Actually you go by SEER rating if it is a Heat pump or efficency
rating if it is only a central moreso than brand. A SEER or 14 or more
is kinda state of the art for a heat pump and a rating of 12 or more
on a central is good too. You want a very large condesor for size of
units cooling capacity because the bigger the condensor, the more it
cools R22 and the less energy it uses for cooling delivered. Horse
shoe or circular shaped condensors tend to be the best here.
12 or better? The feds require all units manufactured after January 1st,
2006 to be 13 SEER or better. SEER relates to AC units, heat pumps go by the
EER , not SEER. 15 seconds on Google and you would have had correct
As for which one is best? The one installed correctly, period! Brand means
We install Ruud/Rheem units where I work and we rarely have any problem with
them. The wholesaler we buy them from asked why we have such good luck, when
the other Ruud dealer in town is always changing out compressors. Only
reason we could come with is we evacuate the line sets on our installs down
to 400-500 microns, always! If you don't, you leave in non-condensables, and
moisture that ruins to oil, and fries the compressor.
Cheap junk installed properly will run longer than a Trane or Carrier, or
even Ruud/Rheem that got installed improperly by some hack.
Greg, take a deep breath and relax. This is yet just another perfect
example as to why no one listens to a damn thing Snoball says. There
are enough HVAC experts in here that will see this thread and reply,
inturn making him look like the retard that he is.
As to your comments, I agree though I am not one of those said
experts, that as long as it is installed properly, and properly sized
for your house, you should have little to no problems with it,
regardless of who makes it.
My buddy, who has his own AC/Heating company, has told me that many of
the different brands have the same components inside. He's also said
the same thing I've already heard here - that the installation is more
important than the make of the unit.
Really, I am a troll? HA!!
If I am a troll, WTF does that make you?
I don't know what a SEER is? Please oh mister expert of all things
before never, tell me where you came up with that brilliant decuction
when I never once mentioned it?
I admitted about three posts ago that I am not a HVAC expert, but I
know many in here and out of here that are. See unlike you, I do not
constantly post about things I know nothing about, HVAC systems would
be a GREAT example of such.
Sure you do:
You even work with things you know nothing about:
"Really! You really don't know shit than do you cock breath? News flash
cock breath, when you recover from a HDD crash or failure and you are
starting from fresh some thing will need to be flashed for the system to
work properly again. But fuck, I'm only an IT Tech what the hell do I
Once again, you just can't let shit go can you cock breath? What a
pitiful man you are. Shame you have to continue to live life in the
But lets see here, I will play your little game this one time,
Motor Oil, I was not wrong about it, you could not and did not prove
me wrong either. It was a simple matter of the fact that you did not
argee with what I said, that does not mean I am wrong, nor does it
mean you were right. It means only that you did not agree.
Jumper cables? Hmm, show me where we had a discussion about them and
where I was wrong, please. There was one comment made about that
subject. Again, it does not and did not make me wrong. You just wish
to believe that.
Alternators. Again, I was not wrong about it, you could not and did
not prove me wrong either. It was a simple matter of the fact that you
did not argee with what I said, that does not mean I am wrong, nor
does it mean you were right. It means only that you did not agree.
Headlight bulbs? Really, where exactly was I wrong here? I very
clearly remeber that the discussion was that I had better success with
a specific bulb than another person did. Again, a matter of
disagreement, not a matter of me being wrong. But again, this is what
you choose to see and believe. I never disputed that other posters
claims, I never stated he was wrong.
So, with all of this, one again, I will ask the oh so simple
question. Other than in your mind because you have a desire to make
everything that I post be wrong, how come in cases such as above, and
in many other posts that I know for fact you read, you have not proven
wow, sheryl is back? i go away for a couple ofweeks and it returns.
i would think larry, that you should actually be proud of yourself.
you have obviously done something to really hurt its fragile ego, or
that of its boyfriend snotroll. in other words, you must have done
something right to be able to gather so much time and attention from

actually all i said was that i went away on vacation and while i was
gone away, it looked to me like sheryl had returned to the ng to post
i wasn't "eluding" anything, nor for that matter was i alluding to
instead chris, i was just saying.
