Comment on this HVAC System

arsenalfanSeptember 20, 2012

Complete HVAC rookie here. Got initial specs on HVAC system for 4000 sq ft above ground home (and 1000 sq ft basement) in DC area; any comments or suggestions are appreciated. No specific model# yet (I am working on it) and I meet with the HVAC installer next week.

My GC proposes:

Humidifier: April Air Bypass Model 600

Media Filter: Honeywell Model HF150E1026 (16x25)

Zonex Zone Damper Control System (2X) (Separates Basement & 1st Floor)

Thermostat: Honeywell Digital Model TH3210D (All Zones)

Zonex Zone Damper Control System (2X) (Separates Master & 2nd Floor)

Carrier Infinity Series Equipment (VS/18.5 SEER)

Thanks in advance for any insights!

It this is a two story home your GC should be recommending HVAC systems for each floor. A 18.5 SEER system is wasteful for the DC area. A 15-16 SEER system is fine.
