    Hello all, in need of some much needed help. I have a 3 ton Aireflo unit that has been acting up. I had the unit recharged recently due to an on going known leak in the coil in the attic. The tech recharged the unit and all was well for 2-3 weeks. However now, I have noticed that while it is...

    I have a well for my home water supply. The water pressure and supply have been fine for the last 10-years (the house is 12-years old). Yesterday, I turned on the lawn sprinkler and my daughter was taking a shower at the same time. I noticed very low pressure when I then turned on a faucet. I...

    I have a Carrier Heat Pump. When in heating mode, the thermostat clicks to turn the heat on, and the blower starts blowing.
