Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you today.
If your old unit was R-22 (refrigerant 22) then there is a great pressure difference between the two. Normal discharge pressure for R-22 is around 230 lb.PSI while the newer refrigerant R-410 (which is your new system) runs about 350 lb. PSI
This higher pressure will make more noise. I don't think a trap will help this at all.
However, I would call the installer back out to double check the charge in the unit, that could make a difference.
Also sometimes the refrigerant pipes going into the wall can get moved around a little and make more noise. I would have them check this also.
If it was cool outside when they did the startup, they may need to add a little refrigerant.
They checked everything Monday. I'll ask about movement but what I hear is a hissing sound.
Does this answer your question? I know I would rather leave the unit a little low on charge in cooler weather so as not to damage the system. I usually tell the customer I will return once it warms up outside for fine tuning the refrigerant charge in the system.
Thank you ............ Ron
