    Find someone that understands combustion. IMO there is other work to be done that does not involve replacing parts. But as stated above, it needs to be corrected. This is dangerous.

    Since you only get the balance of the original warranty, I would take the compressor now and save money to replace the unit with a properly sized system - indoor and outdoor when this compressor...

    It's a vent elbow. Not automatic. Suggest calling a technician that knows what they are doing to assess actual condition onsite. Might need to drain system and replace.

    Economy of operation is driving Elena's questions. Based on the calcs lkapagian provided, the balance points seem to be a well chosen compromise between thermal and economic.

    That is not an option Elena. Other than lockout limits the call for aux heat is temp based. If he ehatpump cannot maintain setpoint, aux will be engaged. In your case HP shuts down and furnace starts.
