    I did not see any mention of replacing the furnace/blower is this correct? With a split system the blower, evaporator, condenser and metering device need to match. The thermostat is not your problem,...

    Insist on a load calculation

    I have done countless load calculations and the one thing I have learned is I could not possibly eyeball the size unit for a home without over-sizing the equipment. I constantly put in smaller units...

    The real issue is not going to be any concern until your warranty is up in 5-10 years depending on what you are receiving. And your unit (R-22) has been...

    Does anybody know where I can get some information that will help explain how oversizing a mid efficiency gas furnace will waste more energy than a properly sized unit? Thanks in advance for any help.

    just my opinion

    I lived in Northern VA before moving to southern AZ six years ago. I think you should consider staying with an all electric heat pump or go to a duel fuel system.
    If you go duel fuel you will...

    I don’t know what your local utility rates are but I believe dual fuel is the way to go. Heat pumps often don’t have the same life as a gas furnace and A/C combination because of the extreme...

    single stage v/s two stage
