    Not sure of the technical term, but think of a digital meter as actually taking (and displaying) quick measurements, and the likelihood that the peak value is occurring between those measurements....

    ::DD: ::DD:

    I was chuckling at the other Star Trek references, but I literally laughed out loud at this one! Good one, TB.

    Rigging equipment. Chainfall or come-along, pieces of chain with hooks, nylon straps, clevices, eye-bolts. Let that stuff do your heavy lifting for you. Even your medium lifting, so you can enjoy a...

    Kefah!!
    It is very good to hear from you!
    As you can see, many people here are concerned for you.
    I am glad to hear that you are ok.
    I hope you and your family are able to stay safe.
    I hope the...

    The same effect can be seen on a chiller with a flooded evaporator when there is so much oil in the refrigerant that the refrigerant is saturated with it, and can't absorb any more. Any additional...

    The pressure on the water is higher (less vacuum) than the pressure on the oil. The weight of the oil on the water is why. The vacuum on the water is not being measured.

    I can't answer your questions, but I will advise you to get your agent for your homeowner's insurance involved. He may even the best one to ask those questions. Something similar happened at my...

    It also depends on how the coil is built. Are the two circuits "intertwined", or does each circuit supply half the coil?
  9. Close, Beenthere. But I think it has a single...

    Close, Beenthere. But I think it has a single coil. They have to depend on the staff to change over from cooling to heating.

    When I stay in a hotel that has a PTAC, the first thing I do is find the fan's "On/Auto" switch and change it from "Auto" to "On". The steady sound of the fan running continuously is much less...

    Let me correct myself: The last posted link from the OP is a PTAC (I think that is a case of terminology). But what the OP describes (twice) is a fan coil unit.
  12. A PTAC is a specific type of "packaged",...

    A PTAC is a specific type of "packaged", thru-the-wall mounted, air conditioner. It is not a catch-all term for a wall mounted unit, or a next to the wall unit. You keep describing a fan coil unit...

    Ask the manager, or maintenance staff what kind of unit you have. I thought the first paragraph was describing a simple fan coil unit. Then the link was for a water source heat pump. Usually, the...

    A company "drops" money on a product, not necessarily because it's a good product, but because they believe it will turn a profit. Either now or later. Google is banking more on the "later", when...

    I believe you can take the outside air temperature sensor and connect it to the input for the space temperature sensor and then simply drop it down into the return air duct. The unit will operate at...

    If the compressors are tandem, the Trane replacements will come with instructions on the special install, and any additional parts that may be needed. I don't know if any off the shelf, non-Trane...

    This would probably get more views from more people able to help, if it was posted in a "controls" forum. Maybe a moderator could move it. Or you could "self-report" yourself (click on the black...

    A third scenario occurs to me, based on the repeated reference to being in a pickup truck. Mr. D, you and your wife wouldn't happen to be sitting in the air stream from a duct, would you? I sometimes...

    What normally cools this? If a chiller supplies chilled water to air handlers, there are companies that supply rental chillers. They will deliver and set them up, to make it a turn key job. And they...

    This.

    Maybe they didn't want to expose their scam.

    Also, an infrared (IR) thermometer is the least reliable thermometer there is. Other than a broken thermometer. It is easily manipulated to...

    Do you have family? Are you married?

    I am worried for you.

    We had a problem with the clothes washer drain overflowing. It turned out to be a blocked plumbing vent. I thought of this when the OP mentioned one of the bathtubs was slow to drain.

    Yep. The OVE is a good'un. Great low range throttling. I've seen it "fix" oversized equipment problems. Well, at least minimize the problems to help extend compressor life to a more normal range.
