    Thanks, guys. Relieved to know that the padding will at least last, but now I'm freaked out about the angle of the supports. It seemed fine looking at it and the installer was confidant that it's...
  2. Installer placed rubber pads beneath XP14 to fit it onto elevated bracket

    Hi Everyone,

    Could I get some feedback on this? When my XP14 was installed last week, the installers placed what appears to be rubber padding beneath the feet so that it would be secured to the...

    Thanks, Doug. I'd have thought (hoped) that Lennox's own HC16 filter would be designed to work well with their modern air handlers.

    The air flow itself doesn't seem noticeably different, but it...
  4. Air handler seems slightly noisier with HC16 carbon filter?

    I've only had my CBX27 for several days now, and I'm loving it. A few hours ago, I put in a Healthy Climate 16 filter (replacing the generic Merv 10 one that came with the HC10 cabinet that was...

    Thanks, everyone. I think I'm going to go for a Prestige (though I would have preferred to avoid a RedLink setup if possible). The Pro8000 looks like a great stat as well, but I figure if I'm going...

    Another thing that Signature Stat had that the Honeywell's lacking - the ability to display precise temps - for example, 20.7 as opposed to a rounded off number.
  7. What modern thermostat has the features of the old Lennox Signature Stat?

    My newly installed system came with a Honeywell FocusPro 6000 stat. For the last 12 years or so, I've controlled my system with a Lennox Signature Stat, which has been mostly terrific, but froze...

    Just a quick update: system is up and running and everything's working beautifully. Zero discernible movement or vibration and no rattling - in fact, this is an unbelievably quiet system. I'm very...

    Thanks for that. I'll ask. They didn't quote a new breaker, but I can't imagine the situation wasn't considered.

    Super über!

    Yep, the lines are apparently-sized correctly, thankfully. New unit's a 2-ton, replacing a (very) old 2-ton.

    Great! They seem to be in great shape, despite their age. When I wrote R44, I meant a line that's been used to carry the old R44 refrigerant.
  13. Tech is about to wash old R44 line instead of installing new line for new system

    Happening right now. Due to extensive cables being bundled against the line (I posted photos of this the other day), the tech doesn't want to replace the old R44 line and says that the install can be...

    Whew, that's a release. Thanks a bunch for your input, everyone. Hopefully I've been over-worrying. Tech arrives in 30 min to install the outdoor unit, run the new lines and connect everything!

    Indeed. I worry, though, as I can make it wobble just by pushing it with my finger.

    Once the blower's running and the line's connected, will that kind of constant movement during operation put...
  17. Photos of today's tight closet air handler instal - slight wobble when pushed against

    Work was done carefully. They ended up needing to install the CBX27 with airflow coming up from the bottom, and you can see what they did in the photos. Looks clean but I just noticed that where my...

    The only thing that gives me pause is...

    Bundled cables on refrigerant line

    As I excitedly await Tuesday's instal of a modern high efficiency heat pump system, I wanted to gauge what peoples' thoughts are on the subject of bundling cables to a line?

    Sorry for not getting back to this thread sooner. I greatly appreciate the input everyone gave me.

  24. Does the Lennox iComfort stat indicate when Aux heat is in use?

    Having a new XP14 installed next week and am considering replacing my old stat with an iComfort, but looking at the various screens online, there doesn't appear to be anything that indicates when...

    I've been considering that, Mike. The reason I didn't go that way in the first place is because I've heard that Goodman's fine for air handlers, but I'd be better off with something more refined for...

    Oh, sorry, yes, I meant a blower / electric heat kit, which I've currently got installed on top of a very old coil.

    Thanks, BL. Here's the info that I've got so far. Apparently the coil matches to the XP14, and this particular installer has a good reputation. I can't find anything online about this particular...
  28. How many here have used an ADP coil with a Lennox heat pump?

    Is it generally considered to be ok?

    It's looking to be one of my only options, due to a tight pre-existing closet install where I'm keeping the modern air handler / furnace and will only be...
  29. Thanks for that post, Darrell. That's amazing...

    Thanks for that post, Darrell. That's amazing info to have. There's no question of there being major issues with the 20-year-old heat pump / AC, and it's soon to be replaced. I was just unsure about...

    Hi Vstech,

    We're definitely changing out the coil, no question, as well as the line. I don't think I'd have a choice even if I waned to. As it needs to be fit beneath the Goodman furnace, and...

    Thanks, everyone. The system's not having any problems with airflow volume that I've ever been aware of. I'll be keeping the Goodman. :)
  32. Being advised to change-out my two-year-old furnace as I replace my heat pump system

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently getting bids on replacing a very old heat pump with a modern unit (I've posted here several times about this now - I'm the guy with the closet install and the...
  33. Has anyone been able to compare the Lennox XP14 to the XP17?

    Trying to determine if it may be worth spending the extra $ it would cost to get an XP17 instead of the XP14 that I'm considering. I know it's a more energy efficient model, but would the savings and...

    Thanks, guys. I can't afford to buy a new heat pump air handler in addition to everything else right now, unfortunately (also, the current one was only bought two years ago).

    Both installers are...
  35. Updating an old in-closet instal and raising the furnace to accommodate new coil

    In short, the installation at my home was done in-closet years before I moved in, and I'm soon going to be replacing the coil and heat pump (the furnace / air handler was replaced several years ago)....
  36. That's what I figure, Rider. I can get the...

    That's what I figure, Rider. I can get the Goodman for nearly $ CDN less than the Lennox (everything's a fortune in Canada), so it's really tempting, as long as the quality and reliability is there....
  37. Experiences with / thoughts on Goodman SSZ14?

    An installer is recommending this heat pump as an alternative to the pricer Lennox XP 14 I was considering. I know that Goodman isn't a high end brand, so to speak, but sometimes simple can be...

    They stop making parts available for older units? That's worrying, as they seem to keep their models the same for so many years, you'd expect them to have a regular supply of parts stockpiled.

    How reliable is the Lennox XP14?

    I'm finally going to be replacing my 20 year old York system and am considering an XP14. I know Lennox had issues with some of these units around 2009, but are the current machines generally reliable...

    Heat pump not turning on

    This is extremely frustrating, as I've recently replaced my air handler and am now dealing with what appears to be major issues with my heat pump.

    Living in Montreal, where winters are harsh,...

    Shoot. I did ask here before I replaced the air handler, and some people said that the VS is more reliable while others said it was much more fragile. My installer's take on it was that, aside from...

    Thanks, George. I'll definitely run the fan full time in the summer, when air conditioner, for de-humidification benefits, but during the winter heating season, it sounds like Auto is the way to go. ...
  46. Does keeping fan on "On" instead of "auto" make much of a difference in energy costs?

    Possibly a silly question, but I ask because I've heard that fans use the most energy upon starting up, so I wonder if keeping a blower's fan setting at "auto", which could see it starting and...

    Thanks. Do you find VS air handlers to be more complicated to repair? Also, how significant would you say the reduction in operating costs might be?
