In December AC unit not blowing cold air. Called HVAC pro to check. No freon so recharged. Capacitor went out either during recharge or during testing after recharge. New capacitor put in but not taking up freon. HVAC tech checked condenser(?) coil & stated expansion(?) valve may need cleaning or replaced-but he couldn't be sure until both were tried. Removed expansion valve & took it w/ him to match the replacement.
He left panel off where coil & valve were and said it would be ok & can still run heater - I'm wondering if it's really ok? Was out of town x1wk & tech can't get back to replace valve until Fri.
Noticed yesterday water dripping...sometimes running down side of furnace (Amana 90 AC & Gas Furnace) where two 1/2" PVC tubes are located above a square grey plastic container (drip container?). The container was filled to rim w/ water. Called tech -said it shouldn't have anything to do with the valve he removed.
Does this sound right? I know nothing about HVAC & I want to be asking the right questions when he comes back. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks
