I’ve consistently wanted to work in a shop that sells hardware and power tools. My favorite department at those stores is consistently the heating and cooling department, as people in my town have the utmost respect and appreciation for a home that has excellent heating and a/c, and where we live, the summers are consistently boiling hot, however the winters can be incredibly freezing cold! For that reason, we all have to have reliable a/c and gas heating systems to make it through the year… At the large store near my house, the heating and cooling department has this one employee that was an Heating and A/C corporation for more than nine years, however this guy really knows everything, and he’s my go-to dude for any questions I have with my own equipment… Just the other day, I was having issues with my home’s air conditioning system, as the air coming from the condenser outside wasn’t even slightly cool. I knew nothing was really blocking the circulation, and I had just went and refilled the refrigerant for the condenser – there was no reason for it to be acting out! When I talked to my HVAC guy at the store, he asked if I used a gauge when I “recharged” the refrigerant line. I consistently figured that the refrigerant immediately went through the HVAC system and got used, so imagine my surprise when he told me right out that I could’ve overcharged the system! When that happens, he says the compressor will completely freeze on over, and it will take running the gas furnace for hours to melt down the compressor. I wasn’t nuts about running the heat, even though he was right! Slowly, the cool air returned to my house. I learned something that day.
