I live in a 28-unit condominium with a dry system that we agreed to have the valve & compressor replaced in September 2020. The previous system's air compressor ran 2 times every 24 hrs for 16 mins. The new air compressor ran every 4 minutes for 8 seconds & was very loud in an enclosed room. This new air compressor quit after 90 days & breaking at 2 separate times on the copper lines.
How can we cut down the noise and make repairs?
As of today (March 2021), we have had a Cobalt compressor running in place of the general compressor that quit. The Cobalt runs every 70 minutes for 2.5 minutes. We are constantly told by contractor we have a leak somewhere that needs to be addressed, that we don’t doubt. We have cut the air off for a leak check, 2.5 hrs 2 lbs down.
I know this lengthy but I need some advice how to cut down noise and repairs. Thanks for any help.
