Very few reputable companies will install parts supplied by someone else.
I have, on a couple occasions. It's a real hassle. You see, the customer
starts off by trying to save a pile of money. Rather than paying a market
price for a good job. What has happened to me in the past, is that the
customer wants me to supply all my wisdom for free, and parts at wholesale.
Folks like that often want the lowest possible discount on the labor too.
and might give me a lot of trouble, as to paying me.
The one job I did, the customer had started his own install of AC, in
addition to a natural gas furnace. It occured to him at some point that he
didn't have the skills. A couple weeks after the system was installed, it
stopped working. I went out, and found no freon in the system. I checked for
leaks, and got an indication next to the solder joints, on the evaporator.
So, I redid the fittings, and put in some freon. Went flat a day or two
later. So, the evaporator coil is leaking.
I quoted him based on three hours labor to change the coil, vaccum the
system, and 5 pounds of freon. He could take the coil back where he got it,
and swap it out. Havn't heard from him.
Seriously, I'd really doubt you'd find many companies that will work under
those conditions. You'd have much better results to call and ask when the
slow season is, and ask if there's a discount for slow season.
