We can't do that at this time. We are not even sure how we want to proceed with your company, or we may go with another company." The seriousness of the situation was discussed. ***** said he would return call. - 9:49 am - ***** phoned back - ***** said "I have a technician on the way. He can be there shortly." Wife responded "If there is going to be any charge today, cancel your technician." He said "I will get a technician out there to at least disconnect and assess it, then we will talk." - Ben was to be at the house by 10:10 am - he arrived at 11:15 am - Homeowner had to phone as to whereabouts of technician - Technician states he remembers installing the unit - Technician stated "Looks like a faulty coil" - Homeowner still looking for invoice - does not agree with company on installation date - Invoice is found on past house inspection on 4/29/2011 - Technician then states "Could be the breaker box" - complete turnaround from original assessment - Unit disconnected - Technician stated ***** would be in touch with warranty information, purchase information, new purchase information, and charges if we decide to go with their company - Technician left - Homeowner began to check online for warranty information and product reviews - Meanwhile technician returns - he stated he needed pictures, but he stated he needed to leave with $173 so that his boss would not be upset with him - Wife explains what was told to her and so he says just give me $53 so that I am okay with my boss - Homeowner says No, that is not what was explained - Technician states Get in touch with your homeowners insurance for them to pay coming out fee, heater, maybe new panel box - Homeowner knows that homeowners' insurance is only for damages that occurred to property due to flood or fire, but did confirm with State Farm - Phoned **** Electric where said heater was purchased by Rohrer / ********* and **** **** confirmed no such purchase within a five-year period - Marley the heater manufacturer working with homeowner - May 6, 2014 - ***** Roher leaves voice mail at home- 9:49 am - Requesting payment of $145 for disconnection which was never discussed - Disconnect was something explained that he was requesting the technician do at no charge and after assessment by technician additional charges for going forward in the future were to be discussed and nothing was - Homeowner disappointed - past experiences with Rohrer were positive - long-term relationship had been formed; with tone, unprofessionalism, very last questionable experience with *** ******** Plumbing - a phone call was placed this evening (May 6, 2014) on ***** Rohrer's voice mail stating we no longer wish to do business with them. Homeowner (wife) made perfectly clear many times before technician even came out that explanation of all charges was required up front. Stated to homeowner that there would be absolutely no charge for visit and assessment. Future charges would be discussed. Again - tone, lack of compassion, late for appointment with no call after a very stressful morning warrants at the very least an apology Customer does not wish to do business with Rohrer's in the future Homeowner's job allows for very positive feedback from customers for many reputable plumbing and heating businesses. 

Desired Settlement: Not to be invoices/charged as per verbal agreement. 

Business Response: We apologize for the misunderstanding. When I spoke to **. ****** on the phone, I did state that we would waive the service call fee so that we could get a technician to the home and discover any existing issues. There was no intent that we would disconnect the system for free. We apologize for any misunderstanding and we have waived the invoice so that there is no payment due or balance remaining. The invoice was waived after the voicemail left by ***. ****** to myself on May 6, 2014, which is why she never received an invoice. Please let me know if there are any remaining questions.
