    The filter was only a couple months old and still pretty clean.

    I know our intake vent is way too small (under-sized) and needs to be enlarged. We've been in the house (18) years without any...

    Furnace Double Cycles......WHY ?

    I have a newer Rheem RGPS along with a new electronic thermostat.

    Correct. Nothing is insulated from what I can tell. Just all the original duct work from the 1950s!

    Good stuff! Thank you.

    Given we were dumping 5-10 gal/day last year, if I install a dehumidifier and drain it into the same pump as the furnace, do you think that pump can handle the xtra load ?...

    I suspect there is condensate in the furnace and ducts as well.

    The condensate line is clear and flowing. The pump is pumping as it should.

    The house does have updated (3 wire) wiring. Also, the furnace line is a dedicated run straight off the circuit panel box.

    I agree that a weak (no ground) connection will cause nuisance lockouts....

    No. It was installed vertically, but it was at such an angle it was touching the outer metal cabinet. The Tech bent it back a bit so it is vertically straight up and down.

    I should mention also we have (3) CO2 detectors running. One in the crawl space (not far from the furnace), 1st and 2nd floors. None have ever gone off.
