Your compressor is now installed, run tested and charged. It seems to be running great but you need to be sure.
Follow these 4 basic steps:
- Check to be sure gauge pressures are normal for the particular ambient and box temperature.
- Check key components such as amp draw, oil level and Super Heat. A good rule of thumb is 20 degs at the compressor.
- A good mechanical contractor will always return the next day to see that these critical indicators are holding true. Remember- The goal is a satisfied customer.
- Make sure that you always replace the contactors, driers and perform a thorough inspection of the electrical system each and every time you replace a compressor.
Remember, you only want to change the compressor once. So finding the reason for the failure is a must.
