My install manager came out to the house to remove a faulty TXV that was torched during initial installation of my new AC/furnace system a couple weeks ago, and caused the AC system to malfunction after only a day!! After removing the TXV and bypassing it, he failed to close-off something, and ALL of the R410 refrigerant somehow leaked out of the system within a day. The condenser fan continued to run like normal, but was not blowing cool air anymore. My next service call brought out a different tech, who located the issue, and then had to re-charge the whole system fully. It was their fault, and they admitted it should not have happened. My concern is if there is any possible wear or damage to the two-stage scroll compressor while the condenser unit was running more than a day with absolutely zero R410a in it?? Is this an issue?? Thanks.
ps- the new TXV looked of much better quality and did not require a torch to install. Seems to be working, i guess.
