I recently had the following new systems installed in my home:
- 1st floor: Lennox 15GCSX Heat Pac with Lennox Comfort Sense 7000 T-stat
- 2nd floor: Lennox XC15 and G60V furnance with Lennox Comfort Sense 7000 T-stat
The system has been running for about a week now but the humidity level still remains fairly high (between 67 and 69% according to the RH reading on the t-stat). At this point I am wondering if there is a problem. Since the RH is not reaching the 50% setpoint, the system only runs in dehumidification mode and keeps the temperature 2 degrees below the temperature set point (the dehumidification temperature variance). I put another Honeywell humidistat directly on top of the t-stat and it reads a much lower RH than the t-stat does. So I am wondering if the humidistat on the t-stat is not very good or if the entire system is having issues removing humidity from my house. The settings on the t-stat are:
- Dehumidification mode: Precision
- Compressor Stages: 1
- Fan Mode: Circ (35%)
Any feedback/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
