Does Setpoint Lead to Freezing?
Does setting a thermostat too low cause an air conditioning system set in cool mode to freeze? The answer is no, at least not directly. However, low evaporator load (low return temperature or low airflow) and low outdoor ambient temperature can lead to evaporator coil freezing. Low indoor setpoint can lead to low return air […]Read more
Pressure / Enthalpy Diagram Example
This article was written by my buddy and Canadian Supertech Tim Tanguay. Thanks, Tim! This P/E chart shows R410a at 100°F saturated condensing temp, 10°F SC, 40°F saturated suction temp, 20°F SH at the compressor. The green highlighted thumb shape is the saturation zone. Everything that occurs in the saturation zone is a latent (change […]Read more
Modulation motors are not often seen in residential equipment, but we see them a lot in commercial and industrial applications on many different types of equipment. I see them primarily on larger burners to control the fuel firing rate, but they also control water flow through heating coils, the water level on cooling towers, and […]Read more
