Have you priced copper lately?
Comment was for the post saying to use 1/4" copper and flares
Now that is Not something too many technicians consider doing but some good suggestions. Im willing to bet the instruments required for testing pressure drops are not on 90% of work vans. Probably a...
Deluxe Flaring tool........ not a bad price either if it works like you say.
The only full range 1/8" to 3/4" O.D. flaring tool available for copper, brass and aluminum tubing
I dont question...
Logging into my UR account now to look this part number up.
They will Probably raise the price by the weekend thanks to your infommercial.
Well, ordered the original compressor 3 ton.
Changed it out. All is well.
I didnt want to spend the money having a 3.5 ton already on hand but I went ahead and got the 3 ton just to be done with...
Yeah... hear that all the time.
Can someone add "coolant" the A/C is not cold enough.
Have also heard a ton of "technicians" tell customers " I added 4 lbs of coolant"
Its the short answer and...
No.......House was Built in 1998 this room has always lacked a few degrees compared to other rooms
I tore the last run apart that goes to this room and most of the run was sheet metal duct but the...
20' run of flex duct
I Have closed off other rooms in the past and it just transfers the problem to another room.
Guess I will try the upsize first and run one size larger to the room in question.
Air handler is rated 3 or 3.5 ton
Figured I could install a 3.5 ton compressor and figure out what size condenser fan motor and it would work.
I will order a 3 ton compressor if need be, but...
I have one room that doesnt seem to get enough air.
It has flex duct in the attic space and this is the last room on this run.
What can I do to increase air flow to this room?
It takes time to learn thats for sure.
Im not an expert by no means and have always been in maintenance so its plumbing on minute,carpentry another, with electrical work
in between and HVAC from...
Can I replace a 3 ton compressor with a 3.5 Ton Compressor.
The evaporator coil is rated 3-3.5 ton.
The condensor has a 3 ton compressor and it is bad.
Same issue but just a few years older. Carrier at 10yrs is probably all you will get now.
I see a lot of Journeyman license holders that have not a clue and a few MASTERS...
It certainly isnt the best way to judge qualifications.
Nothing beats hands on experience.
Left the factory...... Amen
Back to my favorite actual Facility Maintenance and no more baby sitting machine operators and never having time to perform actual maintenance.
Now working 8 hour days...
Take this job and shove it will be my song any day now.
5-10 day wait on the background check...wish it was instant
Been stuck in a manufacturing facility the past year....... wooooo talk about pure hell
12hr Night shift too.
Employee Turnover rate alone will keep you depressed. You can get all the hours you...
That statement says a lot. Refrigeration would definitely be a "drop what your doing" and "report to work" situation.
Thats something to consider for sure.
Yep, I realize the importance of the refrigeration issues.
Probably not ready for it but will keep looking into it for now.
Just seems the better jobs are in refrigeration.
HVAC Tech kind of...
I read here a lot and have learned quite a bit.
Sounds like the refrigeration end would be upgrading my experience and knowledge.
Ive had very few co-workers that were either...
Well are you guys still satisfied with SSG?
Is it strictly HVAC/R or do they do building maintenance too?
I work for a property management company and could be sent on ANYTHING from door locks...
This would be another reason JLL would handle such an account. They offer a variety of services when a company is in bad shape.
From selling it and handling the transaction to helping cut costs....
I have experience with HVAC and carry a Universal EPA card.
I Have worked mainly with housing,hotels and telecommunications facilities.
Some Chiller experience,compressor changeouts and a lot of...
Still aint over it..
Waiting until the morning for a price is going to keep me up all night. LOL
Some customers prefer Run to fail
It's all pure madness just keeping up with the rules
So much for a profitable day......pretty much down the drain
Yeah, Pretty sure Im going to eat a chunk of change here
The Heat pump probably costs a lot more- have to check on it in the morning.
Walk in to the supply store.. tell them what I need (3 ton Package Unit Heat pump)
Have someone pay for it and pick it up and unload it.
Turns out.....ITS NOT A HEAT PUMP it's A/C with 15KW Heat...
Its an old Coleman like hvacman14 said and has seperate relays in the unit to control the A/C
Its definitely a relay and now I just have to find one
First time I ever ran across one like this
Looking for a relay now
It Just might be the issue but it checks good and thats whats so confusing
Beating my head on what should be a SIMPLE fix.
Simple 2 wire t-stat
A/C - Electric Heat
Turn t-stat to heat works great- no issues
Turn T-stat to "OFF" and A/C...
Very much possible especially if you have more chiefs then indians.
need to have a boss you can talk too and get results- Exactly, that would be fantastic but so many are out to get by with as little effort as possible and too worried about saving their own rear end....
We promote within.
But I guess if they dont your not qualified.
Worlike / Family life balance
As long as you take worklife as first priority
Just not over .25 cents
Internet job sites but you have to filter through the jobs until you find on of interest.
Ive learned to stay away from the openings posted every single day for months.
I still have about 5 or 6 days left of vacation. If need be I will handle it that way.
For now I'm planning to do it the way they requested when you plan to take another job and give 2 weeks notice....
Didnt even know I would find something like this either 5 days on 5 days off.
The 5 years I just spent being ON-CALL for nothing was the biggest waste of time all the while hanging on for false...
Good advice and is currently the plan in action.
Already spent time at the new place and interviewed with 4 different leaders.
New job offer and details will be discussed on Monday.
Then if Im...
This company has a plan but as "EMPLOYEES" we have no clue what that plan consists of. Our opinion is that they want to drive it into the ground. Because we have lost all motivation by being...
That is the hardest part about leaving. Most all of us were happy after the 2nd year things were going good 3rd year was even better. 4th year started going down but they got everything back. 5th...
They dont want me to leave and as much as they tell us about keeping costs down its not an option for a $2.50 raise.
I will give a 2 week notice and if they send me packing that day I guess I...
Its a corporate atmosphere and suggestions or requests fall on deaf ears. Just when things are going good they transfer leaders and everything falls apart with new leadership. Vicious 5 year cycle...
Leaving is my only option as I have had the needed conversations several times in the past 2 years.
Always excuses about the money issue but yet company stock and clients stock is at all time...
5 years, at the current place.
Been great until recently.
Not sure what the exact issue is but I've reached a point I'm ready to move on.
Biggest reason is pay scale.
New employees come in making...
This was not actually my job.
This job was performed by a contractor in a home I rent.
I do know they did not run a new line set, so I will check the size of the lines.
It has about 80 ft of...

New 410A Unit installed.
This new 410A condensing unit is quiet outside
However, You can hear the liquid line inside and it is irritating.
Just guessing but it seems since it runs a higher PSI...
Thanks to everyone. I am meeting with another tech tomorrow to turn this unit back on and and try to find the issues.
Every bit of information helps.
Unfortunately I wasn't born with all the knowledge needed to diagnose every problem.
The fun part is learning and I am glad you pointed out the thread...
