    Help me experts!

    Thanks to all who provide information and knowledge to us confused homeowners!! You are a credit to your industry!

    Now that I installed a new unit I want to understand more and be able to adjust my system settings to optimum performance!

    I have a lennox xp15 with cbx32mv & c/s7000.

    For user settings should I change cooling & heating limits? (50 & 90F resp)

    How do I know if the installation settings are best?

    compressor stages are set at 2, I thought xp15 was single stage, or is this the fan setting?

    what does indoor heat stages mean? residual cool default?

    what is best deadband?

    smooth setback? SSR Stage 2 lock out? Temp Offset?

    stage 1 delay T? Stage 2 Delay T and Stage 2 delay time?

    Energy Star default yes or no?


    I can't wait to see what a can of worms I have opened know!

    Your dealer really should go over all this with you because some of those settings are not standard among all thermostats. Only thing I can tell from the surface is you really don't need to change the cooling/heating limits, unless you want to set your heat/cool at 45* or 95*.

    So, I would place a call to your dealer and explain that everything wasn't fully gone over with you and you'd like some guidance with it. There may be nothing to be concerned with. In the mean time, enjoy the great system you got installed.

    They went over user settings and I understand most of it. However I don't really know what all of the installer settings mean, how they really impact system performance, or whether I could modify them for different (or better) perfromance.

    Going over the installer setup options isn't really what the installers do with the homeowner, so it sounds like they didn't short-change you in going over any of its user features. But, if you give them a call, I'm sure they can clarify any settings on that particular thermostat that you may be unsure of.

    i agree. the one thing above all else i do , is to make sure the home owner is familar with the system and how i have set it up. it saves worry on your part and a possible call back to me. it's called customer satisfaction.
    remember, with electronics; when its brown,its cooking and when its black, its done!!!

    Installer settings are just what they say....for the installers. Be careful in there or you can change that stat to settings that will do you no good.
