Al, nowhere in the rules does it say the license holder must verify performance.

As far as not having to pay for illegal work be careful there. Consumers don't have to pay for the labor but they can be made to pay for materials in a court of law.
Steve you are correct regarding the payment of materials but not labor.
As to the just installing a t'stat I was told by a TDLR employee (position not known) that the service must be of some significance not just per functionary.
I am at work right now...
When I get home this evening I will load up some of the pictures for you guys too look at.
With a new unit ( outside and inside ) what should the temperature difference be between the return and the vents. Right now I am only getting 14 to 15 degrees differential.
check the DT at the coil for a more precise reading.
As acmanco said, the reading needs to be taken at the indoor unit, and even then it depends on the indoor wet bulb what your delta will be.

How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
When they were checking the delta temperature, he just stuck a thermometer in the return and in one of the vents. He couldn't even tell me what the humidity was in the house. I had to go by a meter to determine the humidity level in the house.
humidity level? or relative humidity level?
The meter just showed humidty ( 50% ), I couln't tell you which of the two it was showing.
Now how did that happen
