We had a house fire due to electrical in carport 2 months ago. Over half of the home was a total loss. The 2 story sustained heavy smoke damage and all the central roof decking and trusses were burned due to the roof ventilation being torn off during the fire.
We have a 1 year old Amana heat pump with a return plentum that was running with the heat on until the fireman disconnected power. The condenser unit was outside and was in close proximity of the fire. We looked inside the duct and floorspace and it is black. Because our insurance adjuster has been slow to handle the claim, the entire system has gone 2 months with oily soot as well as hard freezes, snow, rain and now very warm days. He just told us that he is only approving the unit and duct to be cleaned vs replaced.
Our concern is that there may be corrosion within the system especially since it was running during the fire and the amount of time gone by. Once we settle the fire claim and the check is signed should the system have problems we will be on our own. We need advise, please!
