Rats & Dirty HVAC Evaps: The CB/ Wall of Shame: Week of 12/15

HVAC-TAL.COM is owned and operated by Contracting magazine is the industry's number one discussion forum


Welcome back to one of two new photo galleries you can expect to see regularly on "HVAC Installations Gone Bad." It shows work by disreputable HVAC contractors that the good guys have to come in and fix. Some show the result of long neglect. Many of these photos have long been a feature in our discussion forum, the largest discussion forum for the professional HVACR industry.

These photos serve to illustrate the importance of hiring professional, licensed, and certified HVAC contractors.

THIS WEEK, we have some deplorable damage caused by rodents in an outdoor unit, a rooftop junkyard, and what one contractor describes as "the worst ever" example of a neglected rooftop unit that he's ever seen.

Click on the links displayed with each photo caption to see the entire story and read comments from other contractors.
