What the fuck are you talking about? What "truth is missing"? I guess I better
add you back to the kill filter since you are obviously an idiot.
Its a new furnace installed in August of this year (in a new to me house). The
dealer installed a "programmable" stat. At the time, I had no idea I needed a
two stage stat so never asked about it when he installed it. He said the
furnace worked on a time delay for stage two. I happened to pull the cover off
and see it has a W2 terminal so thought maybe a two-stage stat would be better.
So I'm looking for opinions on it.
By the way, for guys that are going to say I hired a hack, the guy came out and
measured everything and did the manual j, and their service guy brought me a
written bid a few days later and explained things and gave me a chance to ask
any questions. I got two other estimates, one guy quoted a similar arrangement
but with Heil equipment and about $1000 higher price (I got a new air
conditioner also) and arrived at the proper sizes by simply looking at the
house. He wrote a bid on the spot. Other one did the estimate when I wasn't
there, but I've seen their installs in other houses and they did not look good.
They mailed me an estimate about 10 days later.
The Lennox guy did a nice, neat job. My only complaint would be that he didn't
put in the two stage thermostat and I consider it a small complaint since I
would have had to pay extra for it anyway since it wasn't in the bid (or in the
bid for the Heil two stage system). The thermostat they did put in was a
freebie when I mentioned that I didn't care for the Hunter stat that was there
already. The one the dealer gave me is a Robertshaw, so probably not a bad one,
just not really what I need or want.
I'll ignore Ransley since he thinks I'm making this all up for whatever reason.
So how did the friendly competant Hack check out the furnace for proper
operation after instal that is standard procedure. He didn`t, so you
don`t know if the 2 stage valve works. I didnt pay till I saw
everything function on my Lennox 2 stage Dimension.
I've got brochures and the owners manual just no installation manual,
which I know I don't need, but I like to be as informed as possible
about stuff I've paid a lot of money for. The furnace in my last
house had both manuals in a folder sitting on the return plenum, I
found lots of good info in there (how to change fan speeds, etc, that
was not in the owners manual). At least there is a wiring diagram
inside the blower door, but no specs for things such as the HUM and
EAC terminals, which I just might want to use at some point if I add
an air cleaner or humidifier.
I'll check with the dealer and see if he will get me the installation
manual. I just didn't want to have him wondering why in the world I
want it to begin with.
Thanks for your help.
