Is there a market for used, full house air-conditioners and full house gas
furnaces? Where would we sell them? We are talking about the kind of
air-conditioners and gas furnaces that are used to heat a standard,
two-story, $200,000, suburban home.
Junkyard, scrap metal.
Think about it: You're going to install this piece of equipment
and you have no idea of how it's been used or abused, if it has
chronic problems, if it has been pig-rigged "fixed" somewhere
along the line?
Oh yeah: In all likelyhood, one or more of your family members
will be sleeping right over top of it at night.
I see adds in the paper for "clean one owner" units all of the time for
$75-100 a ton.
Most of these are package units, roof mount.
Gas furnaces should be destroyed as the fire box when cracked could pump CO
into the home. Better check your local regs before you go to far.
One of the local crane companies around here take package units for $30-$50
a piece. They take them to a retired guy that salvages the freon and scraps
No. They are not.
IF you were in the trade, you would know that HfH gets the units new, and at
a substantial discount. Then, legitimate contractors like myself will
install them from time to time for free. SOMETIMES, we supply the equipment
at no cost.
IF you were in the trade, you would know that the International Gas Code
prohibits the re-use of a fossil fuel buring appliance in a residential
WHY in hell would HfH want to build a BRAND NEW house, with a used piece of
crap on it?
Lemmie guess Davey...you dont have liability insurance either.........
