Hottest day of the year and my air conditioner goes out! Isaac pinpointed the electrical problem within minutes and fixed it immediately. I mentioned a possible problem with my ductwork, he went under the house, and sure enough, found a hole where all of my air was leaking! He patched the hole and we discussed a more permanent solution in the future. This is the coolest my house has been in 2 years!! Thanks Isaac!!!
Guys came to do a routine check up of my air conditioner, and found an unexpected problem. They were honest and did their best to remedy the problem without trying to sell me a bunch of stuff I didn't need.
Blue shield plan summer AC service. Spoke with customer about home temp, thermostat, filters, etc. everything has been working great. Changed filters included with blue SPP, washed condenser and removed trees growing in the bottom of it. Checked dual capacitor, contactor, blower, Evan coil and drain. Evan coil had some residue that I flushed out going to drain. Cycled system on and checked amps, refrigerant pressures and delta t. System working well at this time.
Came out to call. Customer stated that the system upstairs was doing the same thing. Emergency pan was full of water again and shut the system off. I checked the drain and it wasnâ€™t holding water. I went ahead and added a jones valve and put nitrogen through the line and could hear it clear downstairs. Heard some gurgling in the main drain downstairs below the return. Told customer it may be the main backing up and causing the drain to not drain properly and spill over into the drain pan. I adjusted the fall of the coil a bit more too, to ensure system has enough fall to drain properly. Vacuumed out drain pan and cycled system on. AC is working properly, and thermostat dropped a couple degrees before I left. Told customer this call is on me since I was out not too long ago for the same issue. But I did recommend customer have maintenance drain checked.
Came to perform a preventative maintenance on system but also check the system out because it isnâ€™t cooling properly. Customer stated that the system wasnâ€™t coming on outside, but the fan was blowing inside. I checked system over and found the outside system not getting proper 24 volts. Went to the indoor system and found the y leg had come off the control board and wasnâ€™t allowing the AC to come on. I rewired the y leg back into the control board and cycled ac on. Changed filter for customer. Cleaned condenser coil thoroughly. System seemed to be a little louder than normal according to customer. I checked fan motor, compressor, capacitor, contactor and coil. Capacitor is depleted and system was solely running off the hard start kit. Discussed with customer about repair needed and pricing. Customer approved replacement of capacitor. I replaced the capacitor and cycled system on again. Checked amps, temperatures and pressures of condenser. System is now cooling properly within ma
Arrived for blue club member AC tune up. Changed the filters and washed the condenser. Checked the blower motor amp draw which is in range and the blower wheel is clean. Outside at the condenser the capacitor, contactor, fan motor, and compressor all check out good. Only issue outside was the refrigerant charge. One pound of r22 was added to get the units superheat in range from 26 degrees to 13. Unit is a 2014 manufactured unit that is R22. If refrigerant is needed again a leak check is recommended to evaluate the cost of fixing vs replacing. Overall the unit is working properly and cooling the house well.
Came out to call. Customer stated that the upstairs system shut off and wouldnâ€™t come back on. She checked the system upstairs and found the emergency drain pan full of water. I told customer I would clean out the drain, clear out water in emergency drain pan, and check system over. I cleaned out drain pan, then cleared the drain. Pulled a vacuum on drain to ensure there is no blockage. Put drain back together and tested system. System is operating and cooling properly.
Arrived to no heat service call and performed system evaluation. Found unit not coming on due to no signal back to furnace from thermostat. Found varmint had chewed thru control wires leading to float switch. Replace wiring and tested unit. All amp draws in range. Blower and evaporator are clean. Motor amp draw in range. Temperature rise in range. Cycled unit multiple times to insure that all safeties are working and unit running as designed. System is heating at this time. Customer lives in rural area and spoke with homeowner he will install poison traps in attic.
Blue shield fall tune up on air handler and air conditioner heating system. Changed filters included with blue plan. Cleaned out blower cavity, checked electrical, checked thermostat operation. Customer had purchased a new thermostat and had me install it. Tested and verified proper thermostat operation in heating cooling and fan stages. Measured delta t. System is operating well for the winter season.
Performed preventative maintenance on Heat Pump System. Changed out filter for customer. Inspected the blower assembly, blower motor, electrical components, heating elements, wiring, and overall condition of air handler. Cycled emergency heat and checked operation of heating elements, amps and temperatures. Cycled heat pump and checked amps, temperatures and pressures of condenser. System is operating properly within manufactured specifications at this time. Customer is not interested in ordering filters or UV bulb replacements at this time. Went over duct cleaning estimate as well. Overall system is still in good shape.
Blue shield fall furnace tune up. Customer as not had any issues with system since spring AC visit last May. Changed filters included with shield plan. Checked flue and drain line. Cleaned flame sensor and inspected burner crossovers. Cycled system on and checked electrical and gas pressure, replacing gas caps. Read temperature split and delta t. System is operating well at this time!
Came out to call. Customer stated that the upstairs system was freezing up and wasnâ€™t cooling properly last week. They changed the filters Thursday to see if that would change it, and it started freezing up again on Friday. I cycled upstairs unit and checked operations. System was functioning properly, but I noticed my suction pressure and temperatures were dropping after about 15-20 minutes of run time. I started checking line temperatures in different places and found that the liquid line drier in attic was reading 85.8 on one side and 83.4 on the other and kept fluctuating a degree or so. I discussed with customer about what I found and recommended. Iâ€™m coming back tomorrow to change out the filter drier and recheck system operations. Came back out to call to change out filter drier. I pumped down the AC system. Took out the old filter drier, and brazed in new drier on existing lineset. Checked welds, then pressure tested lineset and coil using nitrogen. After the positive pres
Came out and checked under home where crossover duct had been tied in. On one side the start collar only protrudes 2â€ and the zip ties were not enough to hold it in place. Resealed duct in place in BOTH sides with duct on start collar, duct tape, zip tie and screws to ensure a solid hold that will not come loose. Checked fpm in supply vent and airflow is back to normal!
Replace supply junction and seal ductwork
Silver AC pm, summer rain storm during pm. Asked about micro power guard filters and UVV UVC lamps and customer wants to wait for a special deal or fall to have them replaced. Asked about hot and cold spots and customer said master bedroom struggles in the mornings, I showed them how the dampered louvres work to help with airflow. Washed heat pump and checked both capacitors. Checked blower and evap coil and both could use a cleaning in place, system could also use a duct cleaning. Foam front panel on return plenum had come loose, and taped it back in place with foil tape. Checked volt drop and and amps, and tested system in cooling and heating. System operating well at this time.
Blue SPP AC tune up. Asked about filters and customer has a hard time getting the necessary 18x30 and 18x20 filters. Will cut 20x20 and 20x30 to size for customer. Filters were recently replaced. Customer also having issue with conditioned air coming from base of mobile home. From previous no cool call, customer is aware that some is coming from patched return. Checked and confirmed that rest is coming from loose joints at the boot openings by the vents and the end caps. Will leave estimate to have work done to seal off ducts and clean ducts with shop vac while sealing. Wash condenser thoroughly, check dual cap. Checked blower and evap coil and drain line. Checked blower cap. Cycled system on and checked amp draws volts and refrigerant via delta t. System operating well at this time.
Perform blue shield protection plan furnace air conditioner maintenance. Changed all filters. Blower and evaporator are clean. Test all capacitors and motor amp draw. Test compressor amp draw. Washed condenser. All amp draw in range. Found unit slightly low on refrigerant with customer approval charged system with 14 oz of r22. System running as 18 subcool per charging chart. System is cooling at this time.
