    I personally am waiting to find a gently used NV for the right price. Rear wheel drive, tons of room, and made by Nissan, which in my experience means darn near bulletproof.

    That reminds me of the guy who had his smoke detector off the wall, on the counter, battery taken out and couldn't figure out how it was still beeping. The beeps were coming from his answering...

    I charge a service call fee that is for the first 30 minutes, they get charged that regardless. Since you are already there you might as well give em 30 mins worth anyway, check the temps, check the...

    You are right that heat pump heat is not as warm as oil heat, but you shouldn't be lowering fan speeds on your own to try and make it that way. That can cause you problems. Your installer should set...

    The installer should be able to wire it up and set up the system as you want if he has the instructions for the thermostat. If you dont still have them google search "honeywell 8000 instructions" If...

    All I can tell you is if a txv fails to open your SST will be too low, not too high. If it fails to close your superheat will be too low, not too high. How can it be overfeeding (resulting in the...

    SST was 55, or suction pressure was 55? Was it really hot inside as well? 55 SST is pretty high, txv may have already been wide open in which case holding the bulb wouldn't make a change anyway. Need...

    I use air acetylene because it is a better choice for me. For actual brazing I would agree o/a is better, but that is only a small part of the equation. You also have to buy the equipment, refill the...

    No, but it is like saying you are applying an equal amount of rotational force in opposite directions. That is the difference. You have to remember heat is not just sensible, it is also latent. Just...

    I think you had the "how" right but not the "why." The liquid does not boil to cool itself down, the liquid cools down because some of it boils. But if you really want to keep the jargon simple...

    You are only half right. The liquid is going to maintain its temp pressure relationship like you said, but the reason it boils is because it is no longer subcooled. The small amount of refrigerant...
