  • Followed a good install

    Mon. my boy and I went to a shop to run 300' of air line. Pretty straight forward. Some of the guys want the heat turned on. there's four 200,000k coray vac tube heaters. Turn up the thermostat, click, whine , whistle. (I just started laughing) The kinda pitch thats somewhere close to torture if it continues for more than a couple seconds. Then poof/boom ,one of heaters access panels blows off as it tries to ignite. Yah, it's still whistling and I'm still laughing. The foreman looks at me as the panel hits the floor (I don't know how to make that sound) By this time I tell him we need to shut it down. That it's unsafe.(shrapnel and all) I tell him I think the flexes are to small but I'll check it out. Brand new building.
