Around here, just about any supply house will sell then to the general public.
I just love people who want to over engineer a system because they didn't know how to properly set it up in the first place. Most times I come across a tech who wants to fix an issue with a system by installing a txv I find that not only would a txv not resolve the issue but they simply did not set up the equipment properly in the first place. And yes, I am willing to bet that something is not operating properly.
I'm sure gonna miss this one. I am really broken hearted that this one will never come back to H-Talk because he doesn't like me....ohhhhh the guilt I am feeling.....
Then again, yes, I would certainly have been willing to help out if this poster had actually posted anything even remotely worthwhile rather then his off the wall thoughts for curing what is most likely not what he thinks is even happening. We don't even have a model number of the indoor coil to work with. My first guess would be that the poster bought either a matching indoor coil/AH which would have had a piston that is too large for the outdoor unit and the blower is oversized or he bought an indoor coil/AH with the nominal sizing for a 10 SEER unit that is too small for the CPLT it is matched to.
I'd love to know what the operating data is on this system. Who knows, he may have lucked out and it may actually be operating properly. Temperatures, pressures, voltages and amps would certainly be nice to know though.
i realy dout he spent the money needed to buy a reclaimer and just dumped the charge.
after all we caused so much green house what harm is a nother 5 to 10 pounds gonna do:eek:
Chlorine in pools do more damage than we do....
