I think he's talking about the cone shaped termination on a concentric.
We are FORBIDDEN from giving DYI advise.
And the procedures you just described are open to the public, someone may see them and be injured.
That's why we can't give step by step instructions.
If that's the Modine hot dawg I'm thinking of, it should NOT be glowing red at the "burner tubes'.
Sounds extremely dangerous to me.
I would shut it off and call for service.
I believe that's not allowed.
What does your contractor suggest?
Trane makes a very nice stat for that set up.
Yes, if your furnace can move 1400 cfm.
The question is, do you need 3.5 tons of cooling?
The flue and the gas lines were the first to jump out at me.
And the flammables close to the boiler.
I would keep 2 systems.
I've seen a Bayvent done backwards.
Yes, it must be fixed!!
It's not the limit.
If your tech is confused by this, you need a new tech.
Is there a significant temperature imbalance between floors?
if so, now would be the time to address the problem.
I have replace many failed Lux tstats.
Honeywell not so much.
1 "out of warranty" repair will erase any energy savings.
What are trying to accomplish with your filter?
The filter is there to keep dirt out of your furnace.
It's not there to clean the air in your home.
Your furnace is designed to run at a steady state. It is easier on the equipment to run continuously than to cycle on and off.
If it can recover at -9 degrees you're in good shape.
The formula is called Manual J.
Does the current system maintain the temp on the coldest days?
I have a hard time believing this is real.
Are you an engineer?
A good contractor will be able to explain every detail and show you the actual numbers on the best system for your particular situation, including differences in utility costs.
A properly designed...
Pour every penny you have into insulation and sealing air leaks.
Then get a manual J and it may end up at 70,000 btu.
Why would you call him back if it brought the house to temp and then cycled normally?
Set backs on heat pumps are usually counterproductive.
I rarely jump into these idiotic threads. Couldn't help myself though.
As usual, the third graders show up with their childish name calling.
Surprised we haven't gotten a "communist", "socialist",...
Dogboy - I'm betting those "Building Scientists" have never actually been in an attic.
I know I can tell the difference between the two!
Honeywell has some of the most dependable products out there in my opinion.
Not familiar with that particular stat, (Prestige?) but I'm sure you can lock out the aux heat to a low temp to mitigate...
Wasn't that the line from 2012?
You have given us no information. How could we possibly know.
