    Doubt it. Winnipeg isn't at the North Pole...
    It's not much colder there than here in Calgary. Most units set up correctly here will run longer on low with more CPH unless coming off a setback.

    W1 is all that most furnaces need since they are so grossly oversized 90% of the time. Seriously, most furnaces are 2X the size they need. W2 would only be needed during recovery from setback.

    Lol. We saw -49c a couple years ago.
    The antifreeze in my car froze and cracked the head.
    My propane BBQ wouldn't light either. Before you ask, it was my birthday and I wanted a steak!
