Just be careful not to buy in TOO much. If you beleive at all that the barrier works, then you- by default- have to believe that it will slow down the heat that wants to escape later in day just as...
I was put off by the high cost also, until I found a solar fan for 50 at HD and a solar panel for 50 at HD (you can add more panels if you want more speed- nice feature)
So for 100 I got a fan...
Is there a question buried in there somewhere?
If you need an incredible Trane guy, call Southern Air @ 817-447-8247.
Tell them Keith D sent you.

It's posts like this that clog up the forum and drive the pro's out.
When you signed up for this forum you agreed to abide by the rules, and now you are flagrantly disregarding them.
Good stuff, dash- thank you very much.
1. the total load was calulated byt he trane contractor as 4 tons, therefor we went with the 4ton AH and left the working ducane for $$ reasons. This setup...
I strongly second the solar screen suggestion.
They go on the outside of the window where your bug screens are now (they replace them)
1. They will look WAYYYYY better than chunks of styrofoam...
Hello all- been a while since I posted- all of your advice had gotten me to a very comfortable point with the help of my trusted Trane contractor.
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST BEFORE JUMPING IN...
IT may be expensive to have put in, but in a new home quite a bit of that can be recouped instantly by the smaller HVAC system requirements. The rest is recouped relatively quickly by the obvious...
Try to avoid window tinting if you can. I am not knocking it- I'm sure it works for some folks- but solar screens are FAR, FAR superior to window tinting.
1. What Uktra said- the glass WILL heat...
Response to question #:
1. I'm sorry, are we talking about attic temps or radiation here? RB is for radiation, PV is for attic temps. The arguement has been made here that radiation is the...
It's funny how nobody seem to bring up the simple fact that IF radiant barriers work, then they work BOTH ways.
What this means, very simply, is that when the heat gets through, and it eventually...
That's understandable around here. In some areas the big new McMansions have 5 or 6 PVs running at one time. This is the kind of situation I said was BAAAD news.
They can vacuum the carpet by...
agreed from experience- auto in summer, on in winter.
That is exactly what I have going on in my house, except instead of in the basement, my unit is in the attic of the first floor (basically on the same level as the second floor) I have a trunk that...
dude- calm down.
1. Read the rules- no DIY instructions on this site. If you are not comfortable with what you are doing- go to vegas and waste your money there- becasue you are about to risk...
Sounds like a bad install. I have the EXACT same system except smaller (2.5 ton) and I am very pleased with it's performance.
By the way- claim number 3. "It will run less" is one of the most...

get the icenyne sprayed in there while the ceiling is off.
Radiant barrier won't do you any good, and could make things worse in THIS case. Studies have shown that radiant barrier roof decking...
The big problem with the review thing is that like the BBB, most people only go complain when they are ticked off. If is was a good, trouble free install, they would just go on with their lives and...
Condensation where? On the unit? In the house?
OK- NFRC rating for an Anderson 200 series Narrowline:
Low-E Glass without grilles:
Heat Gain- 113 (356)
UV Xmission rate 16%
I hear you on the no ROI- but I think in this case there would definitely be an ROI at some point.
I live in Dallas. I have already replaced my HVAC systems, so I can't fix what I've already had...
I am not saying that they don't work, but direct window tints are VERY risky. They can cause the glass and frame to heat beyond specs. Sometimes even cracking the glass.
Please trust me on this-...
I will be replacing all of my older windows soon, and was curious from an HVAC standpoint what the effect might be.
How would the MAn J calculate heat load for single pane aluminum...
Careful now, don't get his hopes up. A "leaking" heat exchanger is not "failing". It has "failed" and is therefor covered.
I am truly sorry I offended you, but look at what you are saying:
"anything that I could WATCH more closely over the next few months so I know if the unit is closer to failing"
I think you...
