As always the service was great.
Checked noise coming from the blower. Checked blower, found bearings failing. Replaced blower motor and run capacitor. Started blower and checked operation and amperage.
Checked no cooling complaint, found broken thermostat wire at outdoor unit, repaired wire. Started air conditioner, checked refrigerant charge, found low on charge, recommended replacing system and expanded out dated refrigerant. Topped off refrigerant charge and balanced by superheat.
Performed cooling maintenance, replaced standard air. Blew out condensate trap and drain. Checked voltage, amperage and electrical connections, measured capacitor values. Started air conditioner, checked refrigerant charge and temperature drop across coil.
Performed Precision AC Tune Up on system. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Inspected and tested electrical components on Indoor and Outdoor Units. Blew through condensation drain line to ensure it was clear. Put system into Air Conditioning mode and measured refrigerant charge. Measured Amp Draws on outdoor components. Measured Wet Bulb and verified Refrigerant charge. Measured Supply and Return air temperature readings upon completion.
Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Ruud Gas Furnace. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Inspected Burners, heat exchanger, and cleaned Flame Sensor. Inspected Electrical Components wiring connections on unit. Put system into operation and performed Combustion Analysis. Measured Amp Draw on Inducer motor and Blower Fan which were both testing within stated rating. The Gas Furnace and AC are both 20 Years old. While the system is operating, due to age would recommend replacement of the Gas Furnace/AC system before any major component failure occurs. System is showing signs of age and wear with rust and corrosion around the burners, flue piping, and dirt buildup on the blower wheel. Water Heater is about 11 Years old. Would recommend replacement of the Water Heater before any issues occur. Average life for water heaters is 10-12 Years.
Performed Heating tune up on Gas Fired furnace. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Removed and cleaned burners and flame sensor. Inspected Heat Exchanger. Burners and heat exchanger showing no signs of rust. Tested electrical components on Furnace. Cleaned Inducer tubing and Orifices. Put system in operation and performed Combustion Analysis and measured Air Temperatures. Replaced batteries on thermostat before starting system. System operating to standards upon completion.

Performed Precision AC Tune Up on system. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Inspected and tested electrical components on indoor and outdoor units. Blew through condensation drain pipe at discharge in wash sink. Measured Refrigerant charge on system. Measured Voltage and Amp Readings of Compressor. Measured Supply and return Air Temperatures. Refrigerant charge was to recommended Superheat levels. System operating to standards at this time.
Performed Precision AC Tune Up on system. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Inspected Electrical Components on Indoor and Outdoor Units. Cleared Drain Line from only access point at the Wash Sink. Measured refrigerant charge on system. System is cooling properly, the refrigerant charge appears to be low. Refrigerant levels are around the Freezing temperature at the Indoor Coil. If they fall below this, the Indoor Coil May freeze up causing a loss of cooling. Spoke with homeowner about issue. Included an estimate for the cost to add R-22 Refrigerant to the system. System is operating but is 20 Years old. Due to age and efficiency of system would recommend replacement of the Gas Furnace/AC system before any major component/refrigerant failures occur.
Performed Heating Tune Up on Gas Furnace. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Inspected Electrical Components on furnace. Removed Burners and Flame Sensor and cleaned. Burners and Heat Exchanger are clean and in good condition. Performed Combustion Analysis on Furnace and measured Amp Readings on Inducer Motor which were within rating. Replaced Thermostat batteries provided by Homeowner. System is operating to standards. Thank you for renewing your Service Membership today!
Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Gas Furnace. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Tested Electrical Components on system. Inspected Heat Exchanger and noted rust along the middle tubing. Removed Blower Wheel and inspected the Heat Exchanger. Found no visible damage or rust through on the Heat Exchanger. Performed Combustion Analysis on system. Inducer Motor is starting to rub internally on the bearings (this has been noted previously). System is operating to standards at this time, but due to age, recommend to begin planning for replacement of the Gas Furnace/AC System.
Service call that the system was not keeping up to Temperature. Upon arrival found thermostat set to 74 and Indoor Temperature was at 74. Homeowner informed me that the system has run non-stop last few days/nights. Turned cooling down to 70 to test Operation. Found Supply versus Return Air Differential was only at 9-10 Degrees. Measured Refrigerant Charge and found System was low on Refrigerant. This was causing the low Supply Temperature and the System was not producing enough cooling to keep up with the demand. Added 2lbs of R-22 Refrigerant to System, Charging by Superheat. Liquid pressure on the system was higher than normal. Rinsed the Outdoor Coil with Water. The higher Liquid Refrigerant Pressures are attributed to the inefficiency and age of the system. If the system is low on Refrigerant than there is a leak in the system. Checked Air Filter on Unit. There is no Access to clean out the Condensation Drain Pipe which drains directly into the Sewer Line, no Trap is Installed on D
Had previously been onsite and recommended the following repairs. Returned and Installed a new Single Pole 24V Coil 40 Amp Contactor onto the Outdoor Unit. Installed a new 30/3 Mfd Dual Capacitor onto the Outdoor Unit. Removed damaged section of Thermostat Wiring Outside and ran a new Section of Wire to Outdoor Unit. Secured wiring to the Line Set. Tested operation of system upon completion. Completed AC Tune Up Checklist. Measured Refrigerant Charge on system. System is operating and cooling. The Head Pressure Is higher than normal but the Outdoor Unit is sitting directly in the sunlight which will raise the temperature of the Outdoor Unit and increase head Pressure. Also the lower efficiency of the system due to age may be attributing to the higher pressures. Due to age of system, recommend begin planning for replacement of the Gas Furnace/AC.
Performed Precision Air Conditioning Tune Up on System. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Cleared Drain Line from end of Condensation Pipe at the Wash Sink. Inspected and tested Electrical Components on Indoor and Outdoor Units. Measured Refrigerant Charge on system and measured Supply/Return Air Temperatures. Refrigerant levels were to standards at this time.
Returned to site to install new Control Board. Removed failed Control Board and Wiring. Installed new Board and made all Electrical Connections. Repaired wiring that was damaged during the burn up of the Board. Tested Operation of system in both Heating and Cooling Modes to ensure proper operation. While onsite performed AC Tune Up on system. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter provided by Homeowner. Cleared Drain Line from the Wash Sink where the Pipe drains into. There is no Access to clean Drain Line from the Coil. Inspected Electrical Components on the Indoor and Outdoor Units. While operating currently, recommend replacement of the Single Pole Contactor and the Dual Capacitor for the Outdoor Unit. Also recommend replacing a section of Thermostat Wire at the Outdoor Unit that the Insulation has worn through. Please see attached estimates. Due to age of system, 19 Years Old, recommend begin planning for replacement of the GasFurnace/AC before any further issues occur.
Service call that there was a burning smell coming from the system, and it was not Cooling. Upon arrival spoke with Homeowner about issue. System was turned off, and a burning smell was present in the home. Turned the unit into AC Mode to test Operation. The Outdoor Unit was running but the Indoor Blower was not operating. Inspection of the Control Board showed that the Board had failed and burned up. Rewired the Blower Fan to Test the Blower and ensure that it was not damaged. The Blower Motor was running, but the Control Board began sparking and the burning smell increased with the system running. Wired Blower Motor to original position and shut the system down at the shut off switch above the unit. Due to the Damage of the Control Board it is not safe to operate the unit. A Universal Control Board is not compatible with this system. We will contact Rheem on Monday morning to get pricing/availability of a new Control Board. After the Control Board is replaced we will test the syste
