Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Gas Fired Furnace. Replaced 16x20x1 Air Filter. While testing electrical components, found Blower Capacitor testing below rating. Replaced Blower Capacitor and tested operation. Cleaned Pressure switch tubing which was blocked with buildup. Inspected Heat Exchanger and Burner Assembly. Put system in Heating Mode and Measured Amp Draw on Inducer Motor and performed Combustion Analysis of Furnace. Combustion readings were within standards and Air Temperature readings were within standards. During tune up noted that on the Gas Line there is an Union Fitting inside of the Furnace Cabinet. Would recommend repiping the Gas Line to remove this fitting from inside the Furnace as these fittings may leak, which would be a major safety issue. Tested fitting with leak solution and found no leaks at this time. Also found old Humidifier had been abandoned. Would recommend either removing and sealing the duct work or replacing with a new Humidifier. The old hu
Checked no cooling complaint, found blower running but no outdoor unit. Checked outdoor unit, found no power to unit. Breaker tripped. Checked for shorts and grounds, found none. Reset breaker. Started air conditioner, could not check charge due to rusted king valve. Checked air filter ok. Checked temperature drop across coil.
No ac found system running upon arrival, found system to be low on refrigerant, quoted to add refrigerant and customer ok with pricing added close to 3 lbs of r22 check system performance supply air 60 return air 79 system is from 1998 would highly recommend replacing system, by adding refrigerant todayâ€™s system is up running, explained land lord that there is no guarantee on how long the refrigerant can last, could leak next week, next month or in couple days, customer is aware situation
Performed Precision AC tune up on First Floor and Second Floor systems. Both Aprilaire 413 Filters were excessively dirty and needed to be replaced. Tested electrical components on both the indoor and outdoor units. Found the Hard Start Capacitors for each outdoor units are corroding which indicates that they failing. Recommend replacement of both the 88-108 Mfd Start Capacitors with Starting Relay. Measured Air temperatures on each system. Adjusted fan speed settings to increase Air Flow for each unit. While testing systems the drain lines for each system are gravity drains into a stand pipe behind the water heater. The standpipe started to back up and overflow which is the cause of the water on the floor. This standpipe needs to be snaked to clear the blockage or it will continue to overflow. There is no access to clean out the Condensation Drain Pipes. Recommend installation of EZ Traps onto both AC Units to allow better access to clean the PVC drains.
Performed cooling maintenance, checked air filters. Shut off humidifier. Cleaned condensate traps and drains. Checked voltage, amperage and electrical connections, measured capacitor values ok. Started air conditioners, checked refrigerant charge and temperature drop across coil.
Performed two orange gas furnaces check ups, check electrical low and high ok replace both filters, clean sensor and check burners gas pressure low and high ok performed combustion test check split and cycle furnaces ok
Service call that there was a burning odor coming coming from the Gas Furnace. Upon arrival found system shut off at the thermostat and a burning smell present in the house and around the Furnace in the Basement. Put the system in operation and tested. Blower Motor strayed up properly and combustion levels were within range. Allowed system to run and monitored. Checked Ignition Control Board and Variable Speed Blower. Removed the Module Head of the Blower Motor and inspected. The Blower Motor has an Power Conditioner that is very worn and rusted. Inspected all wiring and found no burnt or damaged wires. Cycled system multiple times and could not find a definitive source for the smell. The Air Filter was dirty and could have been blocking the Air Flow and causing the furnace to overheat. If the Windings inside the Blower Motor are starting to fail they could create a burning odor. The Furnace is 20 Years and the components are worn and in poor condition. Would recommend the replacement
Talked to homeowner about heating issues. After talking to him found that second floor is comfortable to him but dinning room and family room on first floor are colder than rest of first floor. There are no returns in this area. In cooling mode this area is fine to him. This area is above the garage where the ceiling is concreate and stuck with mesh . At this point he his now considering adding electric baseboard just in this room do to it whould be major work to add any returns to this room.
Installed Honeywell wire saver thp9045. Used the k termination on the Honeywell lyric for the fan on and compressor function for cooling. Cycled amana gas furnace in cooling mode, and in heating mode, and with only in fan on worked fine in all three functions. Red wire is eliminated from the basement to the tstat , using blue for red terminal now , system is working fine at time of service.
Found a short in exsisting wire running to second floor lyric WiFi thermostat. This is not a wire we installed. Found the short between r and c wires so for now removed yellow wire for cooling to power up thermostat to work for heating for now. Will look into a wire saver device to hook up yellow again for cooling.
Performed Quality Assurance On Two Amana Gas Furnace Installations. Completed Checklist Form. Homeowner informed me that he completed the Finance paperwork and already sent it back. He was going to recheck this. Was informed that the Second Floor System was not getting enough Air Flow. Found the Thermostat set to 74 but the Temperature on the Second Floor was at 83 Degrees. Supply/Return Split was at 24 Degrees. Checked Air Flow Settings and adjusted the Dip Switch Settings to increase Air Flow. Temperature Split was lowered to around 20 Degrees after increasing Blower Speed Settings.
Installed 2 gas furnaces converted from 80 percent oil to 90 percent propane ran new vents into concentric kit, new outlets and switches new gas piping new condensate pumps and new vinyl tubing new April air filters. New thermostats checked and set gas pressures and combustion was ok for both. Filter size 413x2 needs 2 double poll breakers has 4 40 amp now. Told customer
Service call that there was water leaking. Upon arrival, spoke with tenants about issue. Was informed that the Drain Trap which connects to the Main Drain Pipe was overflowing. Blew through all AC Drain Lines and blew through the Main Drain Trap. Poured water through all drain lines to ensure they were clear and to ensure the AC was draining properly. Poured over 10 Gallons of Water through the Drain Trap to ensure it was draining properly. The TEE fitting on the Condensation Drain Pipe was cracked and broken. While this was not the source of the water, it was broken and not glued. To prevent this from leaking cut the drain pipe before the TEE fitting and repiped that section of drain line. Installed a Union Fitting to Access Drain Line. This will allow the drain to be taken apart and removed from the Main Drain Trap it is emptying into without causing stress on any of the Fittings or Pipe.
Performed Six Month Inspection on First Floor System. Changed 16x25x1 Air Filter. Reviewed settings for Air Conditioning. Cleaned Condensation Pump and inspected EZ Trap. Measured Refrigerant Charge on system. Used Charging Jacket to verify Refrigerant levels due to lower Ambient outdoor Temperature. System is operating to standards at this time.
Performed Precision AC Tune Up on Bryant System. Checked 24x30x1 Air Filter in Central Return. Air Filter was clean and in good condition. Due to the size of the Attic and the Configuration of the Flex Ductwork, I was not able to access the Air Handler to inspect. The Auxiliary Drain Pan underneath the Air Handler does have a Float Switch in it which should cut power to the unit if the Auxiliary Drain Pan fills with water. The Condensation Pipe drains into the Outside gutter near the Outdoor Unit. Blew through the Drain Line from the Outside. Inspected Electrical Components on the Outdoor Unit. Measured Refrigerant on System. Do to age of system, 19 Years Old, would recommend begin planning/saving for replacement of the unit. Would recommend installing more plank boards in the Attic to allow easier access to maneuver through attic. The Flex Ducts may need to be disconnected to access the Air Handler and then reinstalled once the Air Handler has been accessed and serviced.
