This may come as a surprise , but uh , this isnt a" hands on experience " chatroom. What can we possibly offer that the school hasnt already taught after a years time ?
There are plenty of videos on youtube
This area is for techs , sorry but thats the way it is
Generally speaking we don't post ANY "step by step" info in the open forums.

Sounds to me like you need an apprenticeship....

come on give the guy a break<<< he is trying to learn as we were at some time
100 years ago when i was first starting beer can cold was the way it was taught. as time went on you learn the right way
google super heat and subcooling
norn chriss is the best when it come to this and has a few articals on the subject
good luck and keep striving
Read through your book for proper methods of charge. Get a sliding charging chart from local supply company. The way to shave time down is not having to come back to a call you just left. Just learn from your mistakes youll be alright.
Same feeling here, hkempf. I was blown away by the negativity. I'm glad all of you were able to locate and attend a "high class"
trade school. Mine was crappy, and I needed the help of others (and still do) to learn the hands on part. Poster could be a DIYer, but could be just a newbie (with possibly poor training) that needs some help. Isn't that what this sight is about??
I know the trade school guys near me are pretty sad, I saved money and did it all in the field, I do wish I went to school for the basics. I cant believe a school didn't teach that stuff.
Guys really? Think about it most tech schools are all books. I luckly went to one that was half books and hands on. Google utube go to a library. People forget where they came from... sad man tryin to make it in the world gets shot down.

Think about it.
And, to those that have suggested YouTube as educational material are giving potentially BAD advice.
While there is some good advice on YouTube, there is a TON of VERY BAD advice out there, too.
Read the manufacturer's literature and re-re-read your texts. The information is buried in there.
I'd also suggest the following:
Professional Membership on this site. It's free and you have access to some of the best and brightest HVAC/R guys you'll EVER meet.
This is what I do, to the point my wife is getting pissed in on here all the time lol. The its for my job excuse isn't working anymore lol.

Not saying post info so every home owner can learn. Just all the negative comments. And yes the op should start out like every pro here has (epa certified techs here)
