    Got a call the other day from a local HVAC company. They asked me if I could go on a call and solve an issue for them. Apparently, a novice tech from their company went on a no cooling call and replaced the blower motor and thermostat and the customer complained because there was still no air. Their senior tech was on leave, so I said sure. I found that the replacment dual shaft motor was rated at 230vac when it should have been a 115 vac. It is also my opinion that the tech did a hack job on the wireing by not securing the blower wires and useing the wrong wire nuts. The low voltage was all choped up and there was water on the blower shelf and on the floor. The old motor was sitting next to the furnace along with the box. I would fire someone for this sloppy work if they were my employee. The customer was very happy with me and wanted no part of the other company. Thought I would share the news. Thanks for reading!

    I got to admit I ???? what kind of training the novice tech is getting from a company that has to call another company to fix their problems....The senior Tec was on leave and they had no one to at all to go fix the problem....so probably the new guy got about 5 min of training..here is the keys to the van...have fun.

    As a home owner I would really have a big problem with an a/c company I called to fix something going..hummm were stupid ...can I use your yellow pages to look for an a/c company than knows what there doing.

    All you needed to do was add another 120 v and another blower wheel and you would have been good to go.
