    Another cheaper bid

    We lost this job to another company. I wonder why they were so cheap?

    I do three kinds of work.
    1 - Good - 2 - Fast - 3 - Cheap
    Pick two

    when did carrier stat using a round exhaust hood?

    I'm with the rest, seen alot worse. since that control section is the top 8" of that left hand side, the intake on the york isn't an issue of clearance...annoying as crap you bet.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    The single wall galvanized vent pipe contraption is pretty special...
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
