New HomeOwner with Central A/C - Is this condition normal?
New to central A/C. Man it’s nice!
I have two zones, up and down.
Here is the situation. I noticed the upstairs was a bit warm air at the registers and the air not as cool. I understand it’s the 2nd floor but it was quite a bit warmer.
Here is what I found after checking around:
Outside temp about 90 degrees
I went out to check the condensers. They were both running.
Downstairs one, the cold line had sweat on it like it was cold, I touched it and it was nice and cold.
Upstairs Unit, was ‘cool-ish’, no sweat
Went inside and got my IR temp gun and measured temps coming in through the wall in the basement. (pulled the insulation on the pipe back a bit)
Downstairs unit, temp of pipe was 49 degrees
Upstairs unit, temp of pipe was 72 degrees
Here are my questions, which I would appreciate some help with.
I assume both temps at the outlets of the condenser unit should be the same temp? eg. 49 degrees?
What would cause this problem? I have the service person coming tomorrow and want to be able to understand what he is talking about.
Any other tips for getting lots of mileage out of the system?
Thanks in advance for your help!
