"You dummy. That nail's for the other wall." [Smack]
A little 'duck' tape will fix that for you.
"I though you said crossing the beams would be bad."
If you want to get political, please do it in the ARP Forum. That is the place for it, this is not.
Probably paid by the job, and expected to do some ridiculous number per hour. 5 Min? That would mean at least one less stop today.

A Carrier 80% 220,000 BTU? :-)
Love the romex snaking up to the ceiling. Why didn't he go straight to the panel? Then they could hang laundry on it.
Uh, guys? That's not for cooling. It's to keep the flies out.
Sorry, that was supposed to be "kool-aid".
Why is that "par" for the government inspector but the private contractor who created the mess isn't representative of all installers? Oh wait.. I remember. Because all government regulation is...
RE Pics #6 & 9 -- floor joists -- don't they believe in cross-bracing 'round yer parts??
(Not that it's a big concern compared to that HVAC abomination.)
Man, Mike Holmes would just piss in his...
Flat picture, no depth. That's not a T. It's a coupling in front of a 90.
At least he was nice enough to leave you some slack in the lineset.
Never know when you might need to move that unit around.
You simply do not understand Shin-Fu.

So I quoted the suggestion from JAH0983 that he lie to the owner (which two others objected to as well), and gave examples of where he might be on the receiving end of such "advice"; and *I'm* the...
I'm glad you do. But five other guys on this thread (five!) said to sell him a new furnace rather than screwing a few sheet panels back together.
No, I don't lump all techs together. But the...
And Mr. Transmission could probably convince you that you need a new one rather than changing the fluid.
And Mr. Geek could probably convince you that you need a new computer rather than replacing...
Could you vent a condensing furnace up the old chimney?
If not, would the extra efficiency (10%?) pay for both the higher equipment cost and extra labor?
You guys give 'pros' a bad name.
I had a similar situation -- from the homeowners point of view. I had a reputable H&A firm out to do an annual inspection. I mentioned to them (two guys to do...
I don't believe that is possible. Current geo systems are already at more than 50% of theoretical efficiency. Improvements will be made -- but not doubling today's efficiency.
I know that's...
I'm not sure which is worse: running that with someone there, or running it with no one there.
I was about to suggest you should have blocked off the far third of the burners when I realized that...
Is that a '56 Chevy in the corner?
Randy, insulating the ductwork would save the tenant money, not the landlord.
Whatever happened to judges who would force landlords to live in their own units as punishment?
