    Those figures are to plug into a big long formula based on utility rate and location. Still, doesn't make sense. I've never used those numbers.

    Sometimes it is easy to fish a new wire, other times not. Something to ask. There are wireless stats you can get. Be nice for the Trane, with the Carrier you'd be 1/2 way to an Infinity control.

    The XV95 is not communicating. You use any 24v stat, again suggesting 2 stage. The Carrier can go either way. If you want to keep your current stat, just have the contractor do the advanced setup on...

    The original unit was sitting at a 90 angle to this one so it would have had plenty of clearance for air anyway. The back side a human might not have fit.

    The Infinity control will do so much more than a generic thermostat - not to mention the error messages that can be tracked.

    At least wire the stat to do the staging since the board won't allow a...

    There could be a minimum temp it goes to even if the thermostat can be set lower. That keeps the coils from freezing up. I'd expect it can do 68 though. And your 8 split sure is low.

    Get a 2nd opinion if you don't trust them. We have a big competitor that techs like to tell customers their comp is shot when it is just the run capacitor keeping it from running.

    Looks like Willie's condensing boiler is the Weil-McLain GV. They apparently don't have a modcon.

    The installed difference in price between an 80% furnace and a 95% furnace can be paid back in gas savings in under 10 years in many cooler climates. The installed price of a mod con vs an 83% cast...

    I don't get these idiots and their curb adapters. I bet there was a Trane there. Do they install another Trane? No, they put in that POS Carrier and the adapter turns it 90 and that's what they get....

    #1 doesn't make sense. His numbers call for 45,000 BTU, you've had a 60K all these years yet he proposes a grossly oversized Trane 80. What a maroon.

    Listen to tiger.

    Who doesn't? I haven't found one different from the rest. There were some oldies, probably 70s or older, that were reversed from today's standard.

    Might as well have the installer do it and test it. With Honeywell anyway, the warranty on contractor controls is 5 year, but 1 year for the similar product at the home store.

    Nothing extra is required for DOD. I haven't worked up the effort to install my duct sensors yet :D

    Just need the right setting on the stat, right wiring at the furnace.

    You'll need the lifetime heat exchanger warranty on the Carrier. It's aluminized steel and especially if it's at all humid there - will rot out in 10 years. On the Trane, the heat exchanger is...

    First, never fire the furnace with the service panel off. Flames will roll out! Dangerous.

    Without being there with a meter, no idea why you have heat & cool at the same time.

    Trane is a much better built A/C than the other 2 but despite it's "16 SEER" model name XR16, most matches are 14-15 SEER. The other 2 units with high efficiency blower motors and 13 SEER outdoor...
