    I have a newly installed AS VS 80 furnance and I can only hear the blower when I am in the same room with it or the one next to it (barely). In the main living area no noise at all. It is MUCH...

    That is a bit of a gross generalization. Right now in Richmond VA I am paying with all distribution charges included .067 kwh and 2.21 (as of December bill) per therm. If I did the math for my...

    Robo I just want to be clear I am not that impressed with AS advertising. I realize the constitutant components of either system are essentially the same. I work in the computer industry and...

    Yeah I like dual fuel, the house actually came with it. The current system is circa 1986 (same age as the house) with a newer outside unit.

    My location is central VA

    House size is 3600 square...

    Thanks for the replies. The noise I notice is from the furnace itself. While it is not bad, (there are two doors between the furnace and the real living area and a brick lined wall, you do notice...

    Thanks to lots of reading on this website I have found a great installer (mentioned on this site) who does a load calc, does superheat/subcooling for ensuring the right freon level and so forth.

    I have a heat pump with gas furnance back up circa 1986 (condesor unit is newer) and it is great. Best of both worlds. I live in Central VA.
  8. You are an absolute genius! I went out to clean...

    You are an absolute genius! I went out to clean the coils today (they weren't bad at all). While there I decided to look at the contactor. I may not know much about AC units or thermodynamics but...
  9. Shophound thanks. I guess I am on to tech number...

    Shophound thanks. I guess I am on to tech number three. They haven't done anything near that. Neither tech bothered to even look at the evaporator inside. No mention of coils or cleaning of coils...
  10. No hard start kit installed (at least since I...

    No hard start kit installed (at least since I have owned the house which is about two years). First tech said the problem was a "cracked valve" the second tech said "worn valves".
  11. It is a typical Trane with the spine fin coils...

    It is a typical Trane with the spine fin coils and I agree I need somebody to tell why it the compressor is failing. The problem is the two techs have not bothered to investigate or least to tell my...

    I agree for those sophisticated enough to know the heatpump gas combination is great. However those who understand are few and far between. I have tried to explain the advantages to a number of...
  13. I agree the heatpump compressor does work year...

    I agree the heatpump compressor does work year round but the secondary heat is gas and below 40 degrees or so it cuts over to the gas furnace so it doesn't see quite the use of a heatpump only...
  14. Yeah I think the one part old one part newer is...

    Yeah I think the one part old one part newer is my problem (or part at least). NIETHER Tech came into the house to look at the evaporator which amazes me (I believe that also means they could not...
  15. I appreciate the help I have gotten so far. I...

    I appreciate the help I have gotten so far. I had a Trane specailist come out today. He checked reserving valve and capacitor and came to the conclusion that the compressor is bad. Which is good...
  16. Hee hee, sorry about that :-). Cliff Notes...

    Hee hee, sorry about that :-). Cliff Notes version:

    1. Compressor doesn't always start with rest of system.
    2. Called tech.
    3. Tech comes, spends much time on cell with unknown party presumably...
  17. That was my opinion when I heard it was likely...

    That was my opinion when I heard it was likely bad but the tech appearhently didn't think it was worth doing ???. I am a strong believer in fixing problems earlier rather than later. Pay some now...
  18. Thanks guys! I was coming to that conclusion but...

    Thanks guys! I was coming to that conclusion but I wanted to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. I'll call another tech. I am assuming I should leave the AC off till we get it looked at? At least...

    Hi folks I need some input from the forum. This is my first posting though I have lurked here a while.

    Late last week I noticed that my downstairs AC (technical details provided a the end of...
