    Any chance it had a crank case heater? I would think that would be just about mandatory if you're going to run it in that low a temp.

    Snow Inside heat pump!

    Hi all,

    Of the 12 quotes I got only 1 listed the coil brand and #.

    Isn't there a way to test the integrity of the heat exchanger?
    Fire up the furnace and test for CO in the supply maybe?

    You're comparing Carrier to McDonald's? Expensive high-end HVAC to cheap fast food, I gotta say I don't follow your analogy.

    I think my Bryant Evolution's constant fan speed is 50%, 75%, 100% but can also variably stage differently depending on what level of heat/cool is called for and adjust for filter restrictions.
