    Angry

    This unit is 2 months old.

    I'm working with an inspector to change the code here in Oregon. Hopefully it'll fly and stop this.
















    The one next door is in the same condition. This is what I'm trying to change. Breath that air!

    When I had explained to the contractor about indoor air quality.

    He said "Oh all my tenants are going to die".
    What the pictures don't say, the contractor did.

    Whoever ran that machine should be made to pay for the clean-up of it. If the tape-bed guy's had us stab holes into there sheetrock or use a razor knife down the seam of a couple of walls maybe they would think about running our units to keep warm....

    I see this alot to around Dallas~Ft. Worth........

    Pisssssssss me Off to no end..............

    Had a guy spraying black enamal paint on dance studio spiral (hard pipe) ductwork...Walls and ceiling were also sprayed black.He took great care to cover new hardwood floor with tape plastic. "Told him not to run system while he was spraying".Came back to find filter black ,blower black inside ductwork black..... Took pictures called general contractor and owner of center. He had to pay clean up and was not paid for his work until we signed off of job....Nice pictures can speak volumes......

    And we're expected to make it all look new again! A certain amount of that dust will always be in there. I see it frequently also.

    I don't see any of those furnaces here in Phoenix.
    Is that a Coleman/EVcon or an Armsgtrong or something?
    Heaven forbid, it looks like they did Carrier's trick and ran the damn flue pipe in front of the blower section!
    I hate that.

    It's an Armstrong dn flow. I think that when I get called back to unplug the sensing line for the combustion fan motor, It wont be a warrantee call.

    Really F###n something,
    I just finished two jobs one was a heat pump with a Lifebreath Clean Air furnace as backup and another heat pump with an Armstrong 95% 2 stg/varialble and both customers asked if they could us the equipment to heat during construction. Boy did I get pissed and torn into them I can't understand where people can even get an idea like that, I mean they can't all be brain dead or maybe they are. Actually the first job it was the contractor that asked to use the equipment, and I use the word contractor very loosely.

    One time a builder ran an extension cord to the new furance, and had it running.. We told the electrion not to wire the furnace till the sheetrocking was done..

    Well, the builder end up burning up the blower motor since the fiberglass filter was soo caked up w/ sheet rock dust, it caved in and caught into the blower cage. He got the bill on that one!

    "That crap you put in stinks!"

    Customer painted some funky-ass paint over the new steam pipes. They were ready to close their shop till they realized if masked the BO of one of the employees.

    Hate to say this, but you should plan for that. On new construction I disable the airhandlers until I want to start them.

    Cool Yep

    I rarely do any new const. but if this is a constant problem for you, I agree with james totally disable them take the dang breakers with you untill everybodys done and you get paid.

    I know it sucks going back but if it prevents whats in those picures, I think it is worth it, that unit wont ever be as clean as it was unless you take it all apart and use a water hose.
    I will be on the look out for that kind of stuff.
