Recent Jobs For Zephyr Environmental Solutions

September 6, 2022 | Charlottesville, VA

We confirmed proper voltage and electrical connections and then checked unit operation - neither the outdoor fan nor the compressor started. We then visually confirmed a bad capacitor - the bulge at the top is a key tell. We replaced the capacitor, confirmed proper connections again and then tested the ...

July 18, 2022 | Charlottesville, VA

We familiarized ourselves with the system and the zoning controls. We then re-programmed the thermostats to remove the scheduling feature, which would override her set temperature and revert back to a factory standard. Michelle does not use the schedule feature so this was not a loss of functionality. We also ...

June 27, 2022 | Charlottesville, VA

In our evaluation, we discussed the failed indoor fan motor but also took into account system type, age and any other recent service and operational issues. Given the system type and age, we would expect at least another 5 years for this system, so we recommended to replace the motor vs ...

June 22, 2022 | Stanardsville, VA

Gary suspected that the older system had a leak and was not cooling as effectively as it had in the past. We washed the indoor and outdoor coils, checked and changed the outdoor capacitor, added refrigerant and a leak sealant (R-22 so we don't want to lose any!) and then ...

We installed a Daikin ductless mini-split to serve the bedroom. We used a SlimDuct lineset kit to protect the lineset from damage and UV light (it also makes it look good!). And we worked with the electrician to make sure the installation of our unit and his conduit was neat ...

February 2, 2022 | CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA

Despite our attempts to make repairs, the system would never function correctly. So we worked with our distributor and factory technical advisors to rule out systemic problems and identified the culprit as a faulty outdoor expansion valve. Given the unit's history of repairs and improper function, Zephyr replaced the outdoor ...

February 1, 2022 | Charlottesville, VA

We recovered the existing refrigerant, disconnected the electrical and refrigerant systems and made them safe for the project and then removed two outdoor units so that Pollard could dig a 15 foot pit and remove an underground oil tank and remediate the site. We returned after Pollard's work was complete to ...

November 24, 2021 | CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA

We installed two single head Mitsubishi ductless systems - one serving the kitchen area on the first floor and a second serving a bedroom on the second floor. These systems provide great heat output, easy operation and maintenance and great efficiency - perfect to make these spaces more comfortable and ...

March 4, 2021 | Earlysville, VA

On our follow up visit, we measured refrigerant pressures and compared them to manufacturer specifications for the indoor and outdoor conditions. Based on those, we determined that the system was undercharged. We added refrigerant until system conditions matched manufacturer specifications. We monitored system performance and returned it to service.

February 10, 2021 | Charlottesville, VA

Our visit to Steven's home was less about tools and more about looking, listening and poking around - a really scientific start! After he discussed the problem and showed me around, we started to really look for the how the duct system was designed and installed. Luckily he had photos ...

February 8, 2021 | Charlottesville, VA

    Over the course of several visits (yes, this boiler challenged us), we replaced a failed circulator pump, two thermal fuses, a pressure switch and a delay on make timer. We also completed a major cleaning of the heat exchanger and burners.  Why? We discovered that several isolation ...

October 9, 2020 | Free Union, VA

We completed a non-invasive inspection of two systems and provided reports that detail the types of systems, their age, any issues we noted for repair or further inspection, etc so that they can make an informed decision as buyers of the home. Per their request we also provided a proposal ...

October 1, 2020 | Palmyra, VA

We installed a new American Standard dual fuel, heat pump and furnace system. This combination allows them to benefit from the efficiency and comfort of both forms of heat depending on the outdoor temperatures. We also installed a Reme Halo air purifier and an Aprilaire Model 700 humidifier. During commissioning we ...

August 21, 2020 | Free Union, VA

During our diagnostic, we identified a faulty variable speed fan motor and a very dirty blower housing - likely construction dust. We recommended replacement of the motor and cleaning the blower housing as it must be removed to replace the motor, essentially a two-for-one. We completed the repairs with approval, ...

July 7, 2020 | Ruckersville, VA

We started by looking for ways to repair the system and offered an outdoor fan replacement as an option. We also noted that the system used R-22 refrigerant and was approaching 20 years old - much older than the expected lifespan of a heat pump in our area. At the client's ...
