    Where did they go.......

    Got a call for no cool week ago when we had some warm days, bad
    area, find both cu's were lifted. Who ever decides to replace units
    is going to have a tough time, condenser lines were broken off about
    8" inside the pvc pipe in the slab.

    I passed on the replacement, figured either me, or my tools were
    not survive.

    When you get that "no cooling" call, does it ever occur to you that the client never looks outside to see if anything is "unusual"?

    That may be asking to much of the client.

    More like the client took them to the pawn shop then called you for sympathy of their loss.
    If you're too "open" minded, your brains will fall out.

    I have wondered that at times, but no question in this area. A duplex
    a few doors down was hit also, only had one missing though.

    I have had the no cooling calls were the home owner never had a/c installed. they figured when they bought the house they said the new furnace was a/c ready and the thermostat said cool on it so they had a/c.

    What you couldn't pull the old copper from the inside? Or run new through the attic then down the wall?

    Yep.

    You can likely cut the lines inside and push them through far enough to reconnect. Add a foot or so inside.

    I would probably quote them two new systems with line sets and be done with it. The old A/H might have to come out to get to the line set anyways, and depending on the age of the unit, it might be their best option...
