    We've been very happy with our 8T. We're going with a second system for my mom's house but using the correct Aspen coil and furnace combo was one of the very few ways to meet the EER number to...

    One other thing to take into account is a base price for gas. This varies by utility company but ours recently increased the base monthly charge and lowered the price per therm. Our only other gas...

    With the York 8T heat pump the stock coils easily meet the energy credit specs for HSPF and SEER. However the EER requirement is 12.5 and the best combination with a factory York coil is 12.3 (that's...

    We had the IAQ tstat installed. For our area it's a waste. That's one thing I like about the contractor that bid the system on my mom's house. We run the AC about 3 weeks a year in the pacific...

    Yep, that's the situation here. No $1500 credit no sale. We need to get all the rebates and credits possible to make this pencil out. If the Aspen is a good quality coil I don't really care if the...

    But even the top end 4 and 5 ton 2 stage residential units don't show the same efficiency numbers as some of the lower end single stage units made by the same company. I would expect that on the fans...

    Good to hear about Aspen quality. My contractor is looking into Mix-n-Match with a York HP to make the required numbers on a 4 ton unit of the federal tax credit. I know there's a debate over whether...

    GoGophers,
    What size (ton) heat pump are you looking at putting in?

    Mmm, that is even more pause for relief. We have a rental property on the same plot of land. This would mean that we can't apply any rebate associated with that to our residence. Actually sort of...

    This is from the ARI website. It answers the question about being able to claim a $1500 credit for a furnace and then again for a HP or AC. The answer is no, er' ah, probably not. You can only claim...

    Yep, I've been through this before. While I'm confident in the companies HVAC ability I don't expect them to be tax lawyers. If we get this worked out maybe I should ask for a commission on the extra...

    That's great news. Waiting for our HVAC contractor to hear back from the local York rep. Then we'll have to confirm that the thing actually fit's in the space we have available but it sounds like a...

    It's pretty darned hard to know. You've got to be a tax accountant, a lobbiest and an HVAC professional. Psychic would help too. Is it by tax year? Say for instance you replace an 80% gas furnace...

    Yes, the government specs do create an artificial incentive which probably doesn't make sense otherwise. Sometimes that's what's needed though to simulate a breakthrough. Just from a sales standpoint...

    What size? Do you have the AHRI certificate number. If you're over 3 ton I'd be very surprised to see the 5T make the requirements for the current $1500 stimulus. I'm not sure on this but I think...

    So I guess the answer is if you're going to the expense of putting in a water based heat exchanger then why bother with the air source heat exchanger?

    If I'm thinking this through correctly, in...

    It's not really a problem I guess. That's what we have and it works great. I guess it's sort of an artificial problem created by the government specs for the tax credit. The difference in efficiency...

    Why bother with the 98% furnace when you've got a HP. Look hard at how much of the heat it will actually supply (hopefully very little) and figure out how long the payback will be vs an 80%. A couple...

    No, that would be too expensive. I was thinking that if the heat exchanger was separate from the air mover you wouldn't be duplicating the fan and control logic. All you'd be adding is a large damper...

    It would be almost a miracle if all the stats were the same for you're exact equipment combination. Just because the advertising brochure claims 18 SEER it rarely works out that that's what you...
  21. Any gas heat exchangers "separate" from furnace

    Looking at the numbers for a heat pump with gas furnace I'm wondering if there are any furnace designs that allow the airflow to be split to either the coil or the heat exchanger. The constriction of...

    Or just leave it in the oven (turned off) at 160F for a few hours. If it dries out and doesn't work, warranty. "I don't know, it just suddenly stopped working," angel22
