    Hi-Lo returns

    Thanks again Xavier! I'm on it.
    Since my last post, somwhere in 2004 I think, I've built that 2500 sq. ft. house in Pottsboro Texas I talked about. Installed Hi-LO ductwork, used interior double...

    Cold room in Chicago

    Is that furnace in closet a second furnace? Is there another furnace on first floor?
    Try and get some pictures posted on here. You haven't given a complete picture of installed system.

    Woke up this morning with furnace fan running, inducer motor running and hot to the touch. No heat. After removing front access panel I see red LED on control board blinking one time per 2 seconds.

    Seasonal residence

    Latest consensus on crawl space is to keep it sealed, no ventilation. Vapor barrier stops moisture from soil. Opening vents to crawl space only allows more moisture/humidity to enter.

    Pellet stove in basement

    Wiley,
    Be very careful with this addition to your home. The operational temperatures on the outside of a pellet stove can reach several hundred degrees at full fire. If it's a stove with a glass...

    Final resolution

    Thanks for posting your resolution and the techs solution.
    It's amazing what passes for professional HVAC work. That kinda problem could've been taken care of a long time ago. Additionally the HO's...
  7. Crawl Spaces

    It's interesting to note that this 10-15 year old engineering controversy has finally begun to affect the trades.
    It's NOT that crawl spaces can't be a part of residential home design but crawl...

    final choice

    2 tons per unit IS a lot of cooling BUT if you have future plans for an addition then it isn't. The trick will be to get the initially oversized units to be efficient and able to remove enough...

    Basement and crawl space

    It's difficult getting a good idea about the entire house floor plan from what you've posted. I think though, that the cloth tape issue is the least of your problems.
    What are the vents in the...

    The system

    I'm curious . . . . How well does the system heat and cool? How comfortable are your temp, humidity, and noise levels?
    Is the crawl space below ground level? Is the crawl space insulated? Does the...
  11. The disconnect . . . .

    Dash . . . .
    You are (always) carefully correct about the design processes used in the industry. Your knowledge of equipment, function, and application, is seldom wrong. You have years of...
  12. System design or equipment issue

    The house in question probably had the system designed,the equipment chosen, and the ductwork laid out using all the manuals . . . . by an expert. Still . . . . the owner tells us it doesn't do the...
  13. Hot or Cold

    I did just as you said and as the site directs. There isn't any reference to the "throw" referencing "HOT or COLD" air.
    I believe here is a case where missing engineering data can mislead a system...
  14. 17' foot throw . . . .

    Although the catalog doesn't say it, I'll bet that floor register would only reach 17' moving HOT air not cold.

    Two rooms no heat

    Before you try to fix or replace equipment that's not broken determine for sure why the two rooms don't get enough heat. I would hate to see you spend a couple thousand dollars on a new furnace to...

    Definitely something wrong

    Wow! Somethings not right here. 105 outside, 95 inside. Two compressors seized up in a new house in a couple years? You need to find the cause of these equipment failures. The Pros on here are going...

    2 systems

    Your floor plan may be one of those that would benefit from 2 systems. Remember though that the installers will have to separate the current ductwork and possibly install additional ductwork to make...

    No Frank that's NOT a dumb question. The Pros on here are going to ask you for more info. Like, does the unit ever trip a breaker, what is the actual amp draw, do you ever smell anything unusual...

    The object of homeownership has a lot to do with pride as well as comfort. Any design manual will suggest having returns in all rooms except kitchen and bath. It's a comfort thing. A strong draft...

    Clare . . . . .

    Any piece of "mans" equipment with a woman's name is suspect! I wouldn't continue to live with her.
  22. Return ducts

    Don't eliminate the returns in the bedrooms upstairs, those are important to help keep the 1st floor air circulating . . . . on the 1st floor. Those returns also provide each BDR with supply and...
  23. 2 story with 2 returns

    The house is beautiful but needs help with upstairs A/C. After examining photos and looking at placement of returns (both first and second floor) it's obvious that there is not enough return air...

    I think you and your HVAC contractor should consider using the cooler air in the basement as a energy saving resource. Install enough return ducting to circulate the cooler basement air into the...

    New units plus future addition

    You didn't say how big the future addition was going to be. The heat and a/c calcs indicate your house probably has average insulation and window areas.
