I had a new split system American standard allegiance central air
conditioner installed two days ago. I had to put a stop payment
on the check because of some very serious concerns about their
installation. I have a couple of questions if someone experienced
would be so kind as to reply. Just some minor questions:
1) Is it normal for condenstation to form on the outside of the
furnace plenum with the a/c on? The evaporator coil is on top
of the furnace within the plenum.
2) How can I determine if my system has a LIQUID LINE FILTER DRIER
installed? I checked the copper lines from the a/c base outside all
the way to where it enters the plenum to the evaporator coil and I
don't see one. Could it be within the plenum or out a/c unit?
Thanks for your time!
PS: The installation of my new unit is one from hell!
What are your concerns to put a stop payment onn the check. If it is
beacause of the two questions you asked below, you are a thief. IF not
please state what were the real reasons of your stop check. Why did you
even give them a check if your were dissatisfied.
If the temperature of your plenum is below the deewpoint yes it will sweat.
There is one inside the condenser. Not a very good one, but there is one
You may have committed a felony by stopping payment on the check. The bank
will do this anytime you call them, but in our State if you stop payment on
a check it better be due to fraud or theft. Very few are aware that a check
is considered that you accepted the completed work and it is viewed by the
courts the same as cash, therefore, by cancelling your check, and if the
contractor knows the law, you have to explain to the court why you stole
'money' from this contractor, (remember, the court views a check the same as
cash). In Ohio if you steal cash or bounce a check over $50 it's a felony
with possible jail time, the same is true concerning cancelled checks. It's
like giving the contractor money/cash then without his knowledge you take
back/steal the money. If this causes the contractor to experience penalties
and judgments by creditors he can sue you for damages and he will probably
win. If you don't believe me, call your legal representative or your local
court and ask them, or go to the library and look up your States laws
concerning this. I got this information the first year I was in business by
my lawyer friend who is now a judge for the county.
There must be a lot of felons around. I see on TV court shows people
who stopped payment on checks all the time for shoddy repair work.
Maybe it IS fraud when what you paid for isn't properly installed and
SAFE! If the contractor KNOWS the law then he should know installing
something improper and unsafe could have VERY serious consequences.
For instance, the aluminum duct tape that is holding my plenum
together failing and spewing carbon monoxide in my house. Your lawyer
friend/judge sounds like a joke to me, and you do too. If the job is
done proper then there is no worry about stopped payments on checks. I
think you get that check and run! I'm glad you're in Ohio!
This is something that you didn't tell us before. Don't expect a straight
answer from *ANYBODY* without giving *ALL* of the details.
BTW, you ignorance is showing.... There is nothing wrong with using
aluminimum tape to seal off plenum air leaks after its been screwed
together, and IF you have CO coming out of the plenum, you have a hell of a
lot worse problem than you realize....CO DOESN"T COME OUT OF THE PLENUM
I'm glad you not in Mississippi, because even ignorant rednecks got more
sense than you do.
My questions weren't regarding the legality if stopping payments on
checks. I guess you couldn't grasp that though. Sealing a seam and
covering 1" gaps with tape are two different things. The tape was
used because it cannot be screwed together. mississippi? Never heard
of it, oh um, maybe I did..land of ignorant rednecks who are married
to their sisters and cousins.
Once again, a homegrowner comes here for free advice and then bites your
BTW, it IS the law, you ARE a felon. But of course, you take your legal
advice from TV actors just like you took the advice of this company who
hacked in your system.
You both deserve each other
Geo Blowhard. Keep showing your back side pal. I phoned my family
attorney and began telling him my dilemma and before I even finished
he said " STOP PAYMENT IMMEDIATELY!!" I told it I already did.
You ARE A FOOL you troll idiot who done know honey from bear crap and
that includes your lawyer/judge butt buddy friend. HAHA.
Free advice? Not from fools like you pal. But you do give me a
Your a liar,
To prove that you aren't show us the stop payment, just post it on a free
picture site. Of course I won't wait.
Your also a liar about your previous posts, you said you weren't worried and
you see it all the time on TV.
Thirdly your a liar, your making things up as they go along. They corrected
your CO problem and you gave them a check and THEN you were going to do a
FINAL inspection???? Your such an ass.
