Yes, I observed the whole installation process (literally over their shoulder most of the time). There are times that they tried to hide something from me and also I went away during the brazing because it smells bad. But certainly I know what major steps they skipped. Yes, I understood HVAC system quite well because I have a Bachelor's degree in HVAC&R, but I have moved on to different field since graduate school. I can certainly get a license/permit and buy all the equipment to install my own system. But that does not make sense economically.

sounds like nothing is wrong and how do you know that they skipped these steps were you over their shoulder the whole time i sure hope for there sake you were not. operation sounds normala nd to get proper dehumidification long runs cycles are the norm. i would first relx turn the stat to 75 walk away and if she holds 75 on a hot day and turns off at least a little bit relax there is more then likely no issue. If i was the contractor and some home owner who knows nothing says we didnt do things when i know my guys did I would be kinda upset as well. If you know so much why didnt you do it yourself. And save the contractor the hassel also to cut down on run time you coulda put in a 5 ton system it wount run very long but your house may feel like the rain forest
