    Sorry, I didn't mean a "package", but rather a package of a split heat pump with a pre-made lineset. It looks like the lineset was cut off after the QC's and then brazed back together again. Vapor...

    I agree, 40F is to warm for beer.

    40F was approximate, its probably more like 38F (4F superheat).

    Either way, how can the chart say it should be 76F.

    Who believe's this chart and why?

    thanks for the data. Compressor tag (copeland) say L.R.A 75.8, but I like your numbers better. You might be on to something. I'll bet they installed the lineset backwards and then realized that...

    Good question. Seems the owner had the system checked by another contractor and they said the system was leaking but overcharged - which made no sense to me. The owner asked me to check it out. I...

    Cant measure head psi at condensor - they never installed a service port on the high side. They did install one at the evaporator and head psi there is around 195psi in cooling.
