Went out to a friends house ,he had called and said that he had been having to kick his heat pump to get it to shut off.His contactor was sticking. Imagine my suprise when I went to the crawl and saw this mutha! Installed on its back with no drain for 7 years this thing operated.Crawlspace was still wet from the A/C condensate from the past summer. To top it off my friend was home sick from work with an upper respritory infection. I wonder why. It had 10kw strip heat and was wired to a 100 amp breaker..Gave him a great price on a 12 seer.Laughed all the way home.
At least the furnace is level It is amazing the conditions this stuff will operate under. Now when you tell the home owner that it is installed completely wrong they will tell you "but it's worked "perfectly" for seven years".
Exactly, It is just red clay. But the grey matter on the side of the air handler is mold. I wish I would have taken some pics of the inside of the cabinet.
I too am amazed at how they lived comfortably for 7 years with this thing.I talked to the homeowner a week after I relaced the whole system(down to the grilles) and he said that he no longer has to use nose spray . I love going to look at jobs like this one.Always an easy sell,and they are always happy when the job is done.
