Additional Notes

Complaint: I believe in an honest days work for an honest days pay. Redline did not offer such a case. I had a stubborn pilot light that didn't want to light. This is a new house with new quirks and evidently we found another one. Before the redline tech even knocked on the door I had the pilot light lit and good to go. The gentleman and I use that term extremely loose in this situation, came in and was greeted by my father in law who sent him down the stairs to see me. I told the tech, sorry that I really didn't need his services and the next words that came out of his mouth were that he still needed to charge me. Which fine if that is legally what he needed to do then that's just great, however that just goes to show that redline has no business ethics in my book. Yes I understand that they have to pay for gas and wages but if the tech doesn't do anything of what the service call was in reference to then he should not collect any form of payment for no services rendered. I told the tech that I disagreed with him charging me and he still made me pay.

Desired Settlement: I'd like a refund however I am sure they are going to site some legal jargon about not having to. That's the problem is if a company has to hide behind legal just because they can't be morally responsible to do the right thing.

Business Response: Customer Complaint #********

I apologize for the delay in response to this complaint. We have resently upgraded our working platform and the emails were misdirected for a short time.

I understand the Customers complaint - they believe in pay for work. I agree. Part of our work includes traveling to the Customers home as they cannot bring their Furnace to us. If an appointment is made and kept on our part, we have performed work and deserve pay.

The service tech could have been kinder and will be educated for better Customer service.

The Customer should get service. Furnaces do not repair themselves and this is a legitimate No Heat situation. I extend to the Customer to finish servicing their Furnace (Tune Up only) at no additional charge. The **** ****** Home Warranty Company has noted that the Customers Furnace needs to be serviced to maintain warrant-able and future repairs covered.  

*** ******* - Manager

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:

I disagree with *** Stenson's business model. If I were to call 20 different roofing companies and have them all come out and give me an estimate on my roof as to if it needs replacement or not then I wouldn't have to pay a dime. Same goes for landscapers and numerous other companies as I could write a full and complete list. I have done many jobs in my life and I believe in great customer service. In fact so much so that when I worked in an auto shop and a customer had a loose windshield wiper I tightened it down made sure nothing else was mechanically wrong with the part, filled up the customer's fluid and sent them on their way free of charge. Why you ask, it's because if you treat your customer right the first time then they will come back to you when something major does happen not to mention it's the right way to treat people/customers. For example if my furnace does fail and it may or may not be under warranty with **** ****** at that time, I would rather pay more out of pocket to not let RedLine into my house ever again. 

I do however agree with *** on one thing, and that is that "Furnaces do not repair themselves". That being said, later in the evening I had my wife go pick up a thermocouple from the local hardware store because the pilot light kept going out. Installed it and lit my furnace one more time and it has been lit ever since. Even if RedLine's tech would have done a quick easy diagnostic on the thermocouple then it would have come back as being useless and would have been acceptable to charge the price RedLine had charged. As for the offer to "(Tune Up only) at no additional charge" well although I somewhat appreciate the offer I must decline. The reason I must decline is because had Redline's tech even written notes about the furnace he glanced at, then he would have written something down that it had already been recently cleaned to which was a stipulation on the purchase of the house which I had already told **** ****** Home Warranty. To which **** ****** simply stated that if the furnace failed due to not being maintained then the warranty would be void, but since the furnace had already gone through the tune up process then if it failed for any reason it would then be covered. 

With all this being stated if this is the kind of business Redline is, then that reflects what kind of partner **** ****** is. We have all heard the old adage you are the company you keep, so I'm not too off base in saying any of this. 

Regards,

********* *********

Consumer Response: Yes Redline finally owned up to their faults and refunded the money. I'm not sure that I would use their services again in the future however, I am glad that we came to an understanding and the bad blood has been resolved. Thanks to the BBB, and thanks to Redline handling the issue.  

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
