Definetly need to be wearing saftey glasses when checking the Delta T. Wouldnt want to get oxygen into your eyes.

Kevin Jones says:

great info!

Darth Vaider says:

do you have a video where we can apply same pressure/temperature method but for a refrigerator? I mean there's no air duct, so where do we put our probes? I'm using wireless Testo probes btw.

Bob D says:

Tampa Florida check in thanks for the content

elmer ramirez says:

Imagine being on 140 degree roof waiting for that right superheat lol I know a lot of techs use psi for reference also

Darrell Lucero says:

Hello thanks for sharing this very informative video sir. By the way is there a PDF file for the AC Service tech manual which we can download for our reference?
Thanks

TheTommyboy63 says:

Why utilize a Manifold at all? The temperatures of the Suction/Liquid lines, ambient air, indoor air temps, against a manufacturers Charging Chart will give you an accurate charge indication of charge without losing any refrigerant.

Manuel Ramirez says:

Hello,

Thanks for the video,

What would happen if you add refrigerant as vapor? and what is the proper repair for such if needed it?

Roy Ogden says:

If a unit says 17.6 lbs refrigerant and you put 17.6 lbs in it, isn't that it?

Randy Cates says:

This video make me very stupid!

Agree with Joe Flores, this is not real world service.

clementino francisco says:

Way too fast you talk like if you are taking a test and no teaching

Brian L says:

For sure one of the best videos I have watched pertaining to filling with the why's and how's. This video has certainly left enough of an impression on me in regards to filling systems. I will admit that I have filled a little too fast in the past based on how low and slow you let the gas in.
Thank you for your professionalism and explanation. I look forward to viewing more of your videos in the future.

Willie Lee says:

That whip and lineset is tight

Fast Eddy 270 says:

Awesome video !!! Thanks

Great video

Stan Cousins says:

why do some refrigerant tanks have a blue and red valve

Khoa Le says:

I have the blue gauge and the quick coupler already but need the t-connector. On your video at minutes 7:54, what is the part# for the t-connector and where to buy it? Thanks
