Complaint: Wolfer's claims they will beat their competitors quote by $500. I have been obtaining quotes to replace my heat pump and air handler - (specifically Lennox model XP14-042.) I have received numerous quotes. When I returned to Wolfer's with a quote beating their's by $1700 from a reputable company, exact same model, however, an upgraded thermostat to their quote. Their salesman Leon B*** said their prices were firm. I have emails and quotes to prove it. Why does your advertising state you will beat any competitor by $500? As a consumer, this feels sneaky, misleading, and is downright false advertising. It's not right. Now that they're operating under the Costco umbrella, I guess they don't need to build or maintain relationships with that kind of exposure. Not a company I would trust.
Desired Settlement: Discontinue use of advertising claim which is obviously FALSE.
Wolfer's Home services has notified BBB, orally, that their advertised claim of beating competitors quote by $500 is discontinued. In addition, Wolfer's forwarded BBB the following email from your email address:
Yes, I'm actually thinking we're going to be cancelling all together... We found a reputable company that beat your quote by $1700 and they included the wifi-thermostat - exact same model xp14-042 and air handler.. They also beat your interest rate at 3.5%. (Without knowing who they were competing against.)
In emailing with you earlier, it didn't seem like your company was willing to do any negotiating, and even took back the wifi stat you included, causing me to look elsewhere.
Anyway, I do appreciate your time.
Consumer Response: Based on the fact the company would not match my quote, I'd like my $100 refunded, (which would have gone toward my purchase.)
As you can see below Mr. B*** advised he would not follow their advertising claim. Which my husband discussed at his site visit as well and he said they do.
Please follow up.
I am rejecting this response because:
We are very sorry about the confusion regarding this issue. Our intent is always to meet, or exceed our customers expectations. We will be issueing a check in the amount requested. $100. again, my apologies for the confusion.
Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We had a 2 stage Lennox Gas furnace installed May 9th 2014. This weekend, I replaced the thermostat that they installed with the furnace. This furnace we had installed by them is a 2 stage furnace, yet they only made it work with a single stage. I found this out, when I was replacing the thermostat with a Honeywell Lyric, that will save Natural Gas and reduce our utility bills even farther. They should of installed new thermostat wire that would of made the furnace work with 2 stages, which we payed for. One of the workers, went in the house with my wife to install the thermostat, while I stayed in the garage with the other guy. Neither one of the workers let us know that it was installed with only one stage working. Looks now like they tried to hide it. I would of never known, if I didn't replace the thermostat. Here's something else I let slide. The installers didn't bring an extension ladder with them, so I let them use mine and I let them use my 4" hole saw, when they only had a sawzall, that would of butchered the hole through the roof. A quality contractor would have a selection of hole saws in the truck and an extension ladder.
Desired Settlement: I bought 37 dollars worth of thermostat cable at*********** today for the change out. They could refund that, plus some dollars for my time and effort to make the furnace work with 2 stages, like we paid for.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2015/01/30) */ *******, We have reviewed your installation. It looks as though our installers adjusted the control board in the furnace to switch between 1st and 2nd stage, which does not require additional thermostat wire. I apologize if that was not explained to you at the time of installation. We are more than happy to accommodate your request for compensation and refund the amount of the thermostat wire you purchased. A representative from our office will be calling you shortly to discuss the details. You are a valued customer and we thank you for giving us the opportunity to address this matter with you and come to a resolution. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (2000, 10, 2015/02/10) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) I writing to tell you that Wolfers really gave us great customer service. *** their Service Manager came out and took care of everything. He really made us feel like a valuable customer. He paid for the wire I bought and the Lyric thermostat, plus, left us a filter. Not many companies come through like that. ******* ******
