Plumbers cracks are what is seen from behind when they are squatting down. :mrgreen:
Sorry, Jae. Had to do it.
I have, recently, been running into a some of fmy ormer clients who call me to complain. They have HVAC guys come in to do maintenance on their furnaces (most that I inspect have not been looked at in quite a while and I recommend maintenance) and they tell the client that the water heaters are spewing forth CO. Of course the client panics and the HVAC guy is right there to slap in a new water heater.
In my area, water heaters are a plumber’s job, not an HVAC guy. What about in your areas?
The clients are, usually, quite P*SSED and want restitution. I have been called back a few times when the HVAC guy was still there and re-inspect the drafting and such, but find nothing. The HVAC guys are usually really indignant. “Who you going to trust, a home inspector or an HVAC professional”, they say. Puts the client in quite a bind. I usually refer them to a good plumber who comes out ans tells they that everything is OK.
Have you been seeing this scam in your areas?
