Had my first day on the job today and was excited about being shown all the new procedures and technologies to come along in my 14 years absence from the field. I ended the day a bit disappointed after helping to set 2 brand new units on 2 brand new houses under construction and the installs were finished without ever seeing nitrogen, a vacuum pump, guages, nothing. Weld on the lines, stick the thermostat wires in, run a freon purge using the factory charge and load all the tools up. No wonder everyone else is having such a hard time paying the bills. You guys buy all that unneeded equipment like recovery machines and vacuum pumps. Damn, I went to work for the hacks. I'll have to change that soon as I can.
