    Ok I know this is strange, but I am doing research for tax purposes for a client that has a ton of parts for AC units. I am a little bit lost on some of the items and want to know if someone can lend me their expertise. First question I have is what is a header, and what is it used for? I have various sizes, some header assemblies, and header tubes. I just need to know what those types of items are. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your response. So there is no particular item on an AC unit of any kind that is in general called a header? This item may be used when building the unit, or possibly a replacement part. One example of what I am researching is HEADER ASSEMBLY 7/8".

    You would think i could, but unfortunately I can not ask questions because although I am dealing with a manufacturer, I am also dealing with their CPA. It is a rather confusing mess. I just figured I would ask people that work with the stuff on a regular basis, rather then a CPA. I have searched online glossaries, parts dealers and various other sources, but couldn't find anything. This was just a shot in the dark. If it is not a common part, or a term that is used often, please disregard. Thanks for responding and have a fabulous day.

    I still see no reason why you can't ask the owner... after all, you said you are doing this for him?????

    I am dealing with one of the largest manufacturers of AC equipment and parts in the US. The CPA's involved don't care about accuracy in the categorization process like I do, they only care about the final calculation. I am unable to go back to them with 3k plus questions, so I am having to figure this out on my own. Typically when doing this kind of calculation, i can usually find enough information online to figure things out, but in this case I could not. It really sucks, but I have to do what the client and the CPA wants me to. It is not a matter of one item here or there, it is a matter of thousands. Don't worry I am not asking about all of them on here. lol Just wanted some direction. Obviously a header is not a common part on an ac unit. I have found that when doing the research I do in various industries, it helps to go to the people that work with the items the most. In some cases you can find anatomy drawings of items, glossaries, common terms used, abbreviation translations, and similar infromation online that helps me to understand the particular product I am resarching. In the AC industry I have found several lists of terms, but not about the individual components, just about things like the coils for both the condensing and the evaporative sides of the AC unit. But still not enough info for me to figure out where this item should be coded.

    Thanks again for the concern. I will just try and find another way to figure out what a header is.

    You can get a header for $50 on many street corners, late at night, in the seedy areas of town.
    Hope this helps.

    Ok that was funny. However doesn't help me much, my boyfriend get them for free anytime he wants one.

    Really I was looking for professional advice from people in HVAC to help me with my job, but I guess no one knows what I am talking about on this particular item. Thanks for the laugh though.
