I'll try to make it short... We have a GeoThermal system for our newly built home, that is getting ready to shut down for the summer. (We'll be moving in with the in-laws until fall or come up with $$,$$$ to add a conventional system and redo all duct work). For any who are interested, our loops are at 110-130 degrees - we're trying to solve that mystery also.
Here's what I'm looking for in a nut shell; We keep getting error and fault codes. Like "161- Excess static pressure stagedown - 255 events active" OR
Fault code "possible frozen coil - 5 events" Static pressure 1.06 Can we tell how well the duct work is functioning with the readings available? From what I know this great little thermostat stores information on just how well the units and duct work are functioning - I just don't speak "evolutionese" - I'm looking for someone to help translate, so I can be better educated on the choices I make when we hire someone to fix this system. I can't afford to fix it a third time.
We live in a fairly small town and I'd really like to find an expert to help me understand what is happening to our system as far as the information on the thermostat goes.
Background: We have an Bryant evolution thermostat and Bryant air handlers - but the whole Geo system is so poorly constructed (ie he has the geo units hooked up wrong per manufacturer!) that our geothermal system has never functioned correctly - (and it's amazing what adding COOLANT to the system will do! - took the A/C contrator 8 months to figure that one out. My kids spent the winter getting warm by our oven) Sorry for the vent... Now as the temps rise, he has abandoned us, two of the new A/C contractors we are looking at have said the duct work is "horrible - something from spiderman's hideout" All Flex, no hard duct and is undersized.
Any info or leads to who could help would be greatly appreciated.
