I have a heat pump that is 16 years old and my AC is not cooling. I had a
tech come out and say the coil in my furnance is leaking and it will cost at
$598. 00 to replace the coil. The coil can be replaced with a brand new one
and not used? Is this true? I was also told the life of the system is about
15 years so I should get a new system. What will a new system run for? I
really do not trust BGEHOME.
I have a three bedroom townhouse that was built in 1990. Thanks for your
$598 for a coil? Maybe i can get them to do mine for that. I get between
900 and 1400 depending on size.
Life of an AC system is 15 years. It's served well and is ready for
retirement. Get a new system.
J, I tend to march to the beat of my own drum, and wouldnt make a very
good lemming at all.
I consistantly use the product, and it works for me, so I dont give a
fucking rats ass to the negative views expressed by other less
Take careful notice that the people shouting this product down HAVE
NOT used it themselves, and as such have no FIRST HAND knowledge of
The PDF file someone posted in the thread is dated June 2003. Then
click on the testimonial links on cliplights page. Sept 2003, Ford
Motor Company is PRAISING cliplight's product. Which one should you
My two cents says first hand experience takes precedence over hearsay.

Just for the record (since I tend to bitch rather loud)
I bought a can. Why? Dunno. Wanted to read it for myself. Not real
thrilled with the prep of it. Gotta evacuate the hose first, then let
it fill up with r-22 from your system. Let it sit for a few mins, then
charge it into the system. If it doesnt all go into the system, refill
the can again with the system charge, let it sit a few and charge it
back in again???. Sounds a bit goofy but thats the condensed
instructions right from the sheet.
Then if you get into the R410a, it makes mention of recovering the
complete system charge and starting over due to the high pressures or
whatever. It pretty much made me think not to mess with it on a 410a
Ive offered it to 2 ppl so far. No takers. One wants a new coil, the
other is waiting to hear since it is holding up a real estate deal.
Im not saying good or bad about it yet. Its just another avenue that
may prove very nice or very messy.
Bubba, think long and hard about the evacuation of the hose
instructions......then picture this.....
partially screw the hose onto the can, then screw the hose onto your
schrader. Once fully engaged on the shrader, there will be a de
minimis amount of refrigerant leak where the hose screws onto the can.
Once you think all the air has been displaced in the hose, finish
screwing the hose onto the can.
Once you allow refrigerant vapor to mix with the cans contents, the
can gets really hot. Cool the can to ambient before proceeding.
Shake the can & hold upside down while filling contents into
system....once empty you can disconnect the hose from the schrader
port and then finish charging with refrigerant.
