The disconnect would be correct, and yes it is a goodman. This is the first time I've seen a condensing unit installed without a disconnect. Is that even to code? Oh well even though I am not a tech I could add a fused disconnect easily if I wanted to. The A coil isn't right on the other side of the wall. The unit is also undercharged.
Yes it's code to have a disconnect.
That's the ONE THING you can usually count a INSPECTOR (if it was inspected) to catch.
Also, if that's a HEAT PUMP make sure to seperate those outdoor capillary tubes and unless it's a late 2003 or newer air handler, JUNK the stack relay and install a FAN MANAGER or other type of MAGNETIC fan relay.
The cap tubes rub holes in each other causing a leak and the stack relays go intermittant in the new units all the time here and prevent the ID blower from running.
Here in Phoenix it's summer time already! So far I'm changing out about 5 stack relays a WEEK!
Cap tubes every other week or so but I'm sure that will pick up in a few more weeks when it stays above 100 degrees all day!
Never seen a Goodman before - or even HEARD of one here in Canada... what's the scoop on them? Past posting are they are the worst... more current posts suggest they are getting better. Wuzzup with Goodman?
Oh, and Payson... I DREAM of 100 degree days!!! I'm tired of looking at Polar Bears... Igloos and all that... I turn on my Furnace to warm the house up enough in the Summer... just so the Air Conditioning will come on!
It's not a heatpump just straight cool with an air handler. The heat is supplied by a boiler and baseboard radiators with an expansion tank and 1 circ pump no zoning. The A/C has a digital t-stat and the heat still has the old round mercury one.
Oh and as far as it being undercharged goes I don't need to be EPA certified and have a gauge set to be able to tell that because you can hear the flash gas going through the orifice from across the building, the suction line stays so warm it never produces any condensation, and the celing vents blow only slightly cool air.
