comment What size conductor do I need to bond water and gas piping?
I vote to reopen this question. In my opinion, it is not a duplicate of the other question.

The expansion takes place just before the evaporator coils. The suction line is insulated to avoid condensation problems, and to prevent it from picking up too much heat.

I know it seems counter intuitive, but trust me, the A/C works by pumping hot high pressure liquid refrigerant into your house, and taking cool low pressure gaseous refrigerant out.

(CONTINUED) As the refrigerant gains energy (heat), if flashes (boils) into a low temperature low pressure gas. The gas then flows back to the compressor, where it can start the refrigeration cycle again.

Yes. The compressor (outside) compresses the refrigerant into a hot high pressure gas, which condenses in the condenser (outside) into a hot high pressure liquid. The liquid then travels inside via the liquid (smaller) pipe, to the expansion device (inside). When the refrigerant passes through the metering device (expansion device), it changes from a hot high pressure liquid, to a cold low pressure liquid. The heat from your home is blown across the coils of the evaporator (inside), where the heat can be absorbed by the refrigerant. (CONTINUED).

You are taking about a central A/C system, right?

comment Can a 15 amp and 20 amp share a ground?
To be clear, the "15-amp circuit" enters the box via two wires inside a "flexible metal tube", and leaves along 14/2 w/ ground nonmetallic sheathed cable. The "20-amp circuit" enters, and leaves using 12/2 w/ ground nonmetallic sheathed cable. Is that correct?
