Bob and Tim are at a job where a technician from another company could not figure out the electrical, so he just put the panel back on the electrical compartment and left the job. It is a heat pump and the compressor wiring is all loose. They need to figure out how to wire it back and find out the problem. The homeowner said the original call to the other service company was because of ice build up on the outdoor coil. Bob and Tim talked to the homeowner and explained that because the weather was cold and damp, ice buildup was expected on any heat pump in this kind of weather, but they would check the unit and see what was going on. The heat pump compressor was not running and the home was being heated with the auxiliary heat, so the first order of business was to get the heat pump operating. They went outside and noticed the ice had melted from the outdoor unit due to an above freezing day. The compressor was not running; however, the fan was running.
Some manufacturers, he said, don’t seem to listen much to people in the field who actually install and service the equipment. ”They have their own engineers” and are more likely to listen to them. However, according to Porter, ”the guy in the field has a better idea of what is needed in the field.” Many air conditioning dealers he knew were not satisfied with the products available. Porter said he was encouraged to try his hand at inventing by other dealers, many of whom said, ”You build a better mousetrap and we will buy it.”
