    No, I don't think so. But it was the last time, for about a week. Anyway, all is well now.

    Matt, glad it all worked out for you...sorry you had such a experience!! I don't support DIY repairs for many reasons, safety being at top of list. Couldn't be any more unsafe than the guys working on your system not being able to properly repair it, and then suggesting that you get your own part and install it yourself. Have you EVER consider working in the HVAC trade??

    If You don't have time to do it right, when will you have the time to do it over?

    Glad you got it figured out but I really would give some serious thought to replacing that unit before you leave for Iraq.

    I was thinking the same thing...I am tempted to buy a truck and start working for myself if I can't get anything else to pan out...Been looking around for a cargo style of van for myself, either way I need another vehicle anyway, as my current ride is way too old and rusty.

    That is an aire serv van by the look of it....Do they operate in Canada? I

    I am operating out of Ct. I have been with Aire Serv for 2 years now.

    From a personal perspective Aire Serv has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. I have systems and a plan to achieve my goals both personal and professional. You can contact me any time via the aire serv site, my zip code is 06418 and my contact information is there.

    Hmm You should have known it was wiring problem

    Classic case of wiring problem. As much as you seem to know by your posts. The next time if there is one cut them off and do not let them take your money for what they do not know.::

    I am seriously considering replacing the unit this spring. I will probably only be in this house for another couple of years before the Army sends me somewhere else. I know pricing is a no go on this site and I am not asking for specifics but I would like to know roughly how much should I plan on spending and how long the job should take to complete. The house is about 2400 sqft with a finished basement. It gets reasonable shade in the summer. We are in northeast Kansas.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Should run you anywhere between $1 - $100,000
    Seriously though....no way to tell from here. Pricing is all different geographically.
