    At least he used silver solder.
    Bet it was a Goodman. Blame the dang wholesalers. I would also have asked him where he got the refrigerant. Than I would call the EPA, collect my reward, and it's off to vacay I go.

    The reward fund has been empty for a solid 10 years, probably longer... makes you wonder where the money from the fines goes

    For the record
    Zero dollars were ever allocated to the reward fund! There is No Such Fund and never has been!

    Ive had mine for almost 20 years. Even back then, the class was a huge amount of $$$$. It was a 3 day course, out of town. Pass or fail, no retries within 1 year.

    A money grab. It still didnt prevent hacks.
