    Despite the argument if we agree that with the proper charge in the system and no other problems except a restriction that it CAN cause high head pressure depending on the outdoor coil capacity, then...

    I am not not sure his unit was way over charged and believe him when he said he was sure it wasn't.

    I guess we're back to square one then. I am not familiar with the unit in question but I submit that even if a unit is capable of pumping down the complete charge into the condenser, a high side...

    Go back and read your own post # 17. You used a pump down of the system to show how a metering device could not cause high head pressure. That is what originally brought me into this thread. I...

    Isn't it ironic that I'm the guy who doesn't have a clue but I properly diagnosed the high pressure problem. You on the other hand who is totally clear about the physics of the problem did not...

    If I repeat myself it is only in response to your repetitious failure to put the blame where it belongs to all the parties involved. As for Social Security, I'm not sure where it fits in the health...

    I agree it is an unintended consequence but that's because the gov wasn't smart enough to figure out what the insurance companies were going to do. They didn't have enough foresight to imagine the...

    Once you have a load calculation done on the structure you use the expanded data that matches as close as you can get to the design conditions. Say your design conditions are 95* outside and 75*...

    That makes sense to me. I never wanted to give the impression that an overcharge should not be a factor to consider when seeing high pressure along with a restriction. I only wanted to point out that...

    I'm not so much disagreeing with your defining the cause as I am with the absoluteness of your conclusion.



    I tend to agree with you that the same TXV in another system could cause a low...

    Does that mean we're in partial agreement and that the only thing we disagree on is which types of condenser coils can cause high head with a restriction and no actual overcharge or long line set?

    I would argue a little semantics here.
    First I would say condenser capacity is not really reduced but it is what it is by design. What you're talking about is the amount of refrigerant being over...

    The one we've been arguing about.
    A restriction alone can cause high head pressure without an overcharge or low airflow across the condenser.
    I know it's an unconventional idea that is an exception...

    I just hope that other techs are not influenced too much by your stance on this issue and still keep their minds open to all possibilities. Without going over your entire post I noticed that...

    I feel like I'm arguing with a blind man over what I saw.
    You're assuming the techs are overcharging the systems every time there is a restriction and there is high pressure. But you are admitting...

    Like I said in an earlier post, with all the bad txv's we're going to see a lot more restrictions cause high head pressure than ever before. It's not going to be as rare an occurrence so we've got to...

    What happened would be (# 3 - a Restriction) which you did not list as an option. (Physics) A metering device is a designed restriction which is necessary to...
