    Yes. Pretty consistently windy year round.

    High winds can require a higher termination temp.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Ya. That makes sense. And his unit does sit between his house and an out-building that will funnel the prevailing winds and speed them up. That’s what I love about this trade, all the little details to look out for.

    And, been, I assume you are referencing wind chill.

    Basically. Or you can think of it as forced convection.

    In a normal defrost with little to no wind. The coil warms up fairly evenly, and fairly fast. With the wind blowing, it takes longer to warm up, and doesn't warm up evenly, so not all of the coil thaws.
