I'm running a duel fuel system up here in PA and just about ready to
install a high end 98% York gas furnace system... running a heat pump
down to 27 degrees. Do I need a bonnet sensor or something like that or
does the York come with it? Anyone know much anout these Affinity
I'm a GC but will probably need to bring in a mechanical but the guy I
know doesnt know much about the York gas furnace systems because they
need special training.
Any help would be much appreciated
Jimmy, the 98% Affinity York gas furnace systems come with a sensor.
You also need a 3 stage heat and 2 stage cool thermostat with humidity
control etc for your dual fuel system. Like the Honeywell thermostat
are others out there too. Maybe more expensive. You still need a bonnet
sensor, or heat pump kit...you need it because it stops the heat pump
and gas furnace from running simultaneously... they are only about
The bonnet sensor should be mounted between the furnace and the heat
pump evaporator coil (mounted on the underside of "A-Frame" coil if an
upflow application). If the sensor detects that the temperature of the
air flowing into the coil is too hot... it will stop the heat pump from
Same site probably has your furnace... is it this system you are
installing? Teh York 98% Affinity??
After the duel, one will have killed off the other, and
there will be no more conflict.
Sounds like you need to call a heating company in your area.
They may be able to perform some mediation. Figure out why
your heat systems are dueling. Perhaps they can be convinced
to work together, by arrangement, and then they can be a
dual fuel system.
You and your circlejerking butt buddeez can go away now.... there seem to
be people showing up who are actually 1. willing, AND 2. able to answer
You are still, however, welcome to come to Yonkers and SMD. I highly
recommend swallowing, as I take plenty of vits, and I'm sure there's some,
Ok hotshot.... tell us site unseen, and without the manufacturers
instructions for the furnace, or knowing what type of heat pump(single
stage? multi stage?), and without knowing what kind of control is being used
or required, to properly set it up.
Still no clue??
Never dealt with a modulating furnace??
Never dealt with a hybrid system??
Don't have the training??
I guess your EE isn't worth the used toilet paper its printed on. Now please
take your oral sex fixation and go play outside.
