timebuilder- Yes you are correct; this would be on the roof. In speaking with the city, it's the contractor's choice to do this on Saturday (when everyone is home) rather than a week day. We were...

OP: Thanks to everyone for your advice. We were very uncomfortable having already agreed to wait for two weeks, to then have the contractor say that time was his reason for not delivering what he...

LOL. We tried to get one of those on the White House steps but the line was too long!

The Choo Choo is also a two stage.

"Authorized"? The dealer does not come up on the Trane site but they have the Trane icon on their website.
(Laughing at myself as I type this; I think I saw this in a commercial)

tigerdunes- I was willing to wait on the Trane. I told the dealer so, and then he called saying that the Trane would be longer than he first estimated. He said he did not know how much longer, so he...

I live in Washington D.C. -O.

Thank you for the follow up! As you can see- it's giving me some angst and I should not have that. Unfortunately, we have given a deposit. -O.

I mistakenly stuck this on the end of an old posting but it did not really fit the old topic. So here goes...
After all your guidance and additional research, we settled on a contractor who was...

OP again - after all your guidance and other research, we settled on a contractor who was offering to install a Trane XL14C. There would be a two-week wait time for installation. We gave him the go...
I am close to making a final decision on my roof unit and an install company, but I would appreciate some help with SEER ratings. The two final gas/elec package units in the running are:

My understanding is that the quote is to replace my gas/elec package roof-top usit that heats and cools the second floor of my house. I am told that my old dead Goodman is 70-75btu (I have been told...

So one of the recommended replacement units for the upstairs of my house was a Rheem/RUUD RRRL-C-024. Does anyone know how many BTUs this machine has?
My current machine has 70BTU. Is this machine...

Thanks all- I have an all gas house. -O.

dan sw fl: No one else has recommended abandoning my gas. What are the benefits of going that route? -Olga

O! Lessons: I need to caulk more of my baseboards and the top of the window trim. -O.

So even-though I purchased the home in 2002 and was told that there were new machines on the property, both systems are 1999 systems and out of warranty. I can only guess this is why no one suggested...

percision havc: I have another system that services the basement and the first floor. We have only been surviving the cold because of this system.

jtrammel- that was helpul. Thank you. -O.
01-26-2013, 10:33 PM
Correction: they do work with the city.
01-26-2013, 10:17 PM
jtrammel: I did not originally think it was connected to a quote but it looks like it may be :( We are also signed up for something through the city. -O.

OldSchoolMech: We have an energy audit on Mon am; that should provide some of these answers right? -O.

So an undersized duct can crack heat exchangers? No one speculated this out loud to me. I am told that there is flex ducts in my crawl space. -O.
01-26-2013, 08:33 PM
Comfortdoc- No, they did not off any reasoning, except that it is a Goodman and it was installed by a rehab/flipper when I purchased the house in 2002. It even gets a bit ugly. This machine had been...
01-26-2013, 06:34 PM
Thanks all thus far! They are all using the existing ductwork. Truthfully, I would mostly likely just cry about the cost if I had to also pay for ductwork (I am already pushing 10 for almost all...
