I am not in the HVAC industry but became very interested as I was researching my future gas furnace purchase. I learned much here and it has become an interesting hobby to visit here and learn. I would like to request feedback from all of you on what seems to be such a widespread problem of oversized equipment that has been installed. It amazes me all of the problems (and various complaints) inquired about here after an install. (i.e. short cycling, noise, hig utility bills, too humid...) This is certainly not directed at anyone, either the homeowners or the technicians that installed. This seems to happen so often. Whose shoulders should the selection and installation of the improperly sized equipment rest on? It would seem that the manufacturers should focus on this issue and provide the training needed to install the [I]properly [I] sized equipment. My compliments to all of the very knowedgeable professionals here that do so much to help the consumers of your trade. Guys, never underestimate the value of the information you all provide here. You have steered so many in the right direction.
Best wishes to all,
