  2. quoted 15 pounds of refrigerant. Don't they pump the ref. back into the condenser?

    Hello all,
    Just had a service call on my Carrier Infinity. Coil froze yesterday. The AC tech that came out told my mom the coil was rusted and installed backwards. The last time it was repaired...

    This is sort of what I was wondering if was happening to me. It seemed like the AC had to work so hard to "recover" that there was no savings over keeping the unit locked on the same temp. I might...

    Yes indeed, actually last month was about $310.00 which I thought was pretty good considering. Alas the highest I have ever had, but given the heat and drought not bad. But I don't understand why...

    Hi Buddy,
    Keep in mind, AHS can't help you if your unit is not wired right, or undersized. When they saw the missing wiring, they backed out of the picture. I guess I see their side too, albeit...

    Hi Buddy,
    Well it turned out, the builder didn't run a heavy enough circuit to the furnace. Apparently the unused breakers are a totally separate circuit, so my folks had to have another 220...

    Hi there!
    Not a professional but I have heard and read that closing multiple vents is a bad idea. Raises the static pressure on the air handler and probably other things. I am sure some of the nice...

    Hi Dash,
    Yeah my thoughts too..Given I am using the 12K portable and it can't do it figured I would have to stay with at least that size on anything else. I have tried several online free tools but...

    Hi there,
    Humidity in the room usually hangs around 55% (when it's nearly 90% outside) isn't that pretty close to normalish? I know the Infinity inside the house keeps the house right around 52%...

    Humidity doesn't seem to be too much of an issue, like I mentioned during the ac season the hot tub isn't used much, maybe once or twice a month and otherwise it's closed up tight(even the poor ole...
