    They were out yesterday and I forgot to ask about measuring static pressure. I know there is basically none on the supply side based on the fact that you can't really feel any air moving into the...

    Problem is resolved on the sound. :grin2: The service guy took the top off and found that the line that leads to the sensor for the TXV was touching the suction line filter drier (in blue in the...

    I'm actually surprised at how well it is working. The A/C hasn't made it out of first stage while I've been there without me changing the temp to make it happen. The master bedroom on the end of...

    Yes, 12 inch T's to 10 inch both ways. 3 supplies on one side and 6 on the other.
  5. 600 CFM through 10 round pipe? Possible?

    The install manager has assured me that 10 inch pipe will handle 600 cfm. New system is 2 tons and has a 12 inch round pipe off the air handler with a T into 10 inch pipe. 3 6 inch flex ducts on...

    Well, the fix lasted for one cycle. Oh well.
  7. Holy crap! You're the man! I did that today...

    Holy crap! You're the man! I did that today again. I guess I didn't do it right the other day. The pulsing sound stopped. Now all I hear is regular compressor noise! Thanks man. :grin2: How...
  8. I don't think there's a situation. I was just...

    I don't think there's a situation. I was just pointing out that since I'm now cooling from the upstairs, the temperature downstairs barely moves. Each floor is around 950 square feet and each one...
  9. You may be on to something here. I put a level...

    You may be on to something here. I put a level on it and in one plane, it's off by a 1/4 bubble. When I tilt it to correct it, the sound changes. The pulses get further apart in time if you know...

    I had to look that up. That's not cool at all man. :beat:
  11. The HVAC guys just left. They assured me nothing...

    The HVAC guys just left. They assured me nothing was wrong with the furnace, it was just dented on delivery. They added more silicone to stop the air leaks. I'll need to go back over it myself. ...
  12. I've got the install manager coming out today. ...

    I've got the install manager coming out today. I'm going to ask that everything gets sealed up better on the downstairs furnace. The new supply they put in the bedroom really bothers me. It should...
  13. That's what I figured. I think you may be...

    That's what I figured.



    I think you may be cycling through pictures in my photobucket account. The old system did have a duct and flex cut into the side of the coil and it was an upflow...

    Thanks for the responses from everyone. I've got the install manager coming out on Monday at some point to look at the furnace and some other issues I found in the attic. What do you guys think in...
  15. I'm not 100% sure it's silicone, but that's...

    I'm not 100% sure it's silicone, but that's definitely what it looks like and I did see a caulk gun laying on the floor when I walked through one day. I just assumed it was mastic. They put mastic...
  16. Good to know, Originally, they were supposed to...

    Good to know, Originally, they were supposed to mastic seal the return and then insulate it. They called me to ask if the could just replace that one section with flex. The goal was to quiet it...
  17. Well, everything's finished and I need to...

    Well, everything's finished and I need to schedule the inspection. They finished the whole job in two days. Most of it looks very good and it's cooling nicely so far, but it also hasn't been hot,...
  18. That's correct, but the filter grill is on the...

    That's correct, but the filter grill is on the first floor and the furnace is in the basement. The grill is 20 by 20. There's an 8 inch pipe off of top of the 20 by 20 grill that goes to another 12...

    Furnace filter is in the grill on the first floor. The flex connects to 8 by 20 rectangular duct which goes to the first floor where the filter is.
  21. New Installation Going on Right Now - Pics and a question or two

    I'm in the middle of an install of a new system that started yesterday. They finished the furnance/heat pump combo for the first floor. Seems like they're doing a good job so far. They used the...

    I'd love to upgrade to Amana, but I've already blown my budget sky high by going dual stage and getting new duct-work. I'll have to settle for the 10 year unit replacement.

    Labor Warranties going third party?

    I'm getting two systems installed at the end of this month, but haven't pulled the trigger on a labor warranty yet. I'm getting two dual stage Goodman heat pumps (one paired with a variable speed...
  24. Thanks. I have an outdoor sensor on it, but it...

    Thanks.

    I have an outdoor sensor on it, but it doesn't show humidity. I'll look into the 9000. By the way, the thermostat I'm being quoted for upstairs for Goodman MBVC1200 and Goodman DSZC16024...
  25. I believe I've successfully negotiated with my...

    I believe I've successfully negotiated with my wife to get her up to the 2 stage heatpump on the first floor, but I'm not even going to try for the communicating thermostat. My current thermostat is...
  26. Gas Furnance plus HP or AC combo for first floor from an economic standpoint?

    Thanks for all the info you guys have given me in my previous posts. I'm fine tuning what I'm going to put in and trying to see where I can save money. My current estimate for the first floor is...
  27. Gotcha, thanks.

    Gotcha, thanks.

    So Honeywell makes the Goodman stat. Can you buy an off the shelf honeywell prestige stat and have it control the goodman comfortnet system? Is there a specific stat model number to look for? I've...
  29. I've been quoted the Goodman Communicating...

    I've been quoted the Goodman Communicating thermostat, not sure on model number as I was just talking on the phone with the installer about whether or not to do it. I don't have it on paper. Can a...

    Ah, I knew you guys would keep it real and tell me exactly what I didn't want to hear :beat: Seriously though, thanks for your opinion on the matter. I figured it's worth it. It's a shame that the...
  31. Communicating Thermostate Worth It? Goodman MBVC1200 and DSCZ16024

    As an upgrade on the system that I'm about to pull the trigger on, I can get a Communicating Thermostat for the upstairs unit in the attic which will be a Goodman MBVC1200 connected to a DSCZ16024. ...

    Well, I'm trying my hardest no to not be a "Ronnie". It's tough sometimes after reading everything here about how easy it is to get the wrong size and the wrong system if you're not paying...

    One of the other contractors I had requested a bid from gave me the load analysis information yesterday. He just gave me the results. I asked for Manual J. He said he normally used something else,...

    This is exactly what I want to avoid. I don't want to second guess a professional only to shoot myself in the foot because I think I know better. The Internet is a wonderful resource, but many...
  35. I know that SEER ratings are lab stuff and not...

    I know that SEER ratings are lab stuff and not real life. I was mainly trying to elicit a response about whether or not the DSZC16024 is a good unit.:) You and others have kindly pointed out to me...
  36. On the ahri site, I found a match for the...

    On the ahri site, I found a match for the DSzC16024 with an MBVC1200 and CHPF3636 coil for 16 SEER and 9.50 HSPF. For the downstairs, looks like for the GMVC950453B with a CAPF3636 coil and...
  37. BTW, the manual J version used was I think...

    BTW, the manual J version used was I think version 7 for the contractor calcs. What do you guys think of the following equipment suggested for my house:

    Contractor 1
    Upstairs: Goodman SSZ14024...
  38. Unfortunately, dual stage is not in the cards...

    Unfortunately, dual stage is not in the cards price-wise for me at this time. Everyone seems to be very proud of their equipment:eek2: I'm weighing the cost of nicer equipment versus new ductwork...
  39. Each contractor has given me the equipment sizes...

    Each contractor has given me the equipment sizes already, I'm just doing my due diligence after reading on here about how everyone likes to oversize. I had to ask with each contractor to do a load...
  40. How Would You Size two systems based on this Manual J Calculation?

    I've gotten 4 estimates now for a new system in my house. I want one for the upstairs and one for the downstairs. The house is 2 stories and has an unfinished basement. Up and downstairs are close...
  41. Getting Paranoid about sizing

    Sorry if I repeat some stuff, but I'm re-organizing my thoughts here.

    So, I've been quoted the need for 2 ton units up and downstairs. Currently, I have a 3 ton servicing the whole house. It can...
  42. I asked about getting all the ducts mastic sealed...

    I asked about getting all the ducts mastic sealed and he gave me another more expensive estimate that includes a new sheet metal duct in the attic, but re-using my current flex duct and boots, so...
  43. I got that number from the chart available from...

    I got that number from the chart available from this forum Field Duct Sizing Chart. The return will be added when the system is installed, so I'm hoping they'll get that half of the equation right!
  44. Thanks for the discussion, I've got some water...

    Thanks for the discussion, I've got some water based hvac mastic that I used on a couple to seal the flex line to the boot. I also have some in a caulk gun tube that I haven't tried yet. I also...
  45. Reviving this old post as I'm getting closer to...

    Reviving this old post as I'm getting closer to deciding on having work done. I know that 12 by 8 duct can only handle 400 CFM. The main equipment I'm looking at now for the attic is Goodman...
  46. Sealing Duct Work From The Inside? Good Idea? Bad Idea?

    I have 9 flex duct lines coming off a sheet metal trunk in my attic. I started sealing it last year, but quickly lost interest:grin2: I was doing it the way I thought was right, pulling the duct...
  47. The guy checked for me and the 45000 btu furnace...

    The guy checked for me and the 45000 btu furnace with the 2 ton heatpump comes in at 14.5 SEER. Almost no difference in costs for the installation at all. Based on what all of you guys have said, I...
  48. I'm not eligible for any credits anyway. I used...

    I'm not eligible for any credits anyway. I used it up in 2009. Long story short, I got a new single system for the house then. It ended up being relatively cheap after the tax credit. If you look...

    I'm not chasing SEER, I was using it as a guide for the system. I'll be interested to hear back about the 45000 btu furnace. He did quote 3 ton coils for both unit's upstairs and downstairs with 2...

    I talked with the company today. He ran a manual J which showed the need for 2 tons on the first floor. He selected the furnace based upon his data from Goodman which showed him all of the 15 seer...
