    I just had a new a/c system installed so forgive this if it's a stupid question...

    I thought the uninsulated line running to the compressor was the freon return line and the flow was *toward* the compressor. On my system, the flow arrow on the filter-dryer which is mounted on the bare line is pointing out. See picture....

    Is this the correct mounting of this part?

    Thanks,
    David

    It's correct now go back in and enjoy your new system.

    Yes the direction arrow is correct but I see several other issues that could have been done better. Take a wide angle pic so we can critque the whole job.

    Please tell me that is not the 220V line strapped to the suction line.

    David,

    don't you have something better to do other than stare at directional arrows on a filter/dryer... at night, no less?! If you didn't trust the co. that installed your new system, then why'd you buy from them?
    WHY?

    I'd guess that's about a 12/2 UF wire strapped to that suction line? Wish they'd quit changing the electrical code!

    Ok, it's the low voltage line.

    Maybe they're using the 12/2 UF for the control voltage wire?
    WHY?

    Biggest dang low voltage wire I ever seen Why isn't the f/d in at the metering device?

    Of course if you wanna have fun with an installer, peel off the label and reverse it

    Looks like 1/2" liquid tite to me. Will wait for the bigger picture.

    I never put the filter drier at the metering device inside the house. Easier to change the drier when needed. Noone here in Shreveport puts them in the house.

    This kind of snipe is such a waste of time. Don't you have anything better to do than post useless replies to a HVAC forum? Are you perhaps a contractor who gets annoyed when customers look too closely at your work?

    I think most people are curious about something they just purchased..especially if it just ate a big hole in their savings account. Also, my never-wrong contractor crystal ball is on the fritz...can I borrow yours?

    Thanks to those who took the time to actually answer the question.

    David
