About this pro
I really appreciate the responsiveness and punctuality of the crew from Revival Energy. Brett was a great sales rep and did an excellent job reviewing the process prior to booking. Every time I contacted them, they were quick to respond and that is so appreciated. Their crew also showed up on time and did a nice job with the install. To date, the AC unit is working great, and we are excited to have it. The only reason I cannot give Revival an excellent rating is because their technician who installed the unit broke my NEST thermostat. The thermostat worked great (nearly 6 months) until after it was removed and reinstalled by Revival's team. The installer simply put the thermostat back up (it was clearly broken) and left it there without informing me it was damaged in any way. I discovered it later that evening when the battery backup on the NEST ran down and the thermostat no longer worked. When I called the Revival team to discuss the issue, they quickly sent a tech back out to look at the thermostat. Unfortunately, his only excuse was that the Thermostat was "defective." Revival would take NO responsibility for mishandling the thermostat and told me it was my problem to take care of. It has been nearly two weeks since the install, and after being told to figure out what to do with the $250.00 thermostat on my own (which they broke) still no one has reached out to me to see if I was able to solve the problem, etc. I find it suspect that their responsiveness and customer care is excellent until a problem arises, and then nothing. I completely understand that accidents happen and in most cases I find myself to be quite reasonable. In this case, however, the technician should have informed me and his supervisor that the thermostat was "defective" or broken - if that was indeed the case - at the time he went to reinstall it. Instead he attempted to cover his mistake and hope that no one would notice. His actions indicated that there was some fault associated with his handling of the thermostat; and therefore, I believe it should have been Revival's responsibility to replace it.Jun 10, 2018VerifiedRobert B.'s reply
We are glad to hear that the AC is working great and that you are happy with the new unit. We are truly sorry that you weren't completely satisfied. We pride ourselves on our great customer service and on finding solutions. The Nest thermostat was working when we tested out the unit and completed the job. You state that we took "no responsibility" yet you also acknowledge that we "quickly sent a tech back out to look at the thermostat." We also installed a temporary thermostat to keep you comfortable while we worked through the problem. A brief internet search showed that wire terminals and power sharing problems (ie adding an AC) are known issues with Nest thermostats and replacing the base piece usually takes care of the problem. We did not mishandle the thermostat, there is a known defect. (see link. This is one of many) https://www.reddit.com/r/Nest/comments/84z76p/issue_with_base_plate_needs_replacement_according/ You indicated to us that the thermostat still had 6 months on the warranty. If we had provided the Nest thermostat, we would have handled the entire warranty claim process. Because we had not provided the thermostat, we requested that you contact Nest for a replacement. Proof of purchase is always required to request a replacement under warranty and you were the purchaser. In an effort to provide excellent service, we offered to install the replacement Nest at no charge when it arrived. We believe our request was reasonable and our offer generous. You told us that, as a Realtor, you were busy during the summer season (we understand because this is also our busiest time of year!) and it was going to be hard to find the time to request a replacement because you had already had some problems reaching Nest on the phone due to long wait times. Before you ended the phone call, you said you would take care of it. We thought that meant returning the defective Nest and getting a replacement. We were waiting for you to let us know when the new thermostat arrived. You made it sound as though you were busy and it would take some time. We knew the loaner thermostat was in place during the wait. We were surprised to learn that you purchased a new thermostat and installed it yourself. Our responsiveness and willingness to help has never changed. We believe all of our installations are a partnership from beginning to end.
