I posted on this site a few months ago regarding my Whole House Air Unit. We had new furnace/air installed 11/7/09 and have had nothing but problems since. The company has been back numerous times; last time they put in a new motor because the old one sounder like a helicopter was taking off in my basement. They contact the company/maker and they sent them new inners. All replaced about two weeks ago and the noise started again; worse this time. Now today, running the air and the temp in house started going up; not working again. I was advised when this all started to be nice; get more results from installer when nicer. Well we have been around and around since November; what next???

I'm not sure what you mean by "Whole House Air Unit".

Is this a split system? In other words, do you have a condensing unit outside and a furnace/air handler in the house?

Most furnaces built within the last 10 years have at least a 5 year warranty on all parts and usually one year warranty on labor (more if you have an extended service plan).

I would be calling the owner of the installing company and getting them to repair it. If what they fixed before is already broken it should be covered under warranty.

I'd be done being nice.

Could be. But I was too lazy today to look.

After reading the previous thread it appears that the HVAC tech isn't very proficient.

It sounds like there was a refrigerant leak and instead of finding and repairing it he just dumped in some more refrigerant and gave some story about a "blood clot" in the lines.

Now it's not cooling again and you are having a noise in the blower cabinet again, after having it fixed once?
