    Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little things, I am tempted to think there are no little things!

    New install, about 1month old.

    I personally like the flow of the whip!

    Impressive isn’t it?

    I think you guys make this up in your spare time. This can not be real.

    The call came in as a no A/C. The building has 5 units and 4 were approved for replacement. One was still fuctioning. (See how I say was!) The reason I was called....... they wanted to know why the front of the space wasn't cooling when the unit was just replaced. And were weary about the other guys, so they called us out. Turns out the installers (quality that they were) removed the good unit and left one of the dead ones. When I seen how the new units were installed..... I wanted to puke.


    Sad but true!

    The worst part of this is that they didn't just field hack this. They had to consider, design, build and install those I brackets....Thats at least 4 chances to stop the insanity. I always wonder what installers like this say to each other as they are getting off the roof or how they can say that other companies overcharge and rip customers off.-----------We really need state licensing and mandatory (every job) mechanical inspections.

    Initially, I was pondering as to what the original problem with this install was, then it came to me like a flash of enlightenment.

    THEY DIDN'T USE TREATED LUMBER!
