    Can the ClimateMaster Tranquility 30 Digital (TE) Series IOM (Model: TEV026BGD02CRTS) properly communicate with a Honeywell Steam Humidifier (HM750A1000) to only allow the humidifier to run when the fan is cycled and the heat is on? I currently have the wires running from the Air Proving on the...

    Hi All, We have a vertical, closed-loop waterless geothermal system, with backup heat, installed in 2010. I was hanging a barn door for my wife the other day, and dropped the rail, smashing the thermostat (RobertShaw 9420). I went to Walmart and picked up a Honeywell Wifi thermostat that...

    I recently installed a "pump and dump" Geothermal HVAC system that draws water from a 230V deep well next to a pond on my property, and then discharges the water into the pond. I installed a sub-panel at the pond/well location to service the well pump and a 230V pond aerator (and to accommodate...

    I recently replaced an old Water Furnace geothermal unit with a 3 ton GeoCool geothermal unit. I used the existing closed horizontal loop with a non-pressurized flow center. The issue is that I'm not getting much cooling from the unit. I'm only seeing around 71 degrees out with 77 in. I'm...

    The Rheem (Ruud) 36K split Geothermal Heat pump comes with a ComfortControl2 thermostat which is designed for normal heat pumps. Due to it being indoors, there is no thermostat in the chasis. Is there a way I can get my outdoor temperature reading to work, and stop flashing "---"?

    Hello, I have a raised house in New Orleans and are looking to do Geothermal, radiant heating, and if possible radiant cooling. Does anyone know about if radiant cooling works with a geothermal system? And does anyone know if you can hire a driller to do a system that isn't the same guy who...

    I am from Northern Ontario where interest in heating is very critical Using propane at a lake location with lake water purification by UV Geo thermal looks too expensive but a new driven pipe system may improve costs ?"thermopost" is screwed in up to many feet deep & circulates to the botoom...

    For the past month I have been trying to figure out why my Climatemaster TTS 5 ton split system has not operated up to expectations, or specs. We were happy with the performance when we turned it on back in mid October and up until the cold snap before Christmas. Something happened and the...

    I'm very new to this subject, just saw it on Discovery a few weeks ago. And I'm not at all technical, so when I went through some of the posts here on this subject, I only understand a few %. This is my situation: I have a piece of land where I keep tortoises and I need to keep them warm in...
