    TXV, no question. It maintains a constant superheat where a fixed does not. This protects your compressor and helps your system perform better.
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    I have to agree with the fixed. even though you cant acheive the required superheat{ which is a game invented by the goverment} service for the tech and consumer is much more feasible.

    Somebody's been feeding you a line of bull.If you have a tech that can't service a txv, tell them to step away from the unit and get someone who can.You get better system performance with a txv. You also get constant superheat. Show me this with any fixed orifice system.

    Obviously longer than you, or at least more informed.Register as a pro and post this in the pro's forum, you do realise Jacob was messing with you don't you?
