    Made a copy of the recording of the pinging. Taken beside the furnace with my phone.
    Wasn't sure how to attach the file

    I will try to do that. Because it is so high pitched it may not get picked up by the mic but I will give it a shot.

    Only at shutdown.

    It's not the ductwork that's making the noise. It's coming from the heat exchanger.
  4. Help. Ready to turn off one week old furnace and use electric heaters.

    Last week we had a new Tempstar VC97 modulating gas furnace installed.

    No complaints about the installers. It is a horizontal install in a dirt crawl replacing a previous gas furnace.

  6. Bypass Humidifier - Lennox, Bryant, Trion, Aprilaire - I'm confused

    I am confused as to what companies carry what brands.

    I thought that both Lennox and Bryant used Aprilaire bypass humidifiers, but now I have been told that a Bryant bypass humidifier is actually...

    They did list model numbers but my focus was the AC and Furnace. When I saw Bryant G200 humidifier I didn't bother checking it out because I knew from Bryant's website that they only make one Bypass...

    I am led to believe that the humidifiers made for Bryant are made by Aprilaire. This one is made by Trion. Different manufacturers. Don't know if there is any difference in quality.
  9. I feel I was misled by my contractor. Looking for an opinion?

    I had narrowed down my choice to a Bryant or Carrier AC and Furnace system. Both were identical and the contractors were of equal size and reputation. The quotes seemed the same but Bryant was a bit...

    2 Ton or 2.5 Ton

    1989 - When we had our AC installed we were advised to go with a 2 ton as the 2.5 ton would be too powerful and dry out the air too much. 25 year old house. 1,800 square foot back split with...

    Bryant 355CAV vs Carrier 58MVC Furnace
    Bryant Evolution vs Carrier Infinity Control

    I just got off the phone with one of the salesman. I asked the question why none of the dealers in Ottawa do a load calculation. His answer was that because it is not a new home it requires a couple...

    Just curious about why the Mod would negate needing a humidifier.

    As for an extended warranty. If the furnaces never break down, why don't they come with a longer warranty as an incentive?
  15. Thanks.

    Thanks.

  17. Question for Canadian Contractors about HRAC

    Is it an added benefit for a contractor to be an HRAC member?

    Are there any possible concerns if a contractor is not a member?

    Thanks

    The quick answer is no. I have seen 4 contractors. All of them saw what my existing furnace was and asked me what my square footage was. I told them about the 3 ceiling fans I have that run full...
  19. Bryant/Carrier Heat Exchanger Problems - Have they been fixed.

    Its a bit frustrating trying to make a decision. You have to become so well informed for a decision that you probably won't have to make again for 15-20 years.

    I think I have narrowed down my...

    I have seen 4 HVAC contractors so far. The only question I have been asked about heating is to see the existing furnace and how many square feet is the house. What is involved in doing an accurate...

  22. Question about Bryant's Evolution Contol

    The evolution control is supposed to let you know when it is time for a filter change. How well does this work? Will the variable speed motor on the furnace just keep ramping up in speed as the...

    I had also considered something like that. I know the Lennox Healthy Climate was highly rated by Consumers Reports. But then again that was the only one of its kind that they rated.
