Issac is awesome, great work, great guy
Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable.
Arrived at the home to provide a blue shield club maintenance. Was greeted at the door by the customer and I was shown where the Air Handler and Heat Pump were located. The customer has been running the heater and it seemed to be working properly. Air Handler- while checking the air handler I looked at blower motor for proper operation, amps, and voltage. Checked all safeties, checked both heating elements for proper amps and operation, checked all electrical connections, evaporator coil for cleanliness. Air Handler is working properly at this time. Heat Pump- checked all aspects of the heat pump. Checked electrical connections, capacitor 45/5, condenser fan motor amps, compressor amps, reversing valve, defrost board, and ensured back up heat was on during the defrost cycle, also checked condenser coil for cleanliness. Overall system is running great with no repairs needed at this time.
Arrived at the home to provide silver club maintenance for the customers. Was greeted by the customer at the front door where he showed me the air handlers and thermostat. Customers have been using heat without issues. While doing maintenance I checked all aspects on both Air Handlers. Checked operations of heating elements, blower motors, sequencers, electrical connections, evaporator coils for cleanliness, blower wheel for cleanliness, checked safeties, both air handlers are working properly. Checked both heat pumps for proper operation as well. Checked compressor amps, condenser fan motors for proper amps, checked capacitors for proper rating and ranges, checked coils for cleanliness. Also checked both reversing valve’s defrost timer’s, electrical connections. Both heat pumps are working properly. Did find one system with the blower motor run capacitor reading weak and out of range. Customer said that he would replace the run capacitor himself. Other than the run capacitor no
Arrived at the home to preform a blue shield club maintenance on a 2015 carrier furnace. Was greeted at the door by the customer where he showed me where the furnace and thermostat were. Customer stated they had used the heater some this year and to their knowledge it has seemed to work well. While preforming the heater maintenance I checked all aspects of the heating system. Checked blower motor and induce draft motor for proper volts and amps. Checked all electrical connections, cleaned flame sensor, checked igniter for proper operation and ohms. Checked gas valve operation, also checked temperature rise, did carbon monoxide check, and also changed 3-10x20x1 filters. System is working properly at this time and no repairs needed at this time. Could not find any faults. Did mention to the customer about installing pan treatment for our spring visit.
Came out to install the UV light and fix issue with condensation line backing up. Put a p trap in for the condensation line as well for Airhandler to drain properly. Cycled system on and double checked operation of everything. System is cooling properly.
Came out to call for a mini split system leaking water onto his stairwell. Customer stated that he looked into it and found that it could be the drain line clogged. I checked the drain and found a hornets nest near the drain coming out of the wall. After I sprayed the nest, customer wanted the drain line vacuumed out. I cleared out drain line and tested drain to verify it was working properly. Customer stated he could hear the clog clear inside. Recommended that customer used diluted cleaning solution like bleach to help keep the drain clean. System is no longer leaking water inside home.
Performed preventative maintenance on AC systems. Changed filters inside the building. Inspected blower assemblies, motors, electrical components, drains, and overall condition of equipment. Cleared out drain on package unit, had a slow drain. Condenser coils are clean. Inspected compressors, fan motors, contactors, capacitors and operation of both systems. Checked thermostat operation, wiring, amps, temperatures and pressures of AC units. Both systems are cooling properly at this time. Newer unit is running off an older Honeywell analog thermostat, and was reading about 2 degrees off of what I had it set at, but it was cycling off and on correctly. Recommend a digital thermostat for more accurate temperature reading.
I arrived for a previous customer no cool call. I spoke with the homeowner and found that the outdoor system will not operate. I inspected the system and found that the fuses have failed. I replaced the fuses and found the system to come on. I did find the inrush amps to be pulling 43 amps and the fuse max amperage is 30. The system quickly drops to run about 13-15 amps and runs at that amp range. I also found the capacitor to be extremely weak but it was still operating. I recommended to rep the capacitor to prevent a breakdown in the future. I also recommended to install a compressor savor kit to help lower the inrush amps and the stress on the fuses and run capacitor. The homeowner only wanted to replace the fuses at this time. I expect to have this same problem or other problems with this system in the future if we do not replace the recommended components. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us and we will be happy to help you in anyway we possibly can.
Red shield summer service. Replaced filter. Blower motor run capacitor tested good, motor and wheel are clean, indoor coil is clean, condensate drain line is clear. Condenser coil is clean, compressor and condenser fan motor capacitors tested good. No contactor. Control board is operating normally. Checked operation, all amps and pressures are good, subcooling is 8.9, superheat is 14.1 degrees, air temperature drop is 20 degrees, system is operating normally.
Came out to call for a free second opinion. Customer stated that another company came out to service the unit and said that the refrigerant that the system uses is no longer available, and no companies have it. System uses R22 refrigerant, and while it is no longer being produced, it is still available. Discussed with customer about what the other company said and what was true about the statement. Unit is low on refrigerant, and system most likely has a leak in it. Went over the options customer had with them about repair vs replacement. Customer wanted to charge system for now and look into replacement at a later date. Made customer aware that I can’t guarantee how long the refrigerant will last. Customer wanted to move forward with charging the unit. I added 1.5lbs of R22 to get system back within range of a proper superheat of 10 degrees. Customer stated that he could already tell a difference in how the home feels while I was there. Recommended customer have system rechecked befor
Ray F. 6/21/2022. Arrived to blue member ac tune up and customer greeted me at the front door. I introduced myself and asked how her system was working. She stated it is working great. I then asked where the thermostat, air filters and hvac equipment was located. She informed me and I proceeded to inspect the evaporator coil and furnace components. Evaporator coil is clean, as is the blower motor, wheel and housing. Blower motor is balanced. Amp draw and capacitor ok. Wiring in good condition. Condensate drain line is clear. Inspected condenser. Found refrigerant charge ok. Contactor and capacitor ok. Compressor and condenser fan motor amps are ok. Disconnect and wiring in good condition. Recommend adding surge protection to system. Cleaned condenser coils. System cooling properly at this time. Thank you for your business.
Performed preventative maintenance on AC system. Customer changed the filters this month, so I left him some filters to use. Inspected the blower assembly, motor, electrical components, evaporator coil, drain and overall condition of equipment in utility room. Drain had a small condensation leak that I wiped up and then reapplied glue to. Washed condenser coil thoroughly. Inspected the condenser coil, compressor, capacitor, contactor, fan motor and operation. Checked thermostat operation, wiring, amps, temperatures and pressures of condenser. System is cooling properly within manufactured specifications at this time.
Came out to call to perform preventative maintenance on 2 systems. Customer stated the upstairs unit wasnâ€™t cooling at all and the outside ac wasnâ€™t on either, but the blower was blowing air. I checked system over and found the unit locked out from high pressure switch. I reset set the system and couldnâ€™t repeat the fault. System wasn't completely filthy, but I cleaned it thoroughly and the other condenser as well. Replaced customer supplied filters. Checked capacitor, contactor, compressor, fan motor, amps, temperatures and pressures of both units. Upstairs system is cooling properly now and downstairs unit was as well. Made customer aware of potential intermittent faults on upstairs unit and to keep an eye on the system, and give us a call if it acts up again.
