The most common problems with refrigerant lines are mechanical damage, leakage and corrosion. Where piping is exposed to possible damage, the lines should be routed out of the way or be protected in some form of chase. Where refrigerant piping (or condensate drains) are routed through building walls, floors, or ceilings, if the holes drilled through framing members place the tubing too close to an interior or exterior wall surface, there is a risk that a drywall nail or screw, drainage somerset or an exterior siding nail will puncture the refrigerant lines. A building wash service in Auckland can be a great option for you if you don’t have the time to clean your own building. Cain Riches was looking for somebody to unblock a kitchen drain in Great Blakenham. Ever since the great flood of July 2010 (post and pictures here) when a city water main broke and flooded my front yard, so much crappy dirt was washed up and deposited in the yard that all the grass died and nothing but the hardiest of weeds took up permanent residence. The smaller Albeni Falls Dam regulates the level of Lake Pend Oreille to provide some flood control during the summer and increased flows during dry winters.
The Air Resources Board approved the program to control emissions for newer models from the year 2017 to 2025. Some of their goals by 2025 are to have more environmentally superior cars to be available in different models and different types of cars. Some homeowners find hydrojetting their drains once a year will keep drains flowing smoothly all year round and eliminate the need for repairs. A drain repair cost will depend on the amount of work that will need to be carried out. Refrigerant lines need to be securely installed to minimize vibration that causes noise and damages piping. An example of arc damage to copper piping is shown below. Using innovative and effective methods and techniques our talented and licensed plumbers can safely remove obstructions before they have the opportunity to cause widespread damage to the rest of the water management system. This will ensure that the pipes are fixed as quickly as possible so that no further damage is done to the property or the people inside of it. There was a copper deposit on inside of the cover where they had touched. I do believe the proximity of the pipe touching the casing allowed the arcing to happen at this point – and there should not have been a point where the two touched – I believe am correct in saying this?
Thanks for your posted response regarding the install I have where they left the copper refrigerant return pipe touching the inside of the aluminum protective cover at one place. I had a refrigerant return pipe blow a small hole (about 18 months after install). I could see copper had deposited itself on the aluminium inside the cover which looks due to possible galvanic corrosion over time – but the blow out was a pin hole which, it is surmised, was due to electrical current running down from a lightening strike. Indeed there could be a galvanic corrosion problem when aluminum is touching copper; such leaks also occur not just from a lightning strike but also from improper electrical grounding of the equipment and sometimes from vibration rubbing the two components together. Our photo at above/left shows steel nail protection plates that we installed to protect both the refrigerant piping lines (insulated in black foam) and the condensate drain line (between the two black insulated refrigerant lines).
Our photo of a pair of outside compressor units (below) shows what looks like a neat installation, but the mounting of the refrigerant piping against the building wall and absence of slack is just asking for a refrigerant leak in these systems. There was no sign of scorching on outside of cover – only the black streaks showing in picture on pipe. There is no sign anywhere on house of an electrical strike – i am no expert but might expect to see some scorching somewhere. Because the builder had not yet completed the exterior siding (just the OSB sheathing was in place), we also had to watch out for use of long siding nails that might puncture one of these lines. Further, make sure you’re aware of when and when not to use relining, to maximize the benefit you derive from it. Our refrigerant line photo (left) shows liberal use of these nail plates on the interior face of wall studs where the routing of refrigerant lines was close to the interior wall surface. Our refrigerant line photo (below left) shows worn insulation and a crimped condensate drain line.
