    Take a look at these pics: The first one is from the front, This is a 3.0 ton heatpump Air-handler that had been installed in-place of a gas furnace by annother company a couple of years ago....




    The second one is the main reason the customer's electric bill was over four times the normal ammount......




    As you can see the old cooling coil was left in place in the ductwork...not attached to a condensing unit at all...it is filthy, and the gap you see in the ductwork was there when we arrived...there must have been two tons of air coming out of this gaping hole!!!!

    How about the nice insulating job here on these returns!!!



    This gas line isn't capped off...there is no high voltage disconnect.....the indoor coil on the heat-pump is filthy because a filter was never installed.....There was a total of 5 supply ducts lying on the ground, blowing into the crawler.....





    The drain was never hooked up...had drained into the crawler all summer....What a huge mess!!!! It's gonna cost her a bundle to fix it...Have fun fellas!!

    Angry That's so bad it's not even funny

    OMG!

    what a shame...

    Don't forget to check for the correct size service to the a/h and that the circuit breakers are correct size.

    Are permit's req'd for a changeout where you live? Was the elctric co involved (here they will pay the cust $500 to change from gas to electric)


    those hacks should do jail time/community service for that job

    I thought I broke it! I uploaded the pictures of our Cracker Christmas Dinner, and when I returned to the thread, no one's pictures would work!

    It may cost alot to have these repairs made but think how much it has cost to run the system this way for all of those years.
