Hmm. I think you are confusing your boiler with a furnace.
You can keep your boiler and just get central ac.
Or if you got a heat pump it would be forced hot air
going through the same ducts....

If you went with The Acadia yes the furnace would be swapped out for an air handler.
That said ,we're not alays big fans of leaving a furnace when you add air conditioning - even if you stay with...

as a homeowner with oil another option you might research is cold weather heat pump(The Acadia)/ac installations. there are a decent amount in morris county due to the lack of natural gas

Is the self-purging that drives the cost up?
Or is that ewc humidifiers are extremely efficient with
water and electric and will eventually pay purchaser back?

Truesteam seems impressive.
Any opinion of the EWC humidifiers?

If we could drop the rocket science for a sec so I could understand,
are you saying you advocate a model like the Aprilaire 400
that claims to conserve water use?
I'm trying to figure out...
Does the camera rotbrush sells have the ability to
show before and after pics? If it does, then can't one see
if their ducts are cleaner?

We have been installing Acadias in NJ. Good feedback to this point.
The Acadia begins to use electric resistance at 10 degrees,
mostly for defrost mode at that temp. I believe it increases from there and is not in full electric backup mode until -15. It is also...
only thing jw is to what low temperature does the carrier system efficiently go?
It's my understanding that the electric strips have to kick in between 30-40
degrees with Carrier . If that's the...
Have you had a load calc done on your home?
There is always the chance your 5 ton system is oversized.
I have installed a 4 ton Acadia system on a home that previously
had a 5 ton...

There are air source heat pumps now that can handle low
temperatures without a backup.
We install the Acadia heat pump in NJ and so far so good.
Sounds like this might be possible, so I'll look a bit
deeper into it.
lips - didnt quote or short anything.
The person called about a particular condenser that is 1 phase.
Their current condenser is 3phase on the roof. Trying
to figure out if it can be done.
Is it as simple as changing the voltage to accommodate
the new 1phase unit? Someone told me this can only
be done if the current 3phase unit has a particular voltage.
Don't recall what the...
Could anything be done to change out an existing 3 phase condenser
on roof to single phase condenser?
bend- that's an interesting point. I need to read up on preparing for
410. The guy told me he was surprised there was no 410a, because most units already come with it.
tin-that's what I...
tin- It's sort of a long story. Was just trying to figure out if the contractor could reuse the refrigerant, and the board had told me he definitely can.
bend - no, he was the second most...
advanced-Good call. dealing with a guy who does mostly commercial service work these days.
dp-Thanks, that's what I was getting at.
beenthere- yes if I must pay for it, then I will keep the jug....
One would ask that if a contractor is charging one
for the entire cylinder of 410a, saying that the
remaining 18 pounds can't be used.
One would want to know if contractor knows what he is...
If a contractor was to purchase a 30lb cylinder of 410a,
but only needed 12 lbs, would the contractor likely
keep or dispose of the remaining refrigerant?
If so, would it remain in the same...
when you say 1/4%. Do you mean 25%?
And I just ordered wrightsoft manual j.
Do you need to subtract off the total btu's
or in just 1 specific area?
Do solar panels affect he load calcs for heating and cooling? I'm told the panels reflect the heat and therefore reduce the amount of cooling necessary.
If the panels do affect the load - is there...
