re: OT A/C Experts - Heat Pump vs. Conventional - bayoubrucebruce
I left out a gas furnace, if you have gas I would not switch to heat pump or electric heat. Too many people switch and are unhappy with heat if they had gas heat before. Gas heat is a dry heat and heats up fast and is very efficient. Electric heat is not as hot as gas but is warm immediately. Heat p...

re: OT A/C Experts - Heat Pump vs. Conventional - bayoubrucebruce
If by conventional, do you mean electric heat? If so a heat pump will cost a little more in equipment prices, it is more efficient to heat your house. It should use the same amount of electricity to heat you house as to cool your house or about the same. Just straight cool with electric heat...

re: Air conditioner drain issues - bayoubrucebruce
If the drain has a p-trap on the line and you sucked the water out of the trap while trying to unclog it will try to pull the water back into the unit if the coil is before the blower. If you have a tee before the trap it should be capped. ...

That's the only way we would work on them if would could take them to the shop and work on them. Unless it's a quick fix. We would just take apart and clean at the shop. We did do a lot a ptac units for hotels and that's not nearly as bad. ...

re: What kind of certification is necessary to buy freon? - bayoubrucebruce
You have my respect for working on window units. I hate trying to repair them, they always seem to be dirty and in a bad spot to work on. If it's not a capacitor or something simple I always feel people throw away money trying to fix them because of the service charge and time it takes. Unless they ...

re: What kind of certification is necessary to buy freon? - bayoubrucebruce
I may not have been too clear. I never had to worry about what I could and could not buy. I just took the test and got universal so it covers everything. I'm not sure what happens if you just have one type of certification but I would figure since all system take different refrigerants you could buy...

re: What kind of certification is necessary to buy freon? - bayoubrucebruce
I understand that, and if you do end up changing out the system don't get too caught up in seer. The lowest you can get now is 14,and I like up to 16 seer. Higher than that and I feel like it takes too long for payback, plus I have a problem with the newer systems (higher seer) since the refrigerant...

re: What kind of certification is necessary to buy freon? - bayoubrucebruce
That tank on eBay is about $120 more than a supply house. The license isn't bad to have, just if your doing it yourself be sure of what you are doing and not just adding until you think it's good. If it's an older system (10-20) or older you may want to think about changing everything. All system...

re: What kind of certification is necessary to buy freon? - bayoubrucebruce
A new tank is over $100. A return and getting another tank is a little less, but I haven't done much of that the last couple years. Do you do work around Lake Charles, because that's were a few companies I work for are based out of. ...

re: What kind of certification is necessary to buy freon? - bayoubrucebruce
I wonder what he paid in returning the reclaim tanks. At $35 a piece sounds really cheap. A regular tank could only hold maybe 4-5 systems depending on their capacity. If he did a 100 a day he was letting that shite out. (just saw fridges, he made a killing) ...

re: What kind of certification is necessary to buy freon? - bayoubrucebruce
It's been awhile since I've taken the test, I'm not sure on which parts are which, but it's not an expensive test. Just adding refrigerant to a system is prolly ok if you have had that problem before, but a good hvac tech can diagnose possible problems with pressure and temp from the system to preve...

re: What kind of certification is necessary to buy freon? - bayoubrucebruce
You can handle all you want, just not suppose to be able to buy. Taking the test just insures that you take the proper procedures with refrigerant (reclaiming and disposing) not just letting it the atmosphere. And it doesn't hurt to keep documentation on bringing used refrigerant reclaim tanks in. ...

Take the Epa test. It's $100 and does not expire. The test is several parts, depending on what parts you pass is what you can do with refrigerant. And just passing the first part won't help because if it's a residential home your system doesn't take r12...
