I hate going through a lawsuit with a Heating, Ventilation and A/C supplier in my town

I never imagined that I would ever need to get into a lawsuit, but it happened.

Near the end of last Winter, my furnace stopped working.

I had extra money for times such as this one, so I was prepared. I called my local Heating, Ventilation and A/C company so I could tell them the issue and get someone out to my house to fix my furnace. When the Heating, Ventilation and A/C repairman came, he gave me good reason to not let him fix the furnace. This guy looked very unprofessional and unkempt. I tried to remind myself that looks can be deceiving, so I let him proceed. I would periodically check on him while he worked on the heating and cooling system, and every time I looked, the guy was on his phone. I didn’t see anything being done to my heating and cooling unit! I finally spoke up and he decided to do some work. He took the furnace apart, figured out the problem, and fixed it. I was shocked by the speed he put into it all at the end, but then he tried to charge me for the amount of time he spent at my house. I was not about to have that. I wasn’t going to pay for the man to spend over half the time on his phone. I called his boss, and that conversation ended with the boss threatening to sue if I didn’t pay for the Heating, Ventilation and A/C work. I called my lawyer, and we went to court to discuss my payment for the repair of the Heating, Ventilation and A/C unit. It’s something I’m still going through, I’m hoping that I win this because the bill I’m expected to pay should be cut in half, since it only took the guy 10 minutes to fix the issue.
