I agree with Robert…that could be a homeowner special…???..


I owned a A/C company in florida.............Had a customer call me to
put back together his air conditioner after he took it apart to find out what was wrong with it. Got to his house he had it all over his back yard. Only to find he had a bad run capacitor, on the compressor.......

Some homeowners will go to the extremes...sometimes, thinking they can fix it........................................................

Thanks, RM

In this case, it was a contractor who installed the insulation. This was a permitted addition to a 1939 home in Los Angeles. There were some other issues as well.


Here are some attic photos - a plumbing vent stack and two bathroom exhausts.

Honey, what’s that funny smell coming from the attic? icon_question.gif javascript:emoticon(’icon_question.gif’)


Hey Jeff, better not light a match in there. It might be full of methane gas.

Hi. guys, hope you are all doing fine.

I would hope that these photos depict homeowner fabrication, because I would be very disappointed to find that there are contractors out there that would create such unappropriate workmanship. On second thought, I do have a few employees on my construction site that might fly to this magnatude of performance. ha, ha,.

Best wishes,

Marcel
