Arrived and the customer is having the same issue. Found the water coming from the back left corner of the air handler. Opened the filter up and the filter was dry under the primary pan and the pan was dry. The plenum under the unit was all dry inside as well. Pitched the primary pan with some cardboard pieces since the customer thought it may be back pitched. Tested the drain and the system is draining.
Arrived and the customer had two issues. One had to do with some water coming from the bottom of the air handler downstairs, found the condensate line not pitched correctly. Pitched it and tested the drain. The other issue was no hot water. Found the thermostat wire for the indirect tank broken and not making a connection with the transformer wire. Stripped it back and tied it back into the circuit. The water will get hot in about 30-45 minutes once the boiler heats it. No other issues at this time.

Performed annual AC tuneup. Replaced plugged Merv air filter. Hosed off outdoor coil. Inspected indoor and outdoor capacitor, indoor and outdoor fan motors, and compressor amp readings.checked pressures. Tested unit. System operational.
The customer is selling the home, he just needs the system to be checked that it is operating properly. Checked over the heat pump system, it is working properly. Checked pressures and the filter. No issues to report at this time. The heat and the air conditioning does work. The smell when the emergency heat runs is just from some dust on the heat strips. Nothing to worry about.

System was thawed out upon arrival, tenant said it would work for a little then air would flow would drop dramatically, what was happening was coil was freezing over inside and blocking air flow, upon arrival checked pressures low side at 32 psi and high side at 132 SH 70 SC -2.3. Filter was changed last visit, all supply vents open, recharged system with 2 pounds 8.50 ounces, rechecked pressures 70/180 SH15.4, SC 11.8. Delta t at unit was 20 degrees, and inside home delta t at 17. Spoke with landlord who gave us the ok to do the repairs office has CC info for billing, also spoke to him about unit being obsolete so no guarantee on how long charge will last. Also checked joints what I could see with electronic leak detector which I did not find any leaks.

Customer was concerned about second floor not keeping up to temperature, second floor was 84 degrees yesterday, little air flow coming through vents due to plugged return filter replaced with 14x30x1 filter, went to condenser to check pressures 70/266 SH 3.5 SC 23. Everything looked good pressure wise, did noticed outdoor coil crumbling away unit is 21 years old, had a conversation with customer informing them about R22 products are obsolete, also customer turned system on in afternoon at peak of heat. Explained to set thermostat midway so it wonâ€™t work too hard on hot days. Customer is going to call at the end of aqua gust and schedule estimate for replacement of unit. Customer also signed up for maintenance agreement units havenâ€™t been serviced in awhile.
System was never turned off upon arrival very little air flow coming from vents but air handler working went outside to find condenser compressor frozen solid as well asl suction line, system is 23 years old with R22. Customer needs estimate for residential replacement customer is elderly and has no AC.
Coil and compressor completely frozen, turned AC off but left fan running to thaw out coil, also air filter completely plugged had a washable filter in unit, system sits on top of a low boy oil furnace system needs as much air as possible. Put a 30 day filter inside unit for now will need to be changed regularly. Told customer what to do if happens again in which we may need to come back out and asses situation of freezing up.
