    Places like that will sell lots of equipment...twice. The first time the consumer will overpay them for equipment, then have that equipment installed improperly.

    That's where the pros come in. We will go and fix the screw ups, hopefully for a really good profit, then before the equipment should die naturally, we will replace it with more new equipment.

    The main ones that get hurt from this sort of business is the manufacturer that gets crap over warranties and of course the home owner that gets screwed big time by thinking they are getting a bargain.

    Nothing like job security. I guess there will always be those who will guarantee work for legitimate HVAC guys.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.
