    New System Configuration ?s

    Hello,

    I am in the market to have my entire HVAC system replaced. I'm located in Redwood City, CA where the climate is supposedly best by government test. We have a few hot months, but it's not crazy hot.

    What has been proposed for my single story, 1600 sq foot house is the following:

    Bryant 355CAV 80,000 BTU gas furnace
    Bryant 165ANA 3 ton, 15 SEER condensing unit
    automatic zone dampers and zone control board
    2 honeywell digital setback thermostats
    new insulated duct work


    Since the 355 is an Evolution model, should I go full Evolution with the stats and dampers?

    Thanks!

    I would.

    I'd also want them to do a load calc, instead of guessing, or just replacing with the same size.

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

    IF IT'S NOT BROKE, DON'T FIX IT.
    A 15 SEER UNIT IS A GOOD ENERGY SAVER.
    IT HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE THOUGH THAT WHEN YOU START ADDING DAMPERS AND THINGS, IT'S MOSTLY FOR SHOW AND OR BRAG. IT'S LIKE BUYING A CAR AND PUTTING ON RIMS AND THINGS THAT ARE REALLY JUST SHOW-OFF STUFF. THE CAR WOULD RUN FINE WITHOUT ALL THE ADD-ONS. SO JUST DO A SIMPLE PACKAGE AND SAVE YOURSELF A BUNCH OF MONEY.
