Andrew was about the best ... no the best technician that I’ve worked with. He was experienced, quick, explained things to me such that I could understand, provided great advice and on top of all that was truly a pleasant gentleman!
LBA did a great job tuning up and servicing my AC. I appreciate the quick response and good service.
Incredible!!! Got there early in the day, listened to what I knew already and had it fixed in 20 minutes after verifying what I had said.
Eli very quickly identified and resolved a wiring issue with my new thermostat that had been installed a couple of months ago. He explained the issue to me, described what he did to fix it, and provided other useful information about the thermostat. He was very conscientious in observing covid-19 precautions and procedures.
Nathaniel was friendly and thorough. Good work. We will ask for him again.
Upon arrival the customer informed me that their Lennox AC system wasnâ€™t operating properly and the temperature within the residence kept rising. After completing further investigations I could only determine that the outdoor coil was severely restricted with cottonseed and other dirt/debris. Prior to cleaning, I recorded a 42Â° indoor coil saturation temperature which was ideal but I found the high side pressures to be elevated due to the coil being severely restricted. I spoke with the customer about my discoveries and I recommended cleaning the coil at a minimum repair level due to the age and condition of the equipment. I also instructed the customer that we may have a slight shortage of refrigerant within the circuit but I would need to clean the coil before I could accurately judge the refrigerant levels. The customer agreed and chose the bandaid level HK3A heat transfer media system rejuvenation option. After cleaning the outdoor coil I found the refrigerant operating pressure
Filled in sump pump drain line in front of house with dirt/gravel and mulch. Took out holly bush for drain line to be properly installed. Hydrocemented hole in front of house for drain line as well.
E461 & E464 on mini split Upon arrival the customer informed me that their Lennox AC system wasnâ€™t operating. After further investigations I discovered that the high pressure safety switch was open. After resetting the HPSS, the compressor operated but the OFM did not. I then discovered that the VEC had failed entirely. I spoke with the customer about my discoveries and presented repair options. The customer chose the bandaid level HN5A voltage enhancement system rejuvenation option. Work included removal and replacement of the VEC and performance and safety testing. After completing the repair I discovered that this unit was also low on R22 refrigerant. I recorded a 12Â° temperature difference across the indoor coil and I could hear the refrigerant boiling off prior to making it to the TXV. Due to the age and condition of the existing equipment and the cost of the appropriate repairs, I highly recommend replacing the equipment versus investing the money into repairs. The customer
Upon arrival the customers kitchen faucet was leaking form the bottom and top of the faucet. The shut offs underneath the kitchen sink wouldnâ€™t turn off as well. Customer also wanted to change out the corroded bathroom faucet and handles that didnâ€™t turn good. I had to supply the kitchen and bathroom faucets for the customer and installed both of them. I checked for leaks and everything tested good.
Perform maintenance inspection on a Ruud a/c. Checked all the electrical components and refrigerant for proper pressures and temperatures. Air filter was clean at this time. Check temperature split and washed outdoor condenser coil. Air conditioner is currently operating under manufacture specs.
Completed an air conditioner tuneup and safety inspection air conditioners operating a performance of manufacture specification based on refrigerant levels, compressor and fan motor running amps. Performed a safety inspection, all high-voltage and low-voltage wiring stable and secure at ports. 240 V properly supplying air conditioner. all low-voltage wiring communicating properly. Condensation drain draining properly. Filter to indoor unit was dirty, advise customer not to put filter back in. Customer says they will have a filter come in a couple days.
I preformed quoted work today for the customer. First in the downstairs in the unfinished part of the basement I changed out the toilet and replaced it with a new elongated gerber toilet with a new water stop and braided supply line. In the finish part of the basement there are two rooms that both have toilets in. I rebuild the inside of each toilet. Upstairs in the kitchen I replaced the old dishwasher water stop with a new quarter turn angle stop. In the master bathroom I replaced the flapper in the toilet and in the jacuzzi I also replaced the old hot and cold cartridges with new ones. There is a bathroom in the hallway that I also did a tank rebuild on. Last I replaced the old broken hydrant on the right side of the house with a new frost free quarter turn hydrant everything tested good.
Performed maintenance inspection on a Lennox air conditioner. Checked all the electrical components and refrigerant for proper pressures and temperatures. Filter was clean at this time. Washed outdoor condenser coil. Air conditioner is currently operating under manufacture specs.
Upon arrival I performed a whole house plumbing inspection.I checked natural gas system with a leak detector. No leaks detected. I checked water pressure and pressure was elevated 95 psi. Pressure shouldnâ€™t be above 80. I recommend pressure reducing valve to be installed. House does not have one at this time. Customer declined pressure reducing valve at this time. Water heaters one year old. Light on battery back up for sump pump is on stating that Battery is bad.I checked all other plumbing fixtures all in good working order.I also talk to customer about water quality and left brochures.
Checked all operations in the cooling mode. Customer takes care of furnace filter. Checked all electrical and refrigeration components outside. Washed out the outdoor unit. Air conditioner is now operating within factory specifications.
Upon arrival found that the unit was extensively dirty. Performed an extensive coil cleaning on the outdoor unit and checked all operations. Found that the system was low on refrigerant at this time and found that there was a failed compression fitting outside. Tightened compression fitting and system is now not leaking outdoors at this time. Recharged the system backed up to factory specifications installed a performance enhancement system and a leak sealer at this time. All upon customers request. Air conditioner is now cooling properly at this time.
Upon arrival In the master bathroom the faucet on the on the right was leaking water on the hot side in the handle. Also the toilet in the downstairs basement has a cracked tank and leaking on the floor. While I was in my truck putting pricing together the customer called the warranty people she is with and wanted to go with the work they are going to do. Customer didnâ€™t want pricing or a quote to on repairs. The house is 1 year old. Collecting trip charge today.
Upon arrival customer took me too the upstairs south bedroom with bathroom where the shower is running slow. Then she took me to the north bedroom with attached bath where the toilet is constantly running. I showed customer options to clean drain in the shower. She chose the Band-Aid option with a 30 day warranty. And then I showed her options to repair toilet. She chose the Band-Aid repair with a 30 day warranty. I replaced fill valve and checked for leaks and operation.I ran an Auger through P-trap on shower drain and pull back a large amount of hair. I also treated drain with bio one. I ran water and checked operation shower drain draining normally .
Performed an air conditioner tuneup and safety inspection. Air conditioner compressor motor and fan motor running amps from the manufacture is no longer visible on the plaque. Canâ€™t say if theyâ€™re reading within manufacture specifications. Refrigerant levels and indoor temperature difference are up to manufacture specifications based off refrigerant. Indoor coil and air flow no longer matching ideal readings. Indoor temperature difference 18Â°. Performed a safety inspection, 240 V disconnect is hanging off of wall. No longer safe because it comes off. I set it back In place. Would recommend replacing with new set up or at anytime. All low-voltage wiring stable and secure. Due to the age of the unit any minor or major components may fail at any time.
Discussed Navien operation with customer.
