Additional Notes

Complaint: The Gwyn Electrical Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Company charged me for a recovery motor for a Trane Unit that was fully warranted. I spoke with a gentleman named Roger at Gwyn who confirmed their companies' mistake. He agreed to replace the recovery unit with a Trane authorized motor; refund me the $432.00 that the company charged me for the recovery unit; and to provide me with a free service call in the Fall. Roger told me that they would replace the recovery unit the next day, but I had to call them numerous time before they actually showed up 5 days later. I have been calling Gwyn electrical Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Company numerous times in the last two plus weeks regarding the refund and I am routed to different people with whom I only get their voicemail and never receive a return call. I called again today July 27, 2015, and was once again routed to someone's voicemail whom I don't expect to receive a return call. This leaves me no other alternative, but to seek outside assistance with this matter.

Desired Settlement: Please refund the $432.00 that I was charged for the motor that was on warranty as quickly as possible.

Business Response: In regards to the complaint issued on 07/27/2015, complaint # ******** involving Mr. ***** ******* ******, it is agreed that the response time from our service supervisor and service manager to get the order to have Mr. ******'s check cut was unintentionally delayed.  Mr. ******'s motor was installed over a year ago, and was just brought to our attention within the past two weeks that the motor in question was still in warranty, and Mr. ****** should not have been charged for the part when it was installed.  Last week it was agreed that Mr. ****** should have a check issued in his name for the balance due.  The order was never placed with the payables department.  Mr. ******'s check has been cut by our company President, and will mail in the post on 07/29/2015.

It is company policy for any return calls to be made within 24 hours, and are disappointed that our staff did not adhere to said policy.  We apologize to Mr. ****** that he experienced this event, and are using the event for inner-office customer training.
Thank you for your time and attention in this matter.
