I want to install a ductless mini-split system in my garage/workshop, so
I called one of the local HVAC companies to get a quote. I started to
tell the girl who answered the phone what I wanted, and she said, "Oh,
we don't install ductless mini-split systems." I asked her why, and she
said she didn't know.
What I really need is someone to do the charging for me - I can do the
physical installation. So how do I find somebody who's got the EPA
I agree, so should be able to find a HVAC company to install the system.
A couple of years ago I replaced one and I messed up by not reading the
On that system you had to insulate the liquid line because they used it as a
metering device so the liquid line would sweat and it was dripping water
inside the space. :-(
No son, I didn't change the subject. I pointed out that your reply
exhibited symptoms that conclusively demonstrate that your head is firmly
up your ass. Pull it out, wipe the shit out of your eyes and look around a
bit. Perhaps you'll realize that your opinions and statements aren't that
wonderful. Then again, perhaps your aren't equiped to understand that.
Son, you aren't even close to being qualified to assess my competency. You
didn't even know why a liquid line sweating would be impossible and had to
ask. I've already told you once but here it is again: it isn't liquid if
it's sweating. It's already been expanded, e.g. it's gas.
No run on back to alt.hvac where your head-n-ass syndrome is accepted
Ok, I've waited long enough.
CLARK: You obviously [are NOT a GENIUS}. If you were, you would have
listened closely to kjpro and learned.
Mini - splits are not that much different than most refrigeration units
except that the moved the metering device from the indoor section to the
outdoor section. Both lines are basically an extended evaporator and need
to be insulated and insulated seperately. If you were a genius [you stated
it as a fact] you would have know this. But it is YOU who has his head
firmly planted where the sun don't shine!
The original poster is too cheap to have an HVAC person come, install and
charge the system per Mfg.'s instruction. Most competent HVAC companies
can't survive on labor charges alone, and need to sell products and
services. [We have overhead costs that can not be supported by just labor
income.] Besides, if the mini-split failes, the O.P. is going to expect the
HVAC person to come out, diagnose the problem for free when there wasn't any
profit left for a warranty.
So CLARK, go find some hairy hole and crawl back from where you came.
Yes, you did. What do you hope to gain by telling lies?
Son you still don't get it do you? If it is sweating it is not a liquid
line. Why do you insist on calling it one?
Now pull your head out of your anal orfice and admit that your terminology
doesn't describe the physical system.
Yes you did when you ask me why it was "different" for a liquid line to
sweat. You can try to deny your lie all you want but it is there for all to
Son, you are the one who doesn't even pay attention to what you type. On
top of that you make vain attempts to "prove" your knowledge when it isn't
even challenged. Now go back and read everything that has been written.
You'll see that all I said was a liquid line couldn't sweat and that is
true. You're the one trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill.
Oh my, PAY ATTENTION this time, Boy.
I stated, "Yep, they are a little different. :-)"
Then you posted, "The liquid line sweating would be more than a little
Then I stated, "Why?
(All they did was move the metering device)"
= = = = =
Now here's where it gets a little difficult for mentally challenged people,
so pay extra attention to the details.
I said they (mini-splits) were a little different (then regular residential
You come back and say the liquid line sweating is more than a little
Do you see it was YOU that stated it was still a LL and that it was
Do you see where I then posted that they moved the metering device?
Can you understand that is a little different?
Do you see anywhere, where I called it a LL?
Most competent people are not having issues understanding this minor detail.
Not true, you acted like a know-it-all that was out to prove me wrong.
But in the process, you found out that I know my shit and that you were
indeed in deep shit.
Now you want to disclaim the fact that YOU were the one with your head up
Sorry Boy, that shit just doesn't cut the mustard.
