    Good evening, Took everyones advise & had a tech out yesterday. Not the best of days for service ( around 35 degrees ambient ). By the gauges the unit wasn't low, he said if anything it had to much charge. His advice was to wait till warmer weather since it wasn't completely broken.
    So today I decided to compare it to my properly operating 13 seer HP. Believe it or not the suction line temps on each unit were basicly the same 125 to 130 @ 40 ambient, but she has a 14 degree TR while I enjoy a 22 degree TR.
    She burns scented candles, so much so the filter looks like its been painted with flat black paint. Could the oils from the candles adhere to the Acoil to make it not pick up all the heat thats there? I know I'm thinkin out of the box.

    I have seen excessive candle use wreak havoc on HVAC systems

    Thank You, Thank You, LK Sir, Today while I was there I turned the heat off, the AH fan on, a therm in the supply read exactly the same as return air at grille. So the return isn't sucking cold attic air. Its good to know that wasn't a silly question I asked.
    By my math its running 70% efficient.I know I'll never get to 100%, 85 to 90 would tickle me pink. As far as cleaning, hot soapy water with a sprayer or do they make better solutions? And thanks again
