    I can see the LZ004 ignitors or whatever goodman calls them failing quickly in a short cycle situation...but is that a round nitride upgrade that bit the dust as well? Or just a flat 001 (sorry - Carrier speak) or glowfly?

    " I don't want my furnace running, my bills are high enough as it is. The bigger the furnace, the quicker my house heats and the less the furnace runs."
    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.

    I've heard that before.... Told dad to put a 2 ton Condensor on the one end of the house instead of replacing it with a 3 ton like the one that was there. Told him it would run a little longer, but be more efficient and more comfortable. He didnt want to cuz it already costs too much to cool and he doesnt want them running longer. Last 2 summers have had weeks in a row of 100+ weather, way warmer than usual, and the unit still cycled in first stage (2nd is actually not even wired up!)

    We were at a rental last week. Landlord said he had a moonlighter replace the A/C over the summer and it didn't work well. 2 story on a basement, not particularly big. Faces south, heavily shaded. 30 year old Lennox furnace with 2 ton drive. Found a 3.5 ton Grandaire sitting there. 228 CFM/ton doesn't compute!
