The law firm continued 2 use small claims court & the previous plaintiff's name 4 every action. (They don't know I know they bought the debt but the 3rd party sent me notice when they sold it.)

We purchased and installed a hydro heating and hot water
We purchased and installed a hydro heating and hot water system in Aug 2012 for $18,700 from a plumbing company (‘Company') with their promise that this system would cut the gas bill by half.We have been in dispute with Company since June 2015 without reaching an agreement.The main issues:1 Despite their information, the gas bills increased by 40%+, although we installed more insulation in the house. So we stopped using the heating unit. Instead we bought small heaters for some rooms and survived the 2015 winter. We were living in the 45 degree F house, after spending $18,700. We will not be able to use this unit at all ever. We live in Pittsburgh.2 The system was incorrectly installed and made loud noise and frequent leakage among other problems. After having the rep from the manufacture and Company examined the situation, they finally fixed many problems but not all. They tried to fix the problems for over 12 months without success. All this time and even now, we are not using the heating unit.3 Although the system was installed in Aug 2014, it was manufactured in 2012. Is it acceptable to install a 2-year old system as a brand new unit? It may even be a reconditioned system, we do not know. The maintenance is required every 2 years, which goes by time, not by the amount of usage. Thus, when the unit was installed, it was already time for maintenance, which costs $250, but we didn't do it.4 We have had faulty thermostat, which only sporadically produced hot water. We had to use electric kettles to boil water to add to the bath tub to bathe twin infants in winter months. The rep from the manufacture came to inspect twice and admitted the faulty thermostat and replaced it. Since then, it seems to be working, although we do not know for certain until next winter.5 One heating element in the room is working throughout the year, including summer months, although the thermostat for heating is set for 45 degree F, which should stop all heating elements from working. This element is very hot, which counteracts the AC unit in the room. This is caused by the faulty heating unit and we have been paying for the extra gas and electricity bills. We cannot switch off the heating because its unit also controls the hot water, which we need throughout the year.We wrote to Company requesting: a refund of our money $18,700 in full plus $2,000 for compensation for the excessive gas bills and our hardship.Company denies wrong doing but offered in Dec 2015: full guarantee until April 2017 and $1,000 towards the 2014 heating cost. We cannot accept this. We need a proper heating for next winter. We need that refund to purchase a different system.What can we do? What legal rights do we have as consumer please?thank youHovy
My son has a car in the shop that the bill is already
My son has a car in the shop that the bill is already $750.00 they added services that weren't approved before being done. The car was checked previously for the service light being on. It indicated a can shaft sensor. They did the $750.00 worth of work without changing the sensor. We picked up the car it broke down and had to be towed back to the shop. Now they say there's oil leaks a timing problem and they want more money. Engine light still on. When it went in there was no oil leak. Engine runs should not be a timing problem! They started at $300, then $750, then $900 then it was $1,900.00 after my son talked to the owner of the shop because he was upset. The owner said they would fix it for the$750 which has already been paid they want additional money now for the timing to be fixed. What legal action can be taken? The shop has 17 reviews all but 3 are bad.
