You guys need to get your stories straight. First you claim you work
exceedingly long hours because of all the work you have, then you claim
you have excess free time because you can get away with overcharging.

Hard to believe something so simple has to be explained to you but
then I guess we just forget that the hvac mind is far superior to
It works this way:
When its 55 in the winter or 70 in the summer, most ppl arent using
their equipment that much. Thus. less breakdowns and less customers
thinking about replacing their equipment.
It gives us time to play.
Then again, there are times when its 95 degrees in the summer and even
hotter out west. Here it doesnt have to be that hot. The humidity will
kill you when its 75 degrees out. It makes for long long hours. It
also makes for much much money.
You have heard of the phrase, "get it while its hot"? "Make hay when
the sun shines"?
Any part of this making sense to you now or does someone need to hit
you with a Fungo bat?
Long hours work? Repeat calls, bothced jobs, haven't got a clue what is
wrong, etc., etc. No wonder it's LOOOOONG hours work for nothing. And
trying to compensate by overchargning. Never in my book.
We just serviced a system yesterday and found the air free CO over
800ppm. Went on a no heat call a week ago. Tripped flame roll out.
Air free CO over 2000ppm - couldn't get the meter out quick enough.
99 times out of 100 changing a gas valve is no big deal. You just
have to decide on the chance you want to take. What is scary is there
are a LOT of companies that don't check CO in any case.
