    No go on pretty much everything I wanted. They are blowing out stock on all this stuff so if you're lucky enough, your branch may still have an item or two. Boo :(

    This should clarify things.

    Yes, the Armstrong is a true modulating furnace but REQUIRES a 2 stage stat and proper settings of the dip switches.

    Gawd. He must have been desperately thirsty to drink the furnace condensate. It feels bad enough getting it on my hands, I can only imagine what it would do to your insides.
