Do you replace summer refrigerant with winter refrigerant?"
    This is way more sad than it is funny. Did she say how much the other "tech" charged?

    I'd love to have one of these guys knock on my door. I think it would be a hoot to play the ignorant home owner with one of them.
    It's a mechanical device, designed by humans, built by humans and operated by humans. What could possibly go wrong?

    I think she said 200ish, but that was awhile ago. One of my school prof. used to be a cop so he has cameras surrounding his home.

    Before he went into HVAC, a man came to his home while he was at work and told his wife he was doing free AC system testing. Then charged her 180 bucks to clean the system and replace a bad contractor.

    The guy went to jail when my prof. had footage of him sitting on his condenser for 2 hours smoking and peeing on his house.
    If you're too "open" minded, your brains will fall out.
    Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

    I love it when a home-owner is over your shoulder and you just took off the panel to the unit and their first responds is do you know whats wrong with it?

    or when you show up to the job and the unit has been taken apart and the home-owner goes I tryed it fix it myself but I dont remember where the wires went and the fuse blew on the board as well.
