    DAMN!!!, seen that crap several times, it"s never a pleasant conversation afterward.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    I figured this was normal. I see this 3-4 times per year though not this bad. I cleaned it up with a stick and it worked. A digital t-stat will not last 4 monthis in this enviroment. I have tried it, I know. (I need another job).

    One of my techs went to a 2 year old install, found the same problem.

    I yanked him out of the house so fast it wasn't funny.

    Warranty is now void and we will go back only after they show proof of extermination and professional house cleaning.

    I can relate.............cat piss is by far the worse............when you can smell it on the porch, you know there is a big problem!

    Was it in one of those houses where you lay down a tarp while you do the work, to protect yourself and your tools from whatever the hell is on the floor, and intentionally leave the tarp behind?
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    that's no lie. I had one ike that. person worked at the animal shelter. when they were supposed to put down a dog or cat they brought them home. 3 bed room shouse all beds rooms full of animals not including the ones running around. Roaches so thick (florida palmetto bug style roaches) they were out in the day light. I left the tarp there and told the boss what was going on and that I wouldn't go back until they cleaned it up. He agreed.

    update.... Went back to the home again today.. (No Heat) I looked so hard for a issue in the control box.. No dice! T-Stat bad again. I go to the truck and put my tools up and put on rubber gloves and 2 screwdrivers and a new Honeywell t-stat. I don't know how long it will last I just hope it last till they leave. OH.. They now seem to have at least a dozen outside cats.. Just keeps getting better all the time.
