For three years my Bryant 582 Gaspack has worked minimally. Then one day after paying $300 electric bills I decided to see if the unit was really working or not. When I felt the register cool air was coming out, but just barely. So I started thinking...maybe "I have duct issues down in my crawlspace?
" My ten year old Son and I went down in the crawlspace wearing those zip up hooded hazmat suits and spent an hour down there working with the shinny duct tape. After an hour we had located and repaired 5 very large holes. (We suspect that an electrician that we hired absent mindedly made these holes while spendnig the better part of a week down in the crawlspace three years ago)
Anyway.... that was about a month ago and the AC has been working flawlessly for the first time in years.
Then last week...NO AC!
I took the cover off the AC unit and the coils had frozen solid!
Powered down the unit at theb thermostat. Changed the filter and opened some registers and refired it up after the ice melted.
It worked! But...only for two days!
Now when I go back out to the unit...the blower inside the unit stays on even when I have turned it off at the thermostat.
