    Coleman Changeout w/ Communicating Thermostat

    I think this is the last one we will be doing, being that we have switched to Trane.

    You guys will also be surprised that there won't be much more Goodman being installed since we are primarily using Gensco now. Our second line will be Heil/Tempstar.

    Just too much of a pain to deal with Johnstone and/or Thermal Supply around here.

    Ha ha, been doing those for 15 years!!

    I love how that thermostat shows the % of modulation, pretty slick. Now if they can just incorporate static readings and estimated CFM's I will be in love.

    One thing I don't like about the Tstat, you have to cut a 2" x 2" hole to fit it, design flaw.

    Right out of the back of the box-truck. Still believe this brake to be the best value in the industry.

    Is the 15% figure the modulation rate?

    Hmm, you know what? I screwed that one up. Looks like that is the humidity reading.


    Keep in mind we had just pulled it out of the garage so, no, the house wasn't 15% humidity .


    Sucky, I really wish it told you the modulation. Not as cool as I thought.

    Wait a minute.

    Right under the big 70 doesn't it say "humidity 43%"?

    What is the 15%? Not familiar with the JCI stuff.

    Nice looking instal BTW.

    That 15% is the setting it is at out of the box for if you had dehumidification setup with a condensing unit (which he doesn't have).

    On our follow-up in a couple of weeks I will make sure and take that off of the display screen so it doesn't confuse them.

    Johnstone pissing you off to huh? Right now they're 0/3 in correct deliveries, on my 16 unit apartment rough, that is time sensitive.
    "Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."

    "Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."

    "Just get it done son."

    Dad adjusted

    Hey Seaton, could you give me a list of tools needed to make a plenum. I would like to learn how to make my own instead of having them made. Do you think it would be worth my while, how much would I have to invest in tools ?

    Trane, huh? Buying into all their hype, too?

    Well, if you like average equipment poorly designed (need I mention that wonderful plastic top?) & an incredibly poor distribution/supply network that takes seemingly forever to get a part in then Trane is for you!

    Good luck, but I know that whatever you install will be done very well.
    WHY?
