    ECONOMIZER

    What's up with the dumb installers? Today was the second Lennox economizer I found this year that was never hooked up. Still coiled up wire harness with remote sensor. Are these guys to lazy to plug them in and mount the sensor ?

    Sad thing is the customers never even no. I'm sure they payed big bucks for them and never saved one dime in electric. The first one I was talking with a Lennox tech and he said it happens a lot. That YES there stupid.

    Yea, hooking up an economizer is a cinch & troubleshooting them becomes natural with practice. Many guys fear them. This past winter i spent more time diagnosing/fixing them than i did heat

    hvac wiz 79. Did any of your troubleshooting involve the unit turning off due to high wind blowing out the unit? Our church LGH 048 needs a solution to over 10 blowouts a year--a skirt around the hvac, baffles, intake or vent extension kits?
    Thanks, David

    Let's refrain from digging up 2 1/2 year old threads, guys.

    Because, many of the posters in the older threads are long gone, and can't interact with you on the topic.

    It is ALWAYS better to just start a new thread, in the correct forum, and let the current crop of posters interact with you about the topic.

    When you post about a problem, supply model and serial number so we can help you faster.

    It works out better that way.

    Maybe we should change their Avatar to a tombstone.

    Well that might be a little morbid. But in some cases, there are people who just don't come here anymore, for whatever reason. Some retired, some left the business.

    Not all of them have passed away.

    Just joking....what I find interesting is the members with old memberships and 5 post. Is there a timeframe for non active members before they are deleted ?

    I can't tell you about this version of the VBB software, but in previous versions from maybe 10 or 11 years ago that I was more familiar with, there was no such time-related deletions.
