    quick-connect on Friedrich

    I just became aware of the Friedrich "Breeze" systems geared toward
    the DIY market, which evidently come with a pre-charged lineset
    and this wacky both-at-once quick connector with a big locking...

    clearing a leak

    Hopefully this doesn't tread too close to DIY but I've got some
    friends who are in a pickle this warm Sunday evening and can't
    get anybody in until tomorrow. They've got an a/c unit in the
    attic...

    Thanks for the responses so far! The end goal, really, is simply
    determining whether to run my HP system on high fan or low fan
    in heating mode, and have broader perspective on the advantages
    or...

    Heating airflow theory Q

    In the tradition of my little headscratchers which are either
    thought-provoking or totally stupid, I'm not sure which, here's
    another theory question. This would be a purely heating scenario,...

    Wet duct

    Hopefully this doesn't tread too far toward DIY territory, but
    I've got a little problem with a cold-air intake that someone
    might have some insight into. You guys must deal with
    fresh-air inlet...

    cold weather operation

    I've got a couple of general questions about heat-pump operation
    in cold ambients. One practical, one more theory.

    Most units either have a crankcase heater or use the inverter to

    heat pump fan high or low?

    Swinging into heating season here, I'm wondering if it's better
    to run a heat pump's AHU blower at a higher or lower speed?
    While lower is better for summer dehumidification, if we're only...

    EXV forced closure?

    I recently noticed that my air handler / indoor coil has a pair
    of dry-contact input terminals to force its EXV to CLOSED during
    cooling mode.

    When/why would you want to do this, and/or why...

    Daikin: no emergency operation??

    digital 'stat interface, as opposed to the typical W1/W2/Y/G/etc bundle
    of wires between a typical stat and an indoor unit. ...
