    I agree.

    Problem is, the temp. repair stays in until it fails cause HO too cheap to fix it right.....

    Then its our fault it failed again.
    I fully support the military and the War on Terrorism.


    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    I don't expect anything. I just do my work and try to get home before the sun goes down

    that's why. you know what happens, when it's 97 degrees and the H.O. is sweating his **s off, we get blamed, especially if another company gets the call... most guys around here will blame the previous company. now the H.O. will be paying THEM for a job I should've done anyway. It's a no-win for us. so,i change out the unit- it's done right, and while the H.O. may not be happy in the short-term, he wont be pissed when his repair fails. i would rather be the guy who is know as "not the cheapest,but he does good work" than the guy who "charged me $xxx.00 and it failed again 2mos. later,so I called someone else. that unit was bad and he knew it". It depends on the customer of course.

    All that should fly out the window . This is a repair for a family member. Should the unit be replaced ? Absolutely . Will it be ? Probably not this season .

    Where are you located? I have several older condensers that still work fine. If you live close enough and can show some proof that you are certified you can have one.
