Well here is a new one in my state.
Like many other states I have to have a "Refrigeration certification"
license, a "HVAC Master and Journeyman license" and all the other
local permits, occupational and insurance requirements.
Now, outta the blue, the state sends out a letter that says if I do
any work on a LP furnace I have to have at least a class E license to
work on them!! Cost is $50 every 2 years. I've also found that the
local wholesalers will have to carry a license to sell me a LP
furnace? Obviously LP furnaces will now go up in cost.
Once again the Govt. has figured out a way to make money for nothing.
I wonder when they will start taxing us for the Air and the Sun?
BUBBA! what is your paypal account? I'm considering making a donation for
one year of your LP license, as I've always been a fan of yours.
25 bucks a year, now that will be a hardship. :-) And how will those dealers
make any profit if they have to pay. Guess they'll have to charge you 25
cents extra to pay for each LP furnace you buy to cover the cost of their
Ok, I'm expecting the bruising to come. Man that's funny.
I already am taxed on the air and the sun; you are not?
No silly. Its not the $25 bucks a year. That is so low its stupid.
However remember what will happen. The price WILL go up. Look at what
your Master/Journeymen license first cost and now look at its price
tag. The installing company, wholesaler and everyone else will also
have to have a license. Everyone will add their mark up and pretty
soon LP furnaces will cost much more.
Datz my point. All because the govt wanted to join in.
I know, I know. My fuel oil company charges me their price per gallon, then
they add a delivery surcharge of 4 bucks.
Same with my propane company. 4 bucks delivery surcharge
Lets not even talk about the price of gasoline; aaargh!
Just heard the other day, that as much as the oil companies are making
record profits, the taxes that are placed on our fuels are much higher than
the oil companies profits. Its enough to get us sick, and it does.
My best was probably just recently. Everyone seems to be adding a
fuel/delivery surcharge of anywhere from $0.50 to $5 or $10.
I took one of our vans in for service Monday. The front wheels
wobbling. Ford E-150 (yes, too whimpy for hvac service). 40K miles on
it and it needed new upper and lower ball joints (sealed grease
fittings on the old ones). About $350 in labor and $300 for the ball
joints. 2 new tires $125 ish each, brake pads $80 and even a $90
employee discount (no, none of us are employees) and then the final
stupid nail on the head was a $25 shop charge!! I had no problem with
their work or their prices. It was just that stupid shop charge! Hell!
Just add another $25 to the tires or ball joints or make the discount
less.. However, I didnt say a word and I'll certainly be back for more
repairs............until something better comes along. :-)
The problem with them including the shop charge fee to something else would
make them higher than their competitor's parts.
People not in business for themselves just don't understand that. They would
make their purchase from the shop with the lower cost tires. Even if they
end up paying the same or more in the end.
Ya fuckhead you better never present at my door without at least a 12 pak.
Then I might or might not make a new gear for you fucking scooter or
snowmobile or lawn tractor.
Buy a new one.
