Chasing of the tail

Change it up

If I were in your situation the first thing I would do is ask the installing contractor to bring in the factory tech support rep because he is not able to figure it out. Beyond that if I was stuck...

Wher is it

No code

Yes I would think that if there was a permit pulled there would be an auxiliary pan. I am not sure what the limitations were but you have to have some way to stop the unit when the drain backs up,...

Where do I begin?

You are asking opinion questions which pretty much guarantees you are going to get many and varied response and noones going to agree so I am going to steer clear of that and leave it to the others,...

Good luck

You can buy whatever you want online and sometimes you will have good luck but I have been doing this a long time and Goodman has made a lot of claims of quality improvement over the last couple of...

No Blow

Replacing the plenum would not do you any good either. If the unit was properly sized in the first place (and they are either done right or downsized typically due to competitive bidding) then...

Too Hot

That is a lot of temperature difference, my first guess is that there is not actually any air movement (dampers closed or air blowing by the first few taps due to improper sizing) and you are...

Noisy

Giving him the benefit of the doubt he may have moved the coil on the reversing valve if it was the source of the noise but the contactor is the most likely culprit. You can easily check it out by...

Icing

If you had it off long enough to completely thaw you are probably all right with just replacing the filter. If not or if you ever see ice again the first thing to do is shut your heat cool off switch...

Not cool

It sounds like you have 24 volts coming into your board but not coming out it is possible that you have purchased a bad board. It does not happen very often but it does happen. I don't know where you...

Hot in TX

Are you sure the compressor is running? And if it is not you may have a bad capacitor. If you feel comfortable you could take the control box cover off and look at it, many times the failure is...

Unless you are living in the Taj Mahal distance should not be a problem. There have been many advances in the last couple of years to make these systems adaptable to almost any situation.

Every time I see customers do this they always end up calling me with the same issues you have raised and I always tell them the same thing.

Danger Will Robinson

I don't care where you are for a 1200 sq. ft. house $8500 ($5000 GRAND PRIZE + $3500 Install) Sounds to me like they are still trying to make 15% or so which I guess is OK just a little disingenuous....

Variable speeds are different if they are properly set up and if you run the fan all the time it will blow moisture back off the coil when the AC satisfies but that is usually a negligible amount and...

Not there

Sorry I am late with this but the place you are looking at, unless this is a downflow system, is not where the cleaning needs to be done. The side of the coil the air enters on is where the chemical...
