  1. OD unit lost power

    May be something as simple as you outside cut off going open under load, which would not be a warranty issue anyway. Good luck ibis1:patriot:

    I use the Bacharach Informant-2. It's a great detector, very reliable. Although I use it for R-134 and combustible gases (gasoline) it will detect most refrigerants. It may be useful to check for...

    I went with 7.5KW heat, which will pass code, at least in Broward County. I, like you do not see any need for heat at all in our location. A Manual J is always a good idea, but...

    EO,
    If that repair is really 1/3 of the cost of a complete new system, to me it's a no brainer. Better efficiency, comfort and lots longer warranty. Normally you don't scrap a 5 year old unit,...
