    When I turned on my heat last couple days, the HVAC would kick on and then off again. When I removed the panel, there was water leaking from the exhaust tube (where that connection point is). It is a high efficiency HVAC (Lennox 5 years old). My guess is that one of these 2 areas is clogged...

    While drilling a hole into my bedroom wall to hang something, I accidentally drilled a little too far and pulled out some insulation. Not a lot, about a dime sized amount. It's interior drywall and now the hole is plugged with an anchor & screw. I assume this isn't something to worry about but...

    Hello all. This forum really helped me about 8 months ago when a chipmunk setup shop inside of my heat pump and decided to consume most of the wiring there. Thanks again for everyone's contribution. That problem has long been solved. New problem: I was visiting my parents house over the...

    Hi, I have a Trane XL15i Heat Pump that seems to be generating less heat this winter (although it still does generate some heat although it seems to feel cooler than last winter). It is currently 40 F outside (humidity 85%), and it seems that every time it runs it ends up going into defrost mode...

    Still lots of questions about this old 1931 house my son bought. It had a gravity feed furnace, which was replaced in 2012 with a new oil burner. I don't really understand how these things are supposed to work, but there are grates in the floors upstairs that are supposed to allow the heat to...

    Thank you in advance. I am finishing a basement. I have a vent (output) installed on one side of the room. I have an area on the other side of the room I want to install a cold air return. I am more concerned about heating in the winter as the basement stays cool all summer and the...

    My heating system is losing pressure and now requires topping up daily via the filling loop in order for the boiler to work. I have a Vaillant Eco boiler with a large tank in the loft. The filling tap is located next to the tank in the loft. There is a pressure gauge next to both the tank and...

    Hi, I recently moved into a three level condo. This house has the HVAC heating system and water heater (tankless) in the attic. As soon as I moved in, I replaced all the old thermostats (one in each of the three floors) with new Nest learning thermostats. During holidays, we are not at this...

    I'm thinking about buying a DIY mini split heat pump in my living room/kitchen. Are DIY systems manageable for 2 people who have never installed one before? Has anyone hired a taskrabbit for difficult installations?

    Hey guys, I'd really like to transition off oil heat in my log home and am trying to plan a pellet stove install. But I'm running into a problem. From what I've read, industry standard is to run both exhausted air outside, and pull fresh intake FROM outside as well. I have no issues running...

    I think I have an undersized pump, here are the specs and here is what I think happened.. I have two, 2 ton heat pumps; one for the main floor and for the second floor (~1300 sq ft each). The one on the main floor, however, also supports the basement (unfinished), for another 1300 sq ft...

    I tested a fiber glass rope gasket replacement on stove door and it seemed to fit tightly enough. However, now that I've glued it on to the door, it doesnt feel air tight. I can almost turn the door handle completely around so the new gasket seems less air tight than the one i replaced. How to...

    We have had this problem on an off for a couple of years. Heat won't come on most of the time. Fan only works, but as soon as we turn the heat on the fan stops. Sometimes it works, maybe later in the afternoon, for a while, then not again. We have had a repair guy out 2 or 3 times. He says...

    Hello. I just moved into a new home that has a 26'x26' garage. I'd like to heat this so I can do work in it throughout the winter (I am located in Northern WI). The previous owner put up particle board on the walls but did not insulate them. I'm not sure what the best use of my time/money is...

    I have a Weil-McLain EG-45 SPDN Gas Pilot boiler for my house. I started to have problems about a year ago where the spill-switch would get stuck, causing the Vent Damper to stop working, therefore no heating until I would have to manually press the little button on the spill-switch to re-start...
