    Pretty minor cosmetic damage. Not worth the trouble IMO. Maybe there's a better way to fix it, but personally, I'd just fill it it with some paintable window caulk or wood putty and then paint it. 20 minutes worth of work at most.

    As above, I would get some spackle or a similar gap filler and just be done with it. They come in small containers at Home Depot.

    It looks like an Armstrong unit.

    Where are the risers?

    The "It happens." response your contractor gave you was pretty flippant. That sort of damage doesn't happen if you take a half minute to fold a cloth tarp over and lay it over the trim as you're shimmying the new and old units around. Frankly you have to be a pretty obtuse installer not to think about that... in my opinion.

    If that just happened out in the open, what just happened that you don't know about?

    Anywho, it's a question of picking your battles.

    sorry you are missing the clamps for the seal tight, seal tight should be clamped less then 1 foot from the disconnect, The whip could of been ran neater.
    just an opinion.
    OK unit.
    I saw you had Trane on the van why not Trane?

    "Disconnect is too far behind unit."
    my thought also! should be to one side or another.
    if (god forbid) the unit should ever catch on fire
    that you can't safely reach over the unit.

    @ the heating closet,
    I'd just wood putty, sand and repaint.

    best of luck.

    Sorry but the damage isn't acceptable unless you don't really care. it's lazy ness to not protect stuff like that, and worse not to tell you it will be fixed, just my $.02...
