    Install vs service

    Found this pain in the butt today. Had no room to get to the gas outlet port and thank god the igniter tested good. This was not installed by the company I work for. The company that installed it is now out of business.Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1350435677.195372.jpg

    I hate those carrier/paynes. A company around here installed a bunch and apparently had about 50 HXs plug up

    From all the teflon pipe dope- looks like the valve has been changed. Oh- and that flex in the cabinet is illegal!

    Check again pctech. It isn't legal here either. CSST is legal to terminate in the box, but not a flex appliance connector. There is a difference. Your right. Must pass through an insulating bushing.

    I do not understand the title of your post,"install vs service". Are you a service guy *****ing about a install guy or visa versa. Looks like a service guy replaced that valve to me. I happened to do both and was just wondering why service always wants to put down install,especially from same company. Just curious.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    I have been in this industry for 30+ years and there has always been this service vs. install barrier. I think its because service guys think they can install better and neater. The only trouble is that a service install might be neater, it takes 2 times longer. There are some guys, like you, that can do both, I am saying most can't.

    I've done both mainly service though. I've heard the words "I won't have to service it." And with being that said is were most of the Battle comes from. The company I work for the installers a service guys get along pretty good.

    If a service guy with any real experience used all of that tape and blue junk on a gas line which sees almost no psi.....he needs to learn how to wrap tape correctly. And for god's sake, that blue junk is my last choice for pipe sealant, especially on steel & alum. Rectroseal #5 much better on that type of connection. In fact, I do not believe teflon is approved for gas piping!
