    Adrian, I should have said "as Adrian says" instead of "as Adrian seems to think"...they're basically the same, but the latter implies that I don't believe what you're saying, which isn't true.

    From what my service tech told me, the new air handlers and A/C units communicate directly with each other, but a side effect of that is that they won't work with the old Trane zoning systems because...

    He didn't state which product he was using to zone, figured it was Trane as well. Sorry to muddy the waters.

    One thing to consider about the zoning system is how much you could save on a month to month basis.

    I replaced my 30 year old A/C & furnace with a 4-zone Trane system that is a xl19i, so it has...

    For financial reasons, I may go with a small/cheap window unit. If it dies and I can't find a replacement, I can always expand the hole and reframe it to fit a standard sized unit. For now, I'm...

    Wall mounted window Air Conditioner?

    I was wondering if I could get some opinions on framing a hole and wall mounting a window air conditioner. Are there any reasons why this won't work?

    I'm trying to get some small units in each...

    I've got one with a fan that blows over a wet grid. I have it set so that it just barely trickles out the waste tube. It humidifies fine.

    Can you guys think of any downside to doing it this...

    Also, do not trust your humidistat. Mine is off by 10-15%.

    Use the following site to see how accurate your humidistat is. After doing that, I would suggest starting at 40%.

    For #5, I would think keeping the door to the room closed wouldn't be necessary, it would just keep the outdoor air (make-up) from mixing with the rest of the house. So #5 might be a cheaper,...
