Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Called Company Monday May 14th to check why AC was not working. They did come out to look at next day and repair. They said condenser motor was bad and needed to be replaced and capacitor. They gave me a price of $800 which I reluctantly agreed because it was Hot out. Four days later motor went bad by not starting up easily by itself if you spin fan blade manually it will start itself. Called company and they said there is nothing they could do for me except discount a whole new unit for me at a replacement cost of $2200. I looked up motor they installed and it is a very cheap $88 dollar motor that did not have enough Amps to power my fan blade enough. The new unit unit they quoted me was a the cheapest ******* you can buy with a 13 seer rating and uses the old R22 refridgerant which is what my system takes. but They just wanted way to much money for it even after installation and everything. Again, this job is just an easy switch out. I signed their paper on Friday May 17th 2013 not realizing I was paying for such a cheap system and they said I had 3 BUISNESS days to cancel the contract. Monday evening I decided to research the unit and found I could buy the same unit for $800 dollars and have a complete install done by another company for a total of $1400. Tuesday I called South Hills Electric to cancel my install of their new unit and they said I could not. The manager was very unfriendly and flat out said too bad, it is sitting here and we already charged you and you can't cancel now. I told him his contract clearly states you can cancel within 3 Business days and I am within that time frame. He said good luck but your not getting your money back. So now I've paid over $3000 dollars and only have a very cheap broken motor and no working AC. What a rip off...
Desired Settlement: Refund my credit card for $2200 and replace cheap motor they put in that wasn't rated high enough for my system's fan blade. I have put a dispute in with ***** credit card as well. Also, I may need to file civil suit if they do not comply. Also, they really should fire their manager for his negative actions and additude. I would not recommend this Company to anyone...
Mr ****** contacted us on 04/16/2013 because his 15 year old AC condenser was making a humming noise. Technician ****** went out 04/18/2013 to service equipment. ****** presented Mr ****** 3 options to get his families AC running.
BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
