    OK, so how did you do that, X? You never stated what modifications you've done to your house to reduce the heat gain that much. I'm guessing you have quite a few trees shading your house, but...

    They replaced the TXV. Tech took readings, and left me with the following:

    OAT: 85 *F
    High: 205 psi
    Low: 79 psi
    SC: 13 *F
    SH: 15 *F

    The gurgling is gone at the valve now; it sounds like a...

    Yes. But would they have pro-status on hvac-talk.com? Regardless, that doesn't change my opinion that it should be open to everyone. Obviously that's still up to the admins here.

    The garage gets hot on hot days. It usually runs about 5-10 degrees cooler than the outdoor temp. The LL temp is one degree cooler at the evap than it is at the condenser. I will try to get...

    Duh, I should have known that. As usual, the tech didn't write them down. The only readings I've gotten in writing from any of the companies I've had out is because I asked them to write them down.

    TXV isn't adjusted, and unfortunately, the bulb isn't replaceable. Bulb is replaceable on some commercial TXVs, right? Seems dumb to me that the charge in the bulb could go bad (for whatever...

    Hey shophound. Are you saying that you think there's a problem with the CFM going across the e-coil, or being delivered to the supply registers?
