Well, furnace on the washing machine circuit is against the NEC regardless of how it's done....
What exactly is/was that fuse doing and why is it needed? Protecting the outlet and furnace was plugged into the outlet or what? Isn't there a fuse/breaker at the service panel?
I think at that point maybe they'll just quote a 3rd curb adapter...
I think it's to keep fingers out since the grill is missing. Not sure it'd be very effective at keeping the fingers out though.
I don't understand your logic. Why would you *WANT* your unit to cycle constantly, wearing out contactors, relays, and start components, causing temperature and humidity swings, and significantly...
Payson, the theif will probably turn you in to the EPA and get the $10K reward.
Is that a stainless gas connector on the water line between thost water heaters?
Why can't you do 45 degree water with R-22? That's pretty standard for comfort cooling.
If the desired temp is 45, and leaving water temp is 25, how is that not cold enough?
If you put one in heat mode and one in cool, does it become a cascade system?
What are they doing in there that they need 7 tons for 1600 sq ft?
It's all sealed up with that new invisible mastic.
Is that a drier vent next to it? And a disconnect closer to the front of the house not attached to anything? What's that box that's partially underground? Looks like a meter socket to me...
And the supply house was out of 1.5 ton units http://www.hvac-talk.com/vbb/images/icons/icon15.gif
Why is it even there?
Looks to me like they are all connected together and there's no outlet
If the filter driers are in fact clogged, I can't help but wonder how enough crap got in a new system to clog them.
Not if it's more than 6 feet off the floor.
It's not functionally. If the correct breaker is installed, it might could be considered "safe" even. But is it right? Does it look very professional? Would you want YOUR name on it?
Maybe once the copper gets hot enough, the solder melts and the copper falls out, acting as a fuse. http://hvac-talk.com/vbb/images/icons/icon10.gif
Payson, did you call up the EPA and turn in that ELK for venting refrigerant?
That is a high pressure switch on the back of the compressor. The R-12 systems just had a popoff valve that vented to the atmosphere. 134a systems still have that, but they are also required to...
How did you miss the recovery part?
"There might be some pressure in the system when you loosen the connection, but it doesn't matter if a little leaks out because it's only 134a"
I've got one of those on my own unit. I love it. It has noticably reduced the amount of dust in the house, and the evap and blower wheel stay spotless. Only thing I dislike is it's a pain to...
Look at the third one from the right. I bet the owner said "Ain't cold enough in here, I want a bigger, badder unit than everyone else"
If I read it right, they still have the variable speed compressor, so the controller was still needed.
