    That is a very dangerous situation. They usually end up as an item on the local evening news when the entire house blows up.

    I had a similar problem in a prior house and we had it fixed...

    I would say go with the Evolution/variable speed furnace. It will cost more will be very flexible and should be quieter in operation most of the time.

    For what system?

    For what kind of furnace? For example, I have Bryant systems for my home and had Thermidistats installed since it was a good match to the equipment (sold by the same company.)

    There are good architects and hack architects, just like there are good and hack installers. A willingness to learn is essential to be skilled in all the trades - and sadly, not everyone wants to.

    Flex? Ugh! I'd insist on sheetmetal -- especially for the return. Flex does not hold up well over time.

    All-

    I have what I hope is a simple question. I received a proposal from a company to install a new Thermidistat for my 2nd floor zone, which is a Bryant 697C and FK4CNF002 air handler.

    It may sound hokey, but "that's the life of a technician" if you're willing to make it be that way." Management will let you keep doing this until YOU tell them you won't. Since they're pocketing...

    You should leave as much net free area as the return has. For example, I have a 20x20 return (400 sq inches) on my 1srt flr. You should leave at least the equivalent of that in free space for the...

    Oops!

    My error - the FK4C is paired with the 697C.

    Thanks for the help... dash, it sounds like we'd get more from the FK4C/697C combo having a Thermidistat because of the variable speed capabilities of...

    Hi there,

    Round is more effecient than oval, and the ideal shape in theory, but a well designed system is a well designed system, and takes the friction difference between the two into account.

    Well done!

    All I can say as a homeowner is that I wish everyone could follow your example in this case. Good professionals are needed, and good customers understand that. This one was worth losing!
