Home inspectors are like a lottery, I have been selling some of the rental homes
I bought in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Some of the inspectors will trip over a
problem and get up and keep going, lately...
You can pump down with most any good condition compressor. Best case is
to listen to the compressor, stop when compressor is laboring hard. When I
do pump down, I do not let the compressor run...
Recently flew to Scotland on the Dreamliner. Quite a plane.
Do not think dry units will be around much longer, at the Rheem supply shop the other day, they
are really moving the dry charged units, picked up a few myself, as I always keep 4 sizes in stock,...
Have a good customer with old style Honeywell t stat where there is a single switch for heat cool on off, two levers on top for heat setting and
cool setting. They get them mixed up and never get...
No, once installed it becomes a collection
issue. Having no signatures does not help.
The gas company here subs out all their turn on-s, and shut offs. These guys are all new to
the business. They just have sniffers, and bubbles.
Any issues at all, you get a red tag. If you...
The old stuff did last forever, but not very efficient. Just replaced 2 Chrysler Airtemp split ac's, both installed in March 1971.
A 3 ton r22 split ac, and a 1.5 ton r22 split ac. The 3ton...
Nice clear video, I love landing at night,
All the lights.
DFW is biggest airport I have landed at.
Getting ready to replace 2 very old Chrysler Air Temp split
systems. I have attached the data plates on the condensers,
does anyone know the tonnage. Believe one is 3 ton and the
other 1.5 ton....
Now you have it, this is the right combination. I use Big Blue more that my H10.
I agree the older ones last forever, but some of the newer stuff, not that long a life.
How long do you usually see liquid line
In refigeration where the system cycles about
20 to 25 times per day, I have been noticing
they last about 5 years, at least in mid...
I am working on a pair of twinned Goettl furnaces. I got one running, and will work on getting the second
one running tomorrow.
The blowers worked, gas furnace did not work on either one.
The only advice I can give is simple. Be on time, do the job like you care, call when you say you will, follow up always, answer all
calls, fix on time, treat the customer like a king. I never BS...
One more turn would have done it.
I used to get upset at these adds, but have come to realize they can make you good money at the same time.
I just repaired a botched install last week of a Rheem heat pump. They got some of the...
I can only figure there is plenty of 22 available at the moment. Refrigerant company I buy from emailed me with some
great skid pricing, so I purchased a skid of 22, and a mixed skid of 134a, and...
It is next to impossible to get all possible parties to sign a waiver, simply because if something ever does go wrong, you never
know who could be involved. If you have something to loose, you must...
One of my clients, is getting ready to build a very large
warehouse. It will be right at 300,000 square feet.
Their architects have visited with them about chillers, and
ice storage (thermal )...
Only use originals, no substitute stuff. 22 has really dropped in price, I just received
a few skids of 22 so I am good for a few years.
404a has dropped quite a bit also.
Years ago I combed 15 rtu's from a hail storm. Charged by the hour, they also had one of their guys help me
do the easy ones.
Compressor was shorted out. Brakers were blown. Unit has a piston for metering.
I blew out the system both ways with nitrogen, system clean. 3 phase 230volt.
Condenser coil was so dirty,...
Since it was dead when I saw it, and pressure switches were disconnected, I would bet high discharge pressure.
When I put gauges on it had plenty of pressure in the system. We will never know if...
Dryer is correct, this unit has had 3 previous compressor replacements. They never maintain
These units. I installed that dryer because of all the burnouts. I picked up this account because the...
Just replaced a compressor on a Carrier Weathermaker II.
Can you figure why it got so hot???
A friend of mine got a Tesla S model about 1 month ago, rode in it 10 days ago.
Nice car, nice interior, great car for someone with not much to do though.
Not for me, and not worth the price...
I would check the pipe leading to the pressure switch, usually it is 1/4 inch, and clogged with minerals, which makes the
pressure switch slow to detect pressure drops. Your tank could be water...
Went on a service call to a ranch 35 miles outside of Austin, to a 4000 sq ft house on a good sized ranch.
House had been empty since 1999, and now has a family moving into it. They needed 2 Ruud...
Heck, just put clothes pins on them.....
They caught a guy here that hacks cards, and quickly uses the card info.,
to buy fuel. He had a truck with special tanks, so he could buy $600 to
$1000 of fuel, then sell the fuel later, pure...
Should have blown the fuse or breaker quick.
I can't think of a single model that is only 24" wide.
I have seen where Chicago is cooking in 100 degree heat. Last year Texas
had about 100+ days of 108 degrees, it is brutal.
This year we are doing better, only had a few days in 100+ heat.
These have positive pressure oil pumps. System does have a low oil
pressure diff switch.
The heads are not discolored.
On the last unit that died, I pulled the oil pressure sensor, and the...
This is a loaded question, and am sure answer varies, but here goes....
How long should a new Copeland Semihermetic compressor last in a
I have two Heatcraft refigeration...
Does it matter, tennant would not change it anyway.
I am not happy with it, (how anyone can buy anything online, or through
suppliers that sell to anyone) but we are going to have to learn to live with it.
I have picked up some good jobs fixing...
After cleaning coils, you may want to think of installing a higher rpm motor
to increase the airflow across coil.
I have done this on several occasions where cu's were installed in garages,...
Sometimes after seeing things like this, I am amazed, but then again
sometimes I am not.
Just common sense, and walking around listening, and feeling for airflow
will give you a good picture...
I did not know copper theives could read..........
The different colored tanks is good eyecatcher.
Last year during our 108 degree heat wave a/c units were in need of
massive repairs. I was checking one out, and across the street some
The feed side looks like aluminum wire, without and anti oxidation goo
on the wire connections also.
The unit to the left was a working Weather King, I believe the only reason
someone did not steal it, was someone was living in the unit, and I bet
who ever stole the other one, knew the resident,...
This area is like a war zone. Strange thing is all the areas around this
small war zone are now nice residental areas. This street is 3 blocks
big, and all 4 plexes. My guess is most renters are...
Got a call at the same fourplex, I went to a few weeks back. This time
the call was accurate, someone stole the ac.
Got there, yep its gone. I have a helper this week, so I am going to
Leasing makes the lessor money, pure and simple.
Back in the late 70's I worked for a leasing company for about 7 months,
you need to talk directly to the lessor, not through the dealer. The ...
I thought with gas going up, prices on vans would go down. Not quite
prices are staying high, and actually going up some.
I like to get a recent model year with about 2k miles to 6k miles. That...
Good luck trying to warranty that.....
I have wondered that at times, but no question in this area. A duplex
a few doors down was hit also, only had one missing though.
