    My commercial department killed it

    This was installed a few years ago. First time I saw it. I am dizzy.

    My commercial department killed it

    I hate to be the one to say this, but at this point Id stop referring to them as my. I wouldnt want to be associated with that kind of work, let alone the lack of work ethic. I cant believe people pay for stuff like this. Unfortunately its not just the company you work for. Its everywhere and every trade. People go to work because its a job that pays. Could care less about the out come not to mention its their name along with the companies name on it.

    Question: What are ethics worth to these guys?

    Answer: Nothing

    Looking on the bright side (very little lite) at least the condensate is straight.

    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    Sure, it looks crappy, but it's a GD mini-split with a soft copper lineset. There's not a whole lot you can do to make those look better.

    I guess they could have drilled a hole through the roof and stuffed it through the ceiling, but then you have a roof penetration to worry about.

    How exactly should it have been done?

    It may be a mini split but I guarantee it could of been done with a better standard to quality.

    Seen it a Thousand times Here. Not exactly my first choice. But I am Guilty also.
    There seems to be come a time when you Turn Out on your own, your busting A_ _ trying to keep the permits up, truck running, Lights on etc.
    while trying to compete in a Vicious uncontrolled market. I have come to a place where Aesthetics aren't AS important AS performance.
    I try to give every project the WHITE GLOVE. but this is a BUSINESS.
    If that machine is secured correctly, charged properly, wired accordingly and passed inspection... There is nothing wrong with that install other than a drip dip on the line set.
    Let the HEAT begin. LOL

    Hey, at least you don't have to worry about water leaks when it rains at the roof penetration.

    But, if by chance we disagree,
    Up yours! Here's to me!"

    Could have at least put a nice tight bend on it and supported it properly. Still wouldn't look great going around the roof overhang but it wouldn't look like shit at least.

    Roof penetration would have been the best option.

    do the veterans here agree that roof penetration was the best option?

    (I vaguely remember a landlord complaining to tenant that he doesn't want roof penetration (was not related to HVAC installation).)

    might the landlord (the customer) object to roof penetration?

    if the HVAC tech is considering doing roof penetration, isn't it a good idea to check with the customer first to see if it's ok with them? let's say that the tech did contact the customer and gave the options and let's say the customer chose no roof penetration. then the job (as seen in the OP) was done right. right? or would you say that the tech should have explained things better and that would have resulted in the customer choosing roof penetration?
