I am new to heat pumps.
I went to check a heatpump today with outdoor ambient at 68°,in the heat mode the discharge gas went thru the reversing valve to the indoor coil and was putting heat out at the registers.
The suction gauge was pegged out and the high side gauge was around 70psig.
when I switched to cool mode,something strange happened,the compressor acted like it was trying to start and after a couple of tries it started up.
These are the readings:M#CPH481FB S#9601075257
135psig high side
75psig low side
194° discharge temp
71.9°suction line temp / superheat:27°
70.4 liquid line temp / subcooling:6.4°
I went into the attic and checked coil and airflow,the coil was descent clean and airflow was good.
I inspected line set and coil for leaks and found none.
I will have to go back with D-tek and check further.
Oh,yeah and a large fire ant mound around the compressor,I was only able to dig out part of it today.
Any suggestions? thanks
