    Here's and updated, for anyone interested. We just came through a week or so of low teens, ice, wind and snow. I couldn't be happier. You never know the furnace is running, but for when it's...

    I had the same question. If I'm following everyone's suggestions here, a few degrees variation in a daily T-stat program does not have a significant effect on efficiency (fuel usage). I suspect...

    The added cost is significant. Considering my system is now some 30% more efficient than the old, plus only seems to be running on 1st stage most of the time on top of that, the time it would have...

    No reason to rush an important decision, especially when there is so much to learn about! Plus, I've had quite a bit of fun learning about heat & AC. So far, I really love the furnace. It's really...

    I'm curious why you're pushing the mod so much? Agreed, it has the added benefit of the fully modulated burner, but other than that the Tempstar seems to stack up well to it. Thus, I'm having a...
