i have 2 buddies both work for big nation wide companies mainly residential. he tells me they dont even carry vacuum pumps, on new installs they dont pull vacuums because it creates future work. in a couple of years when the compressor fails yes its under warranty but not the labor! its messed up for the home owner who gets shafted i dont agree with the companies policy. here you come flush the lines and purge then pull good vacuum and the unit last for 10 years no leaks or comp replacement in a way you shafted yourself. honestly if its a random customer they are going to think my unit last 7 plus years problem free because its a new unit not because john went the extra mile to do all the extra's.
