I think it's a 6 or 7 years old. Recently replaced. No explanation of why..
But, when I did a short test the day of delivery, it was idea weather for a test. Raining & 80F. in an open garage.
Looking at the amount of water that came out. I estimate 1/2 quart per hour. (or less).
Spec says under idea conditions, 2 quarts per hour.

On some of the reviews I've seen, there were owners saying that refrigerant slowly leaked out. (4 or 5 years)
I hope that's all that's wrong with this one.Hope it just needs a shot of R410A..
Planning to test some more when I get some air filters.

Noticed the compressor got really hot. Wondering what the normal operating temperature is.?.
