I have a new furnace, humidifier, indoor coil, electronic filter, outdoor unit. The works. I have never in my life had the luxury of central air. (Where I live in Colorado and we have practically no humidity and there will only be maybe 3 days that even hit 99+ this entire summer. )
So...I understand the forums policy on DIY but how can I check to make sure my install is running correctly? Its going to be a good month before we have a 90 degree day and I really want to "test this baby out".
For example...the liquid line feels warm to the touch but not as hot as my neighbors unit. Can I set the thermostat in front of a register and record a temp..if so how cold should it be? Can I take pictures of the unit and post them, not really sure you can tell much just by pics?
I have done quite a bit of reading around these forums and looked through the walls of "shame and fame". But I need advice on how a homeowner, not a DIY-er could check to verify things are good to go before it gets hot and I am fighting with my installer to come fix what could've been fixed already.
Yes, I know there are going to be those who say to call my installer...and I do have faith that they did a good job, but I just need to see for myself.
also..I was wondering since my unit has R410a, would that make the liquid line feel "not as warm" as one with R22? I just sure that line doesn't feel warm enough.
