Just had a ASZ 14 2.5 ton Condenser, and ASPF 2.5 ton AH w\ Expansion Valve installed.
Local dealer turned out to be a broker; not a full featured dealer. He has one full timer; but he's busy chasing bad installs and warrenty work.
So; after a call and a face to face I have parts only warranty; not the 10 year labor he told me befor I agreed to his work. He's a slippery fellow, and he sounds like he's been doing this for years and getting away with it. If I had not already know how a AC and a heat pump worked, he would have waltzed out pocketing the extra $$ for the TXV and hard start kit. I held the install team untill he sent a fellow over witth the TXV and HS kit
My next action is When I locate another dealer, and sweet talk him with a yearly maintenance contract to take over warranty claims if I need one.
I have 5 years in the HVAC buisiness, but that was when I was 14-19. Riding with my Dad on service calls; and the last year taking calls solo.
I own 2 sets of Robinair gauges, a vac pump and my Dads old school charging cylinder and micron gauge. These day I am an Engineer for a computer company based in Round Rock Texas.
I corrected all the install errors myself, as the broker never seemed to have time to come back out.
No TXV installed (Fixed by the installer)
TXV sensing bulb installed at 12-o-clock'
No hard dtart kit as I specced a TXV (Fixed by the installer)
condensate drain running up hill
Condensate "t" opening higher than the mid level of the water level in the drain
AH fan on default of 4 out of 5; and way overspeed per duct size.
My question is: can I have a single throw double pole relay installed to the high \ low cool on my thermostat to toggle the fan speeds on the fly?
Not toggling compressor stroke here, just slowing the AH speeds when the TS wants to shift from High to Low automatically for Humidity control.
Evaporator relay - STDP relay - Fan
Thanks in advance for assistance; and if you are shopping for a dealer..please make sure you select a contractor from this site; or do your homework. The fellow talked a good game but assumed I was "Talking".
You can imaging his surprise actually knew what the frac I saw talking about.
The bastage even offered me a job...
