After installing the wet switch and turning power back on we discovered the unit running the fan. After two hours checking wiring and diagnostic work and confirming with tech support we have determined the control board is defective. The outdoor Y terminal disconnected will allow the system to run normal in heating mode but removes cooling entirely. Returned to complete the control board installation. Issues were all addressed, tested wet switch, tested drains with water bottles. No issues are present. Thank you for choosing CPI Plumbing and Heating Inc.

Arrived onsite customer has had their hvac system leak water from attic into the second floor. Issues present, drain pan under indoor unit is very small and is only underneath the ac coil. Issue number two no wet switch is present in drain pan, this would cut off power to the unit if water entered the drain pan. Issue number three current secondary drain pan is tied into the primary drain pan if primary drain backed up, secondary drain would back up as well. Issue four, current drain line has no strapping and is back graded shortly after leaving the unit. Recommend installing a larger drain pan 5ft by 36 inches in size, recommend adding two p traps one for each drain line. Recommend replacing section of primary drain line that is back graded. Recommend running a completely separate secondary drain line, securing primary and secondary drain line every 4 feet confirming that the drains have proper grade ( currently no strapping is present). Secondary drain line would run out of the atti
Arrived onsite customer had informed me that she had a leak. Discovered that it was coming from the temperature and pressure relief valve as it had failed. And the dhw expansion tank had failed also. Presented pricing customer approved the pricing. Performed work. Discovered a small leak on the boiler expansion tank presented pricing customer approved, so I performed the work. After I swapped out those parts I filled the system up to 15 psi, turned power on to the boiler. And had the customer confirm that she had hot water, and had them give a call for heat. Customer informed me that she had hot water, and I watched as a call for heat on the heating side of things was performed. No error codes or failed attempts at a call for heat.
