Chip everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Its their business and can operate it any way they feel is appropriate. I have always been of the opinion that the SOP is just a minimum standard. We are like so many other business we must compete for business. My way of competing has always been (do more Charge more) and that means in most cases exceeding the standard SOP and to do that a lot of education is required and that includes the safety aspect of all I do. I walk roofs that most consider as unsafe. I light pilot lights. I measure amp draws in electrical panels. I use the thermal camera in every inspection. I measure amp draws on electrical furnaces and on electrical heat strips for HP’s. I operate A/C units below that magic # of 60 degrees and the list goes on and on.
I have trained to do these things I do and how to do them safely and because of what I do it takes me across the whole state of Okla:mrgreen:
