    Today the death toll has risen to over 80 because of the heat and humity.110 to 115 everyday.I've been on a few second and third opinions and I've found about 25 percent were told they had bad compressors when all they needed was a run cap or something small.I saw Payson's post about A/C stings in Phoenix.I will call the news station in my area and see if they would do something.You can fix A/C and you can cure thives but you can't fix stupid.

    Stings do nothing for "any" of us but hurt this whole industry
    by making all of us look like crooks so if you do that it will only hurt you, unless during the sting they make sure they post a big sign up to call thoglow because he is a honest guy.

    I dont think so ,MrBill.

    I think its just ashamed that it takes being on the news to find a remedy.
    But I'm still glad they do it.

    Sorry did'nt mean to get the blood pumping so early Mr Bill and MR perkins but how do you feel about thives?When I was off in the millitary back in 1990 someone ripped off my mom just like the crap I see today.You are probably right hidden cameras are not the answer but what is?I do know one thing I will never work in another PRO pay system again Been there done that.

    I do think it does put everyone at risk.Honest company owners with guys that might have an dishonest employee and not know it could really hurt his bussiness.Now that is the bad part.

    I agree. The last thing you want to do is have a negative perception of the HVAC business as a whole broadcast to customers in your area. A customer doesn't know if you're honest or not, that's why word of mouth is important. But shining a negative light(sting) on HVAC does noone in this industry any good. JMO.
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    Yea, that would be the real kicker, if a tech wearing a NATE patch was caught condemning a compressor for a bad compressor.
