think I might have a leak in one loop/circuit off my uponor/wirsbo manifold. I would like to close off this loop but keep running hot water through the remaining loops. This way, I can keep heat on...

can I plug orofice for vent on backflow preventer?

Hi folks,

I was going to sweat in a backflow preventer for my boiler system just after the shutoff (that is, closer to the boiler than the shutoff). This would put the preventer upstream of the...

I was thinking about replacing the furnace but not the A/C.

Had a sales guy come out and tell me that he thought the A/C coils were icing up and would just rust the new furnace, so I should...

Looks like it's the Honeywell limit control switch. Burner goes on, switch temp increases until fan goes on, burner goes off, fan stays on, switch temp decreases a bit, gets stuck. I tapped on the...

guidance on placing swamp cooler

Howdy,

I've got an ancient furnace that I'm about to replace. There is a central A/C along with it.

I'm thinking it would be cheaper to leave the old A/C in there and let it die of old age--...

if I get a new furnace, do need new AC?

Hi,

My 22+ year old Rheem (RGDA-075A-CR) needs some electrical work and has a really rusty exchanger that I thinking is becoming a safety hazard. I'm thinking I should stop being cheap and replace...

Howdy again folks,

Sorry for the delayed reply. I'm leaning towards replacing the furnace after looking into the heat exchanger compartments. I have the thing serviced each year with a leak test....

Hi Daddyjohn,

Thanks for that. I'm heading over at lunch to have a look. I'll bring my multitester and check the wires as per your recommendation. The furnace is the original from the 1987...

blower won't stop

Hi, got a rheem furnace (rgda-075a-cr). Recently, the blower started staying on constantly, regardless of whether the thermostat is calling for heat. We don't know when this started, but...

I suppose when you put it that way, there's not much sense in cheaping out. The way my luck goes, the thing would give way while I'm out of town and really make a mess.

Thanks for your response...

Hi,

I have a similar question. The water valve (pn: wh13x78, according to geappliances.com) for my GE front load washer (model: wsxh208a1WW) leaks a little where the plastic column/valve housing...

Morning NJ Trooper,

I do know (barely) how to check the ohms with my multimeter -- good thing it's smarter than am. The old thermostat worked like you said it would, although by the time I saw...

Talked w/Argus tech support.

Yes. My old zone valves are white-rodgers 3-wires. The thermostat and the gas valve are millivoltage (groan).

I'm afraid I did pay the guy.

At any rate, it's an old hydrotherm (looks like an HC-125, from the picture).
