    No foul, no issue...

    IMO it is tuff to 'see' clearly on the internet... I am guilty as charged with other folks many times...

    Too many folks in this business ARE greedy (and IMO tend to compromise many things). I think it makes life easy for those of us that ARE honest... it just takes longer to build our customer base...

    Happy New Year, and a properous year to you my friend.

    I suspect the %'s vary in different areas, but I do believe you are right in that a majority tend to see this business as a 'cash cow' rather than customer service that provides an income.

    IMO part of this is the consumer's doing; When the heat or AC goes out... they want it fixed NOW.. and are willing to pay high rates for that comfort (wish they would pay high rates for comfort during installs... ). Kinda like they created the monster... All us guys are doing is riding the wave so to say.

    Most of my service and install tickets are a bit less than the big shops... however my customers are as loyal as they can be... And loyal customers do nice referrals!!! I like this business.

    Good looking install. I am just asking, does one (in your area) have to cover up all that nice metal ductwork with insulation? Around here s/a ducts would sweat and drip water. We have gone to a bubble wrap (no fiberglass). Maybe you ductlined?

    I will get some pictures posted soon of a horizontal SL280V attic install I am doing for my daughter's "future" inlaws. Complete 2 zone cut-in, house had electric ceiling heat, built back in the 60's.

    thanks.

    as for the insulation, nope. it's a fully conditioned basement. in the summer i do have to run a dehumidifier in the basement but that's it.

    i have yet to see any of the 80% 33" furnaces from lennox. good luck with the install, i always cringe when i hear "attic".

    in the 4x4 box there's a switch and 3 outlets. one for the humidifier, one for the uv lights, and another for the condensate pump.

    there's another outlet on the other side of the furnace for the pureair.

    Nice job. So the light in your hall makes the thermostat orange? or did you coat it? What kind of brake did you use for that duct? Came out real nice there. A+

    Flu exhaust right under window is a nit-pick.
    An answer without a question is meaningless.
