    I'm working on how to do that.

    It's a bit complicated in that there were friends/discounts involoved on the SALE side of the transaction.

    They were not involved in the install/maintenance side....

    The system was drawn down and recharged several times by the original contractor.

    Not until the new contractor replaced the coil/txv and recharged again did the problem go away.

    To be honest, I was fed up and after 7 or 8 trips, I didn't want the original contractor in my house again.

    I just cut my losses and moved on.

    75-78 deg indoors? How can people live like that.

    For me, if it ain't 70 or below, it ain't cool :)

    Well, it's kinda hard to say. With the ducts in the slab it's hard to know how they built the thing.

    We've discussed the "Box-Under-The-Coil" idea briefly. I was hoping to avoid this for the obvious ($$$) reasons.
