    Guy today seemed very knowledgeable. Of course, it wasn't quite hot enough to have this vicious shutoff cycle going, but he suspects a sticking or failing TXV, with replacement running me about $...

    I've got a reputable guy coming out in the morning, crossing my fingers. I do appreciate the input. It's hard to know what to expect sometimes, you have to trust the so-called experts when they're...

    Well, he wasn't stumped, he just said it was most likely dirty coils and cleaned them, curing nothing.

    I will call a pro - for sure. But I did have one out last season and he was stumped so that's why I'm trying to gather information before paying someone else to do nothing but tell me my freon level...

  6. A/C compressor shutting off after 2 seconds when it's really hot out

    This only seems to be happening on the hot days, and in the afternoon when the sun is on the west which is where the A/C is, so it's the hottest part of the day for the compressor.

    The A/C runs...

    I'm fortunate that my main gas manifold is right in the same utility room, where the large gas line comes in and is split into smaller lines that run throughout the home. So I believe that won't be...
  8. Should I upgrade to tankless water heaters?

    I'm in Colorado, and currently have 2 x 50gal tank water heaters in a utility room. The heaters were installed in 2006, used for about a year, then drained and the house was vacant until Jan 2013...

    I replaced the board with a new one for $ and it's running perfectly. Took about 5 minutes!

    I'll try cleaning the flame sensor, thanks for that tip. There is a trouble code for that but a minute of work might solve the problem so I'll start there.

    Gulp. I pulled the installation manual and it says that solid light means that it's in a soft-shutdown mode for 1 hour and if it persists I need to replace the control board. :(

    The light is solid on the control board. That's why I'm baffled, the system isn't seeming to throw any error codes at me.

  14. Furnace stops heating overnight often, power cycle restores function

    Good morning,

    I've got a 2006 92% Heil furnace, and often I wake up to a slightly cold house and the thermostat shows it's calling for heat but the furnace isn't running. The LED status light is...

    Had a pro out today, he checked everything and said it was all perfect. The coolant temp was 38 degrees above ambient and he said you want it closer to 20. He acid-cleaned and hosed off the coils,...

    A/C is short cycling daily

    One of my a/c units is short cycling. In the hottest time of the day (2pm,3pm around there) it will be running, then shut off. Then 10 seconds later it'll start for a moment and shut off. It'll...

    I've not vanished, just taking it all in - were there questions of me still unanswered? I'm very appreciative of the replies here, it's a troublesome issue for us and we want to get it resolved.

    South metro area, under 6,000 ft.


    There are direct-vent gas furnaces in the home also but not in this utility room. They are in other little rooms with direct venting to the outside. They...

    I've totally thought of that - the basement is large at around 1,500 sq ft and is open to the rest of the house (no doors closing it off) so technically it's much larger still. Looks like 2 x 12x12...

    Sorry if I wasn't clear - the utility room is an unfinished room in a finished basement.


    I don't think I can really move anything - the water heaters are all but 1/2" from the cement wall and...
  21. Huge combustion air vents are making my house too cold!

    I've just bought a house, custom built in 2006, Colorado.

    The utility room has two 50-gallon gas hot water heaters in it, the room also houses fire sprinkler system with massive water vessel,...

    I will likely head that route - I know what you're saying about the A/C - this is Colorado, it's been furnace one day, A/C the next the last few weeks!
  23. Installed humidifier - now furnace won't go on

    I installed an Aprilaire 700 humidifier, and now it seems my entire HVAC system is kaput! It's a 1998 Tempstar NTC6125KJA1 80% furnace.

    The first thing I noticed is that the door panel on the top...

    I'm definitely up for the Honeywell Steam units - my problem is that my house is too big for them. I've got currently 2,300 sq ft plus another 1,000 in an unfinished basement. The HM506 is only...

    Thanks for the detailed response. We're at about 3000 sq ft, and currently have a standard evaporative/passive blowby system installed on the return, ducted to the supply side. It's 15 years old,...
