Additional Notes

Complaint: The waldrop's website ********************* says "Free Estimates! Our comfort advisors will work with you to visit & evaluate your home, preparing a free quote to meet your individual HVAC needs." I requested and appointment for a free estimate for evaluation and repairs of my HVAC unit and was quoted a price of $79.00 for the visit. I want Waldrop to stand behind their advertisement.

Desired Settlement: I want Waldrop to evaluate my HVAC unit and provide a free quote for repairs as stated in their advertisement.

Business Response:

Waldrop feels customer has a valid point that our website is not clear on what is Free and what is not. Waldrop will be immediately revising the website to reflect clearly what is provided for Free. Waldrop ONLY provides estimates for replacements for Free this work is completed by a comfort consultant not a service technician. Waldrop charges a service charge for a service technician to be dispatched to a site for diagnosis of repairs. Waldrop will be reaching out to this customer to waive dispatch fee and provide requested estimate for repairs.
