    Is this a fire hazard?

    This panel is for a neighbor's A/C condensor in the same building that I live in, and it's hanging loosely. I reported it to management, who supposedly contacted the owner, but nothing has been done...
  2. Here's a pic of where the copper lines are...

    Here's a pic of where the copper lines are attached. I'm guess that those metal caps on the sides are locking caps. I tried gently turning one of the caps by hand and without any effort it turns...
  3. Two small black plastic caps found after A/C start-up...what were they for?

    I'm wondering what these 2 plastic caps were for. I found these on the ground in front of my new 24ABB348 Carrier Infinity condenser after the system was started up and after the techs left. I...

    The efficiency is 80%. Everyone who I got a quote from wanted to install a 110,000 BTU furnace. My previous furance was higher input than 110 (I think 125,500), but less than 80% efficiency. It...

    6 times per hour

    Question for the pros here: I live in Northern NJ, and my new 110K BTU input furnace was still cycling even in single digits. It was cycling 6 times per hour, and likely never switched to the 2nd...
  6. YouTube video of the Inducer Fan spinning in the 58CVA furance....is this normal?

    The technician who looked at my Carrier 58CVA furance last week (or end of the previous) seems to think it doesn't matter than my Inducer Fan blade appears a little "wobbly" I would like other...
  7. What's ironic is the furnace doesn't seem all...

    What's ironic is the furnace doesn't seem all that loud in the basement during those first 35 seconds. It makes noise, but, hearing it downstairs, I wouldn't think it would be heard 2 levels up,...
  8. Asymmetrical plastic inducer fan blade on Carrier 58CVA furance

    I have a new Carrier 58CVA furance, and, during the ignition phase (first 35 seconds after the thermostat calls for heat), I can hear a humming noise as far away as two floors above the basement...
  9. Is it worth reducing Cycles Per Hour setting on Honeywell CT-3500 thermostat?

    I have a new 80% efficiency Gas forced air furnace w/ variable speed motor. I've been getting cycles that are around 11 or 12 minutes long from the beginning of the current cycle to the beginning...

    Kidde claims that the CO alarm will store peak levels of 11ppm and higher and they can be recalled by pressing the "Peak Level" button. Can poisoning occur below 11?
  11. I meant CO, not CO2. The guy from PSEG...

    I meant CO, not CO2.

    The guy from PSEG claimed that the natural gas detector he used to detect for a gas leak is the "best that money can buy" and "more sensitive than the human nose" when I...
  12. I wasn't aware of 200cc/hr is allowed at the...

    I wasn't aware of 200cc/hr is allowed at the seals of the valve. If that is the case, then perhaps that's what I'm smelling (3.33 CC per minute) Would a Gas Detector be able to detect this, or...
  13. When I discovered the smell last night, I shut...

    When I discovered the smell last night, I shut the furnace electrical switch outside the furnace to the off position, and I actually forgot to turn the switch back on, so the furnace didn't run...
  14. PSEG came over with a detector and say everything...

    PSEG came over with a detector and say everything looks okay. I guess I should go ahead and make that final payment, right?
  15. The detector the installer used looked like this...

    The detector the installer used looked like this one: 347421
  16. The installer just came with a detector (lime...

    The installer just came with a detector (lime green in color) that has an LED and which will beep (and increase the rate of beeping if it detects something). I was told that the detector works...
  17. As it stands, someone from the installation...

    As it stands, someone from the installation company is supposed to come over later with a meter and a soapy solution. Not sure I like the idea of the latter being used inside the furnace. If they...
  18. I called them and left a message, but what I'm...

    I called them and left a message, but what I'm afraid will happen tomorrow is that they ignore me, or perhaps they will send someone over who won't have any ability to determine for certain that it...
  19. I could call them, but keep in mind they already...

    I could call them, but keep in mind they already sent a service tech out once to replace the shutoff valve outside the furnace. They may think I'm a crank, but if you think I should call them again...
  20. Need advice: I believe I'm getting slight whiff gas from this part on my NEW furnace.

    My new furnance (installed Jan 2nd) just passed inspection and I was planning on calling the installer to make the final payment tomorrow. However, tonight, I happened to remove the front cover off...
  21. Ok, sounds good. Thanks.

    Ok, sounds good. Thanks.
  22. I got them to fix it today, so that it now is the...

    I got them to fix it today, so that it now is the way it was originally, with no exhaust vent pipes slanting downward. I had pics of the way it was originally, in case they were to argue, but I...
  23. Thanks. I will insist they fix it tomorrow.

    Thanks. I will insist they fix it tomorrow.
  24. Part of water heater vent pipe is now sloped downward after furnace installation

    I just got a new furnace installed today. The guys are coming back tomorrow to install the A/C condensor. I notice that the water heater vent pipe is not the way it used to be. There used to be,...
  25. The furnace is in the basement (and the furnace...

    The furnace is in the basement (and the furnace room actually has sheetrock in the ceiling, and the thermostat is on the first floor, not directly above the furnace, and the room below the thermostat...
