Thanks to all of you for your guidence, much appreciated.
The yellow wire is now good to go, and a bit shorter
Good point.Dont regret that you spent a couple hours familiarizing yourself with your system, I am pletny familiar with the Mod and still play with it just for fun.
As of now, the difference between the Rheem and my old furnace is noticable but subtle at best. Not as big of a difference as I made myself believe based on what I read. Although the noise when heating is far different than my old furnace. For kicks I may use my spl meter to measure the db.I'm looking at the Rheem myself. How is the noise level?
However, I'm pretty convinced the unit isn't fully modulating. I decided to call my dealer and a tech will be comming out early next week.
The furnace appears to run the fan during the heat cycle no different than when it does not call for heat.
I have stuck my nose in the manual and learned of the various dip switches, and they are all at factory default. It doesn't appear that this should be the case. So, I believe this should certainly be an installer fix, especially the SW3 set.
Hopefully in a few days all will be good. I'll chime in then and give my impressions. The temps haven't moved much past the mid 40's for a high, so I will have ample time to play with my new toy after the installer works his magic.
Thanks again boys.
