I recently had put in a call to my local heating and cooling company to have my HVAC system repaired. One night it made this awful sound and then there was this big popping sound. Following that, my heating was no longer working. I thought it may have been a fuse blown in the thermostat or something, but I went to check the fuses and it was not. The heating and cooling company on the phone was pretty nice and easy going. I had never called a heating and cooling company for HVAC repair before in my entire life, so this was something new to me. The HVAC repair appointment was set for the next day. When the heating and cooling specialist arrived, he had a look at my entire HVAC system inside and out. From the thermostat on the wall, to the actual heating and cooling unit outside that ran the thing. He figured out what the problem was and said he could have it fixed within the hour. I waited, and within the hour, lo and behold, he actually had it back up and running! So, I thanked him, told him to send me the bill and he left. A week later I got a bill for over one thousand dollars! One thousand dollars plus for a simple heating and cooling system repair? That is a major load of donkey crap! I then called the heating and cooling company and they had no answers other than, that was what the bill was. I am calling a lawyer on Monday!
