Its almost hard to believe, What is the electric bill? WT? Dude must think hes saving money by not replacing


This customer was having an air flow problem from the vent in one of her bedrooms, I think we figured it out!





This is what happens when you get unqualified people to do your installations!  You might think you're getting a heck of a deal, but you very well may end up like these folks with a ton of water damage and one giant hole in the ceiling.... Thats JUST NOT COOL





This is our customer (with permission), check out that filter!!

It was a simple service call, repair & parts costed him $136.

PLUS the house air quailty would have been much better and the machine life more stable.

We had a blast with him, great customer, thank you.






  1. Question: What is the purpose of a furnace filter?

CoolAnswer: Furnace manufacturers put inexpensive fiberglass filters into their furnaces to remove airborne particles that might damage the fan and the heating coil. Particle buildup can also decrease the efficiency of your furnace, as the furnace has to work harder to pull air through the intake. More expensive filters can also improve the air quality in your house by removing pollen, bacteria and mold spores from the air. This is especially important if you or someone in your family suffers from allergies.

Question:What is a MERV rating?

CoolAnswer: MERV stands for the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, and is a measure of a filter's worst-case efficiency performance. The higher the MERV rating, the more efficient the filter.



I would say thats getting dangerous!




promise it has Freon in it!! (LEFT)




This is why you dont buy used equipment! Gives new meaning to customized system!




Don't think capacitors go bad?

dead_rats_installThis person was breathing in some seriously harmful airborne bacteria! Air Knight and calling us in. Air Conditioning can be no joke.



OK Ready for this one . You need to go outside and look at your air conditioner condensor. If its like this PLEASE TURN IT OFF. You might have cooled off the out side.







I know it was a DIY project, But its just not going to pass inspection, hmmmm I wonder why?





We have it really good here in the USA, Looks like water problems underthat window also, I wonder if the Water Heater is behind him? The Mini Split he is sitting on looks the same as so many here hmmmm? Yep they are often from the same Chinese factory for all brands



Well, this is one way to have heat in your car.....
