Local Scam Call – May 2017
A number of DuPage County residents have been contacted by a local HVAC company with whom they had previously done business, saying that a component on their air conditioner unit had an “informal” recall because the surge protector, if left alone, might cause a fire. The company states that their technicians would disconnect the component for a cost of $150. Or, if the homeowner agreed to have the annual service checkup conducted by this company the disconnection cost would be below $50.
The manufacturer, when contacted, claims there is no recall and that their firm received numerous calls about the supposed recall, all related to actions by this local HVAC company.
If you are contacted with a story similar to this one get a second opinion!
