AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning - A Scam Master

As AAA Expert Heating & Air Continue to deny its contractual obligation and practice consumer deception, the response from AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning is totally UNSATISFACTORY and UNACCEPTIBLE. On June 27, 2012, as a result of the scheduled annual maintenance, the technician of the AAA Heating & Air Conditioning clearly noted and signed on the work order that the "Low-Stage Contact" is defective and recommended it to be replaced. As AAA Heating & Air Conditioning continues to ignore its own technician recommendation and its warranty obligation, the air conditioning system completely broken down on July 18, 2012. This fact is verified and confirmed by RJS Heating and Cooling that the air conditioning become in-operable due to the defective part as mentioned by the AAA Heating & Air Conditioning's technician. Copy of RJS Heating and Cooling's work order had been forwarded previously via U.S. Mail Service. I also have retained the original defective part in my possession for further evidence and reference. During the process of repairing the defective air conditioning unit, RJS Heating and Cooling's licensed expert also established that the whole system of furnace and air conditioning system installed by AAA heating & Air Conditioning does not meet the industry safety standard. For example, AAA Heating & Air Conditioning did not install or ignored to install the correct voltages of circuit breaker as required and specified by the original manufactory manual and documentation. This is an indisputable prove that AAA Heating & Air Conditioning knowingly committed to consumer fraud and deception. AAA Heating & Air Conditioning keep mentioning that the scheduled annual maintenance is required for the warranty to be effective. However, it is an indisputable evidence that each and every scheduled annual maintenance had been performed by AAA Heating & Air Conditioning own technician. The above new facts coupled with the facts as stated on the original complaint filed on July12, 2012, further prove that AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning willfully and knowingly committed to consumer fraud, deception, false advertisement and unfair business practice as well as breached of contract. Once again, I hereby reserve all rights to eventually, if not already to, refer these issues to the Illinois State Attorney General – Office of Lisa Madigan, County of DuPage State Attorney, Department of Consumer Complaint of the Federal Trade Commission, and/or seek resolution in the Court of Laws.

What happend to Hochininh from Michigan who wrote the original complaint? There are legal courses of action that AAA Expert is in the process of taking against you, Mr.

Ly. You have covered the internet with false statements about AAA Expert.

AAA Expert services the Chicagoland area only and by having someone in Traverse City, Michigan (two states over) assist in your on-line work. Look up the word "libel" while you are on-line!

Owners of AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning not only the master of scam but also liars and cheaters. They are only interested in scam your upfront money. Stay away from this scamer at all costs.

Mr. Lawrence Ly of Naperville, IL - how's all these complaints working for you?

You have failed at all agencies as your claims are all bogus.

TRUE Facts always win, original paperwork works the best - too bad you couldn't provide either.

AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning Breach of Contract

Original review posted by user Jul 11, 2012
On June 30, 2009, I signed a contract with AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning located at 2474 Wisconsin Avenue, Downer Grove, Illinois 60515 to install a new heating & air conditioning system. The duly signed contact on June 30, 2009 clearly stated that 10 years warranty on all parts and labor as well as three years free maintenance agreement. About one month after the system was installed; the air conditioning started making intermittent loud zapping noise. The intermittent zapping noise was loud enough to wake me up at the middle of the night. After numerous complaints, on May 17, 2011, a technician of AAA Expert named Mike came to check on the air conditioning system. Mike verified the loud zapping noise was came from the air conditioning unit but unable to pinpoint the exact part or cause of the problem. Even the original signed contract clearly stated that all parts and labor are warranty for ten years; I still was charged $125.00 for the service visit. On that same day, I spoke with Joe Kasallis, a co-owner of the AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning. Joe said that only if I can identify any defected part of the air conditioning system then he would replace it under the warranty agreement. On June 27, 2012, another technician of the AAA Expert Heating Company named Kevin G. come out to service the air conditioning system again as part of the free maintenance agreement as stated on the original contract. Kevin, the technician, identified the loud noise causes by the "contactor-low stage" of the air conditioning unit and recommend in writing on the service ticket that the part needed to be ordered and replaced in order to fix the loud zapping noise. On July 9, 2012 (fourteen days after the recommendation of the AAA Expert's technician), I called to follow up. And again, I get the same frustrating response from Larry Kasallis, another co-owner of the AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning Company. Larry's first said that the part is not under warranty anymore since I have not had regular annual maintenance service. However, once I mentioned that I have records of the annual maintenance service for the last three years from his own company, then Larry said "the part still not under warranty since the manufactory only warrantee the parts producing cool air of the system and nothing else." To sum it up: After the first service visit, the warranty agreement is not valid because the defected part could not be identified. Then, after the defected part was identified by the company's licensed technician the part is still not under warranty because there is no prove of regular annual maintenance service. And then, after the records proved the regular annual maintenance, the part is not specifically warrantee by the manufactory. On July 10, 2012 I hired an independent third party licensed technician to look into the problem. To my surprise, the technician pointed out to me that the model unit identification of the air conditioning installed is not the same model unit showed on the originally contract agreement as signed. Also, not only the wrong model unit was installed, the model unit installed was actually manufactured in 2006 and was not in 2009 as the company co-owner, Joe Kasallis, originally represented. In light of the above facts and evidences, I believe that the AAA Heating & Air Conditioning willfully and knowingly committed to consumer fraud, deception and unfair business practice as well as breached of contract.

AAA Expert Heating and Cooling has the worst customer service in the industry and uses deceptive practice. They do not honor the "10 year warranty" they have hand written on the sales contract and somehow manage to find a loop hole.

The person we spoke to, Bob, was a complete *** He was unprofessional, condescending and rude. I am just sorry we had them install our AC unit, which they have already repaired once. We purchased Trane because of its reputation, but if its not installed correctly, then its not as great as the company advertises it to be. Bob got "pissed off" when we told him we will have another company diagnose and repair our AC.

But I'll be damned if I give AAA another penny.

I can't believe he actually expected us to continue working with him after the way we were treated. What an ***!

I agree. They are unconscionable scammers. No thought for the people they harm.

AAA Expert Heating & Air Conditioning (AAA Expert) continues misuse Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) and Angies' List brand in false advertising. AAA Expert is currently using its website and routinely using printed materials to falsely claim its rating and credibility with BBB in order to scam uninformed customers or theft by deception.

Theft by deception is felony and criminal in the Court of law.

Unless you enjoy pissed off at AAA Expert, otherwise your money is better spent someplace else!!!
