    It's going to be 10kw backup, heat loss came out to right around 34k. Not sure I want or need to stage them. I know the honeywell panels dont do a good job of that.

    Just found out this morning that they want to condition the basement. Going back and forth on emails right now telling them a mini will be the best solution. So that should tack on some more work once we get that worked out. They have 4 fans, a dryer and range that I told them I can just T & M while I'm there.

    This is new construction right? Have you considered they may do something to halt residential construction? I hope it works out well for all involved but may want to consider that in payment arrangements etc...JS

    Natural gas is plentiful in my area... few HP's (other than apartment buildings that do not have gas at all).

    I have never tried to stage strips as backup with a Honeywell zone board...
    Did it with a few relays and an EWC board years ago.

    We have done 3 and 4 stage heat (staged strips after HP) without zoning a few times... worked pretty well!

    Figured if you were gonna do it... to ask you to start a thread in the PRO section and detail it out for us...

    GA's basic rules of home heating and AC upgrades:
    *Installation is more important than the brand of equipment
    *The duct system keeps the house comfortable; the equipment only heats and cools (and dehumidifies)
    *Cheap is not good, good is not cheap; however expensive is not a guarantee of quality!

    Nope, dont touch new construction but occasionally. This is a fully gutted remodel. Referral client from a friend of a friend.

    I wouldn't bother staging 10 kw. I did on HP's stage 15/20 kw heaters using outdoor tstat

    Still working. A lot of people don't want to take on the challenge of refrigeration. But it is always needed.

    Install some Fujitsu medium static slim duct systems. Air temp also has equipment that is cheaper but it has lower ESP to deal with. There is also Mitsubishi but their equipment is an arm and leg cost wise.

    On a side note as some of you guys know me that I work in two fields. My hvac work picked up some pace once it warmed up. I took care of most of those folks already. My other job working in a pathology lab as histotech we have seen a hugh drop in receiving specimens ( we mainly get biopsy dealing with stomach issues). Alot of doctor offices are closed and alot of outpatient centers have slowed down or completely shutdown ( for example everything we received from NY is shut down now)

    Where we use to get 700-800 cases a month the number has gone down to about 100-130 cases. The company I work for is a real big company and weren't sure what they had planned for us but at the end they did right with us. They have now gone down into a semi or almost complete shut down mode. They plan to pay us out 2 weeks and they staged everyone schedule so we work also one week for a total of 3 weeks of pay we should still get then after that they are hopeful this goes away or whatever government benefits will kick into place.

    So it's kinda nice I'm off one week starting this Monday then I work the following week and then off again. The thing that does suks there is barely any work so I'll be pulling straws looking to do something for 8 hrs loll. I get bored too quick like TB was saying.... Loll maybe I'll go on ARP and bother some of you folks at that time.

    Hey MoFo...

    ARP has calmed down a bit since you left... and some fresh blood would be fun...
    The usual folks are stirring the usual pots... nothing new

    Will send you a PM...
