Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Am having a Tappan Split system heat pump installed. Proposal was for a 14 SEER system including a FTBD042K heat pump and a BCS2M48C variable speed air handler. However Actual equipment installed is FT4BD-042K and B5BM-X49K-C. The Yellow Energyguide shows SEER 13.0 & HSPF 8.0 Am I getting ripped off, with an installation of a cheaper less effecient system?????

I dont think so that variable speed air handler is a nightmare when(not if) that motor goes bad its 700.00 to 900.00 the regular 3 speed one your getting 125.00 and it will last 10 to 15 years ....... if you realy want fun install a 17 seer system ,you will have your repair guy on speed dial

Is this a 1or 2stage compressor


I don't know specifically..but just about anything with a 16 seer is going to have a two speed compressor combined with a variable speed blower in the furnace. Some utilize 'inverter technology' and utilize a variable speed compressor to deliver ultra- high ratings. Though available for residential use, they show up mainly in systems used in commercial applications. Daiken, Sanyo, Mitsubishi to name a few...and are usually ductless split systems.

I guess this answer really is of no help.....

Goodman SSZ140481AG, what is it? is it 14 seer or 15 seer? I paid for 15seer but the unit has a decal on it reading 14 seer??? Thanks


It is federal law that each new piece of A/C equipment have the yellow SEER rating.
The higher the SEER, the less electricity the system uses to operate.
You need to follow up since it appears your contractor installed a less efficient/expensive system than what you paid for.
Good luck.

You need a tech. All 14 seer units have an X13 motor which speeds up and down on start up. A tech will adjust your tstat programing. Fan stays on after unit is done cooling to help drain water in cooling and cool off heat strips in heating,

How to change a evep coil from a up flowunit to a down flow


What I have seen in the past and I have a few pictures, is you literally turn the entire Air handler upside down and insert the evaporator coil in so it would then be considered downflow, most ac companies have addition info in case you need any additional breacket etc.
Hope this helps.

I have a E2EB-017HA air handler and I want to change it to a variable speed motor. Is this possible


Some companies do sell a variable speed kit. It includes the motor and controls. Get your model and serial number of your unit and contact your local Payne dealer. The can locate the proper kit if available for you.

I have a ruud achiever 10 model upgc-030jas and a high eletric bi


I'm using a calculation of VxA=W. Assuming your system is 240 volts and total amperage of system with 15 amps, I come up with 3600 watts or 3.2KW. Because the outdoor temp was above 35 deg F, the electric heaters probably did not cyle on to frequently if at all. Your calculation sounds reasonable to me. To determine exactly how many KW your system is using, you will need to determine exactly how many volts and amps your unit is running at...both indoor and outdoor units if this is a split system.
I've included a link to a website that helps the homeowner to determine the KWh.

I hope you found this helpful and good luck in your endeavor! :-)
