    I agree it is sad, you wouldn't believe how many "techs" call my company bc they can't figure out a York guard

    Yep, you need a tech that knows how to work on and wire up heat pumps.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Hey,

    Thanks for letting me know what the W1/66 does, interesting stuff. These are complicated little things aren't they?

    my indoor furnace is a DJ-40 Jos Perron unit, and my heat pump is a Coleman DRHS0301BD.

    Im looking at the manual of the heat pump online and could anyone confirm me what my tech said to me? Is it really a 2H/2C heat pump? http://www.master.ca/documents/0DRHS...Guide-1103.pdf

    Btw I'm not looking to do this myself, as I know it is against the forums policies. I am simply seeking information, so next time there is a tech here, I'll know if he knows what he's doing or not. Info is always good to have.

    Thanks again!

    Without a model and serial number, we can't tell anything.

    That unit is a single stage heat pump with a reciprocating compressor 12 seer. Your second stage heat is the electric strips in the air handler 2 heat/1 cool.

    Are you kidding me? What the new tech told me was wrong? Oh god, that is just pathetic. Gosh I hate paying good money for nothing.

    My current thermostat doesnt have any variable speed to adjust it. Just G to turn fan on and off. Do I need a new thermostat to replace this? My blower fan has 3 speed, therefore 4 wires coming out of it. Would it be controlled separately with the relays and contactors inside the furnace or do I need a new thermostat that supports variable blower speeds?

    Thanks alot so far, very helpful.

    Where are you looking for techs at???

    How do you know you have a variable speed motor????

    Are you sure this isn't DIY? I would have been in and out of your house in 30 minutes.................
    I wish I had a $1.00 for every response I deleted.....

    I know the motor is variable speed because I've seen the motor the old tech installed it. (Bought an old home with bunch of problems at a low price)

    Yes I'm sure this isn't a DIY thread, as this kind of work isn't my sort of expertise.

    All I want to know at the moment is if I need a new thermostat that has variable speed integrated with it, or if the speeds are adjusted inside the furnace, meaning my thermostat is fine (Honeywell VisionPRO TH8320U up to 3 heat/2Cool).

    I am looking for techs inside the gatineau zone in Quebec Canada.

    I hope you could come here, last techs that came here were 2 here for about 2 1/2 hours. Would be alot cheaper hiring you for 1/2 an hour! lol

    Thanks again

    LOL! Maybe he yelled out to guys hanging around in front of the Home Depot (after buying a thermostat) if any of them were techs and they thought he said "Mexs".
