There was a hurricane last year in his area....very easy to get good fortune
mixed up with business savvy.
That and with his apparently always pressuring folks about the possible
unavailability of 22 gas or a drop-in by say the year 2015 or somesuch, then
appears he's maybe currently selling them things like hotcakes.
( Prolly still mostly if not all items sold are still running r-22.)
--Don't like it all then suggest start your own fucking hvac business.
I don't have the expansion valve numbers handy but what I do remember is the
combination gave me a SEER between 12-14. I haven't gotten my first
electric bill yet so time will tell. All I know is the system works great
and I didn't get bent over. Either way, the parts are relatively the same
price wise (certainly not thousands apart) so I still think $6-7k is still
too much. Keep in mind I did my own electrical....which knocked off $500.
Geese... you just can't seem to get your story straight..... if it has an
expantion valve on it, its either an RCHJ or an RCGJ, NOT an RCBA. The
RCBA-048 is 21 inches wide, the RCHJ/RCGJ-48A2 coils are 24 inches wide. I
suppose that you are still using a one-speed furnace with it?? To actually
*GET* 13 SEER with any of the Rheem "M" coils require a variable speed
blower....but you already knew that.
As I said, a RAND-048JAZ, with the *correct* coil and furnace combination,
*installed* is $6,000 - 7,000.
Well at the end of the day, I know what I've got is working just fine and
for half of what you seem to think it should have cost.
All the more reason to get more than one bid. I'm moving on to better
I love those...the: "what *I* have is working just fine" units....
Normally, they call back later and ask if the original quote to make it
rights good still.
BTW....dunno how many of you got your new price sheets this week...thanks to
copper going up, so did equipment....25% across the board.
its all politics. R22 is being artificially pushed higher to make
R410A more attractive. Supply has very little to do with it, as major
industrial players have extensive stockpiles. Increasingly, most all
manufacturers are moving to all 410A in package 3 phase.
If R22 leaks out of my system, I merely add R22 gas.
If R410A leaks out of Nooner's system, to do it right, he has to
recover the remainder in his system and then recharge. I can buy alot
of gas at his labor rates.
hey you guys hear about all the leaking 410A coils lately?
heard thru the grapevine important people are starting to take notice
of the hundreds of 1000's of R22 commercial & resi units replaced
every year but not corresponding R22 recovery.
