"You wanted and got answers, so why are you complaining?"
Because you started spouting off about "horse's pituties" while acting like one.
Moderator...just go ahead and remove me from your...

You caught me big guy. I did not read the forum rules until now. I think this rule is the one that's being violated here:
"HVAC Pros, please note; home owners are welcome to ask questions here,...

I may not have described the unit too well. The sump holds maybe 2 ounces of water. The overflow sump another 2 ounces. Here's the manufacturer's page:

Based on the encouragement I got to install a humidifier in our dry home (forced air heating), we had an Aprilaire 400 installed. That's the one with the little sump and float switches...
Maybe you really are God's gift to HVAC...but I'd fire you before breakfast. Didn't you say you were leaving?
You couldn't hold my HVAC guy's jockstrap. He'd likely take...
It has a Watts 911sA which as you all know is a combination fill valve and backflow preventer. I was finally able to reach NTI and all they said was "anit-freeze is not necessary". Oddly enough,...
Thanks Cap'n. Don't let the door hit you in your ass on your way out of this post.
Sorry Cap'n Jack, but this thing doesn't heat the domestic water. She's just for heating the floors. The makeup water feeds through a backflow preventer.
Also, I'm not thinking about getting a...
What's the thoughts on anti-freeze? I know in a car's coolant system, anti-freeze inhibits corrosion and is thus recommended even in...

Wow. I got more different opinions than the time I went on a car detailing site and asked the best way to restore the paint on an old car!
Seems like there's a lot of right...

Your right John,
I should have listed the domestic water heating requirements:
1. Washing machine (standard size)
2. Laundry sink
3. bathroom sink
4. Guest shower (shower stall with...

Please amend my earlier post to include:
Helpful response appreciated very much, but please keep all sarcastic jabberwocky to yourself, as I'm in no mood for it.

Thanks for the earlier responses on hydronic vs forced air heat for my home addition. Based on everyone's responses, I've told my builder (who's drawing up plans) to plan on hydronic...

I'm working with a contractor to develop a plan for an addition to my home. The addition will include a 300 sq ft breezeway and a 2 story oversize 3 car garage with a bonus room over...

Hmmm...seems like you were more comfortable with the first guy. Maybe you should go with him.
Also, although I'm no expert, I know on my recent HVAC purchase the extended warantee was an optional...

It's 3-tons. I actually downsized the furnace from the old 80+ Heil 125,000 BTU unit it replaced.
Where can I learn about accoustically insulating the ducts? That sounds like what I need to do....

It's just the noise of the air moving in the plenum. The ducts in the family room are only a few feet long...so that's where it is kind of annoying.
I guess I should say that I've had the fan...

We recently installed one of those Heil 100,000BTU furnaces with the DC fan motor. It's got 3 dip switches to set fan speed during A/C calls. It's set to the recommended speed (1 less...

Thanks alot for the advice. I'll go ahead and get that humidifier...at least before next heating season.
BTW...the reason I went into such detail was to explain WHY against all available evidence...

I want to tell you about my best friend's dad. His name was Bill.
Now, the only reason I ever got to know Bill was that from Kindergarten through Highschool I was best friends with...

I appreciate what you are saying.
I'm a little better off than the worst offenders because I am fortunate to have two guys working for me that I hired away from HVAC work. One did it for 15...

Hey everyone...thanks for the information.
Regarding the 4 ton thing...I have no idea WHY I think it's a 4-ton unit. That's just what I've had in the back of my mind. The only thing I've ever...

Cool forum. I did a search but couldn't find a real good answer to my questions. Here's my story. About 8 years ago I bought an old (1918) farmhouse (2100 sf 2-story) in southern...
