    Is this a fire hazard?

    This panel is for a neighbor's A/C condensor in the same building that I live in, and it's hanging loosely. I reported it to management, who supposedly contacted the owner, but nothing has been done...
  2. Here's a pic of where the copper lines are...

    Here's a pic of where the copper lines are attached. I'm guess that those metal caps on the sides are locking caps. I tried gently turning one of the caps by hand and without any effort it turns...
  3. Two small black plastic caps found after A/C start-up...what were they for?

    I'm wondering what these 2 plastic caps were for. I found these on the ground in front of my new 24ABB348 Carrier Infinity condenser after the system was started up and after the techs left. I...

    The efficiency is 80%. Everyone who I got a quote from wanted to install a 110,000 BTU furnace. My previous furance was higher input than 110 (I think 125,500), but less than 80% efficiency. It...

    6 times per hour

    Question for the pros here: I live in Northern NJ, and my new 110K BTU input furnace was still cycling even in single digits. It was cycling 6 times per hour, and likely never switched to the 2nd...
  6. YouTube video of the Inducer Fan spinning in the 58CVA furance....is this normal?

    The technician who looked at my Carrier 58CVA furance last week (or end of the previous) seems to think it doesn't matter than my Inducer Fan blade appears a little "wobbly" I would like other...
  7. What's ironic is the furnace doesn't seem all...

    What's ironic is the furnace doesn't seem all that loud in the basement during those first 35 seconds. It makes noise, but, hearing it downstairs, I wouldn't think it would be heard 2 levels up,...
  8. Asymmetrical plastic inducer fan blade on Carrier 58CVA furance

    I have a new Carrier 58CVA furance, and, during the ignition phase (first 35 seconds after the thermostat calls for heat), I can hear a humming noise as far away as two floors above the basement...
  9. Is it worth reducing Cycles Per Hour setting on Honeywell CT-3500 thermostat?

    I have a new 80% efficiency Gas forced air furnace w/ variable speed motor. I've been getting cycles that are around 11 or 12 minutes long from the beginning of the current cycle to the beginning...

    Kidde claims that the CO alarm will store peak levels of 11ppm and higher and they can be recalled by pressing the "Peak Level" button. Can poisoning occur below 11?

    I meant CO, not CO2.

    The guy from PSEG claimed that the natural gas detector he used to detect for a gas leak is the "best that money can buy" and "more sensitive than the human nose" when I...
  12. I wasn't aware of 200cc/hr is allowed at the...

    I wasn't aware of 200cc/hr is allowed at the seals of the valve. If that is the case, then perhaps that's what I'm smelling (3.33 CC per minute) Would a Gas Detector be able to detect this, or...
  13. When I discovered the smell last night, I shut...

    When I discovered the smell last night, I shut the furnace electrical switch outside the furnace to the off position, and I actually forgot to turn the switch back on, so the furnace didn't run...

    PSEG came over with a detector and say everything looks okay. I guess I should go ahead and make that final payment, right?
  15. The detector the installer used looked like this...

    The detector the installer used looked like this one: 347421
  16. The installer just came with a detector (lime...

    The installer just came with a detector (lime green in color) that has an LED and which will beep (and increase the rate of beeping if it detects something). I was told that the detector works...
  17. As it stands, someone from the installation...

    As it stands, someone from the installation company is supposed to come over later with a meter and a soapy solution. Not sure I like the idea of the latter being used inside the furnace. If they...
  18. I called them and left a message, but what I'm...

    I called them and left a message, but what I'm afraid will happen tomorrow is that they ignore me, or perhaps they will send someone over who won't have any ability to determine for certain that it...
  19. I could call them, but keep in mind they already...

    I could call them, but keep in mind they already sent a service tech out once to replace the shutoff valve outside the furnace. They may think I'm a crank, but if you think I should call them again...
  20. Need advice: I believe I'm getting slight whiff gas from this part on my NEW furnace.

    My new furnance (installed Jan 2nd) just passed inspection and I was planning on calling the installer to make the final payment tomorrow. However, tonight, I happened to remove the front cover off...
  21. Ok, sounds good. Thanks.

    Ok, sounds good. Thanks.
  22. I got them to fix it today, so that it now is the...

    I got them to fix it today, so that it now is the way it was originally, with no exhaust vent pipes slanting downward. I had pics of the way it was originally, in case they were to argue, but I...
  23. Thanks. I will insist they fix it tomorrow.

    Thanks. I will insist they fix it tomorrow.
  24. Part of water heater vent pipe is now sloped downward after furnace installation

    I just got a new furnace installed today. The guys are coming back tomorrow to install the A/C condensor. I notice that the water heater vent pipe is not the way it used to be. There used to be,...

    The furnace is in the basement (and the furnace room actually has sheetrock in the ceiling, and the thermostat is on the first floor, not directly above the furnace, and the room below the thermostat...
  26. Hmm....does that mean I could get away without...

    Hmm....does that mean I could get away without yearly maintenance (other than changing the filter)....and maybe only have it professionally tuned up, say, every 2 years?
  27. Well, I'm going with the variable speed. Hope...

    Well, I'm going with the variable speed. Hope it's not a mistake.

    I happened to be looking online at the service manual....looks like routine maintenance is complicated with these new...

    Okay they cleared it up....the fan runs at full speed when the compressor is running.
  29. This is what I was told in an email: "you set...

    This is what I was told in an email: "you set it for 1600 for ac it will begin at 200 cfm ramp up to the 1600 setting until the stat is satisfied then ramp back down till it shuts off.
    "

    That...
  30. What about in the summer? There have been days...

    What about in the summer? There have been days when it is in the upper 90s outside, and my current system ran virtually continuously with the downstairs thermostat set at 75. There are rooms...

    Let's say everything really is oversized....is the 2 stage going to help me or hurt me in that situation?

    I'm also still wondering if the Variable Speed is going to help me or hurt me in the...

    There are days when the outside temp can get that cold around here.

    My highest gas bill over the past 12 months was $169.76 for the billing month ending on Jan 20th 2012, and during the prior year, the highest was $220.50 for that same billing month (ending in Jan...

    I doubt 110K is twice the size needed, given that my townhouse is over 3K square feet, if you include the finished basement.
  35. Everyone I talk to wants to put in a 110K BTU 80%...

    Everyone I talk to wants to put in a 110K BTU 80% furnace in my house. My existing one is 125,000 BTU input but I'm told it's only 65% or 70% efficient, and not 80% My existing furnace model# is...
  36. Is the furnace with the VS motor a waste of money...

    Is the furnace with the VS motor a waste of money as well, without it wired to a 2 stage thermostat? I don't even have humidifier and don't plan on getting one.
  37. Single speed models # ending in 16 (1600 CFM) vs. dual speed model # ending in #20

    I ntoiced that the two choices of furnaces with single-speed blowers that they are pricing for me have a number that ends in -16, which I understand means 1600 CFM. The dual-speed ends in -20 which...
  38. Carrier 58STA vs. 58CVA, is extra $ for variable speed blower, 2 stage worth it?

    I'm getting a new AC and Heating system installed. I'm told there is a $ increase in price, for the whole system, if I choose the Carrier 58CVA110-20 vs. the 58STA110-16. For the AC, I'm going...
  39. Will May 2013 mandate cause shortage of new 80% AFUE furnaces in the spring?

    I just found out about the mandate, in which I won't be allowed to have a furnace with less than 90% efficiency installed after May 2013. Since I'm due for a new forced air natural gas furnace,...
