Havac, I have tried to make sense of this but if you have a refrigerant leak locate it and repair it. Your are a moron if you want to filter your refrigerant without a burnout and for no good reason. If you can't find the leak call someone who does this everyday. You do sound like a building engineer about now. P.S. I have never seen a 400 question study guide for the EPA test, keep reading you almost have us fooled!
"Please read through the following rules and instructions.
HVAC Pros, please note; home owners are welcome to ask questions here, if you do not wish to be helpful that is fine but do not intimidate, obstruct or criticize those that wish to be more helpful than you. If you do not like a particular thread or topic, do not reply."
I should have posted that a long time ago!!
Thanks again to the Tech's who made and effort to give constructive advice. I apologize to those who I attacked in defending myself.
NEVER take any replies you get on this website personally. And remember, ANY time you post something nonstandard, you will get flamed. Big time. It happens to me all the time. I have probably been called stupid, idiotic, etc, more times on this website than I have in my whole lifetime.
You should interpret the results like this:
If everyone flames you, then that means your idea has a "high" probability of failure.
If almost everyone flames you, then that means your idea has a "moderate" probability of failure.
If, on the other hand, only about half the people flame you, then that means that your idea holds water, and may well work.
