    With Honeywell Redlink, you can put the actual switching module in the furnace room and the wall thermostat anywhere in the house and they talk wirelessly on a private frequency. You would need one...

    Then there was the unit we were removing. It did have valves but they weren't closed. One guy inside a short fence handed me the unit on a fence post, before my helper and I could grab it, some...

    Most brands have a 17.5" 3 ton. Rheem does, match it with the RANL-JAZ outdoor unit and you get your pressure protection.

    Dang, forgot all about Amana. My memory is starting to go :(

    Looks like ThermoPride still is in their 95%. Their 80s are, gasp, Yorkies. Looks like they have a York 95% for those "budget minded".

    Seen way too many of these, namely with Rheem heat pumps as Rheem didn't believe in loss of charge switches in 10 SEER. And then all this work is going to make a horribly mismatched system try to...

    Quiets things down, lessens the shock on the reversing valve. With the higher pressures of 410 and the large quantities of refrigerant in today's high SEER units, it helps more than the strain. Mine...

    800 sq ft in the SE if you tighten it up sounds like a 1.5 ton HP and a 7kw heat strip.

    I suppose 2 stage 2 ton would work as well. 40K 95% furnace is way too big. I had my 2 stage 95% on low...

    Those aren't links, that's the AHRI rating of each outdoor unit. The XR15 has 1 point more SEER, .5 point more EER and HSPF so you are getting a slightly more efficient system. If there is a...

    That blower is likely 2 ton on low so you'd likely have to run the same speed for high & low if you get a 2 ton 2 stage. Then you won't dehumidfy real well on low stage moving too much air.
