    single phase or three phase? (if its residential its probably single)

    what part of the country?

    i will also mention that all the bells and whistles are the first thing to go wrong,..anytime you try to make one thing do everything it fails,...thats the problem with heat pumps in general,...they dont cool good and the dont heat good,....they do both ok (i guess),...(you would get better results with a conventional ac and a seperate heat source)

    and no,..i am not a trane salesman..(like the bryant dude that posted earlier)

    Where are you getting this information???

    Far superior? Bells and Whisles? Heat pump can only do ok? 3 phase?


    You need to slow down there turbo. You are quick to throw out brand names like they mean something.


    Brand names are a thing of the past man. Now a days, your Trane coil is made in the same factory as a Carrier...just a different corner.

    What I am getting at is all components are now made out of country. Mainy Mexico and China. And then assembled here in the USA. So how does that make 1 brand better than another???


    Not tryin to bust your balls there supertech. Just trying to get and give some perspective.
    I fully support the military and the War on Terrorism.


    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    One more t-stat question, they don't stock the new White Rodgers 1f95-1291 but can get it "in a few days".

    What about the Carrier TP-PRH stat? I looks like it is similar. The only question is does it have the proper DHM contacts and can it be made to close them (supply 0V) to make the Trane handler dehumidify.

    I decided on the variable speed Rheem handler, now trying to come up with an IN STOCK t-stat for it.

    Thanks!

    Since you seem to be looking for a stat that has the deatures of the Honeywell IAQ.
    Why not just get the Honeywell IAQ?

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    My contractor's wholesaler did not have the IAQ in stock, he (contractor)called a few minutes ago and agreed to supply me the IAQ and external temp sensor from another wholesaler at no extra cost (compared to what he had quoted me). Probably costing him a little extra since he is having to use someone other than his normal source. Getting the "free" external temp sensor installed is a nice bonus.

    So I am getting the Rheem RPNL030 2.5 ton 410a heat pump, RHKL3617 variable speed handler, and the Honeywell IAQ t-stat installed in the morning.

    The Trane would have been less money but would cost a bit more to cool and a good bit more to heat than the Rheem. The Rheem with the fixed speed X motor would have been less as well but I wanted to try a variable speed blower this time. What put me off the variable speed Rheem was the price, but I did not realize the quote included a programmable t-stat w/humidity AND the variable handler. Given the cost of the t-stat and installation of it I decided that was a fair price for the upgrade. "In theory" I will save back some of the money by being able to run a higher set point and dehumidifying during cooling season. That is one thing the ARI / CEE ratings and number don't reflect since fixed or variable speed they are all run full speed for the tests.

    Is this the way you guys finish off your work? Just wondering, maybe it is just me - but this just does not look good.

    All they needed to do is add a few tie wraps to neaten it up. Plus, where's the plastic circuit breaker seal/cover that comes with the heater pak? Post some more pix!

    There is a "knock out" in the door to the handler and the breaker for the strip heater is poking through that.

    Attached is a picture.


    I don't have any pictures handy, but the condensing unit seems to be installed and placed fine and the rest of the handler install appears fine - the low voltage wiring is what really jumps out at you.
