I'm not looking for it to work by accident...I don't even want a "Predictable Suprise", by this I mean one or two anticipated problems a year. I want a system that works and I don't have to worry about it, just maintain it, give it checkups, and I'm very happy and content...I will get the money for it...but only after bad days have fallen, that's the way it is in the business world sometimes.
I'm fine with 70....I will see if the Liebert guy can fit me with a backup system to keep on the backburner....in the summer, the unit may not be able to run at 70 or even 72, and that will be when I really have a fit and demand to put in the proper system....by that point I may even be willing to pay for some of it out of my own pocket to prove the point (and then pray to be reimbursed, but if I don't it's the price I pay for sleeping soundly at night)
Chillerdude....the unit froze up once on Christmas morning....it was set at 68 or 65, I don't remember exactly, the fan was set to auto, and the supply duct grill that was closest to the return was facing the return, since then, the grill was rotated to face the back of the room away from the return, the fan is at the on position, and the tstat is at 70. I don't like when my room goes thermal on me, and it will happen faster than my 3.5 lt V6 can get me to the office, so I don't want to test it by setting it to 65 and monitoring it all night and all day.
My installer says I can set it to 65 and forget it now, I think he feels the freeze up happened b/c the fan was on auto and not set to "on".
Bottom line is that I don't trust this unit to work under 70 so I'm not going to bother....in the summer I will see if it can handle it, and if it can't I will install a liebert as I stated above.
