    Bingo! Depending on the complexity of your system, sometimes it takes a couple trips to fine-tune everything.

    It sounds like you were running auxillary heat as second stage. My bills for my heat pump (air source) was about $275.00 (Jan), $200.00 (Feb) plus propane for cooking and dryer and oil for hot water. I see Geo cost os lower for all electric homes.

    Glad your installer was able to find some things that he could improve. I suspect it was the "upstaging" selections on the intellizone controller which was using electric heat after so many minutes of calling for heat rather than only when the geo was actually falling behind and needing help. Hope you enjoy your new home. Brian.
