for Beavercreek, OH
here for a blower on a 19-year-old furnace that is not working. Customer found system froze up and burnt electrical smell coming from indoor blower that was not operational. I found the capacitor on the blower has failed. Advised customer that we can replace the capacitor and the blower might work for a brief period of time but more than likely will eventually fail. Customer wanted to go ahead and try capacitor and if that works. If motor does fail he will just replace the HVAC system. Provided a quote on a replacement system. If customer goes with replacement we will credit back the amount paid today off of the installation total. Blower is now working again but blower amps are high.
on arrival found bad capacitor on 22 year old Goodman heat pump. Customer states system was working well before this. Replaced capacitor at customers request. Did explain to her that the air handler is 33 years old and the heat pump is 22 years old which is extremely old for an all electric system, would really consider replacing due to age and condition.
here for a eight year old system that is not keeping up. This is a 4 ton air conditioning system that is in a coffee shop/bakery. System runs constantly and does not meet setpoint on thermostat. On first inspection of unit I found condenser coil completely plugged. Cleaned condenser coil, hosed out thoroughly. Checked refrigerant charge after doing this and found system running at 15.5° superheat. Temperature split is 23°. Calculated system BTU output at 47,628 BTU (48,000 BTU unit) Enthalpy Delta was 7.0 degrees which is ideal. System is currently doing all that it can. It is just not big enough to meet the load on this building with people in and out, the ovens and other equipment in the coffee shop that produce heat. Customer advised me that another company is coming this week to install two ductless units to help meet the load on this space. Didn’t find any other issues.
