So my 76-year-old mother calls out some air conditioning repair guy cause her air conditioner is on the fritz. I guess she just found him on Google.
The guy comes out and spends three hours lookin' at the unit. Finally says the refrigerant is bone dry. Says he'll fill it for free.
So he does and then runs a test. Says the refrigerant is still too low. Must be a leak. Says he'll be back the next day to fix it.
Next day he sends his brother. Brother says he found the leak and patched it, but when he went to test the line (a copper pipe of some sort?) he accidentally blew it. Says he'll
be back the next day to fix it.
So he comes back the next day and says he fixed it. But then he says when he went up to test the unit again, he noticed the fan motor has died. Now they want to replace the whole attic unit.
Says they feel bad for misdiagnosing and yadda yadda so the whole shebang will be just $500.
Mom says the unit they want to replace for just $500 cost $6,000 when she first bought it from Sears.
Unit wasn't working well when she called. Now it isn't working at all.
She's suspicious and so am I. You guys think this is a scam or just bad luck?
