    I had to have the heat pump in the house I just moved into serviced today. The problem was straightforward and the fan was replaced, but the technician tried to sell me a water sensing cutoff switch for the drip pan. He wanted $165, which seemed high to me, so I said no. But after he left I took a look at the drip pan and saw that it was cracked. I can tell why it cracked - it's a plastic pan and it is supporting some of the air handler's weight. Do I try epoxying it? is there a better way to patch it? If I wanted to replace the pan, how should I go about lifting the unit, and how should I support it so that it's not resting on the pan? 2014-02-26 19.42.12.jpg 2014-02-26 19.43.48.jpg
