    Next time you do one.
    Also check the amp draw compared to a scroll of the same BTU rating.
    Actually I have, so far current draw has been on the money, also factoring in indoor and outdoor temps. I even checked back on a couple when the indoor temps got within 70-72 to make sure amps and pressures were within limits.

    What does on the money mean?

    My amp meter doesn't ever give me a reading that says"on the money"

    Do you mean it was drawing its exact RLA when you checked it.

    I'd get one, but then I'd have to learn how to read.
