    Thanks Dana,

    Actually, maybe I was really unfair to the contractor who visited me, since when he looked over my existing heating system, he threw in so many options at me, which I suspected was...
  2. The first tank I had was an in ground tank. It...

    The first tank I had was an in ground tank. It never leaked, but like the lady you mentioned, I did not wish to fool around with it.

    The professionals came and did do a good job in getting it out...
  3. Thanks Jim, I sort of figured that was the case. ...

    Thanks Jim, I sort of figured that was the case. I finally got through to a couple of suppliers of dual fiberglass oil tanks. Other than a kid with a 22, they should do their job long after I am...
  4. Sounds like good advice to me, but do not bet on...

    Sounds like good advice to me, but do not bet on us not using the air conditioner. Two long power outages lasting a week or more, both occurring because of Irene and Sandy, convinced us that while...
  5. Being stuck inside, as of right now a blizzard is...

    Being stuck inside, as of right now a blizzard is just finishing up most if its nasty stuff and is starting to taper down, I have read very carefully all the previous posts. My old wood furnace has...
  6. I am really getting at odds with what I would...

    I am really getting at odds with what I would like to have and what I can afford. As Dana seemed to guess, my home is probably not all that bad for a 35 year old home as it was originally designed...
  7. Thanks guys for the explanations, as everything...

    Thanks guys for the explanations, as everything said makes good sense to me; I only responded out of curiosity. What may be a very stupid question, is I just could not even imagine how this could...
  8. I am definitely not an electrical contractor, so...

    I am definitely not an electrical contractor, so my opinion is not worth beans, but I do not understand how you would not have a main breaker. Even for an old house, at some point way back when, a...
  9. Tom, there is something about your writings and...

    Tom, there is something about your writings and honesty that makes me wish we were neighbors. I did not understand the installation would run on the strong side of 20 grand as the contractor I spoke...
  10. Thanks again Dana, although I was up all last...

    Thanks again Dana, although I was up all last night playing around with the Webtool calculator. I still do not have its proper use down pat. One thing about being an engineer trying to understand...
  11. Not a question for Dana, as I have already been...

    Not a question for Dana, as I have already been picking his brain far greater than is polite, to say the least. This post is for readers like me, who never even heard the term HRV. I Google it and...
  12. I cannot remember if there is poly or not on the...

    I cannot remember if there is poly or not on the inner side of the rafters. If there is a problem it has not surfaced. However, I do not know what I should be looking for?

    The overhang extends...
  13. Question for anyone! Question for anyone! I...

    Question for anyone!

    Question for anyone!

    I understand the need to have a well sealed home as that will ease and improve the heating and cooling loads. In addition, there could be a host of...
  14. Dana, My house is a modified A frame, modified...

    Dana,

    My house is a modified A frame, modified simply means the pitch of the roof is a 45 degree slope, and never drops to anywhere near ground level. You are right in how it was constructed with...
  15. Thanks Jim and Dana, You have me feeling...

    Thanks Jim and Dana,

    You have me feeling almost embarrassed that you would have spent so much time on a complete stranger in answering so many questions and in such detail. While I do have a...

    LLigetfa mentioned things that I have never even heard of! I did note he is from Canada and it does not surprised me that Canada would have issued far more code than here in Connecticut. Someone in...
  17. I understand that heat pumps become more and more...

    I understand that heat pumps become more and more inefficient as the temperature differential drops say from 68 degrees in one's home to something above freezing. At an outside temperature of say 50...

    I am a newbie here and do not know squat, but that is not going to stop me from putting in my two cents.

    Warm air can contain more water in its gaseous state than cold air. That same warm air...
  19. I had reasoned that since all the duck work is in...

    I had reasoned that since all the duck work is in place I would go with a central heating system. Unfortunately, I have called a licensed contractor, and while I cannot say he is not trustworthy, I...
  20. Help with choice of Heating/ Cooling equipment for Southern New England

    Being a newbie to this site, I quickly became overwhelmed with the core knowledge of this form, and how quickly members are willing to offer their experienced advice on various subjects. No question...

    22976Appreciate the help DonL; yes I can supply a picture since this must be one of most popular blowers out there. Quite a list of vendors that carry it, i.e. A/O Smith, Dayton, Rotom, and probably...

    Cannot argue with anything you stated.

    I did get a response from the vendor (took them only hours to respond) and they did apologized for the poor performance of the product and suggested a...

    I thought about that but even the new replacement blower/motor ran hot. What I am not sure of is if both Dayton and Rotom may use the same Peoples Republic of China manufacturer and just relabeled...

    As far I am concerned, Mexico is off shore when it comes to producing the quality products I have been used to.

    One thing about this form is it does make me think. You are definitely right...

    Probably you are right, I just an old dog and remember the way things used to be.
