Misleading Sales Pitch
After researching many local HVAC companies I chose to have Estes install a new furnace. The Estes salesman wrote a proposal for a two stage furnace. I did a search online and discovered that no furnace with the given item number existed. I contacted the salesman for clarification and was told that he thought I was talking about a two stage blower. We never discussed a two stage blower. I also learned that the size of the furnace was much smaller than the unit that I currently have. When I contacted his sales manager, he defended the misrepresentation as an error. The manager verbally committed to honoring the initial price for an actual two stage furnace. He wanted to schedule the installation, but had not given me a proposal reflecting the equipment and price. This was on a Friday, but I was told that I needed to wait until Monday. I emailed my concerns of having to wait two days to the owner of Estes. He responded that it was just a confusion and they would get me a revised proposal. I responded that I would review the proposal and consider my options. I also shared that I don’t believe that this is the first time this has happened with Estes. He retaliated by stating that he was not pleased with my “insinuation” that Estes had mislead its clients and he withdrew the proposal. I found Estes to be unsupportive even with my documentation proving that I was knowingly misled.
