Seriously though, what's the point of of having a heating or cooling system if you aren't able to use it how you feel comfortable? Zen, tell whoever asked you to disable the fan-on that they are taking the "V" out of HVAC! Fan-on is way cheaper than AC on, just saying.....

The furnace does not need G in heating. Disconnect the existing G at the furnace and abandon it. Jumper Y and G at the board. When it calls for heat the board energizes the blower on
Time and when it calls for cooling the board will receive Y and G and your good to go....

How much does it cost to run a fan on a residential unit anyway? I understand about watching your pennies but I can't imagine this saving a substantial chunk of change.

This is about fresh air ventilation when the wind is calm and there is no natural fresh air. All homes need an fresh air change in 4-5 hours when occupied.
This is about maintain <50%RH when outdoor dew points are +55^F to avoid mold/dustmites/biologicals.
In an affort to keep the %RH low, the designers are dictating "avoid fan "on" mode. Yes, it helps keep the %RH down, does little to provide overall indoor air quality. This is old thinking. While helping reduce indoor %RH duing low cooling loads, ducts grow mold, circulation of moist, fresh air must be avoided, and the moisture added by the occupants is not removed.
This is flawed indoor air quality strategy for any green grass climate for any home.
An air of fresh air in 4-5 hours is must for all occupied homes, not just that can have the best. The buildup of indoor chemical pollutants is affecting health in many suttle ways. The buildup of indoor moisture as generates many not totally understood biolobical pollutants.
Adding a filtered mechanical fresh air fan and a good dehumidifier allow air circulation, filtering, and real comfort.
The new small, whole house ventilating dehumidifier is a package that combines all of the needed feature to provide a simple solution to all of the above many IAQ problems and ultimate comfort at a reasonable price. This is the idea of the Ultra-Aire, Honeywell and other small whole house systems.
Real indoor air.Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"

The blower control board had a bad relay on one of my personal air handlers in my new house. Brand new unit. After the first time I started the unit the relay stuck "ON". My X13 motor ran for about 3 weeks before I obtained a warranty board and replaced it (my fault, more important issues). The electrical usage was probably negligible, or about as much as a 2 bulb motion light. It did keep the air exchanged!
