Question about Heating & Cooling

3 Answers

We have a storage container where we store rare books. My boss would like to install a heat pump and would like to do this himself rather than hire a licensed hvac. The unit is 8 x 20 and is stored inside a hangar. What type of unit do you recommend? I appreciate any and all help. Thank you.

    Thank you very much for your quick response. I've looked into Trane and am unable to find anyone that would sell a unit unless we go thru a licensed hvac person. He wants to be able to buy the unit and have our maintenance man install it. Do you know of any place that would sell the unit to a consumer? Thanks again!!

    Thank you so much! I will get with my boss and see what he says! Appreciate your help! If this doesn't work any other ideas???

  • bciomber Jun 26, 2009

    Thank you so much! Have a great day too!!

  • bciomber Jun 26, 2009

    Thank you. Unfortuantely I'm still looking at other options. My boss doesn't really want to purchase from Ebay. Not sure why. Do you have any suggestions on a heatpump for a storage unit that doesn't take a licenses HVAC to install???? I appreciate any and all suggestions.

It runs around 400. this truely would be your best bet rather than keep spending abunch of money on cheap little units that dont work that well in the first place.

I would recommend the Trane Heat Pump.

The Trane heat pumps come in three groups: The ultra efficiency units, the XL19i, and the XL16i, which are the highest rated. XL15i and Xl141, are in the middle and are super efficiency units. XR14, XR13 are standard efficiency models. Even the XR13 and XR14, which are the lowest end models, amazingly well.
The typical Trane heat pump has a digital thermostat, which is entirely programmable, which controls the whole system. They also have an air handler, to circulate air, and an air cleaner that filters dust in the air. Different models have different options.

A trained professional should help you install a Trane heat pump.

Trane heat pumps, which are known for their reliability and quality, are installed and homes and businesses everywhere, in many different climates. They can run properly for many years, without needing maintenance.

    You may check ebay.com. You may buy a Trane Heat Pump in less price. Here's the link:

    http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...

    Please let me know if it's okay for you to purchase in e-bay so that I could look for more store.

    Sorry, but e-bay is the last option. I searched everywhere but I couldn't find it except for the two sites, which is e-bay and the Trane Web site.

    Thank you so much and have a great day!

Where can I find a replacement roof panel for a Leisure Stronghold 10x8 shed?


Probably not a very good answer since the Owner / Installation Manual for this shed specifically states "do not contact the store....". Instead, follow instructions in the manual and contact US Leisure at 1-877-638-7056. Ext 6. Get ready for voice mail and punch the buttons HE...LL. These people apparently cannot hire folks to run their phones or customer service department. Sat on hold and running buttons in their system for 35 minutes the other day before giving up.

Is it better to store food in plastic containers or glass ones?


Glass containers are easier to clean than plastic ones and they don't retain the food's smell as much. Therefore storing food in glass containers is probably better.
However, if the food has to be carried something, for example it needs to be stored in the fridge for the next day's lunch and brought it to work or school, glass containers can be quite heavy to carry and therefore plastic containers can be a better choice.

I have a rheemglas standard electric 40 gallon water heater and the hot water in the shower or any where in the house only last 3 maybe 4 mins.....?


You should have two panels on the front of your water heater most likely painted blue. Each of these panels contains a heating element. The top panel contains the reset switch. Unscrew and remove the top panel and you'll see the reset switch - it is the red button. Press it to see if it clicks. If so, your hot water should last longer.

If it does not last longer than you stated, then you most likely have a bad heating element. The problem is that unless you remove both elements, you won't know which one is bad. If you don't feel comfortable turning off the water valve to the heater, turning off the power to your water heater at the circuit breaker box, draining the heater of it's water using a garden hose, removing the wires from the elements, removing the elements and installing new ones from your home improvement store then you may want to hire a plumber to do it.

The process is fairly easy but time consuming. The most time is draining the water heater. If you do choose to do it yourself, you will need to get a special "wrench" from your home improvement store to remove the heating elements first. The store can help you with the element(s) you need once you take them in.

My digital gas gage reads full all the time I have to go by my miles and sometimes that don't work and I run out of gas..how do I fix my problem


This is a common problem and to correct this problem will require the replacement of the fuel sending unit. The fuel sending unit is inside the fuel tank and has the fuel pump mounted in it. This requires the removal of the gas tank and then the fuel sending unit can be removed from the tank.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Fuel pump unit 8470h037.gif
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve fuel system pressure.
  3. Remove fuel filler cap to release fuel tank vapors. Leave cap off until repairs are completed. Gasoline fuel vapors are extremely flammable. Ensure that fuel is stored in a container that can be properly sealed. Never store fuel in an open container. Store container in a safe place away from heat.
  4. Remove fuel tank by performing the following:
    1. Step 1: Drain fuel from the tank into an approved container for storage.
    2. Step 2: Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    3. Step 3: Remove rear stabilizer bar at links, pivot bar downward.

    6. Step 6: Disconnect tank unit harness from rear body harness.
    7. Step 7: Support fuel tank and disconnect 2 fuel tank retaining straps.
    8. Step 8: Remove tank from vehicle.
  5. Remove sending unit, gasket and pump assembly by turning cam lock ring counterclockwise. Lift assembly from fuel tank and remove fuel pump from fuel tank sending unit.
  6. Pull fuel pump up into attaching hose while pulling outward away from bottom support. Take care to prevent damage to rubber insulator and strainer during removal. After pump assembly is clear of bottom support, pull pump assembly out of rubber connector for removal. To install:
  7. Push fuel pump assembly into attaching hose.
  8. Install fuel tank sending unit and pump assembly into tank assembly. Use new O-ring seal during reassembly.
  9. Install cam lock over assembly and lock by turning clockwise.
  10. Support tank and position in vehicle. Install tank straps and secure with retaining bolts. Tighten to 25 ft. lbs. (33 Nm).
  11. Connect tank unit harness to body harness.
  12. Connect hoses to filler and vent pipes. Tighten clamps.
  13. Connect hoses and pipes to tank unit.

Winter storage


what to do with fluids?If your brake fluid is in need of changing do so before long-term storage. Similarly hydraulic clutch fluid should be changed before you store your bike; both systems may suffer failure if moisture gets in. Also make sure your coolant is fresh, as deposits can form from old fluid. For service intervals, consult your owner's manual.,,,
