I guess you must be on city water using an expansion tank and pressure regulator, I'm on well water and the and the cold water tank acts as the expansion tank and the pump pressure switch is set at 30 to 50 psi.

Next year I also have plans for a couple mini split heat pumps, an easy do it yourself project with the precharged systems on the market now.
