  1. To be honest, although I understand a big chunk of the "stink" that's gone down, I'm not sure the Seniors would even want me regurgitating it here in the public forums. It's not pretty. But for all I do know, there's reactions and quitting and other stuff I can't even begin to explain.
  2. "The fun died", okay, but what killed it for you? The loss of one guy?
  3. Nobody is talking about anything. Even given the chance to speak directly to a head admin in "office hours" got almost no participation. That plus Head Admins dropping like flies without any explanation at all isn't helping. Oh well.

Yeah, oddly I kinda get that these days. Here's Maddie & Tae to tell you how that works.
  13. I really don't want to spend the money, but at some point the concern revolves around throwing good money after bad. At the current age of these furnaces, frequent service could suddenly become the rule. For just myself, that would be inconvenient; for a tenant, that could become a legal issue aimed at me. The leaking AC already has them on edge. They have two young boys. This is not a good situation for me. Suddenly scheduling a complete HVAC replacement for them would be a serious inconvenience for a day or two, but would restore confidence, peace of mind, and make me look like a hero. that is until they get notification of their rent increase for 2020! Only serious bummer is that this is always a X2 operation since this is a duplex. Although my AC is working perfectly, it would probably be replaced anyway. This is simply a matter of keeping both units in sync as far as major mechanicals are concerned. To a potential buyer, this speaks well of the overall maintenance and upgrade policy they are buying into. A hodgepodge of systems makes it look like JIT and deferred maintenance is the rule. That invites haggling over negative perceptions.
  14. Yes, in the heating season. Not in the cooling season. And I'll go out on a little bit of a limb here and say it seems more prevalent when there's been snow storms. Although the flue is capped in the same manner it has been since its installation, the flue temperatures have probably changed over time with the replacement or elimination of equipment connected to the flue. Maybe that has caused an increase of ice formation from combustion condensation combined with fine snow flakes blowing in under the cap forming a rim of ice that thaws and freezes as the furnace cycles? idk. The corrosion and drippage is ugly, though. Stains the floor. Looks all rusty and crusty at the bottom of the flue pipe.
  15. About the only thing I can think of is that I had the roof replaced in 2014. Although the water heater was replaced in 2006 and there may have been some drippage between then and 2014, it seems like it became really noticeable after 2014. That might have just been coincidence as the corrosion became more obvious over time. The new roof replaced old-style pot vents with ridge vents. That may have changed the temperature profile of the last 8' of chimney flue. Maybe that has caused increased condensation. The chimney enclosure is galvanized steel box originally made to look like brick, but painted a dark mocha brown when the roof was being replaced. That could change the temperature profile in the last few feet of the flue. Other than that, there's no new source of moisture in the area.
  16. The guy did mention dye testing, but that it's generally difficult to use to spot leaks in certain locations. I think he was mainly referring to trying to use a UV light outside around the valves and compressor coils. Sounded like he didn't want to go there.
  17. Duc banned Rugger recently. Not like it doesn't happen.
  18. @7Toes - isn't there a R410A sniffer that could be used to detect a leak. This business of hacking the system up into 4 parts and pressurizing them with nitrogen just seems so extreme! Is that really the only cost effective way?
  19. I own a rental property, a duplex built in 1976. Mirror image, tri-level, 1400sqft, side-by-side units. See picture. I live on one side, rent the other. Both furnaces are Lennox Elite Series 80+, 80% efficiency units (measured at around 87%). One (tenant's side) was installed in about 1996. The other was installed in 2000. They look identical, but their motherboards are way different. The older one has spark ignition, the newer one has glow stick ignition. The central air systems are 2 tonne Trane units installed in 2011 on both sides. Cost was right around $11k for the pair as I recall. A few weeks back, my tenant texted to say the AC was unable to push the temp in the building below 77ºF. An HVAC contractor came out to check the system over and found they needed to add 5 lbs of R410A which is close enough to the capacity of the system for them to say it was essentially dry. As they stated, these are sealed, closed-loop systems that theoretically do not lose pressure and never need to be "topped off", so when they do, there's a leak somewhere that needs to be found. They suggested proceeding through the summer and see what happens. If it stops cooling at some point this summer, then there must be a massive leak. Otherwise, the recommendation is to hack the system apart this fall, seal up the individual components, and pressurize them with nitrogen. Next spring, look to see which has lost pressure and replace that element of the system. Of course if it's the outside coils, forget it, the system is a complete loss and should be replaced. Another consideration: The furnace (being non-high efficiency unit) exhausts to a roof chimney through a 6"(?) galvanized steel flue. Up until 2006, the water heaters joined that same exhaust, but were replaced with units that exhaust through pvc out the side of the building. Over the subsequent years, moisture has been found to drip from the bottom of the furnace's exhaust. I'm told the reason for this is that, because the water heaters no longer exhaust that way, condensation that would otherwise be dried by the second unit operating up that pipe is now making its way down to the bottom and dripping out, not ot mention corroding the base cap of that pipe. Recommendation is to either get a chimney liner, or replace the furnace with high efficiency units that vent out the side of the building and abandon the old chimney altogether. Legal concerns: My tenants have two young boys. Naturally, when advised there may be a coolant leak somewhere in the AC system, they wanted to know if they are in any danger from the coolant chemicals. Looks like R410A is not classified as a hazardous material, but a tenant could still make one hell of a legal stink over something like this! So I'm faced with what to do? I've dumped $466usd into this already. There's another ~$500 coming at me in the fall to break the system down for nitrogen testing. Then there's the cost to actually replace the leaking component. Then there's around $300 - $500 to install chimney liners to correct the condensation issues in the furnace exhaust. Ot there's the cost to replace both furnaces with current high-efficiency units. In an effort to maintain symmetry and not make it look like there's considerable deferred maintenance in the building, I tend to keep major systems identical between the units, so replacing something on one side usually means replacing it on both. Two furnaces, two central air systems is what I'm possibly facing. My guess is somethere in the area north of $18k to do it all. Thoughts? It's always hard to know if the local contractors are just selling you ideas that are profitable for them or best for the customer. I'm not sure at what point I'm throwing good money after bad, or when I'm just being stupid and replacing too much. Thanks!

  22. Please discontinue using Norton. Who better to know how to protect Windows then Microsoft themselves. Use the included Windows Defender. It's all you need. If that does not stop the issues, I would suggest reinstalling your DX10 drivers. These can be found on the original game CD in a separate folder. DX10 version related corruption can have a significant impact on game stability. Sometimes a game installed after COD WAW will install its own DX10 driver that's newer/older and that may become an issue. Let us know it neither of these fixed the situation.
  23. About the Event: On May 14, 2019 Microsoft released security updates for a number of systems, including many which are typically unsupported. CVE-2019-0708 addresses a remote code execution vulnerability in Remote Desktop services. The vulnerability does not require user interaction and would allow attacks to spread from infected computer to computer similar to how the WannaCry ransomware attacks worked in 2017. A successful attack could allow programs to be installed, data to be viewed, changed or deleted or new accounts with full rights created. Security patches for the unsupported systems were released separately. Actions to Consider: The following versions are affected: Windows 7 for 32-bit Systems Windows 7 for x64-based Systems Windows Server 2008 for 32-bit Systems Windows Server 2008 for Itanium-Based Systems Windows Server 2008 for x64-based Systems Windows Server 2008 R2 for Itanium-Based Systems Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems Windows XP SP3 x86 Windows XP Professional x64 Edition SP2 Windows XP Embedded SP3 x86 Windows Server 2003 SP2 x86 Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition SP2 If you are running any of the above versions, Microsoft and Cybersecurity recommend updating immediately. Event Impact: Microsoft has not reported and Cybersecurity is not currently aware of any exploits in the wild at this time. Microsoft determined the risk of this threat to be great enough, however, to patch typically unsupported services as exploitation of the vulnerability could be severe. CVE-2019-0708 does not affect Microsoft’s most recent operating systems including Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows Server 2012.
