After filing in small claims court, he offered me a refund... Minus $1000 in restocking fees!
Ridiculous! I was awarded a judgment in SCC, which he has yet to pay or even respond to.

Brandon McCollom (Dr. HVAC) is a SCAM ARTIST and I've been taken.
I hired him without doing a thorough enough search to install a completely new heating and air conditioning system in my older home. The total project cost was supposed to be approximately $4,500, but after he took his 60% deposit he stopped responding to phone calls and e-mails. He finally did respond once I had the local sheriff contact him, and I asked for my money back. He said he would, then proceeded to never return another phone call.
After filing in small claims court, I fully expect to get a judgement against him which he will never pay. Lesson learned - I hope you're not checking this forum too late!
Monetary Loss: $2710.
