    Just replaced 2 waterfurnace coils, 2 txvs, and a main circuit board...envision split systems. Slow parts delivery, seems like they attempt to avoid actually paying the labor warranty. Coils, coils...
  2. , i use

    The coated coils are epoxy coated.

    Tin plated has the look of aluminum on the back of the coil. Carrier STILL has premature cool failure with the tinplating process.

    Aluminum seems to be the...

    I thought formicary corrosion was caused by manufacturers using copper and aluminum coils when they knew the very well the type of environment the coils would be in.

    You know I'm just a layman...

    We removed 3 geothermals today...the 1985 models outlived the 1995 model by more than ten years....the 1995 had been dead for awhile....leaking water coils with open loop system.
    Old style lasted 25...

    I was told wf coils have an 80% failure rate in Florida. It is many times caused by formicary corrosion. Loops do not cause coil failure. Get the tin plated version..demand it.

  8. Reason for coil failure

    That double epoxy coating sounds nice. Do you know what your failure rate on coils is?

    The Goodman//Amana brand last year had over 7% failure in the first year. This is my own unscientific...

    What criteria did you base your decision to go with the installing contractor on?

    did you want the best product, the best service, or the lowest price? You can't have all three you know?

    If you pay anything you are doing better than some of this junk out there that doesnt pay a dime when 8% of their coils fail in the first year....

    Bottom line is people should not shop equipment...

    If a coil leaks and we gave you a ten year parts and labor warranty, you would not be paying anything for ten years. A lot of companies apparently don't have warranties that are true.
    They have...
  12. Few options

    We can get Waterfurnace although our rep is very slow to get back to us. FHP has one of the oldest branches in our city, therefore they are the orneriest to deal with. They do not answer questions...
