    I always try to use OEM, that way there are no questions if something were to happen.

    Tents are the only way to go. 5 minutes with the AC running, it's like summertime in there.

    I can't remember the brand we use but setup is less than a minute.

    If you do manage to blow it through the secondary, how much mixes with water and clogs it up?

    You could remove the primary to clean it, but then it's already out, and a new one is so much...

    I would start with a good loop flush. Really the only good way to ensure you don't have a large air bubble blocking one of the paths.

    As far as overall comfort goes, I don't think you can beat radiant. If I had the money though, I would have both. Heated and cooled walls and floors, air for heat/cool/ventilation/humidity.

    Sounds like it. Unless you're talking about the main limit. Are you running a bypass humidifier? There is a switch to increase flow by 15% I think. Low runs very hot.

    It rarely looks good but what about just angling the exhaust away from the window? Or maybe it was when it was inspected.

    Solution #2 is perfect. I just quit smoking at the beginning of the year, so now I realize how powerful that smell can be. Lynn has it right, diagnose then fix.

    What kind of HEPA system did you put in? Bypass or "HEPA"? I'm totally anti-cat, only because the litter box is always next to the furnace. Pets and HEPA don't mix well.

    Heaterman is completely right. In my opinion, once I hear '92, and needs a new brain, I replace. You may replace the board and lose something major next week. Why bother?

    I always find with 410a and TXV, weigh in your extra charge, then do your subcooling. You might be surprised how far off the weigh in can be.
