I just had a 'professional' come out to the house to inspect my A/C. I live in a 6 year old house that has a 3-ton Carrier condenser on the side of the house, which is 1996 sqft. I have been getting around 60 degree air coming from the vents in the family room but about 73 degree air coming from the vents in my bedroom.
So, the pro comes in, checks around the house, then goes up to the attic and doesn't report anything wrong. Then he goes outside to the condenser and gets a suction pressure reading of 80 and a liquid pressure reading of 315. From this, he tells me that i need to spend a boat-load of money on a 4 ton evaporator coil with TXV in order to fix the problem, and I need to do it now before my condenser gets ruined.
Am I getting hosed here? There has to be something that can be done to reduce the liquid line restriction without replacing the evaporator coils, no?
Any help you can give me would be appreciated!
