Let me say lisag my comments were in no way pointed at you.

I've passed several contractor names on to my mom, so hopefully someone can assist her. If I lived closer than 4 hours away, I would drive down to look at it, but with work and home problems of my own (we got a LOT of rain up north!), it's impossible to make that kind of trip.
I've also been trying to get her to sign a contract with a reputable contractor (as I do for my home), so that they can check the system twice a year and also, so she can enjoy other aspects of a maintenance contract, like priority scheduling if there's a problem, etc. Maybe she'll listen to me now.
