This wiring is extremely hazardous. Notice the water stains on the floor as you navigate these photographs. It is difficult to believe that any conscientious individual, let alone a HIRED CONTRACTOR can leave a job is a hazardous condition like this. Truth be told, this could have caught fire and kill my wife and children in their sleep.
Here is a photograph of an air handler that was installed by Brubaker Air Conditioning & Refrigerant in Corpus Christi.
Notice the drip pan filled with water. Brubaker damaged the primary pan during installation, The condensate water could not be drained into the home plumbing system since the primary pan was damaged. This allowed the secondary pan (as the photo shows) to fill up. The Secondary drain for this pan was not installed and allowed the pan to overflow. The red wires that you see are a float switch, this switch was the final safety device that was supposed to turn the unit off in the event the primary and secondary drains failed. This Switch was incorrectly wired and failed to turn the system off.
Another view of the faulty wiring that posed a danger to my wife, children and home.
Several attempts have been made to contact Richard Brubaker in the hopes he would return to rectify these issues. He stopped returning phone calls and text messages. He got his money and that was all he ever cared about.
A complaint has been filed with the Better Business Bureau and he never bothered to respond. The complaint cant be seen here.
Dont Trust Brubaker Air Conditioning and Refrigeration to even change your systems air filter.
Here is a photo of the disconnected drain line that was supposed to allow water that escaped from the damaged primary pan to be safely moved outside of the home. Since this was not connected, water filled the secondary pan and overflowed. this caused damage to the drywall, ceiling, insulation and water came into contact with exposed electrical components that were improperly secured during the initial installation.
It is beyond clear that Brubaker Air Conditioning & Refrigeration was in over his head with this simple AC Unit Installation job.
Here we see a total lack of professionalism and caring. This is the supply on the air handler in the attic. There are large holes that allow the cool air coming from the unit escape into the attic and never make in into the living area of the home. Notice the “spare parts” left in the pan. he never bothered to removed the screws he dropped and never installed.
Here we can see unsecured and exposed wiring that leaves a potential for a shock or a fire hazard.
When it comes to the safety of your home and family, never settle for anything less than a contractor who is licensed, insured and bonded.
Always try to look for a company that has been around with a reputation to maintain.
There are plenty of good companies to choose from in the Corpus Christi Area.
Sometimes It Isn’t Worth it!
