Complaint / review / scam report

On February 2, 2012 a sales person from Ontario Energy Group knocked on our door and told my wife that they needed to inspect our furnace and hot water heater. They needed to be checked to see if it met new government regulations. He presented himself as a government official on official business. He also said that he needed to see our energy bills. My wife let him in and he inspected the hot water tank and furnace. He told her that they were terribly in-efficient, old and needed to be replaced. My wife told him that she would not make any decisions and to come back when I was home. The sale person returned. I asked about the company he worked for. He stated that they are certified with the government of Ontario to inspect and replace heating and cooling equipment that is not energy efficient. He went on to inform me that our energy bills are way to high and our furnace and hot water tank are not efficient and they are old. I informed him that he is misrepresenting himself as a government inspector and he is intentionally lying to people and committing fraud. Our home has had a full energy audit conducted by a legitimate company and has been fully renovated. Our home is 90 years old and nearly 4000 square feet and our heating bill in January was $140. This is very good compared to other homes like ours. Our furnace is high efficiency and our hot water tank is 3 years old and also high efficiency. This company is misrepresenting themselves and intentionally committing fraud.
