    I just changed the filter and it didn't make a difference. The old filter wasn't that dirty either.

    The unit works fine in cooling mode and is quiet too.

    Mark, I don't know how the unit performed last year; but your replies make a ton of sense!

    If you lived around here(Pulaski, VA) I'd call you for the service call if you wanted it.

    Thanks again!

    I prefer the temperature in the house to be between 70 and 72 in the summer depending on the humidity.

    Just curious, but would too much or too little refrigerant affect the heating or cooling enough to make that much of a major difference in the electric bill?

    There's no gaurantee that the higher bid would have used nitrogen or a micron gauge either.

    You can bet that no nitrogen purge was done while brazing as the panel that got burned by the torch was still in place at the time of brazing.

    It looks a little difficult to attach the nitrogen...
