By the way, the system will automatically ask for a phone call. By no means are you required to accept it.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. In your case, you have some options for this kind of work and I'll lay them out for you:
1. You could sue for breach of contract. A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to perform their promises in the agreement. If the builder did a substandard job in putting in the AC, then they did not perform up to their expectations. You could sue for the difference between what you paid and what it costs to fix it.
2. You could sue for negligence. Negligence means that the builder owed you a duty of care, breached that duty of care, and caused you harm as a result. Because the builder failed to perform their duty as required in the contract, any harm you suffered (either from the mold or from having to replace the item) you could recover your damages as a result.
Generally, working these things out in small claims court is often the best idea. The reason is because a judge would be able to hear your issues quickly and decide likely in your favor. If you need a replacement unit for the window in the meantime, you could click here.
