Glad to see the heat wave is leaving, finally, yet I am very disturbed by what the air and heating companies have done to us during this time. I don't know how many called air conditioning companies for help. What scares me is how much did they pay for the help they needed? Every call I made was a $55 to $70 charge just for them to show up at your door! Then I was stunned they would charge $75 to $90 per pound for Freon that costs them no more for R22 or a cheaper green-friendly replacement R410A under $89 for a 30-pound tank.
I feel bad for the elderly and poor who already were worried about rent or mortgage, utilities, food! Please call your representatives about this gouging.
