i have paid him 1/3 so far... and he has been very conscious of doing the right thing so far.
i hope he does the same when it comes to the liner
he says he'll drain the condensate from the A/C to...

this supposedly grabs more air from the furnace to pass through to the chimney to prevent condensation. (pros.. how far am I off on this simplistic explanation)
they said the bend in the chimey is...

yes. looks like the liner is either 5" or 6" - I'll check tomorrow. you are right the chimney is about 30' give or take a few.
any ideas on how to get the liner in through a bend?
there seems to...

well the installer is the owner - its a small 3 employee company...
the guy seems very professional and reliable - all the equipment is here exactly as promised and even a couple of free upgrades...
11-19-2005, 12:26 AM
the liner looks like its 6" or 7" diameter - Zflex
I now have a heat-pump and furnace - dual fuel setup - so they said they had to pull new wires.
the water heater is a Ruud - RP40-30S-1 -...

the outdoor unit is not level slanted to one direction..
when I asked the installer about it..
he siad it shouldn't be level to prevent water collection...
slanting it to one direction helps the...

the installers completed installing most everything except the condensate pump, liner and humidifier. They are coming back tomorrow to complete these and also to properly setup the...

I called American Standard customer support and they didn't know for sure what this new model number was. They said it appears to be a new model number and they are going to lookup the nomenclature...

My installers and the equipment is here and they are installing now...

Is American Standard Heritage 12 heatpump 2A6H2036A comparable to Trane XR12: 2TWR2036A or XB12: 2TWB2036A?
It'd be nice to know the equivalent Trane model for the AS equipment I'm...

I was just reviewing the American Standard brochure on Freedom 80 furnace and the features list for the single stage does not include multi-speed blower whereas the dual stage...
yes.. what you said makes sense
and that was what my contractor was suggesting too....
"adding low returns in the basement to draw the cooler air"
may be I typed incorrectly in my rush to type...

thanks for clearing that up. my heater guy really is good.
11-11-2005, 10:34 AM
In that case should I be asking him to add this to the configuruation? Is an expansion valve an addon - or is it part of the coil?
I'm confused now.
Thanks again for helping me all along and this site is awesome...
My contractor suggested adding low returns and making the high returns louvered in the basement to heat more evenly. ...

My contractor said I don't need a separate expansion valve because the coil TXCO36S3HPD already comes with one...
but I see the expansion valve being referred to as TXV and was wondering...
couple of quick questions:
which company makes the Vision Pro 8000 and what are the other brands it is sold as?
Who makes the American Standard ACONT802 or 803 t-stats?
and for my setup above...
11-08-2005, 10:36 PM
My contractor hasn't mentioned which
7-Day Programmable thermo-stat he was going to use...
I'm trying to find out which would be more appropriate.

I told him I wanted to do the aluminum liner and not the Bayvent kit.
Th 6-8% loss in efficiency would more than pay for the liner in the first year itself.
11-08-2005, 06:42 PM
thanks. this is awesome. way better than the Trane deal I was getting and at essentially the same price.
11-08-2005, 05:35 PM
Following is my setup
80% furnace: AUD100C936K
12SEER heat pump: 2A6H2036A1000A
High efficiency coil: TXCO36S3HPD
(The contractor said the above coil comes with an Expansion valve)...

Trey: do you mean the bayvent system? or a basic aluminum liner? (this apparently has to be replaced every 10 years)
or do you mean leave it as is - terracota lined. The chimney is kina wide...
11-08-2005, 05:08 PM
What is the loss in efficiency when using a Bayvent or Chimney Vent kit? Would I be better off with a liner instead (aluminum or stainless)?
I hear the loss with a Bayvent is about 2% from my...
11-08-2005, 04:57 PM
I discussed this with the contractor and although his explanation was not as thorough.... he said if I don't put a liner in - the Bayvent will be needed by the inspector.
and he says the loss in...
