Question about Goodman CKL49AR49 Air Conditioner

Back up system inadequate?

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.

I have a Goodman GSC130361DE it is too small for a 2100sq ft home

Well you have a 3 ton system, it might be a tick small depending on windows and insulation in the house. Make sure you set it at one temp and leave it. Zoneing would also help.

Moved into a new house with a goodman air conditioner. it is also the heater (?). No experience with this. Is there something we need to do when switching from air conditioning to heating? we turned it to...

Well it might be a heatpump. Where it uses the A/C portion of the system to draw heat from out side and place it into you home. If its a new home I would call for a Check-Up its only $60 to $80. But dont buy anything you dont need like a new thermostat. Just tell them to check the refrigernt levels and to tell you if everything is runing ok.

Purchased Goodman 5 ton unit in 2007. The problem we are having is: When you turn the unit on and set it at 76deg. the temp states on the controller it set at 81 deg in the house, BUT it would not cool...

Your system could have lost its refrigerant charge through a leak. Check for visual signs of oil at any soldered joints. This would indicate a leak at a point where some oil is visible. Also check for frost on the big line that returns to the outside unit. If frost is present set you air circulation fan to the on position and turn the cooling to off. Allow the air to circulate for about an hour. Then return the system to the cooling mode. Operate the system when cooling with the fan in the on position in this case.

Is this an older gas heat unit? If so, you may have a burnt out heat exchanger, this can be dangerous.
