I called Perkins climate Control for an estimate for a new AC/heat system for my house. The current unit I have now is 21 years old. The system runs well and cools the house well. The problem is when the system turns on the electric meter turns so fast you can not see it move. He asked me what problems I had with the old system, and I explained the electrical problem. He helped me troubleshoot the electric.
We turned off the main circuit breaker, and the meter stopped turning. We then turned on one breaker at a time. When I turned on one of the 220 breakers, the meter started spinning fast. After turning on all of the breakers, we turned off the one that made the meter start spinning fast. I went in the house, and everything was working. We determined that a relay was bad on the heating unit. A service tech came replaced the relay, and now my electric bill dropped about 50%. I will always call Perkins Climate Control for any heating or A/C issues or replacement of system!
