I was told there is a 75% efficiency water heater?
I mean, at what point does the extra insulation start having bad side effects
such as collapsing ceiling , etc, R-80??
How high have people gone, R-80, R-100 ??
My attic had R-19, I made it R-40
Is this enough or should I go to R-60
I live in NJ
I have a sealed crawlspace now
and a contractor said that I need to put in a thermal vent in my crawlspace
Apparently the thermal vent opens at 70F and closes at 40F
I have a santa fe...
The Maryland outfit is 150 miles away
I doubt they would travel so far for a single home
I went to aeroseal.com
and located the vendor
Aeroseal of eastern pennsylvania
and called the number
and they said we no longer do aeroseal
I live in south jersey and I am trying to find an aeroseal vendor
The vendors listed in the website no longer do aeroseal
What exactly is different ( internally ) between the santa fe advance and santa fe compact ?
Sylvania vs IAQ source
Both stock santa fe
Who gives better service ?
The santa fe compact comes with a merv 11 filter
How often must this be changed ?
What is wrong with trying to shoot for 35% RH and letting the unit run forever ?
Afterall refrigerators run...
My comfortaire died after 2 years
I am now going to Santa Fe Compact
because it has a 5 year warranty
I have a question
In the month since my comfortaire died
my crawlspace, ( 40 ft x 25...
Anyone installed the Micro-CHP combos that do heating , hotwater and electricity generation?
Any problems in integrating with pre-existing furnace?
Is this alternate setting OK
9AM to 4PM = 80F
4PM to 9AM = 70F
With energy costs continuing to rise (and they will keep going up), variable capacity a/c for residential will only make increasing sense and become more economically viable.
Are you referring...
30 - 50% savings. House may reach 65'F at 5 AM.
The key aspect is that the AC is working at night, when the lower ambient makes it more efficient
It does not matter whether...
I have a Honeywell IAQ9000 thermostat
I live in NJ
I am considering the following summer cooling schedule
9PM - 6AM = 65 F
( meaning the AC will be cooling, when the outside temp is low )

All that A/C cares about is 1200 CFM blowing over the coil. It doesn't matter if a 100 year old blower is doing it or a new Rheem is doing it, just so it is getting the right...
The AC is working fine
I live in NJ
A new AC cost $$$$
What can I do to extend the life of my AC
Starter Kit ?
TXV switch ?
High and Low Pressure Switches ??
So, If I leave the furnace coil alone for now
What can I do to extend the life of my 3 ton R-22 AC
Should I add a TXV switch, starter kit and high and low pressure switches??
My furnace died and I am replacing it with an Armstrong 95V,
variable speed blower furnace
It is a downdraft furnace
I was told that this may be a good time to replace the furnace coil
I plan to upgrade soon to a dual fuel system, which is why I purchased this thermostat
I was curios on how this thermostat would perform before I did the upgrade
You mean the AC will be run until the house is much cooler than the set point so that the humidity is reduced to the target level?
I have a single stage furnace and a single stage AC
I also just installed a Honeywell 9000 VisionPro
which can also control humidity
During summer, how exactly will this control the AC / Blower...
OK, so 6 KWH / day to maintain 35% humidity
How much for 40%, 45%
