Chris was thorough in inspection and quoted remedies
Luis diligently performed the tasks of the job very well and advised on some future issues. We feel good about being a member of DiBiase H&C. Thank You!
Our AC broke and we were not able to figure out what happened. I was recommended DiBiase by my general contractor. So I called them. Nicole was pleasant to talk to and explained their process clearly. Their technician Nathan came on time and fixed the issue and was courteous to talk to. We were happy with the results.
My wife and I have come to expect complete professionalism and reliability from the DiBiase team. They reach out proactively to schedule seasonal check-ups and show up on time. The technicians are always good people and know what they're doing. Our HVAC system is approaching 20 years old, so we have regular discussions about its limited life expectancy, but they do their best to keep it running as efficiently as possible.
Installation of new 75 Gallon Bradford White Atmospheric Water Heater. Turned main water supply off to the home and drained existing water heater. Disconnected Piping and Gas Line. Removed the Old Water Heater. Installed new Water Heater in Auxiliary Drain Pan. Adapted Hot and Cold Water Pipes and connected to Water Heater with a new Expansion Tank. Adapted Gas Piping to new Gas Valve. Leak tested gas piping at water heater with leak bubbles. Connected a new section of 4â€ Flue Pipe. Filled Water Heater and bled pipes of Air. Turned Pilot on and set Thermostat water temperature to â€œHotâ€ Setting. Inspected system to insure there were no leaks.
Brother did not want service.
Found oil furnace burner off on reset. Hit reset on burner and fired right up. Only thing that I found was the cad cell bracket had some movement were the cad cell could have moved by burner vibration enough to not see the flame. Re secured cad cell in bracket and burner continued to run the entire time I was on site.
Performed heating maintenance, cleaned burners and pilot burner. Inspected heat exchanger. Checked voltage, amperage and electrical connections. Started gas boiler, measured fuel pressures. Performed combustion test. Checked water pressure and adjusted.
Performed heating maintenance, drained boiler to proper level. Cleaned burners and pilot burner, inspected heat exchanger. Checked voltage, amperage and electrical connections. Started boiler, performed combustion test. Measured fuel pressures.
Performed heating maintenance, replaced standard air filter. Cleaned burners and flame sensor, inspected heat exchanger. Blew out condensate trap. Checked voltage, amperage and electrical connections. Started gas furnace, tested limit and safety switches, measured fuel pressures. Performed combustion test. Checked operation and temperature rise. Installed manual humidistat, wired. Started humidifier and checked operation ok.
Returned to site to inspect Registers after they had been insulated due to some signs of water on the Registers. Was informed that the two registers on the Second Floor had some condensation forming the other day during the hot weather. Put system in operation and tested. Measured Humidity levels and Air Flow at the Registers on the second and Third Floor. Humidity levels today were within normal range of 55-60 Degrees before and after the AC was running. The two Registers on the second Floor were not flush with the ceiling due to the ceiling beams above the drywall not allowing the Register clamps to close fully. This air gap could be allowing humidity and heat into the Register which caused the moisture. Sealed the Registers on the second Floor with silicone to eliminate the Air Gap.
Arrived onsite to perform Heating Tune Up on Gas Furnace. Homeowner had also noted that the AC was not running. Upon arrival found thermostat calling for Cooling and was set at 65 Degrees. The Indoor Temperature was at 72 Degrees. The system was not running. Tested system and found Control Board was not receiving 24 Volts from the Transformer. Tested Transformer and determined that it was failing and not sending proper Voltage. Installed a temporary Transformer to get system operating to further test. The Blower was not turning on due to the Capacitor failing. Installed a 10 Mfd Capacitor to allow system to run. System in cooling was only producing a 12-13 Degree Temperature Differential. Measured Refrigerant Charge and System is low on Charge. While testing the system the System shut down and the Control Board began sparking and shorted out. The Transformer failing may have caused damage to the relays/circuits on the Control Board and caused the Control to become damaged. System needs
Performed Quality Assurance On American Standard Gas Furnace. Reviewed issues with homeowner. Corrected issues and additional issues that came up during inspection. Completed Checklist Form in System.
Installed new 2 stage gas furnace with new thermostat re connected with metal between coil and furnace. Re connected exhaust and intake venting to furnace had to re route new gas was ran and tested for leaks none, condensate drained into old pump and was tested works ok. Also wired in for saftey. Gas pressures were set filters changed and combustion was analyzed. Everything is up to manufacture specs.
Performed oil furnace cleaning, check electrical low And high ok replace both filters, clean heat exchanger and flue pipe, also chimney base, replace nozzle 1.00x80A Nd RF-1 oil filter, also replace electrodes and adjust tips, check igniter and cad cell, igniter is little low, performed smoke test and combustion ok cycle heater ok
Returned to site to reinstall the MV-4 Registers that were taken down on the Second and a Third Floor Rooms. Inspected Insulation around Flex Duct Work in Ceiling. Reinstalled the two MV-4 Registers for the two rooms on the Second Floor. The Registers for the Third Floor were broken and could not be reused. Installed MV-3 Registers for the two rooms on the Third Floor. All insulation was tight and packed in around the Flex Duct Work. Please note, Due to the location of certain Registers, the front facing â€œWing Nutâ€ Screw could be tightened due to the ceiling beams. All other screws were tightened and the Registers are secure.
Fill with insulation all 7 supply register boots, currently flex is not all the way covering boot, we will add insulation around boot al the way down, 8-29-19 insulated supply registers covering all the way to the register plastic, could not put back together 4 registers, due to registers not in place, two of the registers are in good shape but other two are broken and missing clips, once sheet rock is repaired registers can go up it place, quoted for two new registers and put on the other two registers in place, customer will call office when sheet rock is repaired and ready for us to installed registers,
Responded to burning smell, upon arrival found unit off, check outdoor unit electrical, start and test unit compressor would not start, found smell coming from capacitor and hard start assist, found burnt relay on hard start assist and open capacitor, quoted for repair, customer ok installed both parts and test ac operation ok performed ac check up during visit, flushed drain ok filter 20x20x1 ok noticed bacteria inside air handler, odors traveling through ductwork, check split ok, unit does not have ez trap and wet switch inside secondary pan, informed customer, check outdoor unit refrigerant pressures and electrical ok cap and contactor ok cycle unit ok unit is 20 years old, working very hard customer sign up to ac service plan
Check flex duct runs, to second floor and third floor, pull one supply from second floor, took pictures, flex is not all the way down to register boot, air is condensing before it gets to living space, would recommend Trying to fill the gaps that are not insulated, also noticed runs run on exterior walls, and seems like is not well insulated, quoted to add insulation on supply boots To prevent hot air meeting cold air before it get to living space, customer will call the office
