Denise Richards

Sues A/C Installer --

I'm SO Heated Right Now

Denise Richards
has been sweating balls in her giant L.A. mansion -- claiming contractors she hired completely botched her air conditioning system and more ... and now, she's filed a lawsuit.

Denise -- who's been working on her house forever -- is suing a bunch of contractors, claiming they not only ruined her A/C, they also botched the electrical layout of her home, destroyed her roof, and demolished areas of the house they weren't supposed to ... just so they could charge her a premium to fix them.

And what's worse ... Denise says the contractors blew through their budget, racking up more than $3 million in charges for renovations that should have cost $1.6 million.

As a result of their crappy work, Denise says temps in parts of her house -- where she lives with Brooke Mueller's twins as well as her own kids with Charlie Sheen -- now reach 90 degrees on hot days, there's no ventilation, and she's got sewer gases in her attic ... the list goes on.

It's unclear how much -- if any -- Denise has already shelled out to the contractors in question, but she's now suing for more than $1,000,000 in damages.

The contractors had no comment.

I'm Team Denise. She must be some special kind of woman to love and nurture five children at the cost of her own career; unheard of in tinseltown. I hope she gets millions.

Typical contractors, sees a single woman and tries to get as much money as they can out of her by over charging and taking twice as long as normal.

You never pay the full amount until the work is correctly done. She obviously need Angie's List! Also never pay by the hour- only for the specific job. Good luck to her!
