Great service good people and thorough check of system before winter.
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.
Jake K. I arrived for a new customer new system bid X2. I spoke with the homeowner and found that they are wanting a 4 ton and a 2 ton system installed. We went through the building and discussed where the system can go and pass code and what will need to be done to get the system running to the best of their abilities with what limited space is available to install the system and the duct work. The systems will be installed in the upflow position and the owners are responsible for building the base for the system to be set on. We will set the outdoor systems and run the line set but the owners are responsible for installing the disconnect and whip to both condensers. Depending on of the owners want the air handlers to have heat they will have to purchase the heat strips and run the proper power to both indoor systems vs if they want the system to run as a straight ac with no back up heat or a heatpump installed. The systems will have a 10 year parts warranty if it is registered as the
Silver club heating maintenance. Joe(JC)Ritchal. 11/03/2023 Performed full system evaluation and safety inspection. I arrived from the customers annual fall service. The customer didn’t have any questions for me so I went ahead and got started with the maintenance. The system is operating correctly and I didn’t see any issues. I also washed out the reusable filters for the customer.
20SEP2023 Jason Brown Arrived for blue summer tune up service. Spoke with homeowner about his systems performance. It’s working well. No issues or anything to put a magnifying glass on. Setup ladder in kitchen and inspected the furnace. Blower, wheel,HSI, and board all good and working properly. Tightened low voltage connections. Evap coil is clean drain are connected with proper fall. Float switch operating normally. Return ductwork is undersized but connections are secure and not leaking air. I would also like to see a couple more straps across it. Supply ductwork is good, taps come off the end of the plenum, but otherwise connected and strapped reasonably. Wshe’s condenser coils and checked contactor and capacitors. Hermetic cap is on a turbo adjusted cap connections to dial in cap to 40mfd. Fan capacitor reading 6.8/7.5 and very close to being out of tolerance. Amps and all good and still within manufacture specs. Pressures good. System is cooling to the best of its abilities at th
Blue shield club cooling maintenance. Joe(JC)Ritchal. 03/03/2023 Performed full system evaluation and safety inspection. Arrived to perform because Summers annual summer service. The customer didn’t have any questions for me so I went ahead and checked the thermostat then washed out condenser. The condenser was pretty dirty so I pulled it apart to wash it out. I then Checked The air handler and drain pan and drain line. Evaporator coil was in good shape. The drain line and drain pan were both clear. I the checked the condenser which was in good shape. The refrigerant charge was good and the compressor and condenser fan were both in good shape. The contactor was good but the fan side of capacitor had gotten weak. I got the go ahead from the customer to replace the capacitor. After I replaced the capacitor a double checked the various components of the system and they were both in good shape.
I arrived for a club member thermostat going blank issue. I spoke with the homeowner and found that the thermostat first went blank and the system stopped cooling and the temperature in the house went up. I also found out that they had put batteries in the thermostat that has a C wire for it to run off the power of the system. I then inspected the system and found that this system has a drain safety switch and is stopping the 24V power that is running the low voltage side of the system. The drain line is stopped up and causing the system to loose power and shut the system off. This is a safety feature that prevents the system from continuing to run and have water overflow into the sheet rock and damage the ceiling. I found the safety switch to be full of water and the main drain line to be full of water. I cut the drain line and installed a Jones valve and used dry nitrogen to blow out the clogged drain line and what water the system was holding. This drain line is about 30-40’ long an

Contactor, capacitors, and electrical connections in good condition. Brushed out cobwebs and dust from electrical cabinet. Tightened lugs at disconnect and washed out condenser coils. Reassembled equipment and checked amps and pressures. All amps good, pressures came back slightly low. System is reading 2-3 of 10 degrees subcooling. Recommend adding refrigerant to maximize systems performance. I also notice the attic fans are disconnected. Recommend rewiring them. Buttoned up equipment and spoke with homeowner. Homeowner asked me to email over recommendations. Attached are all estimates. System is working properly at this time.
13JUN2023 Jason Brown Arrived for install warranty call. Spoke with homeowner about the systems performance. It’s working fine, however I’ve noticed at lot of water around the condenser I’ve not see it freezing but it’s just concerning how much water is coming off of the unit. Inspected AC, filters, temperature and airflow. Found the system working properly, however with outdoor and indoor temps this low pressures will reflect that. Homeowner stated that it sweat more over the weekend jun10-11. Documented pressures over run time. No issues found.

Sam J - arrived to Blue club member for spring tuneup on a horizontally, mounted furnace in the attic. Customer does not have any complaints, system is one year old. I left replacement filters as he just changed his and he also turned the thermostat on for me. Began by turning off and rinsing the condenser coil outside and attaching my pressure gauges and temperature, probes for recording superheat and sub cooling values which I have recorded in the report. Checked the capacitor, then re-powered the condensing unit. Moved into the attic while allowing the condenser to dry and checked, the blower amperage the coil, cleanliness and the duct connections. Drain line was clear and float switch was operating properly. Move back to the condensing unit and recorded the amperages on start up and during run time for the compressor and fan motor. Assembled the machine and clean the area. Spoke with homeowner and advised him on the status of the system, no issues to report. System
Sam J - arrived to Blue club member for fall tune up on horizontal furnace in attic. Spoke with customer and he explained that the system has been operating properly with no issues of cold spots in the home. He has recently become owner of the property due to a passing in the family and this was our first interaction together. Replaced filter media 20X30X1 and then began servicing equipment. Cycled thermostat off and began servicing system. Removed coil cover to inspect heat exchanger and coil. Coil is clean but does show signs of rust, only on end plates, tubing and coil still free of rust. Heat exchanger is free of any cracks or rust. Checked capacitor on inducer motor and it’s within mfd range. Cycled system on from thermostat and watched for proper ignition. Then I checked amperage of inducer motor, then blower motor as system went through its sequence of operation. Ducts connected and insulated well, return clean of any trash or debris. Attic insulation is good for the
Dryer vent attic discharge (20 ft). Customer wanted dryer vent cleaning done, she said her dryer works great but wanted a cleaning. After inspection in attic and laundry room, I continued with cleaning, after cleaning was completed, I went onto roof and cleaned off any lint that was stuck to discharge on roof. Went back and cleaned up any lint messes made by tech with shot vac and disinfectant wipes. Put back dryer just the way it was and tested dryer to see if it is drying properly before completing job.

I arrived for a new customer system replacement opportunity. I spoke with the wife and found that they had a list of everything they were concerned about. One of those items was some of the duct work had become I strapped and hanging in the attic. The husband was on a conference call and I did not want to pressure him. On that time with inspected the indoor and outdoor system and gained all the information I needed from the systems. The husband was still in him meeting so I started to replace all the broken strap that was supposed to be holding the duct in place. I removed all the old strap and ran new strap on about 1/3 of all the duct work. The only strap that was broken was in areas that the insulation had been disturbed and I assume it was from previous people removing the strap when they made their way across the attic. The old strap was pretty brittle tho I did not have enough strap to replace all the strap that was holding the duct work. At this time all of the duct work is stra
