    If this is the kind of stuff you are teaching your own to do Id like to work for you. Great stuff.

    Bryan, Jim, Super informative and convincing discussion for very, very infrequently installing gauges if not only once.
    Definitely on-board with using benchmark DTDs, SLTs, SH, LLTs, SC, and ESPs readings done during first-ever system assessment and new system startup which should not change during the life of the system unless one or more of the following developed:
    1. Air flow restriction
    2. Component failure
    3. Refrigerant flow restriction.
    I also reviewed Chap 40 in Refrig & Technology big book and made more sense this time.
    Having listened to both podcasts several times, I developed a Word file of benefits, “Data to record” first-time visit or new system commissioning, “data to record” for follow-up maint checkups, and other notes.
    If you’d be interested, I would like to email to you for review for accuracy and edit suggestions. Fine to share with Jim if desired.
    Appreciate yours and Jim’s humor and respect for one another. I felt “your pain” several times during Jim’s good-natured question grilling.
    That “pain” somewhat resembles pressure I feel when encounter system problems w/out apparent or clear explanations. Inclined to start grasping (“gasping”) for info and data readings when only usually need to not over-think and look at simple causes & reasons.
    Thanks for your time investment and committment to and helping others become better technicians. P.S. Thanks for the TTTools coupon.
