  1. I wouldn't be surprised. While I certainly did...

    I wouldn't be surprised. While I certainly did expect a 400 dollar jump or so just for the 14.5 from 13 SEER, and I'm sure there is a difference upgrading the furnace, I can't imagine it's that...
  2. I'm sure it will perform better but at a cost of...

    I'm sure it will perform better but at a cost of almost two thousand more, I don't see the value added being worth it. That's my issue with the upgrade.
  3. Makes sense. So knowing that the HVAC guy uses...

    Makes sense. So knowing that the HVAC guy uses York, is there some other York unit I should ask them to price me on? Like I said earlier, one idea from the York rep was to upgrade to the 15 SEER...
  4. This (4 zones) is actually what I was thinking at...

    This (4 zones) is actually what I was thinking at one point.. with the idea that we likely will use that FR, BR, K, mudroom areas MUCH more than the LR, DR, Study area. And in the long term, it...
  5. No separate duct lines? I assume then the setup...

    No separate duct lines? I assume then the setup is to have a damper at each individual ducts? If not, I guess I'm confused on how one can zone without separate duct lines.

    So bottomline, will I be OK with that setup when I want to hook up the automated zoning system?
  7. Regarding the blower, the York rep said something...

    Regarding the blower, the York rep said something like.. "The indoor unit is an TM9X X13 motor, which is not variable speed but is high efficiency." Does that make any sense?

    I'll ask about a...

    I decided to go with running two trunks and do manual zoning for now. Likely next year, when I have some more funds, I'll bring in an HVAC guy to set up the zoning panel, auto dampers, and...

    Interesting videos, btuhack. I watched them both.. a bit over my head technically but interesting nonetheless.
  10. When I keep seeing the fear about ducting not...

    When I keep seeing the fear about ducting not large enough, can you give me an example? Are we talking a scenario where the HVAC guy puts a very small duct (e.g. 4") which of course couldn't handle...
  11. I read this reply and took the questions to the...

    I read this reply and took the questions to the York rep (not the HVAC contractor). I also said I was thinking a 15 SEER instead of the included 13 SEER. She actually took the time to do an energy...
  12. Noted. It may appear that I may be getting...

    Noted. It may appear that I may be getting greedy with wanting 3 or 4, but it sure seems like a nice option to basically shut off that left side of the upstairs in 10 years when most of the kids are...
  13. I believe I understand the concept to be that I...

    I believe I understand the concept to be that I would need one trunk for 1st floor and one trunk for 2nd floor, and each would have a damper. I like the concept of putting the manual dampers in and...
  14. I had actually already spoke to York, then spoke...

    I had actually already spoke to York, then spoke to the York analysis who did the Manual J, then spoke to the Honeywell rep who deals with the zoning equipment. I have asked a lot of questions.
    ...
  15. 2 zone system in new construction..do it now or can I do it later?

    I am having a 2 story colonial 3200 square foot house built in PA. The builder is putting in one 5 ton heatpump, with propane backup. My obvious fear is uneven temps between upstairs and...
  16. Thanks. Sorry about that.

    Thanks. Sorry about that.
  17. Dan, You are the man, but MAN that's a lot of...

    Dan,
    You are the man, but MAN that's a lot of numbers/analysis to comprehend. I will have to reread it a couple times.

    But my initial thought is this..I see what you are saying about the...
  18. It is not "straight A/C", if I understand that...

    It is not "straight A/C", if I understand that term correctly. It is a heat pump. With that said, do I still need to ask why I am getting a 60K instead of the load calc of 43K, or is it a non-issue...
  19. We ended up meeting the HVAC guy AND he brought...

    We ended up meeting the HVAC guy AND he brought along his boss. Again, they assured me we'd be fine with the single 5 ton unit. I asked about 2 stage and they said they wouldn't advise using that. ...
  20. Now only getting ONE UNIT for 3250 sf?

    Just a followup, now that I'm deep into the house build. I am in a bit of a bind. After asking for the Manual J analysis for weeks, the builder never sent anything. Then I met with the HVAC guy on...
  21. Well we're meeting with the HVAC installer today....

    Well we're meeting with the HVAC installer today. I met with another HVAC guy yesterday and did a walkthrough. He was satisfied with most of what he saw, but not all.

    Anyway, are there any...

    Got it. Makes sense.

    And back to my original question about 2 system vs. 2+ zones, there doesn't seem to be a consensus from what I can see?

    I guess the other unanswered question is.. SHOULD...

    I need an interpreter for my non-HVAC brain to understand these past couple posts! Interpreter needed! :LOL:

    But seriously, what does it mean, for my situation?

    Thanks for taking a look at it..it's like Greek to me.
    I guess I was leaning more towards the zoning option (based on your #20 reply, and replies from others) but now you're giving me thoughts about...

    Well they sent me some paperwork on the Manual J analysis. I'm not sure if this is the full analysis or a summary or what. I don't understand any of it, but at least they sent me something. I'm...
