1. TBP - thermal balance point is the temperature at which the amount of heating provided by the heat pump equals the amount of heat lost from the house.
EBP - economical balance point is the lowest temperature at which the operation of the heat pump is most cost effective.


3. Slope towards the evaporator.

4. Suction pressure increases to load, and decreases to unload.

5. Find leak and repair it.

6. No.  Refrigerant must be recovered from equipment before its disposal. This refrigerant can be reclaimed by a third party for future use or recycled for use in the original owner's other equipment, as part of their phaseout strategy.
