Quote FEE, If you had so much business you wouldnt be posting here, In
Chicago we are not ripped off by these charges, now if its for a load
calc, ok. You need to open althvac up and keep it up.
Not "ripped off"?? but your willing to rip off tradesmen who are tryingto
earn an honest living. bite me. I don't put in 14 hours work days for free,
nor is my fuel or vehicle costs and expenses free. If you want to spend a
week driving around and spending hours with potential clients, and making
available the very best that you have to offer, and they only want the
lowest bidder, then be my guest.... you will be broke in short order. I bet
you would drop everything and come runnin for free on Sunday afternoon too.
Sorry sport, it takes money to run a business, and the customer pays for
Is the answer to this riddle, perhaps that the water-holding capacity of
air increases very quickly with temperature? It does, I looked at a graph.
So there might be a rather narrow window of temperatures where it's too
cold to use the AC and too warm for the heater to dehumidify well.
There would be such a window, unless you're willing to shiver with the AC
or overheat the house for the sake of dehumidifying. But maybe it's a narrow
range of temperatures.
What do you think happens when a heat pump go into defrost when its heating
during the winter?? the short answer is that when it goes into defrost, its
actually shifting into cooling mode and half of the heat strips come on to
keep the thing from blowing snowballs inside while its defrosting outside.
Dehumidification while in heat mode with the proper controls does the same
thing. it shifts to first stage cooling mode and brings on half the strips
to dehumidify. but don't worry about it because if its set up right, you'll
never know that its even happening. it just makes your home comfortable.
There is no riddle to it. Reading a graph isn't going to answer your
No resi system will cool down below 68 degrees without adding a freeze stat
and defrost strips..... at least not without freezing the coil inside.
I am still trying to understand a couple of things here.... First is where
your located...I must have missed that part, and second, why do you wanna
turn the place into a walk in reefer, when thats not the purpose of a
A good comparison would be your car A/C & heat. Using it to demist the
windshield the outside temp is say 50 and humidity is high and the people in
the car are too. The defroster will be used and you will turn up the heat
because your nipples are popping. The outside air is run the a/c then the
heater coil warms it. You are comfy and fog is gone from the windows. The a/c
is condensing the humidity by dropping the temperature and the heater is
warming it for comfort.
