    Well, the problem kept persisting. So I purchased a recommended replacement drop-in (since the original relay is about 17 years old, the new one looks different but has the same T1-T2-T3) for less...

    I'll have to post another pic once I do the work. I'm usually one to go above and beyond the work of the job. Hm, maybe I should chrome the pipes. ;)

    Heh, just wasn't in the mood for cleaning. I'll do that when I put some tubing on. I measured the temperature of the circulating air, seems to be about 126 °F while the piping is around 40-50 (didn't...

    So if I added some insulation it wouldn't screw anything up? Just trying to gain little bits of performance here and there.

    All the little bits should be able to add up to something. From the the...

    Missing insulation? Or by design?

    Opened up the inside of my outside compressor. Found this pipe without any insulation, about 32 inches long. It's the cold pipe, as you could probably see from the condensation. Shouldn't there be...

    Another status update. The A/C system is actually still doing the same problem as it was last season. My brother in-law had a look at it yesterday and it seems like the solid state timing relay may...

    Well, we asked the tech and said that it's normal for this particular unit. And that's why it's lasted as long as it has, it's about 16 years old now. So I'm happy now that everything is repaired....

    I mean in anyone's experience, would there be a noticeable difference if you used R13 compared to R19 in your walls or the bottom of the roof? I see that R13 is very cheap, but of course R19 is more...

    Well the guy checked it out this morning and measured over an amp on the motor. I guess that motor should be drawing around 0.9. His theory is that the motor is heating up and shutting down. Sounds...

    Had it on since just a while ago. The compressor was on, but it seems after about a half hour or so the compressor unit just turned off but the fan was still on, it hadn't reached down to 78 yet. The...

    No, just my wife and I. We're creatures of habit, so things usually stay the same around here.

    I just let it stay off for about an hour and tried it again. It's about 72 outside and 83 inside, and...

    Well there's nothing different this month than last month other than the compressor not turning on and cooling the freon line. Heck, I'm not even running folding@hold on my GTX285 video card like I...
  15. Compressor doesn't activate later in the day when cooler

    What would make a compressor not turn on later in the day once it gets colder outside than it is inside?

    I keep my thermostat set to 78. And for example it was about mid 80's today. All throughout...

    How about a difference between the pink fiberglass R-13 and R-19? R-13 seems more popular than R-19 on HD's website. Would a garage in R-13 still gets fairly hot?

    Yea, the inside ceiling is just beams with flat wood behind it, and the roof stuff behind the flat wood. The outside of the roof is completed, but there's just no inside finishing. So the temperature...

    Garage ceiling insulation recommendations

    Hi. I'm looking into getting my garage ceiling insulated. It looks unfinished and all I see are beams and flat wood. It's a little bit of a vaulted ceiling and can get quite hot in the summer temps...
