    I originally looked into the Arzel system and only found 1 local contractor that installed them. When I recently went to their website it looks like they dropped Arzel for Emme. The Emme sounded...

    Opinions on Emme zoning system...

    Can anyone comment on how good or bad an Emme zoning system is? It sounds really cool and would work well with my modulating furnace and 2 stage ac unit. Is arzel better or worse?

    Leaving it where it is now, especially with an addition planned, will not work because a new supply trunk would have to go up nearly 2 stories then about 30 feet across the attic - the airflow would...

    My current system is installed in my partial basement. Unfortunately the remainder of the house is on a slab which is why my current situation limits the ability to run ductwork. If the equipment...

    Thanks for the info. Has anyone tried the Spacepak Aircell with ECM motor specifically?
  9. Anyone experience the Spacepak HV Aircell unit? Is it finally an efficient HV system?

    Still looking into HV systems but refuse to give up good efficiency. Now I see spacepak makes an Aircell model with an ECM motor. Any experiences or opinions? Is it efficient or still not?

    I was looking into buying a Winco tri fuel 5000 continuous watt portable generator run on natural gas. My other option us a 20kw Kohler whole house generator, but the cost is very high. Was hoping...
  11. What size portable generator for my Lennox G71V Furnace?

    I am going to purchase a portable generator for a few items in my home in the event of power failure. How much power will it take to run my Lennox G71V 110,000 Btu Gas Furance with ECM motor. I...

    By self contained... I mean a hydronic baseboard heater that does not require a separate boiler and plumbing run to each heater.

    I know standard electric baseboard heaters are not efficient and...
  13. Self-contained hydronic baseboard heat vs forced hot air

    What is the real cost difference to operate self contained hydronic baseboard heaters vs a 95% efficient gas furnace?

    Also what are the real performance differences?
  14. I looked into spray foaming the attic to make it...

    I looked into spray foaming the attic to make it conditioned space. The town inspectors and architect did not love the idea because 1) the cost around 10k and 2) if you ever re-roof or re-side all...

    The challenges I face... My house is a split level and only has a partial basement. In addition many of the floor ceiling joists change direction making duct runs near impossible (unless i move the...
  16. Is there any way to have an efficient high velocity system?

    Is there a spacepak or unico system that can provide high energy efficiency? Everything i read seems to say that i will only get about 11 seer with high velocity which sucks. I see spacepak now...

    Attic ventilation

    My neighbor is having a 2 zone hvac system installed with 1 zone having the equipment and ductwork in the attic. I have been wanting to move my system to the attic but haven't because of all the...
  18. Picking a foam installer will be the tricky part....

    Picking a foam installer will be the tricky part. Some contractors work is so wavy. You see 2 inches in one spot and 6 in another.

    As for ductwork I refuse to have flex installed. I will insist...

    I have a Lennox G71V modulating furnace and an XC21 2 stage ac unit. I think this furnace should be able to work and being that it is modulating it will run in 10% increments from 40%. So even if...
  20. Has anyone spray foamed an attic with an hvac system?

    I live in NJ and am considering closed cell spray foam for my attic. Closed cell foam would be installed on the underside of the roof and on the attic walls. The soffits would also be sealed. I...

    Ductless mini split question

    Other members suggested that I look into ductless mini splits since my idea of having a conventional ducted system installed in the attic is a bad idea.

    So if I have 7 total rooms - 4 bedrooms, 2...

    I see your point now. So while it is not as good as the dropped ceiling soffit, it would still have to be better than just regular r8 ductwork in the attic?

    The attic ductwork layout would serve...

    I feel like mini split is just not the same as a conventional system. Maybe I need to do more research.

    So if it is not considered as part of conditioned space, it would still have to be better...
