    Do you know why....

    We perform clean and checks?

    So we can go back to the customers house and collect our tools we left there 6 months earlier.

    Yeah, that is the truth...

    I realized this morning I left a UEI digital thermometer (less than $20) in someone's attic Tuesday... Oh well.

    Hope I remember it is there next time I go to the house.

    ...so that we can learn to remember to turn on the disconnect after we clean it---but before we're across town from it. I guess it beats the charge one gets when the unit kicks on as you lift the fan top...sigh...

    I'll be surprised if anybody can top this: I once left my clothes on a jobsite! Doing commercial work, I sometimes would slip on some coveralls to keep from getting really dirty and grease-stained. And if it was in a hot equipment room, I would sometimes strip down to my underwear before putting them on. I would find a back corner of the room to hide in to do this. And I would put my keys in my pocket, knowing full well that I would have to make a trip or two (or several) to my truck for tools and such. One especially long, hot day, when I finished up, I was in a bit of a hurry to get out of there. On the way home I stopped to get gas, just a few miles from the site. That was when I realized that my wallet was missing! It took a minute more to realize that it was because I was still wearing my coveralls, and not my pants! I drove back and grabbed my clothes and tossed them in the truck, after making sure my wallet was still in my pants. That job was about a two hour drive from home. Good thing I needed gas.

    Good thing it was not locked and nobody to let you back in...

    Done similar things myself.

    In install, callbacks are how they get their tools back, and the materials left there as well.

    Try posting this under a different heading, like the refrigeration or chiller forum.

    When you do, try to ask more specific pointed questions, chillers are a HUGE subject, do a bit of googling, and post questions about specific things you don't understand.

    Best of luck with your schooling

    I was pleased just last Friday to be returning to a home for a PM that had an ignitor out over the winter. I remember it well because as soon as the ignitor was energized it blew up - must have been touching the burner rack or something. Water heater was right in front of the furnace so it was hard to get a good look and I never had reason to question on all the ignitors I put in prior. I now look with my inspection mirror if there is any doubt.

    Anyway I recalled I did not put the cover back on the switch plate where I took a quick look before resetting the breaker - left the switch hanging three inches off the wall, exposed wires and all. So I was happy we had not been there since, and I made a bee line for that disconnect. No one will ever know - except potentially hundreds of Hvac-Talk members.
