I Have A honeywell Vision PRO 8000 2 stage stat on a Trane XV90 furnace .. The CPH is set to recommended setting fo 90% Effec. @ 3....My understanding of this is that the Unit will Cycle on and off 3 times an hour @ 50% load, on 10 min off 10min...now does 50% load depend on the outside temp,,lower temp higher load?......I guess this is good for efficiency...but isn't every house different with different heat requirements?.. my house is a split 3000 sqf.....Now if this CPH @50% load is true... what happens when the temp drops below the set point and its in that 10min off cycle, the systen does not come on untill it reaches the next 10min on cycle? This leaves my house cold with this cycle...If I set the stat to 4 or 5 CPH, running more often and shorter periods of times would this be more comfortable? of I would have to experiment with it to get the right combo.....I would rather have a t-stat with no CPH and run the furnace for the exact set point I have @ the t-stat, cycling on and off as needed to maintain the set point.
Please any suggestion of maybe finding a new t-stat ( White Rodgers?) or setting this on up for better controll of the set point to be more comfortable without that many cold times..
