Service call that the Bedroom where the Supply Duct was reinstalled was not getting any air out of the Vent. Measured Air Flow at Vent which was measuring about 10 CFM. Found supply ductwork in basement and found the Takeoff had come loose from the Supply Trunk and was not sealed. Secured Take-Off to the Duct Work and taped around the Take-Off to further seal. Also found Damper was loose and was about 3/4 Closed. Tightened the Damper and fully opened. Measured Air Flow increased to about 39-40 CFM. The Bedroom next to this room, which is on a separate supply run, is getting about 55 CFM. If the room still does not maintain temperature, would recommend performing an Air Balancing of the Home to try to balance the Air Flow more evenly throughout the Home.

Modify ductwork to ensure there is enough return air back to system and enough supplies to finished space in kitchen . Modifications also include relocating 1 duct to eliminate building a soffit in kitchen area. Note: General Contractor performing kitchen renovations to cut top and bottom plates where required in order to complete modifications.

Performed Precision AC Tune Up on system. Replaced 14x24x1 Air Filter provided by Homeowner. Inspected Electrical Components on Indoor and Outdoor Units. Cleaned Drain Line and Condensation Pump. Filled Pump and tested operation. Measured Refrigerant Charge on system and recorded Supply and Return Air Temperatures. The system is operating to standards at this time. The AC System was replaced about two years ago. The Furnace is about 16 Years old. Due to the age of the Furnace, would recommend begin planning/saving for replacement. While onsite found corrosion and rust forming around the Expansion Tank for the Water Heater. Did not see any visible water leaking at this time. Tested Expansion Tank to ensure it had Air Pressure. Due to Corrosion would recommend replacement of the Expansion Tank and if needed replacement of the 3/4” Copper Fittings that Expansion Tank mounts to.

Performed Precision Air Conditioning Tune Up on Bryant System. Replaced 16x25x1 Air Filter. Cleared Condensation Drain Pipe and poured Water Through to ensure it was draining. Condensation pipe drains into the foundation. Inspected Electrical Components on Indoor and Outdoor Units. The Capacitor on the Outdoor Unit is testing within rating electrically, but is rusted and appears to be in poor condition. The Single Pole Contactor is very worn and pitted. Recommend replacement of the Dual Capacitor and the Contactor before any issues arise. Would also recommend installing a Super Boost Start Capacitor onto the Unit, due to the Compressor having trouble starting on previous visit. Measured Refrigerant Charge on the System. Refrigerant levels are to standard at this time. The system has needed Refrigerant added the last two summers. While the charge is ok at this time, I do not feel that the system will be able to work through the summer without needing Refrigerant added. The system is ope

Performed a Precision Heating Tune Up on Gas Fired Furnace. Completed Inspection Sheet to be submitted to Management Company. Checked Air Filter on Furnace. Filter was clean and in good condition. Inspected Electrical Components on Furnace. Found the Blower Motor Capacitor was testing at its highest recommended rating. Would recommend replacing the Blower Capacitor to prevent any issues from occurring. Visual Inspection of Heat Exchanger does not show any issues with Integrity. Heat Exchanger is rusted and has some corrosion on it. Performed Combustion Analysis on Furnace. Also performed Combustion Analysis on Water Heater as per Annual Inspection requirements. Carbon Monoxide Levels were at safe ranges for both the Water Heater and Gas Furnace. Due to age of Gas Furnace, recommend begin planning for replacement before any issues occur.

Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Heat Pump System. Replaced the 16x25x2 Air Filter. Inspected a Electrical Components on Air Handler. Measured Refrigerant Charge from Ports at Air Handler. Tested Operation of Heat Pump and Electric Heat. PECO recommended sealing the Duct Work at the Air Handler. Spoke with Homeowner about pricing for this task. Homeowner is going to seal the Ductwork himself. Please see the Below Information for PECO: Account #06374-01004 Refrigerant levels were measured and are to standards at this time. Replaced the Air Filter Checked Blower Fan Motor and no lubrication was needed. Evaporator Coil was inspected and is clean and in good condition.

Service call the Air Conditioner was not working. Arrived onsite and spoke with the Homeowner about issue. Found that the system was not running and the Thermostat was completely blank. Proceeded to the Air Handler to diagnose. Found the Wet Switch had been tripped which cut power to the system and shut it down. After speaking with the Homeowner in more detail was informed that the Basement has been experiencing water damage and leakage, and it is originating in the room with the Air Handler. If the Floor became damp it would trip the Wet Switch. Tested operation of system. Cleaned Drain Line and Condensation Pump. Checked Refrigerant Charge to ensure that their was no issue with Refrigerant that could have caused the Indoor Coil to freeze up and leak. Refrigerant numbers were to standards. Placed Wet Switch on a Paper Towel to help it from tripping if the Basement Floor became damp again. Would also recommend the Installation of an EZ Trap onto the Drain Line. This Safety device will

Service call that the Air Conditioner was not working properly. Upon arrival, spoke with Homeowners about issue. Was informed that the system had Refrigeramt added last year. After running for a while, the system would begin to leak water from the Coil Area. System was turned off upon arrival. Removed Coil Cover and Inspected Indoor Coil. Changed the 16x25x1 Air Filter. Blew through Condensation Drain Pipe with C02 Cartridge to ensure it was draining properly. Turned System on to Cooling to diagnose. Temperature split was only measuring about 5 Degrees between Supply and Return Air Temperatures. Checked Refrigerant Pressures and determined the system was low on Refrigerant and was below the Freezing point on the Indoor Coil due to the lack of Refrigerant Charge. Added 3lbs of Refrigerant to system, charging by Superheat. Superheat dropped to the proper levels and the Temperature Split between Supply and Return Air increased to 16 Degrees. While testing the system, the Compressor del

Service Call that the Second Floor System was not Cooling. Upon arrival found system turned off and Indoor temperature on the Second Floor was at 82 Degrees. Put system in cooling to test operation. Measured temperature split between Supply and Return Air at 10 Degrees. After testing refrigerant levels, found system had very High Superheat and Low Subcooling numbers indicating that it was low on Refrigerant. Added 3 lbs of R-22 Refrigerant to system, charging by Superheat. Replaced both Air Filters on the system. Temperature split increased to 18 Degrees after the Refrigerant had been added, and the Indoor Temperature on the Second Floor lowered to 77 Degrees. Checked the Temperature Splits on the First Floor System which was reading at 20 Degrees. Replaced the Air Filter for the First Floor System, provided by Homeowner. System is 13 Years old and is a baseline quality system. Due to the age, and condition of system loosing Refrigerant, it is recommended to begin planning for replac

Was informed that the system was not keeping up during a high Heat/Humidity day when she was having many guests in the home. Was informed that the First Floor was not keeping up to temperature and they set the Thermostat to 60 Degrees. When through system and changed the Air Filter. Measured Refrigerant Charge and Supply/Return Temperatures of the system. Refrigerant levels were to standard. Washed Outdoor Unit with Water due to dirt buildup on the Condenser. Tested both the First Floor Zone and Second Floor Zones. The system is operating to standards. The Second Floor does not seem to get a lot of Air Flow out of the Registers. Duct work comes up from the Basement and into the Attic area to supply the Second Floor. Both zones are meeting their set points. Changed the Fan settings on both Thermo
