Isaac was very good, he explained everything, answered any questions I had.
Thoroughly checked my 5 ton system for the summer and suggested some needed upgrades to make my system more efficient.
Brandon was very knowledgable and professional.
Preformed fall service on heat pump system took the top off and washed condenser checked capacitor it read 67/4.6 of 70/5 blower wheel and amps where good when I went to check aux heat I found w1 and aux heat wired to run together explained how it is suppose to work to customer and customer exspressed that the energy bill where the to high and was more concerned with master bed room being to hot in the summer and too hot in the winter I explained how static pressure works and that all his runs where strait and recommend having an air balancing done on the home and customer said that come spring we can address the air issue. The system is functioning correctly at this time.
Preformed fall service on 3 ton 80% furnace changed filter,cleaned flame sensor ,ighter read 49 which is within manufacturer spec the induce draft motor capacitor was 4.0 of 4.0 uf lower wheel and evaporator where clean customer changes the filters every thirty days like clock work ðŸ˜ðŸ˜while in the attic I calculated the return to be undersized for the system installed which will lead to longer running times and unnecessary strain on the entire system heating and cooling modes recommend upsizing to a twenty inch duct this undersized duct is also the reason the filter is warped when you go to change it the blower is trying to bring back correct air but can not due to undersized diameter causing system to strain and suck harder to try to achieve correct return. Ran system through cycle the duct runs are also all just laying on the rafters cause an air flow restriction lowering the capacity of the system. The system is operating g correctly at this time system has a surge protector in

I arrived for a non member no cool call. I first inspected the indoor system and found the main drain line to be clean and free of any debris. I then inspected the drain safety switch and found it to be completely clogged up with algae and other debris. I also found the furnace to be leaning forward causing water to drain into the drain safety witch and not allowing the water to drain back out of the switch. This is holding water into the switch allowing the algae to grow and keep the system from running. I made this aware to the homeowner and we decided to install a pan treatment to the to help keep algae from growing in the drain pan. We also decided to clean the main drain line to clear out any debris in this line. I blew out the main drain with a water hose and nitrogen. I then reinstalled the drain line and slightly picked the safety switch to where it will allow water to drain out of the system when needed but it will not shut off when the system is in normal use. To fix this iss

Came out to call. Customer stated we were out close to a month ago for a no cool call, and now itâ€™s not working again. I checked system over and found the lennox condenser tripped on high limit. I reset the switch and the system came on, however, the fan motor was slow to start up and I had to spin it with a screw driver to get it going. I discussed with customer about what I found. The capacitor is good, but the fan motor is going out. I went over pricing with customer about repair. Seeing we were out not too long ago, I waved the diagnostic and just charged for the repair. I replaced the condenser motor and added the 7.5 capacitor needed to run it. Wired in all connections to capacitor and contactor. Fastened all screws and wiring. Cleaned condenser coil thoroughly. Cycled system on and checked amps, temperatures and pressures of condenser. System is now cooling properly.
Came out to call. Customer said AC wasnâ€™t blowing cool air, but was running. She had it shut off when I got there. I had customer turn it on so I could see what was going on. After I let system run for a few minutes I checked refrigerant pressures and found system low on refrigerant. Seeing that the system is 14 years old and uses R-22 refrigerant, I went over options with customer. Discussed repair vs replace with customer. I performed a complimentary leak search on the major components to see if I could find any obvious leaks. I used my leak detector and found a significant leak on the suction side king valve, and another in the evaporator coil. Discussed what I found with customer. She wants me to go ahead and charge the system with refrigerant and also different options for replacing the system. There are no guarantees on the 2.1lbs of R-22 refrigerant added to system. AC is cooling properly at this time.
Arrived to no cool service call and performed system evaluation. Found clogged drain line. Blew out drain line and cleaned up water. Customer has had problems with drain in past. Due to way house is constructed and way drain is run I suggest that system be blown out every summer club service. System is cooling at this time made note for drain cleaning every spring service.
Blue shield protection AC service. Asked about filters and they were recently changed. Asked about hot and cold spots and the East side of home struggles to keep up. Washed condenser, checked dual capacitor, contactor and compressor. Cycled system on and checked refrigerant pressures and cycled heat pump in heat mode. Checked ductwork upstairs, and system is low on return air. Recommend increasing 14 and 16â€ ducts to 18 and 20â€ to give system enough airflow. Checked blower capacitor, blower, evap coil and drain line. Drain line is long and tested with 3 gallons of water and flushed with nitrogen to ensure it is clear. Checked refrigerant pressures and outdoor delta t once more. System is operating great at this time. Also spoke with customer about our UVV lamps and polarized air cleaners and duct cleaning services.
Asked customer about filter and replaced 20x30 pleated filters with blue SPP. Asked about furnace access, and used 8 ft ladder to gain access in kitchen. Checked blower, amp draws. Checked evap coil, condensate line and float switch / drain pan. Condensate line is impossible to check last joint on, so ran system with 4 gallons of water to ensure it is in fact draining properly. Drain pan shows rust signs of previous condensate overflow. Checked level of evap coil, and made sure slope went towards main drain out. Checked surge protector previously installed and it is functional still. Checked ductwork and suystem looks to be low on return air, recommend increasing 16â€ flex duct to 20â€. Asked about surge protector recommendation from last time for condenser and hot water tank. Customer will have hwt drained with fall tune up. Washed condenser thoroughly, checked dual capacitor. Cycled system in and checked amp draws, contactor,fan, compressor and volts. Fan amps are running a bit hig
Perform non club tuneup to both systems. Washed condensers. Customer changes filters regularly. Blower and evaporator are clean. Drains are clear. Test all capacitors and motor amp draw. Test compressor amp draw. Refrigerant levels are in range for current temperatures. Both systems are cooling at this time. Found downstairs system to be a 4 ton system running at 880cfm of return. System this size requires 1600 cfm of air. Suggest adding another 16 duct return to system. Upstairs system also short on return air but customer does not use this system much and customer will consider work to upstairs unit. Gave duct price to downstairs unit. Both systems are cooling at this time.
Customer has trailer unit and trailer water heater. Took pictures and measurements will get pricing and availability thru a few vendors for equipment and follow up with customer.
