It was a good news day.
After spending the better part of yesterday morning on the phone with American Standard, I found out that we actually have a 10-year warranty on our AC. After hearing this, I called the local American Standard dealer who charged us $500 for that AC fan install. Long story short . . . we were able to get the OEM fan installed (it’s better) and our bill reduced to under $200.
We’re also planning to install a Diversitech “voltage monitor” that will disconnect the power to the air conditioner if line voltage gets too low. The device is similar to Surge Guard or Progressive Industries units used for RVs.
