Chris has been servicing out heater and air condition for a few years. We bought both units from DiBase when we moved into our home.We could not give anything but positive reviews about Chris and look forward to seeing him. The person that scheduled our appointment was so professional and pleasant. We recommend them whenever we can.

Service call for that the Air Conditioner was not Cooling the Home and the Outdoor Unit Fan was not spinning. Arrived onsite and spoke with Homeowner about issue. Turned System to Cooling to test Operation. Found that the Compressor was running but the Condenser Fan Motor had failed and was seized. Shut power off to the system and removed the failed Fan Motor. Installed a new 208-230V 825 RPM Rescue Motor with a new Dual 50/7.5 Mfd Capacitor for the System. Made all wiring connections. Reassembled Condenser and put into operation. Measured Refrigerant Charge on system. Measured Amp Draw on the Fan Motor at 1.8 Amps, with the Motor rated for 1.9 Amps. Took Supply and Return Air Temperatures on the system. System is operating to standards at this time. Due to age and overall condition of the system, recommend begin planning/saving for replacement of the Gas Furnace/AC System.

Performed Precision AC Tune Up on York System. Replaced 14x25x1 Air Filter. Inspected Electrical Components on Indoor and Outdoor Units. Found the Dual Capacitor on the Outdoor Unit was very Rust and in poor condition. Also found Contactor very pitted and Arc marks were present around Contactor Pads. When System was operating the Coil on the Contactor was buzzing loudly indicating that it was worn and beginning to fail. Also found Vinyl Tubing for the Condensation Pump was very dirty and appeared clogged in multiple areas. Replaced the 50/5 Dual Capacitor and Single Pole Contactor on the Outdoor Unit. Cut Vinyl Tubing inside and ran new Vinyl Tubing to the Sump Pump in the Basement. Tested operation of Pump to ensure it was discharging properly. Measured Refrigerant Charge on system. Refrigerant levels were to standards at this time. Please note that the Water Heater is about 13 Years old. Due to age, recommend replacement of the 50 Gallon Atmospheric Water Heater Heater before failu

Performed Precision AC Tune Up on System. Checked 14x25x1 Air Filter. Filter was clean and in good condition. Cleaned Condensation Drain Pump and Drain Line. Inspected Electrical Components on Indoor and Outdoor Units. Measured Refrigerant Charge on system. Refrigerant Pressures are at normal levels but the Superheat is higher and the Sub-cooling is lower. While the system is cooling with a 20 Degree Temperature Differential, the Sub-cooling/Superheat Levels could indicate that the system is slightly low on Refrigerant. The Outdoor Unit is in poor condition and is not running as efficiently. There is damage along the bottom fins of the coil on the Outdoor Unit. Recommend begin planning/saving for replacement of system.

Service call that the Heat for the Second Floor was not working. Arrived onsite and spoke with Homeowner about issue. Found Second Floor Thermostat was calling for Heat. Proceeded to the Furnace in the Attic to troubleshoot. Furnace was displaying a 3 Flash Code indicating a Pressure Switch issue. Cycled Furnace and found that the Inducer Motor was not turning on. Tested Voltage, and the Inducer Motor was not receiving Voltage to turn on. The Control Board was not sending the correct Voltage and the was immediately locking out in a Pressure Switch Error Code upon start up. The Control Board is failing and needs to be replaced. There may be further issues with the Furnace that cannot be determined at this time until the Control Board is replaced. We will order the Control Board in the morning and follow up to schedule the repair based upon availability of the Board. Returned to replace Control Board. Removed faulty Board and installed new Control Board. Rewired Control Board into sy

Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Trane Gas Fired Furnace. Checked High Efficiency 413 Air Filter. Homeowner ordered new Filters and will replace when they arrive. Humidifier was not serviced during this visit as per Homeowner. Inspected Electrical Components on Furnace. Removed Burners to inspect and clean. Burners and Heat Exchanger are in good condition. Performed Combustion Analysis on Furnace and measured the High Stage Heat Gas Pressure. Recommend installing an ECM Motor Surge Protector for the Blower Motor. The ECM Motors and their Control Modules are very sensitive to Power Surges/Spikes. If damaged during a Power Spike they can be expensive to replace. The One Time Surge Protector can help protect the Motor in such an event.

Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Gas Fired York Furnace. Replaced 14x25x1 Air Filter. Inspected Electrical Components on Furnace. Inspected Burners and Heat Exchanger. Both are free of visible rust and corrosion. The Hot Surface Ignitor is operating, but when tested electrically, it is measuring at the Higher end of its rating. A preventative measure would be to replace the Ignitor before it fails. Performed Combustion Analysis on Furnace while measuring Outlet Gas Pressure. Gas Pressure was set below rating at 2.4" WC. Adjusted Gas Pressure up to 3.0" WC to improve Combustion Levels. Amp readings on the Draft Inducer Motor were slightly above its rating. This could be a sign that the Inducer Motor is beginning to wear and is working harder to run. A recommended Air Quality Enhancement for this system would be to install a Whole House ByPass Humidifier. Benefits of Humidifiers are they introduce moisture into the Dry Air that is a result of the Furnace. This improves Air Qualit

Performed Precision Heat Tune Up on Heat Pump System. Checked 22x22x1 Air Filter. Filter was clean and in good Condition. Inspected Electrical Components on the Indoor and Outdoor Units. Found Single Pole Capacitor on Outdoor Unit is pitted and has excessive ash around the Pads. Due to the Condition of the Contactor, recommendation would be to replace Contactor. Tested Operation of system with Auxilary Heat and with the Heat Pump. Measured Refrigerant levels of system. Forced system into Defrost to ensure it was switching over properly. Homeowner informed me that they are getting notifications from PECO about high energy consumption. Air Handler is from 1989 and the Outdoor Unit is from 1999. The Air Handler and the Outdoor Unit are different Manufacturers as well. The system is responding and operating as it should. However, due to the age, it is operating very ineffienctly which correlates to increased Energy Consumption. The system is running, but is working harder and longer to d
