Installed an access panel to clean the evaporator.


Found the txv bulb exposed. Insulated the txv with 7/8" x 1" Armor Flex as well as a few feet of the suction line and installed an in-line float safety switch. Insulated a few feet of the main drain and blew it out..


..and installed a secondary drain pan float switch..


and I wired them both in series to shut off the condenser.

Plus a condenser cleaning and a 5-2-1 Hard Start Kit installed. I sealed the entire return plenum which was leaking all over the place, sucking in lots of attic air. The system dropped 5.7 degrees supply air temperature with just this maintenance work, 62.6f ending. Needs the correct size lineset so I didn't want to get too technical with the charge.
