    Yep. This is definitely one of the best I have come across. He acted surprised when I told him that his duct work wasn't right. I'm sure the x-13 motor that's in the unit won't last long.

    Xl16i pressure transducer.

    I'm about to replace a pressure transducer on a xl16i heat pump. Is there a shader valve under it or do I need to recover the refrigerant. Thanks in advance!

    If I'm not mistaken, to get true locked rotor amps you need to get an amp reading of the run and start winding at the same time with a good run cap. With an actual locked rotor.

    Gam5036 can move 1205 cfm at .5 static. The ari rating is at 1335 cfm. At .3 it can move 1301 cfm. I don't think it can do it with tight ductwork.
