Air conditioning bills have us sweating

Glad to see the heat wave is finally leaving; yet, I am very disturbed by what the air and heating companies have done to us during this time.

I don't know how many air conditioning companies were called for help during the wave, but what scares me is how much the customers paid for the help they needed.

I am concerned, because every call I made was a $55 to $70 charge just for them to show up at your door!

Then, I was stunned they would charge $75 to $90 per pound for Freon, which costs them no more than a R22, or a cheaper green friendly replacement R410A under $89 for a 30 pound tank.

WOW! I feel bad for the elderly and poor who already were worried about their utilities, food, rent or mortgage! Please call your representatives about this gouging!!!
