Home inspectors have enough crap to deal with. We do not need more superficial nonsense injected into this business.
Obviously if you can't take the time, your input isn't worth supporting.
There's a lot of new people in here that listen to what people say. I change my point of view all the time, based on what the majority of the home inspectors have found to be factual in the real world. Freezing up of the evaporator coil? Get a life! It might freeze, but not because it is a trap on the condensate line! You come in here with 30 years of experience! With this baloney?
There is not a lot of traffic on the HVAC bulletin board. That's probably a good thing. Some people, possibly like yourself come in here feeling that they know something about HVAC, without a clue. Any type of discussion is welcome on these bulletin boards, but you may as well expect a conflict in opinion when you throw stuff like this out.
To start with, working on HVAC equipment requires EPA certification. Home inspectors do not have the certification in most cases. Anything beyond a minimal run it and see if it works inspection is about all that anyone can expect. There is a lot of information that can be provided and there's a lot of testing that can be done without crossing the EPA guidelines. We don't have a lot of room for nonsense. You're right up there with the 20? temperature differential between return supply air dry bulb temperatures. This is a prime example of BS that's passed down from generation to generation without any substantial factual support of scientific basis.
I see that you have a grand total of 15 posts to your name.. I normally do not judge anyone for their longevity in nachi, however your experience shows. There are people on this BB that probably have more education and experience than I do in the HVAC business, however, there is no room for BS here unless you want to get called out.
