    OK, so we're all agreed that the vacuum method would detect a leak? There's a small area of bent fins, and a little crease where the corner of the object must have smashed the fins.

    I want to...

    My HVAC Contractor bent some fins on my brand new evaporator. He "pulled a vacuum" of 500 microns(?) and determined that there were no leaks in the system. I don't know for how long that reading...

    Hi,

    I'm just double checking here.

    I'm moving my heat pump to another side of the house. The ground there is sloped, and I really don't want to level the ground in that area.

    Can I just...

    Just curious,

    Is a Homeowner purchasing equipment on the net and getting an HVAC guy to install it a DIY'er?

    I would think not.

    I'm not a dealer or a pro, but I can repeat what Goodman Mfg. told me over the phone about their "great" warranty.

    First and foremost, the warranty explicitly states that the warranty is null and...

    Well, perhaps my approach IS flawed. That's one reason I'm listening in.

    But when a company (Goodman) tells me that its own warranty has issues, I think I should listen. And I think I finally...

    I don't know if I agree with the "check with your friends" advice. Lots of people like their AC guys, but there are lots of stories on the wall of shame where I'll bet the maintenance techs were...

    I still don't think I can compare the quality and workmanship of a 30 year old Rheem AC to a new Rheem heat pump...apples and oranges, I'm convinced. What is probably more germane...

    Ding! Too bad there's not an icon for a hammer hitting my head.

    You mean the "liquid line", of course.

    And I take the point that if there's a leak, then there's a leak, and it don't much...

    OK, so far so good, so if I see the oil residue, which leak am I seeing? The freon coming back in to the compressor, or the freon leaving the compressor?

    I guess seeing the liquid leak doesn't...

    I've got a question, being an owner of a very leaky AC unit... my leaks leave freon smudge all over the place... you don't need a detector to see where the units leak.

    Do you mean that the coil (or compressor) is blamed by the installer and returned under warranty, but in 33% of the cases, the installer is wrong?

    Food for thought.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I'm replacing my 30 year old Rheem AC with a Carrier Heat Pump system, replacing pretty much everything. While I'm at it, I'm thinking of moving the outdoor unit to another part of the yard. ...
