Strongly advise anyone to do so who hasn't had their HVAC system serviced for the summer season.  Particularly the condensate drain, and particularly if the blower/coil resides in an attic.

I lost track of the time, it has been 4 years since mine leaked through the ceiling because someone had stepped on the edge of the galvanized overflow pan which bent it askew -- the blower/coil and return/outflow plenums block access through the attic, must crawl over the unit to get to the other side.

Made a mental note to check it, hadn't yet done so and this morning noticed dripping from the overflow outlet outside the house ... which serves as a visual indicator that the primary drain is clogged.  Leastwise I had reasonably straightened the pan at the last leak so it now didn't run over.

I recently had my 10 yr old Trane Heat pump serviced. It had never been serviced

since It was installed. Noticed that it was taking a while for it to reach set

temperature, so had it checked out, and I was low on R-22 and the inside expansion

valve was not working correctly, had that replaced and recharged. All is working

great now like the day it was installed. Im ready for the hot weather now. Im am

aware that the next time if it requires R-22, I'll have to upgrade to a new

system, due to R-22 will not be available by year 2020. My system is a 13 SEER,

2 1/2 ton unit.

been very happy with it, and the new systems out on the market are much more energy


Get your systems checked before it's too late!
