CHARLESTON — A Kanawha County property owner is suing an HVAC system company, alleging breach of contract and breach of implied warranty.
Jill Johnson filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Air Comfort Inc., alleging the defendant falsely represented that it had the experience and expertise to perform the contracted work.
According to the complaint, on June 23, 2016, Air Comfort agreed to install a new heating and air conditioning system at the plaintiff's residence, 1801 W. Dupont Ave. Belle, West Virginia, for $5,891.21. After installation through the present, the suit says Johnson has experienced inadequate heating and cooling in her residence and her electric bills drastically increased.
The plaintiff alleges Air Comfort negligently installed the HVAC system by failing to properly connect the system to all parts of the zone of the residence.
Johnson seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, plus interest, attorney fees, court costs and all further relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorneys David A. Mohler and Joshua A. Johnson of Bowles Rice LLP in Charleston.
