Hello to everyone,
About a year ago I had my compressor and air handler replaced [appropriately sized and matched] by a licensed installer. I also had a complete new 200 amp service installed as well as whole-house surge protection. This work was also done by a licensed electrician and I am confident that all of this was quality work [overly so?].
Recently however I have noticed that when a storm interrupts service to the neighborhood/house [usually lasting about half-a-second] if the A/C was on at the time of the interruption it will come back on immediately but the noise from the compressor [Goodman GSX 4-ton w/Copeland Scroll] will be a good three or four times the normal level and there is a terrible vibration.
Every time I have checked after each incident I can see that the main panel breaker has not tripped. The only remedy seems to be to turn the system off at the thermostat and wait for at least 5 minutes before restarting - then the compressor comes back on and sounds and acts normal [FYI - always cool air and no icing].
Per the forums rules I am not asking for a step-by-step DIY if this is something major but is this normal behavior? Is there something [hopefully simple and cheap] that can be done to rectify this problem [if it is indeed a "problem"]?
Thank you in advance.
