    If U read my post, I was not referring to that particular case or even to what anyone else does, - I was referring to if "I" were still doing service work & installs.

    Real high airflow will usually result in high superheat, not low or no SH.

    Anyway, I am NOT faulting U for taking your position, merely explaining mine...

    You're an okay guy, keep satisfying your customers...

    [QUOTE I watched the guy install it and he did a fantasic job. Pulled a vacuum, checked for leaks, then set the superheat.[/QUOTE]

    U watched him pull a vacuum. Did it sound like the pump was running?

    I had to run an extension cord out to the condenser so the first guy could run his vacuum pump. Guess he didn't know how to hook up to the 220V. Then he pulled a vacuum and took a break. I'm assuming there was no leak when he came back. I checked the manuals for the 1.5 ton and the 2.5 ton condensers and they show a different superheat number for each unit. Of course I never saw the guy look at a chart to get the correct superheat for my unit at that temperature, so he either has the whole chart memorized or he just uses a ballpark number.

    Most modern units have reference charging information inside the main electrical access panel. His memory might be great, but the information was most likely right at hand
    A good HVAC tech knows how, an educated HVAC tech knows why!
