    And then I saw the Fujitsu

    This afternoon visited another installation - this time an 18,000 BTU Fujitsu Halcyon. What a difference. 23 degrees outside with a strong wind blowing out of the northwest- about 10 or 11 with the...
  2. Saw a Cheap Chinese 24,000 BTU Mini Split in Operation

    Yesterday evening I had the chance to see a cheap (relatively speaking) Chinese 24,000 BTU model (Air Tempo) in operation and I was surprised at how little heating it seemed to be doing. Outside...

    Thanks, Dana. I did some measuring based on your figures and came up with a heat lose of about 21,500 btus and hour at -5F which the FE18 should be able to handle more easily than the FE12. Our...
  4. Mitsubishi Mini split -should I worry more about enough heat or short cycling?

    Wondering between a Mitsubishi Mr Slim MSZ-FE12NA or MSZ-FE18NA which way to go.

    I have a 170 (approx) year old 1 1/2 story house, post and beam construction built on a stone foundation with a...

    Thanks again, Dana. I see there's no point in trying to draw the air in from inside the porch with that much air demand. There's only some 2,000 cubic feet of air on the porch at any one time.

    One other question, if you don't mind. I saw this photo of a mini split installation on another site. I have a similar unheated sun porch with panels around the side that we open in the summer but...

    Thanks very much, Dana. And thanks very much too for all the rest of your very interesting posts on heat pumps. They've been very informative and useful.

  8. Will an air to air ductless heat pump on house cause too much vibration?

    I'm planning to install a Mitsubishi mini split ductless air to air 18,000 BTU heat pump with the outside unit hung on an outside wall and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this type of...

    Thanks, Jim. That's both interesting and good to know. Gravity's not going to do it.

    Jadnashua - you were right about the valve specs. 20 lbs is the minimum they work with. As pressure tanks get quite expensive as they go up in size I guess I'll go with a plain tank and a hose. ...

    I should have mentioned I'm in a rural area and use a shallow well jet pump with pressures between 25 and 40 lbs with a bladder pressure tank now. That's not much pressure compared with city...

    Yes. I'd put it on a stand so gravity would send the water into the Drake tank.

    Emergency Water Tank for Toilet

    We have frequent power outages here on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia so I'd like to hook up an emergency water tank for our Toto Drake toilet that we've installed thanks to all the information on...

    Was their grey water separate as well or do you think that's not much of a consideration in the horizontal movement of waste?
  16. Flushing more often to add more water is about...

    Flushing more often to add more water is about the only one I can think of. With the old toilet I'm putting through seven gallons per flush vs only 1.6 with the Toto.
  17. Thanks for the quick replies. I didn't think it...

    Thanks for the quick replies. I didn't think it made it there on the first flush, but as long as it eventually gets there on just toilet flushes and no grey water, I'm happy. If you guys are...
  18. Will Toto Drake/septic work with no grey water in toilet line to add water?

    Thinking about a Toto Drake. It would go on the 2nd floor of my house so there's a 2 story drop from the toilet down the line to the ground and then about 15 feet to a 90 degree turn and another 35...
