I'm not good at being brief, but ... deep breath ... here goes:
Honeywell tru-steam, 6gpd
Skuttle media filter
Lenox healthy climate HEPA
Built 2008. R-18 walls; R-50 attic. 2-pane windows.
1900sf main, 9' ceilings
1900sf basement, 9' ceilings
A year into ownership, I changed filters on my HEPA. Noted the model #. Curiosity led me to look at a few things online. Found out it was the HEPA-20. A CHUNK undersized for our home.
He replaced the -20 with the -40.
Our 2nd truSTEAM failed. First one failed in first 90d.
They put the new (identical one) in.
Four days later, it's taken the 25% RH to 31%.
*I* didn't verify the DIP switch settings, but ... will. Old one humidified with/without heating call.
Similarly, I did a little digging. 6GPD seems WAY undersized for the cubic feet of our (pretty tight) home, in dry, dry Northern Colorado.
Next ... when I was trying to get the truSTEAM to work ... the static pressure self test ran. 1.19" on HIGH fire. Replaced Skuttle filter. SP dropped by only 0.02".
Contractor sent guy to "read pascals" with manometer. HE read 0.48" on high, "the old fashioned way."
I'm skeptical.The Infinity Control uses an algorithm incorporating watt draw and rpms of the motor. Some times we get accurate info and other times we dont. For example, if we do not hook up any duct work to the furnace, the blower has very little load against it and it confuses the system from an rpm standpoint on the blower and we get a high static pressure indication.
If the Infinity Controller is -- effectively -- guessing, then it's making a lot of decisions on bad info, compromising performance and efficiency, no ?
So far, I'm VERY impressed with the Infinity setup, but .... sadly ... am losing confidence in the installer.
I'm considering finding a good consultant, to run Manual J, Manual S, and Manual D -- something I never *saw* from the installer (swears he ran them all).
Any of this sound fishy to any of you ?
Time for me to have the system looked at, by different eyes ???
Thanks so much....
