    Shoot. It's definitely a corner placement, but I don't think that could have been avoided. My old York was installed in that exact place, and the lines are running from there. The installer never...

    Thanks, guys. Pushing in against one part of the side panel stops the sound (good call, Mr Bill), but the rhythmic pulses can be felt as I push on it. Could it just be that the side panel is slightly...

    Could someone give a listen to the noise on the video and let me know your thoughts? I'm hoping the rhythmically vibrating hum isn't cause for concern, but as I just heard it making this noise today...
  4. As temps have risen, new XP14 has started making a rhythmic vibratory sound

    Is this something that happens from time to time as outdoor temps change or is it cause for investigation?

    I shot a brief video clip to illustrate the noise. Today is the first time I've heard it...

    Teddy, thanks so much for the above. That is one the most informative and amazing posts I've ever read.

    As temps have risen outside and the compressor's running longer, humidity hasn't been as...

    I know, it's really got me baffled that there can be such discrepancies from one gauge to the next. Meanwhile, when it comes to temperature, they're all reading exactly the same. In a worse case, the...

    Update: I bought an AcuRite humidity monitor (model #00309) and it's reading 4-5% lower than the Honeywell monitor. The Dehumidifier's reader is between the two.

    The more elaborate pro reader...

    Ah, that could explain things! I'm unsure of the SEER rating on the old system but it was around 20 years old, likely older.

    What do you make of the P-trap photos I posted earlier? Could that be...

    Interesting. It's odd, though, as the York system I just replaced never had a problem keeping RH below 50.

    Just noticed something as I was snooping around the air handler. I shone a flashlight on the P Trap, which I never really looked at for more than a moment when the system was installed last month...

    Will do.

    System is currently giving me 55% RH at a cooling temp of 18 (if I can trust both gauges here). Notably higher than my 20-year+ old system, but could this be within a normal range?

    Thanks, Darrell. Now that they sent over a tech, who inspected the system and gave it a clean bill of health, with a note on the paperwork showing that his humidity reader found no issues with...

    So far, there's not been much of a difference. It may just be that the system hasn't needed to do much cooling to maintain temps in the period since the tech was here, thus not giving much chance for...

    So, tech was here, took some readings and, oddly enough, his professionally calibrated humidity reader (not sure of the technical term - an elongated, yellow piece of equipment), was reading a full...

    Will do. Technician's scheduled to come by on Wednesday. Hopefully this can be resolved with a proper change of fan speed.

    What I find odd is that the current fan speeds were determined by...

    I wouldn't dare try to adjust the blower speed myself. I'd have no idea what I'd be doing It definitely wouldn't be a wise move. Now that I know this is something the installing company could fix,...
  18. Thanks, guys. I hadn't realized this was...

    Thanks, guys. I hadn't realized this was specifically the kind of issue I should be calling the installers back over. I believe they took readings before setting the fan speeds, so I'd assumed it...
  19. Lennox CBX27 dehumidification - does the relay kit make a major difference?

    Hi everyone,

    Since replacing my very old York system with a CBX27 and XP14 setup a few weeks ago, I've been seeing notably higher humidity levels (I used to have around 46% RH when my cooling was...
  20. Perfect. Thanks!

    Perfect. Thanks!
  21. Great! Is there a way to use the Prestige...

    Great! Is there a way to use the Prestige without an EIM? I'd heard not, but I can't imagine there isn't an option to hardwire it to the heat pump and air handler like a traditional stat and simply...
  22. I know I'm probably being a bit of a luddite...

    I know I'm probably being a bit of a luddite about it, but relying exclusively on wireless tech for something as critical as my heating system is something I'm really not comfortable with. I'd feel...

    Very cool. Do you know if this is the same with the Prestige units?
  24. Also, I meant to ask, could the VisionPro 800...

    Also, I meant to ask, could the VisionPro 800 perform any sort of dehumidification when paired with a Lennox CBX 27 air handler, or is that only possible with Lennox stats?
  25. Possible to use a VisionPro 8000 stat with outdoor temp sensor without the EIM?

    Looks like I'm going to go with the VisionPro 8000 over the Prestige so as to avoid being stuck with a stat that can only communicate with my equipment wirelessly, as is apparently the case with the...
  26. Thanks, guys. Relieved to know that the padding...

    Thanks, guys. Relieved to know that the padding will at least last, but now I'm freaked out about the angle of the supports. It seemed fine looking at it and the installer was confidant that it's...
  27. Installer placed rubber pads beneath XP14 to fit it onto elevated bracket

    Hi Everyone,

    Could I get some feedback on this? When my XP14 was installed last week, the installers placed what appears to be rubber padding beneath the feet so that it would be secured to the...

    Thanks, Doug. I'd have thought (hoped) that Lennox's own HC16 filter would be designed to work well with their modern air handlers.

    The air flow itself doesn't seem noticeably different, but it...
  29. Air handler seems slightly noisier with HC16 carbon filter?

    I've only had my CBX27 for several days now, and I'm loving it. A few hours ago, I put in a Healthy Climate 16 filter (replacing the generic Merv 10 one that came with the HC10 cabinet that was...
  30. Thanks, everyone. I think I'm going to go for a...

    Thanks, everyone. I think I'm going to go for a Prestige (though I would have preferred to avoid a RedLink setup if possible). The Pro8000 looks like a great stat as well, but I figure if I'm going...
  31. Another thing that Signature Stat had that the...

    Another thing that Signature Stat had that the Honeywell's lacking - the ability to display precise temps - for example, 20.7 as opposed to a rounded off number.
  32. What modern thermostat has the features of the old Lennox Signature Stat?

    My newly installed system came with a Honeywell FocusPro 6000 stat. For the last 12 years or so, I've controlled my system with a Lennox Signature Stat, which has been mostly terrific, but froze...
  33. Just a quick update: system is up and running and...

    Just a quick update: system is up and running and everything's working beautifully. Zero discernible movement or vibration and no rattling - in fact, this is an unbelievably quiet system. I'm very...

    Thanks for that. I'll ask. They didn't quote a new breaker, but I can't imagine the situation wasn't considered.

    Super über!

    Yep, the lines are apparently-sized correctly, thankfully. New unit's a 2-ton, replacing a (very) old 2-ton.

    Oh shoot, yes, that's what I meant. Call me uber newbie. :)
  37. Great! They seem to be in great shape, despite...

    Great! They seem to be in great shape, despite their age. When I wrote R44, I meant a line that's been used to carry the old R44 refrigerant.
  38. Tech is about to wash old R44 line instead of installing new line for new system

    Happening right now. Due to extensive cables being bundled against the line (I posted photos of this the other day), the tech doesn't want to replace the old R44 line and says that the install can be...
  39. Whew, that's a release. Thanks a bunch for your...

    Whew, that's a release. Thanks a bunch for your input, everyone. Hopefully I've been over-worrying. Tech arrives in 30 min to install the outdoor unit, run the new lines and connect everything!

    Here's a 20-second video to illustrate the extent of the wobbliness (the sound of the fan that can be heard in the background is a large floor fan keeping the place cool-ish while I wait for the...

    Indeed. I worry, though, as I can make it wobble just by pushing it with my finger.

    Once the blower's running and the line's connected, will that kind of constant movement during operation put...
  42. Photos of today's tight closet air handler instal - slight wobble when pushed against

    Work was done carefully. They ended up needing to install the CBX27 with airflow coming up from the bottom, and you can see what they did in the photos. Looks clean but I just noticed that where my...
  43. Installer used hard cast vinyl flex in plenum - safe for a heating system?

    So, Day 1 of my instal has been completed (consisted of changing out air handler and modifying plenum and ducting), and the job was done clean and carefully.

    The only thing that gives me pause is...

    Bundled cables on refrigerant line

    As I excitedly await Tuesday's instal of a modern high efficiency heat pump system, I wanted to gauge what peoples' thoughts are on the subject of bundling cables to a line?

    The photo below...
  48. Sorry for not getting back to this thread sooner....

    Sorry for not getting back to this thread sooner. I greatly appreciate the input everyone gave me.

    In the end, my installer offered me a great deal on a very efficient package that was too good to...
  49. Does the Lennox iComfort stat indicate when Aux heat is in use?

    Having a new XP14 installed next week and am considering replacing my old stat with an iComfort, but looking at the various screens online, there doesn't appear to be anything that indicates when...

    I've been considering that, Mike. The reason I didn't go that way in the first place is because I've heard that Goodman's fine for air handlers, but I'd be better off with something more refined for...
