    My HVAC tech will come back around Monday or so to take a look at it, I told him it was leaking.

    The green goo looks the same color as those drain pan tablets, so I guess it must be that. But should it be leaking?

    I had the condensate safety switch installed on 4/8. The first day I noticed that there seemed to be some green crud and some green liquid at the bottom of the safety switch, so I put a paper towel...

    It's located in the utility room in the basement, next to the natural gas tank water heater and electric clothes washer/dryer. There are 2 bedrooms nearby, one on each side of the utility room.
  6. Should I get a condensate safety switch?

    My air conditioning technician was over today to do a scheduled spring inspection of my system, and he recommended that I have him install a condensate safety switch. The price didn't seem too high....

    I have had a bad experience before with a portable AC unit (it began leaking and a pool of water had nearly reached the surge detector when I saw it) and do not wish to have a portable dehumidifier...

    I have explored the dehumidifier option, but it was super expensive and it seems that it required surgery on the house, opening up a hole in the utility room and placing the dehumidifier in a nearby...

    My contractor came today. He did not attempt to install the Visionpro IAQ, didn't believe it could be done with my XL16i. I'm kicking myself for not going with the first estimate that their company...

    My current humidity range is 50-65% (the humidity picks up during the night). Do you suppose that with the VisionPro IAQ, I could see a reduction in that range, maybe to 50-55%? I'm trying to...

    Is it true what my contractor says, that the furnace will have 2 heating stages even though it's just wired for 1 heating stage at the thermostat?
  13. I was able to get a price from my contractor for...

    I was able to get a price from my contractor for swapping out my Trane TCONT802 thermostat with a Honeywell VisionPro IAQ. I think the price is reasonable. My HVAC contractor said that it probably...

    When I look up the Honeywell Visionpro IAQ, it seems it comes as a kit, including the thermostat, an outdoor temperature sensor, and an equipment interface module. Are those useful to me? I think...

    I got a Black & Decker thermal leak detector, and today is a sunny morning, so I used it on my window. Ambient wall temperature in my room is 71.5F in non-exterior walls. Most parts of the window...

    Is there some way for me to tell if I have comfort r enabled now?

    So after getting around 4 estimates, I'm reaching the conclusion that getting a whole-house dehumidifier is priced out of reach for me, in addition to being physically difficult to do in a cramped...

    What does that say about my home? Am I gaining humidity at an accelerated pace? Or is this normal? Should that change my mind about whether to get a dehumidifier and humidifier?
