, it would be cold in the house. He also indicated that the need for new ducts and additional insulation was unnecessary. I applied for and received a $9000 loan from SMUD paid directly to YES that I am to make payments on for the next 10 years. Although the heater works just fine and keeps the house comfortably warm in the winter, last summer and this summer the AC just can't cool down or keep the house cool. I was told any AC can only cool a house about 20 degrees from the outside temperature, however, like today, it is 97 degrees outside, yet with our thermostat set at 76, it is a very uncomfortable 84 degrees inside. YES has added more freon, repaired a torn duct, enlarged the return air and sped up the fan/compressor but nothing yet has resulted in a resolution to our problem. YES is now recommending I get more insulation put into my attic and to add attic fans to the roof but I should not have to put out more money when I was already promised a cool house with just the purchase of their HVAC. At the time of the sale, I was also promised lower energy bills since I was getting a brand new, energy effificent product, however, our electricity bills are more now than they have ever been. Not long after the unit was installed and I started having issues, I was informed that the salesman who sold me the unit had been fired. In checking YES' information here on BBB website, I discovered that he had an expired salesperson license at the time.
Desired Settlement: I either want YES to provide us with additional insulation and attic fans at no cost to us or to provide a larger, new replacement unit. I just want what I was promised during the sale, 'a cool, comfortable, energy efficient home.'
