    Does your Caps lock Key have A Problem?

    I can't make any sense of your writing. Even less sense of the content.

    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.
    Questions should end with a question mark "?" Statements end with a period "."

    in a Certain Area _ He soon Knows there were or Currently are Issues in Area Electrical Issues - Unless it was a Direct Hit from Lighting . Customer's side of the Transformer . If it's the Other side of the Transformer or Main Line down the Rd. several Homes will Generally have Issues .

    Good Experience A/C Guy will Know the Difference ..

    When Electrical Company's do a Lousy switch Over from Hydro to Other - It can Effect Miles or half a County of Customers _ the Phones start Ringing
    Off the Wall .. !

    There can be 4 different type of Electrical Surges .
    Then there is Peak Demand in Hot Weather - causing Brown Outs .. ( Electrical Co isn't Ready for Demand )

    All 5 Cases above Could be Electrical Company's Insurance Co - Not Yours ! Doing the Pay Out !
    All 5 Cases above Cause Wiring to Loosen ..

    WIRES _ DON'T LOOSEN _ ALL ON _THERE OWN - PERIOD !


    Of course not. The lug backs.

    All of the above cases will Cause Electrical Wiring to Loosen Up Over a Period of Time !

    Most don't see any Loose Wiring Connections 6-8 yrs. of repeated Hits & Issues BUT Insurance Company's will try to Wiggle Out from this .
    In order for the Home Owner to Protect Him & Her Self - Connections - Should be Checked every Yr. in Writing so They are Covered . .
    If they need to File a Claim with the Electrical Co . __ They have Proof !

    Their Meter & Bow and A/C Switch were all Good to Go !

    Wow, we had a brownout here yesterday with the AC running, and today my AC is still maintaining 68 degrees. It's R22. Maybe it has an internal Kinuten Valve that protects it from these surges...

    I always find it interesting to discover what people who really don't know about electricity or power grids have to say about it, and how an insurance claim would help put an HVAC company out of business.

    I sure hope that this guy is not from around here because this seems like total nonsense to me.

    Okay. I read some more, and he used the term, "Hydro." That's a Canadian term for power companies, thanks to Niagara Falls Generating Station.

    Now, maybe there's a lot of brown outs in Canada. My dad never mentioned having that problem in British Columbia, but then again he had to carry a bucket down to the stream to get water to make breakfast in Nelson.

    If there is a pattern of burned wiring, my sense is that there is a very much larger problem afoot then simply a voltage loss, which is typically referred to as a brown out.

    Terminals in equipment are generally rated for 75C, and the insulation is often rated for 90C. In order for a wire to burn off from a terminal, the quality of the connection must be low enough to create a resistance, which acts like a heater.

    Sorry I got Off Track , started talking about Claim Coverage & Self Protection

    If they need to File a Claim with the Electrical Co . __ They have Proof - that Equipment and Connections were all OK . .

    Their Meter & BOX and A/C Disconnect Switch were all Good to Go ( In Writing like a Bill )

    There seems to a be a lot of Power coming from Nuclear power , TN The Hydro Power was put installed in the 40's and 50's so a lot of it is Pretty Old.

    They Do Switch Overs Everyday .

    They Don't always get it Correct .

    There also seems to be Issues as I'm Told from several Near-By's and Seniors in the Area ..
    At Least 3 I Know of Personally - were all - Loose Wires .

    WIRES DON'T LOOSEN ALL ON THERE OWN ..

    So you seem to have a Vendetta against the power company. What's your point.

    Yes, but expansion / contraction doesn't happen on it's own. The Only Logical Explanation is the Hydro. I have Suspected This For Years. Thanks Quality for Having the Courage to speak the Truth!

    Lugs heat up then lugs coil down which can loosen the lug screw.

    Ummmm...yes they do. Simple frequent temperature changes will do it. So will a chronic moist environment.
