    Ditto,

    The only time you will really smell burning dust is when you fire it up for the first time for heating season. Even so, the smell usually goes away in less than an hour. A "bad gasket" is...

    Yes,you are completely correct. I apologize for my shortness in my prior post. 20A per 5kw, not 10 kw. And I did mean W1 and W2. Long day at work with some very ignorant customers. Not an excuse...

    You can do whatever you want. Most heat strip packages come with one sequencer or contactor for each 10 kw of heat. A 15 kw package would have two sequencers and you can stage them if you would like....

    A 10kw jeat strip usually draws between 19 and 22 amps. A 20 amp breaker for each 10kw of heat plus the 10 for the fan will cover it. If you worked on them you would know this. It is common knowledge.

    You can stage 5 and 5 but you would need to add an extra heat sequencer or contactor (depending what brand of a/h you have) and have a 2 stage thermostat. Personally, I don't like staging anything...

    So from my understanding ( please, correct me if I'm wrong) your biggest issues are the fact you don't feel they "purged/flushed" the lineset properly and they didn't use a vacuum gauge? First off, I...

    I have 3 sets of gauges in my truck, two R22/410 and one 22. I also use them interchangeably and have never had a single issue because of it. Just be sure to purge them after every use to make sure...

    10kw would be borderline, hard to say w/o a load calc. I wouldn't worry about having 3 stages, just do 10kw first and 5 on second. You will need 20A per 10 kw of heat plus your blower (figure 10A)....

    With all due respect, if you'd spent as much time researching install company's as you have posting the outcome of your actual install, you probably wouldn't be in this mess. I truly do feel for you...

    Did one a few weeks back. Pretty straight forward, not much different. Just read the manual and don't use an impact on the door screws.

    16i only comes in full ton sizes so if it calculated to 3.5 tons you would go up to a 4ton. I live in SE Texas and my house is about 100 sq ft larger than yours and I'm going 4 ton on my 20i so I...

    I think you may be expecting too much. No install company will be able to satisfy your demands completely. The load calc is designed for a specific cfm and any time you change fan speed the air flow...

    Except the problem wouldn't be solved. Your drain theory is correct but the water in the pic is clearly condensation and not overflow. Just look how it beads up on the bottom of the drain pan where...

    Sounds like your fan speed is set up too low. May want to have a tech raise the cfm if possible. With the fan on low speed all the time it is collecting too much moisture inside the cabinet. Raising...

    I wouldn't spray anything on my coils. As long as you keep your house clean, use good filters such as pleated cotton and change them when they are dirty (not just when your schedule says to) you...

    Then you might as well not use glue either. Just because you can't keep from sloping the purple stuff all over doesn't warrant not using it. Yeah, it holds for now but a couple years down the road...
