    Really, another one of these!

    This is an apartment complex with 6 buildings and 40 units.

    Every time I come over here it's a joke, a really not funny joke, the worst kind of hacks did the installs.

    I was not spared today on trying to repair this unit, it has a sequencer or relay stuck that's keeping the unit running 24/7.

    Its hard to see in the picture. How is that being held up (It looks like a plastic bag on the floor beneath it)?
    Are they all like that? I'm assuming your company didn't put the water heater in. It looks fairly recent. They deserve a public lynching.

    They screwed some S-lock to the wall horizontally and then screwed a couple pieces into the back of the air handler vertically so they could "hook" the unit on, the poor guy living there has actually been keeping up on the filters but it's supposed to slide out the front, so he's been bending it long ways to fold it in and sometimes it falls out or gets sucked up.

    No we didn't put either in. There have been other units with grossly mismatched fixed orifices or in a couple cases none at all.

    Not every unit is facing the water heater, just 6 or so. On the other building they made the closet big enough that the unit faces the door.

    I agree, people like this shouldn't be allowed to work until they prove otherwise.

    how does that pass code?

    it's not even close to legal, let alone common sense!!!!!
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    For you to run into this frequently makes me believe you pissed off the a/c gods.

    No inspections in this area until 2012, anything went around here as long as it ran long enough to get away!

    Nice supply plenum too. Maybe there is a square to round underneath.

    The plumbers use cpvc on supply water and PVC on waste around here.

    Although, I didn't check if it was PVC or cpvc on this one.

    There's def not a square to round.
