    ^ I don't think the tech was completely clear about what was busted to begin with. The bathroom fan wasn't the issue -- it was the hole in the flue. Swap out a couple feet of pipe and problem solved....

    the hammer next to his foot is the part that slays me.

    ^ I'm in business for myself as well... and I can see both sides of the coin. If I were the HO I'd be thinking "I called for no heat, but paid to fix my fart fan?!". If it were me I'd say fine, I'll...

    How was the issue communicated to the HO? For example, he could have re-piped that couple feet of flue and left the fart fan to someone else...

    Of course, but getting emotional about it on the net is really a bad move. Business owners never come out looking good. If you respond, you should just keep it cool and factual.

    I read the Yelp review.... and to be honest, the guy has a point. If anything he said was true (i.e.: 1/2 hour labor, 50$ material), then the price is high IMO. When he agreed, he probably thought it...

    You're partially right. I made a mistake. The price I mentioned is for one person at a reasonable restaurant in a big city. Several people would be in the 10-20$ range depending on what you order of...

    Installation is free with purchase in China.

    You also forget that there is a huge gap in cost of living between the US and China. A full meal for 2-3 people in a restaurant is only about 4$ in...

    One in 3 AC units in service in the world is made by Gree (a Chinese company). Mini splits sell for very low three digits in China, so yes, even the workers can afford them.

    That unit is definitely Chinese-made... I can tell my the label.

    Right now we have two Carrier triple-split systems, so we are a bit anxious about the noise a standard split system might create. Going to be interesting!

    We discussed the YZH but went with two YZF non-communicating systems. In this climate there doesn't seem to be a justification for the bells and whistles, particularly when it comes to cooling. The...

    The tech who was just here was at the York plant in Kansas and confirm they are making residential units in the US. I didn't ask for details though.

    As you know, I can't discuss price on here, but yes, the price difference is very significant. We are talking about 50% extra to replace both AH's as well.

    We asked the installers about a new AH, and they all said it was not needed. By AH I mean (multi-speed) blower and electric heating coils.

    Right now we are leaning toward the York installed by a local family company in the business for nearly 25 years. All systems (except the Japanese units) would retain the existing...
