    AWESOME! How exciting. Couple clients with them, they LOVE em.

    Will you please periodically share energy and comfort results over the next year?

    Is there a reason you didn't go with the new wifi control?

    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    You know what? I actually mis-stated the P/N on the control. I was typing from memory of an earlier quote and when I went back to look, the proposal I signed DOES specify the new touchscreen wifi control. I had to ask the contractor if he had the right p/n because I wasn't aware there was a newer control and I was expecting to get the older model. I was really surprised when it turned out I'll be getting the new one!

    Yes, the control has a "hidden" menu for installation & service where you can display equipment status, including static pressure.

    Install took a little longer because the condenser came damaged from the distributor's warehouse. The damage was discovered when it was unwrapped and the contractor had to drive about 50 miles to Orlando to pick up another. Besides this delay, the install went very well. They were super professional and did a great job, even with me watching everthing! I'll post some pictures tomorrow.

    Static pressure reading is 0.38.

    Im not familiar enough with the infinity line to know if that static reading was

    A) total static or just supply.

    B) was that at full cooling speed? And what is the full cfm programmed ?

    That's low. It must be whisper quiet

    A) Total static at the coil.

    B) At max cooling speed (1200 cfm)

    Yes, it's whisper quiet inside and out!

    Noise levels are something rarely considered when upgrading HVAC systems. I was surprised how quiet mine is compared to my old one. When my neighbor's unit is running I can't even tell if mine is running or not w/o physically looking.

    Sweet.

    SWEET!!

    And any other observations?

    Of course, it's November.


    With a 0.38" static, I believe that air distribution and new air handler capabilities will minimize any temperature imbalance.
    + FL coastal temperatures are not the extremes seen in central U.S. this summer and in Dallas area many years.

    It will be interesting to be informed of any Relative Humidity improvements. ( reference post #14)

    > 95'F would be rare in Most FL locations, except infrequently near Orlando.

    Hope you included fresh air and humidity control when there is low/no cooling loads.
    This is a complex expensive system but this type of system needs significant cooling load to remove the moisture from the occupants and adequate fresh air ventilation. A small ventilating dehumidifier would make the system complete.
    Keep us posted.

    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"
