need advise - heating and cooling for new house in canada (ont)
I came across this forum. Excellent resource - help for HVAC and related info and recommendations.
I am building a new house. Kinda CUSTOM BUILD - with major mods from Builders 'spec display home'> > with 3 levels , approx 2980 Sqft; with 9ft celing in basement & 1st floor but STD HEIGHT WALLS on top floor.
The house is to be ENERGY-STAR Compliant:
a) walls = 2x6 with R24 + outside sheet R10 under siding
celing = R50, basement = R24 -inside + R12 Foam outside concete - soil side. House has to be BLOW TESTED afor STAR ENERGY certifications
b)Useing 3M -PUNTURE PROOF FILM (inplace of TYVEK) commercial grade (makes the house real nice 'sealed envelope"
c)The Builder recommends ""Ducted heat and cooling"" to all floors (currently basemnt not ducted = add Approx 40x 60ft)
d) Builder's HVAC man = uses "ARMSTRONG" brands . and i am in favour of using LENNOX, or YORK/CARRIER
So I need some help with EQUIPEMENT sellections:
Here is what I ahd in mind:
SLP98V / CV21 (NAT GAS + SEER21)
I am being told I need 4.5Tonne system and 110,000 BTU
can someone here who has got ANY of these two equipement
tell me their experiances etc
Anyone else with comments , feedback and help would be much appracited.
Sorry this is my first post , not sure what else is missing
