Hey guys. Sorry if this is the wrong place or an improper introduction. I'm in a time constraint and trying to educate myself on some of this ac stuff. Sorry if I use improper terminology or piss anyone off.
I am in the process of buying a house built in 1995 in TEXAS. It has 2 separate ac units. One unit is only cooling 13 degrees and the other about 16. I have had an independent HVAC guy come out and inspect. He says both coils need to be replaced and both are low on freon. He thinks one coil might have been replace at one point but can't find a date stamp anywhere. These are also the old r22 type. Furthermore one of the fan motors was installed wrong and drawing extremely high amperage. The air is comping out of sideways and not really vertically. i am assuming this is due to a too high of a blade pitch angle?
Will this burn the motor out faster?
Should I even bother replacing the coils, or look into a new r14 unit.
Here is the catch.
The owners say they had the AC serviced 2 to 3 months ago(I don't know what they did). My guy said the coils where clean. They bought a sellers Home warranty and are saying that the warranty will fix them. I think they knew they where there last leg and got the warranty to try to avoid having to fix them. Where do you think I stand as far as legitimate fair negotiations with the problem? Any insight to these "home warranties". We are waiting on the home warranty hvac guys inspection and our option period ends in 2 days. Eeek. I'm worried the warranty company is going to want to recharge the freon instead of fixing. Kind of like puttin a band-aide on a cut artery.
Or maybe I am just being over paranoid.
thanks again and sorry if this post isn't in the appropriate area.
