    The thing is, it’s not legit. Or legal.
    And the other work you posted looks the same or sloppier then this. And those were not your house.
    These poor people don’t have a clue they could have had a better running system from someone much more knowledgeable and skillful.
    And, to add insult to injury, the average consumer will compair your prices to those of a legit company and come to the conclusion that the company must be screwing them and overcharging for their work.
    And the old saying “looks good enough for my house” or “you can’t see it from my house”, well I’ve kicked apprentices off my truck before for saying those kinds of things. I’ve got no ability to put up with such laziness or inability to learn.

    I'm not going to comment anymore on it my last one will be I think it looks more than fine. Check out the Rheem Ruud 35 in tall air handler for tight jobs. There is hardly any room above the unit. Can't tell in the photographs. Nice elbows type refrigerant piping nice filter box and I had a mount that was controls on the wall because the pictures misleading water heaters real close to the unit. I probably wouldn't work for you anyway. And it is my house and I'm not paying anybody to do it

    The funny thing is...
    this guy thinks we're expensive...however he doesn't pay
    1)Insurance fees
    2)Refrigeration license fees
    3)HRAC fees
    4)Welding/certificate fees
    5)ODP fees
    6)Gas license fees
    7)Continuing education fees
    8)Permit fees
    OR TAXES ON JOBS!!!
    There is NO such thing as a rich Refrigeration/AC tech who didn't work his damn balls off.
    Yes i have extra money to treat my family. It's because I work my ass off every single day and every single week.
    I'm on call 24\7 and when I install a system that doesn't work properly I have the tenacity, work ethic and knowledge to fix it!

    Before I became a LICENSED technician
    I had 5 years on the job training
    I had 3 years in school training
    Then I took a MF hard test

    I charge 90$/hr because I've spent as much time in school as a doctor has!

    Guys like you steal from people with a real license and it makes me sick.
