Has anyone had any experience with the Frigidaire, Tappan, Maytag
Westinghouse (Nordyne) Seer 23 iQ Drive Compressor and furnace. The
compressor can ramp down to 900 rpm with an inverter. I believe that the
condensor fan also is variable along with the furnace fan. Is it worth
the cost differential over say a 16 Seer or 19 Seer 2 speed scroll as
far as long term payback. Inverter technology is hardly new being around
for many years. One advantage mentioned is that it is not so large
compared to some units with Seer in the 20's, also mentioned is extreme
This is a very attractive but poorly described design. As an electrical
engineer watching the video, I was surprised to find that the inverter PC
board seemed to have small, low power dissipation components. Since they
make a variable frequency inverter and use the inverter output frequency to
control the compressor speed, it would seem that they would be forced to
chop / switch the output to the compressor with large triacs or some other
electronic switch with tens of amps being switched / chopped to the
compressor. The fact that they don't appear to have big switching devices
surprises me, since this would be the classical way to design and build the
AC inverter. If they were driving a variable speed DC compressor rather than
using an AC to AC inverter, I would expect similarly large components as
If buying this unit, I would be especially interested in seeing the details
of the warranty, both parts and labor, particularly on the compressor and
electronics. Carrier's InfinityS at 21 SEER is pretty damn close in SEER,
has a traditional 2 stage scroll compressor, and may be cheaper, so I
certainly would consider the Infinity as another very worthy alternative,
possibly with less risk and lower cost.
Wonder if any of the group here has some practical and direct experience
with either approach / system?
If your selling heat pumps at all and not using hspf calcs then you still
are leaving your customers in the dark.
ADD backup heating and it gets even more complex if you wanna come out
squeeky clean then IIRC KJ has a spreadheet...prolly come nighttime he
sleeps better than you do too....
We dont have 9 months of winter here either but still maybe your getting
Hspf anyone ?
Not sure exactly why you would wanna persue this particular angle of
reasoning at this late an hour but guessing that it must be at least after
midnight there at this point in time and since your still up I guess its NN
dude sleep on it.is all
Nice fish there then we used to fish for bass in the swamp bordering the
north pasture when I was a kid they never got over a few lbs though.
Definately had to fillet cause if you left any skin on em then the whole
goddamned pan tasted like mud.
And FWIW Beaver is actually fairly good eating even considered a delicacy by
many but the game laws have become quite the quagmire in recent years too
many kids, unintended animals, have gotten caught up in the traps...Fur
value notwithstanding, the meat is excellent smoked or roasted on an open
spit, though IMO oven baked they are a bit greasy.
This thread is just one simple example of what a bunch of useless trash this
group offers. A gentleman named Al posts a very legitimate question 5 days
ago asking whether anybody can offer him some help regarding high SEER iQ
Drive equipment, and the ONLY replies this group has to offer in the dozen
or more messages talk about spreadsheets, fishing, and eating beaver. You
are a pathetic group of losers acting like a bunch of teenage jerks. Shame
Oh my..Such a tither over nothing.. You, Farty and In the barrel are
only here because your own groups have disenfranchised you. When I was
supervising Engineer at a Rockwell research facility, it was my nasty
duty to have to fire Psychologically unfit personal, such as you. If you
can't take the heat move on.. Until then expect the folks here to
continue to entertain themselves poking you with a sharp stick.
I really don't remember anyone inviting you into our elite group anyway.
Don't you think it is rather rude of you to impose your nose into our
NG without even the smalles of invitations?
No one has a hook in your ass. Why you still here? To entertain? That's
it, to entertain.
Smartie, you damn funny, you know that. And BTW; since you couldn't
figure out the beaver I am talking about, I'm guessing you don't like
beavers. You prefer white owls. :)
I don't know Zyp about White Owls, unless we are talking cigars, in which
case my brand has always been Perdomo Estate Seleccion . As far as beaver
goes, I'm a huge beaver fan. And since we are talking about huge beavers,
how's your wife doing.....?
