As much as I would like to say I am an expert, I am not when it comes to the actual performance and settings of a residential gas furnace and air conditioning unit.  So I am hoping some would be…Continue

"this is what I do for 25 yr.  I find most res unit are mid .8" water Col.   The tag on side of air mover says .5 or .4 you can look at SP or feet per min or temp, you get the same model.  This is big,  very big"

"A quick static pressure test would help you determine if you're getting the flow you need over the coil.   You should be able to reference your manufacturer's documentation for the TESP.   If it's too high, then it would be…"

"Sounds like the unit may not be charged correctly if it's not full?"

Curt Kinder replied to Joshua Lloyd's discussion Air Handler Fan Speed
"I'm always amused by HVAC contractors who blame 410a for whatever woes are at hand. The cost delta for an ECM blower equipped air handler is now about $300, and for another $200 deploy a thermostat that senses and signals the air handler that…"

Bob Blanchette replied to Joshua Lloyd's discussion Air Handler Fan Speed
"When used with a TXV (most 410a systems use them) you can get the coil as cold as you want simply by reducing airflow. No need to use a smaller coil"

Eric Kjelshus replied to Joshua Lloyd's discussion Air Handler Fan Speed
"I have tryed that but with the new R-410A I now get higher temps than ever.  To get very high RH humid removal I all so put smaller coils in  so the coil gets very coil, but the EER goes low at same time.    I have been adding a…"

Bob Blanchette replied to Joshua Lloyd's discussion Air Handler Fan Speed
"Ideally you would set the blower up as a "2 speed" with a humidity controlled blower speed. Run 350CFM/ton during humid weather and 450CFM/ton during dry weather. Get the coil down to 35-40 degrees in humid weather for maximum humidity…"

Doug Garrett replied to Joshua Lloyd's discussion Air Handler Fan Speed
"You are correct in stating that the blower fan is set to different speeds for heating and cooling.  For cooling the evaporator coil is designed to operate at peak efficiency with between 350 and 450 CFM per ton of cooing capacity.  Most…"

Kent Browning replied to Joshua Lloyd's discussion Air Handler Fan Speed
"The fan speed needs to be set to provide the air flow to each room calculated by the Manual J.  It was rare to have a contractor do a manual J or adjust the fan speed until recently.  The City of Austin (Texas) required thru the energy…"

Joshua Lloyd replied to Joshua Lloyd's discussion Air Handler Fan Speed
"Ha, that would mean the company doing the replacement would do a manual J.  I don't know of any local HVAC contractors that do a manual J for replacements.  However I did have one done by a friend, so I will have to pull it out and…"
