    Anybody know if the T-stat actually uses the sensor input for anything or is it just to display the outdoor temp on the t-stat?

    Jeff - I'm a geek too. If you look inside the little window on the furnace you should see a display. There's always something shown there. Next time the furnace is running look in there and see...

    I don't see what's wrong with the existing thermostat that is available. I have yet to see any thermostats that were "pretty" - so I certainly wouldn't call it ugly. In fact it looks not too...

    Tstat

    The modulating thermostat is made by Protech - I've seen them online for <$250. My dealer charged me $300 when I had my system installed.

    More than half the basement will have a drop ceiling because of access to plumbing - this will also allow relatively easy access to other areas if I need to run wire or anything in the future - there...

    Finishing basement and will soon be covering up some of the duct work with drywall. Because of different heating and cooling loads I have to readjust the dampers on the branch runs different between...

    There's no doubt I can get the require CFM to those rooms, but the question is (at least I think) do I have to restrict flow too much else where to get it. I assume a pro would need to measure...

    That's a good idea about marking them - I'll definately make those accessible.

    Thanks - IThey installed one above the furnace (above ac coil). I think that's where its supposed to go.

    Perhaps the duct work is marginal for cfm flow - but I can't believe it is that far off. I can't measure cfm and to be honest I can't afford to pay someone to replace all my duct work. Infact for...

    Yes - I discovered that when we moved into this house a few years ago. The old 125K BTU furnace (new one is 70K), would roar through the registers nearest to it - not only higher air flow but much...

    No they are not all the same size. Most of the branch ducts are 6" but there are some that go to small rooms like the bathrooms that are small - 4 or 5". I know For the bedrooms there are two ducts...

    With the mod the difference in temps between the two sides of the house is better than it was previously with the grossly oversized furnace we used to have - I assume due to longer run times. As far...

    I'm in the process of finishing the basement and am contemplating a few things before everything gets closed up and its too late to change anything (finished ceiling).

    I live in a 1800SF ranch in...

    That's a simple feature on the stat that is easy to enable, I used it last summer and thought it worked great. I don't feel a need for anything more elaborate than that living here in Michigan.

    Beenthere - we've already walled off some areas for storage so I don't think we'll be walling off any other areas. I was just wondering if it would help air circulation to have two separate ones...

    Thanks all for the feedback.

    I guess the easiest thing for me to do is to keep the registers in the ceiling and just drop the return to the floor.

    I had a new Rheem modulating furnace installed...
