Besides the Plenum there's vacuum cleaner and some obscure junk thrown in there....
Ok, this might be a stupid question. :whistle:
I'm quite capable of them from time to time.
The Plenum that the current 24x30 return grill is installed to is 24" wide 36" tall and 20" deep.
Udarrel and Beenthere,
Adding a second return...
That's something I'm going to have to see about, precisely where one would go.

As far as the 1st stage vs the second stage my reasoning was based on the reduced cfm in the 1st stage which would be 1300cfm (1st stage) vs 1550cfm(second stage)
I will get the...
Hmmm I gather from the question that there is more to this than what I'm understanding.
The return air grill is already existent 24x30, the units filter slot is a 29x30x2 aprox.
I had thought...
Ok, so after doing some more reading I'm considering using a Honeywell
24" X 30" RETURN GRILL FILTER FC40R1177 4" pleated.
Box of 5 = about $ per filter.
Specs are as follows.

Agreed, Down here in Tennessee in an unconditioned basement the Geyser is perfect. Although in my 1800 sq foot basement it actually does little to actually change the temperature of the basement...
Thanks for the reply,
I have heard others claim as you as well.
My understanding is that the older the unit and lower the seer and if it's an air source hp the more output the desuperheater has....
Thanks DeltaT, :cheers:
What you say is true, as it is what I have come to find out while using it.
My unit has the sensor to monitor the ewt from the wh to determine if the superheat will...

Thanks Everyone for your input.
I appreciate bouncing my concerns off of people that deal with this stuff.
At least it puts my questioning mind at ease a bit more.

Ah thanks for the input, you posted while I was forming my last post :LOL:
I was figuring that having the t stat @ a lower temp during the heat of the day would be less efficient :cheers:
LMAO, now there's a thought, I might get a way with one degree, I'm sure she would notice a difference though...:grin2:
Anyway, I guess what I'm asking is what would be an efficient set back...
