Turned water supply off to the home and drained down old water heater. Disconnected piping and venting for water heater and removed. Installed a new 50 Gallon Propane Powervented Bradford White water heater in an Auxiliary Drain Pan elevated on bricks with a Water Alarm in the Drain Pan. Adapted piping and installed a new Expansion Tank and new Shut Off Valves for the Hot and Cold Lines. Reconnected Venting and adapted Gas Piping. Tested gas piping to ensure there were no leaks. Filled water heater and purged lines of air. Put in operation and measured Water Pressure and temperature once water heater had fully heated. When removing old water heater found water lines heavily clogged with sediment and buildup. After installing new Water Heater tested water for hardness. Water was testing at 12 Grains Hardness. Would recommend installing a Water Treatment/Softener system. Also noted that water pressure was high on the water heater. Adjusted the regulator down but could not lower water p
Performed Quality Assurance on recently installed Amana Gas Furnace/AC system. Reviewed installation with homeowner. Completed checklist form in system. Recorded PECO Account number so we can process the rebates. Informed homeowners that they need to sign the E-Doc Signature. Need to bring 2-3 bags of stone when we return for Six-Month AC Inspection to fill in ground by the wall of the home where we dug up.
Reclaimed and removed old ac , coil and heater. Installed a new Amana gas heater with a new coil with a txv. Installed a new amana ac unit with rocks under a new plastic pad. Ran new copper lines from ac to coil and brazed and leak checked with soapy bubbles and 300 psi of nitrogen. Reconnected gas piping and adapted all duct work as needed. Ran a new return drop duct with a He filter installed. Ran a new fresh air flue pipe. Sealed all penetrations into the house. Ran a new electrical box with a switch and outlet . Installed a new condensate drain with a ez trap wired in and a new pump with new vinyl tubing ran over to discharge sink. Cut in a new return for the dining room and cut in to return duct. Used existing thermostat. Ac unit was installed with a new disconnect box and whip wired into unit. Installed a new Aprilaire humidifier and piped it in to supply. Ran water line to hit water heater piping. Tested unit in cool and in heat and unit is running at manufacture specifications.
Service call that the Heat was not working. Upon arrival, found system was operating and was informed that the system was working intermittently. System was not out on a Hard Lockout Code. Turned system up to test operation. Found unit very dirty and filter was very dirty. Recommended a Tune Up on the Gas Furnace. Performed Tune Up and tested combustion levels of Furnace. Inspected Electrical Components and cleaned Flame Sensor and Spark Ignitor Assembly. While testing system, found Heat Exchanger was very rusted in each burner chamber. Did not see any rust through, but due to the large amount of rust, would recommend replacement of the system before any further damage occurs. Also found when system lights off the last burner hesitates to fully ignite. When doing tune up, cleaned burners, but if the unit fails to light due to the burners, would recommend replacement of the whole burner assembly. Would need to contact Rheem to get pricing for the replacement of the Burners. System is op
Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Propane Fired Furnace. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Inspected Electrical Components on Furnace. Cleaned Furnace Drain Lines and Condensation Pump. Inspected Burners and Flame Sensor. Flame Sensor has minor pitting beginning to form. Cleaned Sensor and it is still in good condition. Due to the moisture and corrosiveness of the Propane, the Flame Sensor will likely need to be replaced every 2-3 Years to ensure no issues with the Heating. Performed a Combustion Analysis on the system. Furnace is operating to standards at this time.
Performed PECO Heat Pump Tune Up on System. Completed PECO Inspection Form. Replaced the 16x20x1 Air Filter. Please include the following when sending invoice to homeowner: While testing components found the Blower Motor Capacitor testing below its rating. The Turbo Capacitor for the Outdoor Unit was testing within rating but is at the lower end of its rating. The Contactor on the Outdoor Unit is very worn and has Arc Marks present due to being worn. Recommend replacement of these items to avoid any issues. When testing the Compressor the Amp readings measured above what the Compressor is rated for. Compressor is rated for 16.2 Amps and is measuring 16.9 Amps. This could indicate that the compressor is beginning to fail and is working harder to operate. The Outdoor Unit is 20 Years old and the Air Handler is 15. This is a major concern that the compressor is running at higher Amps. Recommend replacement of the system before failure occurs.
Service call that the AC was not working. Upon arrival found Air Handler was calling for 2nd Stage Cooling but the Outdoor Unit was not running. Outdoor Unit was on a 3 Red Flash No Yellow Fault Code. Hooked gauges up to system and found unit was completely flat on Refrigerant. Pressure tested system with 300 PSI of Nitrogen. Found leak coming from the True Capillary Refrigerant Pipe that had rubbed onto the large pipe next to it. Emptied system of Nitrogen and Brazed over Leak spot. Pressure tested system with Nitrogen and monitored for about 10 minutes. Used Leak Bubbles to check area to ensure that it was sealed. Left system with about 240 PSI of Nitrogen. Need to return to rechecked Brazed Area, ensure system is holding pressure, evacuate system to under 500 Microns, and recharge system with 410-A Refrigerant. System came factory charged with 175 oz of 410-A. Test system and add additional Refrigerant as needed due to Lineset length, Charging by Subcooling. Returned to site to co
Performed Precision AC Tune Up on American Standard System. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Cleaned Drain Line, EZ Trap, and Pump. Inspected Electrical Components on Indoor and Outdoor Units. Measured Refrigerant Charge and recorded Supply Return Air Temperatures. System is operating to standards. Due to age of Water Heater (10 Years), would recommend Replacement of the Power-vented Propane Water Heater before any issues arise. Would also recommend installing an ECM Motor Surge Protector onto the Blower Motor. The Motors can be sensitive to Power Spikes/Surges which can cause damage. The one time Surge Protectors May help protect the Motor in a Power Surge Event.
Service call that the Heat was not working. Upon arrival, found the Heat was turned off. The Blower Motor Housing had been removed from the Furnace and was sitting in the bottom of the Furnace Cabinet. Turned the system on and the blower turned on, but was making a loud grinding/squealing noise. This is an indication that the Blower Motor is failing and the is beginning to seize internally. Removed the Blower Motor and installed a new 115V Replacement Blower Motor with a new Capacitor. Wired Motor into system for Heating and Cooling Fan Speeds. Tested operation of system in Heating and Cooling Mode to ensure proper operation of the Blower Motor.
Performed Six Month Inspection on system. Cleaned EZ Trap and Condensation Pump. Inspected all Electrical Components. Replaced the 16x25x1 Air Filter. With System being installed in the summer, tested the Heating Side of the System. Measured Gas Pressure and performed Combustion Analysis on Unit. System is operating to Manufacturer Specifications. Spoke with Homeowner about Water Heater, due to being 9 years old. She would like to replace the Water Heater before Spring next year. At this time there is no water leaking or visible signs of damage to the Water Heater. Their is some corrosion forming at the Base of the Venting Pipe.
Installed new gas furnace and air conditioner. INstalled new Honeywell Pro T6 thermostat. Sealed duct system with mastic. Setup and tested operation.
Performed a maintenance and repaired a moisture issue on a Amana Gas Furnace
Replacing an ECM motor on an Amana Air Handler in Havertown. Their was a power outage that blew out the ECM motor. While replacing the Motor, we also installed an ECM Motor Surge protector to help protect the motor if another power surge occurs.
