    You mean the thing that looks like a long rubber cap? Guess I thought the brown wire was something special, like a thermocouple made of 2 different metals.... and did not need an actual sensor...
  2. So, you are saying the sensor is located on the...

    So, you are saying the sensor is located on the opposite side of where it enters???

    The white temp/humidity gauge on the tree FACES the direction where the sun does not shine. About the same...
  3. yes, white sensor is located in the only location...

    yes, white sensor is located in the only location (circumferentially) where the sun doesn't shine.

    OK then, guess I'll stop worrying. Thanks for everyone's input.:CU:
  4. It runs up inside. It doesn't just look like it,...

    It runs up inside. It doesn't just look like it, it is - there's a hole it's going through. Getting the cover off looks simple, though I don't know if anything needs to be done to the electric...
  5. Can you explain which direction is "away"? And...

    Can you explain which direction is "away"? And are you referencing from right where the refrigerant lines enter the HP?

    The way I read this is to move out 4" from where the lines enter the...
  6. Good point. When I observed this temperature...

    Good point. When I observed this temperature disparity, it was NOT because I felt the house as chilly. I just heard the HP running and I new it was below freezing..... so I looked at the OAT on the...
  7. Thanks. I this a Carrier p/n? If so, could be...

    Thanks.

    I this a Carrier p/n? If so, could be a place to start. I have model numbers for the HP and burner, but nothing else.

    I can understand the temperature discrepancy if the sensor is...

    Had no idea! Thanks! Problem solved (except implementation).:cheers:

    Would there be any section of this BBS which may discuss the hands-on details of this, or would I have better luck just...

    wouldn't that defeat the option to select a cut-out temperature? The HP would run regardless of how cold it was outside - is that really wise?
  10. Nobody wants to spend any time discussing it. I...

    Nobody wants to spend any time discussing it. I first sent one of the employees (who set the system up) an e-mail about the issue. Nothing. Re-sent. Nothing. The receptionist always says...
  11. Not a bad idea, but: First, because I don't...

    Not a bad idea, but:

    First, because I don't want something mounted to the front of my house (north side).
    Second, the range on those sensors, even though they say 300', is nowhere remotely that...
  12. That's why I have a concern - heat pump running,...

    That's why I have a concern - heat pump running, running, running and running because of low efficiency.

    I know there is some 'intelligence' to the t-stat (e.g. if you try to raise the indoor...
  13. ok - thanks. Not looking to put any money into...

    ok - thanks. Not looking to put any money into it, so i'll just (try to ) accept it.
  14. I'd have to kindly disagree. When the sun is not...

    I'd have to kindly disagree. When the sun is not out, the OAT located at the HP is within +/- 1F of my wireless outdoor sensors. I observed the exact same effect when initially mounting the...
  15. what effect, if any, would there be in the...

    what effect, if any, would there be in the summer? Is the OAT an input to the system for anything?

    If I wanted the HP to run down to 25F (or even colder, possibly), due to reading incorrect...
  16. Outside air temperature affected by direct sunlight on outdoor unit

    I recently had a hybrid system (heat pump / oil) installed. Single stage heat pump (Carrier), variable speed blower.

    I have two (2) outdoor wireless thermostat sensors who's temperature I can...
  17. Could you please dumb this down for me a bit? By...

    Could you please dumb this down for me a bit? By 'oil hybrid', do you mean exactly what I currently have? Cooling by A/C, heating by oil? What is the 'incremental cost'? And what constitues...

    Yes, thanks. I dropped a quick e-mail off at your web site and got a quick reply back. Was told you do not function as a field tech, but that 'any/all techs will have received some sort of...

    yes, they are less than an hour - thanks.

    starting to sound good. Are heat pumps priced significantly higher than an a/c units, for 'equivalent' cooling performance ?

    So, do these types of backup systems allow use of both the primary...

    lol. thanks for the idea, but I do like WARM air from a forced hot air unit. Know lots of people around here with heat pumps - don't know their setup details, but overwhelming majority state that...

    Really? Could you help me out? I do not see anyone closer on the map. Am I missing something obvious? thx.

    honestly, I'm not much into the green scene. Unless I can EASILY recoop (in less than 10 years) the extra expenditure to make a 14 SEER operate at peak efficiency, and put a 20%+ dent in my existing...
  24. What if my existing system operates fine (to me), even with poor duct work?

    I have a (1995) 1700 sq ft Cape in north Maryland running a 1995 Rheem 3 ton (10 SEER?) and WeatherKing forced hot air oil burner (140k input!). I am the first owner, have not had one problem with...

    No nearby contractors in AOP contractor map

    Looks like the closest registered AOP contractor is 60-90 minutes away (zip=21921, Elkton, MD, located half way between Baltimore and Philly). I assume this is reallistically too far to request (and...
  26. What about 'the install' makes it as important, or more, than the equipment?

    Newbie here, have been reading through threads for the past couple of days. I have noticed a common response to questions like "what brand A/C (and/or heater) is better/best?" I see many responses...
