Just had my new Lennox Hybrid Fuel system installed.
Variable Speed 80% Gas Furnace (model G60UHV60C100)
XP19 4 ton Heat Pump 18 SEER (model XP19-048-230)
5 ton coil (model C60D44+TDR)
Pureair Media Air Cleaner
Honeywell Vision Pro IAQ with sensor
April Air 600 Humidifier
The fan setting is set to “on”. The system setting is set to “auto”. Cooling temp target is 72* and has been met and the fan speed is now very slow. Yet, my humidity level over the last 12 hours in the house has stayed the same in spite of the settings above. The house feels sticky and feels higher than the 43% shown on the screen. According to the weather service the outside humidity is currently 73%.
When I look at the thermostat screen for humidity control, I see the current inside “humidity”(43%), I see the Auto or Off option arrows. But my only adjustment choice above the arrow set points for desired humidity is for “Humidifier”, not dehumidify. The IAQ manual shows the word “Dehumidify” above the set point arrows, where my only option when cooling is “Humidifier”. Is that right? Shouldn’t it say “Dehumidify”? If I lower the humidity set point to (35%), is the system trying to hit that target via A/C or is something amiss?
