Sounds like you work for an unreasonable employer. But with jobs being so hard to get...
You might be right... what I was thinking was that IF it would work okay, then the manufacturers of contactors would be using shorter coils and saving $0.001 worth of copper. That they aren't was a...
Henry Barclay, one of my instructors when I went to PTEC, who used to work at a big university (in the HVAC department). Their PM called for new contactors every year.
And, yes, I know that they...
If the question is still at what ohm reading to replace, there's at least one experienced instructor who says replace every year at the annual inspection.
Thus, if it isn't close to the reading of...
I've read a little about that Chinese drywall and talked to a friend of mine who helped demo some out of a commercial building. It's nasty stuff!! I wouldn't, personally, work around it if I knew...

Yeah, you're right... that has to have been what he meant. I saw the "but system under vacuum" and didn't mentally change it to "put system under vacuum". When I do that, it's obvious--as it was...

As said, you need to know subcool, superheat, AND those pressures.
However, I'd not braze a lineset with a vacuum on it because the vacuum would be trying to suck some braze into the lineset. And...
I like it!!!
I just got a line on a 4 ton condensing unit, working condition, Carrier R-22. I'm going to look at it tomorrow. $. Wondering hot to best match up an inside unit AND wondering if I...
Here's another three recipes, ingredients only. The third one is kind of a combo of the first two and comes out quite well also. The first two I got online somewhere or another and the third one I...
I've tried it (cast iron skillet), a number of times, and even have tried the OnTheGrillRadio recipe by Dominic, formerly Tony Fatso, where you put the batter in an hot, oiled cast iron skillet and...
A good scratch cornbread recipe:
I can get this mixed up and in the oven in about 3-4 minutes... and that includes washing the mixing bowl.
Start preheating your oven to 350 - 375.
Is that the FDR or Crusher? Or another?

Texas is a good place to live. It's not as nice as Florida, which is why I left Texas long ago, but it's not bad at all. The Sherman / Dennison area's gorgeous, and there's some nice lake-type...

Not quite. I'm also a CPA in my 50's, and I'm going to be doing HVAC in the Summer, when it's in high demand. One way or another. Partly because Summers are slow. Partly because the economy has...

I'm available to work part-time or full-time in the Summer.
I'm also available for ride-alongs when someone needs help.

Just got one of these from HD that had been opened--someone stole the tips. I only paid 219.95 so I can afford tips. We'll see how it does.

Upgraded in December to a touch screen and went back to a go-phone with the sim card from the regular phone in it. The go-phones are only about 20 bucks, and if they break they are easily replaced. ...
Tilley T2 is the best for all-around working outside. Mine is about 15 years old and looks every bit of its age; therefore, it's for wear only at home now... I gotta buy another one. I have the...
I have 5 pairs of Red Wings. Two pair are the Chinese-made ones, and they're holding up better than one pair of the USA-made ones. One pair is low-top basic black, and they double for dress shoes...
I've been to two goat ropings and a county fair and ain't seen one that good.

As several folks have noted, this has been a hot summer for all y'all in Texas. But, even though the weather is hot and the unit began cycling again in the late evening, and you had it serviced in...
