  1. Need advice on ductless system for workshop-cum-residence

    We bought a piece of property (50 miles north of Houston) last summer with the intention of building a barn/workshop for me, followed shortly by a new house. Fast-forward a year or so, and the...

    Yes, the ductwork is in the (unvented & insulated) attic. Could it be the fresh air intake is pulling in too much outside air when it runs? Can't remember if I mentioned it or not, but I'm just north...

    I suppose that's possible, but it seems unlikely. There is no overlap in the systems, at least not back where the RH is being measured.

    My house is shaped kind of like a big capital H. One system...

    Here's some more weirdness for you to chew on. The bedroom-side unit has been turned off for most of the week (I think it quit cooling on Monday night) while we figured out what to do and now wait...

    I have fresh air intakes on both systems. I already have a contractor lined up to install the new equipment. I have room-by-room load calcs, but not duct evaluations.

    I cannot replace ductwork at...

    We only have trouble in a couple of places. The guest casita, with 4 exterior 18' walls and a (suspected) non-working zone control setup, is hard to cool. The TV room (the farthest room from the...
  8. Need Guidance - Too Much Air in Foam-Insulated Home?

    I'm going to try to make a long story significantly shorter and still include the necessary information. If I leave something out, please don't hesitate to ask - I'll post it as soon as I can.

    I'm back...did everybody miss me?

    Sorry for the long absence, but to answer your questions: No, nothing has been done to my HVAC setup (yet).

    Well, that's not 100% accurate. Based on feedback I...

    So I went and bought a $50 infrared thermometer at Lowe's; I know it's not nearly as fancy as the ones you guys use, but it'll have to do for now. With the t-stat on one of my units set to 76 and the...

    RH has been in the mid-50s since turning off the dehumidifiers. I think this is actually a slight improvement over what it had been. The other data I'll have to get next week; I'm getting ready to...

    Okay, I have about a week's worth of data to go on now. The most curious thing to me is the degree of apparent "randomness" as far as how long the compressors run:

    Sorry - I keep forgetting to answer that question. Both t-stats are set on "Auto." I was always taught to leave them on that setting, not to set the fan to "On." So that never changes.

    Do I need some kind of fancy tool to find that information, or can I use my handy-dandy Radio Shack digital thermometer & humidity meter, just held up to the register for a bit?
