Get a third opinion is all I'll say here.
I wouldn't let either of them work on my system.
If your within 20 miles of my local, we will come out for the standard trip fee.
We'll even install it for a price.
If your outside of our 20 miles, you have to pay travel time.
Travel cost could...
It's actually weird.
Alot of our customers aren't that worried about winter. If it gets down to 64* in the house....eh. Come in the morning.
Our late night winter calls are people who haven't...
What happens when the unit is low on charge?
not on goodman, or alot of older carriers.
On a GMH95, G would energize your cool tap on the motor.
Wiring it to Y would either : Not do anything (some older boards Y was just an empty...
Some state constitutions specifically mandate the sheriff's office.
Unless you differentiate the two.
If they get hotter than they are designed to by the manufacturer, they bubble. The REASON they bubble, is on purpose.
When they get pushed up, it breaks the contacts internally, thus shutting off...
Is that due to condensation? Wouldn't we have problems with coils?
Or are you getting it from something else?
In a residential home, or commercial building?
"Standard" wiring, or 3-phase electric? Specifically, if you have a wild leg.
Are you running off a backup generator at all?
Solar? Wind? Water?...
I know that we've changed out about 4 indoor coils on fujitsu's this year.
This would be the first year we've changed more than 1.
I'd back up from the cap entirely.
May not have ever been the problem with your unit to begin with.
If you want this fixed, your going to have to go somewhere else.
The guys you have coming to your home are clowns.
We do not help people repair their own equipment here, as it is part of the rules.
Which is why some of the responses are less than helpful.
Glad I'm not the only one who noticed it.
You can actually see where it got hot enough the glue let go of the compressor.
Just looked this place up.
1 year parts warranty? Good lord.
Those are some big loops to jump through just be able to get the awesome 1 year...
I wonder if rain-x sprayed on the blades would cause the water to roll off.
Just thinking out loud. We've never had this type of issue.
Mechanically speaking, what they are wanting to do is fine.
If it were the other way around, replacing the outside only, then I'd be throwing red flags.
Financially, it doesn't make sense.
If your keeping it 78*, you shouldn't be using a heat pump.
If humidity is a concern, then you really should have an independent dehumidifier.
Technically, a kit could shove a stick in the fan...
Here's the problem.
If it's registered as a mismatch, they know it's a mismatch. Trying to re-register may be an issue.
As for your situation, provided the unit...
To get the lifetime compressor warranty, it as to be a matched system.
Do you think if all I cared about was making money, that I spend my time here?
Sounds like some friend you have.
Throw the compressor in it, find someone to do it right.
Here's the thing with used equipment:
Plan on it not working.
Seriously, just plan on it not working.
It may, and if it does, then awesome. It worked out for you.
If your not prepared...
Looks like about $50 a year, right?
Which, sucks by the way. I mean sucks. Completely.
Peel off the wine cellar brand sticker to find the real brand name.
I would continue to use the ecobee thermostat.
It's a very nice thermostat, that will properly control your system.
Big 18 seer eh?
FYI, not a problem if your buddy is gonna throw in some free...
So...whats the plan you've got going on?
inquiring minds and all. Our advice is free!
Just to be clear about something, especially when you talk with contractors:
You can't have a modulating A/C or heat pump, because it would have to be an exact match with the furnace.
Identical, in every way shape and form.
When you order the unit, you don't even specify if your buying amana/goodman.
It doesn't even come with a badge.
If your contractor wants to put a badge...
Jrbenny will give the absolute here, but I've seen the documentation from EWC saying they are compatible, and will modulate a goodman furnace.
Pfft, the real pro's use cleaver-brooks.
Are you actually buying a tank, or you got a line on something free?
I'm waiting on something that rolls down the pike. Hopefully a bunch of 50 gallon barrels.
In my kneck of the woods, even in first stage, with 0 insulation in my house, your still oversized.
Give it up.
As a "premium" contractor, angies list will recommend your company over other people on the list.
As a "premium" contractor, you have the ability to put "big deals" on their website, to help...
We just quit angies list.
To many cheapskate customers.
I mean cheap.
As in, thinks the discounted angieslist diagnostic is 2x to 3x more expensive that it should be.
Plus, the new policy is...
I, sadly, have a completely different experience.
IF the unit is under warranty, we are required to call tech support, have them give us an authorization code after they walk us through a...
I don't have my list in front of me.
Find the EDR for a standard convector. Treat what you have as a standard convector.
Just count the small radiator inside the assembly, not the entire...
You CLEARLY knew the answer to this your last time around. It was just SO SIMPLE!
AND I QUOTE:
"70 percent at low fire equals 48000 btu ,how hard is that to figure,at88000 btu and 80...
Some weird crappy attempt at a convector.
Sounds like someone overcharged it, wrong piston, restriction, or low indoor airflow.
I'll assume you've checked your filter.
The hotter it gets, the more a heat pump that has a refrigerant...
Funny how something that works perfect needs to be repaired.
Funny how much soot can occur on something short cycling due to oversized.
Eh. I hear ya.
I'd just would want something that would modulate with that small of a zone, but I think we both agree about the water heater.
Good lord. Tankless, seriously.
A small one at that.
Instead of the standard plastic covers, these have a grip to them. I've slipped down...
Big beige furnace?
