    Thanks Mike19,

    Yes the condenser unit has a receiver.

    Can you recommend a specific type of pressure switch. What would the cut-in cut-out settings be?

    I'm surprised this sparked a debate on TXV sizing. I've always thought the TXV or piston is sized to the condensor.

    I added the TEL up. I looked up the fittings in an ACCA friction rate book. It looks like the square duct with start collars is about twice as restrictive than the TY's.

    I have a question regarding duct design and lay out.

    Picture a rather large diameter flex (16" or 18") running from a plenum to a square to round fitting that's connected to a...
