Leaking evap. pan!


In my opinion I would not but a goodama or any brand for that mater that was not meant for moblie home. Only two companys make moblie home equipment Coleman or Nordyne (nordyne makes many units (miller, brohan, intertherm ect..). Your moblie homes ductwork does not follow the rules of conventional systems. Equipment meant for moblie homes is designed to work with there ductwork. Moblie home ductwork is extremly small compaired to conventional ductwork.

My unit is an 04. My home is more of an advanced manufactured as it is complete drywall,2x6 exterior walls and such. I do know the ductwork is a flexible style with black plastic insulation if I remember correct from when I remodeled my bathroom. I want to say that the duct connecting to the register there, which is on the opposite end of the house and unit, was a 6"?

Yes - get estimates on equipment other than Goodman. Rheem/Ruud, Carrier/Bryant, Trane/American Standard - any of them would be a better choice, at least in my opinion.

AccuClean = CleanEffects. It's a great air cleaning system, but can get quite pricey.

The media filter is a somewhat new concept in air cleaning, in that is has long "tubes" that run through the media, and are energized by the electronics in it. The air passes through those chambers, and particles are trapped on the inside walls of those chambers. It supposedly has fairly low obstruction/resistance but high arrestance rates, which is a good thing.

It is pricey, however, and it does require annual maintenance to be effective.

Scott,

does'nt have a media section that is replaced and powered section that is cleaned? I put one in around 5-6 years ago when they first came out. Back then I was an American Standard dealer. People loss the home to the bank now it is vaccant never when back. I know they got recalled right after it was installed.

Could be thinking wrong, I put in one or two of Bryant versions of ultra air cleaner around the same time.

The new CleanEffects is fairly new, so it's probably different than when you were installing them.

There's a pre-filter which can be cleaned or replaced, the powered section that is cleaned, and the "cell" which is also cleaned and reused. The "cell" is the "media", and it's activated by the power section. It's the part that houses the long horizontal tubes. Air passes through those tubes (there are hundreds of them in the cell) and the particles are attracted to the walls of the cell. When needed, you remove the cell, clean it, dry it off, and reinstall. It's one of the best cleaners I've seen, but it is pricey.

Well got some estimates from another guy today.

$2000 just to replace coil and accumulator!

3 different brand options with a 13 and 14 seer from each.

Gibson
Frigidaire
American Standard

Thought the replacement of coil and accumulator was crazy. $522 to replace r22? DAMN
