How many feet of lineset did you have?
Thank you, ***** ***** is the superheat or sub cool reading at this point?
And what is delta t?
ok, what is the temperature of the air blowing out the first register...and the temp of the air at the return grill..while ac is running..
How much would you say you put in on top of charge?
I believe you may be actually overcharged.
I erealize you probably do not have the equipment...but if you did, we would want to remove that pound and let run 30 minutes and then check those same temps.
We want around 15 degree diff between the in and out...
Was everything precharged or just condenser?
Did the lines sweat or screw together to the indoor and outdoor unit?
hissing as it runs through the pipe or hissing as in a leak?
is the small line hot/warm? and larger pipe cool?
ok you have either overcharged...... or the metering device (piston, txv etc) is stuck or not installed right.
Did the air handler come with matching piston for outdoor unit (or txv)
correct..you would close high side at condenser and pump everything back in. Then close the low side valve.
Inspect piston...right direction, size etc...reinstall, vacuum, release charge..
keep this on your end until ready
