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.
Came out to give estimate to install a system in a Shop on customers property. The shop is roughly 1500 sqft. Discussed doing a mini split and air handler combo. Told customer I would finalize the quote and email it to him after quoting it out through the supplier and finding out availability as well. PORTERG@PLDI.NET
I arrived for a previous customer no cool call. I first spoke with the homeowner and four that the mini split in the shop will run but it starts to freeze up and it is not keeping the building cool. I inspected the system and found the system to be running at -4 psi and with a 84 deg superheat. I made it aware to the homeowner that the system has a refrigerant leak and we need to preform a leak search with a possibility of repairing the leak. We decided to agree to the leak search and see what we can do to get the system running. I first pressure tested the system with nitrogen to 500 psi and used a electronic leak detector and soap bubbles to locate the leak. I found the line set to be a plunger and piston precharged line set. I found the 1/4 king valve piston and plunger to be leaking. I removed all nitrogen from the system disassembled the fittings. I found the king valve fitting to be a 1/4 flair fitting that seats with a rubber O ring. I had a rebuild kit to rebuild a low loss ref
03JUL2021 Jason B Arrived for service call, Spoke with dexter about issue he noticed that Ice was forming around lineset by condenser. Found idle pressures low at 105psi inspected indoor coil found it completely frozen. Will return tomorrow for leak check and charge up AC to get them cooling until we can repair or replace part thatâ€™s leaking.
04JUL2021 Jason B Arrived frozen system. Inspected coil and found that it is now completely thawed. Added 2lbs of 410A and signed Mr. Nelson up for a blue club membership. Attached pressure report and data plate from AC. System is running properly at this time.
Came out to call for a free second opinion. Customer stated that he had another company out to find out what was wrong with his system. They replaced the control board, the ECM motor and added refrigerant to the system. The system was still doing the same thing. The blower would ramp up to full speed then shut off. I checked dip switches according to the data plate and adjusted them based off the size of the unit. Cycled system on and the system ran without any issues. My pressures and temperatures stayed consistent for the time I was there, and the blower on the system never shut off intermittently. Told customer to operate it like he normally would and Iâ€™ll leave the ticket open. If he has any other issues, I will come out and call tech support to set system up correctly if needed.
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
