Its possible. you can check into getting a sensor installed. Its the same as a thermostat except there is no way to adjust it. Grocery stores, for example, use this set up. The thermostats are mounted in the office where the employees can control them, and there are sensors in the store itself.

I live in southeast Iowa where would the cold air returns be placed in new construction for a gas forced air system.


as cold air falls to the lowest point. placing them high would allow the cold air to flow down over the occupants
as hot air rises placing them low would allow the hot air to rise past the occupants
consult with an architect as to the best positions to place air vents.
talk with the manufacturers of the gas forced system as they will suggest the best place for their units

Water not heating up


Check thermostat in the machine. Check whether power reaching the thermostat by using a pocket electrical live line tester. to do this you have to run the machine.

If you get power in one terminal, the other terminal of the thermostat should have power. If this OK check the heating element.

If you are not conversant with electrical gadgets, take service center help.

Take care while working on live circuits.

The Heater warms the bedroom areas of the house more efficiently than the living area


Bedrooms are almost always smaller than living rooms and they usually have the same amount of warm air registers. Try adjusting the louvers down in the smaller rooms and opening the living room registers wide open to balance your airflow. Good luck.

Ac unit cools entire home except for one bedroom


The issue may not be confined to airflow alone. An air conditioner makes us more comfortable through two basic rules of physics.
It removes sensible heat (the temperature you feel) and removes moisture from the air. Dry air enhances the bodies own cooling system allowing perspiration to evaporate more quickly which speeds the removal of heat from the body, this is why 85 and dry feels more comfortable than 72 moist degrees.

to ensure the ducts are balanced properly one must use an anemometer which is a tool used to calculate airflow by the pro's. Being that most homeowners do not have access to one there are some good observations to make using a pocket thermometer and your own senses:
  1. Ensure the guest room vent is the same size as the master bedroom.
  2. Ensure the supply duct for the suspect vent is the same diameter and approximate distance from the main plenum (where the ducts originate) as the master bedroom.
  3. Is the air emminating from the suspect vent approximately the same in volume as the master bedroom (does it feel and sound the same).
  4. The issue exists even if the guest bedroom door is left open.
  5. The air temperature measured at the vents is within 3-5 degrees of each other.
If 1 - 4 are true check for #5, if # 5 is false make sure the suspect ducting is insulated or covered well by attic insulation.

If 1, 2, 3 or 4 are false: Ensure the following:
  • The guest room ducting does not have a damper hidden under insulation or duct wrap.
  • The duct has not been crushed or restricted.
NOTE: internaly insulated ducts can be restricted on the inside by fallen insulation while appearing normal on the outside.

If #5 is false (issue goes away if the door is left open) the door may need to be cut off a bit more at the bottom or a grill installed to allow the air coming into the room a place to go.

If none of the above reveal the culprit concider the room itelf, it may have a higher heat load than the others.
A higher heat load may be due to dislodged, compacted and or wet insulation in the walls or attic, feel the walls and ceilings with your hands, how does it compare with cooler rooms?
If the walls and ceiling feel about the same and the tests above did not expose an issue its time to call the contractor back in, make sure the static pressure is checked in each duct a foot or so downstream of the the plenum and again just upstream of the vent. A duct with air pressure higher or lower when compared with the others could mean a variety of issues with the duct or where it connects to the plenum.

Zone valve on my Burnham gas furnace keeps running hot continually. How do I manually shut it off? All wires look good and are connected. The other 2 zones work fine.


ASSUMING THAT YOU HAVE HOT WATER SYSTEM,IT IS TIME TO THINK ABOUT REPLACING THE ZONE VALVE.IF YOU DISCONNECT THE ZONE VALVE,THAT AREA WILL NOT GET
ANY HEAT.IF YOU CAN GET THROUGH REST OF THE HEATING SEASON WITHOUT IT,TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE ENTIRE SYSTEM.THEN DISCONNECT THE POWER SUPPLY TO JUST THAT VALVE.BE CAREFUL TO PUT WIRE NUTS ON ANY EXPOSED BARE WIRES.YOU CAN THEN RESTORE POWER TO THE MAIN SYSTEM.

Unbalanced cooling or heating


You need to balance the system. It's a matter of adjusting the dampers or registers so that you have a little less air flow near the T-stat and more to the other end of the house. Likely you have a return vent near the T-stat. That return draws air to it and likewise the T-stat. If you are getting a lot of air out of the registers on that end of the house damper them to force more air to the other end of the house. Do not close them entirely though. You may have to play with it a little to get it right. I hope this helps. Please remember to rate Fixya rate me.

Not enought heat


I have the same heater and it works great in my bedroom (with a door). the room is about 12 x 14. For my living room and dining area I use 2 or 3 oscillating, ceramic, fan forced heaters spaced out.

As you say, logically...since heat rises, the heat comes off the top. Only 3 things that I can think of would make that heater not work: First, a factory defect (it doesn't heat period). Second, if you have it a room that is too large for that size heater. Third, if the room has no doors (such as a living room).

If you have a draft it can work to your advantage. By placing the heater in line with the draft it will actually accelerate the heat exchange process and distribute the heat faster for you.
