    No silly, isn't it obvious? It's in backwards and the wrong brand.
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

    It's actually a small local city hall. I got the call the previous night, scheduled for 1st call AM today - from our new HVAC- challenged dispatcher. It read "no heat, previous tech found unit frozen and advised shut down until warmer temps."

    So I immediately called and asked "so it's a no cool, right?" No..."it's a no heat." Are you sure? She's sure.

    {{{[[[SIGH]]]}}}

    I have no idea why the old blower motor was sitting there when I popped the blower door - just thought it was a funny shot. Cycled the furnace on and off repeatedly (an old Lennox whisper heat), temp rise, cap, wheel, filter etc. and finally called a councilman, alderman or whatever and asked who reported it, what did they experience etc and promptly find out it was a no cool after all...

    It was 46* out. Reschedule till warmer temps. Which turned out to be later this afternoon - we went from 46* to 86* today and are currently facing down another cold front and possible round of tornados.

    I'm trying to be patient as I'm only two years in myself - but I'm catching myself cursing the dispatcher like I'm an old salty tech. I have no idea what I'm responding to sometimes and have taken to just confirming "in route" and just dealing with what I find. Pays the very same and actually adds hours by the end of the week.

    Ya dumb bipolar weather....

    You might change your approach when you arrive to a call.... One of my favorite first things to say is "tell me a story...." You just never know what they might say next.

    I dealt with that with my dispatcher. Hes also my dad <g>

    Sometimes he'd tell me where the call was ....like golden pheasant Dr off main street.

    Turns out its golden feather Dr across town! I finally asked him to only give the address and ill confirm before driving!

    No doubt...but when it's commercial or government, and you are let in by someone who's sole job is to point the way and turn on lights - the info is lacking. I'm sorry...I expect a dispatcher to at least determine whether the customer wants to be hot or cold. She's a former emergency dispatcher so...burglary, fire, medical...which is it?

    Whatever...I'm used to no heats and no cools in the same 5 hours here...

    It's all well and fine - didn't mean to rant.
