I need information...I've been searching for information on a 16 month old combination (or packaged?) unit of gas forced furnace with 2 ton air conditioner combination. Located in Michigan.
Are there a lot of problems with this type of unit? What are some of the problems early on?
My condo is small -- the unit is upright in second bedroom closet to the exterior wall.
The A/C started not to cool off my 700 sq. foot condo (second floor - carriage unit over garages) back in July. My electric bills went from 50 @ month to $200! It just ran and ran. Cleaned filter in August.
I am in the field working in Washington DC and my daughter called me to tell me that the furnace isn't working in the Michigan condo.
The package unit is new -- cost $2,597.00 to install May of 2004. The contractor gave 90 days labor and 1 year parts but isn't there a manufacturer warranty if something is really wrong with the unit such as blower?
I don't know the model name yet but asked my daughter to do look it up and send to me.
My receipt from the contractor read:
BiR( ? sloppy handwriting) or RiR gas forced HWC furnace w/ 2 ton combination a/c system with gas line hook-up metal work electrical
I am going to have to call someone to look at it, but I don't want to call the guy who installed it. Would like an objective opinioh.
Any feedback is appreciated.
