Question DetailsAsked on 6/29/2017

I have a brand new GOODMAN air conditioner that now needs a evap coil and refrigerant...what should I do?

Goodman model# GSZ140361KD , brand new install. Kenmore Powermiser 9 waterheater/pump. We were told that a minor change in the pump unit should be compatible with the new air conditioner. Obviously not as we are now with no air and I am out of $2800 and not sure if I can afford the fix.

Hopefully that was put in writing - in which case wothhold final payment if not already made, and demand they make it function as promised.


Actually, I don't see how what you mean about the water heater heat pump being compatible with the air conditioner - I can't visualize how the two could be viably linked together, plus doing so would undoubtedly violate the warranty on the water heater, and invalidate its energy rating. I guess MAYBE (though I suspect it might result in heat pump overheating) one could use the waste heat from the A/C condensor as input heat to the water heater, but sounds like a Rube Goldberg arrangement to me. This sort of thing is done in commercial buildings to preheat domestic hot water using waste heat from the HVAC system,, but that is done through specifically designed heat exchanger systems, not with off-the-shelf units.
