CONDENSER MOTOR: BURNED – – $50
Cause: Motors get burned due to lack of maintenance usually, the condenser gets dirty and starts to make the motor run hot, this heat burns the paint off the motor and warps the bearings.
Effect: Motor becomes noisy, loss of efficiency, heat is transferred back into house, high energy bills, loss of cooling capacity, eventual motor failure, excessive wear and tear on compressor and parts. 100% failure rate.
Solution: Replace motor and clean condenser. While the motor could still be, running and may last a while longer before failure. It will probably fail on a holiday or a weekend when it cost more to fix it.
Cost will vary depending on the motor size and HP.
EFFICIENCY: 5-10 – Need Financing – $Test EFFICIENCY – REPLACEMENT SYSTEM COST
Cause: The low efficiency can be cause from many reasons. Lack of maintenance, poor airflow, dirty condensers, poor installation, leaking return and many more. Most Older R-22 systems are 5-12 seer systems.
Effect: Higher energy bills, lack of capacity when needed.
Solution: Replace system with higher efficiency system to lower energy consumption.
Increase energy efficiency by considering a replacement system
REFRIGERANT TYPE: R-22 – Accepted – $Test REFRIGERANT REPLACEMENT COST
Cause: Older condensers used R-22, EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE REFRIGERANT. U.S. phasing out the production of R-22 in the U.S.
Effect: Excessively expensive refrigerant, phasing out of production as of 2020, the cost of the refrigerant will be cost prohibitive to purchase.
Solution: There is only one solution and that is to replace the system with a 410-A unit. If your system needs refrigerant, we strongly consider replacement of the system.
R-22 systems will be cost prohibitive in near future
INSULATION: NONE – Accepted – $Test INSULATION REPAIR COST
Cause: Insulation was not put in the home when built or the R value has decreased and insulation has settled over the years.
Effect: High energy bills, a/c runs all the time, oversized a/c system for house, high humidity.
Solution: Insulate the attic with cellulose, bring to an R-30 10’’ of insulation.
We can insulate your attic for you.
