In August 2011 Reliance Home Comfort had a proposition of providing service for both my home furnace and airconditioner for a monthly fee. Two months free coverage but no service during that period. After the two month waiting period was up I telephoned for service three days in a row and was asked to enter a 16 digit account number (?) I waited each time for over an hour and never received a response. Since I was leaving the country for five months I called in a proper furnace company to service and clean both my furnace and air conditioner.
If the 16 digit number represented to Reliance an agreement as far as I was concerned they were in default of the agreement. Since then I have received monthly requests for payment, threatening letters and unpleasant calls from collection agencies. I did at one point call their call centre in India and was told that they could not cancel the agreement until I settled the account. This is clealy a scam and I have no intention of paying but am curious to see how long the harassment will continue.

    To whom it may concern. Please read these reviews carefully. Some companies offer the pie in the sky by phone and then follow-up with a written agreement which does not reflect the telephone discussion. I cancelled the plan before the effective date after reading negative reviews. Thank you guys and gals for your diligence. i signed up with a firm I can trust
