Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: In 2004 we purchased a Heil heat pump/Central Air system from Affordable Comfort Contracting (recommended by them), which they installed. We had to call them back several times after they installed the system because we couldn't get the heat to go up past 50 degrees in the middle of winter and we had an infant. Weeks later after coming back several times they sent an electrician to fix the issue and it turned out that the wiring was hooked up wrong. The system functioned properly after that point until recently. This January we were having issues with the heat and had "Affordable" come out and we were charged an $85 service fee and were told that the compressor was shot and they offered to replace the unit "because it was a piece of crap" (that they sold us) or if we'd like, because the compressor was under warranty, we could opt for them to install the new compressor which was supposed to include "recovery of refrigerant, install new compressor, evacuate system then charge system as well as to check for proper operation"- words taken from their invoice. We opted for them to just replace the compressor and not the entire 'piece of crap' unit. They charged us $950 in labor and miscellaneous materials needed (although it was under warranty). This May when we put the Central Air on for the first time it just ran and ran and didn't cool at all. Freon was leaking into our office downstairs onto our equipment without our knowledge. We called the company out again only to be charged a service fee again and this time to be told that the Freon must have escaped ant that we would need 4 gallons of Freon @ over $50/gallon. After my husband didn't like that answer the technician told my husband that it only needed 1 gallon and that's what he put in We were charged for the Freon that was supposed to be 'captured' and he tried to get us to pay for more. Our system still isn't cooling. I called the company back several times and was told that I could possibly get another service charge if they come out again to fix it and it turns out to be something else. I called them because my Central Air isn't working, paid over $1,000 and am in the same position as when I first called them. I shouldn't have to pay for their guessing games.
Desired Settlement: I just want my unit working without getting raked over the coals. They can either repair it correctly or refund my money so I can have someone else repair it correctly.
