Put on 9-2011 It was running fine and we have contract for service. Man changed things and we had no air flow. called back out different one. Said we needed compressor saver kit. A surge protector. Our bill has been out of control since. We have done nothing different. ? is this is a variable speed unit 14 seer 4 ton. 18-BB34-D12 4WCY4-1G-12 Did we need the compressor saver kit? And surge protector? ?

Probably not the variable speed motor is actually a pulse DC motor so a surge protector is for electronic board safety not motor.
The no air flow is probably due to the motor controller losing program, it needs to be reprogrammed to the 4 ton blower or equal to 1600 CFM airflow.
