One of the most telling bits of info is the "reasons for oversizing".
The most common reason is because the customer requested it. That
suggests to me that in the real world the Manual J and other "correct"
ways of sizing are too often giving undersized results and the
customers have learned from past experience that they need a bigger
unit then the "experts" tell them they need. Almost every place I've
lived in has had undersized cooling.
This is only because the customer is trying to get the system to do things
that its not designed for
Probably not.....a correctly sized system is designed to *MAINTAIN* the
average comfort levels at the design conditions....not bring the temp in a
100 degree home down to 70 degrees in 30 minutes. Its not gonna happen.
I have had CJT in my killfile for a long time.....He doesn't *want" to
understand about manufacture design limitations, or proper sizing.
He doesn't care about getting it done right, All he cares about is how cheap
can he get it done.
No, your wrong. What we have disdain for is internet assholes who
have a bone to pick for whatever reason with hvac guys.
I realize that there are some real clueless dick heads posing as pros.
But I think for the most part the regs here do the best they can most
of the time and know what is right and what is wrong. Youre picking
the wrong bone.
There is one exception and that is the mormon con man Stormy Mormie.
Stormy and his kind are the ones that give rise to the internet hvac
horror stories you hear. Obviously you have had a negative experience
involving one of these hacks. Consider re-channeling your energy
And BTW my customers dont disdain me. They request me. Maybe its
part of that backwards havc logic. They request me so they can hate
You wouldnt know a good hvac guy or job if it crawled up you ass like
a tape worm and bit your small intestine off.
Have fun with your half price hack job your getting from a friend of a
friend of a friend. Make sure you pay him in beer first.
That's rich coming from a guy named Bubba. I'm not a racist, nor a
profiler, nor a person who judges others quickly.
But if you ever showed up for a bid with a shirt that said "BUBBA" on it,
I'd politely waste about two hours of your life and laugh my ass off as you
You and CJT make a good couple. Two totally clueless assholes with
absolutely no originality to speak of what so ever. Id plonk both of
you idiots but then it wouldnt even leave the slimmest chance that
either of you has a glimmer of hope.
Lemme go get the leash........
Sorry sport, your talking to engineering majors, and master tradsmen, not
liberal arts majors. Sucks to be a liberal arts major when an advanced
degree only means that you don't have to wear the paper hat anymore when you
ask "Do you want fries with that??"
Now... please quit cross posting your drivel
BTW... welcome to my killfile
There's nothing about having an engineering degree that forces you to
misuse the English language. In fact, many of the best engineers are
also excellent writers. People who ignore details of language probably
also ignore details of calculation.
