    All billing should be consistent and straightforward. Anything else just annoys the customer and might bring regulatory hassles from consumer protection agencies.

    What if you put a check valve on the indoor side of the wall, where it's too warm to freeze?

    Does code require you to glue the elbow or tee on the termination point? If not, just pull it off and...

    Those are your tools, or the installers left theirs up there?

    Looks like User Error now.
    When I stuck my thermometer into the flex boot, it was touching the side of the flex, which was cooler than the actual airflow temp.

    Right now, 53 ODT, 75 return...

    Not proposed as a fix, just as a diagnostic test.
    I will admit to considering a MERV 16 filter as a fix, you can laugh at that if you want. (I put on my flame resistant underwear before starting...
  8. If I understand this correctly, too much airflow...

    If I understand this correctly, too much airflow means the indoor coil is being cooled too much by that airflow?

    And if the return air were warmer, that problem would be lessened?

    Or I could...
  9. New heat pump, low temp rise, tech says it's fine.

    1. I bought it on the net and installed it myself. If I were closer to anybody on the AOP map I might have done it differently.

    2. My ducts were sized for a 100k, 80% furnace (well, probably...

    Reminds me of the time I bought a 5-2-1 start kit.
    Came with a screw mount zip tie to hold that big start cap to the unit.
    And the cap was straight sided, so it could have slid right out of the...

    I corked mine off with Dixie cups.
    Then, when I wanted heat and turned the furnace on, it refused to open the gas valve and the red light on the control board started blinking.
    Oops.

    Does Cutler Hammer / Eaton still make BR style HACR breakers?

    Yes, Copeland.
    Goodman GSZ130181, has suction accumulator, discharge muffler, high and low pressure switches, crankcase heater and factory installed liquid line filter-drier. Line set brazed while...

    I sure wanted exaggerated, because the system never did anything discernible from the outside while in heating mode, and it was too cold to run in cooling mode without disabling the fan or blocking...

    Unless there's a strong feeling that all I need is a gas and go, I think the next company that comes out here should be the company I would choose for a compressor replacement.
  16. I provided more complete info on a DIY forum,...

    I provided more complete info on a DIY forum, enough to convince myself the compressor was bad.
    Didn't think it would be a good idea to post my DIY diagnosis efforts here, but if you want to see...

    Internet purchase. Needed to be professionally installed or professionally inspected for warranty according to the seller. Opted for the latter. He showed up without his tools, looked it over, wrote...

    You think the equipment is OK and the charge is off?
    Pull the whole charge and weigh it?
    That's what BeenThere said on the other forum, and it has to be pulled before anybody can work on it if I'm...

    Defective and open? Would that make a hissing noise (that I don't have)?
    High pressure switch should have kicked in before the relief valve opened, right?
    It never made high pressure in the line...

    158 or so.
    The gauges don't really move when the compressor kicks in.
    I'm surprised the RV moves.

    Starts instantly (with 5-2-1 kit), don't know how many running amps but voltage drop is low. Runs quietly. Takes a couple of seconds to stop turning when you pull the disconnect.

    Outlet is warm,...
  22. I'm just wondering what would happen if it...

    I'm just wondering what would happen if it spilled into the accumulator, because I think that is below the gas fittings on the compressor.

    This is on a factory charged unit that was mounted on a...

    And you can't cause an immediate compressor failure this way?
    In other words, if the unit doesn't make heat in the first 10 minutes, it's not because the installer rolled it around on a hand truck...
  24. So, if it was tilted 45-60 for 30 seconds to a...

    So, if it was tilted 45-60 for 30 seconds to a minute, oil might have migrated to the accumulator, which would reduce life far in the future, or have immediate results?

    And there is no problem...
  25. Tilting of copeland scrolls before installation

    Why is it that compressors aren't supposed to be tilted/laid on their sides?

    If it's oil migration, can you fix it by leaving the unit sitting level for some period of time before startup?
