Question about Heating & Cooling
Need to relocate my condenser about 3 feet from the slab it's on. any easy way to do this. any isolation valves etc?

Hi, when the copper lines at the condensing unit, the larger of the 2- start to form ice, you have a freon leak. The unit is new, so I would expect the leak to be at one of the welded/brazed joints. What will happen, is the indoor unit, the evaporator coil will start to ice over and block off all air flow through through the coil. I hate to tell you this, you will need to call the installer out to do a leak check on the unit. They will then need to pump it down, braze the leak with sil-phos, or silver solder and recharge the unit. This is the problem, I see this a lot on new units. Someone forgot to do a leak check on it. Being only a month old, it has to have a warranty on it, shouldn't cost you a dime, but this is the problem, indeed!! Please keep me updated on this and get them out there. It will never cool until they fix the leak and recharge it. Please don't forget to rate me on this, I know you will be kind. Keep me posted and you can contact me by my user name below. Thank you Zeke! You still have freon in the unit, just low enough to start the suction line outside to start to ice and loose your cooling.
