My upstairs heat pump replacement saga continues.
My contractor (friend of mine) started the install yesterday. He is pretty good at explaining things to me, but I stay out of his way when he is working.
When he had installed my 1st floor system a while ago he was not happy with the external TXV on the Payne unit.
He said the Goodman unit I was now getting for the upstairs install was much better because the TXV was already built in to the air handler evaporator.
Since I knew what the TXV looked like on the Payne (he had shown me) I asked him to show me how it was built in to the Goodman AH coil.
Well guess what, the Goodman didn't have a TXV, just an orifice setup. When I questioned him about it he said this setup would get the 13 SEER and not to worry about it.
Should I question him some more about this or let it go?
What am I loosing by not having the TXV?
