Luke-warm liquid line

Over the past 2 cooling systems the liquid line has never gotten hotter than luke warm. The suction line is ice cold; the delta T usually runs in the 18 to 20 degree range.

Is this the result of sub-cooling?

The condenser is a 16 SEER unit, but is (properly) matched to a coil delivering 14.5 SEER.

Overall, I seem to recall that the last 2 summers have been mild by comparison.

Luke-warm liquid line

A 16 SEER generally won't have a very warm liquid line.

Its not really a function of SC itself.

Its that big condenser coil.
