    generator sizing for central air

    When sizing a generator to run your hvac, do you size it for the compressor LRA or some percentage of? The LRA is 109 and the rla is 19.9.

    It's a trane xr13 3.5 ton unit on a double 30amp breaker.

    Grout not included?!

    My contractor tells me that buying grout and sealer is not included in the installation. He's telling me that I have to use part of my tile allowance? Seriously?! What do you guys say?

    Variable speed or higher efficiency furnace

    Where is the better trade-off? Would a 95% single stage be a better investment than a 90% variable speed?

    Im trying to figure out where to spend the money. Thank you for the opinions!

    Bryant Preferred or Evolution?

    Is it worth the extra coin to go evolution? It would be a gas furnace and AC system.

    Can you use the evolution controller with the preferred series? Thanks!
