Warm to the touch? I think I see two 16ga extensions feeding 2 coolers each? How long are the cords? Why is the floor clean and where did the dust bunnies go?
We all know this is not the best installation. We also all know that these are hiding out behind equipment at too many ma and pa convenience stores, so I just do a quick "hands-on" and if I can hold on for an extended time, I just let the owner know that this is a hazard on his ticket and leave. If it is smokin' hot we have a meet-with-vishnu moment.
I used to try and explain it to them but it's like talking to a brick wall and when I go to the back and see the worn out breaker panel feeding everything I just give up. One time I was recovering refrigerant from a burn out and my recovery unit was bouncing all over the floor. After some investigation I discovered that the outlet the equipment was on and I was using had 240 volts going to a 110 outlet!
hydra- I've got one better then yours, I had a building engineer wire a 120 duplex outet with 277 volts so he could test light fixtures and a helper plugged a buffer into it. He pulled the switch and it blew up in his hand. The outlet wasn't marked or any warnings posted.-GEO
Once in a while everything falls into place and I am able to move forward, most of the time it just falls all over the place and I can't go anywhere-GEO
How ridiculous! Can't believe they didn't have the same color wire....how insulting.
Seriously, is that rat crap all over the floor? problem soon to be solved. Just stick a wire under a trap with Grey Poupon (yeah, the good stuff on they way out)
Why do I only get a HVAC license when reality is I'm a plumber, electrician, counselor and financial expert once I'm working on someone's equipment?
Which makes more sense to you? CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10% ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%
