Sorry for the graphic title but I'm pissed. Did my contractor screw me?
3-level townhome built new 1999
No basement, ground level entry
I used to have:
Comfortmaker 10 Seer upright split system in ground level laundry room
2.5 TN outdoor / 2.5 ton AC /2.5 blower w/ 50,000 BTU furnace.
System worked but after 10 years, parts started to die, so I figured an upgrade was in order
Now I just had installed:
Goodman 13 Seer upright split system in ground level laundry room
3TN outdoor / 3 ton AC / 4tn blower motor w/ 90,000 BTU furnace.
Contract said it was supposed to be 3 tons all around. But i knew something wasn't right because my new system is loud as hell! After I pulled the serial numbers, come to find out contractors gave me a 4tn blower motor. I hope this wasn't a scratch-n-dent he found on ebaby.
If it was just an oversized blower motor then I wouldn't be pissed, but within 1month of installation, the outdoor comp unit fan broke and damaged the coils. freon had a slow leak. at the inside unit, water isn't draining properly and has damaged basement hardwood and carpet. unit showing signs of rust on the inside due to excessive water. water is all over inducer fan, control board, everything!! it's been happening everyday for last 3 months. i replace 4 towels twice a day to soak up all the water. contractor not returning calls. oh did i mention, that the inducer fan kicks on by itself, and I only have the air on...no calls for heat! (needless to say, I had to physically unplug this fan, especially since water was pouring all over it)
Now that i'm going to have to replace the whole bottom furnace and start on a lawsuit with this Licensed Contractor, i'm wondering about that 4tn blower that i didnt ask for. yeah, air blows through vents stronger, but sure as hell isn't cooler. other than it being louder than I like, what other reasons can you think of that this 4tn is hurting more than helping? electrical bill? efficiency? overcooling/undercooling evap coils?
any assistance is appreciated
