Professor Zhang bought a brand air conditioner, which was delivered and installed free of charge. Before installation, the worker said that the original pipe between the indoor unit and the main machine of the air conditioner was not long enough, and another meter of pipe was needed, which cost 120 yuan. When the workers were working, Professor Zhang found that the neighbor's air conditioners of the same brand and model were installed in the same location, but they were not piped. Is there something "fishy" in it

Professor Zhang bought a brand air conditioner, which was delivered and installed free of charge. Before installation, the worker said that the original pipe between the indoor unit and the main machine of the air conditioner was not long enough, and another meter of pipe was needed, which cost 120 yuan. When the workers were working, Professor Zhang found that the neighbor's air conditioners of the same brand and model were installed in the same location, but they were not piped. Is there “ Greasy &rdquo

the pipe is not long enough, more than 100

at about 10 o'clock yesterday, after receiving a phone call from Professor Zhang, the reporter, as a student, came to Professor Zhang's home in a university faculty living community. At this time, the air conditioner has been installed. Professor Zhang and several neighbors are stopping three air conditioner installers from leaving: “ You have to ask your leaders to explain. What's going on& rdquo; The three workers looked embarrassed and said nothing

it turned out that a few days ago, Professor Zhang spent more than 3000 yuan to order an air conditioner of a certain brand. On May 19, the air conditioner was delivered home, and it was agreed that it would be installed on the morning of May 21

in the morning of May 21, three installers came to Professor Zhang's house. Professor Zhang asked them to place the indoor unit of the air conditioner in the corner of the living room and the host on the platform outside the window. One of the workers visually measured the distance and told Professor Zhang: “ The original pipe between the indoor unit and the main machine of the air conditioner is not long enough, so you need to spend another 120 yuan plus 1 meter of pipe& rdquo; Professor Zhang agreed without much thought

don't know, don't know, be startled

when the three workers were working, Professor Zhang visited his neighbor's house downstairs and inadvertently found that the air conditioner bought by his neighbor during the May Day holiday was exactly the same as his new one, the same brand and model, and installed in the same location. The neighbor told him: “ When installing this air conditioner in our home, the original pipe is long enough, so you don't need to add 120 yuan to buy the pipe& rdquo;

“ The structure of the house upstairs and downstairs of our building is the same. According to the design of civil engineering, the corner of the living room and the platform outside the window are the places where the indoor air conditioner and the main engine are placed respectively. The distance between the two should be the same& rdquo; Professor Zhang said: “ The original pipes of air conditioners of the same brand and model should also be the same length. Why should I spend 120 yuan more to buy Pipes? There must be a problem in this? It is suspected of deliberately letting consumers spend more money on accessories& rdquo;

the workers had no choice but to expose the dark side of the industry

the reporter grabbed the windowsill and saw that the pipe between the indoor unit and the host of the air conditioner in Professor Zhang's Xin'an was much longer than the pipe of the air conditioner in his neighbor's downstairs. The excess part was wrapped into a small circle by the workers and bound to an expansion bolt nailed to the outer wall

under the questioning of everyone, a worker bowed his head and admitted: “ We install air conditioners and work at heights every day, which is very dangerous, but the basic salary is very low. The bonus is mainly drawn from the profits of selling pipes and accessories to customers. This is also the tacit consent of the leaders, but we are not allowed to be too explicit. It's not easy for us to find a job. We don't want the money of Duoan's 1 meter tube& rdquo;

“ You are simply deceiving consumers by doing so& rdquo; After listening to these words, Professor Zhang, who has always been honest and serious, became more angry and continued to call the after-sales service contractor of the air conditioner. After a while, the person in charge of the installation team came to the door to apologize and promised not to deceive consumers. Professor Zhang gave up

the profit of linking 10 meter air-conditioning tubes is far greater than the profit of air-conditioning

according to relevant reports, the escalating vicious competition has pulled the profit of household electrical appliances quite low, so manufacturers and after-sales service contractors are forced to make money in different ways, and have an idea on installing accessories, which has become a industry regulation. Behind the overwhelming price reduction advertisements, there is an installation fee that cannot be negotiated. There is even a saying that the profit of the 10 meter long air-conditioning pipe is far greater than that of the air-conditioning

in the same way, the diameter of the smoke exhaust pipe of the range hood is not uniform, and consumers are forced to expand the wall hole when installing it, resulting in the cost - brick wall hole expansion of more than 50 yuan/time, reinforced concrete hole expansion of more than 100 yuan/time; A special faucet and water pipe for washing machine may cost 180 yuan, but if the water inlet pipe of washing machine is compatible with the water pipe at home, more than 10 yuan can be done; The factory standard configuration of the water heater usually only has a smoke pipe and a shower. To complete the installation of the water heater, you need to pay for all kinds of outlet pipes, inlet pipes, extension pipes, elbow accessories. There are also cases where household appliances are “ Open and sell ”, For example, flat panel TVs do not have a base, a rack, or a high-definition cable

the legal profession said that although consumers shouted that they were deceived, the current laws and regulations have not standardized the installation fee, and the consumer association is unable to do anything about it. However, according to the current law, businesses should make clear the possible charging items for the actual installation when selling, so as to protect consumers' right to know
