    John, you can tell wires are live by the fact that you haven't turned off the breaker. Or, you can buy a $1.50 "voltage pencil" at HD. That's a device that looks like a small screwdriver with a neon light in it and a pocket clip. You touch the wire with the screwdriver tip while holding the handle so your hand touches the pocket clip. If it lights up, it's live.
    As for drumming up more hvac business, I'm sorry, John, I can't help you with that. You'll have to do some good work and hope for some referrals.

    I had a problem with a window unit that kept blowing the circuit breaker. Found the wires on the circuit breaker was loose. Tightened them up and never had a problem with it again so far. Might also check the connections on the plug on the wall. Be sure to shut off the circuit breaker when doing this.
