John Proctor commented on Eric Kjelshus's blog post Who among us tracks the accuracy of Manual J?
"Eric  It is doubtful that the fan motor is using more energy, the electrical use of PSC motors is nearly constant regardless of speed. What climate are you referring to? If it is a wet climate, then you need the latent removal and should…"

John Proctor commented on Eric Kjelshus's blog post Who among us tracks the accuracy of Manual J?
"Proctor Engineering has done many studies on Manual J vs. true load. The short answer is the sensible load is actually 2/3 of the Manual J 7 (note 7) estimated sensible load and Manual J8 calculates an even higher sensible load. The latent load…"

"You may have already see this, but if not it is worthwhile. Forwarded from Rick Chitwood.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Okn3XgwSX5Q "

John Proctor replied to Tom Barrett's discussion How Much Energy Do Building Energy Codes Really Save? Evidence from California
"Well well. I am not Michael Blasnik, but I do know that when statistical analysis results do not correspond to the physical world, then it is time to relook at the analysis. It would be crazy to say all the energy saved in California was due to…"

John Proctor replied to Miguel Orduno's discussion Target superheat formula in the group HVAC
"Yikes -- Folks help me out. I am confused. As I recall, the target superheat for a fixed metering device (orifice/non-TXV) is dependent on the return plenum wet bulb (at the plenum, not in the house because what the air conditioner sees is what is…"

"Weatherization needs more than just money. It needs to continuously improve its effectiveness."

John Proctor replied to Aaren Stewart's discussion When replacing outdoor unit, is it necessary to also replace the indoor unit?????
"Hopefully Bob was saying the refrigerant was recovered not: "all gone" into the atmosphere. If you have a R22 unit any replacements will have to be R22 equipment. If you are replacing everything you will be putting in R-410A and the…"

John Proctor replied to Aaren Stewart's discussion When replacing outdoor unit, is it necessary to also replace the indoor unit?????
"Aaren  Assuming you are talking about a new condensing unit for an AC there are a few of good answers. 1) Yes if the old indoor coil is from a low efficiency unit and was designed for the same size unit as the new outdoor unit. That is the…"

John Proctor commented on Christopher Morin's blog post Should this Duct Layout be Banned?
"We found with the ducts on the floor of the attic, with smaller ACs, with shorter runs, with the ducts buried in lots of insulation, in hot dry climates, that there is almost no penalty for having the ducts in the attic and it is a lot easier…"

John Proctor commented on Kurt Shafer's blog post What is your opinion about members promoting products here?
"Kurt: So my question is how does your device work? PSC motors generally do not reduce their power as fast as they reduce their flow. How do you decide what the optimum airflow is?"

John Proctor commented on Christopher Morin's blog post How do You Test a TXV?
"Correction 32 is the melting point, not the saturation temperature."
Jul 28, 2014
John Proctor commented on Christopher Morin's blog post How do You Test a TXV?
"Oh yes one more item. There has to be a combination of water and ice to achieve 32 degrees F. That is the saturation temperature. Ice alone can be much colder than 32 degrees F. ProctorEng.com"

John Proctor commented on Christopher Morin's blog post How do You Test a TXV?
"Thank you for the nice post. Remember that the important thing is the actual superheat that exists entering the compressor is what we really want to control. Superheat serves only one positive purpose -- protecting the compressor from…"
