Thread: Flex Duct King

  1. #1
    Can you believe this guy had the nerve to call the state inspector about this commercial building being out of balance, blaming it on my installation of the kitchen exhaust hood? The fresh air makeup that he installed is a completely different hilarious story but I was amazed that he had the nerve to call the inspector with this job.....








    This one even shows what a fine job the residential electrician did on his part of the job.....

    Unbelievable.
    Some people should not be allowed to touch flex duct, here is a perfect example of one of them.
    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.

    Funny thing is the state inspector isn't going to do anything except for the wiring not finaled in a box.

    I think the duct guy and the sparky must be related.

    They must have learned their trade here in Phoenix,Az!
    that is how a lot of the cookie cutter homes are done.

    Get in, get out. Use all of the flex, no strapping and don't bring any of it back!

    I can't believe the sh*te I see.

    Thats not very nice at all. My husband is an RSI grad and I've seen his flex duct work, and it's quite good thanks, not to mention I'm only in phase 2 at RSI and can do a better job than that.. play nicely.

    I HAVE done a better job that that, I helped hubby install a couple of units for our landlord. Not all Phx tech are idiots, just the mass majority of them.

    But then again, when I finish I'm being smart about it and going low-temp.

    Ms. Queen,

    I don't think Payson was trying to knock all Phoenix folks - I can relate first hand as to how frustrating it is to go on job after job that some hack has installed like this or worse. It's just something you see especially when there's a "mass majority of them" that are idiots. As you can see, we have our fair share of them here in NE Oklahoma as well.

    I wish you the very best in this trade and believe you will be happy with the refrigeration side of things as well.

    And to think, my instructor didn't like my answer to the question "What is a technicians most important tool?" To which I answered...A BRAIN. The Book answer was Multimeter, which of course I had as a very close second I stick by my first answer for reasons pictured above!

    I think I'll like the field as well, hubby LOVES it, but the idea of being on a roof when it's 110+ outside is not appealing to me, and being low temp that won't happen all the time, but I'll be up there on occasion.

    As for Payson's comment, I realize he more than likely didn't mean all of the ummm, folks (the hacks can NOT be classified as a tech) but still, there are some excellent techs down here, and it's unfair to quasi place them in the hack category. As I am sure you can agree to that.

    Yep, I can appreciate that.

    I can also appreciate the fact that it doesn't reach 110 deg. here! We can, however, say it's a WET heat with high humidity to go along with our 98 deg days!! BTW, those rack houses and remotes in the alley next to the black asphalt are pretty warm too.
