Question about Goodman Air Conditioners
Due to EPA regulations and the complex tools and equipment, I will suggest that you call a EPA licensed technician to do this job. The following is the basic outline of what will be required of this technician.
To install the TXV valve, all of the freon must be recovered from the system. The copper lineset at the indoor unit will then need to be cut open. Since the lines are no longer sealed and have been exposed to the air, filter dryers(s) should be brazed in. After the TXV is brazed in, the system needs to be placed into a vacuum per EPA (to verify no leaks). At that point the old refrigerant may be put back in to the system if it is still OK..
The hard start is really unrelated to the TXV operation. It is not necessary to do this job. Although it does not hurt to install one. Basically the hard start will lower the start/run amperage of the compressor. These are usually used in a "tight" compressor scenarios.
I hope this helps:)
If the person who does this is not licensed by the EPA, the penalties could be horrific. Be warned.
