    Clicking sounds all over the house

    Hi
    since the heating season had begun I'm hearing strange clicking sounds all over the house. Sometimes they are so loud that they wake me up at nights. Strangly enough I didn't notice these sounds...

    That sounded wrong. I'm thankful for all the input I've got. I was actually questioning my own decision. When I decided to replace the furnace I was looking for noise reduction comfort and...

    To complement your suggestion I selected a contractor that sells Bryant, Rheem and Trane. So it's not about either York or Amana anymore :)
    thanks

    I used -1 as a defalut in the program and got 45417 BTUH heat lose. So now I'm positive I don't need more than a 60.

    Isn't it what the variable speed motor in Bryant 355AAV for? To be adjusted to...

    I was going by max temperature both ways. Last year we had a few weeks that were at about -8F. Should I put the average temperature instead?

    Okay I guess I'm done. Hopefully I did the numbers correctly. The only thing that I wasn't sure of was the Ceiling insulation. Mine is R-32. The available selections were 30 or 38, so I selected 30....

    Thanks beenthere,
    I wasn't sure what the conditioned space is. I figure it's the space that is already a part of the calculation.

    Now, how would I know the cavity insulation rating? The guy in...

    I'm kind of answering my own questions here. I think I don't need the Duct component because the furnace is in the basement and the duct is inside the house so it doesn't contribute to the load.

    Actually I'm not even sure I need to add the Duct component to the load calculation. The guy on the video says "if the furnace was in the basement and the duct vent was in the condition space we...

  15. What is the difference between 58MVB060 and 355AAV?

    The Bryant guy says it's the same as Carrier. The Carrier guy says that the Carrier is much more sophisticated and provides more comfort.

    Did I get the numbers correctly?

    Thanks.
