Question about Goodman CKL49AR49 Air Conditioner
My house inspector for a potential home purchase in checking the Goodman A49-20 unit said it was too slow/inadequate heating. It's the middle of summer and the house has been vacant for a year. After checking the A/C for a while he set the thermostat to force the back-up (sub 30deg) heating system on and said it should rather quickly start putting out 90-95 degree air...and also that an initial smell from heating coils was likely. Well, there was no smell and the air flowing from the vents after 15 minutes was still only 80-85deg. Was my inspector correct in that the heating coils should have kicked in and blown 90+deg air or does this system "know" that it's 80deg outside and won't heat the coils no matter what? Also, if it is a problem, what is likely to be the cause and remedy?
Your home inspector is bonded and required to stand behind his work. That being said, it appears that your heating unit is inadequate. Therefore, you should tell your realtor that you want a new heating system installed as part of the sale.
Call your inspector and ask him how you should proceed. You hired him to work for you and give you sound technical advise. If he is not doing these things for you, call an attorney.
