Complaint: I called this person to fix a heater as there was no heat going in the house. He did come out that day and was able to get heat going throughout the house. However, he wrote up a slip listing of some additional charges that we were going to need to fix a heater. The next day, the heater fails and water is leaking in the basement. I called the serviceman, along with my sister on separate phone calls, and he refused to come out and fix this. The serviceman and my sister got into a very heater arguement and we both told him that it was best that we did not need his services. One month later, we find out that we were charged for his 1/3 of a billing statement that he wrote up and listed some suggested things that he wanted to do. We are ok with giving him something for coming out and getting the heater started, however, the work that was done was not worth $800.00, nor was it $2400 as what he said the cost would have been. We contacted another person, and he told us that all that was needed to fix the heater was to fix a spring that was only worth $6.00. This serviceman that we have complained about has not done anymore work with this heater since as we told him that his services were no longer needed, and that we did not want to be charged what he planned. I have also disputed this with my credit card company.Feel free to contact me directly and I can give you more information that I cannot disclose publicly.
Desired Settlement: We should not be charged $800.00 or more for his services. This charge was a proposed service that never happened. However, he is entitled to something for coming out and was able to get heat going throughout the house, although it did fail the next day. A lesser payment would be acceptable.

Dear Sir or Madam:
#1) Customer called late Saturday PM & asked for service on Monday, called back 10 minutes later to request EMERGENCY service because his mother’s house was cold and they didn’t want to wait. We came out immediately (emergency Saturday PM service in snow). Troubleshoot & diagnose problems with gas-fired boiler that was installed approx. 8 yrs. ago (?). Found system off, ran several diagnostic test to determine what problems boiler had, system had been neglected, never cleaned, maintained, flushed, filled or bled, and the pilot safety device burned out. So, in order to provide heat for the entire 3 story house on a 10 degree cold (snow) evening, we supplied & installed new pilot safety device & wired into unit & filled & bled radiators to give house temporary heat while we can pick up remainder of material & set job up for Monday. At the same time, discussing with *******, the heat was off for some time and it’s 30 degrees in the house. We got unit running, fired it up, raised the temperature of the water, & got water circulating so it would not freeze , thereby preventing major damage to system and the house. Customer agreed to get all work done on heating system that was agreed was needed. Customer signed & initialed in 4 different locations of our invoice and payment slip confirming; a) Emergency work authorization waiver, b) non-cancellation of entire contract, c) initialed the payment schedule, and d) signed credit card slip for the deposit of $800.00.

I have read the details that were attached, and I do not agree with his recall of what occurred. I did not have heat which did not work on Saturday and we were informed that parts of the heater were broken and needed to be replaced. ***** gave an estimate and wanted a deposit of 1/3 of the amount for the upcoming work. There was not a written nor signed contract. When the heater did not work on Sunday and he refused to come out to fix it (we also had a pipe which was broken and leaking water), I felt that he did not have our best interests in hand, and we needed to establish heat so that more pipes would not break. My sister, ****, called another repair person who came out immediately and repaired the heater. At this point, **** called ***** and explained to him that it was unacceptable that no one was available to come out to fix the heater especially when they were out the day prior, and that waiting until Tuesday when it is 8 degree outside is unacceptable. She also explained to him that we acquired someone else to come and look at the heater and wanted to know what the cost was for yesterday's work since the $800 was only agreed upon for the upcoming work (the parts and labor of the heater that were perfectly fine). He said that he would call us back. When ***** called back **** and informed her that the job would still be $800.00, **** explained to him that we were extremely upset with this because this is not what it cost for the work that he did on Saturday and that it included parts and labor for upcoming work which he would not be doing. I feel that he was being very spiteful. **** then explained to him that if he did charge us this amount, we were planning on disputing this to ******** ******* as well as reporting him to the BBB. At this point in time he got irate, told **** that he didn't care that he was losing the job, and that he was calling **** to talk to him. When he called ****, he explained that he did not want to lose the job. ***** was also very upset that we called someone else because he wanted to do the work. I'm sure he did since he was "ripping us off" and didn't want us to find out. I did inform ***** that I felt that he was entitled to compensation for only the work that was done on Saturday, which does not amount to $800.00.
I was informed from the next contractor that the only thing which was wrong with the relatively new heater was that a spring needed to be adjusted. The same person came out on Monday to fix the valve that needed to be repaired, as he was unable to do it on Sunday because the store was closed where he needed to get the part. At this point I was very upset because we were getting "ripped off" by ***** especially since the parts of the heater he was planning on replacing were working just fine. If you go online to look at his reviews by other customers you will see that others have commented that he is a "crook". I feel very strongly that this person takes advantage of people when they are at need and its not fair to innocent, hard working people. If you need a bill from our second contractor with the explanation of what he fixed, I can certainly get that for you. I agree that ***** should be paid something for the emergency visit and for very poorly fixing the heater so that I got heat for less than 24 hours. I am willing to pay him $225.00 for his work since he was only at the house for 1 hour. I hope that we are able to resolve this matter. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration on this matter.
******* and **** *********

As submitted with my response, dated March 8, 2014, please refer to the signed documents by the customer acknowledging the work to be done, and agreeing to the price and so on. The contact person we dealt with was ****, I never spoke to **** until that Sunday, so naturally my concerns would and should be discussed and directed to **** since **** was not present at the time of my service call. It is ****’s credit card.
Particularly, when **** called on Sunday she was belligerent and demanding from the start. My first thought when first speaking with her was that obviously there must be something else making her so offensive and brash. I attempted to speak to her in a professional and calm manner, trying to decipher her concerns so I could address them, but after a few minutes into our discussion it was apparent she was not allowing me to respond, only demanding immediate service. It was then that I asked to speak to **** since it was he who I dealt with all along. I explained to **** that I would return Monday first thing. **** called back stating that it was unacceptable to her. She was being unreasonable and refused to speak with me further.
I am sorry that the ********** are not happy. I reassure you I earned the $800 as documented in my previous response.
