i was in johnstaone supply this week, by the cashier office they had an ad by envirotemp looking for help
I have had 2 units in an attic.
1st one I used Ductboard to make a box for the condensate pump to sit in.
And wrapped the tube from there with foil back insulation.
The second I had a 1" pvc line...
I checked on the cost and operations difference between the 15 & 18
I'll save the cost difference in 3 yrs of operations.
Go with the Variable speed drive air handler
It's a closed system.
the refrigerant doesn't know or care what direction it's going.
It has to change state in 2 locations.
As long as the charge is correct it will change at those locactions,...
Some of the water coils wood heaters around here have been installed in the return air,
I have had to move the ones I have seen do to the hot coils tripping limit switchs in the furnace.
On the out door circuit board there is a pin for the defrost cycle timing.
Below those setting is a pin for compressor cycling.
On the XP-15 that pin needs to be in place,
On the XP-13 that pin...
I know Lennox will run the H/P in heat for 1st stage but it has a sensor that will switch to 2 nd stage at a given outdoor temp.
And I think that temp is around 45*,
so they don't get much...
I used to wear those long dish gloves.
But now I wear those rubber doctor gloves.
I have a 1 gal plastic ice cream container that I keep old oil filters and gloves in. Keep the lid on the tube...
Why would they install the coil that direction ?
isn't the other end supposed to be on the furnce.
That could be why the gap is present.
The opening is away from the blower so the air is hitting...
BINGO,,,,, That matched VS air handler will have the correct TXV already installed. If it's a H/P it will need a few minor wire changes made inside the indoor unit as well.
Thanks for all the info guy's.
More neah's then yeah's says alot. To much to ignore, in fact.
I'll have to let this one slide it seems.
My area is very Very limited on employment.
We have lost 4 factory's in 8 months
School levys continue to fail.
People here aren't buying units, cutting back on maintaining equipment.
you sound like you have been burned once or twice

Now just trying to...
My original question is to see how other large outfits allow for stock.
I'm not worried about the equipment out there.
I thought it sounds odd to send a truck 2hrs out of town with little to...
Would think you would have to pick up extras along the way.
On the basics at least.
Contactors, capacitors, transformers, relays. motors, fuses.
I just can't see running a truck without stock....
Would be home every day.
They say to give me an automatic 40 hrs would mean I'm salary.
So they say 38.
Just seems like alot of waisted time. I want to fix what I find wrong , when I find it....
I'm looking at joining a service company that is nation wide.
From what I was told by another guy who looked into this outfit, They don't have much or any truck stock.
They don't have company...
rule of thumb is not good.
Some thumbs are different from others
So which should I go with ?
Haven't you been reading the responses.
If your worried about the $400 more then cut back on a couple outlets .
Lennox has been the direction you been given, listen...
Just adding some input,
In your area, if you go with 2stg H/P.
It will run most of the winter in 2nd stage anyway.
You'll get your 2 stage operation best in the A/C mode.
So is it worth...
Leave unit as it is.
Set new unit on top of it,
cut lineset repipe to new unit. Same with electric.
now it's where you can work on it in the future.
Til the brick layer adds to...
The match up is more critical with the coils in the heatpump set up.
some heatpumps require a slightly bigger indoor coil during the heat mode, when going with R410a.
But still a good point to...
I have installed the XP19 with the CBX32MV fan coil.
and controlling it with the Lennox 51m37 stat.
One thing the book doesn't tell you is, there is an outside air sensor that will over ride the...
This should be in the pro section.
You never mentioned the amount of heat this unit has.
Heatstrips, heat pump etc.
Were all the elements coming on. was the pump running.
With the stat set @ 75...
I don't see how the blower on this can be any more Eff.
Both units are variable speed drive blowers.
The only thing to use less energy is someone waving their hand in the air with a paddle.
I might not have as many posts here as others, but that doesn't make me an idiot. ;)[/QUOTE]
I didn't think you were an idiot.
So again light'n up
You have to understand whats writen on my...

I'd say until the contractor comes on here and gives his side. All people can do is speculate. And coment on the info given.
We know that H/O'ers tend to leave alot out of the conversation.
what's is your position in the field if any.
Why are you tired of saleman doing what they are paid to do ?
it will not hurt the home,
But it will hurt the H/O'er
He may have over paid for the the wrong equipment to provide his comfort.
And the 2nd part,
Wouldn't the 1st step on the ladder be...
Can you go to a local beer distributor,
who sales kegs for parties.
Take the measurements you have to work with.
Ask them if they can direct you to somewhere to by a cooler

Someone here is trying run before they can crawl.
I had to by-pass the plug on the unit giving me trouble
Or molex connector pin terminals are not making contact on the sensing circuit. Had that about 2 weeks ago.
I believe here in Ohio,
the first 3' of the ductwork is to be treated like the plenum, and there for would have to have the same clearences that the plenum has. Atleast 1" to combustables.
2 things come to mind, depending on the run cycle.
1) If the cycles is only seconds, Your flame rectification device has developed a rectification sensing failure. due to oxides formed on the...
would the moisture content from the steam cause harm to the elements ?
Your thoughts on adding a humidifier to an Electric furnace with heat pump ?
I wouldn't think it would evaporate as much, there for not work as well as if it were on gas or oil.
You really should have a service tech take a look.
If you try the fix it yourself and make matters worse,
then will be paying more for the repair. And right now you have some heat,
screw it up...
Atleast he is alive to be pissed off.
Whats better pissed off and alive,
Or happy and dead ?
Anytime you can wake up not dead, it's a good thing.
So he has to snuggle with the wife 1 night,...
I'd interested in talking with someone about coming down and help out.
I wouldn't say the problem was with the solder.
I use stay-brite 95-5, no problems.
Why would some run a heat pump in the heating mode,
on a 72* day and walk away ?
Check in the a/c mode,...
This is a different type of heat from what your used to,
Is your house total Electric ?
If so some electrical suppliers still offer total electric rates.
If you are total electric, call your...
Stay in the field long enough you'll find plenty to rattle the brain
Why would anyone try a new control board when a direct wire to the inducer was isntalled and the motor ran ?
