I arrived to bid a system for replacement. I first spoke with the homeowner and found that he already has other bids to replace the system. We inspected the system together and compared bids from the other companyâ€™s. His favorite bid was a Armstrong system 20 seer 10 year parts warranty for 12,680. I bid a 16.5 seer carrier system with the same 10 year labor warranty with a one year labor warranty and free first year maintenance plan to keep the system clean. I offered to install my carrier system for the same price as the arm strong with all my same guarantees and the homeowner wants to stay with the Armstrong 20 seer system.

Came out to call for master bedroom having a pretty significant temperature difference. When itâ€™s cold outside, customer stated that the room can be 6 degrees different from the rest of the home. Told customer that I would do a complimentary air balancing on the system and see if we can get it more comfortable. 2-15-2022 Isaac J. Came back out to do an air balancing. I added 3) 10â€ dampers, 1) 8â€ damper, and 1) 6â€ damper to the supply plenum. After the installation of the dampers, I went to each area of the home and checked airflow and adjust rooms according to customers use. After completing the air balance on the system. Customer could notice a significant difference in how the room felt to them. Told customer to have the system run like this till the next visit and if we need to do any more adjustments, we can do them at that time.
Came out to call for a system heating, but customer thinks that something is wrong. I checked the system over and found no issues with how the unit is operating. Customer stated that the far end of the home isnâ€™t getting as warm as her bedroom and bathroom. I explained to her that the unit and the thermostat are closer to the end of the home that stays the warmest. System may be satisfying temperature on the thermostat before it gets warm on the other end of the home. System is from the late 90â€™s as well as isnâ€™t in the best shape. The rewiring we did on the unit was to help get customer heat and itâ€™s working like it should. I recommended that the system be replaced due to age and condition.
