    Red face New Goodman on its' way-now what T-Stat?

    Our old gas furnace died. I read posts on this forum for hours and hours and researched as best I could. Ordered a Goodman GMV950704CXB Multiposition, Two Stage, Variable Speed Gas Furnace. (No A/C)
    Here are my questions, what thermostats can anyone recommend?? (I'd prefer a programmable one And, we'd like to have the option of using the furnace blower to circulate air in the summer.)

    What wire types do I run for the tstat?? Can I get that specific wire from Home Depot??

    Also, the old furnace closet had a 6" x 12" duct that ran from mid furnace level into the attic - for air intake I presume. New furnace is 95% efficient and only requires 2" pvc for exhaust thru room and a 2" pvc air intake into end vented attic. Can I rip out the old duct and seal up the holes in the closet?? A friend said I needed that duct in case there was a gas leak...I thought gas fumes are heavier than air...so I disagreed with him. So, can anyone help with these three issues...

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Along with the guys says about the site rules, who is going to stand behind the unit for warranty? I know Goodman won't since you may of ordered it online.

    Here comes the DIY police......You have the right to remain silent. You have the right not to speak DIY on this site. Anything you say can and will be used against your DIY install.
