URGENT - A/C Tech still at my house and I need advice

I am having my air handler unit replaced (finally) and the tech wants to leave the old one in the attic.
The old unit will not fit through the opening and he does not want to cut the unit apart.
Should I have any concerns with leaving the old unit in the attic?

How much of a discount will he give to not do the job completely as quoted? You could take it out yourself later if you have a few basic tools.

Sounds like someone wants to get home early to me.

It wouldn't really hurt anything I guess, except take up room.

To me that is leaving the job not finished! I wonder what other short cuts he took.

ditto.


if the removal was part of the quote, he either removes it or gives you a discount you are happy with. If it wasn't part of the quote, he really has no obligation to remove it anyway.


I see no problem leaving it in, as long as it does not cause any problems as you see it. It is merely taking up space or in the way.

my opinion is we'll remove it as a usual and customary service, but if your premises won't permit it, i'd say it's yours.

Ok, a dealer working on a Saturday? Unless your system died, and had to get a new one in...

Glad to know it is not a problem up there.
He left the unit in the attic but he committed to come and get it in the next week or so.
It was defiantly a case of the tech wanting to get home early.
