no it was running for over a week with my old thermostat and got down to as low as I wanted it.
It just shut off but don't know why I could not get it to go below 75
Are you still there?
I don't believe I have a thermometer handy but I can try to see about doing this tomorrow.
I can call them tomorrow although I don't know if I can get them. I do have his cell number so I can try that but I am concerned about turning it back to 72 and having it run continuously.
Today he had to put in something related to the furnace since it was a full HVAC system and he installed some dampers to try to get the air flow more even and it seemed to help. I just realized late this evening the thing had not shut off since he left around 11 this morning.
It felt like it was getting colder but thermostat still reading 75
I was looking for a thermometer but the only one I have is the old fashioned kind to take temps with and I don't think it goes that low.
The unit just came on again. Seems to regulate at 75 but not at 72
Come to think of it, it has not said anything other than 75 as the temp all day
When you say it should be 20 degrees colder than return air, does that mean 20 degrees colder than the thermostat is set at?
The thermostat is a Braeburn Premier series model 3000
Okay, I can check this tomorrow when I get access to a thermometer. Do you have any info on the thermostat?
Yes I have it right here. Fun reading!
What did you want me to try?
Yes and while he was here, he turned on the heat and made sure it worked and then turned on the AC and checked it with the thermostat. Then we left it on 72 because he knows I like it fairly cold
It was cooling fine with the old thermostat, in fact it was too much air in some rooms thus the reason for the dampers. What I did notice later tonight was that some of the vents we regulated with the dampers seem to be going stronger than we had them with the dampers. It is too much air and was less when he left but now it seems like it is back to the way it was before the dampers. Can the dampers slip or move or get out of place?
He also did something with the venting of the unit out the roof but I think that is for the furnace.
Do you mean the line that would go to the compressor outside? I can check but would likely melt pretty quickly. If this is where you mean I can check for ice.
No evidence of ice outside on the line--just some grasshoppers
Okay. Good night.
