Very professional and polite
Completed maintenance on 3 split systems in the home. 2 newer systems are inverter / communicating, system 3 is traditional. Issues found: Drain pan on a/h 3 not installed correctly. No float switch on a/h Found capacitor on cond unit 3 weak 30 of 45 mfd Found growth in all 3 units airhandler. Homeowner purchased a 3 system maintenance program today. She has agreed to repairs and would like me to return 8am Wednesday morning ( 11/17/21 ). She will leave a check for balance that morning. Her handyman Howard will be at the home to let us in. We will need to build a quote for drain pan repair.
Trane unit #1 Upon arrival customer showed me and air handler in the garage that needed tuned up. Checked for proper amp and voltage. Cleared condensate line with nitrogen, vac and water. The evap coil is clean. The evap coil pan is rusted and falling apart. Went to the condenser and checked for proper amp and voltage. The contactor had some pitting to it and the capacitor was reading low. We also have a 14 degree split. Customer does donâ€™t want to throw money into a 25 year old system. Mention to customer we can come out tomorrow to give and estimate. She said she will call in the morning to schedule a time after she talks to her husband. Bryant unit #2 Upon arrival customer showed me a unit in the garage that needed to be tun d up. Checked for proper amp and voltage. The evap coil is clean. Cleared the drain with shop vac, nitrogen and water. Went to the outdoor condenser and checked for proper amp and voltage. The contactor is good. The 70/7.5 capacitor was reading low. Replaced
Upon arrival technician found capacitor had failed on compressor side, recommended replacement of capacitor client agreed. Technician measured refrigeration and sub cooling unit operating Within design parameters at this time.
Unit running upon arrival customer vaccumed out drain line. Owner said that itâ€™s an HOA issue so I did not perform any further drain clear out. If we get a call out again for drain issues we will have to clear it out and charge for it.
Customer ordered EAC pads. I am having them shipped directly to her home.
Performed routine maintenance on a ICP split system checked amps volts pressures coils caps drain line etc. replaced standard UV bulb. The system is running up to manufacturer specs. Customer is set for Friday 26th for estimate to replace upstarts system
Completed system tune up. Checked pressures, volts, amps and all electrical components. Checked evaporator coil and cleared drain line. Found supply plenum broken and leaking air in multiple points. Repaired all leaks and mastic closed. Found beginning stages of microbial growth in air handler. Recommended and installed pure air x germicidal uv system to kill and prevent growth. Left system in good working order.
Completed system tune up. Checked pressures, volts, amps and all electrical components. Checked evaporator coil. Found system low on r22. Added 5 lbs r22. Advised customer of options. Corey scheduled to come out on 1/29/21 to give estimate on system replacement. Left system in good working order.
Install 3.5 ton duct system. All new flex. All new mixing boxes. 3 returns cut in and add. 2 new supply grilles. 1 new return grille 24x24.New plenum in attic. Hang and mastic everything.
Uppon my arrival found the evaporator coil completely frozen. I started the defrost process and changed all filters. I added 8.2 pounds of r410a refrigerant out of jug #179. I also used leak stop to try and seal up the leak. Customer said that she has someone come out one a year and add refrigerant to the system but hasn't got it done in a few years. I got my delta T to 21.1Â°. I found a weak capacitor on the od fan motor ( it's a 7.5 mfd reading 5.78). I recommend we keep monitoring the refrigerant levels and replace the run capacitor for OD fan motor. I put together an estimate and loaded my pictures to service titan and cleared the drain line. I left the unit in good working condition. The customer use the 25$ off coupon.
Found supply plenum came off air handler in tight attic. There were no support straps on plenum box. I supported and seal supply box. I checked pressures and electrical components, good. Let System in good working order..
Performed pull and clean. Coil was extremely impacted. System passes pressure test and achieved proper vacuum. Released and performed start up procedure. System is working properly. Cleared the drain.
I rewired the germicidal UV light. The copper and drain is in front of the unit but you can take the pannel door off. It's not easy but doable and the service pannel is easily accessible. The coil is impacted with construction dust and needs to be pulled and cleaned. The unit was installed in March and they have been doing some remodeling inside. The customer said they have been changing the filter and shutting unit off while working. The evidence points in the other direction. I recommend we pull and clean the coil and order more replacement filters for the electronic air filter. Cycled and inspected equipment. Found all previous notes accurate. Need to schedule coil cleaning.
I found the start capacitor was weak, replaced. The system was 1lb low on R22, added. I hosed down condenser coil of pollen. They purchased a senior care . The system has wear and tear. The system doesnâ€™t have much life left.
I found the drain line was restricted. I vacuumed out with cleaner. I vacuumed the water out of the secondary pan (10 gallons). I checked pressures, good.
