  • ? about hydrocarbon gas

    i am thinking about starting to learning a bit about hydrocarbon gases to save money. can any one tell me what the difference between r290a and lpg is . can any one tell me why u cant just use pure lpg in a fridge all u would need is a pt chart for it. does lpg have more moister in it
    because from what i can work out it seems to work fine we tried it in a domestic fridge and ran fine for 4 years

      R290 is a CLEAN refrigerant

      lpg ect is dirty, moisture and non condensables and foreign bodies

      also regrigerant grade hydrocarbons are stenchless/no smell

      as the stenching agent is absorbed by drier cores

      would say you got lucky with your domestic

    Here's a worst case since you didn't provide any more than "aircon stood unused for a unknown period of time":

    I think also important that unit is sized correctly so it runs in low to mid range, most of the time.

    Re: Inverter AC efficiency at different speeds

    I would assume that it is most efficient when it is at low speeds, as this state only occurs as the system approaches set point. As set point nears, the

    Inverter AC efficiency at different speeds

    I have a dumb question about the efficiency of an inverter AC, such as a ductless mini split. Basically, my question is in general at what capacity is

    Just a few immediate ideas:

    Might be worth considering the reclaim of refrigerant from the systems so annual/bi-annual visits unnecessary
