    The contractor was a lot at fault. In Aledo, most things don't have to be inspected. You should have seen what the circuit breaker boxes looked like. There were 2 white wires coming off the 2-pole 240V circuit breakers. Who ever heard of that? They should have been black and red.

    I think the contractor had his friends do a lot of the work who really didn't know what the heck they were doing.

    The thing about RNC (residential new construction)...
    Is the builder is only on the hook for one year.
    I have heard supers say... 'It only has to last for 366 days'...
    Sheesh... no wonder the quality sucks!

    These photos should be sent to TDLR in Austin along with installer info.

    Not to say that measurements are not vital, of course they are. A month, usually, will not go by when I don't find some system that is grossly overcharged.

    Yet I find many cases where I can go to evaluate a system (have been forced by not having my truck) with just a thermometer and my hands.

    A happy 😄 compressor , temperature wise and delta T on the evaporator tells you a lot.
