Viewing: AC repair
May 11, 2018
I need advice regarding Carrier furnace heat exchanger problems.
There was a furnace lawsuit back in 2007 or 2008 due to the bad design of the exhaust so that moisture drained back into the furnace. Then the furnaces rusted from the inside out.
My furnace was installed well after that time frame.
The settlement of that class action lawsuit was a lifetime warranty. Do you have an extended warranty for this furnace, regardless of age?
No, I don’t have an extended warranty.
Really oversized heat exchangers are likely to fail prematurely.
It is more likely the furnace is undersized.
Or you have leaking ducts that let all the hot air escape.
If that were the case, I’d have similar problems with the AC not being able to cool down the house, and that’s not a problem for us.
There have been cases where gaskets let smoke into the house, and the repairman suggested replacing the heat exchanger instead of the gaskets.
No, haven’t seen smoke in the house. I’m more concerned about carbon monoxide.
A cracked heat exchanger isn’t going to cause carbon monoxide that leaks into the home, because of how the hot air flows through the house.
What would cause carbon monoxide build up?
Blocked or broken flues, open return air ducts by the furnace, insufficient air for combustion and open return air panning are far bigger culprits.
But it is only the heat exchanger I’m concerned about.
A lack of proper air flow can kill your heat exchanger, which is why you want to change the filters often.
And here I only thought about the air moving motors.
Lack of airflow can cause the heat exchanger to overheat, making it more likely to fail, or simply shut off due to being too hot.
Then I really need to check the air filters.
Check for cracks, because any crack is a reason to replace the heat exchanger, if not the whole furnace. And when it is running, look for light that you can see through the heat exchanger, because that’s an indication of hidden cracks.
That’s harder to do on the secondary heat exchanger.
If you remove the blower motor to see the secondary heat exchanger and see marks above or on that blower assembly, then it is likely the secondary heat exchanger that has failed.
I don’t think I could do that without upping the future repair bill.
The heat exchanger is designed to last the life of the unit, ten to twenty years. The sheer cost of replacing it usually leads people to replace the whole furnace instead.
I guess that’s why some people can get away with saying replace the whole thing instead of the gaskets when it is leaking fumes. Is relying on leaking water a good verification of the problem?
Only if the leak isn’t due to a clogged drain line or condensate escaping through various joints and intersections on the furnace, so you think it is a heat exchanger problem when it is really drainage or combustion problems.
I guess that’s why they say that everyone needs an annual visual inspection of the furnace.
That won’t catch all cracks, but thermal imaging can see the cracks that might otherwise be hidden like round ones around where pipes meet the heat exchanger.

I need your help with electric furnace problems diagnosis.
If the power is out, so is the furnace.
The power is not out.
If the furnace tripped the breaker or something else tripped it, the breaker needs to be reset and then the furnace likely needs to be reset.
Let’s just say I don’t need to act like it is a gaming console in need of a reboot and constantly reset it.
If it shut down due to some electrical or software glitch, power cycling it and then hitting reset if it doesn’t come up properly is one potential solution.
Give me a different one.
Before you freak, check that the thermostat is set to heat and set well above the current temperature to force the furnace to come on.
The problem isn’t that the furnace won’t come on because the thermostat reads the room temperature one or two degrees low.
If the fans aren’t running, the furnace will shut down as it starts to overheat –
Or per the programmed routine that if blowers and fans aren’t running, turn off so it doesn’t overheat. At least diagnosing the system for that is easy – is something silent that shouldn’t be.
So would a fan or blower rattling or grinding as it wears out, which would be why it can’t deliver enough air flow to the unit to let it stay running.
That’s what pressure switches or limit switching are there for.
If the fans aren’t coming on, then the issue could be the fan relay, control transformer or any other wiring.
I do hear the blowers and fans going.
Another common issue is the clogged air filters preventing it from getting enough air, so it either shuts down for lack of airflow or wears out because it worked twice as hard to put out enough air.
This isn’t like the air filters are black.
If they are black from dirt or even gray, replace them. If black from mold, you’d want to replace it to limit the ability of mold to start growing in the vents and eliminate the smell in the house.
Fortunately, I haven’t had a smell indication of the latter scenario.
If the unit moves air but it isn’t warm, you may have problems with the heat sequencer, the heating element, the limit control board or wiring issue.
The heating element in my oven has gone out a few times.
Most electric furnaces have more than one electric heating element, so if the air is barely warm, check the temperature of the return air grill and check that versus the closest vent against what temperature rise the manual says you should get. If it isn’t right, one element has gone out.
I’d call for a professional to check that, because I don’t know how to tell which is bad. I don’t think there’s a window to let you look in and see as there is for a gas furnace.
I don’t know if you have the skills to replace the heating element in an electric furnace, but that’s a common reason it isn’t blowing warm air.
If it is working intermittently, I’d say it is a wiring or connection problem, but a professional needs to look into that.
If the temperature across the furnace return air grill and vent is too great a difference, then the blower motor may need to be oiled or have its RPM increased to distribute the hot air better.
I’d love to know that the furnace is almost doing its job too well and that maintenance is all we need to fix it.

I need your help with Goodman furnace ignitor problems.
You installed a Goodman furnace, and that brand is not very good.
That doesn’t help me now.
One LED flashing on the control board or warning lights means it has locked out after it couldn’t ignite after three attempts. You have to reset it or power cycle the furnace to be able to tell it to try again.
I’ve heard of turning the thermostat down and then turning it back up would work.
No, not if it is locked out. After an hour of lockout, though, most Goodman furnaces will try to run again.
It just isn’t running right, well, trying to run but not working.
Five LED flashes means it senses a flame without a call for heat. It won’t try to ignite if it thinks things are already burning.
I’d hope that is a sensor problem, because if it is burning when it shouldn’t, I have a gas leak.
The error code of seven LED flashes means the igniter circuit has a problem.
That may be what I saw.
Whether the igniter itself needs to be replaced or the wiring to it is loose, I don’t know.
I would call in a pro do to either of those.
If you replace the igniter and the wiring is right and it still won’t ignite, then you need to check all the rollouts. Those safety devices will prevent it from igniting.
I wonder if I’m down to checking the voltage of the wiring in case some other sensor is screaming don’t turn on!
A bad transformer could prevent it from igniting, but so could a bad board.
A messed up control board is as expensive to replace as one or two blowers.
That’s why power cycling the furnace to clear the errors is a good thing to try.
Rebooting doesn’t fix everything.
Sure, and it won’t fix it if the control board has loose wiring that prevents it from supplying enough voltage for the gas to ignite.
Now we’re back to a lack of power.
I was assuming that you at least made sure the furnace has power to run, since gas furnaces do require electricity these days.
I can see lights on the control board, so the unit has power.
There’s also checking the errors and listening to the unit as it cycles. If the gas valve tries to open after the draft inducer turns on, and you don’t hear the hissing of gas, the thing isn’t igniting because there is no fuel.
The control board being bad could also explain why the gas valve doesn’t open or pressure switches read wrong.
And if it is the control board, and it likely is if you’ve ruled out mechanical and electrical issues, it will be expensive.
So is the diagnostic when I ask them to see if that is the problem.
If you try to run the furnace and it gives you different error messages each time it tries to run and fails, then it is more likely the control board. If it ignites this time but fails next time citing a switch, it is the switch, the sensor or wiring to it or combination thereof.
Sure, and even the wiring from the control board that sends the signal to the ignition to turn on.

What do you think of Trane vs Lennox heat pumps? I don’t know which one to get.
Trane rivals Lennox in terms of customer service. And both are fairly similar overall.
I know they are comparable in terms of price — they are both expensive.
Part of the price is related to the unit’s efficiency. Trane’s lower end heat pumps are the XB13 with 13 SEER and XB14 that gets up to 16 SEER.
Up to 16 SEER means it is usually 14 SEER.
The XL20I heat pump gets up to 20 SEER. It is one of the most efficient heat pumps on the market.
And it is one of the most expensive, since it is the most expensive Trane.
For the high end heat pumps like the XL20I and XL15I, you get a ten year limited warranty on all the major parts and twelve years on the compressor. That lowers the repair costs on an already reliable unit.
Still too expensive for my tastes. If I buy one of those, I won’t have money for more than living off rice and beans.
For the cheaper Trane heat pumps, there is a ten year limited warranty for the compressor and five year limited warranty on all the other parts.
How limited is that warranty?
Trane requires you to register the heat pump within sixty days to get the full warranty. The full warranty does not cover labor or refrigerant.
I do not care much about refrigerant unless it leaks a lot.
That’s Coleman, Bryant and Goodman.
What do you think of Lennox heat pumps?
For every person who buys one, four to five people give it a one star review and a few wish they could give it zero stars. I know Lennox is a major brand, but too many people who own it wish they did not.
Then I need to go with Trane.

What do you think of Goodman vs Trane heat pumps?
It is hard to think of anything Goodman does well.
They make heaters, air conditioners, furnaces and heat pumps.
Their air conditioners and furnaces are only commonplace because they are so cheap that home builders are willing to buy them in masse to put in a whole subdivision and check off that item on the checklist.
How does that relate to heat pumps, unless home builders put those in, too?
A heat pump is less efficient than a dedicated heater or air conditioner. Which means it is even more likely to do badly.
I’ve seen heat pumps that do a good job.
In some ways, a heat pump is more likely to fail than a furnace or AC.
That’s just because it runs year round and needs more maintenance.
You are not disproving my point. And if you get a Goodman heat pump, you now have a device that may conk out at any time during the year while having more operating hours in which to wear it out.
What do you think of Trane heat pumps?
You pay more for the equipment, but you get more out of it, too.
Are they more efficient?
Trane and Goodman are probably comparable on efficiency, but that’s only because the Goodman doesn’t run as much.
It does not have to run as long to cool my home.
No, just broken down.
How would you rate their customer service?
The HVAC crew would love to sell a Goodman to you for the hopes of ensuring paying both their kids’ summer camps and Christmas vacation.
What about Trane?
Trane heat pumps cost more, but they are more reliable. Spare parts cost more, but you do not need them as often.
I heard Trane had a decent warranty.
Trane’s warranty for heat pumps and air conditioners is up to a decade for parts. Labor is, I think, for the first two years.
I’m going with Trane.

If You Read Nothing Else Today, Read This Report on Compressor Discharge Line
Doing this will allow liquid refrigerant to join the system leading to a ruined compressor. The hotter refrigerant going into the compressor should be removed. In these instances, the compressor may not be isolated and the system has to be discharged, using approved refrigerant recycling equipment. Too modest air compressors for what’s being compressed air driven will still be an issue. Consider a 1 pass flooded evaporator. It includes a desiccant that removes moisture from the computer system. In case you decide your application needs extensive air filtration, receive a micro-filter element for the extra air filter you’ll need.
The yellow hose isn’t on the system right now. Pumps utilize electricity in order to work properly. You will have to borrow or purchase a vacuum pump to complete the repair. A tiny 2-stage vacuum pump that is made for automobile refrigeration systems is readily available for less than $100.00. Certain kinds of valves should be set up in the pump to be able to permit it to re-pressurize automatically. A modulating valve is a good idea to keep up a consistent temperature and decrease water consumption. The shutoff valve, for instance, might be a controlled solenoid valve, or may be an exact fluid-tight check valve or any different type of valve.
A high condensing temperature is just one of them. The heat taken out of the refrigerant in the condenser and sub-cooler is equivalent to the heat absorbed in the evaporator as well as the work achieved by the compressor. All this heat is accumulated at the compressor discharge and has to be taken off. This discharge temperature shouldn’t exceed 225F. Because the compressor’s discharge temperature is superheated, a pressure-temperature relationship doesn’t exist and it has to be read right on the discharge line by some type of temperature-measuring device.
Without it, you won’t be in a position to use water in the upstairs component of your house, especially in the event the ground water source doesn’t have an extremely strong force. Preferably an automated drain is going to be used (see drain valves section for an entire description of the form of drain valves available). It should be used to remove the moisture and solids.
There aren’t any moving parts besides a motor valve to discharge fluids. Otherwise, let it run until it’s clear. The rear of the compressors discharge valve is in fact the hottest portion of the system, but it’s not possible for a service technician to measure. There are likewise a wide variety of `point of use’ dryers which are available to deal with exceptional conditions. This line ought to be a good line since there is no possible partial load air delivery with these control procedures.
New technology has eliminated a lot of the problems traditionally related to deliquescing desiccants. It is almost always better to oversize the compressed air piping system you decide to install. Hydrate control was the very first, and is currently the most commonly used application for deliquescing desiccant drying. There are a sizable number of compressor types out there for use in industry today. There are many types out there. Armed with this overall info, you can estimate the expense of generating the purge air demands of the different kinds of dryers.

A Secret Weapon for Furnace Zone Valve
You have to learn which valves aren’t working properly, to do this go around your home and turn each one of the thermostats all around your home up to the maximum. Zone valves have a reputation for breaking down. They are typically installed on the return side of the hot water loop no matter the type of loop you have. If this zone valve was constructed within the previous 30 decades, you should have the ability to replace the power head on it without draining the heating system. Enter the room wherever your boiler is and search for the zone valves.
In the event the valve is leaking, drain the system and inspect the O-ring in addition to the valve body. Closing this valve will eliminate the chance of flooding, if you’ve picked the incorrect loop. When it fails, it is usually because it has become stuck open. AUTOMAG zone valves should be installed in agreement with their supplied instructions.
The valves can’t be moved to return lines without lots of work. These valves are likewise a typical problem leading to service calls. If they are not present you may have to shut down the feed to the entire boiler. There are a few preliminary things we should cover before taking a look at a particular zone valve.
Normally 1 thermostat controls one particular heating zone and is connected to a zone valve. A thermostat controls the entire thing. Without a great comprehension of what’s going on when you turn up that thermostat, you will discover it rather tricky to follow along. When you have turned the thermostats up to maximum then you’ll should go and have a look at your zone valves. Heating thermostats have a very easy job.
In case the burner goes out then the procedure may need to be repeated. After it has lit make sure the bleeder screw is not leaking and that you have removed the oil from the area that you bled. Once you have cleaned your oil burner you’ll be able to rest assured your system is about to present uninterrupted climate control for your house.
What Does Furnace Zone Valve Mean?
The system will sound as a river, running through your home. Each sort of heating system will call for different yearly maintenance. If you’ve got an older heating system in your house, it’s recommended you investigate the new high tech computerized boilers and furnaces readily available today.
The Hidden Gem of Furnace Zone Valve
Along the way there’ll be a check valve to avoid oil from falling back in the tank once the system is off or in standby. As with any other manufacturer, you will want to comprehend how a boiler system works before you can properly troubleshoot difficulties with your system. To simplify the reply to all 3 questions, is to explain the way the system works to begin with. Many systems are going to have an automated feeder set up to carry out this duty. If you’ve got a single zone system this isn’t necessary as the entire system is going to be drained to a level under the heat your working on.

I need your advice regarding Amana air conditioner troubleshooting.
I understand that; Amana’s quality went way downhill after they stopped having the collective make it and letting the cheapest factory do it instead.
How do I troubleshoot the Amana AC I have now?
There’s a 2014 class action lawsuit regarding the evaporator coils being too thin. They corrode and crack.
I heard some of the units had coils in the air handlers too thin as well.
If your unit relatively is working longer and harder to get the same level of cooling, I’d say that the coils are likely to blame. If it is literally freezing over and you’re not running it when it is 60 outside, that might be to blame.
If I was running the AC when it was sixty outside, I would not be surprised if it was recreating a scene from the Frozen movie – and I’d have a totally different problem.
The problem with leaky coils was bad enough for units sold between 2009 on that the manufacturer was giving sellers an allowance to fix them.
I think that was Goodman, and I already know they are not any good.
Goodman makes a lot of air conditioners that get sold under the Amana name.
That explains the decline in quality.
Problems with the start capacitor can be partially mitigated by installing a starter kit.
The thing works intermittently or gives weird error codes.
If it is erroring out after a power outage or power surge like a lightening strike, turn it off, wait five minutes for the power inside to dissipate, then turn it back on.
You’re telling me to reboot my AC.
At least it is a free thing to try before you assume a thousand dollar control panel needs to be replaced.
The control panels are several hundred dollars.
Add in the cost of the guy showing up to trouble shoot it, and it easily costs a thousand dollars.
That better be covered by the warranty.
Amana has very few people who work on their warranty, due to low reimbursement rates. So you’ll find lots of people willing to repair it, if you pay for it out of pocket.
What if the unit is frozen?
Set it to run on just fan mode for a while to thaw out, then turn the AC back on and look for a professional to recharge the refrigerant while you try to find someone to replace the cracked coils, leaking valves or whatever else is wrong.
The compressor might be failing.
Replacing that is approaching the cost of a new AC, though replacing the whole thing with a different model does technically solve your problem.

There are several sorts of air-conditioning systems you can have installed in your residence. Lots of people buy an air conditioner that’s too large, thinking it is going to provide much better cooling. To save power and money, you need to try to purchase an energy-efficient air conditioner and lessen your central air conditioner‘s energy usage.
If you must mount the air conditioner at the narrow end of a very long room, start looking for models with a turbo fan mode that may drive air further in the room.

It is a great way to remain comfortable, however it does use up a large amount of electricity and can be expensive to maintain. It is one of the most expensive operating costs that a business faces today. Cooling and air conditioning is the previous field you need to become greatly familiarized with for HVAC training.
Ac systems may also be made dependent on desiccants. In theory, an ac system should have the ability to eliminate moisture from the air. Your air-conditioning system should be maintained just as with any other element of your house’s HVAC system. Air-conditioning techniques operate on a standard scientific process called phase conversion. Prior to 1994, most automotive air-conditioning systems used R-12 for a refrigerant.

A few Tips to reduce AC electricity consumption:
1) Ideal Temperature
In an air conditioner, higher the temperature that you set, lower is the electricity consumption. We have seen that 25 degree celsius is an ideal temp for both cooling comfort and electricity savings. If you set the temp lesser than 25, then your ac will consume more electricity.
Using ceiling fans helps to regulate the cooling of the ac throughout the room. However, if the roof of your house is directly facing the sun, then avoid using ceiling fans along with air conditioners.
2) Placement of outdoor unit
If the outdoor unit of your air conditioner is installed at a place where it gets a lot of heat from the sun or from other heat emitting appliances, then the cooling of the ac will be reduced. Also make sure that the outdoor unit is not placed in a cluttered space for maximising its output.
Air conditioners are meant to cool enclosed spaces. So it is very important that the heat entering the room through the walls, ceilings and windows should be minimised. For doing that, you can white-paint the roof of your house, or use thermal insulation for the ceiling. Thermal insulating wallpaper can also be used for the walls of the room. Keeping the doors and windows closed and using curtains will help in insulation.
Clean the filters of the ac before start of the season as unclean filters block the air inflow. Also make sure that you don’t miss out on the Annual Maintenance Contract

Perhaps I should start the beginning. About 4 weeks ago my air conditioner stop working. I called an AC repair companies number that I found on a billboard not so far from my house. When they got here they told me that my air conditioner was in pretty bad shape and would need to be replaced. So I decided to call for prices on brand new air conditioners.
I ended up calling to numerous other air conditioning repair companies that told me that they could fix the air conditioner for about 2000 dollars. One actually gave me an option to replace it for just over 5000 dollars which was a lot less money than the first estimate that I got. I made a fourth call to a company that I’m happy to say is the most reputable AC repair company that I have found. TNA Heating and Cooling, and had them come out and diagnose the problem with my air conditioner. In fact they found 2 problems.
When they were done repairing the air conditioner my bill was under 1000 dollars. Considering that I was just about to spend 5000 dollars this was definitely a welcome expense and contrasting to the other AC repair companies.
No one ever did explain why I had to buy a new air conditioner, instead of getting the AC repaired
I’m still a little confused as to why my air conditioner must be replaced. No one could really explain why it has to be replaced and why they could not be repair it. So for the life of me, I just want them to tell me why they wanted me to replace an AC unit when this one is working fine since its been repaired.
In all fairness my air conditioner is a little bit old. I’ve had the home for about 7 years and I think it was built 3 years before that. So the air conditioner is between 10 and 12 years old near as I can tell. Now this doesn’t seem that old to me but apparently the first 3 contractors thought that it was. TNA informed me that the air conditioner could continue to work for an additional 5 seasons.
If you are looking for an honest diagnose for your air conditioning repair in Las Vegas, you can find TNA Heating and Cooling by going to their website. The website name is arctichvac.com, They were very good about coming out and checking the AC unit, and gave me a three year warranty on the repairs that they made. So the best advisce that I can give anyone that lives in Las Vegas and has AC problems is that AC repairs done by Arctic HVAC . Com is the website to go to.
