Came out to investigate thumping and grinding noises. I was unable to locate any thumping sounds. From customerâ€™s description, it sounds like duct work expansion, which is normal, but can be controlled. Weâ€™d have to come back if it continues. The grinding noise was identified as the blower motor. The bearings make a very loud grind when it initially starts and it continues through the heat cycle. Average life of system is 12-15 years. Unit is currently 16 years of age. Due to age, condition, and repair costs, I recommended a second opinion. Failure is expected. Dan Fox will be in touch this afternoon to discuss options.
Removed and cleaned and reinstalled flame sensor Removed and cleaned and reinstalled gas burners Checked gas outlet pressure Checked igniter Checked filter Inspected and tested inducer motor and blower motor Checked your condensate drain trap Furnace working well at this time. Please renew tuneups to maintain your warranty
Replace geothermal unit. Disconnected all electrical connections, loop field connections and drain connections. Disconnected from ductwork and removed unit. Installed new geothermal unit. Reconnected to existing ductwork, drain and electrical connections. Installed electric back up heat. Installed new washable filter. Connected loop field and purged air from unit and loop field. Ran and tested geo unit. All systems operating properly at this time. Thanks, Brennan, Scott
Performed the level 2 furnace cleaning. Heat exchanger is very worn. No cracks found at this time. Excessive air readings were high, indicating wear on the secondary heat exchanger. Average life of system is 12-15 years. Furnace is currently 20+ years old. Due to age and condition, I recommended a second opinion to consider options. The home warranty wonâ€™t do anything unless itâ€™s deemed unsafe to use.
Furnace clean and tune. Cycled system. Checked heat exchanger. Found heavy rusting and etching in all chambers. No cracks found with camera, but found damage throughout all chambers. Checked, removed, and cleaned burners, flame sensor, and sparker. All three were ok, but all three are showing signs of getting worn. Checked electrical connections and clamps. Tightened all. Found very heavy rusting in both burner and blower compartments. Ventor motor has signs of leaking from the side and back of the motor compartment. Water damage and rust is throughout the entire system. Damage found on transformer and near the recently replaced main board. Found Ventor motor bearings to be worn and damaged. This may lead to the motor seizing. Checked and adjusted gas pressures to maximize efficiency. Preformed combustion test. Found that the amount of XS air (unburned combustion air) is higher than desired. This leads me to believe that there is some blockages in secondary heat exchanger, or a small c

Performed the level 2 package cleaning. Furnace: Burners and flame sensor are clean. Heat exchanger looks good. Combustion readings were normal. No CO detected in the air. Drain is clear. Heat rise was 51Â°. Only issue I located was the venter motor was a little louder than normal, however, it is operating just fine for now. AC: No leaks detected. Electrical components tested good. Condenser coil is clean. Refrigerant charge was normal. Subcool was 12Â° with a 15Â° temp split. All equipment is operating properly.
Performed the level 2 package and fireplace cleaning. Furnace: Burners and flame sensor are clean. Heat exchanger is starting to wear. Combustion readings were normal. No CO detected in the air. Drain is clear. Heat rise was 43Â°. AC: No leaks detected. Electrical components tested good. Condenser coil is clean. Refrigerant pressures were normal. Subcool was 10Â° with a 21Â° temp split. Fireplace: I cleaned the pilot assembly. Wiped away dust in the lower and upper compartments. Cleaned the glass and the logs. There was a significant amount of sout building up on th glass due to a log in the flame. I tried to readjust these as best I could to keep them out of the flame. All equipment is operating properly at this time.
Cycled system and hooked up gauges and checked pressures and temps. Found suction pressure low. Checked filter. Filter is new, but it is a restrictive filter. Removed filter and checked indoor coil found indoor coil half frozen. Cycled heat to melt coil. Ran heat for several mins. Coil is still slightly frozen. Cycled system again and added 2 pounds of R410-A refrigerant to help with cooling. Indoor coil temp went from 20 to 40 degrees. Subcooling is now 14. Possible coil issue. System is cooling at 17 degrees. Indoor coil is still frozen. Turned off cooling and turned on fan. Customer should check it tonight to see how cooling is. Strongly recommend ac clean and tune to check for any leaks or issues that can not be seen with frozen coil. Office to follow up. Quote given. Job complete. System is cooling at this time. Office to collect for job. Customer not home.
Performed furnace clean and tune; inspected the exhaust and intake PVC ensuring all connections were secured, removed and cleaned the burners along with the flame sensor, cycled system on and checked gas pressures, performed a combustion test verifying no CO in the airstream did receive high amounts of excess air, noticed water leak from blower compartment located leak at the drain trap cleared drain trap of debris, office to quote drain trap replacement with possible warranties. Job complete
Performed AC clean and tune; inspected the condenser electrical compartment and tested components, sprayed condenser with coil cleaner, cycled system on and checked pressures and temps system was overcharged had to remove 14 ounces of refrigerant for 24 degrees of superheat system calls for 27 degrees of superheat. This system is currently operating normal at this time. Due to the amount of dust found in the blower compartment I am including a quote for an electronic air cleaner. Job complete

Ac clean and tune. Checked indoor coil with refrigerant sniffer, no indications found of leak. Cycled system. Checked and cleaned electrical compartment. Tested compressor and fan motors, both tested just outside of caution range. This indicates that both motors may fail and are very worn. Used coil cleaner on condenser coil. Hooked up gauges and checked pressures and temps. Found subcooling low. Indoor coil is at 40 degrees. Found higher indoor temps with higher humidity. Tested split, it was 17 degrees. Condenser coil fins are very worn causing heat to stay in refrigerant. Due to age and condition, future failure is expected. Second opinion recommended. Job complete.
Performed the start up on the new AC. I removed the nitrogen and pulled the unit into a vacuum. I released the refrigerant into the lineset and tested the charge. I had to add one pound until I had an 11Â° subcool and a 17Â° temp split. Unit is cooling properly.
