Adam, the AC Rep, was knowlegable, efficient, was finished in no time and left area clean!1
I arrived for a customer we recently installed a condenser and coil for. The issue now is the thermostat is flashing a code. We called and I arrived for a service call but the homeowner in not home and they did not answer their phone. I left a card on the door by the doorbell camera. I will be placing this call on pause for now. I spoke with the homeowner and found that the thermostat is flashing. I explained that when the thermostat flashes itâ€™s in a time delay and the system will still come on and run after the flashing stops.
I arrived to inspect a system for replacement. We will install a 14â€ wide system vs going back with a 17â€ wide system due to no clearance in the closet. We will install a new condenser pad and the electrical from the new disconnect to the new condenser. We will remove the old coil box that is on top of the current coil and raider the system to allow for a proper filter base. The homeowner will not be ready to install the system unit next month. There may be a price increase from month to month. I will be following up with the homeowner on September 1st.
Blue shield summer service. Blower motor capacitor is good, blower motor and wheel are clean. Condensate drain is clear. Washed condenser coil, dual run cap is good, contactor is good. Checked operation, found unit operating with low suction pressure, head pressure is good at 220 lbs at 85 deg, as per unit charging chart. Suction at 57 deg and 32 deg saturation temp. House is cooling. Suspect dirty indoor coil, could not visually inspect coil, coil needs to be removed.
Blue shield summer service, blower motor run capacitor is good, blower motor and wheel are clean, indoor coil is clean, condensate is clear. Washed condenser coil, dual run cap leaking oil, replaced capacitor, contactor is good. Checked operation, system operating normally.
Blue shield summer service, replaced filters, blower motor capacitor is good, blower motor and wheel are clean, indoor coil is clean, condensate drain pump operating normally. Washed condenser coil, compressor capacitor is good, condenser fan motor capacitor is good, contactor is good. Checked operation, system operating normally.
Upon arrival agree to the customer and they said that the unit wasnâ€™t working I went out to the condenser opened up the service panel and the condenser and the hard start kit that was just installed was blown up I checked the compressor at the compressor terminals and the numbers were bouncing all over the place from common to run there is jumping from 2.4 to 6.8 to 4.3 And then when I checked it again for the second time, and to start was doing the same thing they compressor is bad
On June 18 2021 I arrived to a new customer non member upon arrival I greeted the customer and then customer stated the unit sometimes doesnâ€™t come on I went to the condenser and checked the unit upon inspection I found a bad hard start kit I showed The customer and explain that the unit wonâ€™t start without the hard start kit just Merce go ahead and put a new one on I put it on did amp drawâ€™s compressors pull in 11.8 A the fan is pulling .8 A I also checked the capacitor it was a 35.5 reading 35.5 everything is working properly at this time thank you for your business Mike T
This is an estimate for a 3 1/2 Ton AC and Air handler system with ductwork. Customer chose the Carrier 16 Seer with the X-13 Airhandler. We will be replacing all equipment, lineset, emergency drain pan, plenums and redoing returns. We are to make the 14x24 returns into 14x30 returns and make the return ducts 16â€. We will also be adjusting the layout of the supply ducts. Existing duct work will be used, just adjusting tap sizes and adding a couple wyes to free up plenum space. Warranties: 10 year parts 10 year coils 10 year compressor 1 year labor
Gave customer estimate to replace entire system and return ductwork in the attic.
Arrived to not heating well service call to amana ptac unit in running order. Unit had fresh air damper open allowing extremely cold air to mix. Closed damper and showed customer how to operate damper. System is heating well at this time.
Performed preventative maintenance on both the condenser and the furnace. Started my maintenance with the furnace. Inspected the blower assembly, electrical components, wiring, heat exchanger, burners, flame sensor, ignitor, and overall condition of equipment in closet. Cycled heat on and checked amps, temperature rise and gas pressure. Tested pressure and safety switches. Heat exchanger has some wear and hot spots. Made homeowner aware of condition. Discussed with customer about replacing old analog thermostat with a digital one. Sheâ€™s interested but wants to wait at this time. I inspected the condenser coil, capacitor, contactor, compressor and fan motor. Capacitor is reading just outside of the 10% mark of the rating for the capacitor. Checked amps, temperatures and pressures of condenser. Both the furnace and the ac are operating properly at this time.
Arrived to no cool service call and performed system evaluation. Found bad dual capacitor. Spoke to customer. Replace capacitor. Installed capacitor and compressor runs but condenser fan cuts out. Informed customer motor would need replacing. Customer is elderly and husband recently passed away. Customer having a little financing trouble. Spoke with customer. Will take half of payment today and rest in 30 days. Installed new motor. Started system. Amp draw in range. Refrigerant levels appear to be pretty close to in range. Superheat slightly high but most likely cause by hot temperatures in house. System is cooling at this time. 1yr motor warranty.
I came out for an AC maintenance special. I washed the condenser coil. I checked the filters, blower, evap coil, capacitors, contactor and all wiring. The dual capacitor was below its recommended reading. I cycled the ac and checked all temps, amps and charge. The ac was also a bit undercharged. With approval I installed a new dual capacitor and added 2lbs of r410a, the first pound was free with the maintenance, and set the SC to the required 10. All working well.
Performed preventative maintenance on AC system. Changed filter for customer. Inspected the blower assembly, wiring, electrical components, coil, drain, and overall condition of equipment in closet area. Washed condenser coil thoroughly. Checked and tested thermostat operation, capacitor, contactor, compressor, fan motor, amps, temperatures and pressures of condenser.
Performed preventative maintenance on AC system. Customer will change the filter. I inspected the blower assembly, electrical components, wiring, evaporator coil, drain and overall condition of equipment in garage closet. I washed condenser coil thoroughly. Checked and tested thermostat operation, wiring, capacitor, contactor, compressor, fan motor, amps, temperatures and pressures of condenser. Capacitor is leaking, and slightly out of 10% tolerance. Discussed with customer about repair needed. Customer wants to wait on repair. System is cooling properly at this time.
