Customer Question
We are having problems...

We are having problems that we can not fix with our Nest Thermostat. We wish some one could come to our house and fix it. We did not ask for this system and would very much like it fixed or bring back our old system.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

I have no idea. I think the thermostat is messed up.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No I expect someone that puts them in service to come out a fix.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No just tell me when some one can come a fix our sytem or return our old system since we did not ask for this.
