brand new AC unit not cooling house
We just had a brand new Goodman AC installed in the basemen of our house.

We had the AC running for a few days and noticed that the house was not cooling down on the main and second floor, but the basement is nice a cool.

The vents on all floors are open and cold air is mildy blowing out of them, but even with the thermostat set to 72, our main floor temp is 80+ (and it's maybe 85 outside).

We looked at the cooling unit, and the coils were frozen. We turned everything off let it 'defrost,' But it didn't help matters.

Have someone coming up to check on freon, but not until later in the week and I was just wondering if anyone here had anything thoughtful insights as to what the problem could be.

A weld on the lineset is not good.

What really irritates me is that there should've been a pressure test performed to ensure no leaks.

If it's a brand new system the Contractor should get his ass over there now not the end of the week. I am not impressed by him. Even if he's booked he already made $$$on your job and has a responsibility.

1. The contactor should get there ASAP...if he provided and installed the Goodman.
2. Right now, we don't know if its a leak, improperly charged or something else.....I have installed Goodman's that had leaks from the factory (which is why I quit installing Goodman's 3 years ago because I picked up a Goodman at the distributor which had a leak on a factory joint....they wanted to send a rep out a week later to verify the leak....Sorry Mr. Homeowner, "i was sold a defective unit but they won't take it back and I have to wait a week to get authorization.....B.S I just fixed it and got them cooling that day :))
