View Full Version : Non-Bleed TXV's??
04-13-2009, 11:14 PM
Wonding why Goodman is matching non-bleed TXV's for all their Heat Pump units. Recently put in a 5 ton Heat Pump w/TXV matched with unit. Condenser has a scroll compressor, but now I've got to install a Start-Assist kit or change out the TXV w/a Bleed-type. Anyone know the reason using Non-bleed TXV's....seems like this only causes the compressor to work alot harder on start-up???

Not allowed to get technical in the residetial forums.
But, You'll find that just about all manufacturers are using non bleed TXVs, it increases SEER rating.
If its got a scroll compressor, its not the TXV thats causing it to have start troubles.
Sorry, this is not a DIY site. So we are not allowed to give out DIY advise of this nature.
