    Not sure if Rheem gets the VRFs though. Rheem is making the full residential line for Fujitsu. So now Fujitsu has furnaces, conventional splits, packs.

    With Dan's numbers, you need 11,316 BTUs in heat. The smallest gas furnace I know of is 26,000 BTU 80% or about 21,000 BTU out. Rather oversized. I don't know of any conventional split at 1 ton heat...

    You took out a Thermopride and put in a Payne. GASP. :D But anyway, great job. Turning vanes a nice touch.

    The BK terminal has nothing to do with the Aprilaire automatic humidifier. It's for slowing the blower to do DEhumidify on demand with a control that support that feature.

    We probably would cover it or at least work with you on the cost. Techs SHOULD check schraeders for leaks after taking their hoses off but many don't.

    Lotta low end stats aren't designed for a pump. Got one on my desk, Emerson 1F86-0244, our basic non programmable. Probably would be wise to switch to a HP model but that adds bucks.
