Air flow versus refrig charge

riverrunwestJuly 18, 2011

I had a 2 ton system installed and they used a 12 inch return duct with a 20x20 filter rack. The filter would make alot of noise so I replaced the 12 inch with 16 inch. The noise is gone and it seems there is more air flow, do I really need to have the charge checked? The system is cooling well just curious.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo


since the noise issue is resolved and home is comfortable, I wouldn't bother either.

if you are motivated, you could check TD. you want a split about 15 degree minimum between supply temp and return temp.

Good Luck!
