Question about Heating & Cooling
Hi, do you have a thermometer that you can insert in the grill to see what the supply air temperature is? Like one you use to insert in a turkey to check to see if it is done? If not, you should be able to tell if the air is refrigerated by putting your hand in front of it to make sure the compressor is on. If its on the air will be very cool. If not, it will feel warm, just fan air only. Depending on the heat load that was in the home before you turned it to cool, will depend on how long it will take to cool the room down to the desired temperature. If the led screen is in very warm area's for a period of time, it will be off and not correct until it cools down. I don't know the sq. footage of the area you are trying to cool, but just give it some time to capture the heat load in this area, and keep an eye on it. It should be putting out about 56* F air at the supply. Was the unit new and just installed? If so, you will have to give it lots of time to capture the heat load in the home. If it is a used or older unit, you may want to go outside and wash out the condenser coil. Another way to see if the compressor is pumping and cooling, is see if the air coming off of the outdoor coil is hot blowing in your face. This is the unit giving off heat from the inside of your home to the cooler surrounding air. Listen for the compressor running also. If it is new, it will take plenty of time before it will cool down, its not a central system, so it will work much harder to do this. Please keep me informed on its progress and don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. I will be checking in on you also, as I keep your file on hand for future problems and this one also. Please give it some time and keep me posted.
