I have a few HVAC questions.I have the thermostat set for 60 degrees. When it reaches 60 degrees the furnace stops. I check the thermostat 30 minutes later it reads 61 degrees. How can the temperature go up when the furnace is off and the thermostat is set to keep the temperature to 60 degrees.Im looking to change the thermostat. I believe I have a 24V setup. Whats involved in changing it.I would like to install 2x2 tile duct vents. Whats involved in the installation? Which make / model would you recommend?I would like to split the duct work going into one room to another room which has no duct work. That being said what is best practice to accomplish this without performance issues with original duct.

I am looking at a commercial space that is about 6000 sq/ft

My name is ***** ***** I am looking at a commercial space that is about 6000 sq/ft with 20 ft ceilings. The space has no HVAC to speak of other than an undersized radiant heat unit suspended from the ceiling. My question is: for a room of that size, with no existing ductwork, how large of a unit(s) would be necessary to heat/cool the space? How much would such a unit cost?I am in Minneapolis, MN. Thank you!

I have baseboard radiant heat in my house, and in one room

I have baseboard radiant heat in my house, and in one room it does not seem to be turning off or responding to the thermostat. A few days ago, the room (a walk in closet, used to be part of the bedroom) was ice cold. I turned the thermostat from all the way down (off) up to 70. Now the room is really hot, and turning it back down all the way till it stops does not shut the heat off. Themostat is the old style mechanical turn dial type.

I have a Weil-McLain 1107-1 boiler to heat my radiant heat

Hello, I have a Weil-McLain 1107-1 boiler to heat my radiant heat floors in our home. In the past I turn on the propane line, plug in the unit and it cycles on, ignites and burner heats the water, etc. In the past this cycling may take several minutes to get to the ignition stage, some time it starts right up.Now it goes thru the starting cycle (blower fan comes on), but does not ignite. It stops and the following lights are lit.top flame light-offpressure-flashing redlimit-on redtstat-on redpower-on greenI have unplugged and plugged it back in several times, same result...do you think this is a pressure problem with the propane?We have a propane water heater that is work normally...Please advise, Thank you, Paul
