"nd my 20-year-old air conditioner is working like new."
On July 9 our A/C blew in the main house. We had two different companies come out to give us quotes. I will not mention their names because I did not move out here to make enemies.
The first guy said that the whole system needed to be replaced, as the house was 20 years old. He wanted $15,000. After I balked at the price, he called his "boss" and got the price lowered to $11,000! Pretty hefty discount, huh?
The second guy said the same thing, but he only wanted $12,000.
Being patient and prudent, I called Instant Air, on the recommendation of our HOA. Mario came out on July 11. Within an hour, he had diagnosed the problem and told me that only a couple of parts needed to be replaced. The total cost, parts and labor, came out to less than $1100.
I couldn't believe the extent to what the first two guys were willing to go, to scam my 92-year-old parents. I have noticed that there is a lot of that here in Vegas. Shameful.
I highly recommend Instant Air, simply because of their honesty. Mario knew what the first two guys had quoted me, and he could have easily taken advantage. But he didn't. And my 20-year-old air conditioner is working like new.
