for Westerville, OH
Washed Bryant outdoor unit down with hose to remove debris. Unit was quite clean. System is 16-17 years old and not cooling as much as it used to. During hotter days, The AC will struggle to maintain temperature. The system is working as it should.
Service work performed: Zone system not faulting at arrival But zone dampers seem to be sticking periodically, when system has a call to cool upstairs the downstairs gets froze out. Customer did say after charging system, house did cool more effectively. Checked pressures and sub cool is still on target. Customer wants quote to replace entire system and zone system.
Checked temp difference issues in house from 2nd to 3rd floor. System was originally a zone system but has been abandoned and now just operates as a traditional system. 2nd floor (main floor) is 72 degrees on the thermostat but the. 3rd floor (master bed) is 77 degrees. Customer has a existing Pro 8000 that has the capability of using a wireless indoor sensor to average.
Customer had experienced no other past issues relating to cooling. Explained the outdoor and indoor units perform best with a clean outdoor coil and a clean filter. The dirtier the coil or filter(or both), the harder(and in most cases it will also run longer periods) your system will operate.
Arrived on site, we ran temporary wires from attic after finding a short in the wires. We wired this up and it turned the system. Found the 2009 Carrier system a little low on refrigerant added refrigerant to fill system up to correct levels charged . System is fully operational at this time
