Condensation


So he didn't record the SH and SC so you could tell us what it was?

Condensation


I did not think to ask. I do recall a temperature reading of 50 on the refrigerant line. Not sure which one he had the probe connected to though.

Condensation


At 50, it would have been on the vapor line(the large line).

If it was on the small line. You would have a big problem.

SH and SC would tell me more. So will pics.

Condensation


Just a thought here. The primary condensate drain is the only one hooked up. Would hooking up the secondary help in case there was to much to much condensation ocurring from the evaporator at one time. I tend to think the blower is sucking up some condensate.

Condensation


Shouldn't be able to suck up any condensate. Unless the velocity through the coil is too high. In which case. It would mean there is an air flow issue.

Condensation


I think I have found the problem, It is the supply take off starting collars that attach to the plenum in the attic. They were poorly installed and are detached somewhat and leaking conditioned air. I remember telling the tech that at night the plenum showed signs of light frosting but when the sun rises the plenum would sweat badly. He told me that the sun rise should have no bearing on whether it would frost or sweat. In fairness to him he did say he could get his duct guy to look at the ducts. I plan on doing the repair myself and will let you know if it solves the problem.
