HVAC Contractors kill hundreds of people every year.
So, I guess we kill hundreds of people every year?
Watch this video, and dont forget to leave a nice comment.
This is going to be an interesting and entertaining thread.
Excuse me while I go make some popcorn.
Thats exactly what I thought too
Its been posted here before
Just yesterday I heard a local HVAC guy stabbed a customer with Fluke probes after being asked to add freon.
I punched a customer once because he grabbed me by the arm and almost yanked me off my feet because I was walking away from him after he called me an m-f'er.

Well, his numbers are wrong. . .
"On average, about 170 people in the United States die every year from CO produced by non-automotive consumer products. These products include malfunctioning fuel-burning appliances such as furnaces, ranges, water heaters and room heaters; engine-powered equipment such as portable generators; fireplaces; and charcoal that is burned in homes and other enclosed areas. In 2005 alone, CPSC staff is aware of at least 94 generator-related CO poisoning deaths. Forty-seven of these deaths were known to have occurred during power outages due to severe weather, including Hurricane Katrina. Still others die from CO produced by non-consumer products, such as cars left running in attached garages. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that several thousand people go to hospital emergency rooms every year to be treated for CO poisoning."
I guess you could all chip in and have an attorney write the author of this video a "cease and desist" letter. YouTube might even pull it if many of you complain. I certainly would. He seems to be defaming all HVAC techs.
So isn't this some sort of indirect defamation? Its like me saying thousands of electricians burn down houses a year from faulty wiring on A/C disconnects, so hire me and I will save you. Its kind of a strong-arm tactic to scare homeowners don't you think? Heavy smokers alone can create up to 15 PPM of CO in a home.

Doctors kill way more people than that by sloppy handwriting and prescription drug errors.

either way this marko guy know's just enough to be dangerous, but obviously doesn't know much cause he has to slander an entire industry to make himself feel better.
maybe some random HVAC guy will punch him in the face
