Hey guys, have a question. Had a family member call me who owns rental properties and has a unit, rheem 2 ton not cooling. Before I had a chance to get there, they already had someone come out and look at it cause the suction line was freezing all the way to the compressor. He added refrigerant and left. Now I'm in the picture, I hook up my gauges after I check airflow on air handler etcetera etcetera. R-22 system, low side reads, fairly steady 85psig for a saturation temp of I think it was 58*, high side pressure was bouncing steadily back and forth from just under 250psig ALL the way up to slightly over 500 psig. Restriction? Newer to the field and could use a little guidance. ODA was 85*, humid day but don't know wet bulb, superheat was non existent as the temp on the suction line on the compressor pretty much matched the saturation temp, plus or minus a degree or two. What are your guys thoughts? Also, should I just kind of lead them in the direction of its time for a new system? 22 years is a good run. Thanks in advance.
