Disconnect is too far behind unit.
Is that you by the unit .. j/k
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.
No, mullets aren't my thang, yet................

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.
This is prolly not one Im gonna fight
perhaps he'll come off the 1 year maintenance

just an opinion.
I saw you had Trane on the van why not Trane?
Ride hard on a Harley!!
"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...
