Complaint: I contacted **** Heating and ***conditioning, Inc. to take advantage of a coupon from *********** for a $49 super furnace tune-up. It's about 1/2 price of what most heating and air conditioning companies charge so I thought it sounded like a good deal. The tech, ****, came to my house on 10/29/13 and started "servicing" the furnace. After about 5 minutes he called me down to show me images from his camera of what he said were cracks in my heat-exchanger. He said the furnace was unsafe to operate and an extreme health hazard and that he was required by the ******** Gas Association to shut it down immediately, which he did.He said I needed a new furnace that started at #3500 or $5500 if I wanted a high efficiency furnace. He said they were offering a $500 rebate which expired 10/31/13. He said he was not allowed by the ******** Gas Association to complete the tune-up because the furnace was not safe to operate and he had me sign a couple of forms and collected the $49 payment although he had not performed the tune-up. I turned the furnace back on after **** left. There are two carbon monoxide (CO) monitors installed in my house and neither of them went off when I placed them next to a heat register. I just purchased this home and had an inspection about 2 weeks ago where the inspectors did not find any problems with the furnace so I was skeptical and called the heating and air conditioning company I had used at my previous home and had been very happy with to get a 2nd opinion. Their tech came out and checked the furnace, did a full tune-up and tested for CO today, 11/1/2013 and found the furnace to be in good working order. There was no sign of CO. The company is ******** *** Heating and *** conditioning and their tech told me this was the 3rd time this week he had heard about a similar scam to the one I experienced with ****. The pink **** add clearly targets women and state that they donate to breast cancer research. The tech even wore pink booties.
Desired Settlement: I placed a stop payment on the check I payed the **** technician with.I don't know if the company will dispute this. If they do, I would like assistance in resolving the dispute so that no payment will be required because the advertised service was not provided.

Complaint: I filed a complaint with the administrative assistant and told her to cancel my plan with them and she did not and I have been charged numerous times. I filed a complaint with the administrative assistant telling her that one of the service men told me something that was a lie and tried to sell me $5000 worth of equipment that I did not actually need. I got the air conditioner looked at by several other companies and none of them said that I needed a new air conditioner. I was told that there was a leak in my air conditioner and the actual unit needed to be replaced. This was found not to be true. I called the company 2 days later and told them that I wanted to cancel their service and file a complaint to their manager. The administrative assistant was rude and I was never given a call back nor given my money back like the assistant said that I would. The manager never called me back and now I am being charged monthly $11.95 for a service that I told them that I wanted to cancel. This is proving that this company not only tries to sell products that people dont need but they also do not hold to their word and charge unlawfully after the service has been cancelled
Desired Settlement: I would like 11.95 X 6months= 71.70 and the $50 service charge refunded since the service man tried to sell me something that I did not need. In total I would like 121.70 refunded to me.
Business Response: Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2012/10/18) */ I was sorry to hear about the problems Mr. ****** has had with our company. I have pulled his files and talked to the technician that provided his service. According to the service ticket filled out by the tech he found a capacitor that was leaking. When a capacitor leaks it doesn't necessarily mean that the A/C will not work, it is simply a indication that the compressor has been working too hard and will cause future problems. I cant speak for the other tech's that looked at Mr. *******'s system, however it is common practice in our trade for tech's to only address issues that are causing failure at the time of their visit. Our tech's are trained to not only address problems that require immediate attention but to also create an awareness for future problems. The tech that was on Mr. *******s service call has 10+ years of experience and I dont beleive its in his character to "lie" about needed repairs. I wasn't present for the conversation between Mr. ****** and our tech, however, he told me it was a repair verses replace conversaton based on the age of the system. The national average life of an A/C system is 15 years and this particular system is 10 years old. Many companys will just move forward with a repair where our techs are trained to share facts and provide options. Im not sure why the club membership was not cancelled upon Mr. ******'s request but it has now been canceelled and I will address our communcation ineffeciencies internally. Our records indicate Mr. ****** paid $49 by credit card on June 29th of 2012 and his card was charged $11.95 per month for 4 months. The total of the refund I will gladly pay is $96.80. Thank You, ****** ******.
