Customer was concerned about poor service 6 months ago. Tech assured customer that I did a full tune up today. Inspected and cleaned every component. System is R22 and propane and is 15 years old. Tech let customer know that systems tend to last 15 to 20 years on average. System is heating and cooling correctly now, but major component failure is possible due to age. Heat exchanger and burners are good. Cleaned burners and flame rod. Dual capacitor checked good. Amp draws and R22 pressures are normal. Tech found 14” return line poorly spliced in crawlspace. It also makes an unnecessary bend to meet the other side of return boot. Customer reports back area living room and kitchen area stays warm. There are plenty of registers in the area (4), but both returns are in the hallway. If package unit needs to be replaced in the future, tech recommends replacing duct system as well, moving one return to the back of house and making sure branches are a short and straight as possible.
