Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on the three Hydronic Heating Coil Air Handler systems. Checked all Air Filters. Air Filters were all clean and in good condition. All of the Air Handlers are showing signs of Bacteria and Growth forming inside of them and on the Components/Wiring. The Hydronic Components for the Air Handler for the Lobby area have been disconnected so the Air Handler is not producing any Heat. That Area of the Building is maintaining a 70 Degree Temperature due to the Main Hydronic system which runs throughout the Building. The Gift Shop System is producing minimal Heat but is maintaining a 67-68 Degree Temperature. This system shares several of the Hydronic Components as the Lobby System. If the Heating in these areas becomes an issue, then further diagnostics will be needed. A small leak was noted on the Piping for the Gift Shop Hydronic System. We can provide pricing for repair if needed.

Performed Precision Heating Tune Ups on the all Gas Furnace systems for the Building. Checked Air Filters and replaced Filters as necessary. Combustion Levels for all Furnaces were within standard operating ratings. Was informed that the system which supplies the small Classroom was not working. Turned the Thermostat on to Heat to troubleshoot. Furnace will run upon initial start up but then after the Temperature in the room is satisfied it will not come back on after the call for Heat is needed again. Tested the Thermostat and found that the Thermostat is bad and not cycling the system properly. Recommend installing a new T6 Wifi Thermostat for the system and retesting operation. Further diagnostics may be needed if the system is still having issues. Also found the Thermostat for the Small Conference Room Area is working and cycling the system, but is not reading accurately. Thermostat has between a 2-4 Degree differnece between the actual Room temperature to what the Thermostat is re

Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on York Air Handler with Hydronic Heating Coil. Replaced the 16x20x1 Air Filter. The Return Register on the Return Box as well as well as the Register on the Hallway Wall were very dirty and dusty. Cleaned the Return Vents as best as possible, due to arrangement of Air Handler in the Closet it is very difficult to access and reach. Inspected Electrical Componts on Air Handler and put system in operation, measuring Supply and Return Air Temperatures.While performing Tune Up found that one area of the Piping is leaking Steam. The System was operating but was not in use upon arrival due to the apartment being vacant. This may seal itself as the system is used again, but if it continues to leak it will need to be repaired.

Arrived at the Residence to Perform Heating Tune Up on the Gas Fired Furnace. Shut system down and removed Burner Plate to inspect the Burners and Heat Exchanger. Noticed something irregular on the 2nd Heat Exchanger Chamber. Closer inspection revealed that there was a significant crack along the Chamber Wall. Inspected the remaining Chambers and found a similar crack on the wall of Chamber 5. Performed Smoke Test on Furnace. Chamber 2 Failed the Smoke Test, but the remaining sections passed. Turned Heat on and performed a Combustion Analysis. Combustion Levels were within safe levels at this time. Due to the overall condition of the Furnace, it is not recommended to operate. Turned the Gas Supply off and Pilot Light off to the Furnace. Turned Power off to the Furnace at the Switch on the Unit.We will follow up with Pricing and Availability to replace the Furnace.

Scheduled service to install a new T6 Wifi Thermostat per Corey. The Heat is having issues with not Turning off and melting some of the food products In the store. Spoke with Mike about issue with the Store Room. The System was currently set to AC and 75 Degrees so that the Heat will not run. Turned Power off to the Air Handler and installed a T6 Wifi Thermostat. Went through Programming on Thermostat and tested operation. System is still experiencing a Control and is still not working properly. Need to return to further diagnose the system and pinpoint Control Issue. Thermostat is not connected to the Wifi/Internet. Turned System off at the Thermostat until we can further diagnose. The store room is maintaining about 69 Degrees without the system on.Do not recommend operating System until further diagnostics can be made.User Manuals for the new Thermostat along with the old Thermostat are on top of the Air Handler.

Service call that the Unit which supplies the Lobby area was not working. Spoke to Mike upon arriving onsite who informed me that the Blower Motor was making a lot of noise and the unit was not lighting so he shut the unit down. Inspected system and found that the Squirrel Cage for the Blower Motor was broken apart which caused the Blower Motor to become unbalanced and uncentered. Removed the entire Blower Motor Assembly from the Unit. Called Manufacturer to get pricing and availability on a new Motor with Squirrel Cage. It is highly recommended to replace both the Motor and the Motor Wheel at the same time due to its present state. Was not able to test the operation of the system. After the Motor and Wheel are replaced we can then test Operation of the unit. There may be additional repairs needed if the system still does not run.

Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Gas Fired Furnace. Replaced the 16x25x1 Air Filter. The Blower a Cabinet was dirty, but there was a Fiber-Glass Mesh Filter in place. Installed a Pleated Filter that was available. Recommend using the Pleated Style Filter to help capture the excess dirt/dust. Found Water collecting under the Draft Inducer Motor and Tubing Drain Line. Initially it appeared to be originating from the Drain Tubing, but after running the system it is coming from the bottom of the Inducer Motor. Replacement of the Draft Inducer Motor is recommended to stop this leaking. Performed Combustion Analysis on Furnace.

Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Gas Fired Boiler. Found interior of Boiler area was heavily rusted. The Burner Plate was very rusted and I could not properly removed the Burner plate to access the Ignition Assembly. Inspected the Top of the Heat Exchanger which is very rusted and corroded around the Main Supply Piping at the Boiler. No water or wet rust was found during inspection. This could be an indication that there is a leak somewhere on the Heat Exchanger which is causing the rust and corrosion. The Rollout Switch for the Burner is very rusted. I was unable to remove that while trying to remove the Burner Plate. Combustion Levels were to standards at this time. To remove the Burner plate to access the Bunrers and Ignition Assembly the Rollout Switch may be damaged due to the Corrosion and rust. Would recommend replacement of that Rollout Witch to avoid any issues.

Performed Precision Heating Tune Up on Gas Fired Boiler. While completing Tune Up procedures, found several issues with the Boiler. While checking the Gas Piping for leaks, found the Pilot Tubing was leaking at the Gas Valve. The Tubing was very difficult to remove and was very difficult to rethread into the Gas Valve due to being cross-threaded. The Tubing was still leaking and attempted to removing the Tubing again to replace. Was unable to remove the Pilot Tubing from the Gas Valv due to being cross-threaded. Spoke with Cory and Mike about issue who gave approval to replace the Gas Valve and Pilot Tubing.
