    Repair or replace HVAC

    An eighteen year old unit with issues should be replaced. The cost of the repair and then if you have another issue its money down the drain. I would get three prices on the replacement from reputable companies and make sure you compare apples to apples. The higher the EER rating does have a...

    Kingston brass kb36330PX Tub spout dribbling

    As others said it should drain in the off position but should not leak. The warning about installing a hand-shower is because it will not allow the trapped water to drain, like placing your finger over the end of a straw.

    Vanity gap suggestions?

    Really based on preference. 1/4" gap is doable w caulk but recommend filling the void w backer material prior to installing. There are several types of trim available that can be used but again based on personal preference.

    Carrier infinity with code 47 No 230V to unit - later no power at Thermostat

    When you checked for power what was it? Power to your tstat comes from a transformer located normally in the air-handler. Make sure ALL your connections are tight. Loose connections can cause multiple problems.

    96% high efficiency furnace

    Make sure the smaller unit is sufficient. Higher efficiency does not mean more cooling.

    Partitioning L-shaped room. Should I move a register?

    That's a common problem with this type layout (assuming there's no or very limited attic space). Normally the problem is the limited space to install ceiling insulation between the 2x6 rafters vs the knee wall. 8" return and the transfer duct should be sufficient. Make sure the flex is pulled...

    Heat Pumps without much redundancy in cold climate?

    As others have said, would not recommend it. Heat pump provides heat in two ways, what it captures outside and heat of compression. With what you have available outside, that just isn't enough.

    Distance between AC ducts and existing water heater

    Would look at clearance requirements for referenced tank/s, if that's ok then not a problem.

    Partitioning L-shaped room. Should I move a register?

    Agree with fitter30, move it. Doors don't need much undercut to be effective.

    Trying out CoolCalc - questions.

    If the info you have gives the sensible cooling, i.e. 48,000 btus, the remaining btus is latent (12,000). 12+48=60k btus or 5ton. 80% sensible 20% latent. The higher the latent capacity the better it is at removing moisture.

    Premier PEX Fittings Leaking

    Thanks fitter30, unfortunately I'm the builder. The plumbing supply company closed doors approx 8-9 years ago. I believe the book you're thinking is Thomas Register, haven't seen those in years but believe they are still around. Sounds like a good start. Do you have a recommendation for...

    Premier PEX Fittings Leaking

    JohnCT thanks for the reply. Do you have a preference for replacement? I'll need to get the PH checked. Yes agree about those not accessible. I cannot find any info on this manufacturer (Premier). If I knew they had issues I would start changing them out. Appreciate any advise. Ray
