    Yes, it's a bit more than 6 inches back from the door. Louvered doors wouldn't bet a good fit appearance (or sound) wise, so I'll need the air supplies increased.

    It's time for me to set up an...

    No one has a suggestion? This isn't a DIY question (I'm not a DIY-type) and it's also not to criticize anyone's work, it was how the house (that I bought 10 years ago) was built 40 years ago.

    How large should the fresh air intake be?

    I'm not sure if reading in this forum leads me to having more answers or more questions.

    I have an 80% 120K furnace that has what seems to be about a 5 inch diameter sheet metal exhaust pipe....

    Motoguy, I'm not fighting the answer. You've been most informative, thanks. Maybe my problem is that what I'm looking for performance-wise isn't how equipment today is sized or intended to perform. ...

    I don't know. It's Ruud HiEfficiency and about 22 years old. I took off the covers of both the top and bottom compartments and saw paper sticker data (like the board schematic) but no size...

    The ducts are sealed and insulated. I guess a quick response to your question is that the sleeping temp is too low for awake time and the awake temp is too high for sleeping. Something in-between...

    I appreciate your comment but I'm not sure I fully understand it. My concern was the transition, not the setbacks themselves.

    The setback isn't so much for saving energy, it's because we prefer to...

    I'm not sure any of your customers would view this as a "perfect" situation. I certainly wouldn't.

    I guess I'm a slow learner. Don't people use setback thermostats so that their furnaces DON'T...

    Thanks for the comments.

    The furnace has had an "annual service", by the company that installed it. I've lost confidence in that contractor and I'll be using a different one in the future.

    I understand what you're saying but there's nothing unique about my house in that regard, everywhere is the same.

    When we beefed up the attic insulation, the insul. contractor also bid on doing the floor. He said he'd be happy to do it, but suggested it wouldn't make a...

    What to do about slow heating warmup?
