Called customer and gave verbal estimates to repair toilet . Customer declined . Collected service call fee
Upon arrival found p tac unit for driveway hut cycling off found sensor resting against coil moved out on bracket also found unit condensate backing up cleared float and installed condensate tablets.
I conducted a boiler inspection. The boiler failed the combustion test. The Carbon Monoxide reading is higher than normal. This is an indication that there is an obstruction either in the flue pipe or in the boiler heat exchanger that is causing the burnt gasses to not properly escape out of the boiler and into the flue pipe. I red tagged boiler and shut the power off to the system due to the safety risk. I quoted the customer $300 to further diagnose the high carbon monoxide. I would need to disassemble the boiler to find the obstruction. I also quoted the customer between $350-$1050 to clean the heat exchanger if that is the issue. Hypocrisy O2% - 5.3%...normal CO - 415ppm...should be 20-100 ppm Gas Pressure- 3.54â€ w.c....normal Flue draft- 0.05â€ w.c....normal Checked for gas leaks- found no gas leaks at this time. Return water temperature- 100 Supply water temperature- 120 Water temperature difference- 20...good Expansion tank- good Water pressure- 18 psi...good
Trane RTU system found not operating properly. Found the transformer at the unit had tripped due to a short in the heating circuit. Found the high temperature sensor with a loose connection on the terminal landing causing a short circuit. Connection has been fixed, transformer has been reset. Unit is operating properly at this time. Carrier RTU system also found not operating properly. Unit has a leak and causing the low pressure sensor to trip. A quote has been submitted for a leak search and to recharge the unit. Customer has decided to decline the repairs at this time. Services performed today are covered under warranty.
Left estimates for water heaters
I installed a 50 gallon electric water heater in the garage. Everything tested good.
Quoted a 50 electric water heater that we are going to install tomorrow morning 9:30 to 12:00

Upon arrival found right system of twinned system covering the convenience store out of refrigerant informed manager who wanted me to return 6/5/19 to do a leak search performed leak search and informed manager mariah that I found no leaks on the evaporator or the condenser and the system held a pressure test then replaced filter drier and recharged system found system not pulling proper vaccumm at 800 microns small leak in the lineset where it was inaccessible may still exist but system is operating properly at this time.
Customers daughter Works for a plumbing company and was unsure about her momâ€™s pressure in the house but also in the pressure in the shower downstairs and the downstairs toilet was acting funny after the granddaughter had use the toilet. The toilet is working fine at this time it mustâ€™ve been a soft clog that cleared itself. The pressure is sitting at 70 psi the max on the home should not be over 80 psi. The customer showerhead is putting out heavy pressure but itâ€™s the GPM that itâ€™s designed for but itâ€™s not a water saver shower head. I did tell the customer that she can replace the showerhead to reduce the flow but the showerhead currently is working properly.
Arrive to find unit freezing up due to low on refrigerant. Performed a leak search. Found a leak in the heat media transfer coil. Showed customer options. Recommend replacing outdoor unit due to having our 22 in it. Because EPA is phasing out the refrigerant by the end of the year. Customer denied having our design specialist out. Customer wanted to put refrigerant inside the system and see where it goes. Put refrigerant into system. Refrigerant will leak out again. Unit is operating within factory specifications at this time.
Arrived to installed new non-programable thermostat. Performed test to ensure thermostat was working properly. Unit is now operating a factory specifications at this time.
Arrive to find sand the fan running all the time. Switched up thermostat to see if the thermostat was bad. Perform safety testing to ensure that the system was operating properly. System is operating properly at this time.
Performed inspection of vacant suite 892 per Fred's request. I found that this suite has 3 units that serves this space. Discrepancies found notated below. Rtu-28 is a 5 ton carrier that is 25 years old. This unit was found disabled on heating and with a cracked heat exchanger. This unit was also found with a very low temperature split and appears to be low on charge. I will quote to diagnose and repair these issues and to also replace the unit due to its age and condition. Rtu-29 is a 5 ton Lennox that's 14 years old. It was found operating on heating and cooling was found non Operational due to a bad 10mfd capacitor for the condenser fan motor. If you spin the fan to help it get jump started the unit does run on cooling. Rtu-30 is a 3 ton carrier that is 16 years old. This unit was found shut down on heating with cracks in the heat exchanger so heating is non operational. Cooling was found operating properly with a good temperature split at this time. Due to supply houses closed t
