Trane XL13i Off but Hot
Okay, I guess the hotness is just a mystery. I found my temp gun and starting taking some temp reading around the house. So maybe I can get some advice on this.
The thermostat is set to 78 and the unit has been running all day, outside is 88-90. My attic is up to 113-116.
My return/intake temp is 75-77.
All registers, from 64-67
Are these numbers good for cooling?
Some of the rooms are at 75-76, but the wall around the tstat and tstat itself is 77-78. Could the thermostat be making some heat itself and causing it's thermometer to read high?
I have a hot area on my vaulted ceiling that is 90-93, so that is a concern. I know this area is uninsulated on the attic side, I'll be trying to put some insulation on this spot soon.
Also the metal louvers for the whole-house fan that is 95-100. This just happens to be close to the thermostat. I removed the insulation I had covering this in order to use the fan these past nice days, I need a way to cover/uncover this in the attic without having to go into the attic every day.
I just wish I could get the a/c to turn off during the day, it runs non-stop and if I turn it off the house instantly starts to heat up.
