Your biggest problem is

@ April 4, 2013 8:42 AM in Digital thermostat on an incremetal PTAC (type K) with electromechanical contorl box

Who/s gonna push the buttons and where are you gonna cram all the relays needed? You have to order the PTAC's for wall mount tstats if thats what you want to use. Sounds cheep to me for the whole new controller board. Any other way is a can of worms.

Most likely

A bad blower. If you can't find a power switch at the boiler it will soon enough lock up and stop.

@ April 1, 2013 4:25 PM in Window AC water slinger vs dry question

Being is that it's not measurable due to the fact that there are times when the water is in the pan and times when there is not. Same with that A/C unit. I used to always fill those drain pans up after replacing a 9watt cond motor to get the box to pull down.  I love arguing hypotheticals.

If it looks

Like the relay in Pauls first post go to a local supply house and ask for a 90-340 relay or just bring the old one in. Make sure you have the retaining wire that keeps the relay in place.


@ March 31, 2013 4:41 PM in Sandy Boiler Replacements and the Sooting Phenomenon???

Has a blurb in their installation instructions that says the furnace can be used for heating in a house under cost. "providing clean outside air is used for combustion"
.they specifically list "drywall dust" as causing "fouling and plugging of  furnace components."

@ March 31, 2013 2:34 PM in Pump for Washing machine

Fix is to move the washer up where the drain is. That will also make the little women happy since she won't have to keep draging the clothes up and down the stairs. Bring the dryer up as well.

Thank you

May you all have a happy Easter as well. The pork shoulders have been on the grill since 9 am

@ March 29, 2013 5:05 PM in Window AC water slinger vs dry question

Not much. If water is leaking inside the damage from the water will out way whatever increase in eff. And if it keeps momma happy.......priceless. Remember happy wife happy life.

Should'nt Leak

@ March 29, 2013 12:56 PM in Direct vent furnace leaking water?

Water inside or outside. Drain should always be pitched back toward the furnace. Most likly a bad glue joint if leaking from the ex. pipe. If leaking at the furnace a lose clamp or clogged trap maybe.

Sounds Like

@ March 29, 2013 12:52 PM in I hate some subs...

A union guy. I used to work for Kold Draft Ice here in DC. Got a service call on a new install that we just did on a new hotel. Water leak was the call, dispatcher said probley some trash in the drain line he said it was only a week old job. Got there and no trash in fact no drain line. Drain line was cut at the machines and water running on floor. Plumber who was still on job said only union workers can run drain line to his plumbing. I brought the manager over showed him were our lines were cut and told him I would run it again one last time. We vwere called back to do all the other refrigeration repairs after that. All the refrig was done by union shops. One of the first repairs was on a under counter reach in. I found a bad TEV. Went to cut the equilizer line and found it full of soft solder, 100% blocked. Reran line and all was ok.  

Not sure

@ March 29, 2013 12:37 PM in Window AC water slinger vs dry question

But I don't think the cooling effect of the condenser is taken into account as far as efficiency is concerned. It's only for getting rid of the condensate not improving eff. I don't see how such calculations could be made given all the variables

You may

@ March 23, 2013 11:30 PM in Pressure rising to 60psi

Simply have a faulty pressure gauge. Relief was not opening? Was the old tank a extrol tank or the old style. And as in previous post why the 20psi charge? Did you connect the new tank in the same location as the old?

Is it

@ March 23, 2013 11:18 PM in bad burners???

@ March 21, 2013 8:43 AM in Just Don't Get Modcon Boiler Pump Charts!

That you think the feed water line is teed into the return, it's not. There is no dot on the drawing. The water will enter the bottom of the big air bleed go through the pump through the zone out the purge vale. Look also where the supply goes to the indirect, that is not a four way tee, no dot there.

I see it now. No return ball valve. Missed it last night and this morning , sometimes I have to look three times.
