I chose a repairman from Angie's List (Park Ridge Appliance), who was reluctant to come out because he said "my experience has been warranty companies don't pay what I charge for a site visit", which is understandable since his fee for that was at least twice what I've been charged in the past for such visits. He also expected immediate payment. I told him I'd cover it, even if there were a shortfall from CAP.

I called CAP, got an agent on the line again almost immediately. He asked how much the bill was and what the problem was with the appliance.

Time 1: dignosed the problem said he needed to order a part
Time 2: week later. Replaced the system board and pressure sensor.
When he left not only did the furnace not work, the AC now did not work. He said he had to order "12 block" I did try and help him out over the phone and found that he installed the system board off so that the wires got pulled out. He also put extra holes in the furnace.
Time 3: a week later he replaced the "12 block" explaining that he had to wait on the part (they sell them at home depot)
When he left it still did not work
Time 4: He came back and found out he had put the wrong wire in. fixed it and left
Checking the furnance I was back to my original problem.
Time 5: 10 days later; No Show
Time 6: 1 week later. Replaced gas regulator. No change.
HERE IS THE BEST PART: Two days after he left we smelled a gas leak! We had someone come out and we found that the gas regulator was installed at a 60% angle of how it was supposed to go in. It was leaking gas!!!!!! (Ill try to post a picture) SO right now we have the gas shut off.
