Morning. I am new to this forum and I need some advice. I have a 3 ton Trane XE 1000 (10 SEER) that is 11 years old. Had our tech come out for semi annual check up and he tells me that the outside AC (we have a split system with gas furnace) is pulling 11 amps and that is should only be 7.5. He says that this will be a problem when the unit is under a summer load and that it will fail. The weather on the day of his visit was in the low to mid 70s. Consequently, I started the process of pricing new units, but I am not 100% sure that I need one now. Any and all input will be appreciated.

Thanks.
