    LOL Considering I wouldn't use CO2 myself for pressurizing a system, that leaves the only use of this thing to blowing out coils and condensation lines... So, do yourself a favor, considering just...

    Hi Kelly-

    Besides insisting they go in the ATTIC (yes its hot up there but it just has to be done) to tape/seal all those openings in the duct- have them check and make sure your ductwork is...

    Genduct: If I misunderstood your statement, I apologize, but did you mean the condensation would be up in the soffit running back? Not sure, but it appears that its forming on the ducting tree...

    Hmmm... I'll try to answer them all (lol) hope I don't miss anyone. Filter is new, Evap is suprisingly clean for a 40+yr old unit, I didn't check Delta right at the coil but the temp drop in the...
  10. Excessive Condensation on duct work after A.H.

    This isn't an uncommon problem in the Apt's where I work but I do have one unit which has excessive condensation forming on the duct tree right after the air-handler. It's so-much-so, that it's...

    Really? That is encouraging news... They're small 1.5 and 2 ton 10 seer split units. is there any merit to pressure testing lineset/coil before a retrofit on this type of project or what do you...

    No, I apologize, if I might clarify, the main reason was age and condition of many of them from lack of cleaning over the years or improper cleaning, poor coil condition, etc. My point to them all...

    We discussed this option at work but the two things that kept us from doing it are a) old coils (they're original, about 40yrs old) and b) the linesets. Linesets are barely large enough for the 22...
