  1. Refrigerative Supply limited, corner of erin and sargent. In our province getting a high SEER rating doesn't matter all too much because of the overall little use that we have for it in a 12 month period (specifically for residential use). Not a board member no, Just trying to help look out for the environment. Doesn't matter what refrigerant you run or in what system, end of the day its all bad - Granted, there are much worse things out there. Personally we should have never "advanced" into using any refrigerants besides R744, R717 or R600. (C02, Ammonia, isobutane) with R744 and R717 being our "Natural Refrigerants" with the lowest possible GWP. Sadly, people are afraid of 2 of those and only recently in north america have we implemented R600 into household use (Chest freezers, some water cooler, ect.) even though its been used for Europe for years.
  2. Sounds like its time for a replacment. Did you bypass the HPCO or the ambient sensor? RSL usually has a bunch of "scratch and dent" units that are a fair price if looks dont matter too much. As for brand wise, goodman gets a bad rap but as long as the install is done correctly and as long as the unit is sized correctly you shouldn't have any problems. That and they are usually the cheapest. depending on sizes, efficiency, ect. I don't think you can buy them OTC anymore, so whoever is installing it would probably have to purchase it. Just remember to safely recover the 22 and drain and recycle the compressor oil before scrapping the unit.
  3. Do you have a specific brand in mind? Call Colin's Mechanical (204-231-0121) tomorrow and speak with Patrick F, Ken or Bill to get a quote on a new unit or to set up a service call. It would either be myself, or Glen doing the install/call. When you call have the model/serial of the condensing unit ready, SQ/ft of the house helps to make sure it was sized correctly as well.
  4. Reviving an old thread.. thanks @Ianfromduff for the download link, takes a bit to get a hang of not a real steering wheel! Lots of fun either way
  5. From a parts perspective i'd stay far away from any XI BMW - 3 or 5 series, especially with spirited driving. (8+ years in auto parts and I've seen people cry over repairs). Subaru's are an option, but only if you keep up with ALL of the maintenance. 80,000+ kms. 5 trips to Banff, 2 trips to Vancouver and surrounding area + the full length of #1, #3, and #5 through BC/alberta with heaps of fun in between. (97 WRX)
