    With me the refrigerant running through the low side suction line is usually in the state of NJ. It might be different for you - where are you?

    No; a dirty condenser coil is not a bad compressor.

    Your questions are nonsensical. "cooled or heated" relative to what?

    Why are you trying to ask these questions? Are you taking a test?

    NJ here also. Read the book. Usually in the first chapter.

    OK; enough of that ball breaking fun - tell me what you are up to there. Why are you asking these questions?

    Look; I will tell you anything you want to know - but don't leave my nibby-nosed ass out in the dark here. <g>
