  1. Thanks. I'm not sure what the York "guard board"...

    Thanks. I'm not sure what the York "guard board" is. I'm right now considering the modulating 80 furnace, but I have a number of different products being bid for the AC. We like the modulating...
  2. Anyone have any experience with Echelon Communicating Controller (by Coleman)?

    Anyone use, install or have any opinion of this Coleman Echelon communicating controller?

    Thanks. I am leaning towards a Coleman Modulating 80% furnace and single stage AC, still waiting on an...
  3. I got another quote, and the recommendation is a...

    I got another quote, and the recommendation is a 4-ton single stage from this contractor. He says the variable speed fan is the biggest factor when it comes to noise. (The Coleman model he...
  4. We have to live here until it sells. Anyone...

    We have to live here until it sells. Anyone care to ignore the fact that it is for sale ;) and talk briefly about how 2-stage vs modulating would affect noise? Any difference? Anything regarding...

    Yeah, I had two contractors last winter in to look at it, and each told me that it needed replacement. It has since gotten worse. The wiring harness is really finicky, I have to play with it to get...
  6. Modulating vs 2-stage furnace (and 2-stage AC)? Benefits of each.

    Background: valve is shot on an old gas furnace/AC system, mixed components (24 years old). Oversized, 9-SEER.

    Goals: 1) Reduce Noise (ductless return air at base of unit). 2) Cost: our condo...
  7. 80% is probably as efficient as we can get due to...

    80% is probably as efficient as we can get due to venting limitations and the difficulty of installing drains, etc., in a condo retrofit. Still, everything you said makes sense. 80% will be a...
  8. Thank you, that's informative. We are probably...

    Thank you, that's informative. We are probably going the more conventional route, but I'll keep your suggestions in mind.
  9. We have a smaller unit below part of our unit,...

    We have a smaller unit below part of our unit, and nothing above us. We have an east-west exposure, in NM. I would like to get a load calc but that's another cost, and so far I haven't found a...
  10. I got a verbal quote today and the contractor was...

    I got a verbal quote today and the contractor was recommended 4 ton furnace (120k btu) and 4 ton AC, 2-stage for both. I was originally thinking about a modulating 80% furnace, but in a less...
  11. Thanks for your help. I think I've about given...

    Thanks for your help. I think I've about given up on the idea of using a tankless + furnace system, and now I have one more reason to do so. ;) Someone I spoke to today gave those hybrid systems a...
  12. Thanks for the help. How many tons would that...

    Thanks for the help. How many tons would that (80K) be? (Current BTUS on furnace is 162,000, it's 24 years old.)

    The reason I didn't go with the proposal I received is two contractors told me I...
  13. A contractor who bid my furnace told me that a...

    A contractor who bid my furnace told me that a high efficiency furnace would be impractical because the vents would all need to be a different type. Is this the same problem with the tankless...

    2000 Sq. ft. with high ceilings. Everything is 5 ton. (I got a bid from a contractor, which was lazy, and he specified all 5-ton equipment.) The outdoor condenser unit is a Lennox Mod# HS29-060-1P....
  15. Venting requirements for Tankless Water Heater?

    Hi,

    I live in a condo and I'm thinking about a tankless water heater, or a system like Rheem's "integrated heating and water heating system." http://www.rheem.com/products/integrated_systems/ ...
  16. The blower is definitely 5 tons. The furnace...

    The blower is definitely 5 tons. The furnace model number is above, I can't find anything on it due to the age. It is rated to 162,000 BTU/hr, if that tells you anything about the size (I believe...
  17. I don't know why it is upside down, but that's...

    I don't know why it is upside down, but that's the furnace, return register and water heater visible in background (white). I tried posting a flipped version of it and it is still upside down.

  18. Replacing 24-year-old Noisy Furnace--Looking for Advice

    Hi,

    We are replacing a 24-year-old furnace in a condominium that has a faulty valve. It will cost around $$$ to replace the valve and that seems unwise in a furnace this old. It is an upflow...
