HVAC Scams to Watch Out For

The people you depend on to keep you cool in the dog days of summer are HVAC companies. But are some air conditioning repair men actually taking advantage of you. Recently we went undercover to find out what’s really going on.

When your air conditioner breaks,it’s an emergency. No one likes to be excessively hot not to mention the effect the heat has on air quality which makes it difficult for those with breathing problems. So,when it breaks,you call the AC Company of course trusting them to come and fix the problem at a fair price,but… are they really providing you the best solution at the best price? We’ve found that some companies are blowing you hot air when they hand you that big bill.

We called in a few companies to cool our house down. But when these AC repairmen show up we found that many of them were either being dishonest or all together incompetent. One after the other tried charging us big money for repairs that other experts say we didn’t need. We set up our test of these companies right smack in the middle of a heat wave.

First we rented a house in Delaware and had 3 AC experts inspect our system from top to bottom. –Enhanced Heating and Air– All 3 reported that the AC system was in great to very good condition. Then we brought in another expert to set up a common and easy to fix problem with the system. He set up a simple broken wire that shuts the unit down. He said he would charge less than $200 to fix it. We found that other technicians tell us that you need other work done to fix this problem. This begs us to ask,”Are you either being incompetent or are you just simply being dishonest”?

Once we set up the easy to fix problem,we called in six separate AC companies to come out and fix the problem. The first contractor finds our broken wire but instead of fixing it he wants to charge us for an expensive part. The part he wants to charge us for is called a capacitor. He wants to charge $395 to replace a part that we originally had inspected and found it had absolutely no problems. We called him out on this assessment and he left in a huff declining to comment or return our calls.

The next guy finds and fixes our broken wire rather quickly. But,instead of leaving it at that,he recommends we replace an expensive part saying that the unit is leaking combustible fluid. He claims it needs to be fixed today in order to fix the problem. The cost,$692! The part he claimed was leaking simply displayed harmless rust.

The 3rd company tries to charge us for several expensive parts totally $850! The 4th company claimed we needed new parts as well,including one that didn’t even exist in the system. The price for his repair… $950! At least this company ended up firing that technician for his dishonesty. The 5th and 6th companies did the same thing with trying to charge us for unnecessary repairs and parts.

In the end,6 out of 6 companies tried to charge us for parts and repairs we did not need. Honestly,we did not expect to see this level of dishonesty or incompetence from so many HVAC contractors in the area.

Experts say that you should get your unit serviced every year so it doesn’t break in the middle of a heat wave but even if it does of course despite what we found there are actually very honest A/C companies out there. To make it easy to find one in Delaware at least,we recommend you start with click over here.

Swami Amar Jyoti was born on Might 6,1928 in a village in northwestern India,not far from the banks of the Indus River. His childhood interests were lots of: science,math,music,writing,biking,drama and sports,and He brilliantly excelled in all of these. His college education was temporarily disrupted by the partition of India in 1947,but He quickly moved to a college in Mumbai (Bombay). Much precious by household and professors,He shocked everybody with thedecision to leave house a few months before graduation,saying,”I wish to check out an open book of the world for my education.”

At the age of nineteen,without cash or any particular destination,He took the first train to Calcutta. It was 1948. Refugees were pouring over the border of East Bengal (now Bangladesh) into West Bengal by the thousands every day. Surviving on a railway platform near the border of India and Bangladesh,He quickly headed the whole volunteer corps there,working relentlessly 20 hours or more every day.

Swami Amar Jyoti survived on the outskirts of the city in a peaceful ashram and pursued classical music,sitar,religious studies and prayer. He began to practice meditation and do yoga and participated in puja (standard worship) at a nearby temple of a widely known saint. In a short while He “knew” His life work. Very soon He retired to Himalaya where He resided in silence and meditation for about ten years,one-pointed onthe Objective of Liberation. Lots of places of trip were gone to during those years,strolling on foot lots of miles every day. However a little cave at Gangotri,the temple town near the source of the Ganga River,was the location of His biggest spiritual disciplines,awakenings and,finally,Illumination.

In 1958,taking initiation of Vidyut Sannyas (lit: “lightning”– a kind of monasticism that is Self-initiated) at the holy website of Badrinath of Himalaya,and taking the name Swami Amar Jyoti (Swami– Knower of the Self; Amar Jyoti– Never-ceasing Light),He came down into the plains of India for His God-given mission to the world. The first Ashram Gurudeva established was Jyoti Ashram,under Ananda Niketan Trust,located in Pune,Maharashtra,India. Throughout the years after leaving house,His mom had actually continued searching for Him and awaiting His return. In answer to her prayers,He settled in Pune where she could be near Him.

In 1961,He accepted a deal by a devotee to visit the United States. Once again,He took a trip unidentified,though He quickly attracted lots of who had actually never seen such a holy man. Ultimately He was convinced to develop an Ashram,and Sacred Mountain Ashram was founded in 1974 followed in 1975 by Desert Ashram under Reality Consciousness,a nonprofit company that serves as a lorry for Gurudeva’s work in the United States.

The spiritual awakening in the world that Gurudeva reveals is the remarkable fate of humanity,once devoid of our restricted identity of self. Lovingly and continually,He continues to uplift and purify each people for this awakening,for His method is the ancient relationship of the Master to the disciple,the candle light lit straight from the burning flame of Reality. Prabhushri continuously reminds us that we are at a breakthrough into a new age,where religions will be changed into direct awakening and communion with our Highest Source. Like a mom whose love knows no bounds for her child,the Master guides and nurtures the disciple on his or her own course to excellence,revealing in Himself the achievable Reality of God Consciousness.

After 4 decades spent in continuously taking a trip,providing Satsang and Retreats,developing Ashrams and assisting numerous souls to greater consciousness,Gurudeva took Mahasamadhi– conscious release of the mortal body– on June 13,2001 in Louisville,Colorado. According to His wishes,His Asti Kalash (urn containing Spiritual Remains) was brought back to Jyoti Ashram by disciples from India. Within a year,a Samadhi Sthal in the form of a pure white marble pyramid was created for long-term consecration. It has therefore end up being a beacon Light,a place of trip and meditation for all who are blessed to get in there.

The commitment of the Samadhi Sthal was conducted during 5 days of fancy Vedic pujas and fire events attended by hundreds of followers,from June 9-13,2002. At the end of the commitment,the Brahmin priest who led the pujas proclaimed the following: “As long as the sun and the moon and the stars and water (symbolic of life) exist,may this Samadhi Sthal be the Illuminator of millions of souls,and may You continue to guide and bless us.” Never-ceasing Light– The Blissful Life and Knowledge of Swami Amar Jyoti
