    HVAC Diagnostics

    Which is the best and easiest method of diagnosing an air condition or heating system? - The old-timer's method or the air diagnostics method? - I can see a lot of room for error in both situations, but especially the latter.

    My method has been proven superior time and time again. I may write a book someday.

    I prefer to use the diagnostic tools in my VETO.

    I suggest you hire someone who knows what they are doing.

    Hopefully it just poor judgement on his part and he'll prove us wrong.

    Okay, I have to ask this. Please, don't take this the wrong way.

    Question; is English your second language, or are you just someone who is incapable of articulating their agenda?

    You are displaying a habit of throwing out a question, or making a statement, but you also regularly fail to engage the other members here in any meaningful dialog. There is a lot of allusion to knowledge you say you have, and opinions you claim to hold, but there is never any display of actual knowledge or a clear explanation of the opinions you mention.

    For example, what in the world is the "old timer's method?" Would that be the method used to repair air conditioning for oh, 75 years? And why, I wonder aloud, would you opine that the counterpoint to such a method would be called the "air diagnostics method?" Such a title implies that the refrigerant cycle would not be a salient aspect. In the end, you have asked in a grammatically complete sentence, but made little sense in terms of content or context.

    As Andy Rooney might ask, "why is that?"

    And yes, the gif image does imply that I may indeed be beating a dead horse.....

    Frankly, I'm a little suspicious about the fact that his profile sys he has been a regular member since December 2008, yet he has a handful of posts that beg the question: does this person even work in HVAC?

    For some reason, my gut has a very difficult time picturing the member in question going to the back of a truck, taking out a compressor, and installing it. That said, there is always another potential explanation of what can be seen as odd behavior in web forums.

    But, I doubt it.
