Are the heat pumps Package or Split System?
Are there actually 33 PTAC units?
Are you an EPA certified person( refrigerant )?
Here is my suggestion, break it down into manageable portions(ie one heat pump and a few PTAC units every other month) to keep from being overloaded.
Check/inspect electrical wiring and connections
Check amperage draw of compressors/motors
Check capacitance of start and run capacitors
Check contractors/relays for wear/pitting
Check refrigerant levels and record superheated/subcooling
Check external static pressures across air handler(s)
Check deltaT (return and supply air temps)
Lubricate motors( if applicable)
Inspect Belts/Pulleys( if applicable)
Clean outdoor coils
Clean indoor coils
Start there and HAVE FUN!!!
Home Inspecting reviews in Asheville
I greatly appreciated his time and expertise about the home and its 'needs'.
I felt like he provided a very thorough and balanced overview of the findings which allowed me to weigh the pros and cons of purchasing. I found the process easy, staff professional, and the service prompt and thorough.
He provided good information when he came out the first time. I was provided the different options for my house including the possible problems that can be encountered.
The area was in a snow storm the day he was supposed to come work, and he notified me in advance that it was unlikely he would be able to make our appointment. He came in anyway after the roads turned out to not be as bad as predicted.
During the install we discussed potential paths for routing the exhaust pipe, and his assistant provided the best idea which we ended up going with. I was very happy with the engagement on the issue which would have an effect on my use of the garage.
Overall I was very pleased. He was professional the entire time and I would easily recommend him to anyone.
I strongly recommend
