And its not uncommon for contractors to quote a job with no profit, or even at a loss to get their foot in the door.

    Come on now..... a man with your intimate knowledge of all things Trane....a anaconda with a pocket full of firmware and the Tracer Tu software should be able to go pick up any old medium voltage drive and put us Trane boys out of business.

    You seem awfully worry about my business...... on the other hand I really don't care what you think or do and have no desire to interact with you!

    Im a little confused. If Trane offers to sub the entire job under Chuckies for cheaper than they sell them the part, then chuckies would be a fool to not take them up on that. Then Chuckies would have all the labor done for them for free, pay less for the part, and make a killing from the customer.

    Don't step on my favorite part of the Constitution just to point out your favorite part.

    Political Correctness is forced on you because you have forgotten decency.

    Technically speaking, they are all heat pumps.

    Darn it! I missed all this yesterday! BTW, Daikin McGay does this. Lost jobs to them after calling for parts. Lowest quote by the bean counters. Building maintenance was pissed when they showed up. They were expecting us.
