  1. OD unit lost power

    May be something as simple as you outside cut off going open under load, which would not be a warranty issue anyway. Good luck ibis1:patriot:

    IQ Drives

    I've had one for about 3 years and have not seen a down side. Very efficient and great at maintaining even temperatures and low humidity levels. (South Florida) Until a major player (Carrier/Trane)...

    Leak Detectors

    I use the Bacharach Informant-2. It's a great detector, very reliable. Although I use it for R-134 and combustible gases (gasoline) it will detect most refrigerants. It may be useful to check for...

    IQ Drive

    IQ Drives

    rick,

    I went with 7.5KW heat, which will pass code, at least in Broward County. I, like you do not see any need for heat at all in our location. A Manual J is always a good idea, but...
  6. EEV's

    The one's Nordyne uses on the IQ Drives work great, may be of the same manufacturer. ibis1:patriot:

    Which contractor?

    I don't know how many contractors are in your area, but I would keep looking. I would not put a lot of stock in those that brand bash, they should "sell" themselves instead. I have to agree with...

    New unit.

    trane,

    By all means if your happy with your current contractor stick with him. If he installed both units, he should consider you a "good" customer and have your best interest at heart. Since...

    Price Range?

    trane,
    My question is if you have not gotten any quotes, then how do you know what's out of your price range? There are a lot of rebates and incentives flying around out there. You may be able to...

    bayoubath,

    Zoning may be a good option if your having a big issue with even temps or even go with two systems, but you need to decide which way your going before you touch the duct work. If you...

    IQ Drives!

    bayou bath,



    You won't find many guys on here that either have or install/service IQ Drives. I have a 3 ton in South Florida that I love. Unbelievably quiet (if that matters) and...

    Filter question

    Filters?

    Sandy,

    David,
    If that's what you require, go with teddy bears whole house unit. If you do that I would go with a much more "basic" unit in the 15 SEER range. That would keep you comfy and keep...

    It will only dehumidify when it's actually running in the cooling mode. However if it is sized correctly and your duct work is adequate, the unit runs far more than conventional...

    Correct design?

    That's the "automatic" relief valve for when the filter loads up. That's why it's called EZ flow! ibis1:eek2:
  24. Pulled the plug!

    EO,
    I may be the only one, but I'm glad you pulled the plug on the old unit. The new unit is very nice and if "dash" recommended the contractor, I'm sure he's very competant. Good luck. ibis1
  25. Repair or replace?

    EO,
    If that repair is really 1/3 of the cost of a complete new system, to me it's a no brainer. Better efficiency, comfort and lots longer warranty. Normally you don't scrap a 5 year old unit,...
