  1. Found Proper Sizing for the upstairs A/C Today

    2 Story House (1850 square feet living with basement/garage below) built in 1987. We have replacement windows, but there's only about 5 inches of blow in insulation in the attic on average. Each...

    Like I said, I put a 3 amp back in there, so hopefully they will not be back any time soon. I remember reading about someone on here troubleshooting and using a 5 amp instead of a 3.
  3. Went up to check behind their work and found a...

    Went up to check behind their work and found a blown 5 amp fuse sitting on top of the air handler. Checked inside and they had used a 5 amp fuse. I went ahead an replaced it with a 3 amp fuse I...

    Lots of shorts, but I don't know why. I've never been at home when they got fixed. Hopefully this is the end of it. I've probably had 6 service calls since the installation in July 2013. First...

    According to my wife, they found two more shorts. They were about to replace both the line to the heatpump and the line to the thermostat, but got it working without having to do so. Hopefully, it...
  6. If it's on the run from the air handler to the...

    If it's on the run from the air handler to the heatpump, that line is zip tied to the copper line, so they probably won't be able to use it to run the new line, they'll basically be starting over. I...

    My wife was home when the tech came by on Monday. They said they found a short, fixed it, and then it shorted again. They needed to come back with another person to help test for the short. That's...
  8. Actually, it blew the fuse just before the first...

    Actually, it blew the fuse just before the first mowing. I did check around out there though and don't seen any evidence of a nicked line or anything. However, I did have some problems in the past...

    I put a 3 amp fuse back in since that's what is specified. It's blown already. I'll be calling the HVAC company on Monday. 3 amp fuses aren't the most common fuses around by the way.
  10. I just replaced the fuse and turned everything...

    I just replaced the fuse and turned everything back on. I ran a test of each system separately and it kept running. As soon as the fuse pops again, I'll make the phone call to the installer who put...

    Thanks, maybe that will help speed up the HVAC company's troubleshooting.
  12. Thermostat seeing no voltage, fuse blown in air handler

    I was on travel for work this week, so of course, the heatpump stopped working while I was gone. When my wife called, I had her check the breakers and none are tripped. She looked and the...
  13. So, according to my wife, the tech has already...

    So, according to my wife, the tech has already fixed the problem. He told her that one of the wires was too close to a piece of copper tubing and it had grounded or ungrounded which was kicking out...

    FWIW, I had them test static pressure when they installed the system. It was designed for 0.5 inches H20 and it measured just under that. Thanks again.
  15. Thanks for the replies. Filters are clean. I...

    Thanks for the replies. Filters are clean. I have a 20 x 20 and a 14 x 14 return on the system. I couldn't tell you size of the ducting on those off the top of my head though. If the tech...
  16. Heat Pump Down - Third Service Call Incoming, Any Ideas?

    The upstairs unit in my house was new in July 2013. It's a Goodman DSZC16024 Heatpump, CHPF3636 coil, and MBVC1200 blower. Anyway, last winter, it went down once during a long, cold period with a...

    They were out yesterday and I forgot to ask about measuring static pressure. I know there is basically none on the supply side based on the fact that you can't really feel any air moving into the...

    Problem is resolved on the sound. :grin2: The service guy took the top off and found that the line that leads to the sensor for the TXV was touching the suction line filter drier (in blue in the...

    I'm actually surprised at how well it is working. The A/C hasn't made it out of first stage while I've been there without me changing the temp to make it happen. The master bedroom on the end of...

    Yes, 12 inch T's to 10 inch both ways. 3 supplies on one side and 6 on the other.
  21. 600 CFM through 10 round pipe? Possible?

    The install manager has assured me that 10 inch pipe will handle 600 cfm. New system is 2 tons and has a 12 inch round pipe off the air handler with a T into 10 inch pipe. 3 6 inch flex ducts on...

    Well, the fix lasted for one cycle. Oh well.

    Holy crap! You're the man! I did that today again. I guess I didn't do it right the other day. The pulsing sound stopped. Now all I hear is regular compressor noise! Thanks man. :grin2: How...
  24. I don't think there's a situation. I was just...

    I don't think there's a situation. I was just pointing out that since I'm now cooling from the upstairs, the temperature downstairs barely moves. Each floor is around 950 square feet and each one...
  25. You may be on to something here. I put a level...

    You may be on to something here. I put a level on it and in one plane, it's off by a 1/4 bubble. When I tilt it to correct it, the sound changes. The pulses get further apart in time if you know...

    I had to look that up. That's not cool at all man. :beat:
  27. The HVAC guys just left. They assured me nothing...

    The HVAC guys just left. They assured me nothing was wrong with the furnace, it was just dented on delivery. They added more silicone to stop the air leaks. I'll need to go back over it myself. ...
  28. I've got the install manager coming out today. ...

    I've got the install manager coming out today. I'm going to ask that everything gets sealed up better on the downstairs furnace. The new supply they put in the bedroom really bothers me. It should...
  29. That's what I figured. I think you may be...

    That's what I figured.



    I think you may be cycling through pictures in my photobucket account. The old system did have a duct and flex cut into the side of the coil and it was an upflow...
  30. Thanks for the responses from everyone. I've got...

    Thanks for the responses from everyone. I've got the install manager coming out on Monday at some point to look at the furnace and some other issues I found in the attic. What do you guys think in...
  31. I'm not 100% sure it's silicone, but that's...

    I'm not 100% sure it's silicone, but that's definitely what it looks like and I did see a caulk gun laying on the floor when I walked through one day. I just assumed it was mastic. They put mastic...
  32. Good to know, Originally, they were supposed to...

    Good to know, Originally, they were supposed to mastic seal the return and then insulate it. They called me to ask if the could just replace that one section with flex. The goal was to quiet it...
  33. Well, everything's finished and I need to...

    Well, everything's finished and I need to schedule the inspection. They finished the whole job in two days. Most of it looks very good and it's cooling nicely so far, but it also hasn't been hot,...
  34. That's correct, but the filter grill is on the...

    That's correct, but the filter grill is on the first floor and the furnace is in the basement. The grill is 20 by 20. There's an 8 inch pipe off of top of the 20 by 20 grill that goes to another 12...

    I'm in the middle of an install of a new system that started yesterday. They finished the furnance/heat pump combo for the first floor. Seems like they're doing a good job so far. They used the...

    I'd love to upgrade to Amana, but I've already blown my budget sky high by going dual stage and getting new duct-work. I'll have to settle for the 10 year unit replacement.

    Labor Warranties going third party?

    I'm getting two systems installed at the end of this month, but haven't pulled the trigger on a labor warranty yet. I'm getting two dual stage Goodman heat pumps (one paired with a variable speed...

    Thanks.

    I have an outdoor sensor on it, but it doesn't show humidity. I'll look into the 9000. By the way, the thermostat I'm being quoted for upstairs for Goodman MBVC1200 and Goodman DSZC16024...

    I believe I've successfully negotiated with my wife to get her up to the 2 stage heatpump on the first floor, but I'm not even going to try for the communicating thermostat. My current thermostat is...
  42. Gas Furnance plus HP or AC combo for first floor from an economic standpoint?

    Thanks for all the info you guys have given me in my previous posts. I'm fine tuning what I'm going to put in and trying to see where I can save money. My current estimate for the first floor is...

    Gotcha, thanks.

    So Honeywell makes the Goodman stat. Can you buy an off the shelf honeywell prestige stat and have it control the goodman comfortnet system? Is there a specific stat model number to look for? I've...

    I've been quoted the Goodman Communicating thermostat, not sure on model number as I was just talking on the phone with the installer about whether or not to do it. I don't have it on paper. Can a...

    Ah, I knew you guys would keep it real and tell me exactly what I didn't want to hear :beat: Seriously though, thanks for your opinion on the matter. I figured it's worth it. It's a shame that the...
  47. Communicating Thermostate Worth It? Goodman MBVC1200 and DSCZ16024

    As an upgrade on the system that I'm about to pull the trigger on, I can get a Communicating Thermostat for the upstairs unit in the attic which will be a Goodman MBVC1200 connected to a DSCZ16024. ...

    Well, I'm trying my hardest no to not be a "Ronnie". It's tough sometimes after reading everything here about how easy it is to get the wrong size and the wrong system if you're not paying...

    One of the other contractors I had requested a bid from gave me the load analysis information yesterday. He just gave me the results. I asked for Manual J. He said he normally used something else,...
