90% to 95% American Standard

There becomes a time in a furnaces life that you need to way the repair cost versus a new furnace.. In this case it was time to replace. We replaced this 90% Trane(American Standard) with a new 95% American Standard.

I want to point out in the picture above the Electronic Air Cleaner (EAC), grey thing in the middle. If a service tech where to take out the instructions and actually read how these need to be installed he would be amazed. Almost every EAC I see is installed incorrectly. The air MUST be evenly distributed across the EAC cells and sized for the furnace CFM. In most cases this requires 24″ of straight ducting ahead and behind the EAC.

In this case the customer would be better served in my opinion with a 4″ pleated installed in the EAC box.

American Standard And Honeywell

Here I swapped out an older RHEEM gas furnace for a new American Standard 80%. This was probably the most common type of furnace changeout up to 2 years ago, now I am seeing more upgrades than anything.

And as you can see we added a Honeywell True Steam 6 gal Humidifier below the new American Standard gas furnace.

By adding the humidifier they will be able to maintain a minimum setting of humidity in the home. This is good for their health as well as energy cost. We also added the Honeywell 4″ pleated filter above.
