Filter, change oil, charge it with freon – regular service job.
For some time now we have been working on a new Chili’s being built in Covington, LA. The GC (General Contractor) is a really cool guy, could be mistaken for Santa, who makes knives. Always fun to meet new people with great talent. Besides myself off course.
Some additional photos of a job we did in Baton Rouge. For those interested 🙂
I am not sure if these photos have ever been posted before… they are now. When we first moved into our office/warehouse on Bainbridge we had to build some partitions to divide our side from the rest. Special thanks to Dennis (the guy with the beard) and his father Paul (the old guy) for their work on the partitions.
Originating during the transition from stored natural ice to mechanical refrigeration, the term is used in many countries, particularly in North America, to describe the heat-extraction capacity of cooling equipment – whether it be refrigeration or air conditioning.
One ton of refrigerant refers to 12,000 B.T.U.s/hour (British Thermal Units per Hour) of cooling effect.
Example: A condensing unit with a cooling capacity of 60,000 B.T.U.s / hour has the capacity of 5 tons.
In, “What is HVAC and what does it mean?” we describe briefly that the cooling effect you feel from your air conditioner doesn’t come from the freon itself, but rather the effects of heat transfer.
