    I bought a 6 year old house 1.5 years ago.
    The first heating season the ducts to my bedroom sounded like someone was playing the drums on them.

    I couldn't find the guidelines. I don't even see a 15kw, but the 17kw is $2,000 more; so I will pass on that.

    According to their website the 8kw uses 139cf/hour. A cf of NG is 1029 btu, so the...

    A website selling Generac said the 8kw will start a 3 ton A/C.
    I asked where they got that information and they said from Generac. As long as the LRA on my A/C was under 50, I was good.
    I looked...

  11. New York State building code for furnace venting?

    The inlet on my 2006 Trane furnace froze up. I found that the contractor installed the vent too close to the inlet, and didn't make the vent long enough; per Trane's installation instructions. He...

    Trane XR90 TUX80c942D Two pipes through the wall, the vent and the inlet. The inlet filled with ice and the furnace wouldn't fire. I don't know how long it was doing that before I noticed, but it...

    No, the inlet iced over as I said. How could the furnace evaporator ice over?

    I asked a simple question, does the furnace continue to try to start, or does it shut down after a while?
    You don't...
  14. Would a furnace with a blocked inlet shut down?

    A few days ago my Trane furnace stopped working because the inlet iced over.
    It took me an hour to figure out the problem, and it tried to start up over and over again.
    Would it do that forever,...

    What is a permanently closed window

    Venting instructions say that it must be 4' from a window that may open, and 1' from a permanently closed window. That is difficult because my windows are closer than 8' apart. Can I put a screw...

    Can you cite the code? I realize you are in Canada, but if 36" is required in Canada, then it is documentation that my 11" is inadequate. Maybe not illegal, but clearly improper.

    Is there an actual code that says you can't put vents under and overhang such as a deck, or they must be 36" from inside corners; or is it just a matter of common sense that they prevent proper...

    At present, the vent and inlet are under my deck. The inlet has twice picked up moisture from the vent, which has frozen and stopped the furnace. I have to go out every 8 hours to scrap.

  24. Don't understand about inlets and vents on furnaces; can someone explain?

    They seem very fussy about acceptable terminations on vents and inlets. Trane requires a vent coming straight out of the wall to be 12" min and 14" max. What would the harm be in running the vent...
