update: air channel clearing scams| dolton, lemont
you may remember in early march of 2010, cbs2 news chicago ran a investigative report on air channel clearing scams. channel 2 investigative reporter, pam zekman, reported on how some customers were taken advantage of and overcharged by certain air channel clearing buisnesses.
channel 2 asked four seasons heating & air conditioning (national air channel cleaners association member) to help explain what a expert channel clearing should entail, how much it should cost and how long it should take to understood the air channel system. we were proud to help because we feel illegitimate buisnesses do a huge disservice to the industry. in a time when people want and expect value from expert service buisnesses, offering one price then charging hidden fees is shameful.
the investigative report from the june 8, 2010 – 10 pm newscast was an update of the march report stating that the cook county states attorney was seeking to shut down an air channel clearing buisness. please remember that when you are in search of a reputable, qualified buisness you should seek references, review a company’s status with the higher quality business bureau and look for buisnesses who take the time to correctly train, certify their staff and have memberships with industry groups such as nadca.
