Definitely. Hopefully, that goes without saying.
Ran across one this summer where the company (out of business now, of course) sold an extended (in house) warranty.
How do you...
First; there are not enough registers (airflow).
Secondly, you might try "dumping" some heat under the floor.
Thirdly, add more registers or increase the airflow and then zone.
TempStar used to require that you had to have the furnace "serviced" once a year to keep the 10 year labor protection in effect.
Don't fall for that trick. Otherwise, I think the extended...
A public servant should be held to higher standards because of the public trust.
They should throw the bum into jail and throw away the key.
This is the tip of the iceberg for this thief.

We did a home ur size with one furnace and one A/C and eight (8) zones.
Works like a dream.
Looks like a seam to me.
I probably would believe to two companies that said it was okay.
Load calcs. are great, unless you can't get the air where it's needed.
You have a 3 ton (27 yrs.) and someone wants to install a 4 ton. Mistake....in so many ways.
Sounds like a 3 ton 2-stage...
With the ductwork in the attic and the (sun) exposure, the 2.5 ton is probably the one for you.
I get by because the A/C is NEVER off (my wifes fear of dust).
Most people will open the...
My home is a 2,250 sq. ft. 2 story built in 1946. East/west exposure with awning, however.
No insulation in the sidewalls and terrible windows, although they do have (lousy) alum. storms.
Where will the new ductwork go? Attic, basement or crawl space? How is the home insulated, windows and storm doors?
What is the homes exposure to the sun? Does the home have awnings or shade...

I've lived in my home for 32 yrs. The home had an old GE 2.5 ton. It cooled; i.e. dehumidified, like a dream. I could keep the stat at 76-78 and be comfortable.
Replaced it with a newer...

How many returns are there?
Take a grille (or 2) off and notice the differance.
11-10-2010, 03:01 PM
They either don't know or don't care. Both of which is a bad thing.

A VS motor will NOT be quieter if there is not enough RA.
People think a VS motor is a cure all. Wrong.
It boils down to how its designed, installed and service after the sale.
Spend some time reading these posts and you'll understand what I'm trying to say.
Normally, the high static is caused by a lack of return air; i.e. filter (size or type), ductwork (too small), or grilles (number and/or size).
I saw a new (5 year old) house last year with a bad...
We have some LP systems in the country. I size the gas line as if they'll get natural gas someday.

Unfortunately, this is probably true. But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know why this is..............cost.
If flex is done incorrectly (metal the same thing) you'll be sorry for a long...

I had hear that 35 years ago from a guy that really knew his stuff.
But like you mentioned it's counter intuitive to logical thinking.
Thank you for confirming what I had been told. I think...
I assume the 14" went to a 14" tee and then reduces (both ways) to 10"?
That would be 400 cfm each way. Remember flex kills airflow.

I'm surprised that the 5 ton systems will accomplish the 15.00 SEER (no problem there), 12.50 EER (problem ?) and 8.5 HSPF (problem ?).
I'm too lazy to look it up. Let me know.
FE4ANF006010 (10kw) or 011 (11 kw) or (015) you guessed it.
I would recommend the Infinity zone system and the Infinity control.
It's a really nice (quiet) zone system that doesn't require a...

A five ton system requires a lot of airflow and knowledge. Go with the best company. The product is the last thing to worry about. The Bryant is variable speed. Is the Am. Std. also variable?
Sounds like a real botch job.
14" pipe is good for 1,000 cfm. 10" pipe is good for 400 cfm. 8" pipe is good for 240 cfm. 6" pipe is good for 110 cfm.
When flex is used, reduce the airflow...

I sell York but used to sell Carrier. I lean towards the Carrier (slightly).
That said, it ALWAYS depends on the company you're dealing with first and formost.
