Reliance Home Comfort appointments for maintenance

I got furnace maintenance and water heater fault service scheduled 4 times but no body showed up. 3rd time got the service for water heater but not for furnace.
After 3 appointments when tech did not showed up I made complaint to Reliance Resolution department.
They told me tech did call me but I did not reply to tech that is why tech did not come. That was not true because during all 3 scheduled appointments I was waiting for tech at home.
If tech called me he could have left message for me, I did not receive any call, for confirmation I can provide phone company call record for my phone number.
Anyhow Reliance resolution department offered me 2 months compensation in my monthly service fee(44.00$) which I accepted and they also rescheduled appointment for Dec 10th 2016.
On Dec 9th 2016 I called Reliance Customer service and ask to mention in my record for tech who is coming for maintenance service on Dec 10th do not call me just come I will be waiting
at home. I also informed customer service that if tech did not show up this time then I will cancel my service with Reliance and Reliance will be responsible for this.
Reliance Customer service ensured me tech will come in time and will not call, will just come to my home for service.
I also have appointment reminder emails sent by Reliance System for Dec 10th 2016.
On Dec 10th when appointment scheduled window time expired 7 to 11:00 I called Reliance Customer service at about 12:00PM, I was shocked by listening that reliance don not do the maintenance
So there is no appointment scheduled for me today.
appointments on weekends in Dec in Winnipeg area, I told customer service that I talked with customer service yesterday on Dec 9th and she can see the notes on my file, she confirmed
I called and I was confirmed about this appointment by email as well as by Customer Service when I called.

This drama is going on from last two months, I am frustrated now and thinking to cancel these service by Reliance.

Reliance Home Comfort tankless water heater

I've complained about this for over a month now! No resolve what so ever. The day of install the installer asked if I had extension cord to run this unit. I said move the plug it unsafe and looks horrible running extension cord. He replies I don't do that. I contacted my sales rep Liz Norton...who is untrained and incompetent to do her job. Asked for an electrician to get this done...oh we don't do that and If I payed for electrician I would get a credit. I said no because I'd be out of pocket. If I was informed before hand I wouldn't have installed this unit. Now I have a dangerous situation! I have a family and insurance company looking at this as a hazard. I have been contacted by Customer service...but the resolve call back never came! This is unbelievable! I am so disappointed in this matter...what if this over loaded the cord and burnt my house down...and with my kids here...i will be contacting my Lawyer and Local Fire Dept to take this to next level.

Reliance Home Comfort plumbing

I needed a dishwasher installation. A new one replacing an old one.

Reliance charged a $100 diagnostic fee! To diagnose what exactly they could not explain.

Then having waited 4 hours for the service window, the serviceperson arrives without a hose. A hose to connect a dishwasher - not something unique or special or for a specific brand - no hose.

So, after 4 hours of my life I am out $100 and have no dishwasher connected.

That merits a call to customer service. Which leads to being told that they charge the $100 in the event the quote for their services is too high and people refuse to go ahead with the work. Not so much a "diagnostic fee" but rather protection for them which allows them to price their product at a high amount.

They did, very kindly, tell me that if I didnt like it I could use someone else. No, they wont refund the $100.00.

I could go on. Perhaps the woman in customer service who hung up on me will call back? Perhaps they will return the message I left. But I am not holding my breath.

Terrible customer service. Who knows if they are any good at plumbing, for my $100, I did not get to find out.

Reliance Home Comfort air conditioner

I had purchased and installed furnace plus AC with Reliance end of January of 2015. The first summer as I turned the AC on, it did not work, there was no cool air. So I called Reliance and they had sent out a tech on the following day, not the same day, because of course they don't care for our comfort..they should really change their logo! Anyways, the tech said the is a gas leak, so he fixed that and left, 2 weeks later it broke down again and this time no refrigerant, so tech fixed that, and then third time wiring issues apparently, and now the fourth time there is another leak..one technician had told me that well u really shouldn't install anything in the winter because they guys that installed it just wanted to get they Eco out of there so they did a really bad job! Anyways I called reliance so many times about this issue and they obviously don't care..one gentleman had actually said to me well it's not like this is the first time you've bought something and it broke..r u kidding me?wow! Absolutely unacceptable service! Would never recommend u guys to neone!

Same thing aweful service and equipment that doesn't work! If you own your property they probably put a lien on it that you can't get off.
these are rental units and these liens mess up any type of equity of refinance you try to do, i just found out about the lien and now i have problems getting my mortgage refinanced They said i could pay it out for 9750 which is way overpriced for the junk that doesn't work. No they can take the lien off my house.

Reliance Home Comfort undersized centreal air

J let me just tell you about the service I got from reliance home comfort. I bought a new furnace and ac unit from this company in good faith. That was my first mistake. This unit is too small to cool my house down. They lied to me and told me it was a 2 ton unit. I called rheem canada who made the unit gave them the serial number and model number and they told me it was only 1 1/2 ton not 2 ton. The company wont do anything about it to fix the problem I does not take the humity out of the house and can not cool down the whole house. My house is 550 square feet each floor and from what I understand on the internet you need 1 ton per 600 hundred square foot. 550 +550 is 1100 square feet. I told the salesmen to check my old ac unit and my furnace to make sure he was selling my the right size he could not be bother he said a smart air 1000 was plenty big to cool down the whole house like the old one did well I does not so we have went all summer with no ac cause this compay or salemen did not know how to proper size the unit for my house. Also they told me my doors and windows are to old when they are only 2 years old. This company just keeps telling my I got what I got and too bad it wont cool the house down. Their commercial on tv that say we not 100 percent happy till you are is all lies i'm not happy with no ac that will not cool myt house down and they do not care also I did a refural and never got the 100 dollars for the refural. This company needs to be investigated. They do not deliever what they promise. Thank you for your time

I have the same issue with my AC it is not cooling my house properly. They have been out too many times to count now to fix it. I told them its too small and has to work double time just to cool the house a little bit. My hydro usage more then triples when i have the AC running. My furnace whistles the whole time its on as well the tech's tell me its the type of filter it has and there is nothing i can do about it. So i have to listen to whistling when it runs. How fair is that
I also found out they put a lien for $13700 on my house without me knowing its way overpriced for the trouble i have had with these units. So be very careful with this company they are cheat's and liers
NEVER DEAL WITH THEM IF I COULD GO BACK I WOULD OF KICKED THE SALES PERSON OUT OF MY HOUSE SO FAST!

Reliance Home Comfort hot water tank rental - - buyout

We just moved in a house 2 weeks ago and noticed that the hot water heater is rented by reliance. We have no contract or agreement with reliance so considered to buyout. After we talked to three reliance's representatives they told us with total cost of $1649. (hot water tank 1410 + setup 35 + 2 weeks fee + all hst)

This large amount is more than that of buying a brand new one, yet reliance told us there's no warranty.

1. The water heater is 4 years old, installed and used by ex-home owner since jun2012. Right now, a brand new one with the same model is 1300~1409 plus hst, while reliance’s bill is 1445+hst. Renodepot has 2 for 1409+hst at http://www.Renodepot.com/en/gas-water-heater-01355045

2. 35+hst of an account setup fee is also included in the buyout cost, the representative told us, but we don’t quite understand as we never asked them to open an account, however, the representative was not willing to explain this charge further;

3. Even with the total cost of 1649, there’s no any warranty or coverage for this equipment.

When asking the representative more questions, representatives were extremely impatient and were not willing to explain the detailed charges of the bill. They just simply repeating the whole number (1649) again and again.

Thanks.

Reliance Home Comfort new furnace not working properly, cannot get anyone to come and look at it

We had a new furnace installed on Thursday March 17th and within the first hours of completion we noticed that the furnace is blowing cold air and not heating properly. Today is March 20th and we are freezing as the furnace is irregularly blowing cold air and we have contacted the number we were given to get someone to come and look at it but no luck. One technician "guessed" the problem over the phone instead of coming home and confirming what the problem is. The 1-866 number for the Brampton branch was not helpful this morning, she told us that she cannot get a hold of the contractor and she will mention this to her supervisor. We were not allowed to talk to any supervisors on the phone, we were not given any email addresses or numbers where we can reach a higher authority. We chose this company over Enercare based on their furnace price and payment plan and the guarantee that the sales guy (Jamie Lanys) gave us on service and maintenance. It has been only three days after we signed a contract for a brand new furnace for $5100 plus tax and we have had nothing but problems. We cannot even talk to anyone to get help. This morning we called the technician who installed the unit and gave us his own number, it sounded like he hung up on us and the second time it went to his voicemail. We do understand it is weekend however their promise is to provide service 24/7 and we don't think they follow their motto " we are not comfortable until you are" ! We have been trying to find a contact other than the phone operator at the end of the 1-866 number however we are not able to. At this point we are extremely unsatisfied with the product and more so with the service and we would like to cancel our agreement IF we can find someone to talk to about this.

Thank you for your help.

Reliance Home Comfort new furnace install

Hi, on the end of January I had a non- working furnace I called my service people who informed me that the part isn't covered in my plan so I called reliance and had them put a high end furnace into my home they installed it on the 4 of Feb. 2016 on the 10th of Feb. I noticed that my home was losing heat so I thought someone may have adjusted the new digital monitor, so when I found the time I started to read the manual on how it works, a few day passed and I realized that I couldn't fix it myself so I called reliance demanding that a manager call me back asp cause I shouldn't have to be calling back the company for repairs on a brand new furnace by this time it was the 14th of Feb. They still haven' contacted me as of this day I had a serviceman come to the house on the 15 and stated he fix the problem and left not even 15 minutes later I was right back to where I started so I called back right away and was told someone will be back to my home between the hours of 7-11 pm I had a no show so again I called reliance to find out I was lied too and no service call was put into the system so again I demanded that management call me about this problem so in the 16th of Feb. Finally they sent someone over again to try to fix the problem yea it ended up that I had yet another defective part on this so-called new furnace and still no call from management as of yet this time the etc stayed to make sure that the part he placed into this new furnace was fact workable I wrote into reliance customer care dept requesting that the manager for my area to call me about my furnace and still nothing I ended up with a message on my answering machine asking me to call customer care and have them help me with any of my complaints what is wrong with the manager of my area calling me and either removing this not so new furnace that they are trying to pass off as new or finding out what went wrong and offering me an incentive to keep this one that has already has had two service calls on it in less than two weeks after it was installed someone best get back to me on this one this is unacceptable to be taking advantage of a struggling single mother of five from the city of Hamilton
my contact information is as follows Evelina Jeffrey 167 Gibson Ave Hamilton Ont. number to be reached at is as follows [protected] or [protected] it has been over a month now let's see how long this complaint will take to get answered

Reliance Home Comfort goodman furnace

Feb 10 2016: 5pm placed a call to Reliance to report that the furnace was having difficulties igniting. I was told by the woman from the call centre that Superior Home Comfort would call within 3 hrs. I explained that this needed to be fixed tonight as the temperature was expected to go down to -21. Also explained to the lady that this furnace is only 4 years old and has needed a new flame sensor every January since it was installed.
8:25pm: called Reliance again because I had not heard from Superior Home Comfort. The lady told me that an appointment was scheduled for tomorrow and that I should expect a call by 9am. I told her this was not acceptable, my house was getting cold and I wanted the furnace fixed tonight. She suggested I get some heaters to help heat the house. I asked her to contact Superior home comfort again.
Dave from Superior Home Comfort called at 8:37 pm...he was at my house within 15 minutes, changed the flame sensor and was on his way by 9:05. He told me that he did not get a call from Reliance until 8:30pm. He explained that he may have gotten a fax at 5pm but that he was not at the office to receive it. They should have called his phone right away.
Thank you Dave for the quick response!
Not happy with Reliance customer service.

Reliance Home Comfort service

An annual cleaning service was provided for rental furnace. Our first cleaning on October 20th went well but unfortunately the technician didn't have the right filter so he inserted a temporary filter. He sent an order for the company to send us the right size filter. After several months pass I called service department requesting them to send me the right air filter. Still waiting. I've called 3 times now and getting frustrated. I understand these large filter are expensive but it's part of the rental agreement for them to provide them. All I request is that they send a filter for Smart Air Rack, Carrier as per requested from the work order service call: RCE 7228916. Thank you Denyse Lepage

Reliance Home Comfort I have been billed by even after cancelling their service

Account Number: [protected] We informed Reliance around 10th Dec 2015 that we have sold our house and will be moving out on 15th Dec 2015. We also have it in the agreement with the new owners that the water heater is rental from Reliance. Today we receive an ebill from Reliance asking us to pay for the month of Jan 2016. We called Reliance service department and spoke to a very rude person by the name Naila. She said that we had never informed them of the move and that we would have to pay the bill until today as the company policies have changed and they cannot do anything about it. I then asked her to connect me to her manager. She said taht the supervisor was in a meeting and could not come on the phone. I then requested her to let me speak to the complaints department. She brough someone on the phone by the name of Noel or Noah and she also said the same and refused to even consider that we had called before. It is a shame to see a large company like Reliance Home Comfort steal $28.50 from hardworking people like us. Further there is no guarantee that the account is closed and that we may be billed again next month. Shame on Reliance. Never deal with them again.

Reliance Home Comfort non - stopped being a customer in 2009 - lien was placed on home for no reason

To Whom it may concern: Very Dissatisfied customer that will never buy a service from Reliance again. After a fraudulent mistake by company resulting in time and money wasted. Then after there is a mistake that Reliance / UEI Financial or 2035881 Ontario Inc that is old and not longer used...convenient. So company 2035881 Ontario Inc. Placed a LIEN on my home for $11, 600. On account M178220 and there is a $0 balance on account. Called customer service and was told on Oct 29 that UEI Financial had a LIEN on property from 2009. I was not aware of this until refinancing Mortgage and a project to better home. Was sent to Legal and dealt with AT rep in Legal. I rented a water heater and extended warranty on our furnace and air conditioner. Was quoted for a new HVAC system that was $3000 more then local competitor when AC broke down. I returned the water heater and went with competition. After return of water heater and confirmation I received a final bill for (-$6.78) credit on account. Final notice all good and never received the $6.78? Who is at fault? That was 7 years ago. I talked and emailed to legal department on Oct 29, Faxed and sent in all info on Oct 30, Was sent the letter releasing account at $0 on Nov 16, Nov 23 couriered a BANK DRAFT for $100 out of my pocket to fix a mess that was not mine. The courier confirmed drop off on Nov 24, called Nov 27, emailed Nov 27, 29 and Dec 1. Ms. Thompson has not provided me timelines to complete removal of LIEN. Costing me interest, penalties as I cannot have funds released. The kicker to this all is IT IS NOT MY FAULT! Would be nice to have responses in a professional time frame. Get back to me I need this resolved over 30 days for no reason. Michael Bozzo [protected] [protected]@live.com

Reliance Home Comfort geo thermal

To begin with, Reliance does not offer the least expensive Geo Thermal system in the area, but I trusted the name, so decided to spend more to ensure quality installation and service. What was supposed to be a 2 week job, turned into a 2 month job. They had to install duct work in my house, and the result was crooked and uneven ducts, holes in my floors and ceilings that to this day, do not have a cover on them as they are odd in shape. This is just the beginning...The unit breaks down this July and after 10 hours, yes 10 solid hours of dealing with Reliance on the phone, they submit a work order. 48 hours after I call them, a Reliance Service person shows up to my door. It gets better...I get a sales call from one of their reps and they convince me to buy their annual protection plan. I call last week to set up an appointment, and they promise to show up the following week between 1-5pm. After taking the day off of work, I call them at 4:45pm and inquiring at to their whereabouts, and I am told that they do not service Geo Thermal units. Liz, Employee #1420, gets rude with me on the phone and curtly tells me she will credit my account for the 4 months I have been paying into their service plan, and that yes, indeed, after i have paid almost $70, 000 to them, that they do not service their work. Trust me here, use any other company for a geo thermal unit but stay clear of RELIANCE HOME COMFORT.

Reliance Home Comfort rental water tank

I bought a house in Mar. 2014 that had an existing water tank and I started getting bills from Reliance for the tank rental. I called them in May to talk about purchasing a tank and they informed me that rental would be cheaper at $13.24/month plus tax. So I entered into an agreements with them for a year. After a year and a half, I noticed on my Enbridge Gas bill that I was being Billed for Reliance. So for a year and a half I was billed twice at 2 different rates. When I called Enbridge, they submitted a complaint (takes 45 days to resolve). I also called Reliance to complain. How could they not realize I was paying this account twice? I find this very hard to believe. They offered to reimburse me for the $13.25 a month but refused to make up the difference that I was paying Enbridge. My agreement was with Reliance for 13.25 why should I have to pay 19.99 because they double billed me? They proceeded to give me some Tom Foolery about how although they bought out National - the National Tank in my house is not their responsibility and that is why I have to pay the 19.99. Doesn't make sense. On top of all that, The rental tank had a leak today and tomorrow I have a house inspection being done because I'm selling my house. I booked an appt. this morning. They gave me a ridiculous window of 5 hours (that is outrageous!) who has 5 hours to wait around for a service call. After waiting the 5 hours - they didn't show up! I called and they told me it would be another 45 min. I told them I have things to do they will have to come back at 4:00 p.m. The service guy called me when I was in the middle of an appointment and told me he couldn't come at 4:00 he was getting off at that time. I'm not happy with this company and I have spent hours on the phone trying to deal with this. I'm exhausted. Is there any resolution to this?

Reliance Home Comfort billing

I sold my house and moved at the end of July. I called Reliance in June to inform them I was moving. I paid all my bills, then this week I received a bill from them that was forwarded from my old address. The bill is for a hot water tank rental from my old house. I called them to tell them again that I had moved and that my account should have been closed. They refused to close my account and told me that I owe them what is on the bill. The bill is for the hot water tank rental from October to December. After a while on the phone I was getting no where with them. As it stands my account is still open because they refuse to close it and I dont even live there anymore. I will never do business with them in the future and this issure is still outstanding.

Reliance Home Comfort hot water tank

Reliance bought out the company got hot water tank from. Since the take over I've not been getting the monthly bill, when I call they keep saying it was mailed I should check with the postal service. To add insult to injury (The Reliance Business Model) they charge me interest every month for bills I was never notified of. This company is a fraud.

Reliance Home Comfort billing issue

My name is amardeep toor, we bought this new home from rosehaven builder, 50 rogers trail, bradford on february, 12, 2015 and got registered new account with reliance home comfort and paying our bills regularly on time. We start getting an other bill having same property address in the name of danitza camacho (Reliance account no. [protected]). I called reliance almost every month and was assured that I won't be getting these bills any more. Now I got collection agency notification for due amount of $1, 068.46 all though it is not in my name but it has my property address, I did call reliance home comfort twice in 15 days and also file online complaint. I also requested them to confirm in writing that number one they won't be sending me these bills any more and number two - I don't to be surprise to see any lien on my property etc because even bill is not in my name but it has my property address. It is very frustrating and disappointing that every time I had been given verbal assurance but no concert action had been taken. I hope you understand my worries and will look into this matter and resolved it. Regards, amardeep toor [protected]

Reliance Home Comfort water heater replacement - charges never disclosed before replacement

Hello Consumer,

Hope you are reading this before you change your water heater.

I called in for the leak in the WH by RHC and was attended very well by call centre rep. They advised technician will be sent out immediately the same day, which they did. Technician after looking told us that there is internal leak in the equipment and needs to be replaced free of cost. I asked ia there any hidden charges I will be looking at. He said at the most 25/30 dollars for changing the valve.

Next day the water was to be replaced and another technician from company that services equipment comes with new water heater. Takes out the old one and before installing new one he says that have to replace the overhead pipe for vent, as new building codes are in effect.
Charges 211.00 I asked if I can call RHC, he said after he leaves I should.

So if company says its free rental beware the charges are coming. I will probably change to some other company as feel decieved.

Reliance Home Comfort water heater charge

I had terrible issues with Reliance causing a basement flood costing me $6000 out of pocket for damage. I had a new water heater put in by National Home services. Had them for 5 years no complaints. Reliance bought them out, never received any notice so I returned the water heater and had bought my own one, had it installed as I don't want to ever deal with these incompetent people. Now I am getting letters saying I owe "Reliance" $1222.00 for "breaking the contract" Huh. It states nowhere on Nationals agreement about a time frame or penalties of the water heater. I wont give them a penny. They must think they own you. I had a lawyer look at what I signed and he laughed. They will have to take me to court. Ive called them numerous times and you get nowhere as they are just employees without being able to help. They are a bunch of sharks that should be out of business. They are changing there name as they are getting so many complaints. If you deal with this company be warned of there shark like tactics.

I had an issue with no hot water, the Reliance technician came to repair it - he replaced the gas valve. In doing this he turned off the main water supply which would seem to be something basic. In turning the main back on, he turned it up to full pressure and did not open any faucets (basic plumbing 101). He informed us that our main shut off valve in the basement was now leaking but that he had turned the pressure up and down and found the "sweet spot". Upon him leaving we went to the basement to find the main was still leaking and stripped. In his initial turning on of the water it caused an issue with the toilet directly above on the main floor. This caused flooding from the main floor through to the basement. We had to call the city to have the water turned off at the street! A plumber had to be called in to replace the main ($310). To have the city here to turn the water off and then back on is likely close to $200 (haven't got that bill yet). 2 other fittings burst causing leaks, 1 in my kitchen ceiling, 1 in the basement. Damage to drywall plus replacement and repair costs keep adding up! Completely unhappy and will be having the tank removed. Oh and again the tank quit! That is the third time this year, the first time they didn't show up for the service call, didn't return my calls either!
