    What do you think of this lol

    My company was called out to an apt complex and this is what we found.
    The maintanence supervisor was the one installing the new cond units
    this was not the only one like this. this one was a 2007 13 seer cond unit hooked up to a 1977 seer rating unknown

    A member from your company did this? Now I know why people make jokes about Goodman installations with pickup trucks lol... It looks like that thing was just hacked in. They could've made it straight at least, but that might require the installer to spend some time working with the copper rather than just sending it straight through that crack.

    No someone from my company DID not do this.
    It was done by the maint. supervisor from the apt complex that called the company I work for. If some one from My company did this they would not have a job anymore.

    They sell Goodman units off of eBay you know; I wonder if he got it there.

    Just curious, what did you tell the apartment complex about what you saw? Are you going to clean it up/match it or anything?

    Does that indoor unit even work?

    We told the supervisor about the crappy install and offended him b/c we didnt know at the time he was the installer.

    No the indoor unit doesnt even work the wiring is all burnt up

    we told the apt complex that they needed to change the indoor unit and they said that they would do it

    we went back out the next day to run some more tickets for them and had a hard time getting someone to sign the workorders so we havent been back since.

    That's some fine work there. Did he run the lineset through the door opening there?
    That's funny. He couldn't insulate the suction line, or even have enough copper to run it through a hole in the siding yet he was proud enough to install a liquid line dryer?
    Oh that's right... Goodman's have a Liquid Line Dryer inside each new condenser. Ooh, that means he's now got TWO Liquid Line Dryers in series on that fine biatch!

    this is at a apartment complex, oh no, there is always some punk kid up to no good who is going to open that door and slam it shut until it goes all the way in, thats when it will be hilarious.

    everyone knows right from wrong, and it shows the guy just did not give a crap. He could of done simple non expensive things to make this look better, such as using a tube bender and cutting out that corner of the door.

    That's not necessarily true. I'm not defending this but I'm pretty sure he doesn't know right from wrong. Just so you know it was common for the "big" suppliers for apartment complexes to say everything would be fine with installing new cond on old air handlers. I heard it several times from my supplier and would have never known any better if it wasn't for starting an HVAC/R program and joining this forum.

    Just my .02
