    If our guys set that unit that close to the wall they would be fired in a second. The lead installer shouldn't of let that happen. If he doesn't get fired I would definetly make him pump the unit down and reinstall it away from themwall so it can be serviced. Have him do it of course on his own time without pay....

    Are you having massive coil problems with the 410a coils?
    The company I worked for used to install the most 17-18 SEER 2 Speed HP's in south central Texas, but our failure rate is nearly 80%!

    Looks good brother.

    Was that transite flue pipe in the first picture? I've only seen that stuff once, seems like you see it all the time!
