Agreed. I did the first couple of work orders without to much thought into how the salesperson sold. I am starting to see the differences between commercial and residential. I see a lot more...

What brand have you seen that on? I have only run into the timed controls. W1 stays energized for 7 mins, then moves to W2 if the thermostat is not satisfied..etc.
Also, with many of these...

I also do the service side of things and had a 3 jobs with some pretty decent banging issues. Turns out they weren't scored and one had a jumper between W1 and W2. Customers haven't called back. Nor...
Is there a heater in the compartment for the gas valve on the unit? -25C could be a little cold for that valve.
If all the components are clean for heating, flame sensor, burners, etc...try...
Charge by approach? ;)

I have been doing commercial HVAC service for quite a while but just recently just started working with a company that mainly tackles residential HVAC. I have been doing installs of high...
Lenox are expensive and become dull quick.
The door on the new infinity heatpump is gone now as well. It would be pretty hard to pull a 5ton compressor outta one of those suckers.

Yeah I had heard it was a little difficult and that you may have to take your schooling in Alberta. Which is unfortunate as I have schedule my schooling at JARTS and found it to be quite a nice...

I am currently employed but I am very interested in finding some sort of rotational work in Northern Canada (2 weeks on/2 weeks off, etc).
I am a third year apprentice with plans on...
Ah. Now I understand why the burner box is gone and I did notice the steel secondary heat exchanger.
I agree that every manufacturer has problems. I am also a big believer of "if it ain't broke,...
I installed the new edition Carrier 96 today at a customers house. Seems to me like Carrier has gone downhill on the quality of the product. Inside, the furnace looks very similar to a Coleman or...

This is a great idea and one that my girlfriend suggested as well. I have yet to contact the university as I have been working 10-12 hours. Alas, this is a lame excuse and I just need to get my ass...

Thanks a lot for the response guys.
I give a huge amount of respect to the HVAC Trade. You need to know a lot, and every new experience is a learning experience. Some days nothing goes right and...
Installing a new furnace in an older home can have some implications. Is the fan loud when on circulation, heating, or cooling?
When on circulation usually the fan runs at 30% of max.
If its a...

If your home is an older home with a retrofit furnace installed there could be some issues with static pressure. Like Fabrk8r's stated, its best to use a gasket or sealant around the plenum coming...

I have found Carrier's service to be very very good. Although I was living in a city with a Carrier representive.
R410A is just like any other refrigerant (except ammonia) and it requires a copper lineset. Sizing the lineset will be based on the distance between the condenser and the indoor coil. Special...

Funny thing that propane is heavier then air. I'm liking the thought of people's leaky vehicle A/Cs pooling propane under there cars. Great idea. :whistle:

Thanks for the info. Are these worth buying? Right now I have a set of Titan II Gauges with seal rite hoses.
Also, do most people have separate gauges for each refrigerant? (Eg: one for R-22 and...

At the very start of my apprenticeship I was went on a Residential A/C call. System had a leak. My journeyman showed up during the pressure testing and we could not find the leak so we put more R-22...
