    Heat pump not turning on

    This is extremely frustrating, as I've recently replaced my air handler and am now dealing with what appears to be major issues with my heat pump.

    Living in Montreal, where winters are harsh,...
  3. Shoot. I did ask here before I replaced the air...

    Shoot. I did ask here before I replaced the air handler, and some people said that the VS is more reliable while others said it was much more fragile. My installer's take on it was that, aside from...
  4. Thanks, George. I'll definitely run the fan full...

    Thanks, George. I'll definitely run the fan full time in the summer, when air conditioner, for de-humidification benefits, but during the winter heating season, it sounds like Auto is the way to go. ...
  5. Does keeping fan on "On" instead of "auto" make much of a difference in energy costs?

    Possibly a silly question, but I ask because I've heard that fans use the most energy upon starting up, so I wonder if keeping a blower's fan setting at "auto", which could see it starting and...
  6. Thanks. Do you find VS air handlers to be more...

    Thanks. Do you find VS air handlers to be more complicated to repair? Also, how significant would you say the reduction in operating costs might be?
  7. Are variable speed air handlers less reliable than multi-speed?

    About the replace my air handler and am considering a Goodman variable speed unit. My HVAC man is strongly advising that I go with a simpler Goodman MBR multi-speed unit instead of their variable...
  8. Thanks!

    Thanks!

    Long story short, the circuit board's been doing crazy things for the past two years (cutting power to the blower at random intervals in spite of it being set to "on", sticking relays so that...

    Mismatched system. Or not?

    I've currently got an all-York heat pump system. Am currently in a crunch that will force me to replace my air handler unit this week. I'll be keeping the old coil, compressor everything, and will...

    Ah. Does the Goodman MBR air handler unit have flimsier metal / build quality on the cabinet than what wold be the standard from other companies?
  12. I'll be keeping the existing coil. I'd assumed...

    I'll be keeping the existing coil. I'd assumed the various blowers on the market could have different noise levels based on their motors, fan type, insulation quality of the enclosure etc. Not so...

    Thanks. In the noisiness department, do you also find them to be more or less the same as any other good brand out there?
  14. Are Goodman air handlers particularly noisy?

    Hi everyone,

    Well, my 18-year-old York air handler needs to be replaced in a hurry (long story short, the board is beyond shot and is no reliable for providing aux heating a problem in a home with...
  15. Problem solved! It was the Precision setting in...

    Problem solved! It was the Precision setting in the dehumidification menu that was the cause. Whew. Thanks a ton, Martyinlincoln, you've saved me loads of stress, time and money. Much appreciated!
  16. Ah, it turns out that my dehumidify mode WAS set...

    Ah, it turns out that my dehumidify mode WAS set to precision! Just switched it to Basic to see if that evens things out. Thanks a bunch. I never would have thought of this as being a possible...
  17. My question is more about whether it makes sense...

    My question is more about whether it makes sense for the temperature to drift so dramatically now, and if there's a way to re-calibrate the thermostat so that it brings the room to set temps. I can...
  18. Anyone?

    Anyone?
  19. Lennox Signature Stat programmable thermostat acting strange

    Hi everyone,

    I've had a Lennox Signature Stat for about nine years now, and it's often been off by about .5-1 degree from whatever temperature has been set. Lately, it's been going off by up to...
  20. Actually, I'd be happy simply to buy a machine...

    Actually, I'd be happy simply to buy a machine that was built in the US or Canada and not China or Mexico. Hadn't realized that Lennox was based here in Canada!
  21. Thanks, everyone. I'll be sure to ask for a load...

    Thanks, everyone. I'll be sure to ask for a load calculation to be done. So far, it seems the company is sizing my home's needs based entirely on the capacity of the York unit that is already being...

    BTW, here in Montreal, I can't seem to find anyone that includes labour in their warranty. With the XP-14, I'd be getting 10-years on parts but I would need to spend an additional $ to get 10-years...
  23. Lennox XP-14 (is there a similarly priced system I'd be better off looking at?)

    I'm going to need to make a decision in the next week or so re: what system I'll be replacing my old York one with. This would be for both heating and air conditioning. I really don't know what to do...

    Is Lennox no longer a reliable brand?

    I will soon need to replace a 15+ year old York heat pump / air conditioner. I've been considering a Lennox XP14 system but checking out a furnace review site, I've read dozens and dozens of furious...

    I was afraid you would say that. :)

    That does make sense. Fingers crossed that they can send someone on Monday.
