Thanks for all the comments.
Good to hear I was right about reusing the linesets, I'll just have to make sure the system can use the existing sizes. I would have the driers replaced just for...

As an occasional visitor I rarely offer comments, especially in a section like this. But I can't help but offer up my 2cents :.02: given how important the topic is.

FWIW, the link does'nt work because of capitalization is off on Catch-All. I guess you've got a Linux website supporting this docs. :)

I wonder how the voting would go if this story turned out badly:
I did the attic route some years back, but I did the PG100 style unit which sounds ideal for your situation as well. Mine has been running the attic for 7-8 years, at least, without any trouble...

I'm just another novice, but somehow your problem does not sound like the system to me. You are in Hotlanta area (same here), and in the evening have:
(input air temp) 76 --> Furnace --> 61...

Actually I'd be very suprised if the furnace/evaporator coil is anywhere near 30 years old. Isn't possible that the tech realized that it is a relatively new system and does not need a total redo?

Here's a suggestion on how to proceed.
1) Set thermostat to 70, or something less than norm, to ensure it keeps running for 10 minutes or so.
2) After 10 minutes the system should be...
I think the 15 degrees is about correct from what I've read around here.
The 66 degree vent temperature probably means that your ducts are in the attic or crawlspace and picking up excess heat.
Yes, they are GREAT! There are a few things to consider:
- Cleanup (like deme said) is not always fun
- wood prices in your area
- Get a model with a Fan, circulates the heat back into the room

I have one question for 42yrs exp, since she seems to be getting in contact with Dash or someone else. Well, really not for you (nothing personal) but for the Professionals around here in general.
It's not a popular option around here, but I had a similar situation (Atlanta area) and was able to get my temps down with attic fans. Pulled all 4 of those useless turbines out while I...
ThX, I'll try the velcro and/or wire ties.
Chrysler service manual settings for taking reading:

This is on a fixed orifice...
Any suggestions on how to best use a Type-K bead thermocouple to measure temp on a sweaty pipe?

I'd call the Better Business Bureua ASAP -- http://www.bbb.org/
Code or no code, this should not be acceptable to anyone. Usually I recommend the softer, work with'em approach, but if anyone has...
"..., many double pane window manufacturers void their warranties if the homeowner puts a window film on their product.
This is pseudo-normal for a Honeywell.
At best, I'd suggest trying TheDuke's reset suggestion, and/or change the batteries. My <limited> experience with Honeywell programmables is that they have...

So while we wait for hotinthesouth to respond, let me make sure I understand what is best to request during a service check.
1. delta T across the evap coil
2. delta T across condenser coil

Then call Hayward...
Now, I'm curious.
Did all of the business people miss the real question here? If so, what a shame. To me, this sounds like a real business opportunity, well maybe not HIS job but similar ones.
OK, followed industry recommendations over the years and fixed everything I could find:
1) Added Attic insulation
2) Attic Power Vents
3) Mastic sealed vents
4) Keep clean filters

First, understand that I'm just another homeowner so take any advice at your own risk.
The 117 is outside I hope, and your house is staying relatively cool. Otherwise call for...
I don't think it is the consumer who is the problem, but probably the reverse. Case in point:

Thanks cedermechanical, I needed a good laugh this AM. Hope I don't get on your bad side today! :)
