Now is a good time to bust a move on HVAC, lots of new tech and old tech tips are out there. Lets get the ball rolling on this one. I have tons of questions about the new stuff and tons of answers about the old stuff.I would like to read about central unit gripes, heat pump nightmares  ,window unit woes, hot surface ignition ,etc.

Need appliance parts? Call 877-803-7957 now!

Great suggestion! Since I'm not all-knowing, all-touching, and all-smelling when it comes to HVAC, I'll need one or more of the Masters to volunteer to moderate the new forum. Any takers?

Ok, applianceman, you've got the new HVAC forum. :dude:

You won't need any special moderator training... yet. Your main job as moderator will be to apply your vast and awesome expertise to answering HVAC questions. As the forum gains popularity and traffic, then we may need to explore your other god-like moderator powers. ;)

Thanks. Are there anyone of you, the handyman type, not the professional ones, ever installed a split central furnace/air system before? I am seriously considering putting a 4T Goodman system in. It seem easy enough. Applianceman thinks Goodman is a good unit. I'd love to learn from your experience. Any things will help. Are there anythings tricky about doing it myself? The reason for Goodman because that seems to be the only brand I can order online. Thanks in advance for your input.
