    Had one a few weeks ago...

    Guy refused to sign the ticket stating CO leak and dangerous situation... I told him I would have to call the gas co... they would shut off the entire house... no cooking and no hot water. He signed.

    I realize no heat is not comfortable... however why folks take it out on us heat and AC folks is beyond me. We are trying to help... rather than hurt.

    I guess... well never mind... that would be an ARP comment...

    He never declined doing the work, he just stated " I find such things". I would be like hell no I didn't fix that thing.

    That's good. I want a signature also. The last one the lady still wanted to run it, being a pulse they are positive pressure I wasn't to thrilled. I told her she could die or get sick, she told me well I've lived with it this long. She signed the paper but I found out later she ran it. We put a new trane xv95 in within a few days.

    On occasion I will loan someone an elec space heater (after they sign a contract for a new furnace)... however:

    I have taken it apart and dis-abled the high setting. Reason is I do not want a 1500 watt (12.5 AMP) draw on a circuit in their house.

    I explain this to them, and to always plug the elec heater to either a kitchen or bath outlet... Ni issues so far.

    We have around 12 heaters, I tell them to use different circuits if they can, and tell them they will over load and pop breaker or fuse if they have to many running. My bedroom is on a crawl, I made the mistake of putting on in there for my wife to temper the room, now it just runs all night. She is one of them people that are freezing while your sweating!

    Had one today where the customer wanted a quote. When I get there they said "A competitor found the problem!" like they needed a trophy. They wanted multiple estimates on it. It cracked me up because they just acted like it was a secret trap.
    Seeing it was a carrier RTU the first thing I did was pull the blower door and shove the phone in... (Bottom left seam going)

    I could stick my hand in the hole around inducer assembly.
    I would put money on it if it was serviced once in it's life it would be looking like that.

    Good old carrier. Seen that many times. They keep you busy. I heard they are now offering stainless street heat exchangers. Is that true?

    Not sure on that. I know they are like changing a gun clip though. At least they are easy. I do not use their fiberglass gaskets anymore. Just high heat silicone. It doesn't hold moisture like the factory ones... seems to keep them from corroding at Mach 5 in gasket areas.
