    I had the new complete goodman 13 seer installed.

    They put in a Honeywell 8000 series tstat. This is 2 stage heat 1 stage cool with the tstat set to match.

    75 on the old system when it could get there feels cooler than when our current system says it's at 75.

    Is it possible the tstat is off?

    More likely the old stat was off! Haven't found a VP yet that needed to be calibrated.

    What about cycles per hour on the tstat? What's the difference between 3 vs 4-6?

    If the old stat was off, it may have allowed larger temp swings. When it got cold enough to shut it off, if felt and may have been colder than your current stat is keeping it. Your current stat is probably keeping the temp in a narrower range which can cause more cycles.
