    American Standard Variable Speed with Emerson 1F97-1277 Help??

    Hello, glad I have stumbled across this thread..a lot of good info. Hope someone can help me out on this..I have an

    American Standard Gold ZM down flow variable speed furnace 95% efficiency
    1st stage is 49,400
    2nd stage is 76,000

    The installers set me up with a Emerson (white rogers)

    Big Blue signle stage thermostat with Automatic Heat/Cool Changeover option
    Model - 1F95-1277

    Not sure on some of the settings..

    Should the T-stat be set to GAS or ELECTRIC fan setting?

    I have the T stat to slow cycle rate at 1.2 degree instead of the .6 degree for HEAT setting

    Also should I have the fast 2nd stage setting on?
    This is what fast 2nd stage setting is all about in the manual....

    Select Fast Second Stage ON or OFF In the run
    mode, with the fast Heat feature enabled (FA Heat On), if
    the Heat setpoint temperature is manually raised by 3F
    (2C) or more above the actual temperature using the
    second stage will energize immediately. With FA OFF,
    second stage will not energize until the setpoint temperature
    is 1F or more above actual temperature for more
    than ten minutes. The Fast Cool feature (FA Cool) provides
    the same controls when the setpoint temperature is
    lowered


    Thanks alot for the help..just trying to set up my home the best I can getting through Winter in Michigan. Thanks.

    Your contractor installed your thermostat but didn't set up these options? No DIY. Call the installing contractor back out and let them properly set it up.

    Hint: You have a GAS furnace therefore the fan setting should be set on _______.

    Correct. Sorry Just wanted to double check the settings, I had a leery feeling about the contractor involved..so figured I would seek out other opinions before dishing out more $ to untrustworthy 'contractors'

    It is difficult to get quality work, or maybe just my personal bad experience.

    Thank you guys for the help so far

    Find a tech that you trust and is good at their job then sign up for a preventative maintenance contract with that company and express how you would like that tech service your unit. The contractor locator on this site should be a good place to start in finding that contractor. Most of the "best in the biz" are members of this community.
