    I know your right about the cost, but It would be a pain in the ass to try to explain that to the 15 plus office staff I help support. I swear, half the positions in the office were created out of...

    I new which refrigerant to use for this system, the colours of the R22 and R134A tanks are both greenish and that's where I messed up. I think I need to start storing them on opposite ends of the...

    On that same visit, I changed a faulty defrost clock on their WIF because the motor stopped turning 3 months ago. Believe it or not, they had one guy there that would turn the dial 3-4 times a day...

    It didn't really change anything. The head pressure went up 5psi. In theory, the R-134A could be retrieved by getting it from the discharge. But I don't know how it blends with the R-22. To...
  5. I accidently 134 A'd when I should have 22'd

    A walk-in cooler I was working on had a small leak from a swivel tee fitting. I added a pound of refrigerant and the sight glass was full (the owner was only willing to buy one pound). While, as I...

    Your idea of a time clock will fix it. But, you're just giving it an 'off cycle'. Maybe the high ambient temp is infiltrating into the case and forcing this unit to run for long periods of time...

    Are they coming from out of province? What company are you with? If you take a packaged A/C unit and bring it indoors and run it in A/C mode, it will become a dehumidifier. Was this trip organized...

    Is the 24 volt transformer grounded? I've had a similar problem and it turned out that there was two transformers connected in, one from the unit and one from a dehumidifier. The transformers have...
  9. My equipment is heavy! There's gotta be another way!

    At least once or twice a day I have to haul around my tools, a B-tank, a vacuum pump, a nitrogen tank, a reclaimer, a cylinder or two, gauges, cords etc..... Has anyone out there come up with some...

    The part located between the TXV and the distributer is an Auxiliary Side Connecter (ASC). This may be a system that uses either a method of capacity control, like 'Bypass to Evaporator', or uses a...

    I took the BCIT ELTT for first year and 10 years later attended JARTS for the rest. The ELTT course was 6 or 7 months long and very intensive, but looking back, the knowledge I obtained from the...

    First of all, R-134A is a very inefficient refrigerant. Also, putting it in a system not designed for R-134A won't work because compressor pumping capacities are designed for specific refrigerants...

  18. Should I add a crank case heater to my heat pump?

    I have recently installed a 2 ton York LX series YHJF heat pump at my house. I have it set up so the compressor is locked out anytime it's below 45deg F and then the furnace takes over. York says...

    The circuit was on a 15 amp breaker, which isn't ideal for this unit. It only had a port on the suction side. Another thing I'd forgot to mention, the compressor's external overload started to trip...

    I think I figured it out. After burning my arm on the liquid line, yeah the liquid line, I figured that there could be non-condensables in the condenser. I pulled the charge, brazed in an access on...

    I'd recommend Haakon Units. They're built in the U.S. & Canada. All the guys that I've talked to say these air handlers have the best quality.
