    I put in a new ac in a house last summer. The ac has been working great all summer long keeping the house at 75 degrees. They called me tonight said they came home from vacation and turned on the ac it ran for 6 hours and did not drop below 82. My gauge readings are perfect it just doesn't seem like it is blowing that cool or strong out of the registers.

    What's your delta T? Did they have it off the whole time. Tell them to leave it on and call you tomorrow.

    YA ....what was it when they turned it on 90. Have them try it tomorrow at a decent set temperature. I always hate homeowners calling on a weekend they have been gone all week end with the a/c off then turn it on in a house that has baked all weekend and the walls are hot and it is 90 in the house and it wont catch up. They need to get a clue. Oh well its not like a lot of them dont figure that one out. They need to figure out that if they want to save energy while they are gone they will have to deal with the conseqences when they come back. At least for tonight.

    Tell them to leave the t-stat at 75 degrees when they go on vacation, and you won't have a problem. If your guage readings are perfect, then check the duct work. they may have a supply with a hole in it under the house.
